Godzilla vs. Kong (2021)

Full points to the director for showing us some new action, a new adventure, a new mythical location and a commentary on disinformation.

A film that promises a fight between two titans and delivers on every front. A true cinematic experience which would make a great IMAX watch.

Though the cinematography is primarily CGI, it is still breathtaking and awe inspiring.

3.5/5

Godzilla (2014)

This time the ‘King of Monsters’ may be on the side of the human race, naturally being drawn to radiation seeking MUTO’s (Massive Unidentified Terrestrial Organism). Some think its nature’s way of dealing with the MUTO’s, others fear that Godzilla might create havoc. What ensues?

A back story with too much ‘forced drama/emotion’ leads us to the fantastic action sequences and destruction scenes. A tad long at 122 minutes, the 3D didn’t lend much to the visuals, though it wasn’t a deterrent either. New cities make a debut in the catastrophe landscape, a relief from the usual. 

The fans will love it and other mortals like us will enjoy the special effects. Isn’t that what a summer blockbuster is all about?

2/5
