Sonoya Mizuno

Sally Field

Plot:

Two strangers are drawn to a mysterious pharmaceutical trial that will, they’re assured, with no complications or side-effects whatsoever, solve all of their problems, permanently. Things do not go as planned.

Review:

This started out super weird and I wasn’t sure what was real or not. The world was not our own, they had tech we don’t, but it wasn’t magical. It was very odd. As the show progressed I no longer had that issue, even though, they were reality hopping. Things were still weird, but I knew what was happening.

I never warmed up to Jonah Hill’s character. He seemed very devoid of emotion and I had a hard time caring about him at all. Emma Stone, on the other hand, I loved. She wasn’t a very likable character, but I got her emotion and I enjoyed watching her.

I hesitate to say the show was entertaining. I don’t think I enjoyed hardly any of it, but it wasn’t bad. It just ended up not being my cup of tea.

Plot:

After making their way through high school (twice), big changes are in store for officers Schmidt and Jenko when they go deep undercover at a local college.

Review:

That movie had no business being 112 minutes. Too long. I was barely holding on by the end. Also the jokes about it being a sequel got old fast. I knew they were coming, every review I read mentioned them, but holy cow.

Credits were possibly the best part of the movie.

Kyle Chandler

Plot:

Based on the true story of Jordan Belfort, from his rise to a wealthy stock-broker living the high life to his fall involving crime, corruption and the federal government.

Review:

Holy shit this movie is depraved. Also, and I’m just going to come right out and say it, Leo’s butt is not that impressive. I know, I know, it’s hard to believe but it’s true.

Basically this movie shows you that if you commit a certain type of crime, no matter how fucked up, you can get three years in a country club and come out still on top.

It pays to be rich mother fucker.

Also, speaking from personal experience, the stock market is a lot more complicated then they make it seem. Of course, it’s like that with most jobs that Hollywood portrays.

Fuck. Fuckity. Fuck. Fuck. Cock sucker. Snorting coke off a hookers asshole. Titties. Bush. Ass. More titties. Fuck. Fuck. Shit Mother Fucker.

Plot:

A pair of underachieving cops are sent back to a local high school to blend in and bring down a synthetic drug ring.

Review:

Ok that humping scene was hilarious.

“You’re in too deep man.”

I’ve never understood why people would want to go back to high school. Just don’t get it. My high school years weren’t horrible, it’s not like I’m scarred for life over what happened there, but they weren’t awesome either. I have no desire to go back to that time, I have no regrets, nothing I would want to do over, so that part of the movie didn’t resonate with me.

Overall the movie was pretty funny. Loved the reveal at the end. This movie knew what it was and didn’t try to be anything more.

3/5
