A movie directed by Conrad Vernon

I personally think Monsters vs Aliens is one of Dreamworks most underrated films and quite possibly one of the most underrated animated movies of all time. Why do I think this is underrated? Because it's freakin' fun and one of the best times I have ever had at the theatre. Before How To Train Your Dragon came along this was probably my favourite Dreamworks movie, and its still my second favourite to date. As Mel Brooks once said, "You have to love the thing you're parodying" …

Excellent FUN For the Whole Family...NO FRIGGIN' Joke!
   Sure, most of us ‘animation fans’ associate CGI animation with animation giant Pixar. But don’t forget, Dreamworks animation also had some success with “Shrek” so Pixar isn’t exactly the lone success in CGI animation. “Monsters Vs. Aliens” is an animated comedy with enough tools to keep the young and old entertained. It has enough comedic gags and sci-fi tributes to entertain the mature audience with cool colorful, fluid animation …

Monstrous Hype Meets Most Expectations
   While it isn’t oft publicized, Pixar and DreamWorks have quite a little game of swapping going on that basically started right from the beginning.  Need evidence? Well you know Pixar’s Toy Story and DreamWorks had a remarkably similar film in Small Soldiers.  DreamWorks had Antz and Pixar A Bug’s Life.  Pixar had Finding Nemo, DreamWorks Shark Tale and so on and so forth.  Pixar led the monster genre with Monsters Inc. but DreamWorks had even bigger …

Fun for the whole family and hopes for a MVA 2!,
   Every animated movie since the release of Shrek has desperately tried to gain adult acceptance as that is were the true money lies and on the Easter Weekend we were treated to Monsters v Aliens.       It stars the usual big Hollywood names in the trendy fashion that is voicing a CGI kid's film. This time we had the talents of Reese Witherspoon, Seth Rogan (who is more than everywhere these days), a British Huge Laurie as the Monsters and Keifer Sutherland hamming …

I really enjoyed this.
 MVA, at first glance seems like a movie that's typically attempting to capitalise on the growing trend of CGI animated "comedies", however, I would personally consider it up there with the likes of Shrek and Toy Story and not down there with the likes of Space Chimps and Fly Me To The Moon, two films which may appeal to kids, but I absolutely hated. These types of movies generally attempt to appeal to both adults and children with different types of comedy which is aimed at kids, …

News Reporter: "Once again, a UFO has landed in America, the only country UFOs ever seem to land in."     Short Attention Span Summary (SASS):     1. Star studded cast lights up the screen (or at least their voices do) in a funny and action-packed computer-animated film from Dreamworks.   2. Reese Witherspoon is Susan Murphy, a sweet home Modesto girl who doesn't realize her true worth until she gets hit by a meteor. . .   3. . . . on her …

Movie Poster
           So I was lucky to see an advance screening of Monsters VS Aliens at the Manns Theater in Hollywood, CA. The coolest part was that it was with four of the animators of the movie and they even did a Q & A after the it. We were treated even more with free, thats right FREE, Monsters VS Aliens Mc Donald's Happy Meal toys. How about that?             I didn't know what to except for the movie being in 3D. I was like many people who went out of their way to go buy the 3D glasses to watch …

MONSTERS VS. ALIENS  (a film review by Mark R. Leeper)    CAPSULE: This film has a little something for the kids in the audience and a little something for the adults, but not so much both can enjoy. The film builds a story of cute monsters defending Earth from ugly aliens. A disenchanted young woman finds herself first turned into a monster and then called upon to save the Earth. The story is largely built from pieces taken from old science fiction films as if they …

Dreamworks have always been in Pixar's shadows when it comes to their animated movies. Pixar films tend to make more money, win more awards, and get more favorable reviews then Dreamworks animated films do. That said I have to admit that I've never compared the two before. Mainly because they both go for different audiences. Pixar may be in a different (and higher) league then Dreamworks, but Dreamworks films tend to have more bite and wit to them. This is especially evident in "Monsters vs. Aliens," …

When my granddaughter heard that MONSTERS VS ALIENS was opening here in Australia on her eighth birthday, she wanted to go. So after a morning at the mall and a festive lunch, off we went to collect our 3D glasses and settle in for the big show.      DreamWorks Animation dishes up a terrific family movie with MONSTERS VS ALIENS. The story is a bit thin but who cares? the characters rock. Susan Murphy gets hit by a meteorite just before her wedding in Modesto, California, and …

Pros: Great Visuals and Characters.     Cons: May be to long for small children.     The Bottom Line: A solid and enjoyable adventure with great visuals.     Ushering in what they hope will be a bold new era in 3D movie making, Dreamworks has set a very high standard with “Monsters Vs Aliens”. By combining science fiction and monster films, pop culture references, a strong cast, and cutting edge 3D technology, the film is likely …
