Righto, it’s Kristen Wiig everybody, so sit right down and bring your laughing gear, because this is bound to be a hoot a minute.

Sometimes, in this game, you will watch a movie and really come away with little or nothing to say about it. Just sometimes, you want to watch something and not feel like you should pass judgement or comment on the thing. It’s not normally a good sign, as it usually means it hasn’t raised your hackles enough to rant about how utterly dreadful it was, or provided enough moments that you want to share gushingly with the world with regards to its sheer shiny wonderfulness.
When ‘The Fourth Kind’ was released, the film opened with a very solemn looking Milla Jovovich explaining how the film was based on true events, re-enacted for the benefit of entertainment. It involved the very questionable video testimony of ‘victims’ of alien abduction under hypnosis, in order to retrieve those memories that had been apparently locked away by forces unknown. Realistic? Who would know?
