I try to never go into a movie with any kind of expectations. I just let the chips fall where they may. That being said, my jaw was on the ground for pretty much the entirety of Attack the Block.
Technically, Teenagers from Outer Space is a really bad movie. There are things about this movie that are laughably bad. Despite all of that this is one of my favorite movies. It has a certain charm to it that I just can’t deny. It will never find itself on any credible “best of” list, but it’s on mine!

Gojira is a Japanese science fiction movie produced and released by Toho in 1954. Gojira is probably best known to the world by its English title, Godzilla. Just hearing the word “Godzilla” invokes a wide array of emotions amongst the population.
