Monsters! (but really it's aliens)

Shucks, we love alien invasions and apocalypses (plural?) and all those fun things. So here's another one to satiate our sick taste in films! MONSTERS! OOOHHH!!

"Six years ago NASA discovered the possibility of alien life within our solar system. A probe was launched to collect samples, but crashed upon re-entry over Central America. Soon after, new life forms began to appear and half of Mexico was quarantined as an INFECTED ZONE. Today, the American and Mexican military still struggle to contain "the creatures"...... Our story begins when a US journalist agrees to escort a shaken tourist through the infected zone in Mexico to the safety of the US border." Why, thanks IMDB! You're so helpful.

I'm super intrigued by this one, even though the trailer barely gives you a single glimpse of the title character. Haha get it? Cuz it's called Monsters.

I love me a good giant destructive force - such as the building-tramplin' jerk from Cloverfield, or some old fashioned Godzilla. This one will surely make me squirm, and I'll like it.

The film stars Whitney Able and Scoot McNairy. No, I didn't make those names up. Someone out there is actually named Scoot. And since I don't know who these actors are, I will assume you don't know either. So there.

It seems like there'll be a smidge of first person perspective in this one, which y'all know we love. I think we might love that style so much because we're  just so damn obsessed with movies that we wanna feel like we're IN them. And this style gives us that feeling. Aaaannd I officially need therapy after reading that sentence back to myself.

You're judging me, I know you are. You know what? I don't care. I don't need help. I'm not delusional, I'm just creative. What matters is that I'm happy with myself, and I'm perfectly content to come home from a long day at Hogwarts and curl up in Home Tree every night (aka a hammock in my closet).
