I love monster movies. Love ’em. Been a Godzilla fan since I was a mid single-digit child. I was watching some kind of monster movie when my mom kicked my dad out of the house for good. If there was a film with a monster, giant or otherwise, I’d watch it. And I still do.
“Nothing can prepare you for this”… unless you saw the first movie.
Ladies and gentleman, ghouls and gravediggers, undead and dead alike, welcome to another wrap-up of Shriekfest! 2010 was a pretty good year, all things considered. First off, I’d like to say that I really like Shriekfest. I have a great time there and I usually make time to see just about everything.
If you want a laugh out loud comedy that’s fun for the whole family then boy do I have the film for you. Inside Job is that hilarious.
Okay this is spoiler heavy but not of the whole movie, because I didn’t see any ONE whole movie.
So I’m watching this movie and I’m wondering if this is the birth of a new comedy team or just false labor. Good casting, great actors, good director, funny trailer, and… mediocre movie.
Hey, you know what kids like? Complex morality tales about destiny and the ying and yang of good and evil. And how love is the true motivation to do good, and that one day, half-way through your life, you may reverse your career decision and that will be okay because nature will balance whatever vacuum you created. Wait… what? Kids don’t like that?
Somebody asked me how a movie about a guy that saws his arm off isn’t a plot only worth five minutes. My question would be, how could you think it only needs five minutes?! A man CUTS HIS OWN ARM OFF. How could you not want to know more about this?
You know, the only thing that is really unstoppable is the fact that Hollywood will make a glut of mediocre action films that don’t really offend OR excite. This is really just another one of those, so we’ll just throw it on the pile.
The only question a reasonable adult would ask after seeing Skyline is “How great is Skyline?”
