Episode 69 – Movie Review: Fallen

HOLY SHIT IT EXISTS! After two years on the shelf, Fallen – the film adaptation of the worst of the post-Twilight paranormal romance novels – has finally been released for our viewing pleasure(???), and boy is it utterly baffling. You have to work hard to make a worse version of the story than the source material, but somehow they accomplished it. Join us as we try to make sense of this collection of scenes played in sequence that can’t really be called a “movie”.

Embed of the trailer below! For best podcast experience you should probably watch it first, because it’s literally EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENS IN THE FILM CUT DOWN TO ~3 MINUTES.

    Ah, you guys finally got to see it! It was released several months ago (or is it a year?) in my country (Indonesia), with my friends and it was soooo damn boring and looks so cheap. I was literally falling asleep. Granted, YA Paranormal Romance genre is not my cup of tea to begin with, but my friend, who is a fan, found this movie boring. Reminded me of first three movies of Twilight series.

    I think with the hard flops of Fifth Wave, and final film of the Divergent series (I’m still waiting for the Ascendant TV movies dammit!), the YA movie genre is dying. I don’t know what to think about that. There are a lot of YA books that deserve much bigger audience, but they picked more bad series/ adapted them unsuccessfully than getting it right. And the wide assumptions of the younger generation doesn’t care about YA genre anymore (especially Paranormal Romance) just discourage studios to adapting YA books. On the other hand, the less likely Hollywood adapting Hush Hush or Carter Aimee’s Goddess series the better.
