"Takes itself awfully seriously for a film with nothing to say about anything. Well paced and acted so worth a watch for that but also broad and vague enough that you could project any sort of political ideology onto it. Not a smart film by any means. "

"Same as the first one - too much focus on boring human drama and not enough on kaiju throwing down, which is what we're all here to see. There are long stretches where none of them are on screen at all and that's just not acceptable. The monster action we do get is pretty cool though and Mothra getting multiple big hero moments made me happy."

"Ultimately a great show about the ways in which violence shapes people and perpetuates itself though them. There’s some dodgy writing in the immediate post book era but it comes together for a very strong final season. The tidal wave of garbage discourse following each episode was very tiring but I'll miss the show itself a lot."

"This isn't a good movie at all, it's full of awkward exposition and cliched plot beats. HOWEVER I am a totally uncritical fan of this franchise so I'm going to give it a good score anyway. The jokes mostly land (even though most of them were in the trailer) and Pikachu himself is an incredible creation that totally avoids the uncanny valley weirdness that some of the other designs fall into. It also goes full ridiculous in the final act in a very entertaining way. Overall score: Pokemon/10"

"Borrows liberally from Evangelion and that's never going to be a flattering comparison. It's still a good show with an immersive atmosphere and some interesting characters but when you invite comparison to the best 'good' isn't really going to cut it."

"A remake of Pitch Black that takes like an hour and a half for the main plot to actually kick in. A disappointing end to this classic trilogy."

"This is so frustratingly close to being good. Premise is classic Lovecraft and there's some really cool imagery/set design that holds up surprisingly well. Too bad it's all wasted in the hands of a total hack. If they'd hired a real director for this it could've been a classic."
