so? :P well said hahaha

Thank god, I thought I was the only one who doesn't find Megan Fox attractive(which, according to most of the people I have talked to, is apparently a sin).

Also, the 90's didn't suck. It had Spiderman and Batman in series that actually took themselves seriously, some seriously awesome video games such as Driver 2, Doom, Mario 64, Zelda Oot, and dozens more. Granted, it didn't have the greatest fashion sense, but neither did the 80's, and kids now certainly don't either.

Megan Fox may not be the cleverst but she is much hotter then Natalie Portman!

Hotness requires physical beauty. But charm requires intelligence.

Both of them have one. But one of them does not have both.

Pseudo-intellectuals; trying to over think hotness debates since the birth of the internet...

Towards the very end of the review Movie Bob mentions a little film by the name of Ginger Snaps. You all should go see it.
I just finished watching it and loved every minute of it. I was looking into the film having read about it in one of those "500 horror movies you need to see" books and the review it gave for "Ginger" made it sound very intriguing. So I found it on Netflix and it was to the back of the line for AWHILE. Because catching up on Battlestar Galactica is a much much much much higher priority and it should be, as is Dexter, and Weeds (but only up to season 3. Continue on if you must but the show kind of loses direction after that and just meanders about).

But having caught up on a great many things the disc came in, and it warmed the tiny little shriveled heart of my inner horror nerd.

The synopsis courtesy-o-Netflix: "The teenage years prove especially difficult for sisters Brigitte (Emily Perkins) and Ginger (Katharine Isabelle), who have an unexplained fascination with Goth and death. On the night of Ginger's first period, she's bitten by a werewolf and quickly develops several new traits -- including an aggressive sexual appetite. But as Brigitte tries to reverse the transformation, she must also hide her sister's mounting victims"

So do yourselves a solid and check it out.

Mr. Bob,

Thank you so much for saying what needed to be said. I couldn't have put it better myself. :)

Frankydee:
I'm wondering if there's anyone out there thick enough to think that this movie was going to be good in the least.

They are called 'Empire' and 'Total Film'

Hell yes!

i think bob brings up a fair point megan fox is an actress with no talent and only get screen time because of 11 and 12 year old boys go to her movies just to ogel her hor a about and hour and a half and then go home, lock them selves in there room and wack on off just before there tramatised mum walks in say dinners ready

Actually I refused to watch this movie specifically because Megan Fox was in it. She's a terrible actress, I was convinced about that after watching Transformers and from the user reviews at IMDB and other sites, I can see that this movie hasn't seen her improve any.
As for her looks, yeah, totally overrated. I can't find beauty in a woman who doesn't show substance outside physical appearance first

I do agree with your assessment of Miss Fox's acting talent, however I would like to point out she has been in at least one good film, in my opinion, how to lose friends and alienate people. The film is definitely not carried by her acting talent but her role is practically herself in real life, which works quite well. If she sticks to roles like that she might be able to make a few more good films.

your so right i dont see what people see in megan fox she doesnt look as good as other people, but still great review

she's ok-ish I guess, Like sometimes I think she looks ok, but I change my mind later so she doesnt impress me

So, MovieBob... how do you do it?
Your works are always very nicely edited, but when it comes to your occasional "oh wait one more thing" moments... they seem to pop up at PRECISELY the instant that I am reaching for the Escape key to skip out on the credits and move on to your next review. Kudos, my friend.

Who would have thought you'd miss the 90's so much!!
Post this in your profile if you remember these days . . . .
or if you smiled at one of these things.

you know, the reason this movie's trailer put me off was the outright misandry. "Its okay to dump on guys because they don't have real feelings." Pisses me off more than the serial killing and mediocre acting.

DISAGREE! or.. well, i should say FALSE!

90s music (and the fact that america got to enjoy the ignorant bliss that was the clinton years [seriously, he was one of the best things to happen to america and if you disagree, keep this in mind. Clinton, was the closest person to actually SUBTRACTING from a national debt. yeah. plus all he did with health care and stuff like that]) was amazing. and it was a precursor to rock of today. Alt started in the 90s, or at least got its firm footing. Grunge enjoyed the golden years and the hardships and death. and music is always best when you can look back at it with nostalgia when it dies. Pop... was semi decent. Rap... it actually meant something at least. 80s bands and bands like metallica got a whole new group audience. Bout the only bad thing in 90s music was boy bands.

So false movie bob. 90s music kicked ass. However, I do agree on every statement made about megan fox, and the transformers, but thats a compeltely different review.

Dude. Bob.

Cut it out with that ****ing "oh wait one more thing" BS. You're very entertaining in all your series, but that isn't cute, it isn't helpful, and it doesn't make people watch the credits, it just makes people have to wait for the darn thing to reload after then hit the back button to watch the next video. Yeah, we watch the timers, but credits are supposed to be the end. If you really want people to watch the credits, put in little jokes like Zero Punctuaction does.

And to the guy above me, No. Clinton was meh at best, for reasons that are far to long and complicated to get in here, but basically boils down to the fact that the Surplus was a fake reliant upon dipping into the Social security trust fund to cover standard budget shortfalls, and even that fake surplus was only a result of a Republican congress instiuting spending cuts (Congress controls the budget) AND then there's the fact that he gave away nuclear secrets to China. He didn't do anything else that was really bad though, so meh. That, and the 90s were the the years when Metallica went to **** (Fuel? Refuel? REALLY?).

I mean, I liked the 90s, but still....>_>

..Uhm, not to put down Megan Fox but I'm not into her really. Not saying she isn't beautiful in her own aspect but the way she presents herself makes me just question it. This movie also made me a little creeped out, knowing Megan Fox took the role of some demon seducing to only end up killing/eating them with a wicked mouth.. *shivers* Jeez.. but nice review Bob.

mattttherman3:
I know why you reviewed this, because Megan Fox is in it and that is all. She may be hot but she's dumb as a brick(her interviews prove that). The only "good" thing about this movie is the make out scene, and if I want to see that stuff, I'll use google.

Whoa whoa whoa! Don't insult the brick's intelligence like that!

Wait, wait, wait, the whole start of this plot is the Satan worshipers failed to get a virgin? You'd think they'd have some way of fucking checking that!
