Excerpt: Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment have released the horror movie "Jennifer's Body" onto Blu-ray in the United Kingdom, in the original aspect ratio of 1.85:1. The transfer is 1080p and uses an AVC MPEG-4 codec. As far as the transfer goes, it's almost reference quality. One of the biggest problems I have found with films that feature many deep blacks, is that we often get a lot of a crushing.
Excerpt: Jennifer (Megan Fox) is the most popular girl in school, a beautiful vixen who loves to have fun. Needy (Amanda Seyfried) is quiet and introverted, not the kind of girl who stands out. The two seem like polar opposites, but they’ve been friends since childhood and the bond is undeniable. Jennifer is the alpha however, as Needy does whatever Jennifer wants. When the two travel to a rock show, Needy is suspicious of the band, but Jennifer wants to meet the lead singer.
Summary: Not nasty enough to appease the sex and violence crowd and not quite subversive enough to really tread any new ground, Jennifer’s Body has got some obvious flaws. That said, it’s entertaining enough when you take into account that it’s playing safely within the confines of a major studio release and that despite its rating is catering to a teen demographic.
Excerpt: "Hell is a teenage girl," viewers are warned in their introduction to Jennifer's Body , a funny, brainy, mildly flawed effort that should at least temporarily put to rest the debate over whether Megan Fox is more than just a pretty face. Her performance is indeed high among the reasons to see the film, as are those of Amanda Seyfried and Johnny Simmons and the bleaker-than-ever genre conflations of sex, youth and death.
Excerpt: Sexy temptress Megan Fox is hotter than hell as Jennifer, a gorgeous, seductive cheerleader who takes evil to a whole new level after she's possessed by a sinister demon. Steamy action and gore galore ensue as the male student body succumbs to Jennifer's insatiable appetite for human flesh. Now it's up to her best friend (Amanda Seyfried) to stop Jennifer's reign of terror before it's too late.
Excerpt: The Film Blood, entrails, indie rock and a lesbian lip lock; what more could you want? Hopefully nothing, since Jennifer's Body offers little else -- oh except 102 minutes of getting to stare at... well, Jennifer's body. Jennifer (Megan Fox) is the super-hot high-school chick that every guy wants -- and apparently, some get.
Conclusion: I am sure by now you have grown tired of me singing nothing but praise for Jennifer’s Body . Ordinarily, on a movie such as this one that is split equally amongst critics, I would be obligated to give this one a rating as a rental. However, due to my over poignant fondness of this film, the Blu-ray’s sonic audio surround track and an equally impressive video transfer, I am going to whole-heartedly recommend a purchase of this title.
Excerpt: Maybe the producers or the studio should have called this Megan Fox’s Body . Not only would that have fit the cheeky style and tone of the film, maybe audiences would have grasped what Jennifer’s Body was trying to do. There is no question this movie would have been wasteful without Megan Fox. The entire point is that she plays a character who succeeds based on looks alone, undoubtedly the reason she is currently a star in Hollywood.
Conclusion: You know what? Screw the bad reviews and ignore the box office - 'Jennifer's Body' is a whip smart little horror comedy that I absolutely adored. Blood and bitchiness are mixed liberally, to absolutely endearing effect. Diablo Cody has finally won me over. The 'J-Bod' disc sports sublime audio and video and a nice host of special features (most of them Blu-ray exclusives).
