30 Day Film Challenge: Day 7

A Film That Reminds You of Your Past

Before I was this fabulously witty 20-something female whose thoughts so many of you enjoy reading day after day, I was just your typical quiet, kind of nerdy, very moody teenage girl. Back in the early aughts I was  just so over it all, passively reading The New Yorker, knitting, and constantly rolling my eyes at the buffoons that filled my daily life. Several movies remind me of this glorious stage of my life, whether because I watched them all or the time or because I relate to some characters. Especially the ones with supernatural beings. Here they are.

Sixteen Candles (1984)

Clueless (1994)

10 Things I Hate About You (1999)

Ginger Snaps (2000)

Ghost World (2001)

Mean Girls (2004)

The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants (2005)

Trailer Fix: Jennifer’s Body

The trailer for Jennifer’s Body, which stars Transformers‘ Megan Fox and Mamma Mia‘s Amanda Seyfried, has been released. While I was initially skeptical of a movie starring Megan Fox (I mean, can you blame me?), the trailer has convinced me that I will absolutely love Jennifer’s Body.

For starters, Jennifer’s Body was written by Juno scribe Diablo Cody. Say what you want about Juno, Cody knows how to write a smart, edgy and funny script that audiences will love. Also, not only is Adam Brody an agent of Satan with a really awesome haircut one of the stars, but Amy Sedaris is listed in the credits – win.

Here is the trailer:

The film’s plot line about a possessed high school cheerleader on a male killing spree reminds me of one of my favorite guilty pleasures, Ginger Snaps.

The comparison to Ginger Snaps, which is about a female teenager turned werewolf on a male killing sprees – it’s a metaphor for puberty! – gives me one more reason to see and love this movie. I am even willing to ignore the fact that many people will be tuning in to see Fox strip, that is how awesome Jennifer’s Body will be.
