As You Are

A couple of days ago I was alerted to the news that As You Are was available to rent on iTunes and Vudu. I was super excited because i’ve been waiting on this movie to drop ever since it created a buzz at the Sundance Film Festival last year. Actually, that was just a bonus, I really initially was only interested in it because  Amanda Stenberg was in it. When both the La film festival and NOLA film festival rolled around and weren’t screening that movie, I thought all hope was lost. And it kind of was until this week.

Ok, so I rented it and it took me two days to finish it. Man, I don’t think I liked it. The movie is set in the 90s and is about 3 friends, Jack, Mark, and Sarah. Jack and Mark become step brothers of sorts. Not really, their parents just start dating and move in together. The boys have a pretty good brotherly relationship until they take it to the next level. Now Jack is in love with Mark. Mark is with it to an extent. Sarah ends up dating them both throughout the movie. When she moves on to Mark, Jack is super upset. Not at her, but at Mark because he thought him and Mark would be together based on the game Mark had been spitting to him. At this point, they no longer live together because their parents have broken up. Mark’s dad is an abusive security officer and beats Mark into submission anytime he gets out of line. And because he suspects he’s gay. Mark ends up dead via a gunshot wound. When he died he was with Jack in the woods. So did Mark kill himself, or did Jack kill him? That’s ultimately what the movie is about. Finding out what happened in the woods.

Half the movie are flashbacks giving us the groups backstory, and the other half is present day inside the interrogation room. The cop really irks my nerves. He’s playing good cop. bad cop and it’s so cliche and lame. It’s so easy to predict 95% of the entire movie from the first 10 min, yet it takes nearly 2 hours to get to the point. So now you have to sit through this long drawn out movie just to see what really happened to Mark. I am not a fan of this movie at all. Well, only a little cause of Amanda #Rue4Life, who by the way isn’t even in it enough for my liking. Let the records show that in addition to it taking me 2 days to finish the movie, I also paused it 3 times on night 2 to see how many minutes I had left. There was a lot of unnecessary filler material in there in my opinion. At then the movie finally ended and i was like…

I’m not going to go into detail about the end, but you can probably gather how it ends based on the above picture. Don’t let my opinion of the movie keep you from seeing it. I always like to read reviews, but still see the movie for myself because I might disagree with the reviewer. You can find As You Are on iTunes and Vudu

“There’s only room for two, I’ve been making less room for you…”

Finally there is someone other than Nolan and Emily in the Hamptons who is not afraid to challenge Victoria. I can’t wait to get to know this Natalie broad. She seems like she can really give Victoria a run for her money. You know how some people THINK they can hang with the big dogs, but we know they can’t (i.e Margot taking on Emily)? Well I don’t get that vibe from here. Can’t wait to find out what her beef with the Graysons is all about.

Nolan to rescue once again! I love him and Louise together. Hopefully he really falls in love with her. Like on a romantic level. That would make my heart burst with delight. She NEEDS someone like Nolan. Her mom is a stone cold bitch! How much money did Louise inherit? Billions? The way the mom is acting, you would think she inherited the world! How about you stop sabotaging Louise and go out and make your own money. You guys think Lymon is as innocent as he claims to be in this shit storm? Me either. If his name wasn’t reason enough not to trust him, his “anything for my campaign” mentality should sway you. Him and his mom can go kick rocks all the way back to Mississippi or wherever the hell they are from.

Margot and Jack. Seems like she is considering giving that relationship another go. They are both lonely as fuck so might as well, right? Wrong! Right now I don’t think she is capable of using Jack to cripple Emily, but she will eventually grow to that level. And then I will hate her forever. Jack is so oblivious all the time so he won’t even know whats going on until it’s too late. Now that Jack is involved in her with hunt for Emily, I hope she takes a step back and rethinks her decision to go to war with her.

Ben and Emily. I think she might actually like him or something. She has needs no information from him or help, so i guess that means she is really digging the scene. She went to his house on her own free will. And her comes lover boy, always showing up too late, but just in time to see Ben and Emily macking on each other. When will he realize that he and Emily will never be? Get over it, Jack.

Dream Team

revenge-405-featured

I can’t believe I questioned Emily’s actions last night when she jumped one of the guards and didn’t take his gun. I should have known she had a far better plan. After all, she is Emily mothafucking Thorne! Drawing a message on that guys back for Jack…

giphy

Glad stupid face saw the message and was able to decipher its meaning. That’s the least he could do, it’s his fault that Emily got caught up anyway. How about Malcolm and his thermometer. WHAT?! That was so smart of him. Once I saw that below normal body temp though, I would have shot Victoria in the head. Still would have shot David too, but in the knee and only after I offed Victoria. Then I’d take him back to see me murk Emily (I would never dream of killing Emily. This is just what I would do if I were Malcolm).

Well, shit certainly got real when they got back to the warehouse. The Grinch’s heart grew 3 sizes when she sacrificed herself for Emily. Victoria earned my respect. A thank you, never, but my respect, yes. Then Jack and Ben show up and all of a sudden everyone is in their own corner fighting simultaneously. It was a bit chaotic. I was basically IN the tv SCREAMING when Malcolm was walking Emily over to the furnace. Even though I knew she wasn’t going to be thrown in, it still gave me major anxiety. Shout out to David for putting an end to Malcolm once and for all. It took like SIX bullets to take him down though. That’s some straight up evil!

I thought Eloise’s mom was really dead, so when Nolan hugged her i was like 0_0 while questioning my own sanity. I’m glad she has Nolan to watch out for her. I like her. I don’t care if she killed her daddy 😦

I Sentence you to DEATH

jack+revenge

Fucking Jack Porter. WHY hasn’t he been killed yet? I mean, you already killed his brother and wife, why not make it a family affair? It could have been insinuated that Carl went to live with Charlotte, which would probably have made her turn her life around. There you go, we’re done with those characters for good now. No need to wonder what happened to them, I just gave you guys a great way to off them. You’re Welcome. David specifically told you to stay out of his dealings, but noooo, the boyscout in Jack got the better of him. Now he’s going to get EVERYONE killed. Ugghhhh

Once David finds out that Malcolm has Emily, I hope his first move is to go and skin Jack alive. Emily can hold her own while he takes a day to mollywhop Jack. Then he needs to come for her. Together they will be unstoppable. Victoria is quite the son of a bitch as well, but her specialty isn’t of the physical nature. I’m sure she will be able to find someway to help the duo though.

Fucking Ben. Now he knows who Emily really is. He’s obviously going to throw a monkey wrench in everything now. Hopefully Nolan can keep him at bay. If not, maybe he will get caught up in the cross hairs and get himself killed. Either scenario is fine with me.

I’m glad Nolan and Emily are looking out for Eloise. She needs a keeper.

I have a possible 5150…

I’m over David “no loyalty” Clarke. I kind of wish he really was dead. His presence has caused more harm than good so far. Emily dedicated the last 4 seasons of her life to avenging a death that never occurred. You have been lurking in the shadows for 10 years. Did it never once cross your mind to go and look for her? Were you scared your cover might be blown had someone seen and recognized you? If so, that is one of the weakest excuses I have ever heard! If you managed to live off the grid for 10 years, I’m sure you could have looked for her unnoticed. I know he says he thought she was dead, but “Amanda” didn’t die until around season 2. So what kept you from searching from the time you escaped to the time of her untimely death? David, you’re pissing me off.

Who else was offended when he told Emily he can’t be her father, bullshit dumb shit, it’s too dangerous right now. Excuse me sir, but did she not just kick ass and take names in that hospital room? Had it not been for her, you wouldn’t even be able to fix your raggedy mouth to even say those words! Emily is capable of anything. You should know that by now. She’s been avenging you for YEARS! She knows what she’s doing. If anything, you will survive longer, and may even be able to get your life back with Emily by your side.

And another thing, why must you lie all day long?! David, you are the shadiest of the shady bunch. Are you really even innocent regarding the flight incident? Emily needs to tie you up in her closet and torture the answers out of YOU! I don’t trust him one bit!

You know who else I don’t trust? Jack’s hot partner. Can you find another case to solve? Actually, keep poking the bear (Emily). I can’t wait to see how she puts an end to your annoying invasive antics. Then again, based on Sunday’s episode, you guys might be able to help each others causes. Well, you’ll be helping Emily. Emily will probably just be blowing smoke up your arse!

Victoria and Daniel can both jump off of a cliff.

Nolan needs to cut and comb his hair.

I’d like to thank our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, for David Clark finally shaving his disgusting facial hair off.

Crazy red head broad….I kind of feel sorry for her.

Charlotte, Public enemy #1

RevengeSeason4TrailerMeme

Emily is killing me. When she woke up on that stretcher, I wanted her to be halfway done planning the demise of Charlotte. She is letting her displaced feelings get in the way. Yes that’s your sister, yes you kidnapped her, yes you destroyed her family, but so! SHE TRIED TO KILL YOU! And not a fast painless bop on the head. She knocked you out and then SET THE BUILDING ON FIRE! And to add insult to injury, she burned down Jack’s bar/house. How many ways must she show you she gives no fucks about anyone decent, Emily? What is her beef with Jack? She’s a bucket and a half of crazy anyway, but that’s nothing new! We’ve known that since like season 1 or 2! When will people stop trusting her with big, damning news? SHE CAN’T HANDLE IT! She causes more trouble than her life is worth. Which is why Emily needs to finish her. If she doesn’t want to kill her, have her committed like Victoria! Ultimately I want her dead, but i’m willing to compromise.

Broke down Daniel. That’s what you get! Shouldn’t have tried to kill Emily in season 3! I honestly don’t care what happens to him. If he has to become a prostitute to make ends meet, so be it. I still won’t feel bad for him.Oh and I hope Shady Sara (girl from lockup with victoria) ruins you. I know you are going to try and swoon her so you can have money again. Something tells me she isn’t crazy at all, but sneaky and plotty. Did I always hate Daniel? No. I started to dislike him when he was secretly seeing Sara behind Emily’s back even though Emily was seeing Aiden. My loyalty lies with Emily forever and always! So Daniel…YOU CAN SUCK IT!

I feel like David recognized Emily last night. I sure hope he did! Then hopefully, with Emily’s help, he will realize what a lying skank bitch Victoria is and team up with his first born to take her down to China Town. That would be the most epic team ever! He’s managed to stay off the radar for like 10 years which is a testament to his craftiness. And we all know what Emily is capable of. Oh, and how could I forget Nolan?! He’s a key player as well. I can’t wait until they all join forces and form the revenge justice league.

Charlotte, you are DEAD TO ME!

revenge-1-photo-600x280

WHAT THE FUCK? AM I TRIPPING OR DID CHARLOTTE REALLY KNOCK EMILY’S BLOCK OFF WITH A SNEAK ATTACK?! AND BURN DOWN THE STOAWAY WITH EMILY’S TEMPORARILY LIFELESS BODY IN IT? Charlotte, you have no idea what you have done! You’ve made it this far BECAUSE of Emily! If I were Emily, I would have killed you in season 2! You ungrateful slut! While you were getting used and abused by Gideon, Jack and everybody was worried sick and doing all kinds of undercover shit to keep you out of trouble…Like when you got caught snorting coke off the fucking balcony, Cop Jack looked the other way. He could have lost his job! So you wanna take away his job AND his home/bar? That’s why when your ass was on the ledge thinking about jumping, I was all for it! Chanting “Jump, jump, jump” from my couch! And who was there trying to save the day? Emily and Jack! And this is how you thank them? I’M DONE!

Emily, I knew you fucked up when you told her all your secrets you’ve been keeping since season 1! You have a good heart Ems, even though you are known to obliterate everything in you wake if you feel wronged, but a good heart nonetheless.That will be your downfall, my friend. You almost got caught up because of your love for Jack last season, and now you DID get caught up because of unstable as Charlotte!! I know you will make it out of your fiery grave and I hope you make it your life’s mission to destroy Charlotte. She now knows what you’re capable of. Keep her on edge. As soon as her crazy ass thinks her attempt on your life is all water under the bridge…STRIKE!

Victoria, Victoria, Victoria. Why won’t you tell David that Emily is Amanda and end this once and for all? You are a petty whore. I can’t wait until David knows the truth. And I hop he and Emily team up together and LAY YOU OUT!
