– (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.
– (2017) – People who fled Earth to avoid Godzilla return to destroy him. The action scenes have something of a pulse, but the rest is sheer boredom at its most mundane. The script is particularly awful, as every single line of dialog sounds written by a three-year-old who watches too many cartoons.
– (2016) – A troubled woman learns her role in monster attacks that are befalling Seoul. A unique and refreshing spin on giant creature movies, complete with highly involving characters and a plethora of surprises. Some of the dramatics are on the stiff side, but when all is said and done there’s nothing quite like this, which is a great thing.
– (2017) – A mute woman falls for a creature the government is holding captive as a means to win the space race. Certainly unusual, and does a great job creating sympathy for the central characters. For every moment of wonder, however, there are those of silliness and predictability. A B-movie with art house sensibilities.
– (2017) – Med students who kill themselves to explore death return to life haunted by the sins of their past. The previous version worked well thanks largely to a Gothic backdrop, but this one has no such vision. A too polished and too corny remake that features too many characters not worth investing any time or emotion in.
– (2011) – A group of kids filming a movie witness the start of a monster invasion. Tries incredibly hard to come across as a Spielberg movie, but can’t come close to matching the heart and humor of his early films. Every character and action goes through tired motions and can’t create a single emotion or a sense of fun. Predicable and soulless.
