Love, Simon (2018)

A movie about gay men written by a straight woman for a straight general audience. Its pandering to the teenage demographic is laughably out of date (impact font memes!? The use of the word ‘epic’) and it was insanely clear that the writers weren’t LGBT+. This movie severely disappointed me. The plot revolves around blackmail, and has the horrible cliches that go with it. As soon as I noticed a pattern I knew exactly where this movie was going. The script was definately the weakest part. The soundtrack was fine and the acting was alright.

After reading some online reviews, I feel like an asshole for not liking it.
