  • Shin Godzilla

    Shin Godzilla


    A swing and a miss from Anno. I understand the appeal, it’s Godzilla in the 21st century. However, I’ve never seen a more boring and lazy way of handling it. The effects and action are cool but everything else comes off as dull and messy.

  • The Highwaymen

    The Highwaymen


    its like John Lee Hancock tried to make Green Book and Bonnie and Clyde
