Monsters vs. Aliens
Animated wackiness and fun is the name of the game in this one. Susan Murphy (Reese Witherspoon) is set to marry her fiancee Derek Dietl (Paul Rudd) until a meteor from another galaxy crashes to earth which turns Susan into a giant. Before long the government captures Susan and imprisons her with several other unlikely monsters/creatures of science, Dr. Cockroach (Hugh Laurie) and B.O.B. (Seth Rogen) to name a few. The future looks grim, until alien forces descend upon earth which prompts the government to call upon the services of the monsters. Funny on multiple levels that parents and kids will both appreciate and an all star cast of voices lend a lot to making this film a success. Solid animation seems crisp, and in some theatres the film is available in 3D. A great option for the family this weekend. Monsters vs. Aliens is rated PG.

The Haunting in Connecticut
Based on actual events, this ghostly and ghastly tale documents the happenings one family experienced upon moving into an old historic mansion with a grim past. Once a funeral home and base of operations for seances of epic proportions the house still has echoes of its lurid past. But how will the family manage? And, can the house be put to rest? Running only 92 minutes in length this roller coaster of scares accomplishes what it sets out to do, startles and shrieks are plentiful. If you’re up for a fright, this film is for you. The Haunting in Connecticut is rated R.
