Skyline Sucks

I went to see Skyline with my cousin-in-law @ondre (wait, thats not a real relation, he is married to my cousin). As a parent, he doesn't get to go to the movies much, so I feel like an ass for making him see this sci-fi shit-brick.

Skyline is about some asshole douchebags who attempt to survive an alien invasion. It really sucked. It tries way too hard to be Cloverfield but misses, then tries for District 9 and totally fails. The directors have the most pretentious credit ever "A Brothers Strause Film", they previously directed AVP: Requiem and a Nickelback* video.

Skyline stars Eric Balfour, who you might remember from some episodes of the O.C. or 24, but I didn't since I've watched neither. It was about 2 minutes into the movie that I realized I hated looking at him.
The movie also has the nurse guy from Scrubs, and the cop guy from Dexter.

The more I thought about it, the more I really disliked this movie.

*the word "Nickelback" is to be read with a shudder accompanied the standard feeling of disgust.


  1. Jagger wanted to see this movie, but I'll tell him we should pass on it. I'm dying to see Monsters though - which actually does look like Cloverfield meets District 9!
