Jennifer's Body

I went into the cinema not expecting much. After all its a horror movie. About a possessed cheerleader. And got Megan Fox in it.

But then it was surprisingly good. Good is kinda lukewarm description, yes? Then cross that. It was kinda great and almost awesome.

  • The dialogue was smart, not cliche and the lines are good.
  • Good script. It turned a usual horror movie to a quirky movie that have its scare moments.
  • Some of the scenes are heartbreaking and almost, almost bring tears to my eyes. You know how death scene in a horror movie always make you roll your eyes. But this not it.
  • Good choice of actors and actresses especially Amanda Seyfried. I have always like her since Veronica Mars.
  • Clever witty jokes. Doesn't try too hard nor is it too silly.
  • Adam Brody is deliciously evil and hilarious as an indie band member trying to make it. God, I missed Adam Brody and Rachel Bilson.
  • Oh and Megan Fox is also pretty good, you know, aside from the 'sexy' obvious. She clearly enjoyed doing this movie and it shows.
  • Love the ending credits roll.
  • And I especially love the scene where Needy make a run through the woods in her 80s prom dress. It was beautifully shot. The shots of pink satin and legs in between trees is really lovely and reminiscing of a late 80s/early 90s music video. Really awesome.
  • And yeah, I would like to see it again.
  • Oh and the soundtrack are pretty good. I am gonna find it. Especially the main song of the movie Through the Trees.
That's about it. Oh and the bad? Well, I really like this movie. So I do not want to think of the bad just yet. And its kinda hard to think of the bad, because it just feel so good.

But Julia Stiles always picked some horrible projects.

It is a bit chick flick as the main villain is girl and heroine is a girl too. Maybe why I like it. But its still pretty good.

Hehe. Lagu die best kan, terbayang-bayang Needy.
