Godzilla ★★★★★

It’s about time I write a review for this but there are no words really needed that haven’t been said for this masterpiece. This movie works so well as everything that’s a major marquee in cinema. It’s timeless, it’s a blockbuster, it’s a cult classic, it’s exciting, it’s terrifying, it’s dramatic, and it’s monstrous. You can enjoy this in the theater, at home, in a drive-in. This film is practically a period piece that pioneered the monster genre in a huge direction alongside many others such as King Kong and Beast Of 1,000 Fathoms. Now the movie is driven by human’s fear of destruction and consequences. We see people risk their life for one another in the face of danger and how a catastrophe unites the people to survive. Even the climax of Serizawa inventing the oxygen destroyer speaks volumes because he was ashamed of what he’s created, it’s like a Frankenstein story if you would. An honest to god timeless masterpiece
