Men won't volunteer to help the Scouts for one depressing reason: they'll be labelled paedophiles submitted by YoungerX to MensRights

At this point its a plain lie to call it 'volunteering' - you pay a price of gambling your reputation, career, and even freedom on the chance an accusation, in return you get to be a unpaid babysitter and the stink eye.

Men are smart, the cost-benefit simply isn't worthwhile anymore.

Baby Driver submitted by xortuna to moviereview

I nearly avoided this in the entirety, being sceptical of the name and weak trailer. Edgar Wright directing steered me into seeing it anyway, hoping this film would somewhat match the successes of Shawn of the dead, and Hot Fuzz.

Very early on we get a long shot homage to Shawn of the dead's infamous cornetto scene, which was appreciated. Despite this and a few Easter eggs here and there, that was all the self referencing there was, and gave room for Baby driver stand as it's own film and create some new tropes.

Now set in america, the protagonist grew up in weird time period where IPods were given as Christmas gifts, alongside 80's music tech and stereo cassette tapes, I feel the director wanted to instil his childhood memories onto a millennial kid, which resulted in this weird mishmash of eras.

The music being one of the main plot devices, felt like it was riding guardians of the galaxy's waves a bit too much, with characters self referencing the music with 'hey check this cool song out' trope many times. The action scenes is where the music starts to complement the direction and cinematography very well. Both of which made it clear what was happening, with little use of shaky cam and cut away shots giving a very enjoyable viewing.

Most of the characters had depth and motivations other than 'steal shit', with the weakest character actually being the love interest - who felt like she was taken from the 60's (more era blending) and served as cardboard quote machine for variations of 'drive on the open road'

The plot served it's purpose being a heist film it did not stray from the typical heist script, this wasn't an issue due to the film being more of a character study of 'Baby' in the heist situations he was presented with.

Whilst it does not excel in any areas, it's still a solid film and worth a watch.

4/5
