    "Look at Godzilla and Rodan. They don't seem too happy being left behind."

    ★★★★½

    Everything about this movie is already mind-blowingly ridonkulous but who else wants to discuss how Rodan often roars the same as Godzilla in this movie

    Missed the last almost half hour of this because Sundance's online platform is dumb as rocks, allowing pausing during a two-hour rental stream (COME ON), but I suppose it's no wonder? It's the kind of film that would engage me as little as to push my attention towards even less meaningful tasks, although there are at least things here to appreciate.

    A film about how the experience of making and seeing movies helps us laugh in the face of crisis, whether it be a time of death or just a set-up for paranoia that's still terrifying enough to get consumers raiding supermarkets out of relentless panic.

    The perfect end to the longest and most unnerving period I've spent without the cinema since 1998-2002.
