Monster of the Day #1657

I watched Colossal over the weekend. More accurately, I watched some of it, and fast forwarded through the rest. It’s the latest of a sort of mini-genre now, the Giant Monster Art House movie. Somehow they got Anne Hathaway (she’s a thing, right?) and Jason Sudeikis to star in it. There wasn’t a ton of giant monster action, which wasn’t the problem. I just found all the characters boring. Characters don’t have to be likeable (although if they aren’t you have to raise your game) but they have to be interesting. Meh.

    I’d wanted to see it in theaters but it didn’t have good enough word of mouth to convince me. Sounds like not a lot is awaiting me if I watch it now, either. *sigh*

    If I wanted to see boring people for entertainment I would just stay at work.

    I thought the premise was interesting, but I didn’t really see how they could stretch it into a full-length movie.
