Laughing during an alien invasion movie is nothing new. I mean, my sides are still hurting from "Battleship." But laughing intentionally during an alien invasion has its place in the annals of movie history, as well.
Upon reflection, the aliens should bring with them the full spectrum of emotion. (Along with those dry ice cream squares.) Beings from distant stars may be just like us.

Welcome back to Junkfood Cinema; even our coach potatoes are fried and covered in gravy. You have flopped yourself down on to the Internet’s second most comfy food-based movie column; damn you, Lay-z-Boy’s Overstuffed Film Blog.

The nice-guy actor-producer is always quick to credit his team when asked about the success of TV’s No. 1 series. In fact, he lets it be known, he doesn’t think about himself and the rest of the cast and crew in terms of star and supporting players: “I don’t see myself in life that way. I know how to do the team thing,” explains the one-time UCLA quarterback.
“Everyone has a say, everyone gets to speak their minds. Everything is out in the open. If there is a problem, we talk about it and deal with it, so it’s a pretty rare way to work. »
