Enthusiastic film lover
Tom never disappoints me when it comes to providing great entertainment made for the big screen. He has a charm about him that captivates me unlike any other entertainer. Whether it’s perfecting his own crazy and dangerous stunts from films like those in the Mission Impossible franchise, making me gawk at his marathon-like running ability, or even lending his suaveness in the form of a quick smirk, Tom Cruise has a way of getting my butt in a movie theater…
Justin Simien is back with his satire flair to blend horror and comedy as a means to tackle and examine “bad hair” and the roots of all its evil. The writer-director, most notably recognized for his 2014 Sundance directorial debut, Dear White People, has a keen way of criticizing cultural & social problems through humor and irony.
This time around, however, he neglects to criticize the actual politics and issues concerning the concept at the center of his latest feature. As a result, Bad Hair comes off as a second-rate and dishonest commentary that contains everything but the actual commentary.
How do you manage to waste Ben Affleck, Willem Dafoe and Anne Hathaway? Write a shitty script, that's how.
Not only does The Last Thing He Wanted not know what it wants to be, but even in figuring itself out, it's completely boring. These characters do some really dumb shit for no reason, and things are overcomplicated. I mean seriously. The story could've been told in 1 hour lol. This really annoyed me 💀
