Cubussoli Very very predictable, including the post credit scene !!!
Precisett This movie is magnificent!
Fairaher The film makes a home in your brain and the only cure is to see it again.
FirstWitch A movie that not only functions as a solid scarefest but a razor-sharp satire.
tabdancer Alex Truelove is the protagonist I feel like we all need to see. He's brilliant, he's awkward, he's dorky, and he's just as confused as the rest of us. His story truly touched my heart and we very relatable. I've gone through a few labels, and I'm not even sure if I will stick with the one I identify with now. Him exploring his sexuality was something I don't think I've really seen in a movie or tv show before. I've seen people know their label and just have not come out, but this is the first time I've seen a character learn, and in a very realistic way. It was hilarious. I will admit Alex's friends are idiots and were part of the reason I didn't give this a 10/10. I didn't like Dell that much. The frog thing was kind of stupid. I also didn't like the whole frat party. But this movie was still very funny and uplifting.Alex and Elliot are now in my top 5 OTPs. They had this instant connection that was very real. Even from the start, you could see Alex relax with Elliot. It was obvious that he was the one for him. Alex and Claire were cute, but you could tell something was missing (no it wasn't sex). But major props to the actors for pulling off this amazing intimacy without being dirty. Overall, Alex Strangelove is the movie teens who are struggling with thier identity should see. I could see myself in Alex, and I know others did as well. It was a little rocky at times, like with the frat party and Dell's pretty homophobic comments (I hated that scene so much). It is still the coming of age movie young people should watch, especially if they are struggling with their sexuality. 8/10
hannahchelgren First of all, it's pretty cool to see a lgbtq movie produced by such an influential, widely used platform. I think this is a good movie for teens questioning their sexuality, as it shows the complexities encountered when entering such territory. Sure, it could have gone deeper, but I see it as a coming out version of other traditional, popular high school romance movies. We need light-hearted, touching, funny, and sometimes awkward movies about queer teen love.
