          This movie was so cheesy and stupid, came here just to see if I wasn’t the only one who thought this.

                    I've never watched this movie, but I think a lot of mistakes movies, or script writers make, is not actually writing a story but being extremely blunt and systematic. Especially with a movie such as this where there's puzzles to solve, it shifts into a play by play. Heres the problem and this is how you solve it ya know? Again I haven't watched this movie so my opinion is not fully directed at it I just see this problem with a lot of shittier movies that come out just to be a movie that doesn't dive into development or fully portray a plot to the extent they could've. Basically the industry needs more creativity and details do matter. I believe this is also why most movies based off of books suck. They strip down a book to the bare minimum and do a play by play and take that writers touch of subtle dialogue and descriptions out. Anyways this turned into a thought dump for me sorry haha

                      I'm going to do Th3Birdman's job and sin this movie due to Jeremy's/CinemaSins' bullshit:

                      2- Sinning the movie for good storytelling.
                      3- Jeremy doesn't know what "panicking" is.
                      4- Yes, as the likelihood of survivors decreases, the clues would get easier, since there's likely less people to have made it that far, especially since this one room seems designed for only one person to survive to make it.
                      6- This bullshit isn't a sin of the movie.
                      8- Jeremy sins something he likes cliché.
                      9- Sinning the movie for proper storytelling and foreshadowing.
                      15- If the movie DID tell you how the puzzle was solved, you'd sin it for being boring and having nothing to do with the larger plot at hand, you hypocrite.
                      16- Minos easily could've just made only one day and time available on the website, forcing them to all be there at the same time and _controlling_ the situation to avoid them showing up at different times. So, sinning the movie for proper explanation on how they all arrived at the same day and time.
                      17- That's clearly five-dash-ten. Are you blind or what?
                      18- Jeremy thinks randomized license numbers is a sin of the movie and "can't be real." You paddin' the sin count, bro?
                      20- There's no cell signal there and they planned on killing all of them afterwards anyway, so his phone being there doesn't matter much to begin with, even if Danny wound up the winner.
                      23- Later they prove that there _are_ clues inside the types of places Danny searched, so what the hell are you talking about?
                      24- Sinning the movie for this bullshit.
                      26- Except they're being monitored and the game is rigged, so the Game Masters are taking all of that into account and forcing dangerous situations onto them, even if none of them triggered it, as what happens in ALL THE OTHER ROOMS.
                      27- Sinning the characters here for not figuring out it's a recording, while also implying them to be really dumb later on. Also, they're panicking and Zoey is the only one calm enough and smart enough to figure out it's a recording, given the situation.
                      30- This is a clever line to establish Ben's character, that you refer to as "a dick" and not a sin of the movie. So, sinning character establishment.
                      33- Jeremy doesn't know what movie editing is.
                      34- Of course he would; they establish he's been in a LOT of them and is a big fan of them.
                      35- The point is that they show Minos is legitimately trying to kill them, and to build tension that they can't just be rescued. You'd also have sinned the movie if someone DIDN'T sneak a phone into the room, considering five out of six of them are millennials.
                      36- This coming from someone who thinks a "10" is a "40"?
                      38- This bullshit is not a sin of the movie.
                      39- The cabin is only one part of the ice room, so the cabin itself isn't the danger, the ice and cold outside is.
                      42- She clearly means the "getting them to fight with each other" part and not the "limited resources" part, you MORON.
                      45- 1) How do you know most people can't climb a tree on their first try? 2) Minos clearly wants them to have some fighting chance of winning. 3) Most everything in the room is fake and 4) You say MOST people; implying SOME can climb a tree on their first try. Mike is one of those people.
                      46- They SHOW YOU that Ben has poor customer service skills at his job in the beginning of the movie. So sinning a character for acting in-character.
                      47- Jeremy has never heard of an "aquarium" before.
                      48- Yes, movie is EXACTLY implying that!
                      (50/51)- Okay, these are legitimate sins. They also could've tried smashing the ice box, as well.
                      55- This bullshit.
                      56- This room was meant for Zoey, who was hanging upside down in the crash where her mother died. Zoey's message Minos sent to her was also "open new doors," implying there's more than one way to escape the rooms. And since they are being monitored, the Game Masters likely wouldn't have let them _all_ die in this one room, especially if they are also betting on who will win. In other words, they still would've had ways to escape, even if Amanda didn't make it this far, and especially since this is Zoey's room.
                      62- Jeremy confuses "being a dick" for being a heartless sociopath who has no remorse for watching someone sacrifice their life for everyone else.
                      63/64- There's more than one way to clear the room, since these rooms have been play-tested, as they show at the end of the movie, and since they wouldn't know how lives or dies, which is the point of the billionaires watching them and placing bets on them.
                      66- HOW is it "too little, too late" when Zoey has been the smartest one out of them and has solved most of the clues by herself? They SHOULD be listening to her, by this point. This sin is bullshit.
                      68- The REAL sin here is there's only two extremes to an EKG machine; extremely high heart rate and NO heart rate, which means killing Mike should have worked as a potential solution to open the vent.
                      69- If any of those things happened, then they just would've solved the puzzle with no problem. Or, the Game Masters would've set them up in some other way, like gassing the room with the drug.
                      70/71- The "Reindeer room" wasn't a real room; it was part of the Ice Room and that was meant for Jason. That's why there was no danger to the puzzle inside the cabin. There's six rooms in total, and the order of who's who is: Amanda (Heat), Jason (Ice), Zoey (Upside-Down), Danny (Hospital), Ben (Drug), Mike (Library).
                      72- So, what, do you just expect them to yadda-yadda over the movie just because they already showed you Sam survives? Jeremy doesn't know what plot is.
                      77- There's a working oxygen mask there because, as they said, the rooms are EXACT REPLICAS of their real hospital rooms. Also, the REAL SIN of this scene is them entering the room for clean-up duty while the game is still going on. How do they know Sam wouldn't go back to try to rescue Zoey?
                      79- Yes. That was the key to the puzzle. Dumb-ass.
                      80- Jeremy assumes extremely powerful, rich, and homicidal people would be bad at keeping secrets.
                      81- No shit, Sherlock. That's why they had them RSVP. So they could properly prepare and know when all six of them were intending to show up. Also,t he real sin here is not offering a higher cash reward, which would better explain why all six of them would be motivated to go. Ten grand probably isn't enough to convince Jason to go to an escape room, considering he was already semi-rich and successful anyway, even if he was also greedy.
                      82- THEY DID. That's what the CLUES WERE FOR.
                      83- This bullshit. Also, the real sin here is not just having a gun and shooting Sam and instead, opting to choke him. The hazmat guys, for some reason, had a gun.
                      85- THIS. FUCKING. LAUGH.
                      86- Jeremy doesn't know what the fuck a Deus Ex Machine is cliché.
                      87-111- Or... And I know this might be a stretch for you to comprehend... The detective and/or cops ARE ALSO IN ON IT. And Jeremy calls the people in this movie stupid...
                      112- They DID send goons there. Zoey knocked them out. And no, Minos probably wouldn't have anticipated both the hazmat goons AND the Game Master all dying by two college-aged students in critical health.
                      113- That is LITERALLY WHAT ZOEY JUST FUCKING DID! She beat the hazmat guys and the Game Master by outsmarting them. Jeremy sins his own bullshit cliché. 50 sins.
                      114- Yeah. That's the fucking point, as they show you in the NEXT SCENE.
                      116- What is confusing about this? You just said it: Sequel baiting.
                      117- What the fuck are you talking about? They SHOW YOU THE PLANE TICKETS as they "time and knowledge" parts. And they never say when the "puppetmaster" found out about the plane tickets; which means they could've set this flight simulator stuff up within 24 hours or less, especially considering how quickly they cleared the first building of evidence and how you also imply they knew Zoey would figure it out and fed her bread crumbs to find them in Manhattan anyway. In other words, this sin is bullshit.

                        At this point, CinemaSins just comes off as nitpicky assholes. This movie was actually good and these sins are a really a stretch. At least 2012-2015 CinemaSins pointed out actual flaws in the movies. I'm not sure how much longer I can stay subbed to these guys...

For real, while watching the movie, the first thing I thought about it was: "I bet Cinemasins would point out they are freezing to death while this guy has a lighter and there's a huge house made of wood IN A FOREST." I think you are losing your charm here, Cinemasins.

                                                                      • DarkKyugara

The movie is seriously telling me they will use the fire from the lighter to melt the ice block from the key, but they will not use to craft a campfire? Is this real life? What's going on here, can someone explain to me how this is real? How in real life, would someone think "let's use fire to melt an ice block while we freeze to death"? I can't handle this, it's too much stupid to exist, it can't exist, the movie can be allowed to exist with something so stupid like this.
