BLU-RAY REVIEW & GIVEAWAY — “Godzilla: King of the Monsters”
In 1977, the song “Godzilla” by classic rock band Blue Öyster Cult warned: “History shows again and again how nature points out the folly of man.” The lyric comes full circle in director Michael Dougherty’s (“Krampus,” “Trick ‘r Treat”) epic monster melee, Godzilla: King of the Monsters now available on 4K UHD Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD Special Edition, and Digital. Read our (one-sided) review of the film here.
Starring Kyle Chandler (“The Wolf of Wall Street,” TV’s “Friday Night Lights”), Oscar nominee Vera Farmiga (“The Conjuring” films, TV’s “Bates Motel”) and Millie Bobby Brown (TV’s “Stranger Things”) in her feature film debut, the film follows the heroic efforts of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch as its members face off against a battery of god-sized monsters.
A follow-up to 2014’s Godzilla starring Bryan Cranston and set in the same cinematic universe as 2017’s Kong: Skull Island, the film matches the mighty Godzilla against his most popular rivals including Mothra, Rodan and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed Ghidorah. As these ancient super-species—thought to be mere myths—rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity’s very existence hanging in the balance.
Godzilla: King of the Monsters welcomes the return of Ken Watanabe and Sally Hawkins as Monarch scientist from the first film. Joining them are beloved character actors and scene-stealers such as Bradley Whitford, Charles Dance, Thomas Middleditch, Aisha Hinds, O’Shea Jackson Jr., David Strathairn, and Zhang Ziyi.
