The makers of Bitch Slap employ just about every trick in the book (slow-mo, split screen, green screen, bad CG, flashbacks, push-up bras) except a good story. Or any story for that matter.

Monsters is a misleading title. People would be more accurate, as Monsters is basically a mumblecore movie about, you know, relationships and stuff. The giant creature action is relegated to the “B” story. The photography is good, the special effects are often sublime, and the actors are appealing. All that is, unfortunately, balanced out with some clunky dialog and ham-fisted allegory. Not quite balanced… the good outweighs the bad. Call it a “B-.”

Speaking of iTunes, here’s an explanation of that application’s “Remember Playback Position” option.
