    Prince of Darkness

    ★★★★

    Feels a little bit formless through the first two acts, especially in how quickly we meet such a large cast. Once most of them have been killed off, though, it tightens up. The effects are incredible the whole way through and the use of water especially impressed.

    ★★★

    Godzilla kicking rocks at people is one of my least favorite bits of the Honda era and the human plot is mostly a snoozer. Still Ghidorah is one of the best creature designs of the whole series so you can’t knock it down too far before it starts to feel disrespectful.

    First off, any musical not written by Parker/Stone is automatically deserving of intense mistrust.

    Second, the history. The idea that this work serves as some sort of reclamation, the oppressed redefining the historical character of the oppressors, is the worst kind of propagandizing. Denying historical fact is one thing, Miranda seeks to absorb it entirely, so that no trace of real contradiction remains to be found. 

    Now that I think about it, denial of historical fact is really quite essential…
