Film #3: Skyline (2010)

Plot - Aliens come and blow shit up. The film tries to talk about other things, but then everyone blows up anyway.

Form - The film was well edited and everything, but who cares if it's just decent?

F/X - It looks exactly like every other invasion film since War of the Worlds. 

Acting - That black dude from Clueless is in the movie and he's totally killin' it. While he's alive at least. All of the white actors are either laughing awkwardly or screaming in pain.

Mise en scene - A lot of explosions.

Quotables - No.

Cool stuff - Although there's some fun visceral imagery involving human brains, most of the film is either stuff blowing up and aliens flying around shining lights. It's cool that people die though.
