    Heard this was fantastic. Never got round to seeing it. Must remedy that.

    Got my hands on a copy. Watched it last night. Essentially it’s a mumble-core It Happened One Night with a light sprinkling of monsters. I spent most of it boggling at what he’d managed to achieve on such a miniscule budget. He won’t be doing the effects for Godzilla on his laptop. The creature design is excellent and one of the best scenes is where we get a really good look at two of them. It inspires awe and is really rather beautiful. Slight problem with the leads. Despite the fact they’re a real life couple, any chemistry between them… Read more »

    Helluva good movie. One of my favorite flicks, and I’m not a big fan of monster movies (generally speaking).

    Never seen it!. Just ordered and can’t wait.

    How hard of an “R” is this? Suitable for your average 14 year old male? Ratings mean squat nowadays. I trust opinion better.

    I don’t recall anything in it that would make it pg-13 much less R.

    It’s a good movie. Good acting, believable terror and risk. But basically, it’s the story of the drug war in northern Mexico. I think that it’s rated “R” because of brief scene with a Mexican hooker.

    My beef with it is the really shitty geography. Did you know that there’s jungle in Northern Mexico and you can see Texas from the tops of Mayan Pyramids? No? Neither did I… and I have degrees in Archaeology and Geography.

    I saw the same film. This is in a classic tradition of sci-fi as an analog for current events. Recall the map of the quarantine zone? That’s the area where the current Mexican drug lords hold control. The theme of a foreign entity making a large section of country off-limits? Aliens = drug lords? The US border fence?
