GODZILLA: KING OF THE MONSTERS (2019) - Box Office Pulp Podcast | Movie Reviews | Film Analysis

Thursday, June 27, 2019


History (and Hollywood) can't help but show, again and again, how nature points out the folly of man, and usually it's with a giant, radioactive, morally-ambiguous lizard beating the ever loving snot out of some monsters. Now THAT'S an environmental lesson we can all get behind! It's been many a years since Gareth Edwards rose a new Americanized big budget Godzilla from the depths. It may not have been perfect, but with the release of Michael Dougherty's damn fine roller-coaster ride of a sequel, it is the perfect cinematic equivalent of "I set 'em up, you knock 'em down!" And boy, did Dougherty knock 'em down! Aided by one hell of a cast, some killer effects, new and fascinating allegories, a surprisingly engaging human story, and more Monster Zero and Mothra action than you can shake a Rodan at,  GODZILLA: KING OF THE MONSTERS is a Kaiju slug-fest that all others should bow down to! I mean, Rodan definitely will, but he'll bow to a startling breeze. So, with a purposeful grimace and a terrible sound, pull some high-tension wires down with us as we dissect the intricacies of this Toho love letter!
