Movie Review: Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019)

WE GOT A HOLLYWOOD BUDGET MONSTER MASH FEATURING CLASSIC KAIJU, HOW COULD ONE NOT BE EXCITED ABOUT IT. *Calms down*. So let’s talk about this movie.

Ladies and gents… “Godzilla: King of the Monsters”.

When multiple ancient beasts awake from their slumber, the crypto-zoological agency Monarch have to find a way to stop them. Be it on their own or with the help of the titanic lizard known as Godzilla. Let’s cut to the fucking chase, this plot isn’t deep or nuanced. In the moments where it tries developing the human element of the story, it’s kinda dull. But whenever it’s about these ancient creatures having it out for each other, it’s a fucking blast. So plot-wise it’s a bit of a mixed bag. I mean, no one comes to a monster movie for plot, but when there’s a lot of time spent trying to develop it, it can get a bit distracting. So overall… mixed bag.

The characters in this… yeah, I didn’t care. Again, they tried giving them some development, but in the end it’s kind of shallow and cliched. And the cast does a fine enough job with their performances. There isn’t anyone here that I’d say is bad, just some who are better than others. My favorite was probably Charles Dance, who always had a bit of a self-aware glint in his eye, which made him kinda fun to watch whenever he showed up. The rest of the cast, including people like Kyle Chandler, Ken Watanabe, Vera Farmiga, Millie Bobby Brown, Thomas Middleditch, Ziyi Zhang, Bradley Whitford, Sally Hawkins, and various other actors was good. They all played it very straight, but no one was bad.

The score for the movie was composed by Bear McCreary, and I loved it. A lot of big, bold brass, a lot of panicky strings, some chorals… it all fit incredibly well with the kaiju calamity going on throughout the movie. And while I won’t spoil which, some of the tracks are absolute treats for… various reasons. Damn good stuff.

The movie was directed and co-written by Michael Dougherty, who I think did a great job with it. He has a great sense of energy and pacing, which keeps the moving driving along, never really getting boring and too slow at any point. And like with Gareth Edwards before him, he knows how to convey the scale of all the shit that goes on. And credit to the visual effects team for really bringing these creatures to life. The detail, the movement, it all looks fantastic. And man, the cinematography by Lawrence Sher is breathtaking. Some truly awe-inspiring shots exist in this movie. And when it isn’t breathtaking, it still looks quite good. All the technical aspects really come together wonderfully. Especially during the monster action, which I had a ton of fun with.

The movie just came out, so this data will change a bit over time. But as of writing, the movie has gotten quite the mixed reception. On Rotten Tomatoes it has a 38% positive rating. On Metacritic it has a score of 47/100. And on imdb.com it has a score of 7,7/10.

Look, this isn’t one of the greatest movies ever made. But I still had a lot of fun with “Godzilla: King of the Monsters”. It has a mixed bag plot, meh characters, really good performances, fantastic music, and fantastic writing/directing/cinematography/visual effects/action. Time for my final score. *Ahem*. My final score for “Godzilla: King of the Monsters” is an 8,74/10. So while flawed, it’s still worth buying.

My review of “Godzilla: King of the Monsters” is completed.

Ooooooh no. They say he’s got to go, GO GO GODZILLA!

My most anticipated movies of 2019

Hello and happy new year, guys! I’m back from my… two day break. Okay, I wasn’t gone for long, but I’m excited to be writing again. New year, new opportunities, new movies! And it’s that last one that we’re talking about today, which shouldn’t come as a surprise to you guys, since this blog is mostly built on movie stuff. So since the year just started, I think it’s only appropriate to talk about some movies that I’m excited for this year. Will all of them be amazing? Probably not. But I’m just looking forward to watching them all, and I thought I’d share some of them here with you today. A few stipulations for both of us here.

Number 1: Please be respectful. I’m asking you to have the exact same opinions as me, I’m fine with disagreement. Just don’t be a dick about it. I’m all for friendly discussion, please feel free to share your thoughts in the comments. Just be nice. This is a friendly space, yo.

Number 2: I’m not gonna talk about movies that had limited releases in 2018 that then get worldwide releases in early 2019. This is for those that have their first release in 2019. Understood? Cool.

Number 3: These are not ranked. These are just a bunch of movies I’m looking forward to a fair bit.

That should be it. Let’s get into the movies.

Glass.

First movie on the list is the first one I’ll probably see in the cinema this year… which would be pretty much unlikely a few years ago. A January movie by M. Night Shyamalan? Ew. But this is something I am genuinely excited about. So spoilers for previous Shyamalan movies, I guess. In 2000, he gave us “Unbreakable”, and it was amazing. In 2017, he gave us “Split”, and it was really good. And at the end of “Split”, it was revealed that it was a secret sequel to “Unbreakable”, which blew my fucking mind. And now we get the culmination of those two movies with “Glass”, and I am really hyped.

Avengers: Endgame

Yes, I talk about a lot of superhero movies. And yes, I am aware that a lot of people are either sick of or just don’t care about them. But you can’t deny that what Marvel has done with their cinematic universe is really impressive. And now we get the ending to it… sort of. It’s the sequel to 2018’s “Infinity War”, and it will be the end for a lot of these actors in this universe. It’s kind of bittersweet. Bring on the endgame.

Captain Marvel

Another superhero origin. This one starring Brie Larson. She’s a good actor. This looks pretty good. Has a stellar cast. It’ll be fun.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters

I am a fan of the 2014 “Godzilla” movie, so I was already excited for a sequel. Then it was revealed that some classic monsters would be involved in it, which got me even more excited. Then this trailer came out and showcased some gorgeous imagery, and it got me even more hyped. So yeah, this is one of the biggest ones for me this year.

Star Wars Episode IX
It’s “Star Wars”. The end of this new trilogy. It’s “Star Wars”. How could I not be excited? “STAR WARS”.

Spider-Man: Far From Home
I am a huge Spidey-fan, been for most of my life. And this is a sequel to “Spider-Man: Homecoming”, which I liked a lot. Tom Holland is a fantastic Spider-Man. So I’m excited. Plus, Jake Gyllenhaal.

John Wick: Chapter 3

“John Wick” was one of the biggest surprises of 2014. “John Wick: Chapter 2” was a great sequel. And in 2019 we’ll get the third part in this series. The hype for this one is real.

Knives Out
No footage. No on-set images. All we have is a good director, a star-studded cast, and the vague premise of a murder mystery. And that is enough to intrigue me. Let’s go.

In the Shadow of the Moon
Like with “Knives Out”, we know practically nothing about this. But at least “Knives Out” has a vague premise of what it could be… this one on the other hand doesn’t even have that. So how could I be excited? Well, it has several good actors involved, and it’s directed by Jim Mickle, who I’m a big fan of. I’ll be supporting him any way I can.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

What do you get if you take one of the most star-studded casts even assembled and combine it with the mind of Quentin Tarantino? You get “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”. Anything that Tarantino makes, I’m already excited for. But add all those cast members and an interesting setting, and you most likely have my money as well.

Lucy in the Sky
*Starts humming The Beatles*. Oh shit, you’re still here. Right, so what’s this? It’s a sci-fi movie, starring the likes of Natalie Portman, Dan Stevens, Jon Hamm, and Zazie Beets, and it’s written/directed by Noah Hawley, who brought us two of my favorite shows; “Fargo” and “Legion”. That’s all I need. Bring on the weirdness.

The Irishman
Martin Scorsese. Robert De Niro. Joe Pesci. Al Pacino. Bobby Cannavale. Harvey Keitel. Jesse Plemons. Excited yet?

Jojo Rabbit

A World War 2 satire from Taika Waititi? With said Kiwi playing Adolf Hitler? And a good cast surrounding him? Yes please, hell yeah, this is interesting.

So those were a bunch of movies I’m looking forward to. I’m sure more will be revealed throughout the year, but these are my current picks. But I also wanna hear from you guys. What movies are you excited for? Leave any and all answers in the comments!
Have a good one!

“Kong: Skull Island” Comic Con Trailer

I know that I am spamming stuff at you, but I can’t help it… Comic Con brings us a lot of interesting shit. SO LET’S DO THIS!

So we now have a trailer for the upcoming “Kong: Skull Island”, a sort of reboot of the classic “King Kong” franchise. From the producers of the 2014 “Godzilla” reboot, a movie that I really enjoy. And this trailer makes the movie look like it could be as cool as “Godzilla” and probably even more intense. Because now we don’t have the entire military and some giant EMP-based bugs… but we have a small-ish group of people, consisting of Brie Larson, John Goodman, Samuel L. Jackson, and Tom Hiddleston who looks quite ab it like Leon S. Kennedy from “Resident Evil 4” (the game, not the movie). And it’s these people, plus some expendable folks, against tribe members and a giant motherfuckin’ gorilla who we only see bits of. Which is great, because I don’t have to see Kong in all of his awesome glory until the movie comes out. But yeah, this movie looks intense and badass and I am definitely hyped for it. Great trailer. “Kong: Skull Island” is set for a March 2017 release.

So what are your thoughts on this? Are you excited about “Kong: Skull Island”? And what are your thoughts on the 2014 “Godzilla” movie? Leave any and all answers in the comments.
Have a good one and enjoy the trailer!

My Favorite Scenes: Godzilla: Final Wars – Godzilla Vs. Zilla

Well hello there, ladies and gentlemen of all ages and colors and welcome back to “My Favorite Scenes”, the series I sporadically do when I feel like it. For new(ish) people who may not know and can’t do a simple analysis of a fucking title, this is the series where I show a scene from a movie or TV-show and try to briefly explain why I like that scene. Now… onto the main show.

So for this edition of “My Favorite Scenes” I’d like to share one of the most gratifying scenes in any movie I have ever seen. Which is weird because it’s not even a minute long, but still reamains one of the most memorable and satisfying moments in cinematic history. The movie in question is “Godzilla: Final Wars”, and it’s basically an all-out monster brawl between Godzilla and pretty much every monster from his filmography ever. And this might be the best out of all the moments. In the scene we’re talking about, Godzilla (AKA the real one) faces off against the shitty American version (named Zilla by fans). And by faces off with it I mean totally fucking destroying it by tail whipping it into the Sydney opera house and giving it the good ol’ atomic breath. I know it sounds like I spoiled it, but honestly, it’s still fantastic to see even if you know what happened. And I honestly don’t mind the choice of music for the scene (Sidenote: not edited in by a fan, but by the film crew). The song in question is “We’re All to Blame” by Sum 41 and I think it actually kinda works. Just… just watch it because it’s just one of the greatest things ever.
Enjoy!

Top 10 Heartbreaking movie deaths

Wut wut
How’s it going guys? Today it is time for something I rarely do on the blog (this is the second time actually) and that something is a countdown/Top List. Why did I decide to do one now of all times? Well there is no other reason than me just feeling like making it. So please don’t be too harsh with me in the end since I am not overly used to these things. But enough of that! Time to introduce the list (Which I technically already did if you loked at the title of the post). So yes, my first real Top 10 will be about deaths in movies. But no just any old deaths, oh no! These are deaths of characters who played a fairly big/important role in a movie. So if you didn’t get it already, this list will be filled with spoilers for different movies. So read this at your own risk. And just to make it clear, this list is based on my opinion and is not representative of the entire population. So if there is some heartbreaking death you’d like to mention, make you own list and/or comment on this post. So without further ado, let’s get to it!

Ladies and gentlemen… My Top 10 Heartbreaking deaths in movies!

Number 10: Drive (2011).
wallls.com-35099-Drive

Starting off at number 10 is the fantastic 2011 crime-drama “Drive” (Which happens to be my 2nd favorite movie). In this movie we see Ryan Gosling as a stunt driver with a mysterious past and problems he gets involved with. And since I started the list with that you would probably assume I am gonna talk about Ryan Gosling dying (Which he for the record does not do). No, I am talking about a death that happened late in the movie. And while the death itself isn’t that shocking or too extreme for your heart, it is still worth a mention. I am of course talking about the death of the Driver’s mentor and father figure Shannon (Bryan Cranston). The reason the death affected me a bit is not only because the guy was played by Bryan Cranston, but also because he was a very likeable guy. Yes, he kind of used the Driver to get money and stuff, but he was still a witty and just likeable guy. And seeing him getting killed by Bernie (Albert Brooks) was kind of sad. And therefore he gets a spot on this list.

Number 9: In Bruges (2008).
in_bruges_1024x768

Next up is the black comedy “In Bruges” which is a movie that really shows how good of an actor Colin Farrell actually is. This movie is one that really surprised me with not only how good it was, but also how much drama there also was considering the trailer made it look a lot more comedic than it was. But in general I thought it was a great movie. But the death we are talking about today is the very last one in the movie where the character of Ray (Colin Farrell) gets gunend down by his boss Harry (Ralph Fiennes) in the movie’s climax. Why this is so heartbreaking is because just like Shannon in “Drive”, Ray is just a likeable guy. The reason he is being gunned down is because at a previous job he fucked up and basically is too guilt-stricken to be of use to Harry. And I admit, I didn’t really cry at Ray’s unfortunate death but it still got to me and is therefore on this list.

Number 8: Blood Diamond (2006)
diamond

The next death we have on the list is from the 2006 action-drama “Blood Diamond”. And this time, like the last entry it is the main character who dies. After aquiring the titular Blood Diamond (Explanation: A diamond which has gotten naturally colored red(ish) and happens to be worth a lot), our characters Danny Archer (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Solomon Vandy (Djimon Hounsou) runs toward a helicopter to get their asses out of there. But Danny feels that he will die soon and should stay behind. So Solomon gets to the chopper while Danny lies on a hill with a beautiful view and a final call to his love interest Maddy (Jennifer Connelly). And so Danny falls asleep on top of that hill, with a  beautiful view, knowing he had done something good. This is a death that got to me a little more, not only because of Danny being a pretty awesome character, but also because his final scene was built up in such a way that made it a hell of a lot more beautiful. Great movie with a beautiful and heartbreaking death scene in the end.

Number 7: Unforgiven (1992).

At the number 7 spot is the kind of underrated early 1990’s western “Unforgiven”, directed by and starring Clint Eastwood. Why do I call it “kind of underrated”? Because while it did get a lot of cred as a good movie, I feel like it was even better than most people says it is… both as a western and as a movie in general. But that is not the point. The point here is to see who died and made an impact on me doing so! And that is the character of Ned (Morgan Freeman) being tortured with a whip, killed and put up on display by the evil Sheriff Bill Daggett (Gene Hackman). This is not easy to take since he wasn’t just a well-written and great character, but also because he was tortured and put on display as his old friend William Munny (Clint Eastwood) sees his corpse. This really hit me because of all those things and yes, because I like Morgan Freeman. But this is so well set up and just shows how brutal the west (especially corrupt Sheriffs) could be.

Number 6: Harry Potter & The Order of the Phoenix (2007)

Oh yeah, you know what I’m talking about. That really heartbreaking death in the 5th installment in the “Harry Potter” franchise. The one that shocked everybody. That’s right… HARRY POTTER (Daniel Radcliffe)! Nah, just kidding. As you may have expected I am of course talking about the death of Sirius Black (Gary Oldman). Sure, he isn’t one of those characters that got super much screen time but he was still awesome! Especially since they gave him a little more development in this one and made him really fucking likeable. And then they had a really cool fight scene between Harry and his friends with the titular “Order of the Phoenix” against the Death Eaters. And then when Harry and Sirius got the upper hand against Lucius Malfoy (Jason Isaacs), Sirius gets killed by Bellatrix Lestrange (Helena Bonham Carter). This moment came as a surprise and really got me. This moment really pulled at my heartstrings and actually made me tear up a little bit.

Number 5: Tombstone (1993)
tombstoneokcorral

If you have not seen this movie yet then not only are you risking getting spoiled but it will also make me wonder why you have not seen this movie yet. It is pretty fucking amazing! Anyway, in this movie we follow gunslinger Wyatt Earp (Kurt Rusell) as he tries to bring law and order to the town of Tombstone. Sure, he gets help from his brothers as well but thoses are not the interesting ones here, oh no. The interesting character (and dying one) is Doc Holliday (Val Kilmer). I admit, I kinda saw the death coming the entire movie but still felt emotion when it happened. And how did I know he would die? Because the guy had tuberculosis and back then it was pretty incurable. But the reason it still left and emotional scar on me is because it was really well set up, really well-acted and just really got to me. In the final scene we see the friendship between Doc and Wyatt as they play cards as Doc is getting ready to leave this world. This scene realyl brought a tear to my eye and that is why it is on this list.

Number 4: Terminator 2 – Judgment Day (1991).
1366x768_Terminator 2

This entry on the list might seem a bit weird, but hear me out. The impact the death I will be talking about left is to me one of the most surprising impacts ever. I never thought I would be emotionally scared by a robot played by Arnold Schwarzenegger being lowered into lava after shooting Robert Patrick into the very same lava. Also, Arnold giving us a thumbs up as he is lowered is just fucking awesome. But when I saw this for the first time I cried like a little baby. The second time I cried a little less (maybe because I knew it was going to happen), but it still means it left an impact on me. And that is a thumbs up in my book!

Number 3: One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (1975)
Movies-ジャック·ニコルソンは、カッコーの巣の上で-768x1280

This is one of the most perfect movies ever made. I am not even kidding. This movie is fantastic in every aspect of the word. And maybe that adds to the sadness that is the death of main protagonist R.P. McMurphy (Jack Nicholson). After going through a lobotomy and have gotten himself turned into a vegetable for being too rebellious. So since his friend “The Chief” (Will Sampson) can’t escape with his friend he decides to show mercy to him and choke him out with a pillow. This scene was not easy to watch, it really reached into me and just made me cry my eyes off. Seriously, I had to pick them up from the floor. But this scene really was well done and couldn’t be any better.

Number 2: American History X (1998)
american-history-x-kapak-fotografi-2

This is most certainly one of my favorite movies of all time. There are few movies (in my opinion) that can be as disturbing yet so awesome as this movie. And no, I am not talking about the “Curb stomp” scene as the death for this entry on the list since that character only contributed to that scene but it wasn’t sad at all. No I am talking about the very last scene of the movie where Danny Vinyard (Edward Furlong) is suddenly shot by a black guy simply because he used to be a skinhead. But the tragedy lies in when his older brother Derek (Edward Norton) finds out and runs into the school bathroom where Danny lies on the ground, shot. Derek sits down next to his dead brother and just holds him, crying. This scene really broke my hearts in many ways. A lot of it thanks to Edward Norton being a fantastic actor and because it was just incredibly well done. The movie never lost momentum (in my opinion) and really ended on a high note. Fun fact: In the original script there was another part to the ending where after Danny had died, Derek would shave his head again. But Norton got it changed… and I think it was for the better. Because one more scene/part would have kind of made the ending less impactful.

Number 1: The Green Mile (1999)
The-Green-Mile-the-green-mile-8224001-800-600

This movie… this fucking movie. Great writing, great acting, great music, great drama… this movie is just great! You know which death I am talking about. That final execution of John Coffey (Michael Clarke Duncan). Throughout the movie we get to know this gentle giant and find out he is innocent when it comes to the murder of those two little girls. As we find out, it was actually Sam Rockwell who did it. But alas, they can never prove it and therfore poor Mr. Coffey gets executed in the most heartbreaking scene in any movie ever (my opinion). Not only that the scene is done in a way that makes YOU the viewer cry, but seeing the prison guards (Including Tom Hanks, Barry Pepper and more) cry as well just makes the scene so damn sad. I swear, this scene made me cry like a little baby. You might complain “UUUUH, The movie is too fucking long!”. But believe me, it doesn’t feel that long and the payoff at the end is worth it. This movie has the most heartbreaking death in a movie ever (My opinion). I should have also mentioned, animals are not fair game when it comes to this stuff.

And that’s it really. But what is a list like this without a few honorable mentions? First up we have the death of Mike Zavala (Michael Peña) in “End of Watch”. Then we have Maximus Decimus Meridius (Russell Crowe) in “Gladiator”. Joe Brody (Bryan Cranston) in “Godzilla”. Dan Evans (Christian Bale) in “3:10 to Yuma”. And that is it for this time! If you liked this post then maybe give it a “like” perhaps! If you have any ideas for Countdowns I can do in the future, please let me know, maybe I’ll use your idea and credit you for it! And with that, I leave you!

Goodbye my friends!

Movie Review : Godzilla (2014)

Image

Monster movies…they are…usually a hit-or-miss type of movie. It’s kind of like Russian Roulette, if you understand how I mean. Either it clicks and survives, or it will go bang and die. That is what happened back in 1998 when Roland Emmerich tried his hands at making his own “Godzilla” movie. The revolver went bang. But 16 years later we get a new “Godzilla” movie. And how is it? Will it be as shit as its 1998 counterpart or will it be the “Godzilla” movie we have all been waiting for? Let’s find out.

Monsters and monserettes…”Godzilla”!

Joe Brody (Bryan Cranston) works at a nuclear plant in Japan. He lives in Japan with his wife Sandra (Juliette Binoche) and his son Ford (CJ Adams). One day when he goes to work they get some unusual readings. His wife goes down with a team of science-y people to take a closer look. Suddenly there is a bit of an earthquake (which it had been earllier as well). But Joe doesn’t really think it are earthquakes mentioning that earthquakes are “random” and these were not. But something goes wrong and a toxic gas thing leaks out, almost even chasing Sandra and her team. Before she and her team arrive at the big heavy metal door, the gas almost reaches the door and Joe has to close it…with his wife still inside that tunnel. Then after he had closed it on time…she arrives at the door. Her suit can’t keep her from the gas and she will die. And she does. Joe of course cries about it. Then the entire plant crumbles together. Sure, Joe gets out…but his wife fucking died in front of him…ON HIS BIRTHDAY! His son, with the rest of his class gets away from school since a nuclear plant crumbling together will cause a new Chernobyl-ish.
Cut to 15 years later. Ford (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) is coming home to his family (Elizabeth Olsen & Carson Bolde) after serving in the army. But his happiness doesn’t last too long since he gets a phone call regarding his dad Joe getting his ass arrested for going somewhere he should not have. So of course Ford goes to Japan to help bail his poor old man out of jail. After that situation they go and do the same thing again because…why not? And of course they get captured, but this time taken to a military base. Where the people there tries to kill off a…thing in a cocoon. But they only wake it up and will come to KILL US ALL. And it feasts on radiation. So the story is very well set up. And it goes on and it never gets me bored. Something is always going on! Even if it’s something as small/simple as two people talking to eachother, this movie makes that interesting. Maybe it’s because Ken Watanabe does a good amount of talking in this movie…who knows. The only complaint I have with the plot was that there was not enough Godzilla. When Godzilla had any story stuff in the movie it was very interesting and entertaining, but it was not enough. But still, very good story.

The characters…they are very good for a monster movie. Ususally when I watch a monster movie I don’t give a shit about the characters. Seriously. But here I actually kinda felt for them…especially Godzilla. Call me a fanboy if you want, I don’t give a shit. But if we count away Godzilla for a second…major prasie to Bryan Fucking Cranston as Joe Brody…so much emotion and just good ol’ great acting coming from his way. Too bad he doesn’t get nearly enough screen time. He was fantastic in it. The only character complaint I have is for teh character of Ford. They could have fleshed him out a little more. Otherwise, good characters and fantastic acting in this movie. And Godzilla is the best character no matter what all people consider “characters”.

The music is just…perfect. The score by Alexandre Desplat is just fucking magnificent! It is perfectly orchestrated and just fits the movie so damn well! It just shows how epic everything is! Not kidding, just listen if you watch the movie.

This movie looks…fucking amazing. It is so well filmed. This movie looks beautiful. Not just in its CGI, but how it is filmed. Gareth Edward knows what the hell he does behind a camera! Also, if you look closely/pay attention, you will notice many easter eggs that refer to old “Godzilla” movies. This movie is full of them. Go look for ’em. Here is a clue for ya…glass cage with a type of bug.

Reception for “Godzilla” was overall pretty good. Rotten Tomatoes holds the rating of 73% on it and have certified it fresh. Metacritic has given it a 61/100 score. And no Roger Ebert thing (since he passed away over a year ago).
imdb.com currently holds the rating of 7,9 on the movie.

So I have given some fairly good opinions on different aspects. Here is my score: 9,76/10. This movie is worth watching on the cinema…and the 3D isn’t actually that bad. Also, when this movie comes out on DVD/Blu-Ray, it is a must buy for not only monster film fans, but also people who just like movies. This movie gets the “Seal of Approval”.Image

 

Review of “Godzilla” is now done. And for once I reviewed something that just came out.

Oh no, they say he’s got to go, Go Go Godzilla!
