    Voyage of the Rock Aliens

    ★★★

    I put this in the category of a "terrible but fun" watch. The fashion is delightfully dated. The design and effects are better than they need to be. The jokes may be hit-or-miss, but I appreciated the density and pacing. There are some bummers here: the abrupt shifts between narrative and music video are tough to take, the music is pretty horrible, and Ruth Gordon's talents seem wasted on a bit comic relief part. But, the overall package is silly…

    George Clinton kind of saved this one for me. The movie itself is unfunny and predictable. Kind of like a lame high school version of The Hangover. But I loved those scenes with P-Funk. What a band!

    I was never a fan of the game, so I didn’t go in expecting much.  I appreciated that they seemed to have some continuity with the basics of the game (special moves, gory fatalities, lots of 1-on-1 fights), but the story made no sense and I hated the acting.

    Well, that wasn’t much fun.
