The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them (2014) | since it was supposed to be a double feature telling the story from His perspective and Her perspective, needless to say, this is not what Ned Benson and co had envisioned. having worked on the film, it has a special place in my heart, but looking at this condensed version objectively, the story feels hollow, choppy, and reeks of white privilege melodrama. the Him and Her versions come out next month, and while I’m interested to see how the gimmick works, i’m still contemplating whether i want to sit through another two versions of this story…

Chef (2014) | let it be known that when the writing is weak (the proportions are off and Jon Favreau’s Chef Carl Casper doesn’t actually have any obstacles to tackle), celebrity cameos, food porn shots, and an over-saturation of soundtrack won’t make it any better.
