An entirely unfunny dull unmemorable “blackface” uncomedy about spiritual healing and achieving gestalt. It looks like it is entirely driven by the Mike Myers. And if he (ever) was in edgy and linecrossing crass shock comedy genre, by the time of Austin Powers he was on the same level as 10 years old me; by […]
English language. It starts like a kind of a remake of the original, but being in tune with environmentalist and post-colonialist Zeitgeist, humanity takes a different approach to a giant ape, they want to study it instead of exploiting it in a pre-capitalist manner. Therefore, the plot is driven by almost post-CCA moustache twirling evilguy […]
Terrible English subtitles, probably from the DVD-release. Hermaphrodad and his son. Most of Toho movies aren’t actually focused on giant monsters, even if they have them. Sometimes it’s an atomic age sci-fi, sometimes it’s saving the world against paramilitary invasion, sometimes it’s a caution tale about greed. This one is another Nippon-free side-story, but it’s […]
A time-travel relationship-fixing movie, with young adult aesthetic, inspired, but not focusing on, by 2010s gendercore neo-hipster marginal millzoomer art era. On a plus side it avoids being formulaic as a whole, and goes two steps beyond, but then it has several dumb trope bits, which therefore are meaningless and lead nowhere. One is used […]
Boy and his giant iron extra terrestrial Bulgasari number 5. There are some attempts to make stupid genre tropes make sense, but all those don’t matter, because all the tropes related to the title character are played straight and the first meeting sequence is rushed to the point of being absolutely artificial. The ending is […]
English subtitles. Он разложился на плесень и на липовый мёд. It seems like this is a direct loose sequel to the first film, but the cast is different and the (not good) ending is retconned, since the water guy is new one, and the mountain guy is old one, instead of the other way around. […]
English translation. A movie, which was obviously impressed by Escape from New York, and it still does a better work at being Mad Max than first two. The overall story is above average and the characters are quite colourful.
