Watched all 3 Matrix films last night, crikey what a slog! Good stuff but film 2 is boring in parts.
Is it horror? Is it sci-fi? Is it dystopian fantasy? Probably a combination of the 3, mixed in with some comedy. One of the oddest films I've seen in a while, but very good.
Godzilla Vs Kong
Zero character development and idiotic dialogue. It’s one of those movies that knows how nonsensical its science is so it gets the characters to talk really fast in order to camouflage the stupidity of what they’re saying. It’s also got the standard plucky teenagers helping to save the world (which really, really irritates me). Maybe I should have been a Scooby Doo villain (I could have watched a decent movie it it weren’t for you meddling kids).
I enjoyed the first two Godzilla movies and even thought Skull Island wasn’t too bad. This was easily the worst so far in this reboot. It was so stupid in places that it reminded me of a Transformers movie. Great fight sequences though, and I suppose mindless monster mayhem is about all one watches a movie like this for.
and the very laudable moral that when family of any sort comes together everyone benefits.
I believe that the "moral of a story" is a general truth and not an absolute one. There are always exceptions to the moral of a story, but that doesn't mean we should avoid a general truth because it is not absolute truth.Personally I find that a very dubious moral message to send out as the solution to all ills given the vast number of child abuse cases, incest, and violence against women and older members of society that were kept hidden by the families concerned 'sticking together'.
And outwith the genetic family unit... "of any sort"? A lot of cults think of themselves as family. Heaven's Gate, The Branch Davidians, The People's Temple...
