Honey Monster Reports – Friday 8 January

Welcome to today’s Honey Monster Reports.

Every Friday I look at DVD releases and new movies in the cinema.  I love a monster film – or even a good film that isn’t about monsters!

Over the next few weeks, there are some great films coming out on DVD

Aliens in the AtticFirst up is Aliens in the Attic

  • A great DVD that’s out 1st February and is rated PG.
  • A group of kids are on holiday with their family when their plans are rudely interrupted.  Uh oh!
  • They are forced to defend their home against a band of crazy aliens.  They’re not the friendliest little critters – although Sparks, one of them isn’t so bad.  They have an alien mind control device which they use on the adults so the kids are left to save the day.
  • Fortunately they’re a smart bunch and the kids unleash their imaginations, creating makeshift weapons, like pipe rigged as a home made potato spud gun – hee hee!.
  • They even learn to use the mind controller.  Its loads of fun and gets two monster thumbs up from me!Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs

Next up is Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs

  • Out on DVD on the 15th February and again rated PG.
  • This is a really weird story about a tiny island where food falls from the sky like rain. Sounds good already right – mmm, feeling quite hungry now!
  • So how does that happen?  Well a chap called Flint is a clever young inventor who has recently completed a machine that he claims will turn water into food. He isn’t such a great inventor though and it doesn’t work as planned, and on its test run it ends up getting launched into the sky where clouds form and begin to rain cheeseburgers!  Mmm, now I’m REALLY hungry!
  • Anyway if you think that’s crazy enough things go from bad to worse once the whole town gets in on the act!
