The very simplistically-titled MONSTERS tries to do a lot in its short running time. It tries to be a quasi dramatic romance, a monster thriller, and a critique of U.S. immigration policy. Of those three things, it does a more than good job at the first one (thanks to a solid script), a lackluster and unoriginal job at the second one, and as for the third third thing, well, it's kind of hit-and-mi... read more

A slow paced road trip fleeing aliens and fear. The special effects were so low key, I thought I was looking at reality. The scares were unseen and around the corner like a good Hitchcock movie. I very much recommend this movie.

Dont come for the monsters, baby.

I hope there would be more movies like this one (2011´s "Another Earth" is another btw) where the sci-fi element is used in an alternative, "what if", way in the background. Here the alien element is not the center of the story but part of the scenery. The movie works between two characters who are believable enough to be likeable in some extreme (but not overboard) situations with a truly amazin... read more

Six years ago NASA discovered the possibility of alien life within our solar system. A probe was launched to collect samples, but crashed upon re-entry over Central America. Soon after, new life forms began to appear and grow. In an effort to stem the destruction that resulted, half of Mexico was quarantined as an INFECTED ZONE. Today, the American and Mexican military still struggle to contain the massive creatures... Our story begins when a jaded US journalist (McNairy) begrudgingly agrees to find his boss’ daughter, a shaken American tourist (Able) and escort her through the infected zone to the safety of the US border.

"First viewing - July 11th HBO Max Easy to see how this earned Edwards the opportunity to jump to Legendary's Godzilla. There are big monsters & human relationships weaved together in a way that mostly works. Plus it's an interesting if not especially deep look at immigration from Mexico to the U.S. The world building is solid too. Less thrilled about the opening sequence being what it is, though I'll give points for not repeating it. Overall this is a solid debut & I'm glad I finally gave it a "

My Top 275 Favorite Horror Movies of All Time (275 movies items)

" Despite what seems like a direct movie title,this is actually more of a love story with a backdrop of giant alien monsters, of which we probably don't see enough of.I gotta give credit to this movie for trying to do something different by intermingling a romance "road trip" plot within the setting of a War of the Worlds type premise, without getting too many of the tentacles all tangled up. A journey through a world in the process of alien invasion, it's a tuetonic tale that borders on far re"

Movies I Think Should Be Adapted into TV Series (20 movies items)

"A series about people trying to survive/exist in a world that's been invaded by giant alien lifeforms/monsters. Like the movie, the series would focus more on human nature than it would on interactions with the monsters; but of course there'd still be the occasional encounter with monsters."

"A man and a woman argue a lot and learn facts of life in the end. It's surprisingly sweet and tense film, hindered a bit by boring creature desing and low-quality CGI. "

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

"Before he'd take the reigns of this summer's Godzilla reboot, director Gareth Edwards made this ingeniously minimalist giant-monster movie, in which two travelers seek safe passage through a post-alien invasion, kaiju-dotted landscape. The idea of offering only glimpses of the creatures and focusing more on the aftermath may have been the result of budgetary concerns, but necessity is certainly the mother of invention here; it's a clever way of making a familiar sci-fi scenario seem fresh again."
