    The Outsider


    If you can overcome your disdain for Jared Leto and/or white savior tropes, The Outsider is worth a watch. I seem to be in the minority on this opinion, however.

    When We First Met


    I enjoyed the premise of this movie (a mix of Groundhog Day and Big) but I couldn't help think of Adam Devine as an off-brand Jack Black. Still, it was painfully relatable and pretty amusing.

    Wow. Holy shit. That was like Full Metal Jacket: The Musical. J.K. Simmons is electric as a hard-ass Jazz band conductor and, while I didn't like his character, Miles Teller really puts it all out there as his ambitious, young student.

    Kind of like John Wick, if John Wick were Amish and couldn't drive. Or shoot. Or fight, really. Not sure what the point was of the main character not being able to speak, aside from giving more lines to Paul Rudd, who makes this movie slightly bearable.
