Re: Jennifer's Body

I think it's safe to say that the words Megan Fox and Oscar award winner won't ever be mention in the same sentence.



Except for this one.

Re: Jennifer's Body

^ and ^^ = Great!!!

I knew the movie looked terrible, and when it was only rated 14A here, I kinda figured there'd be little but implied/shadows of nudity- people go to horror films for that and the gore and cheesy scary-ness, and I was sure that that movie would tank.

And I agree that Fox is burning her bridges... needs a handler, and some tact. Even if a director is terrible... don't call him Hitler when he's linked to huge producers and directors and is very successful!!

Megan Fox has lesbian affair with Oscar-winner Charlize Theron.

Ok 3rd times the charm..the words Megan Fox and Oscar award winner won't ever be mention in the same sentence in relationship to each other in the meaning of her winning the award.

Megan Fox stock just dropped way down with this movie, seems like her eye candy only goes good with big robots.

Re: Jennifer's Body

Box Office Mojo on its wretched performance (still under 7m):
Jennifer's Body's advertising campaign exacerbated the situation by pinning its hopes almost entirely on Megan Fox, an actress who was a small cog in the Transformers machine, at the expense of story or more relatable elements. Ads could have appealed more to females, who have been known to drive horror business, through the picture's Mean Girls themes or the character played by Amanda Seyfried, who was minimized. What's more, if Megan Fox is such a fantasy for males, how attractive is it to them to see her as a man-eating demon? Besides, they can get their fix from pictures on the Internet.
(My emphasis.)

Indeed. It might well have done better if it aggressively went after girls, and why not? It's clearly a female-empowerment fable. That poster isn't fooling anyone... especially not with "from the writer of Juno" at the top.

I love Ebert, but he goes a little nuts sometimes, as when he called this "Twilight for boys". Uh, Rog, there already is a "Twilight for boys". It's called The Lord of the Rings.

Re: Jennifer's Body

I haven't seen the movie yet, but plan to around Jan when it hits DVD. No way I pay even matinee for this let alone $9.75. It will be worth it via Netflix for about $2 give or take that month.

Regarding the ad campaign I don't know why they waited till the day before to release these pics. Couldn't have hurt, I like them better than the poster, even though her on that desk is a keeper.

Re: Jennifer's Body

I don't know, anyone going based on those pictures might be pretty pissed off. I don't recall her wearing that outfit at any point in the movie.

Their biggest mistake was marketing this towards guys. I'm sure plenty of teenaged girls would enjoy it, and it may become something of a cult hit for them on DVD. They should have shown more scenes about the storyline, instead of all of the shots of Megan Fox unzipping her hoodie, etc.

There were even points in the movie itself where it felt like someone was mucking with it from a marketing perspective to get the guys to see it. The much-touted kissing scene is a little pointless and lingers too long. I kind of have a hard time believing that Diablo Cody wrote it into the film like that, in the context of the rest of the movie. They might as well have flashed "THIS IS FOR THE FELLAS!" during that part.

As usual, Cody's dialogue bounced back and forth between being funny and annoying.

Diablo Cody's cutesy, sometimes nonsensical dialogue (I was reminded of "honest to blog" while reading a review of this film recently) can be grating. Other elements annoyed me as well. Anti-abortion protester as cutesy (oh, boy, watch me overuse that word here) and loveable? Planned Parenthood volunteer as multi-pierced, tattoo-ladden distributor of kinky condoms? Juno gets pregnant and the most her parental figures can manage is surprise that Michael Cera's character had it in him? And of course the middle-aged man with an interest in Dario Argento films turns out to be a total creeper. I'm no doubt exaggerating some points, but I haven't had the "pleasure" of a second viewing, so I hope you'll forgive me. What a bizarre and vomit-inducing universe.
