I don't know. I'm fascinated and confused and grossed out and not really sure what I think about any of this. I feel like it's trying to be super philosophical, but I don't get it.
Jennifer’s Body had the chance to be a fun horror movie that said interesting things about teenage girls and their relationships to each other and their bodies, but it didn’t quite get there. Instead it falls back on clichés and stereotypes — the cheerleader, who is insecure, hot, and backstabbing, and the geeky, needy friend (who is actually named Needy, which annoys me to no end).
There were moments in this that were kind of cool.
• The scene when…
A beautiful bio pick with an astounding performance from Eddie Redmayne. The film doesn't go much into the specifics of his scientific theories, opting instead to show the story of the man and his personal struggles. His relationship with his wife is respectfully portrayed and shows what amazing people they both are.
Style-wise, I could have done without the candy colored filters, since the cinematography was beautiful on its own. But that's a small quibble.
Such a wonderful movie.
