2 Rabbits Review

Wascally Wabbits

There is zero doubt that writer/director Alfonso Poyart is an enormous fan of Quentin Tarantino. It's pretty much a given from the very first moments of "2 Rabbits". It's a chaotic view of criminals in a constant state of clashing with each other. The problem is that it becomes increasingly difficult to discern who is fighting who and what exactly they are trying to do.

There are a lot characters that appear, disappear and reappear, but it's Edgar (Fernando Alves Pinto) who keeps reappearing most often. When we first see him, he is a lazy guy who spends his time watching porn and playing video games, but he is also a techie. And he has a plan. It's one that is difficult to follow, but we do know that he is seeking revenge and he returns to São Paulo to exact that revenge.
The path that takes us through Edgar's plan includes people in all walks of life, including a crazed gangster, a corrupt politician, a pizza delivery guy, a defense attorney and lots of low-level dirtbags. One of the problems is that we never get much of a feel for any of them. They fly in and out of the story incredibly quickly. Add in Poyart's insane amount of quick cuts and your head will no doubt spin like mine did. It's akin to watching a movie at slight fast-forward.

Forget about trying to follow the plot here. You would need a couple of days to watch it over and over, while stopping periodically to take notes. This doesn't mean it's not a fun watch, but don't expect to extract too much information from it. It's more fun ride than coherent story.

The toughest thing about watching "2 Rabbits" is that, because of its frenetic pace, the subtitles fly by so quickly that it is near impossible to read them. Also, the subtitles that go by slower are also tough to read because the letters on the screen often blend into the picture, making them unintelligible. If you are fluent in Portuguese, it might make this a more pleasant watch. If you aren't, be content to watch lots of action that you may or may not understand.

Vorwerk Kobold VR300 Review

At nearly £1000, does the VR300 offer enough to justify the purchase when you can pick up a robot vac for £100s less? Find out in our Vorwerk Kobold VR300 review
Should I Buy The Vorwerk Kobold VR300?
It’s expensive, but the Kobold VR300 provides an impressive vacuuming experience that we think could rival that of a conventional vacuum cleaner, but it’s not as smart as some rivals – yet. The low-profile design, upgraded SLAM technology and D-shape design allow the VR300 to safely navigate around obstacles and reach every last nook and cranny.

Asus ZenBook 14 (UX433) Review

Asus has revamped the ZenBook line with a whole new design, including a lighter build, redesigned hinge, and a light-up numpad built right into the touch pad
Should I Buy The Asus ZenBook 14 UX433?
The ZenBook 14 is a very promising shakeup to the Asus laptop line. It’s smaller, lighter, and better looking than any of the previous models, without having to sacrifice either ports or powers. There aren't many laptops around that can offer you a 14in display in a body this compact while still giving you USB-A and HDMI ports, not to mention a Core i7 processor.
Unless you're an Excel addict you can probably safely ignore the glowing numpad - it's a fun gimmick, but most of us will probably forget it's even there, and without tactile feedback it's hardly a proper replacement for the keys. Still, this is a strong enough laptop elsewhere that it doesn't need that gimmick to get by, and there's plenty to recommend it otherwise.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Movie Review

Nth Time's a Charm

If you groaned at the thought of another "Spider-Man" movie, fear not because you weren't alone. How many times can one character be rebooted or reimagined before it becomes insufferable? Apparently we aren't there yet, because "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse" is a welcome breath of fresh air.
Everyone's history with the movies about our favorite neighborhood webslinger differs. Sam Raimi's trilogy has its diehard fans (despite only producing one truly great film) and the Andrew Garfield-led "The Amazing Spider-Man" movies were cut short when they didn't meet expectations (the first one is good!). Last year, Jon Watts' "Spider-Man: Homecoming" found Tom Holland in the title role, providing a fun, well-rounded look at the character, which had been missing for a while.
