I'll acknowledge the elephant in the room and say that the visuals in this film are absolutely stunning.

Overall, this movie is worth watching if you like Melanie Martinez and her music, not something that would entertain the masses (which movies don't always have to do).

It's enjoyable while getting a point across, something most movies cant do.

This movie has absolutely no plot and for the whole time I had no idea what was going on.

" sounded too bored.

The plot, or lack thereof, was choppy and hard to follow.

Worst movie i have ever seen.

It was boring and I was just waiting for it to get better.

Wtf, I literally got so anxious and confused I had a very damn bad headache my boyfriend fell asleep and such a shame cus I recommended it, I am so glad that I didnt include my entire family or friends that would be so EMBARRASING, I'm pretty sure some people had done this, may we pray for their souls...

This movie is a bunch of poorly acted, and poorly directed scenes until we get to the next song which has no story relevance most of the time.

I felt like it was all over the place and also a bit dull and cliché as if I could tell already what happens next.

That's why it becomes so dull between each music segment.

A Millenial Musical of Enjoyable Oddities .

This movie is very confusing to say the least.

Worst movie I've seen this year .

I find it entertaining, a little boring.

The storyline was confusing and played little role in these 90 mins.

So the worst thing about this "movie" isn't even that there's no plot or that the acting was practically non existent, or that it was extremely uncreative and bland.

One good thing, however, was the absolutely stunning cinematography, which kudos to Josh McKie on that one!

I wouldn't call myself a die hard fan but I found her past album, Crybaby, enjoyable.

An entire third of this movie (probably more) is just repetitive song and dance.

The characters we were supposed to care about were one dimensional and boring.

All the songs are amazing and the movie is stunning.

Perhaps it's the surrealism causing the confusion - although there are fine lines between fantasy, surrealism and using the above two to justify style over substance, and Martinez has parked her pastel pink school bus over all three.

Also, the whole alien or angel thing was extremely hard to follow.

Worst movie I've ever seen .

Cliché and cheap rhymes make this album feel run-of-the-mill.

It didn't reach it's expectations, but it was still enjoyable.

Most of the time when the characters spoke to each other the dialogues were very awkward and predictable and the facial expressions seemed forced.

This movie can barely be considered a movie, as it's really just a long, disjointed string of music videos that only sometimes tie into the plot.

The production is clumsy and formulaic.

The set of the movie is STUNNING, and I'm definitely adding the entire location of K-12 to my travel bucket list.

But even the music video parts become overdone and drawn out.

I do like the intentions that the movie had, representing many issues currently undermined by society, however I feel as though many of them were highly cliché, and were added into the movie's timeline only to make the movie seem more inclusive to all so as not to cause unease when addressing which problems were most important and had to be featured in the movie.

It's basically a 90 minutes music video with no plot at all!

Personally, I think the whole thing was so cringe and cliché, from the plot, acting, to songs.

However, many found this film hard to follow.

Worst movie ever.

This movie is so disappointing, so worthless, and so contrived that I struggle to appreciate it from any standpoint.

I wish that kind of plot had been consistent in the movie as it was a very enjoyable last thirty minutes or so because when there was a plot, it was so much better!!!

A plotless abomination of a 90 minute music video disguised as a lackluster movie.

As a writer, the script and plot was super disappointing and cliche.

I loved the songs, but the movie was very confusing and didnt make much sense at parts.

The acting was terrible, the storyline was all over the place and hard to follow, and the first half of the movie kept going off plot.
