Did I forget to mention this? That I also write One Minute Movie Reviews?
Hunting Buddies – Brandon Van Vliet, Pete Duffy, by John Karsko
You think a cover doesn’t sell movies or books? You are a fool!!!! The only reason I picked this to watch on Hulu is because of the great red, black and white photo for the movie – and there were many other great shots and scenes in it, too.
Otherwise…I hate hunters. I despise them. I lose friends on Facebook when I say I hate states that allow hunting. I loathe the USDA and Fish & Game. I can give you dozens of essays and reasons why hunting is the work of the devil – and worse.
So the only reason I picked this movie to watch in Hulu was 1) the cover and 2) the hope that all the hunters would die at the hand of a serial killer or monster, and then I would feel very satisfied.
As I’m finding out, Hulu lies about categories a lot. This wasn’t Horror, but more a drama-mystery of 4 friends, well-acted, interesting characters, nice scenery. Killings, but not supernatural. A little spooky. I really liked the bro factor with the guys.
But this is a very short movie, only 79 minutes (great for Hulu! – which also had very few ads, maybe because it’s new in the queue) and nothing happened in the story for a long time. Then a bunch of things happened, but I didn’t really understand all of it, because it was at night and the scenes were so dark. I think the production company just ran out of money.
Oh well, I still liked it. And guess what: we didn’t see: the hunters killing any animals, and only one dead animal was shown..
And as I had hoped, I was satisfied.
