Film Review

After a few minutes of this film….not knowing anything about who directed it, who wrote it or what it was about..going in completely "blind" ….I guessed it was written by a guy. And, yes…it was. I'm so tired of movies where women characters are written this way…as with the Brittany Snow character. I don't know too many girls/women etc. that would find a man attractive, almost a stranger they've known them such a short time, after he talks to her like she is a complete idiot and calls her almost every horrible name in the book, then is physically threatening. COME ON!!! What is that saying to young women out there? Look hot, be shallow and it doesn't matter if a guy is clean/gross/smokes/is abusive, you are going to find that guy SO irresistible in a few hours that you will want to give your virginity to him in a room down the hall from a guy who LOVES you and treats you like a queen. BULLLLLLLLLL. While there are some women of all ages who might d…

'The Vicious Kind' maybe a harsher title than the movie actually is, but doesn't take away from the excitement that Adam Scott's classic manic anger and ass-hole remarks deliver to the film.The film goes through Caleb's(Adam Scott)spiralling depression as hes dealing with a heartbreaking break up and having to be reminded of it based on the fact that his younger brothers girlfriend looks so much like his ex.The problem with this film is its too straight forward, especially for now-a-days. It never really dives into who anyone really is or what they truly feel or does any of the issues in the movie ever get resolved. You never get to find out who Calebs ex really is, or that its wrong for Caleb to feel something for someone just because they remind you of someone you dated. This not explored makes for an unfulfilled movie with wasted ideas, but the performances are really the heart of the movie between Brittany Snow and Adam Scott. Alex Frost is alright here bu…

"The Vicious Kind's" chief flaw comes into sharp focus during the film's opening minutes, when a charmless misogynist, Caleb, picks up his younger brother and a college girlfriend in order to drive the couple home for a weekend visit. Caleb's toxic sarcasm, combined with his hostility and lust towards women, is so extreme that one instantly despises the film's protagonist. Except for Brittany Snow as the brother's girlfriend Emma, none of the other characters are sufficiently developed or sympathetic enough to hold one's interest, but unfortunately her credibility is undermined by inexplicable behavior. After Caleb's initial rudeness towards her, Emma has every reason to regard him with open contempt, but irrationally the script demands that she starts being attracted to this embittered, condescending, self-pitying loser.In addition to these defects, the film's journey back to the origin of Caleb's issues is pedestrian and repetit…
