There's more comedy in this film than the prequel Thor films. And I like it. I was very entertained. I can see a lot of audience laughs at the scene of the characters. It's not that too serious. It's just right comedy and fits the plot.

Korg. Don't be deceived by his physical appearance. Sorry to spoil you but he's the funniest character in the film :D

Also, a praise for the OST of this film. It sounds retro. It blends with the colorful design of the title.

Some moviegoers said there's still a last end credit scene aside to the mid-credit scene. I regret missing the last one because my bladder is going to explode. The film length is more than two hours long. So take ease with drinking your softdrinks when watching this film. You wouldn't want to miss the funny and important scenes.

My rating for this movie is: 4.3 / 5.0

Movie Review: Godzilla [ ゴジラ | Gojira ] (1954) | The 1st Godzilla Film

I first learned of Godzilla in the 90s. I was too young back that time. I feel happy whenever I saw a movie trailer of it in a TV commercial. The movie trailer is black and white. Later on, Cable channel is booming in every home. I was able to watch another Godzilla movie on cable TV. As far as I can remember, Star Movies channel aired it. The Godzilla movie I watched is colored but I wasn't able to watch it fully. Just only half of it.

I'm already an adult and I realized, I've never watched a full Godzilla movie. Any of it. I mean, In the past, I watched some of it but I'm not always on schedule. You can't pause or replay movies on cable TV during those times. Nowadays, you can watch them anywhere online - free or paid. So, I decided to watch the first Godzilla movie.

Title: Godzilla [ ゴジラ | Gojira ]
Director: Ishirō Honda
Producer: Tomoyuki Tanaka
Story: Shigeru Kayama
Cast: Akira Takarada, Momoko Kōchi, Akihiko Hirata, Takashi Shimura

Official Trailer:



WARNING: the following review below contains spoilers!

We watched this film last December 24, 2015, before Christmas. I'm excited to watch this film because the old casts still played their original role even after so many years of the long wait since the last episode.

The traditional Star Wars slide intro is still there briefing us what have happened in the past 30 years, after the destruction of the Death Star (featured in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi - Episode VI). I praise the new Director for remaining faithful on using that slide animation. So, about what have happened, It's still the Resistance versus the Dark Side!

The Dard side of the force still lives. I guess, It relatively runs in their blood.

I like the scene where one of the Commander Hux is shouting his propaganda to The First Order army. It gets me goosebumps. It's very Hitler-like. After that scene, their base, the planet itself fired a huge laser beam out in the outer space and scattered at some point hitting multiple planets. Those multiple planets are destroyed in just one shot!

I thought, It would be a happy ending after Han Solo met Kylo Ren but didn't expect Kylo would do the unexpected scene. I guess many Star Wars fans hate Kylo Ren more than Jar Jar Binks from the prequel trilogy.

It's more than two hours film but I didn't felt the time goes by while watching this movie.


My rating for this film would be: 4.0 / 5.0

Thanks!
