#2,262: Hardcore Henry

Kind of a rough week for movies...

Welcome to Me - ★★½☆☆
This one slipped by last year. I guess it's like a somewhat better Joy? Lower key, but less absurd.

The Boss - ★★★☆☆
I imagine that I don't like comedies very much, so maybe it's the saving grace of Moviepass that we just go and see everything and more often than not, movies are better than they look. Probably my favorite Melissa McCarthy movie to date? Here's hoping that changes this summer.

The Thread - ★½☆☆☆
Like an unskilled-and-unaware onion.

Hardcore Henry ★☆☆☆☆
I do like movies. Sometimes, like with The Boss for example, they can be intriguingly misrepresented by their own trailers. Sometimes I think it's interesting that the target audience for movie advertising doesn't seem to be people that like movies. Anyway, if you can believe it, Hardcore Henry is not as good as it looks.
