Let me just start by saying that you don't HAVE to have seen the Black Mirror series first before watching this, but it certainly helps. A few weeks ago, on the advice of Brittany Rose, I started the Black Mirror series on Netflix. It only took me about 4 days to get through the entire thing because I just couldn't stop watching it. It's extremely futureistic, sci-fi-like and does nothing but screw with your mind and perception of reality the whole time you're watching. Never have I shut my TV off and felt as weird after watching a show than I did with Black Mirror.

Fast forward now to the Black Mirror movie. The creators of the series (which will be due for season 5 soon) wanted to produce a film that allowed for the viewer to choose the path of the character. So now, instead of just having your mind blended into mush as you just sit there and stare, you get to choose your own path to mental mush! It's kind of hard to explain if you've never seen Black Mirror, but if you're into sci-fi and mind-f****ery than you should give this a try. Just make sure you set aside some time. If you leave the remote on the table and let the episode make the decisions for you, you'll only need about 1.5 hours. However, if you choose to get interactive with the choose-your-own, you could need upwards of 6!

Warning on both the series and the movie, don't let your kids watch this stuff. Also, if you don't like violence, trauma and some gore, probably not for you. Luckily, I'm a totally messed up sociopath, so I thought it was great!
