    Godzilla: King of the Monsters

    ★★

    I'm a Godzilla fan. As a child nothing dazzled me more than seeing gigantic monsters. King Kong was and still is a huge fascination of mine. I think it's because of all the heartache and emotion that plagues his demise.

    2014's Godzilla was ok. We had some decent characters, albeit shallow...but they get the job done and we get some frontended Cranston in there. And I always think less is more with the giant lizard. I remember seeing the trailer…

Director Johannes Roberts' previous outing 47 Meters Down didn't really blow my socks off, but thankfully this one delivered and what Stranger fans expect, and kicks the action up quite a bit. Bottom line...this was such a satisfying experience.

    Kinsey (Bailee Madison) and brother Luke (Lewis Pullman) are the heart and soul of this vehicle. They have such a strong…
