The Emeryville Experiments online movie review - Soooo F*****NG Tired of FAKE REVIEWS
So when did fake reviews become a 'thing'?
In the last two weeks we have seen films that had NO business being in theaters because we simply looked at the score. Trust me when I tell you that you can't do this anymore. READ the reviews, and you will easily see which are FAKE.
First of all, any film that you haven't heard of previously with a 9 or 10 star rating from anyone should put you on-guard. (That's not to say that a 9 or 10-star rating alone is a clear indication of funny business). Secondly, if reviewers start extolling the virtues of those involved in the film, by name (i.e., director Miles Doleac is fantastic and has brought his great vision to the screen!) it might be a sign the the reviewer is a shill. Third, the old closing of: "Watch it!", "Enjoy it!", "Get it on Amazon" (or insert other such place here) should immediately raise a red flag, "Don't wait, you need to see it now", "Don't listen to others, listen to ME (or variations), "Don't miss this film!" and WATCH THIS!" are always dead giveaways. (Several 9 and 10- star reviews here have all of these).
Unfortunately, we live in an age where people seem to have a very low moral code and don't hesitate to lie at the drop of a hat and where anything (including integrity) can be purchased for pennies for the sake of the mighty dollar.
This movie is CRAP. I can't tell you if the ending redeemed it, because I could not get that far, but what I saw of it is enough to base my opinion on.
If you want to take my word for it, you're welcome. If not, and you choose to watch it, don't say you weren't forewarned.
