    FAVORITE FLICKS: GODZILLA

    After the events of the previous entry, City On The Edge Of Battle, there's conflict between the Bilusado and the humans about what should be done about Haruo not taking the opportunity to kill Godzilla. The Bilusado believe it should be done at any and all costs while the humans don't want to sacrifice their literal humanity to do so and are also thinking about the aftereffects of killing Godzilla with the nanotechnology - it would have…

    I'd explain what the film is and what the film's about, but I'm assuming all you film nerdz already know plenty about it. But there's one thing I can explain to you.

    It's not very good.

    Richard Linklater, who very very very few people or nonexistent-people-I-may-be-referring-to already know, is my favorite filmmaker in the history of cinema. I find his knack for pinpointing realism and creating genuine authenticity onto the…
