I am a newcomer here (LOL) after more than 5 months being inactive now I wanted to become alive and vigorous again here on @bitlanders hopefully I could spare some of my time being so pre-occupied with my work and with my other blogging site.
And since I wanted to regain back what I have achieved before I am here with my entry to the recent announcement made by @Micky-The-Slanted-Salerno check this LINK if you haven’t seen that special announcement for a special additional buzz bonus. I will be watching more movies every day so I could submit more movie review blogs every now and then and thereby gain more buzz bonus.
This new promotional blog topic which is ongoing is inspired by @mannythemovieguy, the multi-Emmy award-winning film critic who has always had a passion for movies. See below a video of one of his interviews to the cast of the movie "God's Not Dead"
Let me start with my first movie review, a movie my kids really enjoyed watching.
This movie "Monster Trucks" is an American comedy film produced by Paramount Animation, Nickelodeon Movies and Disruption Entertainment for Paramount Pictures. This is a bit old I mean it was released in the year 2016 and was directed by Chris Wedge who happened to be the director of the great movies Ice Age way back 2002 and Epic way back 2013 also, both I considered a very wonderful and a much watch cartoon movie.

~ MONSTER TRUCKS ~
Back to my movie of the day Monster Trucks (LOL), this movie is starred by Lucas Till, Jane Levy, Amy Ryan, Rob Lowe, Danny Glover, Barry Pepper and Holt McCallany. The movie is all about a high school student who found a monster who then lives in his truck, a truck he built from bits and pieces of scrapped cars. He befriends the monster and named him Creech. Later he found out that there are a group of people trying to get Creech away from him and he wouldn’t let those people take Creech away from him. Tripp Coley played by Lucas Till found out later that Creech has a family, that its mother and father was captured and being experimented on, so Tripp came up with a plan (his mission in this movie) to save Creech and his family with the help of his friends Jane Levy as Meredith, Thomas Lennon as Dr. Jim Dowd the scientist and Tucker Albrizzi as Sam Geldon.

In the movie, Tripp Coley saw a strange and subterranean creature in their junkyard I think that was after an accident happened nearby and eventually took care of it. Later he and his classmate Meredith found out that the creature likes drinking oil and living in his car. When they became friends He promised Creech that he will soon bring him home.
Lucas role was definitely being carried upon awesomely in this movie. So who is Lucas Daniel Till?

Dr. Jim Dowd is a scientist who is in charge of Creech’s parents in their Laboratory. He observed that these creatures are very intelligent. He also realized that it is not right to experiment on them and he would really like to send them home. That is why when he knew Tripp and Meredith are trying to save the creatures he offers them his help to save Creech’s family.
Thomas Lennon is an American actor, comedian, screenwriter, producer, and director who was born on August 9, 1970. He also appeared on the series Reno 911! and on the CBS series entitled The Odd Couple.
