Fresh is a prime example of why it's great to go into a movie knowing as little as possible
Last night I decided to watch Fresh, the new movie starring Sebastian Stan and Daisy Edgar-Jones, knowing little beyond who the two leads are and that it was streaming on Hulu. I saw that it had good reviews on Rotten Tomatoes but I opted not to read the reviews and, boy, am I glad I did because the movie takes a *sharp* turn around the 30-minute mark from a rom-com into....most assuredly not a rom-com. I don't know if knowing the twist ahead of time would have ruined it entirely, but it certainly made the remainder of the movie all the more shocking. I won't give anything away in case you haven't watched it, but I would say, avoid spoilers...and lunch.
Sometimes it's downright impossible to not know about a movie before its release, but there's nothing better than being surprised by a movie. I actually managed to go into the Oscar-nominated Drive My Car knowing next to nothing and I'm so glad I didn't. It made for a really special moviegoing experience with no predetermined expectations.
What movie(s) did you go into knowing absolutely nothing. Did it help or hurt the experience?
