You know, that’s REALLY starting to get to be a habit.
You know …
Grabbing a screen shot of some description, just to show you I ’ve had Bruce hooked up to my TV set, to watch a movie.
The really weird bit … ?
Was that 2009 film, Jennifer’s Body, was one I’d actually taped from Channel’s film channel, last Saturday night: and transferred over to Bruce — my Mac Mini — to watch later.
And that an extraneous pair of feet seem to have wondered in from somewhere …
Well, of course a pair of feet wondered in: I’m actually sort of thankful that my chair’s comfy enough — and big enough — for me to really bleb out, should I so choose.
I usually do, if I think I have something to watch.
Thankfully, I did, last night.
The film in question being the one I’d taped, last Saturday: the anarchic 2009 horror comedy, Jennifer’s Body.
Told as an extended flashback, Jennifer’s Body sees Amanda Seyfried and Megan Fox as Needy and Jennifer, a pair of schoolgirl friends who manage to sneak off to a local bar, to catch a band that’s playing there.
When the bar,burns down, mid-gig, they manage to get separated: Jennifer being effectively kidnapped by the band, whilst Needy is left to struggle home on her own.
It’s not until Jennifer manages to get back to Needy’s — looking like a serious wreck, and vomiting black spiny goo all over the kitchen floor — that Needy realises the band weren’t quite what they seems.
And that the mysterious deaths — of a local exchange student, the school quarterback and a local emo — that Jennifer isn’t as unscarred as she claims to be …
Jennifer’s Body: good, bad or indifferent … ?
Well, just to avoid answering that one, I’d say “Fun,” actually.
Which is a fairly accurate comment.
Oh, I’m sure those of us looking for flaws will find dozens. But Jennifer’s Body is about people getting hideously killed and eaten by Megan Fox*.
It’s not necessarily this year’s big Art House DVD release!
Putting it bluntly, if you liked Heathers, then Jennifer’s Body will be right up your street.
I loved Heathers, myself …
* Yeah, I had to think for a minute, there: writing “getting eaten by Megan Fox” would’ve got me trouble …
