Trollhunter
Trollhunter (2011)
6 years ago via Movies on Facebook
½

The Troll Hunter follows Cloverfield, Diary of the Dead, The Last Exorcism, Paranormal Activity, Rec, and others as the newest entry in the horror/documentary genre. The effects are decent for a low budget movie, and the acting is generally good. It's not very scary though and although it is humorous in parts, I think most of the humor is lost in translation. I'd watch it again but I'm not sure if I could recommend it to anyone I know.

Megamind

I really wanted to like Megamind more than I did but it never really gelled. The acting was OK but the story still felt shallow and cliche. Despicable Me did the same story much better.

My Soul to Take

This movie felt like Wes Craven was making it up as he went along. In short, its about a schizophrenic serial killer's ghost coming back to randomly murder all children born on a certain day and who happen to share a supernatural link. Why? Why not? 70% of the movie goes by before anyone even notices that kids are turning up dead. This is not a terrible movie. It just makes no sense at all.

Skyline
Skyline (2010)
6 years ago via Movies on Facebook

The alien ships in Skyline descending on L.A. was oddly beautiful. Unfortunately none of the characters are likable. It's a textbook example of style over substance. It initially shows promise but the longer this movie goes on the dumber it gets. Fortunately it's paced well so there isn't much down time in the action to reflect on just how silly it is or why you are watching it. For what it is it's entertaining. I'd recommend this only if it's late at night and you want to see a movie that you wont feel bad about falling asleep on.

Battle: Los Angeles

Battle: Los Angeles takes itself far too seriously. Aaron Eckhart's character was good but the rest of the characters in the cast were so underdeveloped that they might as well have been extras. The battles aren't even fun. This movie is not good enough to be enjoyable or bad enough to be entertaining. It feels like grinding through a well made but bad video game. To add insult to injury, the alien's motives are so laughable that I wouldn't be surprised if M. Night had access to the script at some point. Skip it.
