Godzilla Minus One movie poster

I saw Godzilla Minus One tonight with my son. I was not quite sure what to expect. I appreciated the meaningful story of this movie. I remember watching Japanese monster movies at summer matinees or after school. There was a local station that would have monster weeks and show several of these films over a week or two.

I thought this film was very well done. It’s not the cheesy type of movie I remember from my childhood. And yet music in the movie reminded me of those movies. I am unsure if it was the same theme or something similar.

I didn’t come in with a lot of expectations but came away thinking it was probably one of the better movies I saw in the theater this year. Teenage Mutant Turtles was similar in that I didn’t have high expectations but thought it was very well done.
