we've been wanting to take the kids to see Monsters VS Aliens, but we waited for it to be featured at the drive-in coz Devean, for some reason does not like going to the walk-in theaters... he gets so scared of sumthin... I don't wanna say he's claustrophobic coz he plays inside boxes & lets his little brother close the lids on him... the last time we went to a movie house was Kung Fu Panda when we were in Seattle last year... & I just noticed he kinda freaks out when the people gets a little loud & then he looks around, as soon as he sees the exit door, he calms down... so we always have to settle for the drive-in for now, which is cool since it's always double feature there... double score! you pay less the price of a movie at the theater X 2 movies then kids are free, so we only spent $13 ($6.50/adult) instead of spending $34 at the movie house... so we went tonight with my brother, sis-in-law & the little nephew-monster... it was Monsters VS Aliens & then Fast & Furious after... I know right?! perfect combo!! hell yeah!!
Synopsis: When a radioactive meteor hurtles into Susan Murphy (voiced by Reese Witherspoon) on her wedding day, she is transformed into a towering, platinum-haired giant. Taken away by the government and dubbed "Ginormica," Susan is introduced to other scientific oddities, including the amphibious Missing Link (Will Arnett), the dim blob B.O.B. (Seth Rogen), and the brilliant, bug-headed Dr. Cockroach (Hugh Laurie). These "monsters" are released from captivity when a massive alien robot sent by the scheming Gallaxhar (Rainn Wilson) appears in San Francisco and clearly does not come in peace. With little time to adjust to her new stature, Susan must learn to work with her strange allies to avoid an all-out extraterrestrial invasion. Co-directed by Rob Letterman (SHARK TALE) and Conrad Vernon (SHREK 2) for DreamWorks Studios, this enjoyable animated production riffs on 1950s sci-fi movies while also playfully referencing everything from DR. STRANGELOVE to CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND. The vocal talent, which also includes Stephen Colbert as a daft, keyboard-playing American president, is top-notch, adding plenty of personality to the super-sized visuals and eye-popping effects. Conveying an easy-going sense of humor that will delight kids and amuse adults, MONSTERS VS. ALIENS is fun family fare that is sure to leave everyone thoroughly entertained.
the kids loved it... but it wasn't all that for me... the only part i like are the ones with the one eyed , brainless, blue gelatinous blob a.k.a. B.O.B which stands for benzoate-ostylezene-bicarbonate -- that is the result of an experiment with a tomato and dessert topping... he is voiced by Seth Rogen... B.O.B. is an instant scene-stealer... other than good ol B.O.B., the movie is just ok for me...

Synopsis: This fourth entry in THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS franchise reunites the original stars: Michelle Rodriguez, Paul Walker, Jordana Brewster, and of course the bad dude himself, Vin Diesel. Needless to say, there's going to be a lot of speed and demolition, especially in the fantastic opening truck hijack executed at amazing speeds by Dominic (Diesel) and his sexy partner in crime, Letty (Rodriguez). When Letty gets killed, it's revenge time, with the path of the bad guy leading Dominic back across the border to Los Angeles (where he's still wanted by the law) and into a high-stakes street race in which he's teamed up with his old nemesis, undercover fed Brian O'Conner (Walker). As in the original, Brewster makes a foxy love interest for Walker (she's Dom's kid sister), but there's not much time for kissing: there's races to be won, huge accidents to cause, and shady smuggling plots to foil. Fans of the series should be too busy digging the NO2-powered action to notice if there's anything missing in the storyline, which caterwauls along with gleeful abandon and disregard for logic, sanity, and speed limits. Directed with a sure hand by Justin Lin (TOKYO DRIFT), FAST & FURIOUS features loads of hot babes, and Diesel is as ripped, raging, and gravel-voiced deadpan as ever.

the only thing I can say about this movie is "bad ass!!!"... believe it or not, I haven't seen the 3 prequels... but I dunno, I guess I'm just very easy to please... I'm not picky at all... just as long as there's guys that are hot, cool car race, pretty girls in cute clothes, i'll sit still... my favorite part is Dominic & Brian... LOL!
