That One Movie I Really Didn’t Like That You Probably Love

Not a fan.

This isn’t as funny as Honest Trailers usually is, because I really didn’t like the movie. It was visually striking, but the story never clicked. Now I know why: all the characters were assholes.

It was dark, bohemian, and narcissistic, and millennials don’t need any more examples of that to model their lives after.

Yeah, the fight scenes were cool, and the special effects were incredible, but the characters and situations ruined the rest of the film for me.
