i gave this movie 1 out of 10 stars because there wasn't an option for 0 stars.

this film is basically... no wait... literally about two girls having fun pretending to be reporters or something. there are plenty of girl moments to be had here. they obviously just wanted to have fun. what was really interesting was the way none of their conversations were relevant. they spent a lot of time bitching at each other about the camera. it was pivotal at times, that camera. these girls look HOT when they smear bits of soot and fake blood on themselves. i was totally jelous of the white guy that was hanging with them, until he died inexplicably.

a bunch of stuff doesn't happen, and then i think they died. i'm not sure. i'm not sure about anything anymore. there's a little piece of me that now just wants to move to tokyo and have fun with girls.

feces for the mind.
