    The Man From Toronto

    ★★

    ...they named a screw-up after me?

    ...they did, and they were right! But to be honest, the one who really screwed up this film is not Kevin Hart but Woody Harrelson's bored and implausible character. Again, a netflix production wasted some acting talent on uninspired scripting.

    Spiderhead

    ★★½

    Within the sterility of an ex-machina-setting, the old and nasty evil-scientist-story developed. Even if the test subjects are convicted criminals, there is no doubt about, who must be the real monster and this is forseeable right from the start.

    Baby Driver

    ★★★½

    First of all, it was fun to watch Baby Driver. The movie has it's own style and the way, how musical pieces are implemented, is very unique.
    Weak points are the clichéd bog-standard storyline and the car chase scenes. Those action scenes appear very hectic caused by numerous annoying cuts. For a movie, that mainly deals with the work of a getaway driver, this must be critical. So in the end, it's nothing more than a okay blockbuster, that cannot stick with the much more mature Drive.
