Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with a look a the heavily anticipated “Godzilla vs. Kong” the fourth installment in the “Monsterverse” series of movies that began in 2014 with “Godzilla.” This is the culmination of seven years of setup and heavy world-building that satisfies on nearly every level for anyone who’s been a fan of Godzilla or Kong in almost every single one of their cinematic iterations. (Except for that Matthew Broderick abomination in 1998. . .let’s just pretend that doesn’t exist, shall we?)Continue reading
Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with a look at a new spy thriller based on a true story. It’s called “The Courier” and stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Greville Wynne, a British salesman during the 1960s who is recruited by both MI6 and the CIA to help an asset in Russia smuggle information to prevent nuclear war between Russia and the United States. Unfortunately Wynne is an amateur in the world of spycraft and that inexperience sets in motion a series of events that puts his life in danger.Continue reading
Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog with some Superman from the Golden Age Of Radio in honor of the release of “Zack Snyder’s Justice League.” A simpler Superman from a simpler age. I might throw in a little Batman in there for good measure. Enjoy the old radio shows and enjoy the massively entertaining Snyder Cut of “Justice League.” Feel free to comment on my Facebook page or on this site. So Sayeth The Kendog!
These Are The First Four Episodes In The Superman Serial “Batman’s Great Mystery” I’ll have more later!
Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog Here with a look at “Zack Snyder’s Justice League,” the four hour magnum opus that gives Snyder the opportunity to tell the epic tale of DC’s greatest heroes and their eventual team up to defeat the evil minions of DC’s big bads: Darkseid and his lieutenant Steppenwolf (Not the 70’s rock band) The story behind this cut of the movie is as interesting as the movie itself. Snyder had to abandon the original film due to a tragedy in his family and Warner Bros. brought in Joss Whedon of “The Avengers” fame to finish things up. Whedon however reshot the majority of the movie which made the 2017 release a muddled, tonal mess. There was some good in that film but it was popular neither with the fans or the critics. Then the power of the internet came to for as Snyder’s fans came out in support of his unseen and unfinished cut. Pressure was so great that Warner Bros. not only authorized Snyder to finish his cut, but gave him millions to shoot new scenes. The result is now on HBO Max for your streaming pleasure.Continue reading
Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog with a look at Hulu’s latest original movie, an action film from Sacramento’s own Joe Carnahan. It’s called “Boss Level” and it’s a violent iteration of the classic Bill Murray comedy “Groundhog Day.” It’s not as good as “Groundhog Day” mind you, but it’s a fairly entertaining action flick with a solid hook, entertaining direction, and some good performances from some game actors, particularly from lead Frank Grillo.Continue reading
