Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019) – Blu-Ray Review

Kaijus are rampaging across home theaters this week as Warner Brothers’ Godzilla: King of the Monsters debuts on blu-ray and DVD. Despite being packed with an all-star cast including Kyle Chandler, Vera Farmiga, Millie Bobby Brown, Ken Watanabe, Bradley Whitford, Ziyi Zhang, Aisha Hinds, and Charles Dance, all you want to see is the legendary…

Cloverfield (2008) – Matt Reeves
