Ever since it was unveiled back in 2010, there's been talk of a possible sequel to "Monsters." And that's hardly a surprise: while Gareth Edwards' film wasn't a giant success, it made a very decent $5 million worldwide (plus much more on home video formats), which is an unqualified success for a film made on a miniscule budget.

One of the big successes of the 2010 indie world was "Monsters," the ultra-low budget sci-fi picture which became a sensation after it premiered at SXSW. Made on a miniscule budget, with hugely impressive effects created on an off-the-shelf computer, it followed two Americans trying to travel across an area of Central America devestated by huge alien creatures. It was an off-beat, original take on the genre, and marked the arrival of some major new talents -- and indeed, helmer Gareth Edwards was picked out to direct a new reboot of "Godzilla," which remains in development, while star Scoot McNairy has gone on to major roles in "Killing Them Softly," "Argo" and "Twelve Years A Slave."

This writer went to university for four years in Manchester, England and, as such, is still physically unable to listen to one of the seminal bands from the city, The Stone Roses. Despite only recording two albums, one of which is rubbish, the band seemingly soundtrack every bar, club and restaurant in the city, and, even as a one time fan of the band, if we go the rest of our lives without ever hearing "I Am The Resurrection" again, we'll be delighted.
