    Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters

    ★★★

    "This planet can go to hell. "

    A movie with strong plotting buried in terrible (I.E. No) character work and really strange themes that stand in stark contrast with the actual situation the film is showing us.

    On an earth much like our own, Kaiju started appearing, showing Humanity that they weren't the top of the food chain, then Godzilla came along and it was enough for all of Humanity to evacuate the planet, deciding to search for another. Even…

    Darkness, Light, Darkness

    A stop motion film that preys on the inherent creepiness of the human body, the film being the slow formation of a human, with each new body part bringing a new sense of anxiety when it enters the screen.

    The setting of the piece and Soundheim's naturally dark (with a hint of…

    Mobile Suit Gundam: Char's Counterattack

    ★★★

    The end to one of the most famous anime rivalries of all time, with the stakes to match but probably not enough screen time on the main conflict.

    The Red Comet. Quattro Bajeena. Casval Rem Deikun. Char Aznable is a man of many masks, both literally and figuratively. This movie is about him dropping all but the worst aspects of all of these masks, his darkest nature coming to the forefront. His attempts to reinvent himself as the heroic Quattro…
