    ★★★★

    Straightforward procedural, but effective. Definitely DRAMATIZED, but you need a good story structure and conveniently timed reveals sometimes when watching a massive child abuse cover up being exposed.

    Someone to the director right before shooting: "anussayscut!"

    Went from a late night hangout flick to something entirely different quite quickly. Captured the chaotic energy of a drunken group after the bars early in the morning quite well, made me feel a little nostalgic.

    Victoria couldn't speak German, but there were German subtitles for when the Germans spoke to each other, i wonder what the experience would be like not having that context and being fully in the dark like Victoria... Maybe a little too meandering and confusing to work as a film.

    Having seen devs before this, it kinda confirms my thought that the show would have been better cut down into a longer movie. This was great. Keeps you guessing until the end. Everyone/thing (?) is creepy as hell. Apparently it was filmed in a Scandinavian hotel built on a river. Good for you, Norway.

    ★★★½

    Beaver island brewing in St cloud Minnesota now holds the title of the worst beer I have ever tasted. Their mango cream ale. I know I should have not even touched such a can. Note to anyone making any beaver related content: do not partner with beaver island brewery for marketing or what have you.

    Palm springs might have gotten to the illustrious 4 star mark if this beer did not Sully the experience. Might not be fair, but objectivity does not actually exist.
