Monsters vs Aliens

Inspired by 1950's B-movies, Monsters vs Aliens is a hoot! Susan is a bride who becomes a giant. She's locked in a top-secret government facility alongside four other monsters. Susan's fellow prisoners include the blob, the creature from the black lagoon, a mad scientist and a giant bug.

Thank you Dreamworks for giving parents an animated movie that is fun for people over age 5!

Slumdog Millionaire

The best description of Slumdog Millionaire is from a Rolling Stone review:

An illiterate slum kid from Mumbai goes on the local TV version of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire and comes off like a brainiac. Who wants to see that? Final answer: You do. Slumdog Millionaire has the goods to bust out as a scrappy contender in the Oscar race. It's modern India standing in for a world in full economic spin. It's an explosion of color and light with the darkness ever ready to invade. It's a family film of shocking brutality, a romance haunted by sexual abuse, a fantasy of wealth fueled by crushing poverty.

Rent this movie! You won't be sorry. Here's the trailer if you haven't seen it.

Do either of these movies sound good to you? If not, what is your movie pick this weekend?
