Movie Review - Demon Slayer: Mugen Train

PICT MOVIE Demon Slayer Mugen Train

Here's a movie I didn't expect to be reviewing two weeks ago. I didn't know how this anime movie from a franchise unknown to me had managed to get such a plum positioning in theaters, but it was sure to lose to "Mortal Kombat" in its opening weekend and the horror movie "Separation" this past weekend. "Mortal Kombat" did indeed win the films' opening weekend - $23 million domestically to this film's $21 million, on twice as many screens. I have no doubt that this movie could have pulled a huge upset in just a few hundred more theaters.

Movie Review - Godzilla vs. Kong

"Godzilla vs Kong" is a follow-up to "Godzilla" (2014), "Kong: Skull Island" (2017), and "Godzilla: King of the Monsters" (2019). Those films are respectively known as the one that kills off Bryan Cranston too early and cuts away from a monster fight that should have been the most exciting sequence in the movie, the one where someone stretched a "Viet Kong" joke out to two hours, and the one with a human villain who ripped off their evil plan from Thanos.
