  • Scream 2

    Scream 2

    ★★½

    this honestly didn’t do much for me but neve campbell’s haircut did

  • Run

    Run

    ★★½

    I honestly don'y have much else to say about this other than it was entertaining? Had a couple of exciting twists and turns in the plot, but it felt very formulaic. Could also be rather cheesy at times.

  • When Harry Met Sally...

    When Harry Met Sally...

    ★★½

    You see, they made Harry's character so unlikable that I honestly didn't even want them to get together. Sally is so gorgeous, talented, and smart and deserves better than to hear Harry's misogynistic jokes for the rest of her life.

  • Bad Education

    Bad Education

    ★★½

    Not sure if it is "correct" to criticize a film based on a true story for being predictable, but this was very predictable. Without Hugh Jackman's performance, I don't think I would have enjoyed watching this to be quite honest. The storyline felt rather spotty and like it jumped around without explaining things at times which was rather annoying.

    I didn't hate the film, but if you're looking for an exposé of malpractice within the real world I would point you in the direction of Spotlight (2015), as I feel it was much more captivating than this.
