Ride or Die

Ride or Die ★½

My expectations were high for this one but it turned out to be a huge disappointment. Aside from the messy directing, characters with no consistency who seem to change personalities, sloppy writing (police is nowhere to be seen for most of the time even though they leave witnesses everywhere, call people, are caught in security cameras) and unnecessary backstories told in a lazy way, there's also bigger problems like the "lesbians are aggresive cheating predators who act similar to the male abusive character we're supposed to hate" and "she might be a lesbian but she can still have sex with male characters!!" stereotypes. On top of that, it is much longer than it should've been because it's too focused on unnecessary drama between the main characters and sex scenes. A man being behind this wouldn't be a problem if it wasn't for the clear sexualization and harmful stereotypes.

edit: coming back to reduce half star just for the fingers comment. completely unnecessary, misogynistic and lesbophobic.
