I have to start with a little bit of a confession, while I have watched the two Godzilla movies preceding this one, neither of them really stuck with me. They were fun, and I can remember some of the events, but when I left it didn’t really stick with me. Skull Island, on the other land, had the visuals and soundtrack that really stuck it in my mind. So going into this I tried to keep it as neutral as possible, so we will see.
Unlike the raving DC fan base, I did not hate Joss Whedon’s version. I did find it forgettable, but I did not hate it. I mean I literally forgot that I had seen it. I did not hate it though. After seeing Zack Snyder’s take I have completely different point of view. Since the first was so forgettable, I decided to watch the first version before watching the new version. I thought it fair to compare them and see if one can measure up to the other.
I remember watching Coming to America when it first came out back in 1988, and I’ve seen it several times since then. It’s one of those Semmi cult classic movies that I’ll find a way to quote from on occasion, or reference in some manner. If you caught that and understood the reference, we can be friends….or we’re the same type of sad and eyeroll worthy movie geeks. When I heard they were making a sequel I was more than a little worried about how it would come across, but I knew I was going to watch it regardless. It has been a few years since I’d seen the original, and before I watched Coming 2 America I wanted to re-watch Coming to America, so I decided to view them back to back. After having done so, it is my firm belief that this is the best way possible to appreciate the sequel, especially given the state of the way people act towards one another these days.
I’ve found that writing a review for Underwater has been a bit of a challenge. By no means is it a bad film, but it’s not an outstanding film either. The description of “jack of all trades, but master of none” definitely applies with this movie. It’s a science fiction disaster and horror film at both ends of it with the enduring tone of a survival movie throughout. This is one of those films that we’ve all seen before, just not rolled into one. Looking at some other reviews online, you’ll see phrases repeated comparing it to “Alien” and “The Abyss”, and it certainly has those aspects to it.
I was looking at the casting calls the other day, like I do most days. I am currently not in the locations I was looking around in but am going to be there as soon as travel is better. Anyways I got a surprise on one of the casting sites.
So if you are a metal musician you get to make movies, right? Well, enter Glen Danzig’s foray into the celluloid world of horror. Here, the verdict is still out, I guess we will have to see more.
