Godzilla: King of the Monsters

Just a head’s up: I’ve never been a Godzilla fan, and up until the 1998 American version with Mathew Broderick, the only Godzilla movie I had ever seen was 1964’s Mothra vs Godzilla. So… What I liked: How much my Daughter enjoyed it (more on that later). Mothra! She looked badass, as did the otherContinue reading “Godzilla: King of the Monsters”

Rampage

Liked: Fully embraces the silliness of it’s concept in a light-hearted and fun way. Based on a video game I played a lot growing up. The banter between the characters is also fun.

The action in this movie is fantastic. HOWEVER, there isn’t a lot of action in this movie at all. Please note: this is more of a spy-drama than an action-thriller. The movie moves extremely slow and is told through pure flashbacks. And I was very bored until the last 3rd of the movie (which givesContinue reading “Atomic Blonde”
