Extraneous communication, genuflection, adulation, dissection and admiration should make its way in here.

Still arty (there are some rather beautiful shots in there), but bigger-budgeted and more action-based by the looks. And at least we have a better idea what we might actually be in for this time.

Ooooh, I like. Looks much better than Battleship, Battle: LA, or the like. More moody and atmospheric.

I quite enjoyed the original Monsters, except for the fact that the two main characters didn't really have redeeming qualities. I mean, slightly-assholish tourists are very realistic of characters, especially for an arthouse sci fi drama asking "who truly are the monsters?" ...but all the same, I never really connected with them.

So I, for one, am behind the idea of a new set of characters, particularly a less jingoistic view of the US military than Hollywood usually portrays.

Nuke 'em.

I never saw the first one, I was turned off by bad reviews and yeah perhaps Battle: LA left me unwilling to take a chance. Still, I always wonder about movies like these. Why do we have guys on the ground fighting giant monsters with rifles? This is the United States Goddamn Military we have all kinds of toys. Yeah yeah human story but there has to be a reason we're being dumb.
