Movie review: Thoroughbreads

After the movie I knew that I was not the target audience. I didn’t care for Thoroughghbreds. I’m sure there was a point to the movie, or some message that I just didn’t get. It’s hard for me to critique the pacing and directing, since I didn’t understand what the writer and or the director wanted me to feel — however, the acting was very good. It was bittersweet to watch Anton Yelchin give a superior performance — which turned out to be his last; RIP Anton, you are missed. Olivia Cooke and Anya Taylor-Joy played off each others strengths and weaknesses beautifully.

I found the movie itself to be uninteresting and boring. But for the three fine performances I just stated, I would have asked for my money back.

RunPee Mom is our emotional bedrock. Without her, RunPee never would have lasted a decade as an app (which is since the dawn of time in internet years). She’s our biggest cheerleader and an unending source of unconditional love. She works cheerfully and tirelessly, seeing any movie we ask of her, writing interesting reviews, and being our…well…MOM. Her genres of choice: kiddie flicks, animated movies, emotional dramas, historical features, war films, diverse biographies, and even dense, diabolically plotted thrillers. She knows more about famous and infamous figures in history than said figures probably knew about themselves. She’s the Quiz Manager for the RunPee.com blog, and Assistant Facebook Manager for our social media efforts. If you’ve interacted with someone on our Facebook page, you’ve most likely been given a virtual hug by RunPee Mom.
