Aliens in the AtticAliens in the Attic[Blu-ray] [Blu-ray]
So yeah, the plot isn't Shakespeare. You have a family on vacation that gets visited by some diminutive (and not too bright) aliens bent on taking over the world. This plot is very close to the same vein as the 80's movie Spaced Invaders. The difference, and it is substantial enough to keep the two movies from being similar, is where the focus is. Where Spaced Invaders put all of its attention on the wacky Martians, Aliens in the Attic puts its focus on the kids and how they deal with the invaders. For this movie it makes all the difference.
You see, the chemistry between the kids is tight. The main boy and his crazy cousins, lovelorn big sisters and a cute little sister all mesh their respective personalities into a coherent plot progression rather well. There isn't a whole lot of character development once the individual players have been established, but you don't need that much since the script capitalizes on the interactions. I'm not talking about two dimensional character clashes sort of capitalization. This movie shows a good example on how differing personalities can work together.
The acting is surprisingly good for these kids. All of them play their parts solid with nary a bad scene in the bunch.Read more ›
The scene where the kids try to call the operator on a rotary phone is akin to the new digital phone system just before you re-program all of your phone numbers in the phone again (if you are calling across the hallway you still have to punch in your area code and then the remaining seven numbers)because all of the calls are like local long distance.
