Apologies for the lack of updated, my vacations have been pretty hectic. My family kept me super busy day and night, and I had very little time for myself (and to misbehave).

In fact, I had few guys wanting to meet me, including some locals, some Brazilians and a Colombian… Since my life in Canada is English and French, it’s kinda cute yet amusing flirting in different types of Spanish and dirty words.

Anyhow, during this vacations I watched three films:

JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 3 – PARABELLUM

I’m a fan of the John Wick franchise and this one fits right in. I do have to say, in my opinion is the weakest of the 3, but still amazing.

Pure action, epic fighting scenes (specially the part with the horses and the dogs) and tremendous cast. Anjelica Houston was mesmerising, Halle Berry was convincing for once, and Keanu Reeves was engaging, as usual.

Spectacular!!

GODZILLA: KING OF THE MONSTERS

Godzilla was definitely a “meh” outing. The story telling was not compelling and suffered from poor pacing. In other words was way too long and useless blah blah…

However, watching the CGI monsters in action was glorious!

Like all kaijū movies, it only requires awesome monsters, epic fight scenes and some subtle social commentary.

Could have been better.

DARK PHOENIX

Dark Phoenix is the end of the X-Men as we know it. 

However, “Logan” is the proper finale to the “X-Men” film series. “Dark Phoenix” has minimal action. No climax. Boring acting… is so disappointing that it doesn’t deserve that honour.

Bad movie and worse than the other Phoenix story.

As artful as the first trailer for Warner Bros.’ upcoming Godzilla: King of the Monsters was, it was sorely lacking in the way of epic, city-destroying kaiju battles. A disappointment considering just how many classic monsters (Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis King Ghidorah) are slated to appear in the film.

The second trailer, thankfully, is a remedy to that. But let’s watch both:

While there’s obviously going to be a human component to the film, Warner Bros. knows that what we’re really here for are the monsters and, just look at them go. FANTASTIC!!

And don’t it get wrong, they’re here to kill us, so our planet can survive.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters hits theaters May 31, 2019. 

You’ve heard of the travelling gnome, now here’s the travelling Godzilla figurine. His name is Ryan and he travels with his human, Kieran, all around, getting into all sorts of shenanigans.

Kieran bought Ryan as a souvenir in a comic shop for 8 bucks. He got the idea when it was easier to take photos of Ryan in front of landmarks that he visited. Then he started to develop his Photoshop skills and share on Instagram.

Each photo takes about 4 hours to Photoshop and all is made in the fun.

 Fantastic!!! 

Haruo Nakajima, the suit actor who played Godzilla from 1954’s Godzilla to 1972’s Godzilla vs. Gigan, has died. He was 88.

Nakajima started his career playing small bit roles, but his big break was bringing Godzilla to life in its seminal debut. He would go on to play the character for the 12 consecutive films that followed over the next 18 years.

While the gig paid well, Nakajima said he didn’t initially get the respect he deserved donning the 100 kilogram Godzilla suit. “Back then, people didn’t speak positively of suit actors,” says Nakajima. “There’d be whispers going around that working inside (a suit) is not an acting job.”

The character he played is one of the most famous in movie history.

According to Sponichi Annex, Nakajima died yesterday afternoon after contracting pneumonia.

Rest in peace legendary sir!


Shin Godzilla is a Japanese production from the Toho company that first created Godzilla 50 years ago. Now the father of all monsters is back in a limited release film that will show in the US and Canada October 11-18. It tells the usual tale of a radioactive LEGEND coming out of the ocean to destroy a Japanese city because those Japanese bitches eat too much dolphin and assorted sea creatures, and Godzilla is tired of their shit… or something like that. You GO Godzilla!

The movie is in Japanese with English subtitles and looks better than the last two American Godzilla movies combined. Not that it’s hard. Those movies sucked giant lizard peen.

Leave it to the originators to really know how to make a Godzilla movie that make us excited and nostalgic. CAN’T WAIT!

There’s no dialogue or story information here, just some sweeping orchestral music, shots of concerned Japanese officials, screaming civilians, and the largest, freakiest-looking incarnation of Godzilla ever brought to screen.


The film is directed by two legends: Hideaki Anno and Shinji Higuchi… who was the special effects director for the three Gamera films of the late ’90s. Widely considered three of the best-looking giant monster movies ever made because GAMERA is pretty boss too.


Shin Godzilla is expected to hit Japanese theaters this summer, then reach western shores as Godzilla Resurgence later this year.

This trailer alone had more Godzilla than the entirety of 2014 Hollywood Godzilla movie. In other words, I MUST SEE it!!!

Today’s Google Doodle celebrates the 114th birthday of Japanese special effects director Eiji Tsubaraya, who was one of the co-creators of Godzilla and the main force behind Ultraman. Mr Tsuburaya is a Japanese icon and in addition to his movies, he also inspired a line of sake and made World War II propaganda for his country.

In his doodle, users are invited to play a game which involves various monster movie settings, including destroying tanks and spaceships. Tsuburaya was a special effects innovator and is considered one of the most influential movie visionaries of all time.

Mr Tsuburaya died in 1970 at the age of 68, but his legacy lives forever. THANK YOU SIR!!
