Jennifer's Body (Kusama 2009)

'Jennifer's Body' was fantastic! I haven't watched the same movie three times in theaters in one week since, "The Descent". It's not scary, it's just a brilliant script (no surprise) from Diablo Cody, and brilliantly performed by Megan Fox and Amanda Seyfried. I expected a simple skin piece given the Megan Fox hype, but she was really funny, and needs to be taken seriously. Visually glorious panoramic shots coupled with a spicy, witty take on pop culture with a strong feminist message. I didn't forget you gore-hounds, either- there's plenty of that here, too. Well done to everyone involved on this project. I look forward to the director's cut and devouring the commentary by Diablo Cody and cast.
