Movie Review: ‘Godzilla: King of the Monsters’

June 4, 2019 at 1:44 pm | Posted in Movies, Reviews, scifi/fantasy | Leave a comment

If you like watching giant monsters fighting each other and wrecking cities, then Godzilla: King of the Monsters delivers. Godzilla, Mothra, Rodan, and Ghidorah all get some serious action in this movie as they fight each other for dominance of the world while all the tiny humans run for their lives or get smashed to pieces. But there are humans in this movie, and they do get a lot of screen time. Thankfully it’s a great cast of memorable B-list actors who keep the entire film entertaining and interesting. Don’t expect a super intelligent, deep movie, however, if you’re here for fun, you’re in luck.

One thing I liked about Godzilla: King of the Monsters is that it builds off of both Gareth Edwards Godzilla movie and Kong: Skull Island. There’s no erasure of the previous films and they’re all integrated into one narrative universe. This film even builds on the story to setup the next film in the franchise, King Kong vs. Godzilla. While you only get a glimpse of Kong in this movie, there is plenty of screen time for the other monsters, even some of the monsters other than the big four who get top billing. They integrate the whole Monarch group whose monitoring and studying the monsters with the idea of a hollow earth theory, and the idea that these giant monsters somehow help bring balance to the planet despite all the destruction they cause. By using those other films to help develop the story, it adds some serious momentum for the world their building. And as a fan of all three films, I’m really enjoying what they’re doing.

People have been eagerly anticipating the Vanity Fair cover for The Rise of Skywalker, and it’s finally arrived with two versions and a slew of new set photos. There’s some nice tidbits hidden in their article, but interestingly enough they’re all in the captions for the pictures. Here’s the big takeaways.

  • The desert planet is Pasaana (not Tatooine, not Jakku).
  • The natives of Pasaana are the Aki-Aki (the tentacle face aliens).

Movie Review: ‘Avengers: Endgame’

April 27, 2019 at 10:50 am | Posted in Movies, Reviews | 1 Comment

Eleven years in the making, over the course of 22 films, Avengers: Endgame brings the satisfying conclusion to an epic event. There’s laughs, there’s emotional moments that might make you teary eyed, and there’s the end and beginning of story arcs for some of our favorite characters. With three hours of cinematic content, Endgame delivers.

Keeping this spoiler free, it’s amazing what Marvel was able to accomplish. I mean think about it – 22 movies. That’s almost as much as the entire James Bond franchise (26 films) to build up and create a cinematic climax for the Marvel superheroes. Through that decade of film making, they introduced us to characters, assembled them into the Avengers, and pitted them against threats that put the fate of the world at risk. With Endgame, the universe has been dealt a blow by the most powerful threat yet – Thanos. Going into this movie, the Avengers have already lost. Thanos, the badguy, won. And yet the battle isn’t over, not while superheroes still exist. Continue Reading Movie Review: ‘Avengers: Endgame’…

Movie Review: ‘Shazam’

April 24, 2019 at 6:35 am | Posted in DC Entertainment, Movies, Reviews | Leave a comment

It took me a while, but I finally went to see Shazam!. I’m glad I caught it while it was still in the theater because this movie was fun. A lot of fun. The story was great, the characters were great, the villain was portrayed excellently by Mark Strong and they even did a fantastic job with the monster designs. It was a solid movie all around and it had me wondering, “when was the last time I saw a super hero movie this good?”

Of course, there are no shortage of super hero movies these days. With Marvel and DC both cranking out comic book films, and other non-affiliated films joining in, there is hardly a season of the year where there isn’t one on the screen. Shazam‘s direct competition was Captain Marvel. While Marvel won that one in terms of box office money, I’d easily say Shazam! was a better movie. The writing and flow of the story was just plain better. I also enjoyed it a lot more than Aquaman or Ant-Man and the Wasp. It’s certainly not going to approach something like Avengers: Endgame, but that’s not expected. Continue Reading Movie Review: ‘Shazam’…

Movie Review: ‘Pet Semetary’

April 6, 2019 at 8:01 pm | Posted in Movies, Reviews | Leave a comment

The remake of Pet Sematary is interesting. On one hand, it’s a remake of the original, which was actually a really good movie. On the other hand, it’s a different take on the story. The plot elements play out differently enough that this is a different experience. In that way, it’s also made specifically for those who have seen the original as some of the big moments are deliberately played out the same, then twist in a different direction in order to surprise those viewers.

For horror fans, it’s an enjoyable flick. The casting is great and everyone does a good job with their parts. Especially Jeté Laurence who plays the daughter, Ellie. There’s a good, creepy resonance throughout the film and it stays on track pretty well. It doesn’t rely on jump scares, but instead builds creepy scenes to spook you out. The ending fits in with that overall theme to make a good horror experience. If you haven’t seen the original, and you see this one first, I imagine you’ll enjoy it a lot. I’m going to go into spoilers from here, so stop at your own peril. Continue Reading Movie Review: ‘Pet Semetary’…
