Movie Review: Kong: Skull Island (2017)

Prior to Kong: Skull Island, there have been at least a half dozen feature films based on the monstrous King Kong character, including the original 1933 classic, 1962’s campy “King Kong vs. Godzilla,” the Dino De Laurentiis 1976 budget-breaker and Peter Jackson’s overlong and ambitious 2005 edition, among others. Despite the various incarnations, the plot…

Movie Review: The Revenant (2015)

Dedicated to David Jones Nature is not a survivor. Nature neither lives nor dies; it is in nature where everything that lives dies, and it is in it that everything that lives fights for survival. Nature is therefore the place of survival, but it is also its witness. For this is no inert space. More…

Movie Review: Godzilla (2014)

For Godzilla’s sixtieth birthday, I can’t imagine a better gift than the one Gareth Edwards has just given in the form of a massive scale blockbuster that celebrates the beloved Toho monster in flabbergasting fashion. Edwards has translated his own adoration of the iconic monster into an artful love letter of epic proportions, delivering a…

Movie Review: Noah (2014)

Giant rock creatures? A bevy of clichés? Another awful performance from Emma Watson? So this is what a biblical epic looks like in the new millennium. It’s also what Darren Aronofsky looks like with a big budget. Neither is very encouraging. Well, except for the rock monsters, of course. Aronofsky’s Noah is a non-traditional take…

Movie Trailer #2: Godzilla (2014)

They tried to kill it in 1954 but the atomic bomb only made it stronger and angrier. Meet Godzilla. With this latest trailer for Warner Bros & Legendary Pictures’ much anticipated movie, it is made clear again (at least from the point of view of humans) that the radioactive dinosaur has come ashore to even…

Movie Trailer: Godzilla (2014)

A leaked trailer for Godzilla popped up a month or so ago and was promptly pulled. But before it was, it was abundantly clear that this Godzilla is not the same as the 1998 Roland Emmerich version. Today Warner Bros. dropped the official version and it too makes no allusions that the radioactive dinosaur/lizard-monster is…

Movie Review: Pacific Rim (2013)

Laden with clamorous battle scenes, sweeping visual effects and a fairly conventional storyline, Pacific Rim delivers in its appeal but lingers dangerously close to the entrance to the vault of forgettable, inconsequential summer films. That’s mostly due to the fact this — in the most simplistic of analogies — “Godzilla” meets “Transformers” movie suffers from…
