Summer of Mesa

Summer of Mesa ★½

I go to cape cod every summer and this shit NEVER happens to me 😡😡

this felt like it was trying so hard to emulate a certain aesthetic but there was no reason for that aesthetic or substance behind it. like it took place in the 80s but I genuinely forgot bc other than the title card there was no indication that it did. the dialogue was so stilted and unnatural that I didn’t believe in the romance. and yeah it’s way too similar to cmbyn but without the stuff that actually made cmbyn a good movie. like why would you market it with the exact same color scheme and font 😭😭😭😭

but at the same time. ALL the love to the people who made this bc small low budget movies are hard to make and it’s on youtube for free so really who am I to complain.
