I didn't Love 'Love and Monsters' And It's Not Because It's Bad
Updated: Oct 29, 2020
I was so excited about this new monster movie
When I covered Love and Monsters a couple of months ago I was very excited to see this movie. I even paid the $20 just to rent it one night. It could have been because I was distracted by other things or I simply just wasn't in the mood to enjoy a movie at the time. It could also be because I am an absolute asshole. First off the protagonist in the movie is a huge pussy. I understand giant monsters killed your family dadadada but Jesus Christ did he have to be so god damn scared I mean how did he even survive this far.
In the face of danger he completely freezes up in front of a monster. I mean I have not been in the situation before but I most definitely would've at least moved a muscle. I was hoping for a bad ass leading character.
The love interest we only had to go off one scene of their chemistry and it really didn't seem all that much to risk your life over. Do you guys remember me talking about simping. Well this man was a huge simp.
It was so obvious at 1/4 way through the movie that the girl, Aimee, was either going to have a man to replace him, be dead, or not even want him still. Surely, he makes it to her colony after surviving seven days out on ground zero and she doesn't even want him anymore.
Just not a good concept for me and I would've much rather a premise that was easier to roll with. On Rotten Tomatoes this film got a 90%. Maybe because there is a dog in it that we thought was going to die but it didn't end up dying. Well, I didn't know if it died to be honest I couldn't make it through the whole movie.
For the most part, the monster scenes were really cool but some monsters like the giant mutated frog was laughable.
What was cool in most parts was definitely severely lacking in others. I couldn't get into this one.
