I watched Monsters vs Aliens on HBO over the weekend. It’s a Dreamworks Animation flick, so it’s the same studio that produced Shrek, How to Train Your Dragon, Bee Movie, etc. I’m not a huge Dreamworks animated film fan, but this wasn’t a bad film. I liked the 50’s monster movie feel to it, and I liked the cast — Reese Witherspoon, Seth Rogen, Will Arnett, Hugh Laurie, Rainn Wilson, and more. This is supposedly the first animated film created start to finish in 3D, and I know this was a big film to promote 3D television in 2010. You can see the elements that would have been 3D, but those obviously don’t come out now. The animation was nice. The story was fairly generic, and you could see the plot points a mile away. Still, it’s worth a rental for the animation and the cast.
