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?

"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.

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:
