Godzilla vs. Kong (2021) ☆☆☆(3/4): The Clash of Titans

“Godzilla vs. Kong” overwhelmed me more than once, and I sort of admired that. Like its predecessor “Godzilla: King of the Monsters” (2019), the movie relentlessly flaunts excessiveness and outrageousness from the beginning to the end, and I finally came … Continue reading

Zack Snyder’s Justice League (2021) ☆☆☆(3/4): Sincerely excessive to say the least

“Zach Snyder’s Justice League” is sincerely excessive to say the least. Although I felt rather tired as going through its exciting but exhausting final hour, I must admit that, thanks to its considerably extended scope in terms of story and … Continue reading

Shadow in the Cloud (2020) ☆☆1/2(2.5/4): There is something on the bomber…

“Shadow in the Cloud” is a rather amusing mix of fantasy and war action film with some feminist touches to be appreciated. Although the resulting mix is not entirely successful on the whole, it is at least anchored well by … Continue reading

We Can Be Heroes (2020) ☆☆☆(3/4): They are surely heroes

Netflix film “We Can Be Heroes”, which was released on this Christmas, often tickled and entertained me more than I expected. While this is basically a kiddie version of “The Avengers” (2012), it did a better job of juggling various … Continue reading

“Mulan”, the live action remake version of the 1998 Disney animation film of the same name, is a pointless and unnecessary product which dissatisfies me a lot for many reasons. Although it is not incompetent at all in technical aspects … Continue reading
