Mindless Fun

  • Excerpt: I went into this with the worst expectations, I had heard so many awful thing about this movie that it took me a while after it was released on Blu to actually watching it. That said, I thought this was a fun movie! Was there bad acting? Of course. Was the plot not so great? Yes. It was still a fun movie to watch, though. The PQ and AQ were both great, turn up that surround sound and you'll have yourself a great time.

Skyline

  • Excerpt: Okay, so the movie wasn't Woar of the Worlds, but people to give it a 2.0 or lower is just insane. Actually the orginality wasn't bad at all, I honestly enjoyed it. The DTS on my Samsung was brillant. I agree this can't be compared to District 9, however I think viewers should give it a rent!

Strangely interesting and stylish apocalyptic science fiction

  • Summary: I'm surprised this move is not higher rated. I think its one of the best science fiction/monster movies to come out in some time. Awesome special effects in this one, with nice designs for the monsters and the alien ships and tech. The movie is creatively shot and I like how focused the plot was on the few main characters. A wonderful sense of doom pervades the whole film, with no cheap typical Hollywood miraculous escapes or happy endings.

I liked it.

  • Summary: Aliens descend on Los Angeles out of the blue, surround the young casts condo, and prepare to finish them off, then the movie switches to "15 hours earlier". What more import information could we possibly need to know, what the characters exchanged for birthday presents? The switch-up kind of made me want to leave the theater. Instead of wondering, who got what as a housewarming present, I was wondering if the theater would give out a refund 10 minutes into a movie.

I saw AVP:R. I was ready to rip SKYLINE to shreds....

  • Summary: ...but to be quite honest, it isn't that bad. Actually an OK B-Movie. All of the complaints against the acting are, for the most part, unfounded. It's not academy award winning material, but i think pretty much everyone involved gives competent performances. And i'm not sure what people wanted from the dialogue. These are regular people in way over their heads in the middle of an alien invasion. I thought the dialogue was not an issue.

Not awful, certainly not expected...

  • Summary: They drop from the sky with no warning. They do seemingly inexplicable things. They are capable of things that defy human experience. And we see it from the perspective of people we have no real connection to. My first thoughts were something like, "How are K-Fed and Bobby Brown gonna save the planet?" Turns out, I need not have wondered.

Not that bad

eslaughter-1, IMDb

  • Summary: I see many posters claims Skyline is the 'worst movie ever' - that isn't even close to true. This $10 million movie was way better than the $100 million Van Helsing. And also way better than Johnny Mnemonic which is the gold standard by which I judge all bad movies. I actually liked Skyline. It was by no means a great movie but props to the film makers for skipping all of the alien invasion clichés and going with something original.

Refreshing and Spectacular

  • Summary: Wow! Well I liked the film. It's a smaller fare focusing on a group of friends trying to stay alive during an alien invasion instead of the usual arm up and fight back features. Refreshingly different and the visual effects are spectacular, but they would be since the directors own the effects company on the film.

Quite original, but the acting was a bit thin.

  • Conclusion: I did enjoy this film. The plot was a little thin and acting was a bit drab and predictable in places. I think David Zayas (Angel from Dexter) had been on the espresso's from his almost schizophrenic performance. The effects were very good with some great monster designs and shots. just ordered the Blu Ray.

  • Conclusion: look this is not a bad sci fi film..$10 million to make and is better than clover field in my opinon ... I brought this on dvd with a digital copy included (would recomend the blu ray) and can honestly say its not a bad piece of sci-fi.. I dont think it was made to ba an avatar,although i belive the company involved in the CGI were also involved so come on give it a go and wacth it as it is intended ..that being a low budget sci fi....
