YMMV / Triangle

  • Crowning Music of Awesome: The score overall is great, in particular the music in the opening scene, which has a very eerie, dreamlike quality to it.
  • Fridge Logic: Many commentators on the IMDB forums (now defunct) valiantly tried to explain the reason why the time loop resets some things but disregards others (the dead Sallys, Jess's lockets, and the dead seagull among others) only for their theories to fall flat.
  • Nightmare Fuel:
    • The scene where Sally staggers into a section of the boat filled with dozens (maybe even hundreds) of dead versions of herself.
    • A chilling moment during the ending. Jess is driving away with her son and it seems that all is going to be well, even though something is a little ... off. Then, suddenly, a seagull flies into the windscreen, dying instantly. A shaken Jess leaves the car and goes to dispose of the body on the beach... Cue the pile of seagull corpses, as Jess realises this isn't the first time she's done this.
    • It takes roughly 4 "basic" loops (the yacht reappearing) for every single iteration of Jess to turn into a desperate killer willing to murder everyone who isn't herself in attempt to prevent the boarding by the people from the 5th loop. To put that into some perspective, a single loop lasts for roughly 20 minutes. Yeaaah...
    • Timmy witnessing Jess killing her past self. His mom was just brutally murdered... by his mom.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Phelous constantly bemoans the lack of common sense that plagues the cast throughout the movie. Like why does the other Jess keep fulfilling the time loop by keeping herself hidden and spying on herself rather than just revealing herself to the pre-time cast and stopping the entire mess from happening? Or why does Greg assume the people in the boat are hiding from them for fun rather than just letting them know of their presence?
    • To be fair to Greg, he is very rational-minded, and was just trying to find a somewhat sane explanation for why the ship appears to be deserted. And from his perspective, most of the weird things didn't happen. All he ever sees is an empty ship and few minutes later he gets shot, making it impossible for him to notice anything weird, as he's killed off so fast.
    • As for Jess, during the first loop, knowledge of what is going on doesn't instantly and magically pop into her head and thus she cannot yet have decided to stop the loop. When she does figure it out (at which point she tries to stop it), it is already too late. The second time it loops she actually intends to kill the others in order to use their boat to get away.
    • Phelous also points out how Jess seems to insanely conclude the loop is murder based, despite the same amount of time occurring in each iteration and the fact that there are multiple Jesses in each loop, so why does she think killing herself will reset the loop?
    • What do you do when you see a message saying 'Go to the theatre' written on a mirror in blood?
    • A pile of notes in your own handwriting is on a floor. Obviously you need to write down another note to be sure it's your own handwriting, adding another one to the pile, rather than removing the pile entirely, so your "past" self never finds them and thus breaks the circle.
  • The Woobie: Jess.
    • Jerkass Woobie: Sally is an absolute bitch and snob but you can only imagine how she feels when she staggers to part of the ship with piles of previous murdered Sallys. Also Jess when you learn about her past, if you believe that all Jesses are the same.
