Trailer Probe : Monsters vs. Aliens

November 17, 2008

Items of geekity interest should be only two minutes long, because trailers make us laugh. They make us cry. They work so hard to make us happy.

Trailer Probe rates the geek explosion content, how much our cortex is combusted with a volley of geekitude, and dork disengagement level is reasons you won't dig it.

Monsters vs. Aliens

Geek explosion content: "Suuuuu- san. Ooh, I just scared myself." -- Bob

Dare I say, this concept is elegant in its simplicity. And the Missing Link looks like the fish-man from the video game Rampage.

All comedy trailers put funny parts in them to make you want to watch the movie. If there are no other funny parts in the movie, these funny parts are still pretty good.

Everybody will like the parts with Bob, except the other parts look silly and fun, too. Who ever heard of such?

Dork disengagement level: With an idea this good, there's no way they can mess it up. Mwah ha ha ha haaaaa.

It's not made by Pixar. So there's no Randy Newman theme song. Nobody thought they could win, but they'll show 'em.

Another comedy about lovable misfits! Where are all the movies about lovable people that fit in' Besides Saw.

Have you no mirth? Then this trailer is not for you, because you'll just go "Bleh."

Geek explosion level: 800,000. It looks pretty. The monsters are funny. The aliens are funny. Let's get our hopes up, everybody!
