    ★★★★★

    Perhaps the second most influential movie in my life. The birth of history’s greatest movie monster and one of the great masterpieces of world cinema.

    The more I watch this movie the more I realize how angry it is. The post-Hiroshima and Nagasaki commentary is blunt and brutal. Cities burn and civilians are killed in droves. The tone is morbid throughout. Godzilla is an unstoppable force created by mankind’s feeble attempts at harnessing a power we’re not responsible enough to…

    After over a year without any big real spectacle at the movies it seems appropriate that cinema’s two most famous monster herald the return of movies in the biggest way…

    Yesterday I walked into a movie more excited than I’ve ever been for anything in my life (I’m not exaggerating) to see Godzilla: King of the Monsters. I walked out of the movie thinking it was just OK and not my new favorite summer blockbuster. My feelings have never been hurt so bad by a movie being just OK. I woke up this morning feeling like I’d been dumped by the love of my life.

    I watched this on a…
