Cruel Intentions

Beeps Pick:  Cruel Intentions

Cruel Intentions [Blu-ray]

Why I chose this film:  OMG... can you say sexy?  I remember loving this movie.  When Apes told me that she had never seen it, I KNEW it would have to get into our rotation.

Beeps:  Why in god's name do I keep doing this to myself?  Prior to this viewing, I would have classified this as one of my top 10 all time movies.  Sadly, now it has been reduced to a better than average film.  The story has been told in other movies, Valmont and the even more famous Dangerous Liasons.  However, this movie puts a young, hip, and modern spin on the classic tale of incestuous love, and the corruption of innocence.  If you're a fan of other films that put modern spins on classic tales, this is definitely worthy of watching.  If you're looking for a lustful tale that will keep you interested for an hour and a half, I say go for it.  One thing I found interesting is for its rampant sexuality, there isn't any full nudity in this film, except maybe a bare ass.  3 1/2 stars.

Apes: Poor rich people with crazy sex drives messing up the lives of other rich people. Its hard to have sympathy or relate to these characters. Maybe I'm just in a bitchy mood, but overall I thought this movie was just good, but I didn't care about the characters. The movie was sort of a train wreck you can't help but watch because you want to know what happens. This movie is practically porn with no nudity. I wouldn't watch this movie again, but I'm glad I did so I can say I've had the experience. I give this film 3 stars.

Overall we give this film 3 1/2 stars.

  1. I love this movie. It starts off fun and cruel. A couple of kids who have way too much power in the small society that is this college. Playing god and wrecking peoples lives at will. Until it all comes crumbling down and turns into a revenge story. And revenge is soooo sweet!

    P.S. girls who are dumb and willing try whatever kind've turns me on lol
