In the end, even after 2 1/2 hours, it felt like a run off the mill popcorn movie. Army of the Dead was well made but it wasn’t shocking, mind blowing or a game changer in the zombie genre.

All in all, Mirage was a well thought out story that had many layers. It had a complex plot but it was simplified in a way that helped the audiences understand what was going on unlike some films that thrive on the confusion of the viewers. There were rootable characters whose motivations were clear from the beginning. As such, it delivered a satisfying conclusion to a story that spanned 25 years to complete .

All in all, Mortal Kombat as a source material, already had a lot going for it, a good story, a cool soundtrack and great character quotes. It was truly amazing how Warner Bros and New Line Cinema could fail so badly given these built in elements. But they managed to do it glowingly. At the end of the day, it was all style and no substance. It was a weak attempt to replicate the success of a beloved video game.

The Way of the House Husband is really funny as it depicts Tatsu’s complete 360 from his life of crime. What’s more, he makes a career out of being a house husband and fully commits to the role. From getting bargains to earning loyalty card points, to doing DIY projects, attending cooking class and even going to the gym with his new buddies — middle aged housewives who have welcomed Tatsu into their fold.

By the movie’s end, audiences will be just as tired, reeling from the aches and pains these two warriors suffered. The ending was nothing short of extraordinary. The best of the Godzilla trilogy for sure and the best Godzilla or Kong film based on my personal opinion. This film gave these two alpha Titans the respect that they deserved and as a result, it is bound to beloved by old and new fans alike. I wouldn’t mind a follow up if it came down to it. You can catch it on HBO Max and select theaters.

If you’re a fan of the DCEU, this is the right movie for you. Feel free to set your expectations high because this film delivered on so many counts. If you’re a movie fan who wants to see a good film and have four hours of your time to spare, this might not be a bad way to go about it. The Snyder Cut is available to stream on HBO Max and HBO Go. Thank you for including us this time around, HBO.
