In my opinion what makes Jenna perfect for horror movie, is the way she wears her hair. Along with her makeup and that devious look in her eyes!
Love her so much. She's like the Johnny Depp girl version and her dance is stupidly hilarious but I'm loving them. She's really good at what she does. I hope she'll be given the Best Actress Award.❤

@@goodnightmunchie my man where did this come from what
Some people are just naturally gifted. If you love your work, it isn't work anymore. It becomes infatuation and you lose track of time because of your immersion. This is exactly how I perceive her preparation for this role. She will be a hot commodity for producers and directors for future projects because of it.
@@samusiran2243 Understand context. Understand the English language. There are 267 thumbs up from people that understand the intent of this post. But for the people, like you, that lack critical thinking skills, let me clarify. She was complimented entirely within the realm of her dedication to her craft and for her professionalism. Never once with reference to her sexuality or gender. It is YOU that made this connection and it shows where YOUR head is at. Not mine. Your lack of observation and comprehension is EXACTLY why there is a brewing "anti-woke" movement in America. A movement I don't necessarily agree with, but people like you make it easy for me to understand why. People, like you, that search for reasons to be offended. Small, petty reasons that don't exist anywhere else except for within your head. I suggest you learn a new word today. Look up the definition of Semantics.
@@samusiran2243 Just stop. Quit playing victim after your "super cringe" comment. It is extremely revealing of your fragile self-perception. Regardless, internet bullying does not suit you because at the first moment someone fights back you melt like a snowflake. The more you talk, the less convincing you are.
@@samusiran2243 Too funny. It isn't a measure of support. It is a measure of reading comprehension. And you failed. Don't fret. I would say that there are numerous people "worldwide" that would fail at it as well.
@@samusiran2243 Twist yourself into more logic pretzels. As if I believe that English is the only language, yet here we are having dialog in........ENGLISH. A dialog that I grow weary of. In all honesty, I think YOU are cringe worthy. Not joking. Have a good life being offended at every little thing that you cannot comprehend and compounding the problem by making yourself look like a fool with feigned internet outrage.
@@samusiran2243 Your false equivalency is revealing. A reply isn't a counter argument. It is simply a reply. I don't give participation trophies for simple replies as your counter arguments are nothing more than a tossed word salad of confusion. There is no "yin and yang" here. There is simply your inability to comprehend basic composition.
Hearing a young person mention artists like Siouxsie Sioux Lene Lovich Nina Hagen fills me with hope for this generation ! choosing The Cramps was a stroke of genius also loved that she paid homage to the original Wednesdays moves within her routine
The fact that she’s heard of these singers is wonderful.

Respectfully, that's what all good actors and actresses do and that's what makes it a job. Things have come allot easier for the newer aged "celebrities" we see now a days so when we see someone actually doing what they are supposed to be doing, people tend to glorify it, but to me, this is the "norm" I grew up with artists like Michael Jackson and Prince. I love to see Young talent like Jenna actually put in work, it's refreshing to see. 😊

Jenna Ortega is an incredible human being! It still blows my mind that weird and goth and geek and all these things that when I was a kid were SHAMEFUL and embarrassing are now mainstream and cool. I was obsessed with Tim Burton when I was a kid, especially Betelgeuse, as well as vampires and other things people thought was weird. I even remember convincing myself I was a missing member of the Addams Family that my actual family had adopted to which my mum responded, "if you were adopted we would have given you back!" 🤣 She portrayed Wednesday perfectly and her commitment to the character is unlike anything I've ever seen. She's beyond fabulous!
She’s so humble and real she’s just someone talking about their job which they obviously love
There is a tiny moment in which you can see her doing The Droop (the original Wednesday dance) if you know what to look for. Also, regarding her eye contact during the scene, I saw a comment on the video that said, "It's like she's dancing _at_ him, rather than _with_ him." I thought that summed it up perfectly. By the way (spoilers) if you listen to the lyrics and pay attention to the scene, the self-description in "Goo Goo Muck" applies both to the vampire DJ _at_ the dance _and_ the boy she's there with.
I think it's a reference to the era of the original Addams Family back in the 60s when the show first appeared in black and white. https //itvid.net/video/video-F3jnymeJof4.html However Wednesday as a child in the 1960s did I think a different dance from the same era though Goo Goo Muck also came from the era.
@@WinoaKaronhiatens You are correct. Unfortunately, whoever edited the scene cut in and out of that dance move so quickly that it's barely noticeable. I just love that she worked it into the scene, even if it's only visible for a second.

I loved this show!! She rocked that dance. When it started, I was like, "Oh s_ _t! This is funny as hell." The whole show is awesome...GREAT JOB!!!
you see the shuffle for a split second - but I can tell you nailed it!
The dance scene was just so refreshing and took place at the right time in the season. Wednesday comes off as this sullen teenager with some very niche skills like fencing, and the cello, and archery, but she's been refusing to show too much of herself to the other Nevermore students. When she finally cuts loose, it reminded everyone that she is not a wallflower, or some shy character who is standoffish in social situations, she commands that dance floor by parking herself and her date right in the middle of it so she can show off, just like how her parents Gomez and Morticia would have done. Being a fan of dance, and a dance student for years, hearing Jenna list off her inspirations for the choreo she put together made me smile! She took some very quirky and iconic dance styles and made them feel new and exciting again, without breaking character for a second. Everything she drew from was totally in keeping with the Wednesday Addams we've known for decades. Bold, subversive, unique, a touch of humor, and totally entrancing. There's a good reason why so many people are drawn to that scene from the show.
Settle down loser
She is the Katniss Everdeen of Nevermore. She is a lot like Jennifer Lawrence in terms of her skill set.
She stole that dance from she's all that
@@geoffreyharris5931 That's a good comment. I heard JL was nominated for an Oscar for an early role, so I watched the movie, and could see she was exceptional. I feel the same way about Jenna. and the touches she brought to the Wednesday role. Her walk improved from the opening high school scene where she swung her arms and wore high heeled boots. Her pithy laconic comments. I think she smiled once in the whole of Wednesday. I'd like to see her in a straight dramatic role.
