    I'll have to catch those two Godzillas; I actually think I might have them on one of my external HD's.

    Skull island I saw, which was cool. Kong I have seen the movies all the way back, not so much with Godzilla.

    I think the Godzilla movies are pretty good-especially King of the Monsters. It really brings back that "big monster movie" feel IMO. Not perfect, but hits a lot of the right notes.

    That is because you are wise and insightful and possessed of discerning taste.

    Rogue Squadron better feature eight X-Wings taking on the Zillo Beast.

    I want a movie where the Zillo Beast climbs the Death Star, and does battle with a fleet of Star Destroyers.

    I can actually visualise this. Escaping out of a landing bay and stomping around the outside surface of the Death Star. Climbing up a Turbo Laser tower, and swatting at TIEs zipping by.

    After all, SW films always did include some sort of brief monster sequence (with the exception of one or two). Fits perfectly!

    Good change.

    The recovery is continuing for the box office even as vast swaths of theaters are still closed (or at lower capacity), and many people are still hesitant to go to movies. There is little doubt that it will be booming again by mid-2023 provided there are no catastrophic turns for the worse in the pandemic situation.

    “I think the worst is over,” Mooky Greidinger, chief executive officer of No. 2 global theater chain Cineworld Group Plc, said in an interview. “The question that we have now is how everything will fall into place and be adjusted for the new era following Covid.”

    Greidinger doesn’t expect theater revenue to return to pre-Covid levels until at least later in 2021 or 2022, but he said strong interest in the few new movies that have come out suggests there could be a boom in moviegoing as the worst of the pandemic passes.
