Monsters vs. Aliens


Dirs. Rob Letterman, Conrad Vernon. 2009, 94 mins. Dolby Digital 3-D. With the voices of Reese Witherspoon, Seth Rogen, Hugh Laurie, Will Arnett, Kiefer Sutherland. The meteorite that hits Susan on her wedding day doesn’t kill her—it just makes her green and over 50 feet tall. Nicknamed Ginormica, she is recruited by the government to save the planet from the five-eyed Gallaxhar, a menace to Earth. This sophisticated tribute to sci-fi B movies of the 1950s was the first film to be produced in stereoscopic 3-D format, rather than being converted into 3-D after completion.
