    King Kong vs. Godzilla

    ★★★½

    English version is okay. Really great for beginners to the series and a goofy fun movie, but it loses some of the punching political satire that the original has.

  • Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

    Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

    ★★★★

    What a great way to adapt The Master of Kung Fu. The Ten Rings are sooooo much cooler here. Great martial arts action. Tony Lueng showcases his amazing talent in Hollywood. I am IN LOVE with the mystical side of Marvel Comics and this was AWESOME to see adapted.

  • Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack

    Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack

    ★★★★

    Politically gripping Godzilla film by the director of the Gamera Trilogy from the 1990s, Shusuke Kaneko. Godzilla is manifested by the souls of the dead from WWII, and Godzilla enacts their wrath upon Japan, as their people have forgotten the serious and horrific actions done during the Pacific Conflict. Packed with amazing practical effects work, an absolute banger of a score from Kow Otani (Shadow of the Colossus soundtrack), and much more, this really does live up to the kaiju…

  • Candyman

    Candyman

    ★★★★½

    An artful, story-driven thriller that encapsulates pain and suffering and how it's immortalized through art and culture. Perfect way to acknowledge the massively underrated 1992 original, build off of it, and present something for 2021.

    Stunning cinematography, a flawless musical score, and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II's killer performance truly made this film one of the best horror movies to come out in recent years.

    It's REAL good.

  • Godzilla vs. Hedorah

    Godzilla vs. Hedorah

    ★★★★½

    A psychedelic masterpiece that turns 50 years old this year. Godzilla must ally himself with humanity to take on an alien monster that grows stronger with Earth's pollution. Hedorah has little appearances outside this film, but has influenced the franchise going forward with his multiple forms gimmick being used in 1995's Godzilla Vs. Destoroyah, 2016's Shin Godzilla, and even currently with this year's Godzilla: Singular Point. He'd be tremendously relevant right now with the urgent push to address climate change, but sadly, Hedorah remains on the sidelines. Hope that changes one day.

    Tokyo Drifter

    ★★★★★

    I love everything about this film. The gorgeous colors and cinematography, the western influences at play being parodied, and the overall energy provided. Never thought a car entering an incinerator and compactor to a song about a lonely wanderer would be so amazingly artistic.

    The perfect yakuza film, dare I say.

  • War Of The God Monsters

    War Of The God Monsters

    ultraman stock footage spliced into a narratively confused nihilistic journey into existentialism


    haha monster go roar

  • The Suicide Squad

    The Suicide Squad

    Nice job DC! The Suicide Squad is heartfelt yet still gruesomely hilarious at the same time. Refreshing to see a good R-Rated comic book film in the 2020s too. Easily Gunn's best work yet.

  • Ultraman Sorta vs. Godzilla Starring Matt Frank: The Movie

    Ultraman Sorta vs. Godzilla Starring Matt Frank: The Movie

    fun fan film but Matt Frank got way too political telling Godzilla about corporate tax evasion

  • Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard

    Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard

    Morgan Freeman said "Motherfucker", and that's all I've ever wanted to hear from this world.

  • Wrath of Man

    Wrath of Man

    ★★★½

    Fun little Jason Statham thriller. First Guy Ritchie film!

    It was VERY refreshing seeing legit opening credits, otherwise it was just 2 hours of WHODUNIT w/your favorite Transporter. Entertaining and stylish.
