    Godzilla: King of the Monsters

    ★★★

    Like the second Pacific Rim movie, the only parts I cared about were when giant things were smashing each other. The human elements were predictably bland and forgettable. But they didn’t skimp on monster fights and visuals, which is what really matters with this kind of movie, so it gets a pass for shoehorning a lame plot between battles. I used Redbox points to get it for free so I can’t complain too much.

    It was strange taking my kids to see this movie, because they’re about the age I was when the first one came out. Crazy to think the franchise has lasted this long without becoming terrible.

    The Two Bills (Hader and Skarsgård) definitely stood out. I think Skarsgård’s Pennywise is gonna be kinda like his version of Heath Ledger’s Joker. People will fondly remember others playing the role (like Jack Nicholson as Joker and Tim Curry as Pennywise) but B-Skar has given it a whole new life.

    As all of Laika’s films are, this was a delight. Beautifully crafted and a little more lighthearted and less gothic than their previous movies, but that didn’t diminish it in the slightest. I laughed out loud several times at the silly jokes (“The people we don’t want here are getting away, force them to stay!”) and just really loved watching it.
