  • Mothra 1961

    ★★★★ Watched 17 Sep, 2014

    Abandoning the more serious themes of the the early Godzilla films, Toho gifts us with Mothra. A sweet and funny movie with plenty of awesome kaiju fun. It's goofy, but still has it's plenty of heart and sensitivity. I love this stinkin' Moth, and I'm glad she has a spotlight of her own.

  • Raiders of the Lost Ark 1981

    ★★★★★ Watched 10 Feb, 2014 1

    There is nothing new to say about this movie: it's iconic. It's fun. It's suspenseful. It's violent.

    It's a classic.
