Don’t sleep. Don’t go home. I’ll find you. – Mom.
I have a bit of a deal with my wife – when she’s working the night shift over the weekends, I try not to watch any movies that she’d also like to watch with me. So, I basically have to pick from a couple thousand of shit movies on my weekend nights alone. It’s not a big deal as I’ve seen a few that were pretty damn good. This was not one of those.
The Invasion is one of the oldest movies in my collection. I normally keep my Media Browser library sorted by date – newest to oldest – and watch stuff that I’ve added over the past month or two. A lot gets pushed to obscurity, just like this one did. However, this particular weekend I decided to mix things up a bit and start browsing backwards through my oldest movies.
The Invasion is a remake of the classic 1978 film Invasion of the Body Snatchers. Unfortunately (?), I have not seen that one. It has to be better than this. We’ve got 007 (Daniel Craig) playing some kind of CDC scientist and Nicole Kidman is looking like blow-up sex doll. Lay off the Botox already. The movie itself is just played out plain stupid. It’s really ruined me from even wanting to see the original version. I don’t remember if I even finished this as I can’t remember how it ended. I just remember it being extremely corny.
