Shin Godzilla is having a limited showing in Sydney, and as this film was directed by Hideaki Anno, the famed director of Neon Genesis Evangelion, I decided to go and watch it. I highly enjoyed the movie, but before I elaborate on what makes Shin Godzilla a great Godzilla movie, I will warn that there are spoilers below, though I will try to be vague about specific plot points.
Very excited for this Godzilla film directed by Hideaki Anno (Evangelion). Reviews from Japan have been glowing and I can’t wait to listen to the soundtrack by Shiro Sagisu.
In a break from my usual posts recommending anime, I have an actual proper television show to talk about. Well, it’s a Netflix show, so who knows if that is technically television (or something superior)… but regardless, you should watch Stranger Things. Stranger Things is a Netflix original show which begins with the mystery of the disappearance of a child in a small town in America in the 80’s, but that mystery quickly becomes a supernatural sci-fi horror mystery. It is an homage to a bunch of stuff from the 80’s and gets inspiration from Stephen King, Dean Koontz, E.T. and more. But apart from a very interesting story and good atmosphere, there is some stellar acting especially from the children. I don’t want to spoil too much, but a great part of the show is showing a bunch of different sets of characters attempting to solve the mystery before their storylines intertwine for a satisfying conclusion.
