Do you remember 1987's No Way Out starring Kevin Costner and Sean Young? And how "toxic" people described Young? You know, that she was difficult on set and so forth?
More recently, Denise Richards has been similarly pilloried and seemingly discarded to the straight-to-video bin.
Beyond Rachel Zegler's public comments following West Side Story, her not being invited to that year's Oscars (until she pouted enough to get invited to give an award away), and her comments about her Snow White remake (the one Disney shelved for 18 months), I know nothing.
I do know this, however: This latest installment in The Hunger Games canon is painful to watch.
For no logical reason other than, apparently, Rachel likes to sing and strum guitar, this film is chock-full of random singing and strumming!
It's just really weird and off-putting.
There's no reason, plot-wise, for any of that to occur, so it feels almost like an appeasement strategy or something on behalf of the studio, producers, director, or writers to try and spotlight Rachel's talent, but instead, it mostly feels awkward and odd.
Real Fonzie-jumping-the-shark level madness up here.
Like I said, I know nothing, nor can I explain it, but, alas, that's how I felt watching the film, so there you have it.
If you love mixing in musical numbers with your post-apocalyptic dystopian thrillers, then have at it.
If, however, you do not, then I'd pronounce it a hard pass for ya.
