Without planning to, I watched 3 humans vs. aliens movies in 24 hours. I can't remember the last time I've watched three movies in that amount of time, let alone 3 movies of the same genre. I think 2009 was a good year for alien-themed movies, which I really enjoy. So, here is my take:
This movie had beautiful music and special effects, but something about it just bugged me. I can't put my finger on what it was, though. The long length? Main character Sam Worthington's native Australian accent that kept popping up in his American one? The really annoying song as the credits rolled? I'm not sure--although I think it might have been the lame 3D glasses that didn't do much for the movie.
Um, ew. Possibly one of the most disturbing movies I've ever seen. I really had no idea what it was about--segregation of aliens in South Africa and the abuse of a human who becomes part-alien. I love South Africa, so it was fun to hear the accents and the interspersed Dutch words. But, yeah, ew and yuck and violent and sad. No thanks.
Ahh, my favorite! I don't think I've seen one Star Trek movie that I didn't love. Funny, fast-paced, not complicated. Just good entertainment with a good ending.
Okay, now as far as aliens go, I vote for the beautiful, unique ones in Avatar. I think I'm done with movies for now, though. Good thing Project Runway starts next week!
