Is This Something?

Godzilla Minus One, set shortly after World War II and offering a new "first appearance" of Gojira, is getting very good reviews. Alachai Queen raves and Film Threat calls it the best Godzilla movie ever made. They all seem to agree that the human story in the movie is very good.

Another movie coming out soon is the Angel Studios production The Shift. It's confirmed that "The Benefactor" is the devil. The story is a sci-fi retelling of the Book of Job. Greg Owens gave it a good review but added this caution: The movie doesn't signal well enough that the beginning is supposed to be confusing not just for the main character but for the audience. If you don't realize the movie intends you to be confused, you'll feel like you've missed something. But you haven't; the movie just didn't signal its intention well enough. He advises to just accept that you're going to be confused in the early-going and everything will make sense sometime in the second act.

Tom Collins at Midnight's Edge was a little frustrated because the movie wears it Christianity on its sleeve, and he thinks that if had just trusted more in subtext than explicit reference, the film could have been a breakout hit with mainstream viewers not even realizing they were watching a the Book of Job in sci-fi trappings.

By the way, the actor playing "The Benefactor" in that movie was cancelled for a few years by Hollywood for refusing to do a sex scene.

He also did that funny Cadillac commercial in 2014.


Opening today on the Daily Wire: Lady Ballers, a comedy about men playing women in basketball by pretending to be "trans." Which is itself mostly pretend, anyway.

Rita Pahini notes that the left is (as usual) having conniptions about the movie, but points out that Dylan Mulvaney mocks women in his own gender LARPing. A scene from the movie showing a man pretending to be a woman is taken directly from Dylan Mulvaney's "365 Days of Girlhood."


So here's a movie I'd definitely like to see. It's pretty much a Cafe in movie form.


Here's one that will spark some dissent. On one hand, Hollywood's attacking the Man-O-Verse, and so you know going in this is going to be stupid.

On the other hand, many, many thrillers make hay out of a Current Thing, hyperbolizing it, exaggerating it to the breaking point, and then sticking a murder plot into it, and it sometimes works.

(Remember when George Bush was president and Low-Information Voters heard for the first time that Skull and Bones is an organization that exists in the world and within a couple of years we had like three different teen thrillers based on Skull and Bones?)

Didn't they just make a movie about the toxic parts of highly-masculine warrior culture called The Art of Self-Defense? And didn't that movie also star Jesse Eisenberg as a humiliated, emasculated nerd looking to gain strength and self-respect, but who gets taken in by an intense but charismatic psychopath building an empire on the dead bodies of his followers?

Yeah they just did make that movie. (It was pretty decent.)

All thrillers have the exact same plot. They just differ according to what Current Thing is causing psychological sress to a certain critical mass of the population (say, around 10% of all moviegoers) and can be profitably exploited by adding a couple of murders to it. And I like a lot of them.

Daisy Ridley got pretty screwed by agreeing to be in Kaffeine Kennedy's trashfire Star Wars movies. She's barely in anything now. Hopefully she's good in this and can escape the stench of Lucasfilm.

Not sure about this family-of-pro-wrestlers movie The Iron Claw. The trailer only hints at the dark nature of the story -- five of the six brothers died young, and most of them died by their own hands.

I predict this movie about the GameStop Stonk play will piss me off. Seth Rogen's in it, for starters.


This looks kind of funny. But it's on Peacock, so it might as well be playing on Neptune.
