Good is subjective. If you don't believe me, you can look it up.

Monsters Vs Aliens!

Leave a comment


Like any decent kids flick, this one begins with a weird, glowing meteorite striking the earth. In its path is Susan, voiced by Oscar winner Reese Witherspoon, who takes a direct hit from the luminescent rock on her wedding day and winds up growing to 50-feet tall at the altar. Within a matter of minutes, she finds herself captured by the government and transferred to a super-secret holding facility where all the weird beings that could inspire public panic are kept: the half-man/half-insect Dr. Cockroach (Hugh Laurie); the unfrozen Missing Link (Will Arnett); jovial gelatinous mass Bob (Seth Rogen); and the freaky colossal hamster-bug called Insectosaurus (turned Butterflysaurus). They’re outcasts, but who ya gonna call when the megalomaniacal extraterrestrial Gallaxhar (Rainn Wilson) threatens the planet?

Anyways, fancy-schmancy special effects don’t mean much when the plot stinks. Fortunately, Monsters vs. Aliens does not stink. It’s one of those kid flicks where the story appeals to young and old on different, but equally entertaining, levels. The whippersnappers will love the adorable characters, while the adults will appreciate the witty pop culture references, including nods to classic creature features such as Close Encounters of the Third Kind, ET and Godzilla.

Plus, watching it in 3D, gives this movie a whole new perspective. Did you know 3D is the third revolution in motion pictures, right after the introduction of sound, then color? Neither did I!

The area that the movie shines the most is of course the visuals. The 3D is not much in your face type of 3D; it is more into the subtle depth of the pictures resulting in a brilliant movie experience. This movie concentrates on 3D that presents characters as if they are in a live stage. And the visuals are so cool; I ended up holding out my hand to try and touch the visuals that looks merely floating in front of my eyes!

This 3D movie costs $14 for a ticket compared to $9.50 for the non-3D one. Bit of a bummer though are the 3D glasses falling off your nose. They made it to fit everyone, making it too wide for people with smaller heads. It is a bit uncomfortable, but it will not ruin your movie experience. I really felt like a 12 year old kid again, ooh-ing and ahh-ing at every marvelous display of “almost real” visuals!

Overall, I would definitely give this movie a definite 2-humanosaurus-thumbs up!!!

A definite must-watch for the whole family!
