Godzilla (2014) Review

On DVD ‐ June 03, 2014

Godzilla is fantastic. The visual effects and CGI is excellent, the score is pulsating and the large scale set pieces are incredibly fun to watch. This is all backed by a strong cast.

Godzilla starts with an incident at a nuclear power plant in 1999. Inside is Joe Brody (Bryan Cranston) and his wife Sandra Brody ( Juliette Binoche) and scientists Ichiro Serizawa (Ken Watanbe) and Vivenne Graham (Sally Hawkins). During this incident, Sandra is killed and Joe becomes determined to figure out the truth. 15 years later, Ford Brody (Aaron Taylor Johnson) is returning home from war to his wife Elle …

Frank Review

On DVD ‐ May 18, 2014

From the trailer, Frank had the potential to be very great or very wierd. From the opening moments, Frank is fantastic and unlike any other movie I’ve seen recently. The direction and the script is excellent as is the cast. It’s hysterical and emotional, completley original and is one of my favorite movies of the year so far.

Frank follows Jon (Domhnall Gleeson), a struggling musician trying to write a new song. One day, he happens upon a band called Soronprfbs when their keyboardist is trying to drown himself. Don (Scoot McNairy) asks Jon if he can play and Jon says he …

South Park : The Stick of Truth Review

Video Games ‐ April 22, 2014

South Park : The Stick of Truth is fantastic and one of the best games of 2014 so far. It’s hysterical and feels like an episode of the show with the animation and writing. The town is realized in a large open world and the combat is very fun. In the vein of the show, there are almost non-stop pop culture refrences and jokes and spoofs and satire of video game cliches.

In South Park : The Stick of Truth, you play as a new kid who just moved into South Park. When you leave your house, you encounter and save …

Gone Girl Trailer/Book Review

Uncategorized ‐ April 22, 2014

Recently, the first trailer for David Fincher’s Gone Girl was released. I read the book last year and wrote a review for it. Here it is followed by my thoughts on the trailer.

At first, Gone Girl may seem like any typical mystery, it soon becomes apparent it is not. It is a lot better than that. Published in June 2012 and written by Gillian Flynn, Gone Girl is a great thrilling twist filled mystery that is also darkly funny.

Gone Girl is about Nick and Amy as they are approaching their 5th anniversary of being …

Non-Stop Review

On DVD ‐ March 30, 2014

2014 continues to be a strong year for movies, with the latest being Non-Stop. From the trailer, Non-Stop looked very stupid and ridiculous – but also fun in a very popcorn movie type of way. Luckily, Non-Stop is a lot more than that. It’s a great, well acted, suspenseful and tensely directed thriller.

Non-Stop is about Air Marshal Bill Marks (Liam Nesson), who is an undercover air marshal whose job is to fly undercover and watch the passengers. He has a dark past and goes to work on a regular day. Upon arriving, he encounters several passengers and makes a mental …
