The Movie Checklist - Should You Watch This? (Spoilers)

Did you ever wonder if you could trust those rating sites on their reviews of movies? I mean all those strangers can’t know if you’re gonna like a movie! Leave it to just one stranger... me. I’m gonna tell you whether or not you should watch movies (there will be spoilers). Let’s go.

Movie name: Don’t Breathe

Year: 2016

Trailer: 

Genre: Horror

Main character(s): Jerk Teen, “Nice Guy” Teen, Big Dreams Teen, and Old Man

Notable cast members: Jerk Teen was the hot slacker guy from It Follows, “Nice Guy” is the main boy in Netflix series 13 Reasons Why, Big Dreams starred in the Evil Dead remake, and Old Man was the crazy general from Avatar. 

One line-ish plot summary: Teens try to steal from blind old man and find that the man is more than he seems.

Best character: Uhhhhhmmmm… the lady bug?

Worst character: All bad.

Best moment: The opening scene was cool. Great eye catcher.

Worst moment: There’s no character to root for. They’re all jerks and I’m not sure the filmmakers intended for them to come off that way.

Plot twists?: The old man is keeping the woman who accidentally killed his daughter in the basement and has artificially inseminated her so he can have another child. So, that was fun.

How was the ending?: The big dreams teen gets away and presumably takes her sister to California like she wanted to. Also it turns out old man didn’t die so I think they’re planning on a sequel.

Sequels/prequels?: We’ll just have to wait and see.

Is this a good movie?: It’s ok. There was some grossness and the characters make poor decision after poor decision, but there was some beautiful cinematography. 

Why did Kayla watch this movie?: There was a lot of hype around it. 

Does Kayla like this movie?: No.

Should you watch this movie?: Sure.

Why you should watch this movie: Listen, if you like these types of “Teens Doing Bad Things For Reasons They Think Are Justified” movies, sure.

Where you can watch this movie (as of this posting): Try your favorite streaming service.

Extra advice: Just close your eyes when the guy goes into the fridge to get his baby batter. ugh.
