Looks like there's a Lovecraftian touch to it. I'm intrigued

But I must say I don't get the hype. I think its pacing was bizarre, and it didn't seem to know whether it wanted to be a full-blown musical or not. The beginning of the movie seems to be one song after another, but later on, as the dramatic tension rises, songs are mostly forgotten. It's as if they put in a song when they didn't know how else to fill in the time.
And, in my opinion, the less said about Olaf, the better.
But on the whole it was still pretty good. I guess it just isn't really my kind of thing is all.

o.O; I thought the same thing after I saw it...especially about the weird pacing. Didn't mind Olaf tho'.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2
A solid sequel from Marvel that captures the same fun as the original. It was nice that we finally got a villain who wasn't there to be a scowling bad guy to be blown up like other throw away Marvel villains. Kurt Russel as Ego was great in his role, and seemed perfectly reasonable in his goals up until one pivotal moment I won't spoil. The ultimate scene stealer was Yondu who every scene he had was filled with laughs. Although, I feel this film is not quite as good as the first one. The character Nebula felt dry and didn't bring much to the film, as I feel more time should have been dedicated to exploring Ayesha who was nothing more than a golden piece of wood. The middle half of the film drags once the characters visit Ego's planet and kind of sit around for a while. The appearance of Sly Stallone in the movie was a surprise, who I hope will return in a sequel. One of the stronger Marvel films to come out in recent years.

I found this a rather mediocre sequel that failed to do anything overly new with the Alien creature or the world. What Ridley Scott here has done is continue his Prometheus story,only this time make David the main character who is also the villain. This film on its own feels about on par with the last one, only with more of the xenomorph actually in it. Any intrigue he established in the last movie with the engineers is written off in a abrupt flashback which seemed to only add more disappointment to them as poorly thought out in general, with fans having much more interesting ideas of where to have taken them. Rather than focus on the fear of the Alien being an unstoppable horror and surprising us with new things from it, Ridley Scott has turned his sci fi tale into a self indulgent story about creationism. I find the character David an allegory for how egotistical and up his own ass the director is. Making bible references in your sci fi horror is not deep or meaningful. It's tripe. Just like this movie.

Leo the Lion (2013). A film I was more or less dared to watch. I don't think I can give it a rating because it is so incomprehensibly bad that it's good. Kind of like Sharknado, but in an entirely different league of bad. I recommend watching it for the sheer WTF factor, which increases exponentially with running time. If you get motion sickness or are easily disoriented, I recommended skipping the first 90 seconds.

Well I had some hype for this movie, as this was a radical new take on Godzilla. After all these years Toho finally took a risk on reinventing Godzilla to be something different than the same old lizard that saves humanity from another monster. While this new version I feel is not as cool looking as the Legendary Godzilla, it does have an interesting evolution. What ultimately is wrong with the movie is the complete hollowness of it. Their are no real characters set up, as they are just walking mouthpieces who sit down and talk about government things for most of the movie. What should have been witnessed is more carnage from the ground view of people being trapped and crushed in the devastation left behind, holding back on what the aftermath of disaster survivors go through and the trauma that no real Godzilla movie has yet to touch. The effects for a japanese film were pretty good considering this Godzilla was CGI...although its smaller forms do look incredibly dodgy. The climax of the movie was very anti-climatic with Godzilla not so much defeated but temporarily halted until the next movie rolls around. It feels relatively on par with the last American remake, and could use some fun the 1998 remake had.
