Synopsis: Buffy is a normal highschool freshman and member of the cheerleading squad. But then she meets Merrick and he shows her what she really is: The Chosen One, a Vampire Slayer. Born with the strength and skill to fight the Vampires, to stop the spread of their evil and the swell of their numbers. But she wants to stay a normal girl and wants nothing to do with such rubbish.
My Opinion: This movie may not be what Joss Whedon had intended or will do on the TV show. But it definitivly falls into the category of "guilty pleasure" and is a lot of fun if you're willing to accept its cheesiness. And the dialogue is unmistakably Whedon. Also, Lothos used a Samurai Katana, that's a plus in the book.

Evil masterminds are out to capture Katia and anyone who knows about her. Will the Bratz be able to save their new friend from the clutches of ruthless villains? Can Katias powers save the Bratz and the world? Or will the girls have to make their own magic? Join the Bratz as they enter the mysterious and exciting world of Genie Magic!
My Thoughts: Well, it was enjoyable......alot to the point that I made my dad suffer through it with me.
Still, It's been a while since I watched this, and I"ve forgotten just how girly it is. While I admit I LOVED Bratz a couple years ago, my eyes have opened. The girl thing is just over the top. And this is coming from a girl. I mean, it was tolerable, and I like the teenage-girl angle and point of view in these movies, it just could have been done better. The secret-agent acvtion stuff was a good twist to the movie too.
It makes me wanna see Bratz Rock Angelz again and remember that horrible ex-boss of Jade's, Birdeen Maxwell. That movie is also where the secret agent thing started, so I think after the marathon I'll dig that up again.
