Bodies Bodies Bodies

Bodies, Bodies, Bodies didn’t live up to the height that I wanted it to be! When I first saw the trailer for the movie, I was actually down to seeing it kind of first thing because I felt like it was a movie that I would enjoy because of the amount of fun the trailer depicted it. I was waiting for the rental price to go down a bit, but in the end I was like, “Screw it, I might as well rent it for that price.” And it was not worth my money!

This movie follows a group of college-aged friends that we are supposed to believe at first glance are actually close friends. They all get together to host a party during a hurricane. They start dancing, drinking, and just having fun when then they transition to play a game called Bodies Bodies Bodies (it’s just like playing Amoung Us in real life). When they’re on their second round of the game, is when they actually found a dead body. Things slowly turn a more darker tone, and people start yelling at each other asking who’s it while more bodies are found dead.

This movie feels like on frustrating movie to watch because it’s a movie you’ve already seen in some sort of way and form in the Movie Industry. And sadly for this film, this film lacks in making anything orginal or new to it except having college-aged teens screaming at each other for like an hour. And on top of that, this movie struggles to even make the characters likeable to enjoy them on screen. They struggle to have any chemistry together, and they just want me to feel like everyone of should be dead just to end their little, nosense life to an end. Their characters that struggle to actually make you enjoy the movie.

As the movie proggresses forward, we realise each one of them has some secret hiden for certain reasons. And sooner or later they get exploited to add more drama to the already filled drama pit. I feel like the most annoying most part of this movie was how the group of so called “friends” just kept on screaming (except Bee) and they just wouldn’t shut the heck up and start actually finding out the killer. It just seemed like every scene someone was running off in the dark by their selves, or someone was screaming crap. It was just a hard, frustrating movie to watch with a plot like this did not done justice or done something new.

I feel like the directors/writers of this movie added the romace moments in the movie to not only light up some of the tone, but to make it a bit sentimental toward the main characters, Bee and Sophie. But I’m sorry to say, that crap didn’t work for me. The whole movie on the romance side sucked, and it absouletly slowed the movie down. It tries to hard on both end . . . trying to play some neat, thriller mystery movie while also trying to weave a good romance side to it. And it doesn’t work at the least. It struggles to even make the movie thrilling or even scary enough. For me, it was a blind oppurtunity to have fun with it and to go darker, and violenter with it.

This movie failed to entertain me, and on top of it all, I was bored for most of the film. The soundtrack was neat, but didn’t work for the movie . . . it tried to have errier soundtrack in a film that felt too light-hearted and not dark enough. It felt like it strived to have this dark tone, but for me it failed due to the lack of of the whole thing. It succeeds in getting me annoyed at the film. It was a movie that bored me, and I wasn’t happy on the result and the ending for the movie.

This movie tried too hard . . . it tried to hit like a fun, scary played out murder mytsery movie but it turned out to be a weak-sauce movie that needs a lot of flavoring and reshreshing taste to it. It felt stale, weak, and something that I would watch if I was drunk or needed something to get annoyed at. I mean, the actors/actresses of the film may had a blast filming it, but their blast of a time did not come out in a good way. It felt boring, lame, and it felt something that could suffocate my life if I saw it again!
