All in all, The Perfect Date was not a groundbreaking addition to the rom com genre but it managed to deliver on a light and entertaining movie that inspired the happy feels. It knows its place in the general scheme of things and was content to serve its purpose. It had relateable characters, imperfect ones and ones that are still finding their way. At the end of the day, aren’t we all just looking for purpose like Brooks was?
All in all, I liked the single minded focus that You used in telling Joe and Beck’s story. It was an effective wake up call for social media enthusiasts about the dangers of oversharing. In the same vein, the series perfectly illustrated the term wolf in sheep’s clothing, which Joe basically was. He was a tormented soul looking for love but he was weird and twisted and he was willing to blur the lines between right and wrong to justify the evil things he has done. What happened to Beck can just as easily happen to anyone in this day and age where personal info is readily available. I could not wait for season 2, honestly.

Pain deserves to be felt. A statement that is totally applicable to The Fault in Our Stars but it was a pain that I was glad to endure for its 126-minute run. Its one thing to subject yourself to a movie with one sick person in it, but its pretty much torture to sign up for a film with two […]
