Flawed but playful British alien invasion movie

"You'd be better off calling the Ghostbusters, love."

A curious mixture of The Goonies and War of the Worlds filtered through Assault on Precinct 13, Attack the Block is not exactly a typical alien invasion movie. Rather, this directorial debut for Joe Cornish is a more playful motion picture concerned with a bunch of British youths and stoners armed with whatever makeshift weapons ... read more

Basically, Shaun Of The Dead but with chavs.

To start off with, this really looked like your vintage alien-invasion film that is just a bit of fun nothing else. However, at first despite that the story is still a rather weak one, I did think that there is something special that Attack The Block will deliver or maybe even surprise the viewers. It really is the perfect film that one would describe as a film that is ridiculously stupid; but at ... read more

A good movie

Since I kept hearing some really good things about this flick, I was quite eager to check it out. Furthermore, since it was dealing with an alien invasion,  Nick, my step-son, was even more enthusiast than I was so we basically had to watch it as soon as possible. Eventually, it was really similar to  'Shaun of the Dead' except that ‘Shaun…’ was  an action horror comedy and this movie was... read more

Description: A group of London teens find themselves in the middle of an alien invasion and fight to defend their tower block from some evil extraterrestrials in this stylish sci-fi romp from the producers of Shaun of the Dead and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. Beset by a gang of young thugs as she passes through a South London housing estate, Sam (Jodie Whittaker) is in the midst of being robbed when a ball of light falls out of the sky, and destroys a nearby car. Frightened, she flees from the scene just before an unearthly beast emerges from the wreckage and attacks Moses (John Boyega), the leader of the youthful gang. In retaliation, Moses ... (more)

My Top 10 Favourite Movies of 2011 (11 movies items)

"I know it's strange putting a relatively unsubstantive film over a cinematic masterpiece like Tinker Tailor, but damn, it's just so much fun! Most people might opt for a big-budget Hollywood blockbuster, but this is my idea of simple entertainment: a relatively low-budget indie flick that's a tonne of fun to watch because you get the feeling that everyone was having a blast while making it. The fact that it's a relatively simple premise certainly helps: not too many distractions. So, watching th"

The Top 40 Sci-Fi Movies of the 21st Century (40 movies items)

"Evil extraterrestrials versus British hood rats – guess who wins? This funny, fast-paced sci-fi comedy (featuring future Force Awakens hero John Boyega and future female-Doctor-Who Jodie Whittaker) pits a bunch of neighborhood kids in a rough section of South London against an otherworldy invasion. And damned if their street smarts aren't the only thing that stands between our species and total annihilation. The fact that it flips the script and makes the so-called underclass the heroes was re"
