Godzilla: King of the Monsters in AMC Dolby

It wouldn’t be summer without a Blockbuster Monster Movie to open the season. It looks like “Godzilla: King of the Monsters” is wearing those shoes…

New story centered around the efforts of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch as its members come in contact with and have to battle a wide range of god-sized monsters, including Godzilla.

Godzilla collides with Mothra, Rodan and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah. When these ancient super-species whom were thought to be mere myths actually rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity’s very existence hanging in the balance. The story unfolds from there…

New Story, same outcome. It just took a bit longer to get there… This story involved Scientists actually harvesting the monsters in specific locations around the world and trying to control them via sound waves and other scientific technology.

The monsters that Godzilla fought were a lot more menacing than Godzilla himself. The movie was slow and dragged painfully to the ultimate fight. I found myself a bit bored and ready to leave before the movie was over. At the end, I left disappointed. There are other Godzilla installments that are way better than this one. I even saw this in AMC Dolby which means you feel everything in your seat.

“Godzilla: King of the Monsters” is not the movie to start your summer movie going experience with.

This is a 2 Star Movie!!

Long Shot

Fred Flarsky (Seth Rogen) is a gifted Journalist who has an affinity for trouble. Charlotte Field (Charlize Theron) is the Secretary of State who plans to run for the 2020 Presidential nomination. They both meet at a party, but wait!! Recognition dawns on them. Charlotte was Fred’s baby sitter when he was twelve. Fred was madly in love with Charlotte at that time. Now Fred wonders if he has any remote chance with Charlotte. Charlotte is going places because she is very influential. The two come together by accident and the story unfolds from there…

“Long Shot” is funny, refreshing and a bit different. I wasn’t sure about the on-screen chemistry between Charlize Theron and Seth Rogen, but it does work. At least they make it work. The comedy is funny.

“Long Shot” is definitely an adult film. Charlize Theron was great in this movie. She is good with comedy.

“Long Shot” is worth a look.

This is a 3 ½ Star Movie!!

Den of Thieves

The Los Angeles Branch of the Federal Reserve takes roughly $120 million dollars out of circulation and destroys it every day. There is an elite band of bank robbers who believe they can pull of the ultimate heist and get the money before it’s destroyed, but they will have to do it under the noses of LA’s most elite Law enforcement group. The story unfolds from there…

“Oh What a Tangled Web We Weave When We are Trying to Deceive.” That about sums up “A Den of Thieves”. With the exception of a few dead spots the movie is entertaining, full of suspense, action and intrigue. There are a few surprise twists and turns also.

The paid critics were “Luke-Warm” about “Den of Thieves”, but I thought it was pretty good. It’s an enjoyable “Heist Drama”.

If you enjoyed the 1995 movie “Heat”, I say throw caution to the wind and check out “Den of Thieves”.

This is a 3 Star Movie!
