Plot: The tiny fur ball aliens that will eat anything or anyone set their sights on a Los Angeles apartment tower.

My rating: 5.5/10

Will I watch it again? No.

The second film was my favorite then one, four (because it's in space) and this one. The biggest thing it has going for it is some 16 year old punk ass bitch who thinks he's going to make it in Hollywood, Leonardo DiCaprio.  He looks so damn young, like a child.  Too bad he couldn't catch a break.  I think this was his last movie or something. Anyway, this one's got more kids in it than the others put together. I guess they're really going for that PG-13 audience.  It's OK but nothing special.  The critters do some neat things, get set on fire, hang out in toilets and so on but there's really not much else they're capable of so this franchise was getting thin at this point.  That's probably the biggest reason for getting them in space for the next one which isn't good, either.  The Newline DVD has a nice anamorphic widescreen transfer with the only extras being anamorphic widescreen trailers for all four films.  Commentaries wouldn't have hurt for these.  You know, for the fans.  Still, I am impressed that they bothered to release them as a set and with proper transfers.  I'm happy.  Can you believe that tagline on the poster?  "Now they're ready to do some real damage".  Really?  To an apartment building?  That's the next step in world domination?  Whatever.
