JEEZ! its only just come out at the cinema....


I guess they are expecting it to flunk at the cinema so hoping to make it up on sales, supposed to be a good film, though seems to be more of a love film than a monster film

The release date is May so I would expect a UK version earlier than that, with 3 months being an average between cinema and dvd/blu-ray release.

Nice. Another "genuinely good movie gets a Steelbook release" shocker :laugh:

Fingers crossed for decent artwork.

Watched this the other night and I must admit that it's a complete bore. Don't get me wrong, I usually enjoy this type of synopsis but only 10mins of half excitement during an 1hr 30mins film leaves a bitter taste.

This is one I won't be investing in so 'I'm out'!!!

Synopsis:
Six years ago NASA discovered the possibility of alien life within our solar system. A probe was launched to collect samples, but crashed upon re-entry over Central America. Soon after new life forms began to appear there and half of Mexico was quarantined. Today, the American and Mexican military struggle to contain these alien creatures. In particular, here, we focus on a US journalist who agrees to escort a shaken tourist through the infected zone in Mexico to the safety of the US border.


So I agree it should be a monster/alien film but everything I've read says thats not the point of the movie and its not really about that, thats just the back drop. This is going to be a blind buy for me but I havent read one bad review about this film so far but they all say its not an action film and more of a love film. Chemistry must be good though as they are now married.

Also rumours of a sequel

I never read a synopsis before I watch a film but this is one I wish I had. I admit going by the title I expected more and going by other forums I wasn't the only one.

I would avoid a blind buy on this (apart from the avid steelbook collectors of course) and rent before purchase.
 
I always like to know a little bit about a film before I go in with the wrong expectations and what I loved about Monsters was exactly that it wasn't what you would expect from this kind of film.

Actually having now read all about this film on wikipedia, it is clear this film is more important and brilliant than ever!

I get the feeling this film is another Cloverfield - Raved about by the press and arty brigade but one i found genuinely boring.

Since when was Cloverfield "raved about by the [...] arty brigade" ? :laugh:

It was a hugely commercial and profitable film. Just because Monsters has giant creatures in out, it actually is nothing like Cloverfield, as just about every review has pointed out.
 
well, clearly i do not understand this worthless comment.

Perhaps your not wanted here, maybe you should go find other forums which dont feature tin boxes whatever the [email protected]&k they are!!
I actually owe you an apology. I thought you were being sarcastic. Sorry dude, I thought Monsters was great (and I wrote about it quite a bit in the movies at the cinema section).

Here we go:

YouTube - ‪Monsters Steelbook blu-ray unboxing review‬‏

I loved Monsters. The US disc is best for extras though but I'll still pick up that Germany release as I like supporting that distributor (they did a great English langauage friendly Blu-ray of Enter The Void) and will also swap it on the AVF Steelbook® trading forums for a house in a few months time.

Monsters does remind me a little of District 9 and having seen Battle: Los Angeles that reminded me of Monsters -except B:LA its too long, rather dumb, silly and not as well done. Saying that I still quite liked Battle: Los Angeles although I don't think I'll buy a Blu-ray of it.

Monsters also wants to make you think about things in life. That alone will mean many people won't like it.

There's another steelbook available with an alternate cover design. I could post some pics if anybody's interested.

Where is the best place to get German Blurays from? I tried to order a couple from Amazon.de and they wouldn't ship them to me.
