    Godzilla Raids Again

    I didn't think it was possible to have miniature set pieces so convincing and so unbelievably bad in the same film. Some interesting shots, but the big fight scene between Godzilla and the dinosaur were pretty cheesy.

    I purposely waited to see this movie in a theatre, obviously I wished it had been a 35mm or 70mm print, but sometimes beggars can't be choosers. Either way, this absolutely exceeded my expectations and blew me away. I was worried it would be too dense, and maybe it was, but who cares when it looks this damn good. This is 1968 filmmaking, every director thereafter has zero excuse to not have believable special effects and the fact that many films fail, is a testament to Stanley K.

    This movie commits the cardinal sin of film making; don't be boring.

    The score and cinematography is stunning (as is Vanessa Kirby's hair flowing in the wind) but much like Ammonite it lacks actual passion, I rarely got invested in the story and felt the beats coming from a mile away. The film was shot on 16mm and has a unique graininess to it while still capturing some fantastic landscapes and a burning house sequence. The attraction between Abigail and Tallie were there, but the passion wasn't.

    Watched during Sundance.
