Akira Kurosawa's Dreams.
I watched it again. It still looks great even after a long time.

Rented Frozen off of On Demand to see what all the fuss was about. I don't understand the love for the music. Outside of that song I found the rest of them to be rather awful.

The movie itself was alright, I liked Tangled better though.

I also thought about renting Saving Mr. Banks, but fortunately the trailer was so damn long and showed so much that after seeing it there was no longer a need to rent the movie at all.

Return to Nuke 'Em High Volume 1

Shit sucks, almost as unfunny as Chillerama. Lloyd needs to quit writing/directing movies, he's lost his touch. This honestly didn't even feel like a Troma movie; Troma lives in other filmmakers and movies (namely Astron-6's Father's Day).
Oh yeah, and also:
meat

Soda as well.

Catched up on my backlog of movies.

Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters, please just read the book. But still for those who haven't read that book, this is better than the first movie. But still, the book is better with all the comedic parts whereas the movie tried to be too serious.

Furious 6, I can't wait for the 7th installment next year. I'm still sad that Paul Walker is no longer with us...

The Grand Budapest Hotel, which was pretty sweet. Utilized Willem Dafoe very well.

Godzilla (2014)
I went in expecting monster vs monster mayhem and I got human drama.
It seems that the ones who made the movie were skimping on the CGI shots.
And finally, why is Godzilla fat?
Pacific Rim is better than this in my opinion.

I finally saw Frozen as well earlier in the week.  There were a couple of songs which were good, but Olaf the snowman was painfully annoying, aside for the creepy humour bits such as his reaction to getting impaled, or ignoring that he'd melt in the sun.  It wasn't the worst Disney film I've seen, but it's no Beauty and the Beast.  Aside for the refreshing twist, I didn't see quite why everyone's raved so much about it.

I also didn't like Frozen. But I do understand why people were raving about it. It's the songs, they bury themselves in your head and with the current generation as karaoke lovers, you got a great combination for generating hype.

Beauty and the Beast will always be up there.

Well, to be fair, a lot of the original series Godzilla movies were like that to, most of them actually. Because it's cheaper, easier and faster to make the B-plot with humans into the A-plot and have 15 minutes of monster footage in an hour and a half+ movie. Which was important back then because once it was clear Godzilla could be sold to kid's matinees they were basically produced on an assembly line in the 60s and 70s.

For example- I don't know if it's true but I've always heard that possibly the worst movie in the series, known as "Godzilla's Revenge" in the west, is a result of Toho advertising the movie before they had a script. Then when a key figure in the production died they panicked and made the movie into a clip show of footage from previous Godzilla movies. With the framing device of a young boy hallucinating these clips (and imagining he's talking to Minilla) as he gathers the courage to fight bandits or something. I've got it in a Godzilla box set but never opened it, saw it in the 90s and man it was awful.

Godzilla's revenge was... bad in almost every way.
The Showa era was serious, but aimed towards kids. Campy Godzilla, but movies are very hit or miss with the later movies
The Heisei Era was my favorite, the movies were in  a more serious tone and better written, plus the had the balls to kill Godzilla as a hero.
The millenium era was strange, the effects were vastly improved but the plots were golden age comics levels of off the wall, Final Wars is perfect to set the tone.

I expect Godzilla 2014 to be similar to Godzilla 1984 (The return of Godzilla), as long as the human parts aren't terrible, I'm game.


Also, why did the trailers and Advertisements of Robocop 2014 make the movie suck? I watched it and I really like the new Robocop, not as a replacement, but as it's own thing. IMO Dredd and Robocop are 2 of the best recent remakes we've gotten

Godzilla and it was freaking awesome!
It was everything I would have wanted for a new revision of the franchise except for one tiny little thing... they should have had a remix of the original theme song during the credits.
Otherwise I loved it.
