Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters Spoiler-Free Review

Hey everyone, we are back with a new movie review! Today we are taking a look at Toho’s 30th Godzilla feature (and the first animated one) with Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters. Now this film was originally released in November 2017 in Japan, but only got a worldwide release this month via Netflix. We watched the English dubbed version for this review and as usual, no spoilers ahead.

Movies of 2018 I’m not Interested In

Hey everyone, I thought I’d do something a little different. Let’s be honest, the anticipated movies of 2018 are pretty straightforward. Is there any doubt that I’m excited for Infinity War, Black Panther, A Wrinkle in Time, etc., etc., etc.? I could expound my excitement for Annihilation, The Predator, or whatever the heck they’re going to call that third Cloverfield movie. But I also discovered there’s a lot of ‘big’ movies coming out that I’m just plain old not interested in. It runs a gamut between ‘meh’ and ‘kill it with fire’, and I thought this might be more fun. So let’s look at the un­-anticipated movies of 2018. I’m sure some will be obvious, others probably not so much.

2017 Movie Wrap-Up

Hello everyone, it’s that time of the year again. We’re now in 2018 so let’s give 2017 one final send-off by talking about the movies of the year. I waited a little bit to write this because there was one movie that I really needed to see again before I put everything in the final order. Now that I’ve taken care of that we can get down to this. I didn’t see that many movies this year (I have a list of 22) for a variety of reasons such as distance from theater, releases that don’t release wide enough for us to get them, general time/life/work, etc. things. There are some big releases that I haven’t seen that I wish I could have put on here but unfortunately can’t, so sorry to It, Thor: Ragnarok, Blade Runner 2049, Geostorm, and Justice League, but you don’t get to be on the list. I will be seeing them once they hit home release but I just didn’t get to them theatrically. With that said, let’s get part one started!

This Is What It’s Really About

Okay, guys, anyone who's spent any time on the Internet since Last Jedi came out knows it's been controversial. Since JR did a fantastic review, I thought maybe I'd talk about the backlash surrounding it. But that's super negative to do right before Christmas, and refuting all the complaints would be super spoilery. So I thought I'd do something a little more uplifting for the season. Get your kleenex, folks.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom First Trailer and Featurette

Twas three weeks before Christmas

And we were biding our time.

Tonight was for dinos

(next week’s all Jedi)

 

The people all waited on YouTube with care

With hopes that a trailer soon would be there

 

There’s he in his t-shirt and I in my hoodie,

Waiting and hoping it would be a goody.

When from the table there came such a tither,

‘The trailer is live, it was posted on Twitter!’

Fear and Film: A Horror Retrospective- 1920’s

And we’re back again! Its November now, but why quit a good thing? This entry was a little more difficult, I ended up watching three different films for it. I’ll talk really quickly about the other two, but our main focus will be The Phantom of the Opera, starring Lon Chaney Sr., from 1925. This will be both the first with a ‘feature length’ runtime, and the first Hollywood film I’ve reviewed for this project. So let’s get to it!
