20th Century Women (2016)

I wish this was a film made before film was even invented. This movie was as fast moving as a stalled-out car. None of the characters had moved forward in their lives and the relationships were really awkward and dumb. I hated the Gerwig & Crudup relationship and don’t even get me started on the main boy’s relationship with Elle Fanning. Talk about being a giant cuckold. The movie isn’t incredibly long, but it felt like it took centuries to go through. I wouldn’t recommend this at all unless you seek frustration.

A Reason to Believe (1995)

This movie may sound like a Christmas film with its title but it’s actually about campus date-rape. Yes, the film does delve into feminist theory but it does a pretty good job of showing both sides of the issue on this touchy subject. I mainly watched this movie for Holly Marie Combs from Charmed (she’s one of my favorites) but I really did like Allison Smith from the West Wing as the lead character. The main frat guys are incredibly unlikable and you’ll find yourself getting pretty mad at several of the characters in this film. Some of the acting is spotty and it does reek of 90’s-ness (bad baggy clothing and all). It does have a good moral and it keeps you watching as you aren’t sure whether people are going to believe the main character or not.

65/100
