St. Trinian's Girls Misbehave but Get to Save the School

What's behind the walls of this old English school called St. Trinian's? Is it ghosts? Monsters? Creatures of the night? Wrong! It's full of crazy undisciplined girls making the best of the school's free expression policy. Sound too good to be true? Yes, because it is! This school is an anti-school - an educational institution where girls don't really learn and have fun instead like crazy anime chicks. It's an all girls school, so you can expect a lot of young girlie fun in this movie.

It's called St. Trinian's and it's rated PG-13. It's actually a remake of sorts of an old series. In it, you'll see lots of girls misbehaving to a tune similar to that Pink Floyd's song about school and education - Another Brick in the Wall. But of course, in the end, the girls will learn a lesson or two they'll never forget and save the school in the process. If you're young, teenaged girl, maybe you should watch this. Just make sure you don't try the things the girls do in the movie. They will definitely give you trouble. St. Trinian's stars Rupert Everett, Colin Firth, Russell Brand, Stephen Fry, Gemma Arterton, Talulah Riley, Mischa Barton (pictured), Lily Cole, and Lena Heady.

Taxidermia Movie Is about What?!

There have been strange names for movies, and of course, you're familiar with some of them, like Disturbia. These kind of movies are usually of the bizarre kind - usually horror bordering on the insanely comedic. Now, there's a movie called Taxidermia and by the sound of the title, viewers may be treated to some hacking and slashing. But this movie isn't really about these. So what's it all about?

Well, simply put, Taxidermia is the story of three generations of men. There's the story of one who's obese and a speed eater; another one embalms giant cats; still another is able to shoot fire out of his "male member." The ideas are simply outrageous and you have the feeling that the movie may give you a dose of morbid comedy - never mind the horror. It's another surreal movie of the likes of Brazil. For all it's worth, it's also a drama. It's described as "a devious little nightmare," "a genre-defying exercise in imagination," and "perversely-fascinating."

It may not be for everybody, but Taxidermia is said to have been a hit in Cannes (these kind of movies often get critical acclaim there). If you're a film buff, you should definitely watch this one.

Megan Fox Burns the Tip of Her Tongue with a Lighter in Jennifer's Body

Megan Fox has battled giant alien robots in the two Transformers movies. She got a lot of publicity from them which sent her to superstar status. Now, a little-known movie with her in it is being released, 2009, and it's a teen horror flick called Jennifer's Body written by Diablo Cody and directed by Karyn Kusama.

Megan Fox plays a cheerleader who's possessed by a demon, so she's the bad one who gets to kill boys who fall for her seductions. It's up to Jennifer's friend to stop the murders. The story is not really new, and the poster reminds us too much of HBO's True Blood Series, but the movie is something that hormonal teens would probably like to see over and over, especially with Megan Fox in the starring role. Who would want to miss the scene where she sticks out her tongue and burns the tip with her lighter?

Jennifer's Body is a naughty but deadly romp in a high school where things go on but the authorities can't exactly figure out what's wrong. The story isn't really as important as what's expected to happen within the plot - which is the entertaining part. Viewers would want to see sexy Megan Fox transform (no pun intended) into a sexy demon-monster. If you've watched the Species movies, then it's something like that but it's never serious and should be a lot of fun (at least for some) to watch, however morbid.
