Long Shot (2019)

STORY – 1
DIRECTOR – 0
ACTOR – 1
MUSIC – 0
CULT – 0

 

VERDICT – 2/5

 
PROS –
1) The only bearable scenes of the movie are between O’Shea Jackson Jr. and Seth Rogen.
2) Andy Serkis as Parker Wembley – unrecognizable in that makeup.

 
CONS –
1) While the complete movie was already ruined in the trailer, I decided to watch it anyway for the sake of Seth Rogen but the movie is a big bag of disappointment.

Ingrid Goes West (2017)

STORY – 1
DIRECTOR – 1
ACTOR – 1
MUSIC – 0
CULT – 1

 

VERDICT– 4/5

 

PROS –
1) Definitive Aubrey Plaza film. A must watch for millennials.
2) A young psychotic woman goes to Los Angeles to befriend a social media influencer only to discover how shallow her idol really is.
3) A modern-day horror tale of social media obsessed people chasing pseudo-celebrities and seeking validation from strangers in the form of likes and emojis.
4) The climactic #iamingrid is even more horrifying as a sociopath like Ingrid who tried committing suicide is venerated as a role-model and inspirations by millions. The irony is frightening.

 

CONS –
N/A
