How could I forget?

Despite whatever reviews you may have read, Jennifer's Body was fucking awesome.
Yeah, sure it could've been better with more of this and less of that, but all in all, it is exactly what I was hoping for, and I was totally happy when I left the theatre. Say what you will about Megan Fox, but I love her and she was made for this role. It was one of the most perfect teenage horrors I can recall in a really long time (the last ones I can remember loving were Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer).
I also would like to say it took the whole female friendship in those types of movies to a different level. I don't want to sound like a twat but I really did appreciate the way the relationship between Jennifer and Needy was portrayed. Diablo Cody/Karyn Kusama really fuckin nailed that dynamic.
It was funny, it had scary moments - but not the kind that make you feel like "man I don't think I can watch that shit for a while again", it was hot and I loved it. I cannot wait to buy it and watch it again.
Sidenote - I really loved the pink script in the opening/closing credits.

Another movie of interest coming up The House of the Devil. The trailer reminds me of Dario Argento films a little bit. Maybe it's just the woman.
There are a couple of other ones I have a passing interest in seeing, but now that I've seen Jennifer's Body, I have to wait for my version of the next big thing to hold my breath for.

Does that make me really lame? It probably does.
But I'm pretty happy right now, so I guess I don't care.
Been drawing in my sketchbook regularly, maybe I'll start posting some of my less horrifying sketches/inkings.
I am just counting down the months. It feels really good to have a solid, attainable goal again.
