Ripley's movie review

The Missing Ingredient (Anders): Campy and would have been marginally ok (if you like that sort of thing) except the director chose to use some really stupid cheap special effects which completely ruined it.

The Wrong Man (Rockwell): Better than the first one and kinda bizarre but not great.

The Misbehavers (Rodriquez): Loved this one. Antonio was great, the kids were good, and the story was weird and funny. By far the best of the bunch.

The Man from Hollywood (Tarantino): Quentin shouldn't have cast himself in this part. I find him annoying at the best of times and in this one, he talks too much and, as a result, takes far too long to get to the real story. I liked the ending though.

Roth as Ted the Bellhop was creepy, weird, and annoying. However, his character improved as the movie went on. Still over-the-top but better.

Watch the third story and skip the rest.
