Effects don’t make the movie

I recently went and saw “Skyline”, the new Alien abduction movie. The trailers were interesting enough and I had high hopes for this movie, but unfortunately it didn’t live up to them. The movie directed by the brothers Strauss was full of various plot holes, and acting that would make high school drama students laugh; however the special effects were quite impressive. As a sort of movie monster buff it was refreshing to see some impressive and original creature effects; however these effects couldn’t distract my attention from the sub-par execution and overall movie. The ending also left me feeling kind of empty and unsatisfied, its almost like they ran out of money halfway through the movie and just ended it at the halfway point without resolving any of the problems. After watching this movie it became apparent to as why it was only playing at 10:00 pm in a theatre that had been showing the new Disney movie “Tangled”. My advice to anyone still interested in seeing this movie would be to wait for it to go to Red Box within the next 3 or 4 months and save the $10 waste at the movies.

The owl movie

 Legend of the Guardians, The Owls of Gahool. Pretty much the best movie you could possibly see that stars Owls. The special effects are at an all time high and for a PG movie its pretty violent, and I would assume that the 8 and 9 year olds that go to see this movie will be scared right out of their pants at times; but what do you expect from movie director Zack Snyder known for his kick ass movie like 300 and Watchmen. So yeah if any one els was brave enough to swallow their pride and go see this movie tell me what you though about it. I personaly loved it and would highly recomend it  🙂
