Re: Jennifer's Body???

Pretty young girls, one determined to defeat the forces of darkness, a bounty of snappy one liners, fairly actiony, snappy horror, and the underlying angst of being in high school.

That about covers it.

Speaking of ripping off Buffy, you can't get 'more Buffy' than adding "y" to a word in order to turn it into an adjective.

Re: Jennifer's Body???

I, for one, am glad to see Megan Fox getting out from under Michael Bay's thumb and taking on hard-hitting roles like this that only an actress of her superior poise and talent could tackle. I suspect she'll be the Katherine Hepburn or Meryl Streep of her generation.

I voted neither. This movie looks awful, and I already saw the only two parts worth seeing online last year.

Wow, the Megan Fox hate in here is palpable. Looks cheesy, but she's hot and I like horror flicks, so I'll go see it some afternoon. In the poll, at the moment, I appear to be the only one. Oh well, theatre all to myself.

I think the writer, Diablo Cody, has a very unique and potentially entertaining style of writing (if sometimes a little too cutesy and irritatingly trying too hard to be 'quirky') and based on how much I enjoyed it in "Juno" (aside from some excessive 'quirk-age'), I'm interested in this movie.
Agreed, I'd see it just to see Cody's writing.

So Buffy invented that?

Hey, who are those OLD GUYS singing Britney Spears' "Satisfaction"? They're totally ruining it!

'Buffy' honed it, and exemplified it.

Look, if you like it, that's fine. There's a lot of stuff I watch I bet you'd go over. It's no biggy.

Re: Jennifer's Body???

Jennifer's Body doesn't interest me and I'm not going to see it unless I get a free e-ticket or something. I just take issue to people saying something ripped off something else when that something else isn't original either. It's not nearly as bad as people saying John Woo's style is a ripoff of The Matrix, but I do see it along the lines of people saying Wipeout is a ripoff of MXC.

Re: Jennifer's Body???

Why can't they get Megan Fox to do a high quality movie kinda like Anne Hathaway got with Devil Wears Prada. I like her, but the movie selection is awful.

Probably for two reasons:

One, her tats would mean that she has to have extensive makeup, CG-retouching or wardrobe to cover them up, unless that tats fit her character. I'm guessing a tat of Madonna on the arm and the Decleration of Independence scrawled on your right shoulder blade (I know it's not the DoI) isn't going to suit a lot of characters.

Two, she can't act worth a shit.

Your example of a high quality Anne Hathaway movie is "Devil Wears Prada"? I don't see how that's a huge step up from junk like "The Princess Diaries" or "Bride Wars". A better choice would be "Rachel Getting Married" or even "Brokeback Mountain" (I have problems with that movie, but I can't deny it's way more mature and intelligent than the majority of the other movies she's done).

I've not seen Rachel getting Married yet. I used Devil wears Prada because it was opposite Maryl Streep and while they all suck, the oscars did recognize that movie. At the time I thought it was a good example.

Just looked up IMDB and Hathaway was in Brokeback. Imagine that.

Perhaps, but her having tattoos depends ont he director's "vision" for the character and the types, places and styles of tattoos she has may not fit very many characters. (The madonna tattoo and the lettering on her right shoulder stick out in my mind the most.)

If you're a director of a movie and you've a choice between equaly talented actresses, both are of the same attractivness and using one of them means no wardrobe restrictions or special makeup and one means having to have her always in long sleeves, no exposed back, or having to use heavy make-up/CGI who are you going to choose?

I might wait for the DVD.
That lake scene was filmed north of Vancouver, BC. in the Capalano(sp) lake.
