G.I. Joe and Monsters Vs Aliens

Sunday, November 15th, 2009

Watched the new G.I. Joe movie and Monsters vs Aliens this weekend — had two free Redbox movie rentals, so why not?

G.I. Joe wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. Definitely glad I didn’t pay 10 bucks to see it in the theaters. What amazed me is that apparently only about six Joes actually do anything until the very end. At one point, a call goes out to “all Joe teams” — there’s only six of you there…and three of you are in the same room… Still, if you don’t want to think too much and just enjoy things blowing up, have at it.

Monsters vs Aliens was a lot better (but that’s probably not saying too much, compared to G.I. Joe). Funny movie and definitely enjoyed hearing the British Hugh Laurie ( as opposed to the House version…). And what could possibly be bad about a movie with Steven Colbert as the President? In my book, nothing.
