Episode 102: Force Majeure

Force Majeure

A sudden avalanche at an Alpine ski resort shatters the serenity of a vacationing Swedish family when the father flees without his wife and children.

IMDb

I love skiing and I love Sweden. The description hints at a father's abandonment of his family during an avalanche, which is metal, and then the movie starts off with Swedes skiing at a beautiful resort in the French Alps so this read-along foreign movie had high hopes from me. Shortly after getting rad though, the passive aggressive mind games of a disfunctional family start to become the entire plot and it's Four of Hearts all over again. I can't believe there exists a family of four this socially inept and I really can't believe that the dramatization of it is award-winning entertainment. Force Majeure will make you angry if you haven't been exposed to this kind of crap before but after 102 episodes of random Netflix movies, we have become immune and can pitch out zero-star scores without losing sleep. Listen to episode 20 to hear a younger, more naive Random Reviewer team react to our first movie of this caliber. After the news, we have a ton of Ramblings; 5 movies, 4 bands, and a bunch of video games. Next week, we're watching Bad Ass 2: Bad Asses.
