Wrong Movie Review


Quentin Dupieux's "Wrong" is unlike anything you will ever see. I can pretty much guarantee that. Whether that will turn out to be a good or bad thing for you is a tossup, but I am willing to go out on a limb and predict that it will not be something you will look back upon lovingly. Presumably Dupieux is shooting for surrealism with this incredibly offbeat piece. It's certainly the only explanation I can come up with. Considering his previous film, "Rubber", a tale of a psychopathic car tire, maybe he is headed more towards realism. You might think so, but you would be wrong.


Dolph Springer (Jack Plotnick) is a nebbishier version of David Arquette in appearance. In the first scene we see his alarm clock go to 7:60 instead of 8:00. At first you wonder what the point of that is. Dolph climbs out of bed and can't find his dog. He wanders outside in his bathrobe and sees one of his neighbors. The neighbor is a gentleman who ventures between coherent and incoherent. Dolph is only mildly put off by this conversation. Soon Dolph is on his way to work and when he opens the door to his office we get the message as to what we are in for. Seven or so workers are already at their desks, typing away at their computers. What is a bit unusual is that it is pouring rain inside the office and no one notices, cares, or finds it unusual. It is the norm there. Dolph has no reaction to it, either.

I could go on with plot points but they would not help you understand the plot or anything else. There is a story, albeit nonsensical, but Dupieux isn't interested in constructing logical situations or mainstream arcs that we are accustomed to. He is interested in making us feel disconnected to what we are watching and focusing more on which way he might be able to turn us. While I can't say it was engrossing, I wasn't bored. However, not being bored is the highest praise I can give to "Wrong". Nothing is much right here, but it's not entirely wrong, although I'm sure many of you will have trouble making it through to the end.

Synology Mesh Router MR2200ac Review

You probably know Synology for making NAS drives but the firm has also turned its hand to mesh networks. Here we review the MR2200ac.
Should I Buy The Synology Mesh Router MR2200ac?
Synology could do a little more to explain the many features of the MR2200ac for first-time users, but the strong performance of this mesh system, and the fine-control provided by its web browser interface make it a good option for business users or home users who have a little more experience of networking technology.

Huawei P Smart 2019 Review

Huawei has updated its budget Android phone for 2019. It’s faster and better than before, but should you buy it? Read our review to find out.
Should I Buy The Huawei P Smart 2019?
The P Smart 2019 is a great upgrade from the 2018 model with a bigger screen and better performance. However, as with the original P Smart, Honor's version is better value.

Oppo RX17 Pro Review

Though similar to the OnePlus 6T the Oppo RX17 Pro is very different thanks to the software. Here’s our full review
Should I Buy The Oppo RX17 Pro?
The RX17 Pro is a great looking phone with good performance and a lush display. But with a Snapdragon 710 rather than the better 845 it’s just impossible not to compare it to the OnePlus 6T which looks the same, has better software for the western market and, importantly, costs less.
If you like the look of Oppo’s interface though then there’s a lot to like. The two colour options are premium as is the build quality and the cameras are above average if not great.

Moto Z4 Play Release Date, Price & Spec Rumours

We investigate rumours surrounding the Moto Z4 Play, which could be announced in June 2019 with an in-display fingerprint sensor.
Announced in June 2018, the Moto Z3 Play was never joined in the UK by the standard Moto Z3. It's possible that for the Z4 series we will again see only the Play model go on sale here, with the Moto Z4 Play expected to be announced in the UK in mid-2019.

Nokia 9 Release Date, Price & Spec Rumours

We've waited two years for the Nokia 9, and at the end of this month the company could finally put us out of our misery. Here's what we know about the Nokia 9 PureView, which could feature a penta-lens rear camera.
Nokia made its comeback to the Android market in January 2017 with the Nokia 6, and we've been waiting two years now for its long-rumoured flagship Nokia 9 to arrive. At MWC 2018 we thought that time was here, and then we got the the Nokia 8 Sirocco. But now the wait could really, really be over, as the Nokia 9 is tipped to land before the end of January 2019.
