    Mobile Suit Gundam Hathaway

    ★★★★½

    “I’m Noa. Hathaway Noa.”

    Fantastically directed by Shūkō Murase, Mobile Suit Gundam Hathaway has Gundam’s UC timeline roaring back to prominence and prestige adapting original Gundam creator Tomino’s long thought unadaptable trilogy of novels - Hathaway’s Flash. A direct sequel to Char’s Counterattack, in which he also had a small role, Hathaway follows the titular character, son of famous Gundam character Bright Noa, as the leader of the terrorists organisation Mafty as they seek to fight against the destruction and privatisation of…

  • Godzilla

    Godzilla

    ★★★★★

    Part of the Godzilla Ranking Project.

    Over 50 years later and still holds up like a sonofabitch. Terrifying, awe inspiring, gut wrenching, haunting. I mean, holy shit, the mother holding her three kids as Godzilla closes in close by telling not to worry, they'll be with their dad soon. The palpable fear. The terror of Godzilla AND the atom bomb. The evacuation scenes.

    Jesus.

    That theme music.

    Doubles Cause Troubles

    ★★

    Pretty fun broad and low brow comedy from Wong Jing which ticks all the regular boxes you’d expect from a wacky “hide dead body and also share an apartment with your cousin you hate and who hates you”. Elevated by Jing’s base talents for knowing What The People Like when it is this kind of comedy, and of course Legitimate Pro Maggie Cheung.

    What are we, some kind of Jungle Cruise?

    Part of Godzilla & Friends, Ranked.

    “The myths are real. There was a war. And they’re the last ones standing.“

    Look, I’m gonna go out on a limb and say half of the critics here and at large don’t know what a Godzilla movie actually is; yes there are a few Very Serious movies but let’s be honest, much of the series is giant monster wrestling matches who, if you look close enough, can also have a message . And look,…

  • Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    ★★★★

    Rise of Skywalker is a tough one to review. It's not as tight or as perfectly crafted (both on a technical and thematic level) as The Last Jedi, nor does it has the sheer exuberance and energy of The Force Awakens. It is however, better than the latter because it does go some what different to its OT equivalent, and I believe less engaged in retreading old ground that that entry, despite what some may think. Yes J.J. Abrams has…
