    Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen a mainstream studio release as incoherently put together and amateur-looking as this one.

    Here’s the thing: at this point, we all know the tropes, twists, turns, and turmoils of a standard queer love story. So, in order for your movie to stand out from the rest, it needs to at least have characters that are interesting enough for us to care about their by-the-numbers romance.

    And that’s why I loved Esteros: sure, we’ve seen this exact same movie a thousand times before, but Jero and Matías intrigued me, I wanted to spend time with…
