Comments– Well that was epic. Somehow I missed this growing up, even though it came out at a time where I was watching all the big name action movies of the day. Going back and watching it now, it was nothing more than a fun summer blockbuster. I can understand a lot of the points given about the negatives of the movie, but I enjoyed it. It got a bit far-fetched (even for a Godzilla movie) later in the film, but Matthew Broderick did a nice job of trying to keep the comedic touch to the film that it needed. Bridgette was laughing her ass off quite a bit throughout, and enjoyed it more than I did. It was fun to see what kind of special effects a $130,000,000 budget could drum up back in 1998. Memorable-Great.
Branden has been a film fan since he was young, roaming the halls of Blockbuster Video, trying to find the grossest, scariest looking VHS covers to rent and watch alone in the basement. It wasn’t until recently, though, that Branden started seeking out the classics of cinema, and began to develop his true passion for the art form. Branden approaches each film with the unique perspective of having studied the art from the inside, having both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in acting. He has been a film critic since 2010, and has previously written for Inside Pulse Movies, We Love Cult, and Diehard Gamefan. His biggest achievement as a film critic, to date, has been founding Cinefessions and turning it from a personal blog to a true film website, housing hundreds of film and television reviews, and dozens of podcasts.
