Review: Shin Godzilla / Godzilla Resurgence

It would seem that I’m the target market for Godzilla films. I love old school Sentai (Power Rangers), Kamen Rider and Big Robo Anime. While I’ve tried various films, I’ve just never really been into Godzilla (or Godzooki,) though I’m familiar with the character and his adversaries.

Then I started to hear the rumblings all over the internet – there was a new Godzilla movie. More importantly, it was apparently amazing. With the aftertaste from the most recent American Gozilla movie with Bryan Cranston, and with a skepticism akin to just seeing the 90s Godzilla movie, I sat down for a trailer.

With the first screen I was instantly sold – Directed by: Hideki Anno. SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!!!

Review: Stranger Things

(SPOILER FREE)

I just finished the Netflix original series Stranger Things. My insides are still shaking from the range of excitement this show delivers in so many different ways. There is a lot of crap on TV these days, but this is far from it. If you don’t have Netflix this show should be the reason you fork over the dough and get it. The creators of this series are Matt Duffer and Ross Duffer, twin brothers in their 30s who were turned down over a dozen times from various studios for this project. I am sure those studios are kicking themselves right now because this show delivers everything you want in a sci-fi thriller.

SHOUT! Factory Announces THE TRANSFORMERS -THE MOVIE  30th Anniversary Edition

THE TRANSFORMERSTHE MOVIE 30th ANNIVERSARY EDITION

Special Two-Disc Blu-ray™ and DVD Arrive in Stores Everywhere

September 13, 2016 From Shout! Factory

Good grief, has it really been thirty years since The Transformers – The Movie came out? I still have vivid memories of watching this for the first time in the theater, crying, laughing, cheering, and practically getting up in the aisle and dancing (have I mentioned how much I love the soundtrack?). If you’ve ever wondered why I feel personally betrayed by the Michael Bay Transformers films, it’s because what I really wanted out of those was a live-action version of this movie.

Now longtime fans can rejoice, because this September Shout! Factory is releasing a newly remastered copy of the film in both DVD and Blu-Ray, with lots of fun extras. Click the jump for the full press release on this 30th Anniversary Edition.

Review: Ghostbusters

There hasn’t been a movie in a while that caused more controversy over nothing than the new Ghostbusters. The who, what, why and hows of the announcement made headlines around the world. Well the movie has been released and we finally get to see what all the drama was about. And guess what? It was over nothing. This new version of Ghostbusters is fun, hilarious, and a great addition to an already loved franchise.

SDCC 2016 – Sherlock Panel Announced

I know it was several days ago that the Sherlock panel was announced, but to be honest I just now calmed down enough to form a rational thought in my head. The fangirl meter is off the charts! It is rumored that Mr. Benedict Cumberbatch will be in attendance for the Marvel panel for Doctor Strange so hopefully he will spend the night in beautiful San Diego and wake up for the Sherlock panel to make all of the Cumberbitches’ dreams come true.

Review: The Purge: Election Year

With the current political climate of Democrats and Republicans at each other’s throats and mass-shootings happening so often people barely seem shocked anymore, it should come as no surprise that a third Purge movie comes during an election year. Especially this election year, which feels like a precursor to an actual Purge. So give it up for the “life imitates art, art imitates life” scenario with The Purge: Election Year.
