My thoughts on Godzilla x Kong and what I wanted for the Monsterverse

 So, Godzilla x Kong just came out at the end of March, and let me tell you, this is a great time to be a fan of Godzilla. Not only did we get a new entry in the Monsterverse, we also got a new Godzilla film from Japan last Winter. But today I want to focus on Godzilla x Kong.  When Godzilla x Kong came out and the day finally came where I got to see it in theaters, I absolutely loved it. It had monster action and fun and it had human characters that I liked. That's what I expected and that's what I got. Just a decent, fun, non-woke monster movie. I loved it so much that I went out of my way to see it a total of four times, tying it with Jurassic World for the golden crown of most times watched at the theater. But now that I've seen it more than enough times and now that I've slept on it, I want to talk about my real thoughts on the movie and how it compares to the other Monsterverse films.  When the Monsterverse first started, it began with a solo Godzilla movie. Then

Barbie: Layered Masterpiece or Feminist Rhetoric?

 Barbie, Barbie, Barbie. What more can I say? Barbie is probably the most famous doll in the world. Barbie was introduced to the world on March 09, 1959, and has been one of the most popular feminine franchises since then. As time went on, Barbie would get direct to video films, TV shows, and even video games. Why am I talking about Barbie? Well, it just so happens that last July, a live action movie of the Barbie franchise was made, which was released on the same day as Christopher Nolan's Oppenheimer. But maybe I'll save that for another day.  At first glance, this film just looks like a self aware parody meant to sell more Barbie dolls. However, a closer examination reveals a lot more layers than that, and for the most part, isn't good. The nicest way I can describe Barbie is that it's a feminist film, and feminists are in love with it. In fact, some if not all of them love this film more than their boyfriends, and have broken up with them if their boyfrien

Jurassic World Dominion Review

 It's been a very long time since I consistently did reviews on my channel. I wonder what's come out in the last couple years that I haven't reviewed. Wait...did I ever review the new Jurassic World movie that came last year? I didn't? Well that's embarrassing...I should get to it.  So...Jurassic World Dominion. The first thing I want to make clear is that I will be reviewing the theatrical version of the film, since that is the version everyone saw in theaters. If enough people want me to review the extended version, I will save that for a separate video. Jurassic World Dominion was one of if not my most anticipated film of 2022, since it had been four years since Fallen Kingdom came out. When the film finally came out, I went to see it in IMAX over at the Irvine Spectrum and they were having a big promotion. Here's a picture of me with a dinosaur. So cute. The theater was pretty packed too, with long lines to get snacks. It might've been one of the biggest

Let's Talk About Avatar

 Fire. Water. Earth. Air. Oops...wrong Avatar. So, uh, hey. Welcome back to Godly Dragon Reviews, and today we're going to look at James Cameron's Avatar franchise. Back in December 2009, the first Avatar was released in theaters and when I was a teenager I went with my mom and dad to see it. We saw it in 3D and I was just blown away from start to finish. It introduced me to a whole new world of cinema. But, that was back when I wasn't a Christian. I am a Christian now, and last Christmas I had the pleasure of seeing the sequel, subtitled The Way of Water. When I returned to the Avatar franchise without rose colored glasses on, I started to question the underlying themes. Many Christians out there are not too fond of Avatar, while others like myself seem alright with it. So I think it's time we took an objective look at the franchise to see if there are any redemptive qualities that Christians can get out of it.  Avatar is the story of a paraplegic ex-marine named Jake

Dungeons and Dragons: Honor Among Thieves-A Christian Review

 Hey there everyone. Welcome back to Godly Dragon Reviews. I know it's been a very long time since I've done a review, but I appreciate you all for being very patient. I've been on hiatus on video making for a while due to a lot of tough times in life, and I've also been taking a break to produce music, link in the description below. I've made several EPs and also a few albums and my artist name is Den of Dragons. So if you wanna listen to some good Christian music, check out my soundcloud. and I am also on major streaming services like Spotify.  Anyway, today I am going to review the new Dungeons and Dragons movie that came out at the end of March. I saw it in theaters, but now that it's on Paramount+ I think now is a good time to review it. First, some background. This movie is based on the worldwide phenomenon known as Dungeons and Dragons, a fantasy roleplaying game invented back in the 80s during the satanic panic. This game is controversial among Christian

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Review

 Hey there everybody. I know it's been a while since I did a new review. My monsterverse review series has been on hold for a while, but hopefully I'll get back to that soon. For now, I want to review a very special movie to me that came out in theaters not too long ago, and will soon be on Paramount Plus as I am making this video. So as you all might know, I am a big fan of Sonic the Hedgehog. My first video game as a little boy was the original Sonic the Hedgehog for Sega Genesis, and I was hooked on the franchise ever since. In the middle of 2019, trailers came out for a Sonic movie, which got backlash because of the original design for Sonic. In the end though, after fan outcry, the studio decided to redesign the character to make him look like the Sonic we know and love, and when the film came out, it was a success with Sonic fans and casual viewers alike. What I am reviewing today is the sequel to that film. The movie I am reviewing today is Sonic the Hedgehog 2.  First,

Kong Skull Island Review

 Hello everyone. Welcome to part 2 of The Godly Dragon Reviews The Monsterverse. Today I want to talk about one of the most famous monsters in cinema history, King Kong. Now, King Kong is a franchise that I only recently got into. Jurassic Park and Godzilla were my first exposures to the monster movie genre, and it wasn't until February of 2021 that I took the time to watch almost every King Kong movie in anticipation of Godzilla vs Kong later that year. Actually, my first exposure to the King Kong franchise was with Kong: King of the Apes on Netflix. The show didn't get good reviews, but I actually thought it was really cool. I also got to experince the King Kong 360 3-D attraction at Universal Studios in Hollywood. I would say my favorite King Kong movies are the original from 1933, Godzilla vs Kong, the 2005 remake directed by Peter Jackson, and Kong Skull Island, the subject of today's review. There was also a crossover back in 1963 called King Kong vs Godzilla, where t
