Godzilla Minus One (2023)

I’m not intimately familiar with this franchise, and not even a huge fan of monster flicks, so I wasn’t too sure what to think. But it’s a deeply rich film with proper stakes and an emotional core, so really, it works with or without the big guy. Of course, the incredible effects he brings to the table make for enough fun and awe to make this whole thing worthwhile.

In like 10 years when he can see his, my kids going to love it.

Stray Observations

  • Sets up that he knows how to shoot on the boat. It’s funny how these basic narrative things get totally lost these day
  • Don’t love all the fades and time jumps
  • A movie with stakes, what a concept
