Movies: A Review

“Await Further Instructions” starts out with promise, tension, and intrigue. However, much like all of my past relationships which have begun the same way, this movie quickly turns into an unbearable and disappointing shit show. The plot is fairly simple: a family with oodles of hostility toward each other are inexplicably trapped in their house on Christmas Day. They quickly find that a series of instructions are being broadcast via their tv set. For reasons I can only attribute to clumsy commentary on society’s obsession with authority, the family follows these increasingly bizarre instructions. I mean, they throw out all their food because the TV said so. They also scrub themselves down with bleach and inject an unknown substance into their bodies. Clearly, they’ve much better at following directions than critical thinking. Aside from authority/government, the movie also touches on themes of the evil patriarchy and the ignorance of racism. Unfortunately, any depth of meaning is lost in the overt and bungling way these themes are presented to the audience. The characters are stereotypical and shallow, lacking any noticeable growth as the movie progresses. Everyone just acts ridiculously, in my opinion. Still, it’s not entirely awful until the ending. There’s a fair bit of drama, mystery, and curiosity that gets you through most of the movie but, holy hell, the ending is just a cartoonish mess. What’s with the villainous creature, anyway? Is it a sentient wiry trash monster, or is it some ropey-looking parasite? Who knows? At any rate, the thing demands to be worshipped. I guess, in a way, you can pretend the movie is about how society replaced worshipping religion with worshipping technology? I dunno, I’m reaching for substance, here. There were some attempts at creepy toward the end, probably a last-ditch effort to make the movie worth watching. Unfortunately, it came off as cheap and meaningless...again, a lot like all my past relationships.   #donotrecommend     #netflix     #trash     #monster     #scifi     #mystery     #badmoviemonday     #filmcritic     #instareview     #christmas     #authority     #patriarchy     #religion     #science     #technology     #family     #racists     #horror     #movie     #moviereview

When you allow other weak minded individuals to influence the way you view life you’ve already lost. When you give negative people and thoughts the time and day you have no ambition to do any great things in life. It’s that simple. If you had found your purpose to work hard there would be no reason to allow yourself to listen to people like that. The more you begin to think the way the average do you will never unlock the true potential you have within yourself. Average effort leads to average results. We as human beings living in America have everything we need to succeed you just have to believe in yourself and keep filling yourself with positivity. . . . . balletcrazie lifeoftheballerina dancing bella ballerina balletphotography sdmodel sandiego california dancer dancing photography color delmar pointe russianpointebrand rpdancer dancing dance balletto enpointe dancers art photographer independentartist ichoosehappiness treateachotherwithlove happy
