Fences (2016)

1/10
Fences was a terrible movie. People said it was slow and would build to an epic finale. For me, this movie started off bad and only got worse. It was long and painful to sit through because the more we learnt about Denzel Washington’s character, the more and more I hated him. There are really no words to describe how upset this movie made me feel, I hated his baseball references and the fact he had absolutely no class or enough brain cells to be a decent guy. I still can’t believe how disappointing this turned out to be.

  1. Gee guys, you might be selling this one way too short. In terms of acting, filming and universal narrative, this is one of the more outstanding films of 2016. Its an intimate and densely lyrical insight into the African-American experience and a powerhouse performance.

    • This film has been nominated for many awards across many shows, but there was something about I hated. I guess I didn’t see it the way everyone does and even though I gave it such a low rating, there are hundreds of people who give it a 10/10. I can’t explain what didn’t click, considering I love both Denzel and Viola, just something wasn’t there to get me engaged or keep me interested.
