The Scarlet Alien

Still recovering from Sci-Fi Spectacular, decided to run out for a Paul (2011) matinee, Greg Mottola's send up to UFO geek culture. It's possible I was oversold because I found this to be just fine. Enjoyable but not much more. Wanted to love it but there's nothing much to love. Using Seth Rogen's voice again is big turnoff for me. Did appreciate the mystery woman. 7/10

From the library I had Patrick Hughes' Red Hill (2010) on DVD, another film I missed at Fantastic Fest but heard mixed reactions. Now I know why. Has its moments but misses several too. But I do like a modern western. 6.5/10
