winter_elf: Sherlock Holmes (BBC) with orange soft focus (Blow Something Up)
A pretty standard 'B' movie. One that was amusing more for laughing at the screen. It had Kevin Bacon & Jeff Bridges chewing scenery and making jokes ..... and not a whole lot else tying it together. Not bad, but not noteworthy.

This is actually an excellent one to rent and have a few friends over and make a MST3K party for it.

Rating: 3 stars

GO SEE IT!

Very well done action Giant Robot vs. Giant Monster mash up! It was a lot of fun. Some stand out acting, some super awesome fight choreography, good story, beautiful and functional designs (and some wicked monsters) and great music. The director knows what he's doing and brings his A game.

Do you like/watch Anime? Do you like Godzilla movies? Then yes, this is a wonderful homage to all those anime meck type movies and giant monster movies.

I've already seen it twice. This is one that seeing it on the large screen is a bonus. If you can swing it - I would recommend the IMAX 3D version. 2D was good - but the IMAX will blow you away!

PS - small funny bit mid way through credits.

Rating: 5 Stars!
