Barely Lethal Review

Barely Lethal, starring Hailee Steinfeld as a secret ops teen-sassin who longs for a normal high school girl’s life, felt like it had the potential to be something great, but – as demonstrated within the film’s own title – it never managed to rise above its own lazy, mediocre jokes.

From Fanboys’ Kyle Newman, Barely Lethal boasts some impressive names (Samuel L. Jackson, Jessica Alba, Game of Thrones’ Sophie Turner) but is cursed with a confused tone, painfully predictable twists, and – wouldn’t you know it? – impressive names who aren’t really all that good at comedy.

Steinfeld plays “Agent 83” of the Prescott School, an off-the-books assassin training center for orphan girls. Think the “Black Widow” program but played for laughs. And picture Sam Jackson, who plays Instructor Hardman, scolding a six-year-old for accidentally setting off a bomb she was meant to defuse. Well, during a mission to apprehend the gorgeous and lethal Victoria Knox (Alba), 83 falls behind and uses Hardman’s “I’m not in the rescue business” M.O. as a chance to fake her own death and attend high school as an exchange student named Megan.

Review: HTC One M9 from an iPhone user’s perspective

HTC One M9 Review 01

The HTC One M9 is the latest flagship phone from HTC and it doesn’t divert from what has made the HTC One line stand out among other releases from Android OEMs. If the all metal Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge didn’t exist, then the HTC One would stand head and shoulders above the rest of the Android competition from a design standpoint. But even with Samsung’s recent change in design taste, the HTC One M9 is one of the, if not the best looking Android smartphone that money can buy.

As a full time iPhone user, I feel like I have a unique perspective to lend to those of you who may be interested in the M9, or those of you who just want to know how other flagship phones are doing outside of the Apple ecosystem. In this post, I’ll discuss 5 features that I love about the HTC One M9, and 5 features that aren’t so hot. Be sure to tune in to our full video review as well…. Read the rest of this post here
