Ohh, I am a happy panda. Little things shall not get me down. For there are dyke nuggets to be found, and wrestling to be done, and someone shall end up with a crown (?!).

... Wtf, that wasn't what I came here to write.

The other night, I watched a movie called Hide and Seek. Some of you may know it. Robert Deniro, Dakota Fanning, Famke Janssen... it's a Stephen King story. It was entertaining and I thoroughly enjoyed it, but I couldn't help but feel like it was a puzzle that had been completed by sticking random pieces into holes that almost fit them but didn't quite get there.

I decided I wanted Mum to watch it, so we got it from the library and sat down with Dad. Then afterwards, Dad insisted on watching the alternate endings. Which... to be totally honest, the last two were easily way better than the kind of unrealistic ending in the actual film. I found out later that one of them did get used in the international version of the film, which would have made it a far better film just in itself.

But we also watched the deleted scenes. And somewhere in the middle of them, I kind of stopped and went, "huh?" since... pretty much every scene that got cut out (director cited "too repetitive" as an excuse?!) would have made the film flow so much better, and would have made it AWESOME instead of simply good. Some of them actually EXPLAINED things in the film that just didn't make much sense without them, or were otherwise rushed/vague so you really stopped to go, "huh? how did that happen?"

Damn arrogant directors. Seriously. The film suddenly made so much more sense after watching those. But it made me think of something.

Fandom people, do you take deleted scenes/extras to be canon or not?


On another note, I am cracking up and we are all insane. I EDITED IT THE ONLY WAY I COULD THINK TO IN ORDER FOR IT TO MAKE SENSE, BUT IT'S OOC.

NOISY: SO CHISA AND HAKS HAVE TO BE IN THEIR APARTMENT AND NOISY WAS STALKING THEM ENOUGH TO KNOW IT IS TRUFAX K
Chisato: that won't be hard, cos chisa can't move.
NOISY: ... HE WILL HAVE TO COME DOWNSTAIRS.

Chirolyn: CHISA CAN HOBBLE TO THE DOOR
Chisato: Haku wouldn't let him get up.
NOISY: WHAT IF HIS CAR WAS ON FIRE
Chirolyn: ..not touching that.
Chisato: HAKU STILL WOULDN'T LET HIM GET UP.
