Gimme that old time Monster
Click for IMDB including Trailer
Went with the wife and friends to see Cowboys and Aliens. It was an OK popcorn muncher. But I was disappointed since I had higher expectations of a Jon Favreau film. Where's the depth of treatment of...THE MONSTER?
So, to console myself, the next day I watched The Thing From Another World (1951). Back when men were men, women laughed at them all the time, and a monster was really the star of the show.
