• Shin Godzilla

    Shin Godzilla

    Among the smartest and most politically complex films within the Godzilla franchise, Shin Godzilla is a horrifying take on the king of the monsters, that allows the director to dissect the fabrics of Japanese politics and those who call the shots. However, like most movies, this is not a criticism of the government, but rather a look inside the minds that can make or break the country of Japan. with no main protagonist, with each character nearly representing a different…

  • Godzilla: King of the Monsters

    Godzilla: King of the Monsters

    ★★★★½

    easily my all time favourite film of all time, with so much love and affection cast into its fabrics. this is a fan's dream come true, made by Godzilla fans, this comes from the heart with love, it feels as though a life-times worth of the directors godzilla obsession comes to life in this film. the use of Godzillas classic roar and both his and mothras themes being used is an amazing bonus. The addition of Mothra, Rodan and Ghidorah…

  • Godzilla vs. Kong

    Godzilla vs. Kong

    easily the sloppiest and worst film within the monsterverse, with bland characters who are near impossible to be attached to, lackluster monster duals, and a nonsense plot. The film makes no attempt to make the monsters believable, with no sense of scale, the film fails in sucking us into it's world. the cgi ranges from being extremely detailed to pretty shit. None of the characters are memorable and the long awaited reveal of Mechagodzilla is sorely misplaced and adds nothing to the film.
    though day time fight scenes are very much so welcomed.

  • Ultraman: The Next

    Ultraman: The Next

    The start to the epic Ultraman Nexus universe, the Next is a great instalment in the franchise, with easily one of my favourite Ultraman designs.
    The story is the same as every other ultraman and the characters are pretty bland, but the effects and music make it stand above most, creating a truly awesome experience.

  • Ultra Seven

    Ultra Seven

    ★★★★★

    if I was to only show one series to someone to introduce them to the Ultraman franchise, without a doubt it would be Ultraseven. with effects rivalling that of its predecessor and even many of its immediate successors, Ultraseven makes the strongest mark on the Ultra series ever, with striking imagery, fantastic cinematography and stories featuring strong social commentary, disguised as a science fiction action series.

    Many of the best episodes are easily the ones directed by the legendary Akio…

  • Ultraman

    Ultraman

    ★★★★½

    a true masterpiece of Japanese special effects, the brainchild of Eiji Tsuburaya. Ultraman is a truly amazing fantasy series, it is so easy to tell why this hero became such an inspiration to many, including myself. the CHaracters are so loveable and memorable and many of the monsters and aliens are instantly memorable, particular favourites of mine being, Dada, Baltan and Redking.

    While many of the effects don't hold up, they do progress greatly as the show goes on. same…

  • Terror of Mechagodzilla

    Terror of Mechagodzilla

    A direct sequel to Godzilla vs Mechagodzilla, it takes itself far more seriously, with a very dark and tragic plot, even some nudity sneaks its way in there. this film is great, including by far the most unfair battle in which MG and the giant sea monster, Titanosauruas beat the fuck out of Godzilla.

  • Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla

    Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla

    Godzilla vs Mechagodzilla is an awesome movie full of gorilla aliens, robots, gods and prophecies. The battle between Anguirius and the fake Godzilla is brutal as hell. The second duel, Godzilla and Mechagodzilla surrounded in flames is awesome. the final fight, in which the ancient king caeser, guardian of Okinawa is awakened, and all hell breaks lose as laser beams and pyrotechnics fly around the screen.

  • Godzilla vs. Megalon

    Godzilla vs. Megalon

    Gigan is back and so is stock footage.

    However, the difference from its predecessor is that it knows it's stupid. The film has a nonsense plot about underground people, Aliens, giant beetles with drill hands and of course, size-changing rainbow robots. I love this movie with every fibre of my being.

  • Godzilla vs. Gigan

    Godzilla vs. Gigan

    Stock footage strikes again!

    Godzilla vs Gigan sees aliens attack once more, accompanied by Ghidorah and a cyborg chicken with knife limbs and a buzz saw on his chest. this film is an utter mess, with one scene even seeing Godzilla speak.

    However, it does see the iconic allying of Godzilla and Anguirius and the final tag battle is glorious.

  • Godzilla vs. Hedorah

    Godzilla vs. Hedorah

    easily one of the wackiest and most absurd Godzilla movies, this movie is like an acid trip. With a unique plot about environmentalism. Whilst Godzilla had been the defender of the earth for years now, this was the film that made the full transition to him being a superhero.

    This film is a mess, but a glorious one.

  • Destroy All Monsters

    Destroy All Monsters

    The avengers of Godzilla movies, this film manages to have 14 monsters yet almost no monster action. It is not all lost as the kaiju scenes are top-notch and the human storyline is great. once again revolving around Aliens who have taken over monsters, this time all of them. The final fight scene is a monster mash for the ages, with Godzilla, his son and their legion of monsters beating the absolute fucking shit out of Ghidorah.
