Snowpiercer has a lot going for it in the orignality department, though its ending feels much too abrupt and the moments of campiness feel all the more out of place in an otherwise serious film. Worth a rental on a Friday night but you will never watch it again.
Fans will (probably) love it, but for those of us not on board the X-Men train, what we're given is a generic action film with a contrived plot that is undoubtedly entertaining but also pretty forgettable.
Despite some corny dialogue and flimsy writing, Godzilla is a triumphant return for the King of Monsters, with a final act that may be the greatest visual spectacle ever put on screen and is worth the price of admission alone..ten times over. Yes, his atomic breath is both blue and glorious.
It still suffers from redundancy, "superhero movies 101" cliches, a ton of lazy exposition and a main villain even more ridiculous than the last, but The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is a vast improvement over its predecessor thanks mostly to the excellent dynamic between Peter and Gwen and Dane DeHaan's perfectly unhinged performance. Bonus star for an ending that, unlike the Avengers movies, actually has some balls.
