Fans have been dying for a glimpse at the new season of Stranger Things and now, they’ll be busy for the foreseeable future trying to dissect the teaser that Netflix just dropped.

As you, our loyal readers know, The NOC was created to provide input on the pop culture stories and trends we all love, but with a perspective that assess them from the greater lens of representation for people of color; fans like you. Sometimes in my reviews, I’ll assess a movie purely from an entertainment standpoint. But sometimes, a movie will come along that honestly needs to be looked at closer with both lenses. And Godzilla Vs. Kong, of all things, is actually one of those movies. To be frank, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t like this movie. From an entertainment standpoint it’s actually a huge blast! But for a film in a franchise so heavily tied to Japanese roots, and prior to this installment, honored those roots proudly, it honestly gets me a bit angry whenever I think about it. So, with your permission, and because it’s cheaper than therapy, I’d like to use this review to talk about the things I loved about the film from an entertainment standpoint, the things I disliked from an entertainment standpoint, and the things I hated from a cultural standpoint as a fellow Nerd of Color.Continue reading “NOC Review: ‘Godzilla Vs. Kong’ is Giant Fun but Has Giant POC Problems”

I’d like to start the review by posing an analogy: Why do we go to and love John Wick movies? Is it because of the story or character? Hell no! We go because we want to see Keanu capping people left and right with well-choreographed action sequences of hardcore violence and badassery. And when we get that, we appreciate and shower praise on a film like that because our expectations are met (89% on RT). The filmmakers know consciously what kind of movie we want, and that’s what they give us.
Therefore, if we are going to shower praise over John Wick for delivering what we expect and what it promises, we must do the same for Godzilla: King of the Monsters. For me, this is a perfect summer blockbuster through and through, and the first time an American-made, big-budget Godzilla movie genuinely felt like a real Godzilla movie! In other words, this movie delivers what it promises — on what it’s supposed to be — and more!
When the world needs the King of the Monsters, the King of the Monsters needs his entourage!
This week, the cast of Godzilla: King of the Monsters came out in full force to discuss the next epic installment of Warner Bros. and Legendary’s Monster-Verse franchise with members of the press, and The Nerds of Color were there to bear witness! Present at the event were stars Millie Bobby Brown, O’Shea Jackson, Thomas Middleditch, Kyle Chandler, Bradley Whitford, Ken Watanabe, and director and co-writer Michael Dougherty. The ensemble got together, to discuss monsters, fandom, and the fun and challenges of putting together the $200 million action-monster spectacle.
“So… About last night…” Brown jokingly began to laughs within the crowd.
Aw snap! It’s going down everyone! On May 31, Godzilla returns, and he’s taking on a whole lot of kaiju!
Warner Bros. just released the final trailer for the Michael Doherty (Trick r’ Treat) helmed sequel to 2014’s Godzilla, and man, by the looks of it, it’s going to be a hell of a monstrous summer!
I think we can all agree that blue beams in the sky are a bit played out nowadays for sci-fi and action genre films.
BUT — When that blue beam in the sky is FREAKING ATOMIC BREATH, I’m going to get hyped! And you should too!
This morning, Netflix dropped a new trailer for Stranger Things, and of course the internet lost its mind.
