This Is It, Jennifer's Body!

SCREW STUDY! My first paper is like on Monday and today, I've already wasted half a day in Queensbay watching these two movies, Michael Jackson's This Is It and Jennifer's Body. Piles of notes and books still remain covered in dust and I went for movies? Somebody slaps me! Figuratively! (OK, to compensate those two movies I watched, tonight will be the night I'm getting serious!)

Anyway, here's my two-cent worth of reviews for both the movies:

Michael Jackson's This Is It


To be honest, I'm not really a fan of MJ but I do love his songs and I felt that his passing was a great loss to the world. So, I thought, why not go for the movie as a tribute to his legendary career and also to see how his concert would have been if he was still alive. Furthermore, it'll be on cinema for just two weeks.

I was told that the tickets were selling like hot cakes and if you did not have any reservations or you did not buy the tickets earlier, chances are, you won't get to see it. Well, I have no idea how true is that but when I went there this morning without any reservations, I managed to get myself one and when I entered the cinema hall, it was quite empty. I think barely twenty were there and most of them, i believe, witnessed MJ growing up.

I haven't watch a concert movie before so I have no idea how a concert movie should be like but this one is great. From the start till the end, you could feel the passion of the staffs and crews, dancers and background singers, and MJ himself. The one to one interview with the dancers at the beginning of the movie were quite emotional, you could tell that they really want to be there, to be with MJ. Some even came from as far as Australia just for the audition. I really had goosebumps at that moment.

There are a lot of exclusive clips of what the concert gonna be. I especially like the Thriller section where they were recording scenes in 3-D for a clip to be aired in the concert. Michael really put a lot of times and energy to stage his comeback concert. He poured his heart and soul for it but sadly, he did not live long enough to perform it.

This movie is a must watch for the fans of Michael. It will be the only way for those who, unfortunately, won't get a chance to see him in a concert, to feel the atmosphere of his concert.

Jennifer's Body


Megan Fox's hotness has already been well established and certified with both Transformers movies and Jennifer's Body only serves to reaffirm her status as the screen siren. Other than Megan Fox, I don't really know what this movie is for and to make my point:


When my friend saw the scene above in the newspaper, he said he would died to be him, even if he was to die in the movie. I mean, as a horror movie, it simply not scary. I know it's not your standard kill-kill-slash-slash movie or the look-behind-you-there's-ghosts type of movie but still, have some blood, or more blood would be more accurate since there is blood in the movie.

So, the story. There's a band who, in order to be famous, made a deal with Satan and delivered a virgin in the form of Jennifer (Fox) as a sacrifice but instead of being dead, Jennifer was possessed by a demon who fed on people. Needy (Amanda Seyfield), Jennifer's nerdy best friend, found out about it and tried to stop it. Rather pointless, I must say. Pay attention to the dialogues 'cause there's lot of pop culture references in it and some you might laugh about it.

p/s I finally gotten myself a digital camera! With this baby, I can capture moments of my life in snapshots. DSLR is too freaking expensive so I resolve for a compact camera first. Slowly, slowly...and now I'm RM 1000 poorer!
