2/5 41% Oldboy (2013) "Joe walks out of his prison cell with a singular sense of focus; Lee's Oldboy never achieves anything like that kind of clarity. " ‐ The Dissolve

3.5/5 60% Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa (2013) "Bad Grandpa is less a feature than a filmed investigation into the effect of dick jokes on the human psyche, like a Milgram experiment where the shocks are real, and Milgram himself is receiving them. " ‐ The Dissolve
