Kong vs Godzilla. The last two zilla in hollywood films have been so-so, though the last one at least had lots of other monsters, but the best thing about them is that the new hollywood CGI godzilla looks really quite excellent. having seen the old godzilla movies from the 60s and 70s recently, while enjoyable, that old one looked a bit dopey, and was often prone to weird bouts of playing catch and other silly things with other monsters. this new godzilla however, looks bloody amazing. more scary, but also more detailed, and more fluid in his movements. kong looks like a gorilla pensioner, his face is all haggard, he looks like hes been dragged out of retirement, but seeing him do sign language was strangely touching, seeing him break out of his chains to defend himself made me emotional. the relationship with the little girl started to feel a bit like old sugary spielberg, and a lot of stuff happens in this film without much anticipation, and there was some cool stuff about getting two extremely large monsters deep into the earths core (i think), then you get to see a new version of mechgodzilla, and then they all had a massive face off, one of the evil corporate bezos/musk-ish baddies meets a delicious end, and actually i cant remember if kong and godzilla united together or what, but it was pretty great. made me think i need to started watching MMA. id def watch this again. much better than the first cow film.

Con Air was great if youre in the mood for something stupid and completely removed from the times. Great cast in a kind of slap dash non sensical way (nic cage, dave chappelle, john malkovich, steve buscemi, ving rhames, john cusack, danny trejo)

I've almost watched exclusively dumb movies for nearly a year now. In my head Im maintaining some dialogue that its a journalistic endeavor on my end to observe how presentation of the Real has warped over time but I could be and likely am lying to myself.

Con Air has a lot to answer for, it's basically the Hollywood Action Movie equivalent of Robbie Williams' 'Let Me Entertain You' or Boris Johnson as PM.
