"Attack on Titan: Part 2" might be an improvement over its predecessor, but it's better in the same way that "Star Wars: Episode II- Attack of the Clones" is better than "Star Wars: Episode 1- The Phantom Menace", which is a bit of a backhanded compliment.
"Attack on Titan: Part 1" won't likely satisfy anyone, as it's a weak adaptation, a weak standalone film and doesn't excel in the action or horror departments. But it's not unwatchable either and can even be enjoyable with the right crowd.
"Hausu" is a fascinating experience because it's one psychedelic visual following another, some shots being alluring while others are haunting. It's corny, campy and kind of creepy, but you have to accept its avant-garde approach in order to appreciate it.
My original review of "Godzilla, King of the Monsters" was a victim to the purging of my freewebs account. I have now re-written, re-edited and re-posted it. I just watched the movie again, so have my feelings changed at all?
It's still not as good as the first "Shinobi no Mono", but "Shinobi no Mono 4: Siege" is a step up from the previous sequels because it's actually entertaining. You'll be confused if you aren't familiar with the war between Tokugawa and Yukimura, but I did enjoy myself and that is what matters.
“Adventures of Zatoichi” looks and feels like every other Zatoichi film, but I also believe it has more depth than most of its contemporaries. That's not to say this one is deep or the other movies are shallow. But its use of drama is rather unique.
If there is some deep meaning to the film, the director intentionally muddies the waters with his hyperactive editing style and bizarre special effects. Personally, I think he just wanted an excuse to show off lots of surreal and crazy imagery.
