A movie with a heart: Literally, Right Before Aaron is one man’s sorry adventures in dealing with his ex-girlfriend’s prospective wedding – true, that sounds utterly obnoxious but what’s a man suffering from heartbreak to do. In the film, Aaron is Allison’s groom and Allison has invited her ex-boyfriend, Adam, who she dated right before Aaron, to her wedding. After that, Adam spends most of his time trying to work through his memories of the romantic past he had with Allison but it doesn’t ease Adam’s pain: no tennis-playing with Aaron, even though Adam is rubbish at the game and no drunk-dancing on the big day helps him in any way whatsoever. Sometimes, it’s hard to figure out where Adam is going with all of this because he definitely steers clear of breaking Aaron and Allison up – this makes the film an annoying one-person monologue, which just drags on for what seems like indefinitely, and makes you really root for the wedding to take off and for Adam to grow up just a little bit.
What exactly is a hot guy? In my book, a hot guy is a man who looks good, is well-groomed, has a great personality and has the ability to climb the professional ladder, all the way to the top. This year, many men in the world proved that being something like that might be a lot of hard work but it’s still perfectly possible to accomplish it and yet there are some heartthrobs who were simply planets apart with it. These heartthrobs are cardboard-cutouts because of those reasons exactly: they demonstrate that being good looking doesn’t come easy.
Shawn Mendes thinks working out is therapeutic but his crazy hair is probably what wins the game for the young Canadian music artist looks-wise – it perfectly compliments Shawn’s penchant to always sing his heart out with the greatest of pop songs.
Eddie Redmayne looks like a gentleman, at all times and does a really fabulous job of it. His gentlemanly outlook in hotness is something to thank his English roots for because it’s such a unique thing – like a really good unique thing.
