Godzilla vs. Kong

King Kong is not a happy camper. You wouldn't be either if you were kept in a giant VR stadium. Godzilla? He's got a bad case of heartburn; so we find these two titans in pretty foul moods in "Godzilla vs. Kong."

After an absence, Godzilla rises from the deep in an attempt to take out Apex Cybergenics. No, he's not an anti-capitalist. But humans die and it's a pretty big PR blow to his image. Maybe he's been listening to Bernie (Brian Tyree Henry), a conspiracy theory enthusiast and host of "Titan Truth Podcast." He realizes something hanky is about to go down with those two titans. Who's really listening to him? It's Madison Russell (Millie Bobby Brown) and her fellow teen buddy Josh (ironically in a van reminiscent of the Mystery Machine). This comically unlikely trio thinks they know what's really going on with Godzilla and want to break into Apex— or what's left of it. And who wouldn't think they could? After all, this is a popcorn action movie where such things are plausible. We've come to expect this behavior from Madison as she has a prior relationship with the big lizard. I mean she's old enough to drive now, and she's at that age where she declares to her scientist father she really understands him!

Meanwhile, these meddling teens and their friend are not too far off from the truth as scientists think a battle royale between the two behemoths is possible. And when the pair do engage, it's like two gigantic toddlers tossing around a game of Battleship. A friend of mine who's a fan of these titans says he doesn't like seeing his friends fight. But that's exactly what you're bound to get (as the title gives that away). Yes, Kong has a mean right hook (and a preteen who seems to be the only one who understands him as well). However, If you're a fan of either of the pair, mean right hooks, conspiracy theories, or fantasy adventures— this will be right up your alley. Don't go looking too deep for a believable plot; Godzilla goes fathoms below and he still can't find it. That being said, it's certainly a fun adventure.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters This is the wrong place to come if you're looking for someone to say "Godzilla: King of the Monsters" isn't a fun, summer movie romp and stomp. Lots of stomps actually as Godzilla, Mothra, Rodan, and the three-headed King Ghidorah battle it out for dominance. This sequel does something rarely seen. It bests its predecessor 2014's "Godzilla." These kinds of films succeed in their destruction, and destructive it is. From beginning to end, there are ample amounts of action — and that's what a movie about giant titans walking on buildings like grown-ups stepping on errant Legos left lying around by their kids. The problem is an eco-terrorist gets his hands on a highly classified machine that can actually speak to the Titans and "calm" them if you will. It also has the ability to wake the sleeping ones up. Guess what he wants to do with it? Look, Godzilla is never gonna be Mr. Nice Guy like Lassie trying to help out when humans are in trouble. This lizard is all about dominance, and he can tell when we little worker bee humans aren't out to get him. This critic viewed it on IMAX and that certainly made the destruction all the more tangible. This one is definitely worth the price of a ticket. NOTE: Stay around for most of the credits. There are definite teases about what and WHO is coming next in this universe. View Now

Gayle On Film: 'Wonder Woman 1984'

Wonder Woman 1984 Threats to all of humanity are the lifeblood of plots in action movies. This time, it's Wonder Woman's turn to save the planet's billions of humans. Instead of Nazis and criminal evil geniuses to fight, she's got to let her golden lasso help her deal with your basic con man Max Lord (Pedro Pascal) and Barbara Minerva (Kristen Wiig), a woman who's finally able to get a little attention thanks to some powerful ancient objects. While Wonder Woman is a princess who gets a dream from a wish her heart makes (the return of the dishy Chris Pine), she soon realizes this dream is the thing of nightmares when the deepest, darkest wishes become reality. The hallmarks of a woman's touch are on this fun film, courtesy of director Patty Jenkins. The action sequences are sometimes playful, sometimes intense with a good number of kids Wonder Woman needs to save and the number of prurient body shots of female leads is low. It's not as dark as some other DC comic movie fare, but it's certainly a good addition to the pack. View Now
Gayle On Film: 'The Lion King'

Gayle On Film: 'The Lion King'

The Lion King "The Lion King" is the latest Disney animated hit to be turned into a live action-appearing movie. It appears to be live action, but these are photorealistic computer-generated characters. The 1994 version is in color, has humor, and catchy music. The aesthetic is quite different when you actually make the savannah look realistic and have animals singing their way through a quite beautiful African landscape (as this reviewer saw it in 2D IMAX). It requires the acting talents of the cast to convey the emotion much better than realistic-looking lions that haven't been truly anthropomorphized by animators. But that being said, the reworking of the "Hamlet" tale still has the whimsy and heart to make you tap your toes and smile. Maybe not as much as the first one, but certainly enough to make you enjoy it. "The Lion King" features the voice talents of Donald Glover, Beyoncé, Seth Rogen, Billy Eichner, and James Earl Jones reprising his role as Mufasa. View Now

Gayle On Film: 'Terminator: Dark Fate'

Terminator: Dark Fate First, if you want to know what "Terminator" this would be, this could be considered "Terminator 3" based on where the storyline picks up. We begin with a robot from the future coming to find a woman. Yes, we've been here before multiple times, but this woman isn't Sarah Connor. This woman is Dani Ramos (Natalia Reyes), who's a Mexican citizen working in a car factory that's about to lay some people off due to, you guessed it, automation. But she's got a little protection — OK, a lot of protection — from an enhanced human from the future, the real Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton), and the T-800 (Arnold Schwarzenegger). Let's just say everyone has trust issues, and the latest Terminator has an upgrade that's like going from a flip-phone to the iPhone 11 overnight. Yes, there is a lot of great action. Kudos to Hamilton for showing she can play the tough girl still AND not bothering to hide her wrinkles. But there's also some corny dialogue. Sarah and our favorite Terminator-turned-nice-guy need better stuff to say. Sure, it's a nice popcorn film, but the thrill doesn't stick with you after the credits. View Now

Elephants In Trouble

Elephants In Trouble

This first elephant is in trouble because it's the one causing the trouble. It marched into a village in India and began ripping through the wall of a building. To retaliate, the residents threw firecrackers at the poor creature in an attempt to scare it off. Eventually, it wandered away. Over at Oldonyiro Community Conservancy in Kenya, three helpless elephants were trapped in mud and couldn't get out on their own. Rescuers hauled each elephant out of the mud with a tractor. After some time on solid ground, each elephant was able to recover and stand up on its own. View Now
