    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Watched this with my 12yo and 9yo girls... and it actually holds up pretty well! I was surprised. Pat Morita is a comic genius. So may quotable and funny lines beyond the ones everyone knows "Wax on! Wax off!" I was surprised how they included Manzanar — very impressive. Now I want to see the second one to see if they include the Battle of Okinawa.

    Pretty much worked the same on my kids 30+ years later. Although my 11 year old was suspicious of NASA: “Don’t trust them! Those guys faked the moon landing!” 🤣

    Godzilla: King of the Monsters


    It was late and I didn’t sleep well the night before... but I can’t lie: I nodded off a couple of times. But it’s fine! I don’t think any plot happened. Anyways, there are some epic scenes, and a few good lines, some big monster fights... and a lot of confusing other crap. What do you expect?

    Beautiful sets, groovy music, great quips and excellent editing. The plot has some holes you could drive 2 side-by-side-e-brake-drifting-1960-Trabants through, but there are enough entertaining bits to make this a fun a ride. I really hope this gets a sequel.
