    Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 Thrice Upon a Time

    ★★★★★

    “Goodbye, all Evangelions.”

    An incredible, mature, visually stunning, meta, cathartic, and ultimately moving story about growing up.

    Full review at the Midwest Film Journal.

    I’m glad this movie took 9 years to make. I’m glad that I had the time to grow, as Anno did. I don’t think 2012 Anno could have made this film, as much as 2012 Alex wouldn’t have been ready for it nor simply got it the way I do now. I’m glad it came in…

    “I’m Noa. Hathaway Noa.”

    Fantastically directed by Shūkō Murase, Mobile Suit Gundam Hathaway has Gundam’s UC timeline roaring back to prominence and prestige adapting original Gundam creator Tomino’s long thought unadaptable trilogy of novels - Hathaway’s Flash. A direct sequel to Char’s Counterattack, in which he also had a small role, Hathaway follows the titular character, son of famous Gundam character Bright Noa, as the leader of the terrorists organisation Mafty as they seek to fight against the destruction and privatisation of…

    “We’ll be okay.”

    An incredible achievement by Hamaguchi and co. The road behind might be tough, but it’s shaped who we are. Acceptance means the open road to the future lies ahead, wherever we want to go.

    ★★★½

    “Would our destinies have been reversed?”

    Pretty solid Heroic Bloodshed from Benny Chan in his last outing before he passed, and it sits well with pride within his oeuvre. A bit like Chan’s New Police Story but with Donnie Yen and this time Nicholas Tse and his hair is the bad(ish) guy. The story is nothing amazing but there’s a bunch of interesting themes about what makes right, the past being inescapable, the value of brotherhood and some good nuggets…

    ★★★★★

    Part of the Godzilla Ranking Project.

    Over 50 years later and still holds up like a sonofabitch. Terrifying, awe inspiring, gut wrenching, haunting. I mean, holy shit, the mother holding her three kids as Godzilla closes in close by telling not to worry, they'll be with their dad soon. The palpable fear. The terror of Godzilla AND the atom bomb. The evacuation scenes.

    Jesus.

    That theme music.

    Part of Godzilla & Friends, Ranked.

    “The myths are real. There was a war. And they’re the last ones standing.“

    Look, I’m gonna go out on a limb and say half of the critics here and at large don’t know what a Godzilla movie actually is; yes there are a few Very Serious movies but let’s be honest, much of the series is giant monster wrestling matches who, if you look close enough, can also have a message . And look,…
