Godzilla: King of the Monsters – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 29th, 2019

“Godzilla: King of the Monsters receives a passing grade, because the monster fights really are that great!”

Godzilla: King of the Monsters is a frustrating mix of incredible special effects and monster fights with far too much Lifetime Network style human drama. As a fan of the first (new) Godzilla (2014) I was extremely excited for this one. I understood that in the first one the reason for limited Godzilla scenes was to create suspense and save money and I assumed that after the reveal of the first one this one would stray away from the issues of the first. Instead it doubles down on them by adding more useless human subplots, far too many human characters, and a story that (even for a giant monster movie) is just going through the motions.

‘First Man’ Film Review #2!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 10th, 2018

Anytime I see a movie about space the technology seems effortless. Even in space disaster movies, the main character is one button or airlock away from safety. The technology and engineering are always #15 on the list of most movies set in space. Even movies like Apollo 13 romanticize space travel to a large degree and gloss over the real work it takes to even get up there. First Man takes a different approach to launch humans into space by making every single aspect of the space program of the 60s be, frankly, terrifying.

Film Review: ‘Carol’!!

by Janet White on Dec 24th, 2015

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

CAROL

 

Carol opens with the sounds of screeching train tracks during the title slides. Fade in straight to a close-up of a street vent while an instrumental score is played. The images that follow (cars, people walking on streets, etc.) are warm with a soft glow, just what was needed to put the audience into 1950s New York. The world of The Price of Salt, the novel by Patricia Highsmith of which Carol is based.  Read the rest of this entry »

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

house-of-cards-seaosn-2__140603234815

 

The holidays are one of the biggest catch-22’s in existence, you want to spend time with family, but the second you’re with them, you’re ready to get out of there. Netflix to the rescue! The streaming service is beefing up their original series offerings just in time for the holiday home-stretch. What better way to deal with an over-abundance of family, and the crazy that comes with that, than to flip on the TV and escape into the lives of those that have way more problems than you do?

Hello, Jana here,

_batman_vs__superman___world_s_finest__poster_by_nieoein-d6jkswg

It looks like Warner Bros. is banking pretty heavily on Zack Snyder’sBatman vs. Superman‘ release, with a so-so reception of last year’s ‘Man of Steel‘, they gave him a sequel. Not only is he doing a sequel, he cast Ben Affleck as Batman which has drawn cheers and jeers, mostly jeers, from the public since then. So it seems a little ridiculous to me that Warner Bros. has already announced a ‘Justice League‘ movie helmed by Snyder. I’m not saying a ‘Justice League‘ film isn’t a good idea, I just don’t think building the DC Universe off of the ‘Man of Steel‘ platform is the way to do it.

Movie Quotes

Bethany:
I don't want this, it's too big.
Metatron:
That's what Jesus said. Yes, I had to tell him. And you can imagine how that hurt the Father - not to be able to tell the Son Himself because one word from His lips would destroy the boy's frail human form? So I was forced to deliver the news to a scared child who wanted nothing more than to play with other children. I had to tell this little boy that He was God's only Son, and that it meant a life of persecution and eventual crucifixion at the hands of the very people He came to enlighten and redeem. He begged me to take it back, as if I could. He begged me to make it all not true. And I'll let you in on something, Bethany, this is something I've never told anyone before... If I had the power, I would have.
