Movie Review: The Visit
Liam and Brian disagree about the merits of the new M Night Shamalan movie – The Visit. Brian’s take is that he enjoyed the movie, the direction, the performances, and even the twist.
Liam disagrees about the plot twist and thinks that it was terrible and he saw it right from the trailer.
They also discussed “The Creep” by Mark Duplass, as well as “Safety Not Guaranteed” and “The One I Love” which are all available on Netflix.
Netflix is not a sponsor of Sequential Fiction, but both Brian and Liam highly recommend Netflix as an amazing deal with some awesome movies and TV series throughout.
