Monsters vs Aliens

I was in the mood to go to the cinema this weekend, so I went and saw Monsters vs Aliens. I wouldn't call it a classic for the ages, but I certainly enjoyed it.

I saw it in 3-D, and it seemed smoother than Coraline, which I saw just a couple months ago. There was a fair amount of "hey look THREE-DEE" stuff flying at the camera, but given the way they were referencing '50s B movies left and right, I think it was more in the way of tribute to old-school 3-D movies than gratuitous use of the technology for its own sake, so I can't really fault it.

If you want some humorous adventuresome sci-fi, I would recommend it. And the 3-D is definitely a bonus.
