Aww, look… Toho got me a 50th Birthday present:
Shin Gojira (2016)
… in which we learn (as the Japanese did in real life in March, 2011) that the only thing worse than a radioactive menace devastating your country is a hidebound bureaucracy intent on covering its o-shiri. You have never seen a Godzilla movie quite like this one.
I wanted to get this capsule review/reminder posted immediately, since the movie is still being shown domestically. If you’re in the US and haven’t gone to see it yet, you still have time: it’s playing until Tuesday, October 18th at select theaters across the country. Check for the closest theater in your area here.Will Laughlin is the Braineater.
