I heard this film was quite brutal, and I don't mind that, and of course, I'm eager to check out new Michael Fassbender fare.

It is indeed brutal, and people with weak stomachs probably shouldn't watch this. When it comes to movies, I have a pretty much cast iron constitution, but there were a couple of parts that were very, very difficult to watch.

The premise is that Steve (Fassy) takes his girlfriend, Jenny, out to Eden Lake for a romantic weekend and to pop the question. Trouble occurs when they are harassed by a gang of teenagers. As Steve tries to reason with them -- and act a bit macho to impress Jenny -- things go rapidly downhill as the teenagers proceed to terrorize them. They attack Steve and hunt Jenny, and what should have been a wondered getaway turns into a fight for survival.

Here be spoilers )

There are problems with the movie. There are times when suspension of disbelief is tried, and you think why didn't they (Steve and Jenny) just do this or not do that, and they would have got away. Some of the coincidences were a little contrived as well, but in all it's a very good thriller, mostly because of the realism. It leaves you with the feeling this could really happen. There's no monster, no supernatural enemy, just a bunch of kids who are, like too many kids today, total little thugs who get nothing but enjoyment from harassing people, and aren't controlled by their parents.

EDIT: I've added some screen caps )

First, my one and only post on the elections. I'm happy that Obama won. I voted for him, and this country does need change. Whether he can deliver that change remains to be seen, and the cynic that I am is taking a wait-and-see approach. I'm more happy that McCain/Palin didn't win, which is sad to vote for who you don't want rather than who you do.

It also almost seems fitting that after such an historic election, that today is Guy Fawkes' Day.

So to celebrate my homeland's remembrance of that day...A Fassy as Guy Picspam! )

SAME WARNING!! NOT DIALUP FRIENDLY IN THE LEAST!! )

There's one thing I've discovered about Fassy, and that I've become especially taken with his hands...I just love long, slender fingers on a man.

So, some finger porn )

Okay, so I haven't been around much today because Anne Bishop's newest novel of the Black Jewels series came yesterday...and yes, [livejournal.com profile] ladyofbrileith I've finished it already! *g* I was going to be good and wait until I'd done with the book I'm already reading, but I cracked it open...and there's Daemon. I couldn't help it!

The book is TONS of squee! Daemon was beautiful as always. As was Lucivar. And Saetan. Surreal was wonderful. And Jaenelle wasn't as annoying as in the other books. There's plenty of humour...and snark. And an enjoyable plot...not terribly intricate, but good...and I read these books for the characters anyhow.


Now for the picspam. Yes, I'm on a Michael Fassbender kick, and I've been capping 300 and Hex and thought I'd share some of Stelios and Azazeal (next post).

WARNING!!! NOT DIALUP FRIENDLY!! NOT IN THE SLIGHTEST!!! )
