The geeks review the Elton John musical biopic Rocketman and then debate who should be on the Mount Rushmore of solo musical talent!
I am a very forgiving movie grader. I even enjoy most movies people consider bad because I can find something fun in them. But Godzilla: King of the Monsters is beyond bad–it’s the kind of movie that makes me angry. This is an easy win. Get giant monsters together. Have them fight. That’s it. And yet, the latest Godzilla movie manages to spoil just about everything. Full details after the spoiler break if you actually care. You should not care.
