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 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.

Movie Trailer #2: Pacific Rim (2013)

I’ve shied away from trailer overload (some films are getting five to ten trailers nowadays) but I couldn’t pass on the latest trailer for Pacific Rim. It may not be as good as the action fueled WonderCon footage released a month back (I’ve embedded that below since I didn’t post when it first became available)…

Movie Trailer: Pacific Rim (2013)

Last night the anticipated trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim was loosed on the internet. For me, it’s a bit of a letdown; what I see feels too damn similar to a mishmash of “Godzilla,” “The Big O” and “Battleship” right now. The hokey battle speech by Idris Elba doesn’t help much either. That…

Movie Review: The Hangover Part II (2011)

The wolfpack is back in Todd Phillips’ sequel to his 2009 smash-hit “The Hangover.” Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis, and Ed Helms all reprise their iconic roles as Phil, Alan, and Stu. This time in The Hangover Part 2, however, the team assembles in Thailand for Stu’s wedding. But when he, already on poor terms with…
