Saturday Screen Time #13: Not what I was expecting

Happy Saturday, everyone! This was a slow movie week, since I was offered a Hulu trial. Instead I spent the week watching trash TV, which may or may not have consisted of The Bachelor and Survivor. I did get the chance to watch one anticipated film, but it didn't go as planned.  


The Killing of a Sacred Deer - I've been trying to watch a lot more independent films lately, although I still love my Marvel movies. The Killing of a Sacred Deer had been on my radar for awhile, so I finally snagged a copy when it became available on Netflix DVD. I'd heard great things, although I'd never seen anything by this director. I expected it to be weird and to have to think about it, but this was not at all what I expected. The characters all spoke in a weird monotone as if they were reading their lines from a teleprompter and the story itself was bizarre, but not in a good way. I don't mind having questions when a film ends, but this one offered no explanation at all. It seems like I'm definitely in the minority here, but this movie just really wasn't for me. (1/5 stars)

Have you seen either of these? What did you think?
What movies have you watched lately?
