Review: 

Seeking a Friend For the End of the World is a movie that gives you a variety of aspects to make it a really unique view. The film offers comedic relief, a life moral, and a bit of romance and uses the end of the world to get the message across that it is never too late to find love. Seeking a Friend delivers a new twist on the dark and gloomy prospect on the extinction of the world. Dodge and Penny played by Carrell and Knightley, really present two character that are so different at first, but through their adventure in the end of times, they realize that one another are what they were looking for their entire lives. 

Other appearances by Connie Britton, Patton Oswalt, Rob Corrdry, and a few others really add to an all-star cast in the beginning of the film, making for some really funny moments. 

Overall, Seeking a Friend for the End of the World is an interesting movie that is worth the watch. 

Grade: 3/5

Review:  Hustle sat on "My List" on my Netflix account for quite a long time. Parked on the couch in the middle of the night with a newborn, and jonesing for some hoops, I dove in on what I read (and heard from others) was a "really good film". I'll give away the suspense, I thought Hustle was decent. It felt too cliche and had little depth, but still, a really good film.  The
