Week in Review: 6/25/17

Movies I Watched in the Last Week

1) Masterminds - Eh.  It's pretty dumb and has too many gross-out jokes in it.  But if I'm being honest, the gross-out jokes were almost the only parts I laughed at, kind of just as a reflex.  I'm also not sold on this idea that you can make any character funnier by simply effecting a stereotypical southern accent.  No wonder the red states hate Hollywood - if this is your attitude, you're just being a dick.  Where was I going with this?  Oh, right, this movie isn't very funny in my opinion, even though the cast is pretty good.

My Rating: 2.5 / 5

2) Catfight - I'm going to do a more detailed review later.  Long story short, it's an okay comedy that's sometimes brilliant, but which works better when it lets its drama and ugliness breathe.  If some of the jokes were reined in I think this would be a fantastic little character study about self-destruction.  As is, its still good... just not great.

My Rating: 4 / 5

Total: 2 Movies

Minutes I Spent Writing in the Last Week

1) Untitled Abduction Horror - About 4 hours writing the first draft. Current draft length: About 4,000 words.

Total: 4 Hours

The Winner: Minutes!

Finally got something written!  Only took me like two months.  Now I just need to finish like three books in the next four months and I'm all set.
