This post is very pic heavy so if you have a slow internet connection I would like to remind you that it is the year 2013 and ask why. Also, some pics are probably NSFW. Since the movie is an hour and a half, I will be doing this in three easily digestible, thirty minute sections.
This movie was pretty much what I expected it would be, only a little worse. The acting wasn’t too bad but the story was all over the place. It’s surprising since so much of the real story was already out there, there was really no need for stupid inconsistencies or changing minor details. I get that they might have thought they were making it more entertaining for TV but the stuff they changed was just so stupid. It seemed as though 60% was made up and 40% actually happened. They should have focused more on the premeditation and the court scenes. What ended up happening was that the court scene was tacked on at the end with flashback scenes of her premeditation which wouldn’t make any sense for someone who wasn’t already familiar with every aspect of the case. I was also disappointed that Tania Raymonde couldn’t get her buddy and costar from Lost, John Locke, to play in the movie as himself.
The movie opens with very soft, sun soaked lighting and “artistic” shots of Jodi being taken by Travis. Since she has brown hair, we are to assume this is the day of.
Let’s have a contest to see who can watch this the longest without cringing. I made it to about the thirty second mark:
I am going to shame-watch the hell out of this thing. I am not particularly proud of that fact; just putting it out there. A bunch of stills have been leaked online and I would like to analyze some of them.
Here’s Jodi and Travis, hanging out in a laundry room of some sort. Pretty good so far.
In a bold move, jury foreman John Locke said in an interview this week that he was one of the four jury members who voted against the death penalty. Shocking, right? I will admit though; it takes balls to make a statement like this especially since all the hate he has supposedly received thus far. Of course, this could just be another one of his ploys to get in Jodi’s pants. Maybe he is one step closer to reaching out to her?
