We need Monsters!

Yep, went and seen Monsters vs Aliens. Following the success of many animated movies the last few years such as The Incredibles, Madagascar and the yearly movie from Pixar, Monsters vs Aliens proves that an animated movie can appeal to both adults and children. This movie had great voice acting with the talents of Reese Witherspoon, Seth Rogen and even Stephen Colbert. It all starts out on the wedding day of Susan. While outside getting some air before she goes in to go through the ceremony, she is inexplicably hit by a meteorite. As a result she absorbs the strange energy that was pulsing through the meteorite and grows to an astounding 50 feet tall. This leads to her being captured by the government and placed into custody along with other monsters that the government has captured over the years, including The Missing Link, Dr Cockroach, Bob the gelatinous indestructible blob, and the enormous Insectosaurus. When an alien invades Earth trying to find the energy that was in that meteorite and now in Susan, he begins the attack to get it back. Monsters vs Aliens, is full of action, and is hilarious for both kids and adults. Bob the blob totally makes the movie and has the best monster origin story Ive ever heard. SO go and take your kids if you have any, but still go even if you don't, you ll enjoy this film. I give Monster vs Aliens a score on the Heath-meter of 8 out of 10.
