Springbreakers (2012)

 

springbreakers

Faith: Hi grandma. Having so much fun here. This place… is special. I am starting to think this is the most spiritful place I’ve ever been. I think we found ourselves here. We finally got to see some other parts of the world. We saw some beautiful things here. God, I can’t believe how many new friends we made. Friends from all over the place. I mean everyone was so sweet here. So warm and friendly. We’ It’s way more than just having a good time. God, it’s so nice to get a break from my auntie for a little while. We’ll always remember this trip. I wanna go back again next year with you. Something so amazing, magical. Something so beautiful. Feels as if the world is perfect. Like it’s never gonna end.

What happens?

I am not going to write out the entire tale on this. It sucked so I will only accomplish in annoying myself again. So, basically:

Four girls want to go get drunk and wasted on springbreak. They are broke, pretty soon the only people left on campus, and that won’t do at all. Three of the four rob a restaurant with toy guns, and suddenly they are rich. They head down to the coast where they engage in all manners of debauchery and idiocy, until they are arrested with cocaine in their systems. The judge is all “hey, you naughty girls, pay up the fine or spend some time in the prison”. They are now sadly broke, so they are doomed to eventual orange overalls that will cover their skimpy bikinis. But HEY, suddenly there is a gangster with metallic teeth implants that is willing to save them! The ganster, who has an affection for aliens, becomes their BEST friend and takes good care of them. One of the girls, who only wanted a spot of fun, not the gangsta life, finally realises she is way in over her comfortable range and says she wants to go home. Then it is all “we will miss you” and she heads out.

With only three members left, alien and his girls bounce all over town, even infiltrating a rival gangster’s club where he is most unimpressed that Alien is moving in on his territory and gets all threatening. Alien and the Three leave but he knows that he will have to kill the rival that used to be his best friend.

The rival takes revenge by drive by shooting, where the pink haired girl is shot in the arm. She ONLY NOW REALIZE SHE MIGHT BE IN DANGER, and is also soon on the bus back home. The other two girls starts (Simultaneously) bangin Alien and the three of them are now the scariest of the scaries. They head over to rival gangster’s house, where Alien and said rival both die.

Two girls that is left drives into sunset with rival gangster’s car.

The end.

Rating: 4/10

This movie has so many levels of WTF IS GOING ON HERE. To say I hated it is a kind thing to say because I despised it.

Ashley Benson and Vanessa Hudgens play the two main bad girls who influence Selena Gomez and the pink haired girl. Hudgens barely speaks because she is trying desperately hard to look aloof and high and maybe like she has acting abilities, which she doesn’t. Ashley Benson, from Pretty Little Liars, went as far as possible from the show that made her famous and desperately tries to prove that she can do gritty drama, which she can’t.

I HATED the way they shot this film. These jumpy scenes are too much for me and it rarely works. I hated the entire theme of the movie – this gritty crime they tried to make of a fluffy story that basically is “Girls Gone Wild” with criminal undertones.

This film is one of those films that support the downfall of feminism. I usually don’t let sexist jokes/references/films get to me because hey, everyone is allowed an opinion, even if it sucks. This just struck me as particularly ridiculous and degrading. I can’t believe this film even got good reviews. It is just EUGH.

 

Thoughts 6.1: June

So, wow, it is June. As per usual the year is flying. I read once years go quicker when you are older because you have more time behind you. For a young child the year takes ages simply because its ratio is so much larger than the ratio older people have to the 365 days. (Totally random, but forgive me – my brain is fried)

I have to say this year has been a mixture of good and bad so far, with plenty of learning curves thrown in. Work and life has been challenging, but definitely worth it. I have achieved most of my new year’s resolutions, so GO ME GO.

By the way, thanks for all the reblogging of Friday’s Quote For the Week! I truly appreciate it 🙂 This site, this site  and this site  all were kind enough, so go take a look, maybe you will love them too!

Rob’s Genre Grandeur for June is such a cool topic – Comic Book movies. You might have noticed in the past I have an affection for Comic Book Movies, so I am really excited. Go have a looky!

This is a bit further down the road (it starts in July), but Eric of the infamously cool IPC blog is hosting his Shitfest again. Everyone has seen a shitty movie (there are so many), so go take a look and see what is cracking over there. And check out my awesome Best Friend In The Universe, Zoe, did on Eric’s blog last week.

I will write my last exam for the first semester on the 3rd of June. YAY! I have good hopes so far that I will pass everything. The second semester will mean some very difficult shizz for me, but I hope to actually stick to my schedule and manage it all. I will someday post a post about what it means to be a part time student, because it is so challenging and I think so many people can relate.

Movies and Books, Series

This week The Fault in Our Stars is opening in cinema. I have anxiously waited for this movie since reading the book by John Green, which is one of the most amazing and beautiful books I have ever read.

Speaking of books, I am once again attempting Committed by Elizabeth Gilbert. I have read some pages sporadically, only to be side-tracked by other material. The worst is this book is actually good and an excellent successor to Eat Pray Love, but I just keep stalling and stalling. Do you have any book that you can never finish?

Game of Thrones

I am hoping to post the review of season two up within the next few weeks. Season one’s review is here and I can say that season two was just as entertaining and shocking as the first season. I can’t believe I stalled so long in watching this. It is AMAZING and I do still not trust ANYONE because so many deaths have been spoiled for me.

The Mentalist season six has some truly heart stopping moments in. I had a very true Eomer moment in here with one of my favourite characters and nearly started smashing things around. #emotional

I saw That Awkward Moment and Springbreakers recently. TAM was not good at all, but at least had some saving graces and a few fun moments. Springbreakers, however, will now forever be remembered as one of the shittiest pieces of shit I have ever watched. IT WAS SO BAD. WTF man. WTF. You can expect a scathing review on it soon.

To round off this completely random post, here is something funny:

Have a good Monday 🙂
