    Mr. Right

    ★★½

    Sam Rockwell and Anna Kendrick were the only reasons I watched this. Sure enough, they're the only worthwhile parts. Kendrick is fun to watch and very quirky and Rockwell is always a blast. He just has this vibe surrounding him and his own brand of charm is infectious. 

    Everything else is pretty much a throwaway. The script is weak as there's essentially three sides to a hitman story and all of them were uninteresting. The rom-com aspect is also as basic as you can get.

    What a waste of Sarah Paulson. 

    A serviceable thriller in my mind, but one that feels lacking and is largely forgettable. By the time it reaches its final moments, my interest had already begun to dissipate. I thought Trevante Rhodes and the incorporation of the motherhood/survival themes were the best parts. 

    After watching this, I'm even more surprised as to why this has so much hype and attention around it.

    ★★★★

    Alfonso Cuarón is truly a master of his craft. Every aspect of this is just so controlled. I found myself forgetting that this was in black and white since I was just struck by how stunningly staged every moment was. With his steady camera movements, Cuarón depicts life and the greater society at a time of change. Roma opened my eyes as to how vital family bonds are, so that we never have to face life's difficulties alone.

    I love how I only know Adam Sandler from this film and Punch-Drunk Love. So in my books, he's a pretty good actor haha. 

    This was fine. Maybe I would've appreciated this more if I was white and living in New York. The whole cast is very good though with Emma Thompson being the standout for me.
