Godzilla (2014)

reviewed by: max crawford "the eventual climactic monster showdown is everything a godzilla fan could hope for." if you're a film in 2014 and you're still relegating female characters to tragic backstory or hero's moping wife roles, you need to sit down and have a word with yourself. the only female… character with any real agency in gareth edwards' godzilla is a 300-foot monster that eats nuclear submarines. it's a shame, because it's the sort of film you want to be shouting about from the rooftops, and adding niggling little caveats somewhat ruin the effect. not only is it an astounding spectacle, it's a proper godzilla movie, spitting atomic fire in the face of roland emmerich's misbegotten 1998 atrocity. the opening titles set the tone: over a montage of 1950s atomic bomb tests, the credits appear alongside tantalising snippets of information which are quickly whited out as if by a censor. the sequence was designed by kyle cooper, the man behind the main titles for se7en and every other film with a decent main title sequence, and it neatly reflects the teasing approach taken to revealing big g himself. that's right, there's plenty of trivial human nonsense to be gotten out of the way before we encounter any monsters at all, let alone their king. if you simply must have humans in your film, bryan cranston and juliette binoche are two pretty solid picks. their early scenes in a nuclear power plant in tokyo lend the film a grounding and emotional heft that's rare in a summer … (Read More)

The Blob (1988)

Meg Penny is a cheerleader out on her first date with one of the football players, Paul Taylor. It doesn't go very well. Before they get where they're going, an old vagrant runs out in front of Paul's car, screaming in terror. The old man is closely followed by Brian Flagg, the local teen rebel, com…plete with long hair, black leather jacket, motorcycle and tough-guy attitude. Paul blames Brian for chasing the old man, but after the threesome takes him to the doctor's office, it becomes clear the vagrant had more to worry about than some young tough. He was screaming because of the acid-like substance on his hand - a substance that spreads over his body and eventually consumes him. Soon, the growing red blob, which sprouts tentacles to attack its victims, becomes a menace to the small town of Arbeville, Colorado. The military soon arrives in Hazmat suits, led by the wide-eyed Dr. Christopher Meddows. They're from the government, they say, and they want to help; but Brian's distrust for authority figures proves justified when he learns of their true motives. (Read More)
