– (1968) – Astronauts unwittingly bring back an ooze from an asteroid that morphs into monsters. Though the goofy special F/X and creature designs do amuse, they’re all but wasted in a movie that refuses to move beyond the speed of molasses. Might have worked better if it displayed a pulse.
– (1983) – Two aliens grown from pods either befriend a boy or murder locals. A strange blend of a children’s movie and horror tale that’s pretty creepy one moment and blatantly absurd the next. A bit too slow in spots, but most always offers an amusement and does have a depressing outcome.
– (2018) – Humans aim to destroy Godzilla to restore Earth’s environment to habitable conditions. The few monster moments are okay, but 95% of this consists of characters rambling on and on and on about what should be done instead of actually doing it. A mighty bore that even seasoned fans will yawn through.
– (2017) – Johnny Rico and his troopers try to outlast bugs and a politician who wants to wipe out Mars. For every moment of interest there are several of repetitiveness and rock bottom dialog. Has a rather sensitive moment featuring a past character, and the visuals are cool, but there’s little new here.
– (2018) – Giant monsters invade Earth with aid from corporate scum, and it’s up to youth-controlled robots to bring them down. Exactly on par with the first film, from rancid dialog to slapdash action to the feeling that a lot of money was wasted during production. An obnoxious, empty headed children’s movie.
– (2018) – An alien with a knack for killing armed humans must also deal with eliminating his own species. Gets off to a vibrant, fast paced, and humorous start before running out of steam and becoming nonsensical and ho-hum. The story and editing are so sloppily handled it’s hard to tell what the overall purpose is.
– (2015) – Faux documentary about a bunch of people who describe their dark brushes with sleep paralysis. An excruciating experience that gets old five minutes in, but insists on dragging out stories that get less involving the more they expand. Might have worked as a short, but this is full length torture of bad actors pretending to have real plights.
– (2017) – A couple of lycanthropes uncover an alien plot of impregnating humans through beer. Has a lot going on and moves fast (a little too fast at times) yet somehow bores because none of the zaniness amounts to anything. Tries hard to please, but one probably has to be stoned to find full enjoyment.
