[review] Movie: Jennifer’s Body

17 Jun

I rather choose to watch thriller movie about bloods and massacres or something like these than to watch ghosts and supranaturals. Freddy & Jason? Count me in.

I used to read synopsises or reviews about movies first then I watched the movies. So I used to have some expectations or something in mind when I watched them, never clueless about the movies. That means less surprises and less bad movies to watch.

But I didn’t do the habit recently. I just read the title, saw the poster, knew who the casts are, that were enough for me to decide whether to watch the movie or not. Like this movie, Jennifer’s Body.

The casts are Megan Fox, Amanda Seyfried and Adam Brody, and others who I didn’t knew of. DVD cover shows bloods come out from Fox’ body, she wears cheerleader custome, with dark-mysterious jungle as the background. It definitely won’t be any kind of ghost movie, right?

And it isn’t. It tells us about 2 young teenagers’ life after watching a not-yet-famous band performance in a bar at their town. Their life is changing, into-unpredictable-yet-scarry-one, and the band is also changing, to become famous, real famous, somehow.

To be noted, don’t expect something from Fox’ acts, she wasn’t acting, just bitching around like she did in How to Lose Friends & Alienate People movie. Seyfried acts was something, I think. At least, she did the best she could do in this movie, her better acts than in Mamma Mia! or Dear John movie. And Adam Brody.. hmm. He got this weird character yet I also didn’t move by his acts.

And for you who haven’t watch this movie, you have to. This movie teaches us about friendship, whether our BFF is really a best friend or not, how friendship could affect us, the meaning of friendship, and especially what should we do when our bestfriend wants to kill our boyfriend.

Lesson learned:
(for girls)
Don’t easily admit our virginity to any strangers, especially if we’re not virgins anymore, if we don’t want to ended up sharing our body with devil.
(for boys
) Don’t easily believe about any girls’ virginity, especially if you never met this girl before, if you don’t want to ended up beaten by the devil.

    bagus ga nad jadinya ceritanya? gue penasaran, cover dan sinopsis nya tampak kurang menjanjikan. tapi script writer nya, script writer Juno. And I do love Juno. So, so, bagus ga?

      ceritanya sih biasa aja na.. tapi gw suka endingnya hehe, itu best part nya menurut gw
      di rotten tomatoes kalo gw cek ga begitu bagus ratingnya. tapi kalo lo pengen liat aktingnya Seyfried lain dari yang lain, ato ngefans ama Fox, ato udah kangen ama Brody.. tonton aja ๐Ÿ™‚

        oke, gue ga ngefans sama fox, seyfried, ataupun brody, tapi gue suka sama scriptwriternya Juno *menang best screenplay oscar gituuu* jadi akan gue tonton. thanks nad.

    Ahahay… whether this is a coincidence or not I don’t know but I have my own review of this movie too in my blog. But unfortunately I have a different opinion considering the quality (the story of course) of this movie. And yes, Megan Fox was the main reason for me to watch this. For me, sorry to say.. It was disappointing..though I saw the whole scene without any cuts. Cheers..

      i’ve commented your post ๐Ÿ™‚

      i think i also watched without any cuts gin. i watched it on dvd..
      kind of cheesy.. but maybe those scenes are the writer’s thingy remembering his plot on Juno haha..

      ordinary plot. ordinary acts by Fox but not by Seyfried. not bad ending

    Udah nonton.
    Emang ceritanya biasa aja, tapi yang bikin luar biasa pas si Fox renang di sungai deket hutan. akakakak ๐Ÿ˜€

    Ane suka kata2 “To be noted, donโ€™t expect something from Foxโ€™ acts, she wasnโ€™t acting, just bitching around”. Mantap

    • nadiafriza June 28, 2010 at 7:20 pm #
