Godzilla (Blu-ray Review)

It is great to see a movie like this treated with a level of respect.  While Godzilla can be boiled down to a giant monster causing a rampage in a city, the fact that the film (as well as its marketing) had a level of restraint in how to actually depict the sort of chaos […]
