Planet 51's Xenomorph Dog

One of the trailers I sat through before the horrendous Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs was for Planet 51. The trailer thoroughly convinced me that I absolutely do not want to see Planet 51. However, it did briefly feature a dog that looked suspiciously like an Alien:

  3. I really really really hope they make a toy or plush of the cute Xenomorph Dog. That's the only thing really that made me laugh during the trailer.

  4. Nope, I didn't like anything about the movie.

    As to a Xenomorph dog toy, I'd like to see a rubbery squeaky toy, where the tongue shoots out when you squeeze.

  5. As an aside, after you posted this, I went to read the reviews at Rotten Tomatoes. My god! It's like a pack of wolves descend on every rotten review! It was almost (but not quite) worse than reading YouTube comments. Weird. I don't have the energy to find out, but I wonder if that's typical for RT --- Piling on to reviewers who dont agree with the general consensus.

  6. Unmoderated comments = repugnant vitriol. I block/delete the vast majority of comments here.

    If you're dying for something to do with your son, go see the movie, it's perfectly tolerable/harmless. But how anyone could say it's good/funny is beyond me.

    I do never get tired of plots featuring a hot girl falling for a total geeky guy.

  7. Although it didn't set any records for originality, it was still a fun movie along the same lines as Madagascar. Sure, there was no character development and the people mostly looked like cookie cutter templates, but it was fun, like a pop song that makes no sense but has a good beat.

    What I didn't like was spending an extra 4 dollars for completely cheap 3d glasses when all of the effects were in the first 5 minutes (which is true for any 3d movie I have seen) and the glasses painfully bite into your nose.

  8. 3D is a total ripoff, and really makes the cost of taking a family of 4 to see a movie absurd.
