Movie review: Monsters vs Aliens

Today on Black Gate, I present some 1950s science-fiction 3D insanity. Or a CGI-animated 2009 version of one. With parody. And celebrity voices. And IMAX. It’s Monsters vs Aliens: An IMAX 3D Experience. Which would make the acronym MvA:I3DE. So I’ll stick to MvA.

And I’m kind of disappointed.

I love the new RealD process, and I like seeing films that use it. Coraline shows the great possibilities of the format, and Monsters vs Aliens continues the trend of using 3D for depth and composition instead of gimmicks.

As for everything else about the film . . . read the rest here.
