Godzilla vs. Kong
The age-old debate is finally going to be settled. Who do you think is going to win? I couldn’t imagine how Kong could possibly beat Godzilla, but then I saw the greatest ape wielding that battle axe in the trailer, so now I’m not sure. If Kong is a combination of Hulk and Thor now, maybe he can pull it off. He’s smart! He can use tools and communicate in sign language! The reviews are in, and critics are mostly describing it as delivering on the brainless spectacle it promises, which sounds pretty good to me. If I’m watching something called Godzilla vs. Kong, all I want to see is King Kong swinging Godzilla around by his tail into a skyscraper, you know? Technically this is a March release, but it’s only going to be available until April 30, so I think it can count it as an April title. And if you want to catch up on the film history of these two titans before you dive in, we’ve got a primer for that!
From Matt Zoller Seitz at RogerEbert.com:
Godzilla vs. Kong is a crowd-pleasing, smash-’em-up monster flick and a straight-up action picture par excellence. It is a fairy tale and a science-fiction exploration film, a Western, a pro wrestling extravaganza, a conspiracy thriller, a Frankenstein movie, a heartwarming drama about animals and their human pals, and, in spots, a voluptuously wacky spectacle that plays as if the creation sequence in “The Tree of Life” had been subcontracted to the makers of “Yellow Submarine.” Full Review
