Betrayed at 17: At Least One of the Girls Was Hot



I love Lifetime movies, and there is no reason why you shouldn’t. Well, that was the flimsiest lie of the century. I would alter the statement to say that I sometimes watch Lifetime movies, and they are often rubbish.

Most recently: “Betrayed at 17.”

I will include spoilers:
It’s a rather interesting idea about a girl that has her life turned upside down as a guy secretly films them having sex, and then, the video is stolen by a vengeful skank and spread across the internet. Then, in shock the defiled girl runs out of a house screaming and gets hit by a car!
No silliness intended.

I am not an expert on screenwriting, direction, or cinematography, but I will tell you that killing off the hottest girl in the film after only 15 minutes was not a good idea.

This film is not really a mystery, instead it follows a variety of people trying to track the identity of the vengeful skank. After she is trapped in the corner, the vengeful skank murders her way out, and she continues falling into a deeper pit.

The skank


No, she does not get away with it. That is no surprise, and no, she doesn’t kill herself to get out of it. No, there is no real uplifting moment at the end. It’s just two people died because a vengeful skank got her panties in a knot.

The worst part was, this is the exact same model of another movie that ran on Lifetime, “Accused at 17,” starring Nicole Gale Anderson.


Vengeful Skank blames a crime on someone else : Vengeful Skank murders a friend to cover it up : Vengeful Skank cries at the end and goes to jail.

Just flip flop some character names and the costuming, and it’s the same ideas.

At least “Accused at 17” had a strong ending.

QATFYG:
Did you ever watch “Drop Dead Diva?”

  2. Are you brain dead?! The best actress in the movie was Katie Gill who played the villain. Obviously she was good or you wouldn't have called her a "skank". Who voted you a critic anyway? What films have you ever been in loser?

3 New Lana Songs Come Out From Upcoming Album "Blue Banisters"

Not even that far off from "Chemtrails Over The Country Club" being released this past March, Lana Del Rey dropped three new singles off her upcoming project, "Blue Banisters." They include the title track, "Text Book," and "Wildflower Wildfire." All three songs seem to merge the worlds of "COCC" with "Norman Fucking Rockwell," specifically Lana's mouthful of a track "Hope is a Dangerous Thing for a Woman Like Me To Have But I Have It." They also seem uncharacteristically more confessional than most of Lana's catalog to date, specifically "Wildflower Wildfire," which alludes to a conflict with her mother. She even starts the track with "Here's the deal," readying to show more of her backstory than she ever has in her decade-plus-long career. The three songs are gorgeous - especially "Text Book," which has a haunting quality to it (she mentions "Black Lives Matter" i

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

You Need to Hear This: Concrete Castles

I first heard of First to Eleven a few years ago thanks to the powers of social media. They are a talented young band straight out of my hometown (Erie, PA). Since I've first heard of them, First To Eleven - which primarily were a social media-based cover band - has revealed an original music incarnation, Concrete Castles.  No matter if they're covering songs or releasing their own music, one thing is evident: Concrete Castles is MASSIVELY talented. Anchored by Audra Miller's powerhouse vocals that are vaguely reminiscent of Hayley Williams, Concrete Castles demand your attention. Although they can fall in that sort of amorphous "indie pop" umbrella, I don't think their sound would be amiss on mainstream radio - top 40 or alternative.  "Wish I Missed U" - their debut album - came out earlier this September, and it's an enjoyable, invigorating listen that would probably make those who were raised on emo or fans of CHVRCHES feel at home. Hell, Anth
