(I saw the Director's cut first, and fell in love with it. I decided to watch the original theatrical release out of curiosity, and was truly horrified at what I saw. Amazing how a bit of alteration can create what effectively feels like a completely different film.)

Thelma and Louise Ratatouille Guess what movies happen to be on TV right now?

I believe it originated from @CrackFox ; though I'm not sure
@garrison-san Rats are kawaii, I love rodents ：）
Awwwwwwww <3 They are just too adorable.
Happy Birthday, Hannibal and Murdock! If you ever learn how to read, I would like to let you know the two of you look extremely cute!
They are so cute! :3
So cute! I used to own two rats, Ben and Jerry. They're such friendly animals :3
You nibble to your heart's content, little buddy.
I'm sure they're grateful for having a mommy like you.
They're so adorable. :3
Daaaawww, so cute!
@Iteru: I have great difficulty writing "arsehole". I guess I just prefer the softer spelling. I'm sorry to let the side down. :(
@Paperhorse: I do think you make a very good point - it's for precisely that reason that The Finishing Line was such a controversial film in its day (it incited much debate between those who felt that it was necessary to "scare 'em straight", and those who felt that deliberately traumatising children was a step too far). As I say, as a result of these little sessions I wound up becoming totally afraid of anything and everything to do with trains, which probably wasn't quite the intended effect. Mind you, it hasn't exactly changed much - I'm an adult now, and I have an ever-expanding collection of psychological scars from being exposed to countless PIFs about speeding and drink driving, for which I doubt that I'm even the target audience (for one thing, I'm not a driver).
@Karamazov: If you think this is bad, just wait until I get round to Apaches. :p
What a nice movie. Definitely something I'd be showing to children.
The closest we had was a group of twenty-something Canadians who came in to lecture us about the joys of chastity while in Sixth Form (interesting, but they completely lost me when they said that masturbation was “selfish”).
Wow, that video sounds kinda scary. The suspense seems really terrifying as you watch it since you know what the horrible outcome is going to be.
I don't really approve of showing videos like this in classrooms, because I feel like they sometimes have a backlash. All the kids will either be scared, or some of them will just laugh throughout the entire thing to try and ease the uncomfortableness of it. Either way, it doesn't really work because a) you're either traumatized or b) you laugh it off and don't listen (and the kids that laugh it off are the ones that really needed to pay attention in the first place)
Where is your Britishness?!
m-m-mu-mum-mumm-mummy! waah! *sob*sob*
Thank you all.^^
@Karamazov I think it's particularly sad that his two greatest passions in life were essentially killed in one go. Not only can he no longer play football, but I somehow doubt that he's going to be very keen on trains from then on, do you? :p Originally Posted by Karamazov Cilan?! Yes, I did that on purpose.^^
@Insanish Danish Glad to hear that I wasn't the only one! As I say, Robbie is relatively mild on the trauma factor, though the next two films I'm planning to review are a lot more grim...
@Winterdaze I don't think those things ever made it to my school, but my interest is certainly piqued. What sort of issues did they deal with?
I give this blog entry a four star Charley rating!
It never occurred to me to look up old PIFs, or that such films would have fanbases.
Did you ever get those travelling public information puppet shows? Those tended to err on the creepy side o_o
