After Earth wasn’t all that bad. It wasn’t great and pretty predictable but not entirely a bad movie. Although I have to say, I’m not entirely a fan of Jaden Smith as an actor… Or fan yet. So far from what I’ve seen of his work, it’s a bit too whiny.
RIPD was alright as a popcorn flick. It’s a case of the trailers making the movie appear much more fun than it really is. Again, not a seriously bad movie, just not as fun as you would have expected. Somewhere I read it was sort of like a rehash of MIB. I can see that; and MIB was more fun.
Monsters U was what you would expect for a Monsters Inc sequel (prequel). I liked it but I might not be entirely objective. I like most animations due to the creativity and the fantasy. At work, a few co-workers and I were talking about animation recently and how they couldn’t show this movie to their kids because it is too scary. Their kids are still a little too young. Although I could see why it might be scary. That centipede, bat winged, Scare Professor could give nightmares.
Of this bunch, Monsters U is probably the pick. The other two, so so, it’s a toss up.
