I'm not one hundred percent sure that this is the first time for this series that I've done back-to-back death scenes from the same movie, but I couldn't help myself -- I'm still buried hard mentally inside the MonsterVerse movies and I really wanted to giggle about this moment from Kong: Skull Island today. An even funnier death than the one I shared two weeks back -- I hope that actor Shea Whigham dines out on this death-scene often, because it's a classic. If I was an actor I'd want all the death-scenes -- fuck being a Final Girl. Give me a good death! Even better give me a violently destroyed dummy replica of myself to keep as a souvenir! That's reason enough to become an actor. (Although I wouldn't want to have to sit under the plaster mask, god forbid.)

Anyway have we all seen Godzilla vs Kong by now? You wouldn't have seen it when I did that post two weeks back but by now I assume you have -- it had great numbers in theaters and on HBO Max and every damn person had an opinion. So what's yours? I reviewed it over at Pajiba if you missed it; my opinion was high. So high that I've gone back and started watching (or in some cases re-watching) all of the 1980s-90s Godzilla movies, called the "Heisei Era" of films, which have been a blast. There's even a Twitter thread for that...
