    Terror of Mechagodzilla

    ★★

    A little over two years since purchasing the Criterion Collection box-set that featured all of the Shōwa era Godzilla films, I have finally reached the end of the set with Terror of Mechadogdzilla, a direct sequel to Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla, the final film in the Shōwa era and legendary filmmaker Ishirō Honda’s final film before his retirement. This was the culmination of the franchise as a whole, and for some the final beacon for it too. But I’ve seen enough…

    Taken

    ★★★★

    It’s been quite a few years since I last saw Taken, and the question of whether it still holds up is mostly irrelevant. Given the myriad of Neeson-Action Movies we’ve gotten since the release of Taken, the question now is: does it hold up to his own filmography, or does it blend in with the rest of the forgettable thrillers he’s been cranking out?

    In reality, yes I think it does still hold up. Neeson was absolutely a household name…

    Top Gear: Botswana Special

    ★★★

    I don't have much of a memory for the Botswana Special of Top Gear. It played a lot on TV as I tried to catch older episodes post-2011, but I never watched it very often. In fact, I feel like this watch may well have been the only time I've watched it from start to finish.

    When quizzed about their favourite moments from Top Gear, the lads always say the moment they reach the island in the middle of the…

    Top Gear: US Special

    ★★★½

    Ah, the perks of the internet not working: one finds themselves watching regular TV for the first time in a very long time. So naturally, there's a lot of Top Gear watching.

    When it comes to the US Special, I have more of a visual memory of the DVD version over the televised broadcast. Certain musical choices are changed due to rights issues, and I always remember the DVD version more. That one is also cut down in places so…

    Spider-Man: No Way Home

    ★★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Peter Parker's identity as Spider-Man is revealed to the world, and now nowhere is safe. When the harsh reality begins to hit his friends as well, Parker seeks assistance from Doctor Strange - with universe-breaking ramifications.

    It's not a stretch to suggest that Spider-Man: No Way Home is the most anticipated film of the year, by far. The only other contenders would probably be No Time To Die or Dune, but for sheer fan anticipation, No Way Home swings ahead.…

    Two years into his crime-fighting escapade, Bruce Wayne allies himself with James Gordon to uncover a string of horrific murders tied to a mysterious individual calling himself "The Riddler".

    Last month I decided to rewatch The LEGO Batman Movie, mostly because I prefer it to The LEGO Movie from three years prior. Not just that, but I also think…
