"Mortal Engines" First Reviews

First reviews are out for "Mortal Engines"

Reviews are not good, so far. And, I'm not surprised. This always seemed like an odd idea. And, I still can't believe that anyone is still making YA adaptations.

"Mortal Engines" has an early premiere on Thursday, then goes into regular release on Friday.

"Day of the Dead" Movie Review

"Day of the Dead" (1985) ★★1/2 Romero's Reagan-era installment features some of his most biting (get it?) social commentary, added to the grisly goings on. And, Romero again proves that he was the all-time master of the zombie genre.

As with previous "Dead" films, Romero does bog himself down in heavy dialogue scenes that could have done with editing, and getting to the point faster. Plus, his human villains are way over the top and make the film overly cartoonish. You are to be forgiven if you sit there begging for the carnage to start.

Romero's social commentary this time is with the military mindset taking over and, in the process, bringing things down. You get the point quickly.

So, it's one hour of that, followed by the zombies finally running amok. This allows Special Make-Up Effects master Tom Savini to be unchained and work his magic. But, even in the final 40 minutes, half of it is still all dialogue and listening to the crazy militarists.

And, that is by far the best aspect of this installment, which still can't hold a candle to the all-time masterpiece "Dawn of the Dead" from 1978.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters - First Trailer

Trailer: Godzilla: King of the Monsters - Official Trailer 1 - YouTube

Official Site: Godzilla Movie - Warner Brothers

Having yet another group of charisma-free actors in a Godzilla movie doesn't help. And, are all the monster scenes going to happen in the dark again? Is the budget too low to show the monster battles so we can see them?

The film premieres May 2019.
