    Godzilla: King of the Monsters

    ★★½

    Definitely benefits from repeat viewings and lowered expectations but I still struggled to pay attention any time humans were on screen.

  • The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning

    The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning

    ★★½

    Moderately entertaining if a little dull in places. As with the remake, R Lee Ermey shines and his transformation from country bumpkin to "sheriff" is one of the most interesting aspects of this story.

    Leatherface seems to be featured less here than even the previous film but at least his portrayal is a lot closer to the more emotionally conflicted Gunnar Hansen original than the Jason clone of the remake. Props to Andrew Bryniarksi for pulling that aspect off, it's just a shame he wasn't featured more.

    ★★★

    Incredibly stupid but entertaining as hell.

    White House Down

    ★★★½

    Die Hard in the White House. Dumb, fun and full of guns.

    Called both of the bad guys out in their introductory scenes but I'm not necessarily proud of that since the casting made it so obvious.

    No idea how or why James Vanderbilt's career is so varying in quality but this collaboration with Emmerich was at least a lot more successful than the bland and forgettable Independence Day: Regurgitation.
