I'll just stick with Logans Run.
Once was enough with the Island.

Next 7/10

Such a weird ending for this kind of movie. Itís like a superhero flick where they stop the movie right before the last half hour of climactic ending. Probably ran out of money. The movie needed to be an hour longer.

It was pretty much what I expected. I found it enjoyable but I'm not watching for storyline as much as I am the big guys going at it. On a writing level, I felt the whole hollow earth storyline was a bit over the top. I know Kong wouldn't have found his Axe and without it, but I would have been content with Millie Bobbie Brown storyline although with the addition of maybe a couple other characters spending more time trying to find out what was making Godzilla attack "humans". The Mechagodzilla storyline seemed rushed, but in the end, it is what it is.
Yep, I share your thoughts on this. I thought Kong wielding an ax, and having a chair/throne in the hollow earth (and I guess it was a 'Kong community'), was a bit over-the-top, something I wasn't really comfortable with... Even though the Godzilla films of the past do give the giant monsters more human-level intelligence from time to time, it's been inconsistent, where they seem to have human-level intelligence in one thing, but not for most other things.

The Meca-godzilla ending did seem a bit rushed.

I really liked the Island. I don't remember the action ending very well, but I do recall a chase scene, but it definitely didn't bother me.

Yeah, I never had the desire to watch The Island again, but wouldn't turn down watching it with someone else. It's similar to Logan, THX and many others, but being raised a clone for harvesting your organs was a new twist.

Really liked Next too. I don't recall the ending. But I no doubt wished they had done so much more with the concept.

The Levenger Tapes adds a nice twist to the found footage genre. What happened? Who made it? It keeps you interested and that's to their credit. Acting is not superior quality, but decent by FF standards.

Worth a watch.

Yes, the concept was great.


By the way, am I still the only person here who's seen "The Kid Detective"?
That movie is freakin good.

Violation 2/10

The only thing you will remember from this snoozefest is a 20 seconds look at an erect cock. So if that's what you would like to see in a movie then THIS is the MOVIE for YOU!
