2.5/4 98% Hunt for the Wilderpeople (2016) "Given Waititi's creativity, I was a little disappointed in how few surprises there are in Wilderpeople. But it's all right to be just a well-executed charmer -- and this movie is certainly that. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Jul 8, 2016
2/4 36% Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates (2016) "It breaks no new ground, and the desire to offend for its own sake gets tiresome. But Mike and Dave keeps the ball in the air for 98 minutes, and it is pretty good at showcasing funny people who happen to be women. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
