Alienate

I picked “Alienate” on Netflix because it looked like a (probably bad) post-apoc alien invasion movie.  I usually enjoy post-apoc even if it’s bad, so I figured we’d see what was up.

It was roughly an hour and ten minutes of melodrama involving completely unsympathetic characters, occasionally interrupted by brief bouts of vaguely interesting alien apocalypse.  It’s basically “What if the aliens invade and I never get to tell you how much I love you?  Except, while professing my love, I discover you cheated on me, and then I am conflicted about it and make it my priority while we sit in a car in the dark hoping aliens don’t find us.”  Except somehow not even that interesting.

I suppose everything you need to know is in the title, but they need to work on their genre marketing.  After the umpteenth terrible decision by a main character that most unfortunately was not being eaten by aliens at the moment, I turned it off.  No thanks.

I am not a professional, I don't get paid to review shit, I am just opinionated and I seem to have some sort of disorder that results in spewing my opinions onto the internet. I enjoy writing long-winded posts about things and sometimes I like to pretend people want to read them, so a blog seemed an appropriate place to stuff it. But mostly I just like writing about things.
