Dreamworks' masterpiece. I never thought I'd say that. When I first saw this, I enjoyed it, but nothing more. But now, me still filled with Christmas cheer, I sat on the sofa, glued to this masterwork of film homage, comedy and breath-taking action.
It's like The Avengers, but funnier and leaner. How it manages to pack in all the likability of the five protagonists to…
The monsters were funny, the main character Susan Murphy/Ginormica was cute and well developed, and the movie as a whole is action-packed and fast paced while still being charming. It's not the deepest of stories, and the Megamind-like villain is very one-note, but the film is very popular with the 3-year old in my house. But then he is obsessed with monsters and robots 24/7.
Well this is just a fun film for the whole geeky family! The thing I love most are the small references to other films, and the on the ballot humor. It has a very talented voice cast, but at times Reese Witherspoon can be a tad annoying but that's part of her character. All and all a great science fiction family movie!
Like Megamind, this film borrows a lot from '50's sci-fi B-movies in an attempt at a smart homage, but it ends up borrowing a little too much and not really doing anything significant for itself. Unlike Megamind, I don't find the characters here particularly interesting.
I originally watched this purely to get a 3D fix and yes the 3D is excellent. I didn’t expect much but I really quite enjoyed this film - mainly down to the tons of movie references packed into this and there were some surprising laugh out loud moments. The one liners from Seth Rogen, Will Arnett and Stephen Colbert are great. It’s definitely no Pixar and really works when watched in 3D but as a 2D film it still holds up well.
Oh man. The nostalgia
oh my god i saw this in theaters so long ago
time flies man
Cartoon sci-fi comedy stars Reese Witherspoon as a bride-to-be who gets struck by a radioactive meteorite on her wedding day, causing her to grow to gigantic size. Captured by the government and dubbed "Ginormica," she becomes part of a super secret force of "monsters" who are needed to battle an alien invasion of Earth. Great animation, lots of action, and funny as hell. We all enjoyed this one and I'm usually not one for "kid flicks."
Not a great animated film, but passable entertainment.
I'd seen a chunk of this movie on TV, but this is the first time I've watched the whole thing. Another fun one from Dreamworks. I loved all the throwbacks to classic monster films, and I laughed a good amount.
first film of 2016 and it was a safe bet killer. reese is even better than I remembered her. long live monsters vs. aliens, the first great 3D movie before gravity
Entertaining enough but lacking the spark to bring it out from the pack of these type of animated movies. Everything from character design to humor to animation were sadly rather generic. A few shining moments and genuine chuckles in this fun yet ultimately forgettable movie.
Animação bem legal, muitas partes foram feitas para ser vista em 3D.
Mais uma animação engraçadinha e roteiro bem infantil, algumas piadas muito bem colocadas, mas parece um filme de fim de tarde.
Os personagens não são envolventes.
It's that B- type of kids film.
I've always been interested in what other people are seeing and watching, and naturally, I love looking at Weekend Box…
