  • Son of Godzilla

    Son of Godzilla

    ★½

    I think this is one of the very worst yet.

    A reporter ends up on a secluded island where a group of people are conducting secret weather experiments. It's also the home of giant spiders, giant ants and..the son of Godzilla.

    At this point you've pretty much come as far away as humanly possible from the original film. Perhaps the only thing that could be dumber is if Godzilla started tap dancing, but at this point it wouldn't really surprise…

  • Ebirah, Horror of the Deep

    Ebirah, Horror of the Deep

    ★★★½

    I enjoyed this one.

    When a fisherman is lost at sea but his body is never recovered, his brother is convinced he's still alive and goes looking for him with a group of other people. They end up on a strange island guarded by Ebirah, the gigantic crab monster.

    50 fucking stars. A hundred. The Terminator is, was, and always has been one of the greatest science-fiction action thrillers ever made.

  • Captain America: The Winter Soldier

    Captain America: The Winter Soldier

    ★★★★½

    I don't think superhero films should be comedies, history has proven that they work so much better as thrillers. And that's why Captain America: The Winter Soldier is my favourite Marvel film to date, possibly even more so than The Avengers.

    When someone threatens to cause major damage to S.H.I.E.L.D., Captain America has to rethink everything he knows - already trying to adapt to the 21st century, he's making new friends and meeting old ones, thinking of partners lost and…
