‘Monsters’ Review – Not District 9 in Anyway Shape, Form or Fashion

Oh, how I wanted to love this movie. I wanted to spread some of that alien inhabitant District 9 love to Monsters, but I cannot. I was just so bored. So very bored, for real though. (I apologize to Antonie Dobson and those who are sick of the intruders in my bed story. I had to. One more time for the year.)

Anyway, back to Monsters. First off, you cannot call a film by that title and not bombard us with exactly that – monsters. I’m sorry it’s a law, check your copy of the Constitution, under God-given rights. Give a girl what she wants, and that is bad ass alien monsters swooping in eating people and spitting them out, Godzilla-style. But thisMonsters tells the tale of a lowly photojournalist who has been given the task of escorting his boss’s daughter from Mexico back to America, through alien inhabited territory.

About that ‘Inbred’ Trailer – Ha, They Aren’t Southern

I’m Southern so it’s always refreshing to see these films set elsewhere. Lovely. This one takes place in the U.K. Also lovely. It’s called, wait for it…Inbred. I’m sure they struggled real hard to come up with that title. Now, all bad jokes aside, this is an awesome trailer for a couple of reasons, someone is getting poked with a very sharp stick and a little kid is wearing a pink tutu in a field. Cool!

Four young offenders and their workers spend a weekend in the remote Yorkshire village of Mortlake, which prides on keeping itself to itself. A minor incident with locals rapidly escalates into a blood-soaked, deliriously warped nightmare.
This hits the cinema in 2011 abroad.
