X-Men: Apocalypse Trades Character Development for Generic Evil

Screw The Critics #1: Joy

A continuing segment in which Lily, intrepid blogger, goes head to head with the most dastardly of foes: Rotten Tomatoes. Group-think be damned! In this segment, we look at the new David O. Russell movie Joy starring Jennifer Lawrence.  Who will win? Hint: it’s Lily. 


Rotten Tomatoes Consensus:  Joy is anchored by a strong performance from Jennifer Lawrence, although director David O. Russell’s uncertain approach to its fascinating fact-based tale only sporadically sparks bursts of the titular emotion. Score: 58%
