Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Finally, a good anime movie?

No, this is a bad anime movie about Godzilla. takes almost everything to a new height.

A mediocre end to a trilogy

I'm glad this one was the shortest of the three. There wasn't much story left to tell. And, this was supposed to come out last November but it just got released this month, so I wonder what happened with that. But back to my point, you gotta sit through, like, 40 minutes of bleh, then the good stuff kicks in. It's entertaining, and what they did with Ghidorah (sp?) was interesting.
