IT IS RARE FOR ME TO SEE A MOVIE WHEN IT’S STILL IN THEATERS BUT THANKS TO WARNER BROS I WAS ABLE TO CATCH UP ON THOSE I MISSED!
Recently the fine folks at Warner Bros (their home page is here) had sent me codes to some of their movies I missed so that I could share my thoughts on them with you. For the first part of this series we talked about Scoob, Birds of Prey, The Way Back, Goonies 4K, Beetlejuice 4K, Full Metal Jacket, Sherlock Holmes 4K and Sherlock Holmes A Game of Shadows 4K. Part 2 ‘twas massive and discussed V for Vendetta 4K, 300 4K, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy 4K, The Hobbit Trilogy 4K, Blade 4K, Bill and Ted Face the Music, Tenet and The Wolf of Snow Hollow. Part 3 talked about Wonder Woman 1984, The Little Things and Judas and the Black Messiah. Part 4 is here to discuss Tom and Jerry the Movie and Godzilla Vs Kong!
Tom and Jerry the Movie
This film starts as you’d expect, following one of our human characters and no Tom or Jerry to be seen. Chloe Grace Moretz hustles her way into a position at a swanky hotel so she can catch a glimpse of her favorite social media couple. This is about when our animated duo are brought into the story, Jerry Mouse sneaks into the same hotel and Tom is hired on to remove the mouse from the building. As to be expected things go pear shaped quite quickly and the two must redeem themselves to make things right. This isn’t one of those films where you are going to marvel at the performances or even the animation quality but if you are looking for a film that perfectly captures the look and feel of a classic Tom and Jerry feature then this will be a great film to watch with the family.
Godzilla Vs Kong
Since the last Godzilla movie the planet has been heading closer to utopia and the other titans are helping it do so. The threat of these titans though is always there- when will one of them attack or level a city? Some big corporations are afraid of the answer to this question and begin constructing a weapon capable of taking the King of the Monsters down. The same time this is going on Kong himself wants free of his containment and some scientists devise a way to transport him, knowing that the moment Kong is free Godzilla will hunt him down. This story feels more like a true sequel to the recent Kong movie with a Godzilla cameo than a sequel to the more recent Godzilla movies. There is some fascinating science discussed in the film such as Hollow Earth theory that inspired me to do some research of my own. Overall this was an enjoyable action film that put the focus on the wrong titan, or at least that’s my opinion.
