Movie Review: Southbound

Screen Shot 2016-02-08 at 10.14.39 AM_665x443

Directors: Matt Bettinelli-Olpin, David Bruckner, Chad Villella, Tyler Gillett, Patrick Horvath, Roxanne Benjamin, Justin Martinez.

Rating: 6/10

The Good: Anthology films are always interesting. So is this one. The best segment of the movie is the one where a man struggles to get home after an horrific incident. It’s pretty much intense, filled with gore & a tiny wee bit of a suspense. It does have a very compelling score. The kind of score which i like in such genre of movies.

The Bad: Honestly, this movie makes you feel disappointed. You’re left with a feeling of emptiness. It tries hard to scare you, but it hardly does. Things are left unclear. And there’s this segment in which a brother is in search of his long-lost sister. This particular segment absolutely makes no sense at all and in the end is nothing but uninteresting. The other segments are strictly average, the last segment gets predictable and all we are left with is one good segment in the entire movie. It’s not a bad movie overall. Just not satisfying enough.

Movie Review: The Duff

image

Cast: Mae Whitman, Robbie Amell.
Director: Ari Sandel
Rating: 6/10
The Good: Almost the entire cast of the movie helps elevate the predictable teen comedy. The chemistry between Whitman and Amell surprisingly has a nice spark. And of course, the cool soundtrack is an add-on.
The Bad: The so called teen comedy turns into a typical “rom-com” gradually. Still, manages to be a lot better than many other movies of the same genre.
