  • Godzilla 2014

    ★★½ Added

    After seeing Gareth Edwards "Monsters" and hearing about him helming "Godzilla", I was afraid. My fears were confirmed. A kaiju movie should not be a slow burn human drama, sorry.

  • Monsters 2010

    White Americans have white people problems like getting overcharged for things in foreign countries and learn from aliens and Mexicans (same diff here) that their biggest problem is their boring, privileged lives.

    Kill me now.

    Lee: I like to let people talk who like to talk. It lets me find out how full of shit they are.

  • The Road 2009

    ★★★½ Watched 08 Jun, 2014

    Soul crushing and fascinating look at post apocalyptic survival. The Road doesn't travel new ground in its assumptions of what humanity will do to survive but it does feature a struggle of hope vs despair that is compelling.

    The one weak spot is the boy, whose constant mewling of "Papa!" tends to get grating. Thankfully, it's mostly Viggo's show and he doesn't disappoint. A little more of Charlize Theron and her character's juxtaposition opposite Viggo's would have been appreciated. But this is a solid movie that looks a little deeper past pure survival.
