Vanquish looks like it was funded with somebody’s allowance money. And if that were the case, if a bunch of plucky ragamuffins actually cobbled their lunch money to make this movie, I’d slap two more stars on this review. Alas, nope.
The first two-thirds of Moffie feels like a bucket of cold ice water, and most of the world could use a good dousing. That greatness dissipates into mere goodness, but this is still a film of haunting poetic beauty, and I heartily recommend it.
Godzilla vs. Kong won’t reshape cinema as we know it, but it also won’t make you want to chuck your TV into the Gulf of Mexico, either. If you’re in the mood for junk food, then this should more than satisfy that craving.
As you might guess, these actors all have extensive backgrounds in comedy, and they do a great job keeping Raya light-hearted and fun. Go into this film expecting exactly that, and I promise you won’t be disappointed.
