    King Kong vs. Godzilla

    ★★★½

    “When you and the monster meet, be sure you tell him all about your corn problems.”

    Two giants (no pun intended) of the monster genre, King Kong and Godzilla will be set to face each other in 2020, but let’s not forget the first time these behemoths met.

    Filled with a cast that appeared in many Kaiju films of the time, the regular faces all do a good job keeping the human aspect fun and engaging. Since this was filmed…

  • Humongous

    Humongous

    ★★★★

    With as much atmosphere as there is horny teens, Humongous is a fun movie to watch at 5 in the morning. 

    Shot with style, the movie thrives off moody, darkly-lit setpieces. Lots of creative camera movement also enhance the viewing experience. I loved all the moments with the titular “Humongous”. His hulking physique is always just out of site or shrouded by darkness, he gives off a menacing aura because of it.

    The cast are all decent and I liked…

    “See you later alligator”

    When most horror films nowadays are either sequels/reboots or focus more on “drama” and “symbolism”, it’s extremely refreshing to get something that’s both original and lean, mean, and tense as hell.

    This movie is unrelenting. Either the tension is building or some poor soul is getting brutally eaten by gators. Add onto that scenes Thad make claustrophobic and aquaphobic people faint, and boom! One hell of a thrill ride.

    The effects are top-notch. Which isn’t surprising…

  • Godzilla Raids Again

    Godzilla Raids Again

    ★★½

    “We beat Godzilla at last.”

    Talk about an inferior sequel. Actually I guess I should say DON’T talk about, because this movie is rarely brought up among Godzilla fans. Out of every sequel I truly believe this one is the most ignored. Not hated or laughed at, just ignored. And after finally rewatching it, I can see why.

    The plot is super basic. Two pilots discover another Godzilla fighting a new Kaiju and now Japan must prepare again for their…

  • The Hurricane Heist

    The Hurricane Heist

    ★★★½

    How am I supposed to hate a movie where our main character uses the hurricane to turn a hubcap into a killer frisbee, impaling a dude through the chest?

  • Suspiria

    Suspiria

    ★★★★★

    “Bad luck isn't brought by broken mirrors, but by broken minds.”

    Dario Argento’s fever dream.

    A fantastical acid trip into a world of endless hallways, colors bleeding through the scenery, mysterious sounds echoing just on the other side of a door, a soundtrack of creepy ~ la la las~, and style, style, style.

    It might be too soon to say this, but this is Peak Argento.

    The atmosphere is so incredibly overbearing, you’re never in a state of relaxation. You…
