Well, This Sucks- An Honest Movie Review Of “The Whale”


After seeing all of the hype on Tiktok, Twitter and Letterbox about Darren Aronofsky’s newest movie release, I figured I’d take it upon myself to sit down and enjoy the film.

Well, what I was expecting to be an enthralling new drama was actually the biggest waste of time l’d ever experienced. 5 minutes in, the screen froze on a frame of the morbidly obese main character looking rather perturbed. Uncomfortable, I hit my TV a couple times before realizing THIS WAS THE MOVIE.

Yeah, it’s JUST THIS. This is the WHOLE movie. Just so I could impress all of my Letterbod followers with my intellectual, well-thought out reviews, I decided to tough it out- maybe there would be a really good ending to make up for the 112 minutes of JUST THIS GUY’S FACE.

Nope. That’s time I’ll never get back.

Thanks a lot Aronofsky.
