Dave Made a Maze

OK, I have absolutely no idea why I bought this bluray… I haven’t seen any other movie by the director or anything. But I see that I ripped this disk the same day I ripped movies by Jeff Baena, so perhaps he said that this was an amazing movie or something? (Those movies were disappointing, too.)

This is really, really bad. It’s like a metaphorical movie where they state all the metaphorical implications up front. But while high.

I’m so bored by this movie, and I’m only ten minutes in — I didn’t know that it was possible to be this bored.

I’m this bored.

Isn’t that that guy?

After a seemingly interminable 15 minutes which was Dave shouting at them not to enter the cardboard maze, they’ve finally entered the maze — this is where the movie should have started.

Spoilers: It’s bigger on the inside.

It’s still in-credibly tedious.

Actually, I’m not sure why I hate this so much. It’s an inoffensive little small budget whimsical horror/comedy movie… that I hate so much. Sooo much.




I don’t know if the same person conceived the visuals and wrote the text, but the former are wonderful while the latter is unbearable.

I really, really disliked this movie, and the dislike was immediate — I loathed this movie from the first scene on. That sounds totally irrational, right? And I can’t explain why I hate this so much. I mean, the performances were bad, and the dialogue was horrible, but it looked pretty OK, and that usually counts for something, right? But nope.

Perhaps it’s the forced whimsy of it all — it’s fake whimsy.

Dave Made a Maze. Bill Watterson. 2017.
