My Thoughts on The Giver Trailer

Last week I saw Transformers.  Right when you walked in the theater there was a poster for The Giver. Oh no! It is a Twilight wannabe. Maybe they're trying to draw teens who didn't grow up in the 90s. Yeah, that must be it.

 But then I saw the trailer…

Disappointment began. First off there is defiantly a larger romance between Jonas and Fiona than just Jonas' wet dream in the book. I could have lived with that, but then Rosemary, the receiver before Jonas is played by Taylor Swift. Noooo! Why would you do that to me? Rosemary would never sing a song about Romeo and Juliette living happily ever after or being 22. Lastly, I did not see any mention of Gabriel, who I've always felt is key, paramount to the story. He is the reason why Jonas leaves the community. It was the final nail in the coffin for me. A Childhood Classic was ruined in 2:34. Although don't take my word for it, decide for yourself, I'd love to hear what you think of this atrocity.

Femme Fatale Fridays: Rebecca

"A Femme Fatale, translating to "Deadly Woman" in french, is an alluring, seductive woman whose charms ensnare her lovers in bonds of irresistible desire. Often this leads them into compromising, dangerous, and deadly situations." ~ Wikipedia

What villainous ladies have you read of in literature?  Now's the time to give them a shout out.  Because let's face we love to route for the bad girl.  Expression of this could be in any form, hate or love mail, fan fic, quotes or a simple profile. The skies the limit. Just be sure to include what book the femme fatale comes from so we can check them out too.


 Rebecca, even though she has been dead a year her presence is everywhere.  Manderly oozes with Rebecca's power, still keeping the Mannor under a tight ship.  Mrs. de Winter was perfect, she could ride, sail, dressed to the nines and threw the most memorable parties. Rebecca intimidated the second Mrs. de Winter just because she was using her morning roo…

Femme Fatale Friday: Mary Tilford

Mary Tilford, a young pupil at the Wright Dobie Boarding School from 1961's"The Children's Hour"

Dear Mary,
The lie you have told regarding your teachers, Miss Karen Wright and myself Miss Martha Dobie is very far from the truth and have never acted on said assumed feelings towards one another.  Your lies, blackmail and manipulation to teachers, students and family will not further any chances and achievements  in life you may desire as they soon become transparent.    Mary, I hope that in the future you will have learned from your heinous mistake and become a better person.  Although, as I begin to tie my bit of rope I realize that you found the one lie that had an ounce of truth to it.  Please remember, th…

Femme Fatale Friday: Brioney Tallis

"A femme fatale, translating to "Deadly Woman" in french, is an alluring, seductive woman whose charms ensnare her lovers in bonds of irresistible desire.  Often this leads them into compromising, dangerous   and deadly situations." ~ Wikipeda

Briony Tallis saw something she shouldn't.  Briony likes to tell stories.  She also likes to tell tall tales.

Her conniving ways begin upon seeing her sister  in a fountain, soaked to the skin in nothing but her undergarments.  Supposedly only seen by the estate's gardener Robbie Turner. 

Later, Robbie writes two letters to Cecilia

Letter #1
"You'd be forgiven for thinking me mad - wandering into your house barefoot, or snapping your antique vase.  The truth is, I feel rather light-headed and foolish in your presence, Cee, and I don't think I can blame the heat.  Will you forgive me? Robbie  

Letter #2
"In my dreams, I kiss your cunt, your sweet wet cunt.  In my thoughts I make love to you all day long.&quo…

First, I must go into a little background of Manon, she first appears in Marcel Pagnol's Jean de Florette as a young girl.  Her father, Jean, inheritances some land with a spring on it.  His neighbors are not the welcoming type and plug up the stream with the thought process of him leaving and them buying out the land hence unplugging the water source.  Jean is determined to make a go at farming and getting water to his land.  Eventually, he is killed by a blow to the head while digging a well.  Their neighbors Cesar and Ugolin Soubeyran unstop the sacred spring unknowingly wittnessed by Manon, who then swears to get revenge.

Manon has become a young adult she learns that most of the village was aware of this act but bec…
