"Ideally, I should've been born in the Rococo era"  
♣ The other night ABC Family was airing Cruel Intentions, a movie in which I absolutely love. But I watched it just to laugh hysterically at which words they chose to substitute for the profanities and lewdness, let alone cutting out the greatest scenes ever; gotta love the wackiness that is censorship. I really ought to get that film on DVD someday, dammit.

♣ Last night Voodoo Moon premiered on the SciFi Channel, a movie starring Charisma Carpenter. While I didn't watch the entire thing, I did tape it to view for later. Here's my short-verdict of what I did see: Being that it's a SciFi Channel original movie, the pacing is somewhat slow in the beginning with not a lot of detail, and too many damn commercials. However once Charisma appeared onscreen I was immediately tuned in. It's nice seeing her in another supernatural project that isn't Buffy or Angel, and I really liked her character and her connection with the actor playing her brother. The overall concept of the plot seemed interesting, although because I haven't finished watching it all I'm still hazed about what was going on....other than there's a demon that keeps hunting Cole down and destroying all his friends, and that Heather and Cole both survived the massacre of their town when they were younger. And with a shallow note, Charisma looked beautiful in this; I loved her hair, and just her outfits she wore. But that's because hello, I'm a Charisma fan. *glees* But besides that, I thought she portrayed the character nicely without me thinking it's Cordelia Chase. I should probably watch the rest of the movie tonight, whenever I get the chance that is. Luckily I get to fastforward through the commercials, because with television-movies (and shows, for that matter) that's always the suckiest thing with advertisements interrupting at the best parts.

♣ Okay, it's like over 90 degrees outside right now. Hmm, it must be almost summertime in California....

♣ Recently, I rented and watched Kamikaze Girls. I am utterly in love with this movie, it's so adorable! If anyone has a chance to look into this fabulous film, I highly recommend checking it out. It has the absurdity and wackiness that is of the original manga-novel of eccentric pop culture references and exaggerations, yet it has the morality sweetness of the true meaning of friendship between the two oddest and unusual girls from opposite sides. Everything from the Lolita-style fashion of Baby, The Stars Shine Bright, to Momoko's naive and deadpan look at the world to Ichigo's Yanki girl motorcycle gang lifestyle and headbuttings, it's not your typical young American pop-teen movie, thank goodness. It actually has something for everyone to enjoy. Seriously, I am deeply and totally in love with this film. It may seem bizarre to those unfamiliar with Japanese cinema, but if you look past that it really is an awesome film with moral and humility lessons.

♣ What's with all the spontaneous trolling journals constructing fandom hating memes lately? Seriously, there's like several for the most popular (or most talked about) fandoms on LiveJournal alone. At first it seemed pointless, however I'm finding it amusing that nothing is being incredibly wanky. Heh. At least the comments are entertaining.

♣ In approximately one week my summer class will start. Yays!

The weirdness of ABC Family running Cruel Intentions blows my mind! It's probably the least family-friendly movie in my DVD collection!

I'd really like to see Kamikaze Girls.

I love Cruel Intentions. As the person above me said, it's so weird that ABC family plays it at all. Even the edited version is a little sketchy for a family channel. :-/

First off, I love your icon. *g*

And yes, it's strange that the channel would even consider airing such a film that is completely opposite of family-friendly viewing. It certainly was odd watching it in an edited version, because some things just didn't connect unless you saw the uncensored version first.

Cruel Intentions is such a good movie. I can't imagine how much ABC Family must cut the film, but the unaltered version is such love. *sigh* Maybe one day I'll buy the DVD, too.

Seriously! What is with that? Although, really, a lot of them are no where near as wanky as they could be. I'm happy to see so many people (at least from what I've seen) at least signing in with their user name. Going anonymous on top of everything is just such a cowardly thing to do.

Enjoy your summer class!

It's pretty strange, yet hilarious, that a proclaimed family channel would air something so promiscuous as Cruel Intentions. Granted they've done it before so, heh. The amount of scenes they cut didn't bother me as much as then words they used in place of other profane ones. Whacked as censorship is, it was pretty funny. Yes, the unaltered one is WAY better than its censored version.

Thank you! I'm so psyched about attending this class. :D

I have a psychopath trolling my journal stalking me, and attacking me....

much love for Cruel Intentions.

I read about that the other day, and I must've missed who this supposed stalkerish troll could be. Anyway, you can ban them from commenting on your journal if they keep harassing you. It's such an immature and cowardly thing to do, creating an account just to say horrible and mean things.

Cruel Intentions is definitely love. ♥

Oh yes... I deleted their comments because well.... I was just tired of dealing with them... I was done. And then.... well check out my latest posts... I left you a note.
Renéerogueslayer452 on June 8th, 2006 11:23 pm (UTC)
Well honey, deleting the comments is nice and all, but actually banning them from commenting in your journal ever again would be better. Also, I believe if this person continuously tries to harass you (in their own trolling journal or otherwise) you can report them to LJ Abuse and get them suspended, as this is a personal attack. I can't believe anyone would do something so cowardly and immature.

I'll be checking out that message. Hang in there, okay? **hugs**
