So this week me & Aaron went to the cinemas. The only film that stood out to us was Unfriended, so we decided to see that! Now I’m not gonna ruin it for everyone because I always see spoilers on stuff then regret reading it, so this is a spoiler free post!
The film is about a group of friends who are talking on Skype (the whole film is pretty much webcams and screen shots). There is an anonymous person on Skype with no picture/video. The group of friends go through their research to find out who this person is. When they do, they are shocked to find out that it is the profile of their dead friend who committed suicide due to bullying.
I think the film is quite realistic and I think the message they are trying to give is to stop online bullying, so I think the message is very strong and important, and it is good that they have done a film on this to show the affect bullying can have! I think everyone has been picked on or bullied once online and we all know how horrible and belittling it feels. Thats just me talking, but mine wasn’t half as severe as other people have it.
The film is pretty scary but I have to say, it’s not terrifying, it’s just the big bangs that come out of the speakers! I think it is also a very clever film with the effects it gives, I know there will be a lot of editing because trust me, I’ve never seen half that stuff happen on Facebook or Skype before.
In conclusion, I probably wouldn’t see the film at the cinemas again, because I’d want to watch it without covering my face, but I would definitely buy it and watch it at home without surround sound!
Thats all for this weeks film review guys. I’ll try make one for next week, if you have any film suggestions, please let me know!
Thank you for reading! xxx
