HERE IT IS! The sequel to the best Tokusatsu movie the West has ever produced. The first movie was kickass, stupid and smashy robot fight fest! The sequel does not disappoint in that department. The story doesn't seem clunky and forced. It flows naturally from the original and John Boyega is a much superior main … Continue reading Pacific Rim: Uprising (2018)
Magnificent. Simply magnificent. Meryl Streep is her usual fantastic self. I have never seen her as a weak character before, and she did it brilliantly. She displays meek characteristics so naturally you think you're looking at someone else.

It basically is don't play video games but it's undercut by the movie saying every two seconds "hey do you remember this game? Here's … Continue reading Ready Player One (2018)
