JustWatch has you covered

Thanks. I always forget this service exists until I need something, and then I come here and get reminded of it.

I have bookmarked it for future needs.

What the what?

“It will be complete carnage. We are heavily influenced by 'Freddy Vs Jason' and 'The Avengers,'" said 'Winnie the Pooh Blood and Honey' producer of his new planned 'Poohniverse'

...well now I need to see Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey.

I’m there because Poohniverse is the best word ever created.

You really, really don’t.

Not sure if this is the right thread or not, but I finally saw Dune Part 2. I thought it was a genuinely great movie, much better than part 1 (which was good!). It just worked on basically every level.

It was Godzilla x Kong in full IMAX for my self and 9yo Godzilla obsessed mini BBK. The American arm of the franchise is hitting the same heights of nonsensical dumbness last seen in late era Showa films like Godzilla vs Gigan. I had some fun with it and 9 YO gave it two big thumbs up however it really does suffer from being in such close proximity to the masterpiece that is Godzilla Minus One.

I missed G-1 and it still hasn't appeared on streaming, so I have no comparison, but I really enjoyed GxK (I went on my own like a saddo - the family were very much not interested). I felt it was a more streamlined story than GvK and KOTM and I liked how they let Kong just go off and do stuff, react and emote without any humans commenting on it. The monster fights seemed maybe a step down from before to me, but I thought it all worked. I'm 100% behind Trapper and Bernie getting together.

Seeing movies in the theater alone === Joy. No saddo required.

Also, probably dumb question, but is there any need to have seen Godzilla vs. Kong? I can’t bring myself to watch that on account of

Spoiler:

I can’t bear to see Kong lose even if it’s to Godzilla and even if they end up beating Mechagodzilla together. I’ll see it eventually but oof there’s something about that that causes me anxiety.

The story is such hilarious nonsense that you are fine. Some of the characters come from the previous film but I don’t think it will impact.

Plot spoilers for Godzilla vs Kong:

I mean, that's kind of what happens if that's critical for you. My instinct is that it's not going to be too traumatic for you - it isn't the kind of film that glories in the pain, and godzilla is in a higher weight class than Kong, who is more of a scrappy McClane type - and it's pretty cartoony as bbk said.

Thanks!

Honestly it’s worth seeing. The intro credits alone has this graphic of brackets as if the Monsterverse has been holding a tournament. lol.

Even worse, speculation is that Minus One had to leave theaters in the middle of a run to clear the road for Godzilla x Kong. And we may not see a VOD release for a while for the same reason. It’s apparently in the contract with Legendary. So arguably the best Godzilla movie in decades, a literal masterpiece, has to sit on the shelf and wait for this.
