  • Sorry to Bother You

    Sorry to Bother You

    ★★★½

    While I don't always love them, I appreciate a movie that is smarter than me. When I am done, I am not entirely sure what I've seen and I have to read about it to get a better foundation before I can move into understanding. And then I need to watch it again.

    Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla

    ★★★★

    Excluding the original (which is its own thing) Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla is the zenith of the Shōwa era.

    The series - and possibly director Jun Fukuda - found something in Godzilla vs. Gigan. One of my favourite shots of Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla is of Godzilla in the foreground, stumbling amongst flames and smoke, as Mechagodzilla stands unscathed in the background.

    From the start of the series, Godzilla has seemed invincible. "What could harm a creature created by an atomic blast?"…
