Movies That Surprised me

Lately my days have been packed with meetings and paperwork so to unwind I've been renting movies On-Demand. Since I've already seen so many movies I'm now watching movies that I had no intention of ever seeing because there is nothing else left.

Two movies that I really didn't intend to enjoy were Surrogates and Jennifer's Body. Not only did I not hate these movies but instead I LOVED these movies. They were super fun, had great VFXs and entertained me from start to finish.

The old saying is true, don't judge a book by its cover. Or don't assume Megan Fox sucks in every movie she's in.

I liked this review of Jennifer's Body. It does sound like it's more than it is advertised as. I haven't seen it yet, don' know i I will, it's not my favorite genre.

I was surprised by "Jennifer's Body" as well. Reviewed it on my blog when it first came out and thought it was "About As Supple As Expected..."

Check it out if you get a chance.

Weird timing because I JUST watched Jennifer's Body yesterday and LOVED IT! I'm too wimpy to love the horror genre, but the great banter between Needy & Jennifer made it so fun to watch. My fav aspect though was the whole "KICKER" thing. HI-fuckin-larious!
Also watched an unexpectedly good movie called The Brothers Bloom (can you tell yesterday was "movie day" in my household?). I'd never even heard of it before, but it actually turned out to be a really fun movie.
