Add This To Your Netflix Queue: Monsters vs Aliens

Or go see it in theaters now, because that’s where it’s at.

I’m not big on animated movies, but this one is good.  The premise is goofy, but what cartoon movie isn’t goofy?  Seth Rogen makes the whole movie.  His character, Bob (the blue blob) is hilarious. 

Basically, the movie is about a woman who gets hit by a meteor and is morphed into a giant.  A secret agency of the government captures her and puts her with the other monsters (Insectosaurus is the best, and Bob is a close second).  An alien attacks earth, and mankind’s only hope is the monsters.  The rag tag team of mutants (eventually) defeat the aliens, and Susan learns that her identity doesn’t need to be tied to another person (her loser poser of a boyfriend… who’s a weather guy).

What I loved about this movie is that I could totally see the church in it.  This rag tag band of monsters, who no one else sees any use for, have the greatest mission on earth–to save mankind.  And they do it together, as a community.  That’s the church:  a rag tag band of ragamuffins with the greatest mission on earth, to save mankind–not by defeating an alien, but by introducing people to Jesus.  Our weaknesses are our greatest strengths because Jesus is glorified through them.  No matter how tough the battle gets, we have a mission to accomplish.

If you haven’t seen it, here’s the trailer (make sure to watch it in HQ):

    Oh, well – now I know what I’m going to do with the kiddos Saturday! (Even though I must resign my self to the fact that my 11 year old will no doubt be saying “What the flagnog?” for the next month or so.)

    I love your analogy! Awesome. Also, could you please spell your name phonetically for me? Every time I see it, I read it as Aaron Saucer-fly. I’m guessing that is not correct?

      Think Teddy Roosevelt: “Walk softlyand carry a big stick.” “Softly”, but without the “t”. Sof-lee.

      Although Saucer-fly is cool… but So-fly is much cooler.
