Adam Driver Movie Marathon

Now that I’m in the interim between graduating and starting my MFA, I decided to catch up on books, T.V. shows, and movies that I missed while wrestling with my thesis.

Chappie: A Slapdash Review

I have just come back from watching Chappie.

You all need to see this movie.

I’m not going to lie, the idiot ball gets tossed around like the characters were playing a game of volleyball. You will see the plot holes, but at the same time, you will see its heart. I really loved how it approached issues of masculinity, child development, and what a soul could possibly be.

This movie is also fucking hilarious and cartoony, but it works. I demand all the gifs of Hugh Jackman in his mullet and khakis glaring daggers over his cubicle wall.

Rating: See the damn movie
