MOVIE REVIEW: “Monsters vs. Aliens” (2009)

Republibot 3.0's picture

I was holding off seeing this movie because Republibot 1.0 didn’t like it, and usually we’re of a mind on these sorts of things - I mean, hell, it’s a Dreamworks CGI movie - how good could it be? Their products are, well, more products than films, and they’re uniformly terrible to boot.

I’m happy to say I was wrong about this one, though, it was a good, solid, fun movie. My first clue this might not suck as much as Shrek XXVI: Colon Blockage was when the cloying Dreamworks logo came up, and then one of the space ships from “Earth Versus The Flying Saucers” came by and blew it up. Hooray!

THINGS THAT ALMOST INTEREST US: "The Battle for Terra"

Republibot 3.0's picture

I saw this trailer today for the first time over on the Bigdumbobject site.

While it looks moderately eye-popping, and it's interesting to see Lionsgate do a cartoon, and an SF cartoon at that...a lot about this trailer made my eyes roll.

I've not seen the movie, but let's make some predictions, shall we?:

1) This is an ecological fable.
2) The aliens are a politically correct hybridization of American Indians and Hippies, which is the kind of thing hippies will love and Indians will hate for good reason.
