|Rate: Monsters (spoilers) (1) | Posted on April 8, 2012, 11:31 a.m.|
|Monsters is a 2010 monster movie written and directed by Gareth Edwards. I mainly watched this movie because Edwards has gained enough attention in Hollywood through this movie to be attached to a new Godzilla movie that is due out in 2014. Godzilla is one of my favorite characters in all of media, so I wanted to see if I thought Edwards had potential to do Godzilla justice.|
The basic concept of the movie is that alien creatures have invaded the Earth and the main character's boss's daughter (that's a mouthful!) was around an area that was attacked, so the main character has to get her home.
My main problem with the movie is that it never really committed to a genre. The name of the film, Monsters, makes you think that this is a monster movie. However, the monsters are only a backdrop. The only purpose they really serve is to come off as an allegory comparing how the aliens are treated to how Americans treat immigrants. This is more of a romance movie than a monster movie.
Don't get me wrong, I enjoy a good romance movie, but many romance movies have done what Monsters did, but much, much better, and without the illusion of being a monster movie. I felt like the movie was confused.
As a monster movie, I feel like the two most common, and best, methods of unveiling the monster is to either bring it out early in the movie and let it destroy everything, or to barely show anything other than very brief shots of the monster, not allowing the audience to really know what it is to create suspense, then unveil it at the end.
Monsters did neither of those things. The monster is shown in the first five minutes of the movie, then another monster isn't seen again for a long time, and there's barely any destruction.
I won't say that Monsters is bad--there were a lot of restrictions, such as not having a solid script and having a low budget--I think it was solid for an indie movie, but my problem is that it's just not a true monster movie. I will say, though, that the cinematography was gorgeous.
I have hope for Edwards as Godzilla's next director, I just hope that the bigger budget and having a solid script will help him make a great monster movie rather than just an okay one.

|Thoughts on combining HIIT and Couch to 5k? (1) | Posted on March 30, 2012, 12:40 p.m.|
|As some of you may or may not know, I'm fat. I've always been fat and I will likely always be fat. However, it has come to a point in my life where I feel like my fatness is getting out of hand, and I need help getting slightly less fat so I don't die.|
I've been dieting. I've lost 30 pounds. Now I've hit a plateau and I really need to get some exercise to help things get going. I did the first day of C25k the other day, and it was easy. But I'm thinking this type of workout might be more for the endurance aspect of running, whereas HIIT would help me burn fat.
Would it be too much to do them on alternating days? That would put me running 6 days a week.

|I have not watched Pulp Fiction. I bought it on blu-ray for like $8 not too long ago.|
Also, has anyone seen The Host? I'm curious if it's very scary.
|So what movies are we most interested in this year? (4) | Posted on March 27, 2012, 7:47 p.m.|
|The Hobbit is a good one. I also really liked Hunger Games. |
Moonrise Kingdom looks like it has a good cast and sounds pretty cool.
I also want to see Seeking a Friend for the End of the World.
|Help me pick what I watch next (1) | Posted on March 27, 2012, 7:40 p.m.|
|I have Pulp Fiction, Contagion, the Gamera movies from the 90s, Boogie Nights, Moneyball, and Netflix Instant. Help me pick, yo.|
|So what movies are we most interested in this year? (1) | Posted on March 27, 2012, 7:37 p.m.|
The Dark Knight Rises
are pretty obvious choices, but also:
Only God Forgives
off the top of my head. Hoping some good new stuff comes out soon. Saw Jump Street and Hunger Games, but I'm not sure when the next good movie is coming out.
|Just watched Sucker Punch (18) | Posted on March 26, 2012, 9:56 p.m.|
I didn't care much for it. I liked the soundtrack well enough, and the girls looked hot, but the bulk of the movie was just very poorly executed.
|What did you watch this week?: 3/19 - 3/25 (4) | Posted on March 26, 2012, 10:06 a.m.|

|Thanks for the recs!|
By the way, I read 1-12 of Godzilla: Kingdom of Monsters, 1-3 of TMNT, and 1 of Kick-Ass 2, and they were all good, though in somewhat varying degrees.
|Recommend me some short series/trade paperbacks. (5) | Posted on March 22, 2012, 7:17 p.m.|
|I'll check into all of those! Also, I was wondering if you guys like "Chew" at all.|

|I've read and like:|

The Killing Joke
That's about all I can think of off the top of my head. I bought the current TMNT mini-series 1-3, Godzilla: Kingdom of Monsters trade paperbacks 1 and 2 (issues 1-12), and Kick-Ass 2 #1. I have a few older comics, but most of them are incomplete series. I was wondering what you guys think of the Voltron comic, also.

|inFamous and inFamous 2 are excellent. I love Red Dead Redemption and Fallout 3 as well. I also like New Vegas, but play 3 first. The Batman games are great. |
For 360, you gotta go with the Mass Effect games if you haven't already.
Wii I'm not a huge fan of, but there are a lot of good older games on the Virtual Console or whatever, like Paper Mario and Mario RPG.
3DS, Mario Kart is a classic run, but this one is a bit cheap sometimes as far as the AI goes. Super Mario 3D Land is good. Ocarina of Time is kind of a given. Tales of the Abyss is a lot of fun.
I can recommend more if you'd like, I just am not sure what exactly you're looking for.
