The blockbuster theatre released movie that everyone has been waiting for since the pandemic hit last year, is finally here. The nostalgic characters of Godzilla (my childhood fave) and King Kong have epic fight scenes to the death? There’s a bit of a genre switch to a lil sci-fi midway in the film that I wasn’t expecting. Overall, fans of these characters will enjoy this film and how it all ends. The format I viewed it included Atmos. I do want to check it out again in IMAX. No end credit scenes.
Honestly, I have to see this again…I was so busy with work emails etc… that I couldn’t concentrate on the lines…yet the visuals are great in IMAX. It did remind me a little (of old school Godzilla movies), in a good nostalgic way. I don’t really think the storyline is meant to be serious or engaging, it’s all about the kind of monsters, Godzilla and more monsters, lol. NOTE: there’s an end credit scene.

This movie lives up to the hype. I enjoyed the emotional journey of this family. The movie is not shown in calendar time; it jumps around to leave you guessing on what happened that led to something else happening or what happened to certain characters. Great acting as a whole and I concur with all award shows nominations.

The movie is slow and basically tells the story of lesbians wanting acceptance of their love for one another in an era of time that a relationship such as that wasn’t accepted. I was surprised Cate didn’t get an Oscar nomination.
Wow, that’s what I thought the whole time while watching this film. I was totally captivated from beginning to end – all 3 hours! This film is NOT for anyone who will be offended by “anything”. If you’re a “religious” person, this is not the film for you. Raw, raunchy, over-the-top, and sinful behavior is mostly what this film is about and it’s depicted quite well. In my opinion, this is Leonardo DiCaprio’s best performance to date! I loved him in ‘Titanic’ yet this is a totally different kind of film. Good chemistry and acting by an ensemble cast (honorable mention of Jonah Hill). This film is depicted from a TRUE story about the life of Jordan Belfort. Leonardo definitely deserves all award nominations for his portrayal of Jordan and I hope he wins the Oscar. ALERT: This film is NOT for children or teenagers that accompany adults that you don’t want exposed to what will be shown on screen.
