A new definition of Boring
28 June 2018 | by The CouchpotatoesSee all my reviews

Thanks to Shortwave I think we have a new definition for the word "boring", if not "extremely boring". First of all I am a fan of sci-fi movies. There is always alot of potential in that genre of movies because almost everything is permitted, even the craziest stories, but it has to be a good entertaining story. And that's the major problem with this movie, it is everything but entertaining. The story is boring and incredibly slow. The acting is a disaster, especially from Juanita Ringeling. She's so annoying to watch that it is difficult to do worse than her. I don't know if it was the director's orders but apparently the main thing she does is walk very slowly and caress all kind of random objects, like a tree, a bamboo stick, a door, a kitchen counter, her private parts and so on. I really struggled to stay awake and I was not even tired. How this movie got those ratings on here is just a mystery to me.
