Here’s a movie comparison you weren’t expecting to see today. Unless of course you’ve already seen it. In which case, hi there! What brings you here? Excellent, welcome. Oh, there’s a snack machine ’round the back if you’re hungry.
Right then, where were we? Ah, yes. Unexpected movie comparisons. In a new video, YouTube channel Couch Tomato makes the wild argument that The Monster Squad and Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban are actually the same movie. In the video they back up the claim with 24 side-by-side pieces of evidence.
Do they make a solid case? I’ll leave that up to you to decide. I just look for any excuse to write about The Monster Squad.
