Monster Squad - streams on Prime
I actually saw this on TV once many years ago, back when I was probably 12-15 years old. I did not see the whole thing(who did back then?), but I saw the final 30 minutes for sure. This is another recommendation from Jay Bauman of Redlettermedia.
Anyway, it was very charming and cute and honestly, I kind of loved it. I am not surprised to learn it is a Shane Black script. Very punch and a lot of attempted one-liners. The kids are really great in this movie and the whole thing is a lot of fun. It’s basically about a group of kids that love monsters and…well, they end up having to fight them in the real world.
I would again point out something I noticed in Free Guy. This is a perfectly acceptable PG movie…except they threw in just enough language or sexual content that it got itself up to a PG-13 rating. It’s nothing atrocious, but this could be a movie that would be equally fun and effective and gotten the PG rating. Anyway, not a big point, but something I noticed.
If you’ve never seen it, check it out. I also have a question:
Question: I remember a movie where a guy or monster gets pushed out a window and exploded. This happens to the Wolf-man in this movie. My memory was of a movie where the movie pauses and text comes on the screen saying “Wow. That was so cool, let’s see that again!” and it rewinds and shows it again. I…thought that was this movie, but it didn’t happen.
Anyone know what movie I’m remembering?
