Time for this week's quick movie review:
Yesterday, I checked out this CG-animated film starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson (now Linda would really want to go see it!
), Jessica Biel, Gary Oldman and John Cleese. It's an homage to the sci-fi alien invasion genre - only with a twist: a human astronaut lands on an alien planet inhabited by green people living in the '50s. The film has its moments like the numerous references to Alien
and other popular sci-fi flicks, but there are also moments when the film feels forced and too derivative of everything else. Otherwise, Planet 51
is a pretty entertaining film for the whole family to watch this month. Sure beats that inane New Moon
and that dragging disaster 2012
