Oh my god!
4 September 2013 | by (Toronto) – See all my reviews

where to even start with this thing?! so, "BlinkyTM" is a short "horror" movie by Ruairi Robinson that tells the story of a kid, who's hates his life and adopts a robot. the kid starts slapping the robot around and tells the robot to kill his family and gets what he wanted.

now, what i liked: the premise overall looked interesting. ya know, kid adopts a robot and starts slapping it around, and robot goes in a killing rampage. and it also had good visuals, it wasn't like any indie movie or something. they had good cameras and good quality, and Ruairi's direction was alright.

what i hated: everything else! the dialogue.. oh god! the dialogue in this thing was really bad. every line that comes from either the robot or the kid is either stupid or nonsensical. and the pacing... oh my god, the pacing! this is thing that i hated the most in this movie. There's mountains of time where nothing's happening, it's just a annoying little kid talking to either his parents or his robot friend and the conversation goes nowhere. this makes the movie really disjointed and depressing. all the kid ever thought was just "I want a friend; i feel lonely; i want you to kill my family". this thing either had me laughing to tears or it had me falling asleep. and there was almost no f***ing writing here either. whatever script this thing had was probably written on a cocktail napkin. i don't know if Ruairi Robinson was brain-dead when he made this movie.

so, can i recommend this movie? hell no! there's no way i'm gonna recommend this horrid thing to anybody! 1/10
