A film review, ultimately, functions to either sell the reader on the picture or to give a clear image of how the writer felt overall but I can't really do either today. This feels like one of those films that only you know about, like a childhood memory or a note you've been passed in class. Will you cry the same way I did? Will an older version of myself laugh at all the same moments where I laughed here…
In the middle of some sort of cosmically bad vibe I knew it was time to go headfirst back into the comfort of something very dear to my heart. Maybe it’s the weekend?

[crying] yes sir...
"Because all you need is love."
Got high. Threw this on. Made out with gf. Passed out 2/3rds in. Forgot how hot Tadanobu Asano is and remembered very quickly when Kakihara blew smoke out the slits in his cheeks, Nicole and I both releasing a harmonic "yooooooooo" when he did so. A lot slower than I remembered! Melancholy to match Asano's somber sadboy mood. 💜💜💜
You aren't a REAL godzilla kong fan if you love/hate/like/dislike THIS latest entry in Legendary's Monsterverse franchise starring Millie Bobby Brown as a podcast addled cospiracy freak who refuses to drink fluoride water on a quest to do ultimately very little in the quest to stop the big monster from beating up the other big monster!
Seriously though maybe it's time to shut the fuck up about who the real kaiju fans are or whatever. What a sad little dick…
