On December 28, 2018, the online-streaming service Netflix released its first interactive movie for adults; consisting of multiple realities/endings, Will Poulter (the eyebrow kid from “We’re the Millers”), and the entire film is a trip from start to finish.
The trailer for “Bandersnatch” was released only a day before is premier and gave no indications of an interactive plot.
Throughout the movie, you as the viewer get to take control of the main character Stefan Butler (played by Fionn Whitehead) and make decisions on his behalf. The interactive film is based in the ’80s, where Stefan has been working on coding a video game named Bandersnatch. He gets the opportunity to meet Colin Ritman (Will Poulter) who is a famous game creator at the software company, Tuckersoft.
For those who have already watched it, there’s a ton of foreshadowing and hidden imagery/symbolism. Season two episode two of the TV show “Black Mirror” actually contains the same P.A.C.S. symbol as “Bandersnatch”. Not to mention, Colin’s video game ‘Nosedive’ is probably foreshadowing Colin or Stefan jumping off of a balcony. If you’re looking to get your mind blown, “Bandersnatch” would be a great movie to envelop yourself into.

Nowadays “Fortnite” is irrelevant since the new game “Apex Legends” premiered. The new game took over all gaming fans by storm. The new game is similar to "Fortnite" but with a few different mechanics.
"Apex" consists of being able to play in a squad of three. Unlike “Fortnite” there is no building. The game doesn’t have different variant weapons only attachment variants. The weapons can have an attachment that makes the damage increase significantly. "Apex" does have in-game purchases but not as much as "Fortnite". "Fortnite" has got on fan's nerves by adding stuff people do not like. The eight different characters have their own special abilities and style of play.
The maps between "Fortnite" and "Apex" Legends are very different from each other. To get around the map on "Apex" Legends are numerous zip lines and balloons you can fly from. Apex has a tracking system "Fortnite" does not have such as how many eliminations with certain characters or special ability uses.
