    Ranking Japan’s Greatest Heroes: Godzilla

    As weird as the movie can be, it truly feels like a continuation of the original Gojira, adding Mothra to the mix and making its core values about the dangers of capitalism and experimentation much more prominent, and the eventual final battle between Gojira and Mothra's offsprings is a pretty interesting fight visually for the time.

    With this, Godzilla would be on a good path in its history just yet.

  • Death Sentence

    Death Sentence

    ★★★½

    James Wan knows what he does in his proyects, including this, showing some great style and action in the film's most chaotic events, and it even make me feel scared in the chase to the parking lot.

    Kevin Bacon moves pretty great here, easily the best character, and helps to deliver on its horror aspects or the over the top violence, like the van that split in a perfect half.

    It certainly had some detractors, like his family feeling quite one-dimensional, but Death Sentence does keep one hooked to the end.

    Great random pick from my dad.

    Evan Almighty

    ★★★

    I watched this a couple of times and on a birthday party we put it as kind of background noise, but we were all hooked up into it; before logging it, I saw the negative reaction to it, and I get ir, sometimes the jokes don't land at all, but I like it, for being a film with actual meaning instead of another cashgrab sequel, and for having more soul than most mediocre Christian films.

    Also, Morgan Freeman is one of the best representations of a powerful figure I've ever seen on media.

  • Prey

    Prey

    ★★★★

    This is the greatest the franchise has been since it's choppa days in '87, by sticking to the essential of a Predator story: two foes learning how to strike the other in a jungle environment, like Arnie did, or Danny Glover did in his street jungle.

    Prey uses its environment and time setting to it's advantage, and show off that gory violence we all know and love.

    I won't add much to it, just watch it when possible.
