Out of context rant number 84

I guess you think you're so cool having a car and all that shit. You're probably f*ck-rich and live in your own apartment. You think you own the WORLD.

But know this: I know what you're doing to her...you even have the f*cking guts to do that while I was standing right outside your car window? And you even had a GIRLFRIEND that time, for godsakes...what the f*ck is wrong with you, snatchface? You think its okay, that what you're doing is right?! Maybe in your rich, pampered world it is. But not where I'm from. Where I'm from I was taught at least the decency to be loyal and to respect the trust given to you by a loved one and to not do anything you might regret in the end. You know what I mean, idiot. Guess they didn't teach you that, huh?

Now I hear you're a free man and courting her as we speak...well guess what, f*cker...you try to do that shit to her again and I'll make sure you're family won't have enough pieces to identify you.

I pray this never happens to you.

I pray that this never happens to you.


*****

What are the stupid things you would do for love?

Not the "dance in the rain naked" or "steal flowers from a flower shop to give to her" kind of stupid. I'm talking about the kind of stupid that will leave hearts broken, prides hurt, and people angry.

Another question: how would you feel if someone close to you does something really stupid for love? It may be your sibling, or it may be your closest friend, or even your own mom and dad.

How would you feel if that someone engaged in destructive behavior in the name of "love?" Namely, going out, doing stuff, or maybe fucking around with someone already in a relationship?

Call it two-timing, double crossing, anything you like...but no matter how pretty you paint it as, no one can deny the damage this sort of action does to people. It's the lowest, most despicable form of superdickery you could possibly do. It's that low because two-timing destroys trust, which is the very foundation of any good relationship. No, not just destroy, it basically crumbles that trust with their very own hands, drop it on the ground and gets it pissed on for good measure.

That's why I think two-timers are the worst sort of shit on earth. Mind you, I've never been two-timed before (that one time doesn't count, as we were never in a relationship to begin with), but it's just so frustrating to know that someone close to me is dicking around with a guy who already has a girlfriend, and thinks that it's "cool" coz "she knows what she's doing".

And what's worse about it is, I can't do anything about it. I try to intervene, I'll look like butting in on someone else's business. I kill the guy, I end up in jail. And I hate the fact that even though it's morally, ethically, and emotionally wrong, both parties are okay with it, traipsing around with a wink and a smile, saying "we're just having fun!"

And being powerless is the worst feeling in the world.

So I let it go on, seeing those happy smiles and secret stow-aways into the darkness, praying that if I can't teach her that it's wrong, then she should learn the hard way. God forbid she does something she'll regret the rest of her life, but *knock on wood* I hope she learns before its too late to turn back.

I will not, however, knock on wood wishing the guy to be castrated and locked and burned alive in the very same conveyance he uses to execute his dirty dealings. One less idiot to populate my world.

And if I find out that he's doing improper things (for my apprehension of using a stronger language. Kids read my blog too) to this person close to me...not even death, not even hell (which is the place I'm practically sure he'll end up in), not even the devil himself will inflict so much pain to this person as I will.

I pray, dear reader, that this never happens to you.

MOVIE REVIEW: HARRY POTTER AND THE ORDER OF THE PHOENIX

You know those times when people tell you a simple joke, and you laugh at it because it was funny, and then in the end you go, "Wait a minute...what?"

That's exactly like Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. Only that joke is 2 and a half hours long and the confusion at the end lingers on forever.

I don't know where to start with this film. Granted I've never read the book from which it was based on (Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, duh), and coming into the theater, I was expecting it to be newbie friendly (like most movies are supposed to be). Instead I am thrust into a conflict I don't know anything about, and forced to join an 'order' I want no part of, and expected to look for a plot device I wasn't even told to look for in the first place.

As usual, all "Harry Potter is 15 but the guy playing him is 20" jokes aside, Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson (pseudo-lolita obsession) and that Ron Weasley kid (forgot his name. He's that forgettable!) give okay performances. Their classmates get a little bit of the spotlight this time, becoming part of Harry's army against Voldemort (yeah, he-who-should-shut-up-now)...I think. Needless to say the 'joke' analogy I described at the beginning of this blog post is in effect.


WRITING: (2/10)
I dunno. Is this where the badness started? I don't know how hard it is to translate a book, which is like, already written down, into a screenplay, but I wish there was some sort of explanation as to why stuff happens, you know?

So there was fear-mongering...Order of the Phoenix stuff (was the "order" the teachers, or those students Harry recruited?)...Voldemort's invading Harry's mind (I think...)...Hagrid was away from Hogwarts (for no apparent reason) and is back again (which was so forced no one really cared)...he brought his brother with him (an ugly giant baby which was practically screaming "I was put here as a plot point!")...Sirius' house elf is speaking in gibberish and Sirius silences him (which I find out only now that what the house elf said was pivotal to the seventh and last book...*slams head on wall*)

Then Sirius' crazy-ass sister escapes Azkaban (and never heard of again until the last 15 minutes of this movie!) and then all that hoopla about Voldemort...but near the climax of the movie, I find out that the whole reason the movie exists is because Voldemort wants the "Prophecy", that shiny ball thingy Harry's holding in the goddamn movie posters, which wasn't even hinted at in the beginning of this movie! And now they expect us to care about this plot point with 15 minutes left till the ending?

Not only that, but Sirius' death was done so cheaply it literally looked like it was adlibbed. Seriously. I don't know how much you guys are paying J.K. Rowling to keep telling us "this movie about my book is great!" but you better stop.

ACTING: (5/10)
That woman portraying crazy bitch Dolores Umbridge almost stole the show. She was absolutely despicable, and therefore absolutely perfect for the role.

But what stole the show for me was Evanna Lynch, the girl who played ditzy Luna Lovegood. She was absolutely adorable with her faux-innocence and inner intelligence. My favorite character so far.

Better thank Evanna, guys. She saved you from the failing grade.

CINEMATOGRAPHY: (3/10)
Apparently the writers thought if they give me enough subliminal "flashes" of the Orb of Prophecy during Harry's nightmare scenes, I'd realize that it's what Voldemort's been looking all this time and that it's important in the movie's climax. Wrong.

FUN FACTOR: (7/10)
The only good parts of the movie were in the last 15 minutes. The showdown between the escaped Azkaban prisoners and the Order of the Phoenix was badass. Nothing like two massively powered people duking it out with all they've got. The showdown between Dumbledore and Voldemort was also kick ass. Needless to say nobody would want to mess with ol' man Dumbledore after this!

OVERALL: (4/10)
What could have been another stellar Harry Potter movie was now a loosely plotted disaster. The writers kept sticking in characters into the plot, expecting you'd know why coz, like, the whole world has read Harry Potter right?

Wrong again.

The Harry Potter franchise, along with it's cast, is showing its age in this movie. And that's terrible.
