Monsters vs. Aliens

Finally...a proper movie. One that I've seen in the cinema. Alone.

Well, since I have no qualms at all about watching movies alone, let's just talk about the complicated world of computer animation.

You might have noticed by now that I can never write a review of a computer-animated film without mentioning Pixar. Pixar, Pixar, Pixar. But this movie was from DreamWorks. What?

Story-wise, DreamWorks Animation is catching up with Pixar, but the story is a bit---flimsier---than, say, Disney's Bolt. So my animation heirarchy right now is Pixar, Disney, and DreamWorks a distant third. That's because DreamWorks is still too---there's no other word for it---pop. Their movies are too pop. Why? Because of celebrity voices. I hope I'm making sense here.

Anyway, since this film has a star-studded cast, I'll just call attention to one of them: Seth Rogen as B.O.B the Blob. He is definitely the cutest character here. Apart from Insectosaurus. And Seth Rogen's laugh. I recognized his voice the moment he laughed.

So, all I have to do now is wait for Pixar's Up to hit the cinemas. And I do hope that happens like real soon.
