Thus contained in this post is a sort-of-review of the film 'Live!', prompted by the way Jeffery Dean Morgan broke my heart in it. If your interested you can find it after the cut. Beware, it contains spoilers.

Greetings and Salutations my loyal (not) fans (which number a max of three). Any of you seen the movie 'Live!'. I have. I watched it last night as a matter of fact. Wasn't paying too much attention either unitl Jeffery Dean Morgan appeared on screen. Then I was suddenly tearing up from his character's (named Rick) tragic story (and the fact that he was crying as well) and found myself up until midnight wanting to see how the movie turned out.

Why did I stay up? Simple. I was staying up to see if Rick was going to lose the game of Russian Roulette. Yup, you heard me. If you haven't seen 'Live!' it's a film about a new reality show where there are six contestants, one revolver, five dummy cartridges and one silver bullet. During the show, after the cylinder is randomly turned, the six will fire the gun one by one pointed at their head, without intermediate extra turning of the cylinder, until one is killed.The five 'winners' get five million dollars each, while the loser's family gets zip, nada, nothing.

Oh, did I mention how disgustingly popular the show was with the (hopefully bloody fictional) audience of America?

You want suspense try watching a favourite actor whose character breaks your heart play Russian Roulette. Then place him in the final two with the live round still in the chamber. I was sitting on the couch holding a pillow and blinking back tears. The other contestant was randomly chosen to go next and I added biting my tongue to my 'freak out' list. Gun is raised, he blows a kiss to his girlfriend in the audience, and bang, blows a bullet through his head. Crowd goes silent, the girlfriend is beside herself and, what happens? The audience starts cheering and clapping. Rick (JDM's character) breaks down and is crying then runs to his wife in the audience.

The film ends with the creator of the show getting gunned down minutes later and you find out the show is so popular it becomes a yearly special.

This 'film' both broke my heart and made me feel nauseous. The way these characters reacted to death is absolutely sickening and really does make you wonder what the hell is wrong with the human race. Watch it if you want, if you haven't already, but be warned that Rick will probably break your heart and you will (hopefully) be disgusted with the 'reality show'.

Rant over,

And I didn't want to read this because I don't want spoilers on the movie.

It so is. And if CW won't show it, we'll just have to settle with the obvious relationship between Jensen, Misha and Jared.
Take that CW!

OMG! I love your icon!!!
