What’s playing in movie houses right now? I have no idea 🙂 but here I am again to give you another dose of Movies to watch out for. For today’s Movie Martes I’d like to share with you two animated films: Monsters VS Aliens and Afro Samurai: Resurrection.
Monster VS Aliens
This would probably be the film that would force me to go to SM Mall of Asia just to watch a movie. This is a story about a California girl named Susan Murphy (Ginormica) who was clobbered by a meteor full of outer space gunk on her wedding day. She mysteriously transforms to 49-foot tall monster and was captured by the government compound. There, she joins the brilliant but insect-headed Dr. Cockroach, Ph.D.; the macho half-ape, half-fish The Missing Link; the gelatinous and indestructible B.O.B.; and the 350-foot grub called Insectosaurus. Their lives get interesting when Aliens soon start arriving on earth!
This film features the voices of Reese Witherspoon, Hugh Laurie (House), Will Arnett, Seth Rogen and Rainn Wilson.
These monsters were also featured in the Superbowl commercial
Really Cool! It will be out in March 2009!
Now this is one violent, bloody, kick ass film! Afro Samurai is a Japanese dōjinshi manga series created by Takashi Okazaki. This movie was aired on Spike TV on January 25, 2009. It features the voices of Samuel Jackson as “Afro” and Lucy Liu as “Sio”.
Because of the violence in this film, don’t let your kids watch it. However, for big “kids” like us, the animation and soundtrack will blow your mind away. The soundtrack called The RZA Presents Afro Samurai: Resurrection, was made available physically and digitally on January 27th, 2009 through RZA’s label Wu Music Group and features Rah Digga, Kool G. Rap and members & Affiliates of the Wu-Tang Clan. I just love the soundtrack! It’s great to listen to when you’re driving or working out.
Watch it and let me know if you like it 🙂 Until next Tuesday!
