Modern monster movie - Monsters vs Aliens from 2009 is: *fun animation; *"wildly" entertaining with some great laughs; *drama; *suspense; *nice soundtrack; *and a "crazy" clone contraption with a "kooky" master leads to plenty of hi-jinks. The DVD has the voice talents of Reese Witherspoon, Seth Rogen, Hugh Laurie, Will Arnett, Kiefer Sutherland, and others. A favorable review: fun for families.
This movie was a huge disappointment. Just look at the other types of movies people bought who also bought this movie. That should speak for itself as far as the kind of audiences this movie attracts. Save yourself the boredom. Dreamworks has its moments, but this movie was not one of them. It's your choice to watch it if you must (I understand; I had to see for myself), but just have a purchased copy of Up nearby to redeem your 90 minutes (if, of course you make it that far).
This movie was great! It's probably the best Dreamworks animated movie I have seen lately, though other recent ones were decent too. I laughed through out the whole thing, and there were all good heart warming parts to it too. It has a good lesson in value of family & friends, and in sticking together. In another review, I listed a handful of the only movies of Seth Rogen's that I thought were any good, but I failed to mention this one also, because I wasn't thinking of this one at the time, but this is another good one he participated in too, as the gelatenous blob Bob. ALl the other voice work was very well done too...Reese Witherspoon, Hugh Laurie, Kiefer Sutherland, and the lot. There was also some great reference to some good sci fi flicks in it as well. All in all, this was a truly great film. I am going to have to go pick it up. I would highly recommend this movie to anyone. Just go and buy it! Trust me!
