This movie has a lot to say about our modern era, and it is done falsely. Those years were renown as the most profound and interesting one could hope to conceive. The modern era, as depicted in the movie, is full of scorn and regret. Terrible movies like “A Botched Internet” have not idea of the damaging effect they have on the world. This movie was a mistake. This movie makes the 21st century look conceded and disconnected form everyone else. It’s just meaningless misinterpretation of the greatness and expansion of technology in the 21st century. The people who made this movie are probably hipsters who think the world is going to hell because somebody checks Facebook more than once. Well I have something to say, we are more than just Facebook and twitter fiends looking to impress others. Let us not believe otherwise. I do agree that those who get surgery or frequently check social media might needs some help, but those are the exception not the rule. So how about the creators of “A Botched Internet”, get out and find themselves more respect for the 21st century!
It says something when a movie that is supposed to reflect the real world uses genres like horror and drama. Both of these have been used to show unspeakable acts in a fictional setting on other works, but this time they are meant to reflect us. The sad part is that it works, when dealing with themes of addiction or social exception the darker tone feels more real. It makes you think about how horrible these problems are in the real world. Overall, this is a remarkable film that finds a balancing point between horror and drama attempting to show you the real world in the darkest way possible.
A picture to be remembered throughout the ages; this movie stands among the very few to say that our world is going downhill through its production of modern technology. It deals with how the progression of social media and medical surgery have lead to a new world of dangers in self hate and addiction. This movie is not afraid to look you in the eye and say you are harming yourself. If you have ever wanted to see a film made for this age, see this one. I am sure this film will be remembered as a historic reference to our current society.
As someone who suffered from addiction I can vouch that its portrayal is absolutely accurate. You can see his joy towards his phone and the separation from the real world it causes. Think about it this way from beginning to end he never lets go of the phone, even after he is ridiculed by the people on social media he keeps checking back. To Carter (the main character) social media is a place of comfort, a place where he was never judged, until he he stopped fitting the average body image. If you want to begin to understand the complex issue of addiction this movie is a good place to start, it does a good job of showing how in the lifestyle of an addict the addiction takes control.
This really was not up to the standards of an actual horror movie, while having all the classic gore it lacks much of the villainy or sadistic behavior found in most modern day horror. To me personally I feel the entire point of the gore is to showcase a negative feeling towards gun users. Out of everyone in movie the only ones to ever attack the main character personally is the rowdy gun toting citizens, they are also the only ones to attack him physically. I find this portrayal inaccurate and the writers are obviously trying to push a hate message against such citizens. Do not watch this film it preaches an over exaggerated portrayal of gun owning citizens
Like a sun rise this film comes over the horizon rising above any other film I have seen in my life, showcasing its views on modern family values. You can tell from the start that this movie is showing what today’s families are made of: people being too attached to their technology to talk to one another. The husband in this case is shown as too addicted to have even the most minuscule care for the rest of his family. This is an obvious critique on family members becoming too connected to the internet hurting their actual relationships with one another. Eventually you even see the main character’s family beginning to disown him once he becomes hideous, this is because they had barely any initial connection. A true loving family would have helped him in his time of need. It seem to progress from there he starts killing people, from there it is a complete disconnect. This movie obviously is a critique on the idea of family connections being genuine instead of limited interact with one another.
This movie brings some chills and some thrills, the only thing I don’t like about it is that it involves a stupid idea called the “Facebook Facelift”, where people who are self conscious about themselves go through extensive means to make themselves look better. I can't say I agree with this movies' anti surgery policy. I comes off way too force and even requires the person in the movie to be horrible to make the act seem worst. People should have the right to enhance any part of themselves that they want we have the technology what is the harm? I highly doubt someone will get a botched surgery as bad as the main character. I don’t think the movie is bad, it’s a good movie, but its forced negativity towards plastic surgery is annoying.
Great movie! I’d give 5 stars if I were a critic, I love all the amazing connections to our era and the modern era. It really answers the question of “What defines our era?” It does this by talking about technology, because our era is extremely centered around technology, so I’m glad it features those aspects. It definitely tackles and grapples with the theme of social acceptance and what standards of beauty fit our societal standards; infusing concepts such as surgery, what people do to look better if they don’t look good enough to please others. That is a prime thing that Carter does in order to try to change himself in order to make himself look better and I love how it talks about his internal struggle to look better and fit society’s standard of “accepted beauty”.
At the core this movie built a world of circumstances. The story, in short, is about a man who acts conceited and eventually becomes a monster; in reality Karma like this is rare. It silly to think that a man who has a terrible personality will eventually looks as bad as they act, but somehow it happens in this movie. Another instance of this is after all the murdering, the main character kills himself; it all works out in the end as far as the audience can tell. The writers are trying to send a message of how it will all sort itself out in the end, but anyone who lives in the real world can tell that this is not true. In reality bad things happen randomly to anyone, the same with good things. Overall, the problems were fixed too cleanly through circumstance, but still a good movie.
This movie is great, one of the reasons I like it because it is very ironic and very funny when you pair it with what a person in this day and age would expect and interpret. Usually above all, it’s women who go through all these excessive means in order to make themselves look better if they don’t look fitting to what a person would call “good looking”. And with the trend “the Facebook facelift” it makes exact sense that a person, specifically a women by societal standards would weigh the necessity of completely changing their appearance to look good on a social network website. It’s ironic because a man is doing these things and he’s technically a women in this case, tending to be pretty self conscious of his appearances. And I quote, “by society, he doesn’t meet expectations as to how a man should be”. This says a lot about society, in our modern era and the large amount of sexism and gender construction that exist in it.
