'The Darkest Hour' reviews suggest the worst for this alien invasion flick

The Darkest Hour, the latest in a long line of alien invasion movies, opened on Christmas day to a host of poor reviews.

'Battleship' trailer - It's like Transformers meets the open sea

Monsters is one of my most anticipated releases. Directed by Gareth Edwards in Mexico, it shows what a good filmmaker can accomplish, even with almost no money. All of the special effects were done by Edwards himself. Like 28 Days Later, it's a supernatural movie with monsters, but it's more about the psychology of the characters. Cloverfield 2, this is not. Still, it's one of way too many alien invasion movies coming out in the next couple years.
