For a film series with five installments, Final Destination was remarkably uninterested in exploring its own premises. Sometimes there was an unseen hand nudging things around to set the mousetrap in motion, most of the time it just appeared to be a stroke of horrendous luck— in either case, nobody really cares so long as it ends with a cool-looking dismemberment. There was obviously some supernatural force hounding these kids above and beyond the poetic-but-mundane sense death pursues us all, but the series was blithely uninterested in exploring who or what this force is.
That's not to say I didn't see Final Destination 5 in theaters (seeing any movies in theaters is extremely rare for me— hell, these days seeing any movies at all is extremely rare for me) but I realized it the kind of movie where it's impossible to leave the theater without some measure of shame, and that as long as it outputs soul-killing garbage like this, Hollywood's claim to be the weaver of dreams is fraudulent.
Of course, then I completely sat out The Tree of Life. Nice going, moron.
