Sym-Bionic Titan (2010) (TV)

From IMDb: “Three young alien beings with the ability to form a giant robotic warrior attempt to blend into suburbia, all while battling the tyrannical forces that ravaged their home world.” What I liked: A forgotten gem from master animator Genndy Tartakovsky, who I’ve mentioned before when reviewing his latest show, Primal. Paul Rudish andContinue reading “Sym-Bionic Titan (2010) (TV)”

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. Hey, a bunch of monsters beating each other up! Better looking special effects than Avengers: Infinity War. Good pacing, never feels slow.Continue reading “Rampage”

Shin Godzilla

I wouldn’t call myself a “fan” of Godzilla or the movies. I think the concept is cool, and the character is cool, but I don’t rush out to see or rent movies based on him. Having said that… There’s a new look to the creature, and I really enjoyed it. Feels like something more realistic.Continue reading “Shin Godzilla”

Ducktales (tv) (2017)

First things first: I haven’t watched the original “Ducktales” cartoon in DECADES. Sometimes, things like movies, cartoons and music don’t hold up to our cynical adult views, and it’s best to leave them in the past with our youthful innocence. But that doesn’t mean you can’t turn that thirst for nostalgia into a much more richContinue reading “Ducktales (tv) (2017)”

Kong: Skull Island

– Genre mashups are hard to pull off successfully. Action-horror hybrids (like Underworld and the Resident Evils) and action-comedies (like the 21 Jump Street series) are constantly being churned out, but it’s usually just those two. Horror-comedies tend tend to age better, but studios don’t make those very much. This movie is a war-action-horror-comedy &Continue reading “Kong: Skull Island”

Voltron: Legendary Defender (tv)

– a remake of the mid-80’s cartoon “Voltron: Defender of the Universe”, which is itself an adaptation of the early-80’s “Beast King GoLion” cartoon from Japan (didja’ get all that?). – There’s two seasons available on Netflix now. – Speaking of the seasons: each one starts of weak, but get so much better towards theContinue reading “Voltron: Legendary Defender (tv)”
