Another time twist thing

Let's say you could live your life over again, would you change anything knowing the outcome is going to be a disaster? You would, but who would watch the movie?

This movie plays on a theme used in "Twilight Zone" episodes and various movies since the 1950's: Where the person sees themselves and integrates their present action to duplicate what has happened in the past. While it was done well in this movie, it didn't stand out as compared to others.

Did anyone else notice that Melissa George got augmentations after the movie to pose for the cover? The movie drops the F-bomb a few times, but is not bogged down with swearing. It has killing and blood, but spares us gore.

Incredibly complex and mind-bending experience that's hugely misunderstood

I knew nothing about this movie and went into it blind (which I would recommend everyone to do), and boy, oh boy, did this movie take me on a wild ride.

Melissa George is an actress I've always been fond of within the horror genre, so having her play the lead, Jess, immediately meant I was invested from the beginning. Melissa's performance is incredible and although there are a group of secondary characters, she really holds her own in this movie. The supporting cast are adequate but their limited screen-time means I'm unable to formulate any strong opinions on them.

What makes this movie so amazing is that it goes in a completely different direction than anyone could predict. What you expect to be a typical slasher movie turns out to be so much more and the events that unfolded beyond the first 20 minutes of the movie completely blew my mind.

I was glued to my screen from beginning to end (which is something that very few movies are able to accomplish for me) and after the end credits rolled I found my mind ticking over, dozens of theories and explanations whizzing through my brain as I attempted to fit the pieces of the puzzle together to form one coherent and interconnected story.

It saddens me to see this movie gets so many low ratings and bad reviews based on the fact that people misunderstood the plot or failed to recognise the significance of the symbolism. Admittedly, this isn't a movie that's very self-explanatory and it doesn't surprise me that a majority of people fail to understand the ending fully (and I'm speaking as one of those people), but in an odd way that's part of the charm of this movie. It's one that leaves the viewer with so many questions and makes you want to watch it again to see what you missed - which I did, multiple times! It's worth investing some time to research the meaning of it (Peng Yang on YouTube provides a very in-depth analysis) and definitely re-watch it. It's one of those rare movies whereby each time you watch it, it provides a different, interesting experience and you notice little details you didn't before.

When you fully understand the story of Triangle, you're able to appreciate how complex and intelligent it is. Every thread of the story weaves together to create the bigger image, but as the viewer you just have to find a way to weave those threads together yourself. It's a story about love, regret, grief, death, life, parenting, friendship, fear and so much more. If you keep an open mind when watching this movie and immerse yourself in the mysteries of it, you'll have a truly fantastic experience.

The only reason my rating just fell short of 10 stars is because the ending was unclear to me on my first watch and I believe a movie should be coherent, self-explanatory to an extent that I don't need to research it in order to fully understand it. Other than that this is one of the best movies I've watched in years and I would recommend it to anybody that's a fan of psychological horrors or thrillers.

Say Whaaat?

I kid with the title, this movie was boring and weirdly predictable.

I didn't really see the ending coming... however it was a let down. why would she be surprised at any thing going on, ever. She just did this.

Here is what was so odd, to me at least and ruined it.

There is a whole bunch of dead Shellys,(which was a cool idea), and a bunch of hand written notes, a bunch of lockets and a bunch of dead birds. Why is there not a bunch of dead Gregs in the theater, and a bunch of dead Vics? WHY does her memory suck sooooo much. I personally have never been time looped, so maybe I'm not able to speak on such things, but she clearly knows its boat time at the end.

At the end she kills her former self (I Guess) stuffs the body in a car, gets pissed at her kid shes so worried about, wrecks it, early jess is now out of the trunk, tommy is dying or dead (oh also then they tight pan the car wreck and some kid is sitting in in its wake with his drum?)(pretty normal right?) she sits and watches with that same stupid face she has for most of the first half of the film(sometimes she ninjas out, its weird) then a taxi shows up behind her, not much time is given to this important scene, the sky darkens up and mild ominous tones, the taxi guy is like that kid ain't gonna make it wanna ride someplace?....Its to the beginning of the movie. She don't run to the kid, she don't even look all that shocked, it's just like...Oh well, lets do the boat thing again. Oh yeah she doesn't pay the cabbie and he's like you promise you'll come back, even though she has no real destination other than THE HARBOR. So I think devil Cabbie just wants his $20.

Great idea for a movie, just really flawed. Really .
