Star Trek: Picard S1/E3 Review: ‘The End Is The Beginning’

It takes three episodes, but Jean-Luc Picard finally gets back where he belongs: outer space. He’s a bit older, so you expect him to have a more leisurely pace.

Godzilla

‘Godzilla: King of the Monsters’ Review – Bigger is Better

Five years have passed since Godzilla made a triumphant return to the big screen with Gareth Edwards’s movie, which used the monster sparingly throughout the film before unleashing him in full-force in one of the most satisfying climaxes to a Hollywood action movie in recent years.
