The Cloverfield Paradox Review
I am not a football fan whatsoever. I use the Superbowl as a way to get together with family and/or friends who I don’t get to see too often, eat some good food, and have a good time. With that said, the only thing I ever really remember about the big game is a handful of worthy commercials. One commercial from last year’s event that sticks out most clearly is the announcement/trailer for Julius Onah’s The Cloverfield Paradox.
Godzilla Team Review
I know there are plenty of you guys out there that absolutely loathe reboots. Especially for films that have already received a reboot once before. I, on the other hand, welcome them and for the most part, keep an open mind about them until I’ve actually seen the finished product. Some turn out awful, some are just okay, and some are outstanding. Gareth Edwards’ foray into the most famous kaiju’s territory has proven to be a breath of fresh air [...]
Godzilla: Final Wars Review
Director Ryûhei Kitamura’s Godzilla: Final Wars is more of that giant green baddy stomping around and smashing everything in sight. Familiar monsters return, as well as a new troublemaker, Monster X.
This film has one thing random that stuck out for me… UFC veteran Don Frye as Douglas Gordon! That might not be as exciting to you as it was to me, but I got a good giggle out of it. It’s probably of no surprise to you, if you [...]
Godzilla: Tokyo S.O.S. Review
While I’m not overly fond of the kaiju films, every once in a while I can catch one that doesn’t leave me groaning at the fact that I’m watching a guy in a suit pretend to be a giant monster. I have never really been a big Godzilla fan and I couldn’t even really say that I disliked them because I NEVER gave them a chance. I suppose I’m stubborn because it has taken nearly 30 years for me to [...]
Godzilla vs. Destoroyah Review
The last Godzilla film I watched and reviewed for you guys was the 1972 entry, Godzilla on Monster Island. Boy, what a difference 23 years makes! Still keeping intact everything that was great about the 70’s monster films, Takao Okawara’s Godzilla vs. Destoroyah brings a whole new level of terror to the Toho universe.
A nuclear reaction in Japan’s waters has caused a new and improved, radioactive Godzilla to emerge. As much of a catastrophe as this is, Godzilla [...]
Gamera: The Giant Monster Review
While the Toho company was already on their sixth movie in the Godzilla franchise by 1965, the Daiei Motion Picture Company decided it was their time to get into the giant monster game, as well. Noriaki Yuasa’s Gamera was the first of what would become another iconic Japanese monster franchise in the years to follow.
During the Cold War, an unknown country’s aircraft is shot down by American pilots, after refusing to identify themselves. Due to the explosion caused by [...]
