Godzilla ★★★★

Despite not having seen any of the films until now, I'd thought myself pretty knowledgeable on Godzilla simply through osmosis. I can tell you, I was not expecting such a sombre affair. A far cry from all the fighting monster gifs you see over the years.

There was a real national pain on show here. Something that's hard for me to imagine, and yet would have been less than a decade ago for many who saw it in theatres. It's like a window into that time, and feeling. A moment in history I can only ever see on the horizon, and try to comprehend.
