Godzilla vs Kong | Average Guy Movie Review

When Kong is removed from Skull Island as part of a major expedition, Godzilla quickly steps in to assert his position as King of the Monsters. What follows is a heavy-weight bout of epic proportions, one that reveals an ancient rivalry between the two species. But with the Apex Cybernetics corporation picking up the tab, is there more to this expedition than meets the eye? It's movies like this that should really be seen on the big screen! Between the breath-taking visuals and epic kaiju fights - all of which is set perfectly to Junkie XL's fantastic score - Adam Wingard's foray into the MonsterVerse certainly lives up to its title. Seeing these two giants - as well as a certain third player - knock seven bells out of each other is... well, monstrous fun. And because the visuals are so crisp, you can appreciate every punch, every radioactive breath and every smashed building. In that respect Godzilla vs Kong is exactly what fans want; a humongous clash of the titans, from

Mortal Kombat | Moustache Trailer Reaction

The Mortal Kombat trailer has arrived, and it promises a movie that's a blood-soaked, R rated fight fest. If you haven't seen the trailer yet or just want to watch it again, you can check it out below. The first thing that struck me when I watched the new redband trailer for the upcoming Mortal Kombat was the intensity of some of the fight scenes. Well actually I was trying to figure out if I had just seen the guy from Deadpool 2 who was diced up by the rotor blades of a helicopter - Shatterstar - which of course I had because Lewis Tan is playing Cole Young, one of the warriors chosen to represent Earth in this inter-dimensional tournament. As directorial debuts go, Simon McQuoid has picked a big one! Especially with the massive fanbase that a franchise like Mortal Kombat enjoys, and the curse that seems to follow every movie adaptation of a video game. There's a fair amount going on in this trailer - most of it punching and stabbing, of course - which hints at the apparen

Moustache Lockdown Streaming Survival Guide Part 17 | News of the World

  When I first heard that Tom Hanks was starring in a movie called 'News of the World', I found myself wondering who Hollywood's nicest actor would be playing in the depiction of a scandal that resulted in a major court case and the shutdown of a national newspaper.

But that's exactly what it is, and it's now on Netflix, so there's no way it wasn't making it into our Moustache Lockdown Streaming Survival Guide.
