What Movie?

What movie?

Cruel Intentions, a contemporary American high school version of Choderlos de Laclos’ 18th century novel, Les Liaisons dangereuses(great book written a few years before the French Revolution).

Heh, didn't even need to play the clip to recognize SMG.

Akubi said...

Buffy the Vampire Slayer?

NotAnOptimist said...

Yep. It is hilarious seeing her as Buffy, and then watching her in Scream 2...

Ogg the Caveman said...

For the most part Cruel Intentions didn't do much for me, but I did enjoy the scene in the clip. I guess I just like watching people get what's coming to them.

@notanoptimist,
While I remember the beginning of Scream 2 I must have either gotten distracted or fallen asleep, because I never watched the whole film. Would you say it's worth watching from beginning to end?

@Ogg,
In the Choderlos de Laclos novel, the ending is a bit more depressing, but I thought the somewhat lighter note better suited the context of the film.

@ Akubi:

You didn't ask me, but I didn't think too much of Scream 2. It was neither fish nor fowl. Not scary enough to be a horror film, not funny enough to be a comedy, and not enough nudity to be porn.

NotAnOptimist said...

Agree with Ogg's assessment. If you liked Scream, and you've got a few hours of time to kill, then it's alright.

For whatever reason that song makes me remember something I forgot or didn't know what else to do with.
