Monsters (2010)

Six years after Earth has suffered an alien invasion a cynical journalist agrees to escort a shaken American tourist through an infected zone in Mexico to the safety of the US border.

Monsters was nothing like I thought it was going to be, but in a good way. First thing that surprised me was the amazing scenery and, after finding out it’s a low budget film, the special effects. It’s slowly creeping up on you and you’re on the edge of your seat, however… it’s also so beautiful. Sad. I loved what Monsters made me feel and the ending was perfectly fitting.

“Forget every lesson from a teacher, every joke from a joker; every judgment from a judge.

Forget what your parents told you. Forget what you were taught as a child and what you learned on your own.

Forget what you think is right. And wrong.

Do all this and you might become me: a Spark contained within a Shell that stood in a doorway on Sixty-Second Street in Brooklyn while a Russian businessman named Peter Stetsko attempted to park his car.”

- John Twelve Hawks, Spark

I should do three things every day, but instead I sit, paralyzed in front of my computer, beating myself up for not doing three things every day like I promised myself I would. I’ve determined this is more time-consuming and stressful than actually doing the three goddamn things a day, and, therefore, I’m entitled to my fury.
—  Jessica Knoll, Luckiest Girl Alive

OK so that one was really really good. Like sometimes I am jammin along to their covers and evolutions like, “ok this is good sounds great, sounds fun!”

BUT this time my whole family was singing to each song. They killed this one and I am so happy they paid tribute to the king. Very very astounding cover and was it just me, or were they SO SOULFUL?

I loved it.
