Spree : My review

My review

I just finished watching Spree (2020). Directed by Eugene Kotlyarenko, the film stars Joe Keery as a rideshare driver obsessed with getting followers on social media. He decides the best way to get the attention he craves is to kill his passengers and live stream it. The film is a dark comedy and is smart, funny, and thrilling. Keery is fantastic here and the movie is fast paced, wild, and deliciously entertaining. Spree has some interesting things to say about social media and the potential dangers it can pose, but Kotlyarenko does a good job allowing the film to be fun, without getting too heavy handed. Spree is a satisfying satire that delivers a fun thrill ride for its passengers. My rating: 9 stars out of 10.

Re: My review

Saw it around the same time you did, although I didn't love it quite as much. Probably around a 6 or 6.5/10 for me. I did like its commentary on so-called YouTube "influencers", a phenomenon I'd like to punch in the balls. It was nice seeing David Arquette briefly. He was just mentioned here about a day before this film appeared. smile.gif

Here's the trailer in case anyone wants to click on it.

Owww, the toxicity on filmboards. I'm not even going to try reasoning with a person like you even though pointing out your hypocrisy is required. I'm sure Orson's crazy ass will storm into this thread like an idiot trying to defend your sensibilities. Like you had any sensibilities in the first place.

Re: My review

well how else are we supposed to respond to a fake toxic thing that is literally and also souly and emotionally killing our kids?

social media which is an offshoot of cell phones is the end of civilization.

the most epitome sign of this is the first customer scene in his movie which show a woman talking on her phone getting into a car while the driver is on his webcam. this is the most perfect way of illustrating the decay and destruction of america and the world.

2 ways of people not talking to each other and having meaningful and necessary and needed interaction and instead using technology to fill this human interaction void.

if we continue to rely on social media and our phones to live everyday at every moment we will end up not being human anymore and become a machine of technology. we will let technology consume us.

these are the biggest epidemic we have in the world now: cell phones and social media. i hope some day really soon social media and cell phones will end.

by the way i couldn't stand watching this stupid movie with him constantly looking at the camera.

Re: My review

That just sounds more than my senses can handle. Why would you watch that, and give it such a high rating?

Re: My review

Since you read the review, the Op did you a favor. Now you know that it's something you wouldn't enjoy.
That doesn't mean that the OP has to feel the same way.
Why give it such a high rating? Why not, if you like something?

You asked a pretty question; I've given you the ugly answer.

Re: My review

I watched it because it sounded interesting and I rated it high because I really liked it and thought it was well made. It’s not hard to watch so I think most people’s senses could handle it.

Re: My review

Have you noticed the subject manner for recent film or tv series are extremely violent and and focus on mental illness too much? I'm wondering if the popularity of Hannibal Lecter started this new even more disturbing plots and characters we've seen recently as in the last 10 years. What do you think? There are so many examples that I couldn't choose one. It's just a progressively more serious and realistic trend.

Re: My review

I don’t think it is just a recent trend. There have been violent movies and movies about mental illness and people going crazy for several years now.

Re: My review

Hmmm. A dismal 5.7 on IMDb. Remind me never to share a water bottle.

Re: My review

Good review, so kudos for that, but I hated the damn movie.
