A “putzel” is a “little putz” and for Walter Himmelstein (an endearing Jack Carpenter), being known by that nickname does not exactly bode well for an exciting life amongst the go-getters of New York City. But that is quite okay with young Walter — he is a homebody, perfectly content to remain within the familiar confines of his mundane life on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, seeing in his Uncle Sid’s (John Pankow) smoked-fish emporium a comfortable future among the salmon. Until, that is, his married uncle takes up with the vivacious Sally (Melanie Lynskey), throwing Walter’s succession plans into disarray…

It hangs blankly on the turmoils, and grips ever so lightly to achieve power. IT NEEDS TO BE REMADE, the story was kind of wasted in this film, it needs a better vision from directing. As soon as the first murder was done, the movie plummets down. I gave it a higher rating than it should have, or it actually does infer, because people should know this story, yet, it should be told better.

The amount of symbolism and metaphors, though at first hidden, is so stifling it pushes out most, if not all, intrigue the movie has. Sure, the camera-work and visuals do great to help get the point across and it's very clever, but this isn't material you'd show to an average movie-goer. This is something shown to someone who wants to not particularly enjoy the movie, but dissect it for all its meanings and tricks. Still, for what it is, it's solid. Oh, and major points for that ending.

An asteroid crashes into the Earth and lands in the ocean waking Godzilla from his sleep. He returns to the surface to discover he is not the only one awakened by the asteroid. The Earth has unleashed a planet savior known as Mothra that threatens to destroy Godzilla; however, the asteroid has also awaken an evil bat-like creature that threatens to aid Godzilla in the destruction of the planet. Can Mothra thwart Godzilla and the bat creature? "It's too big to be a dinosaur egg." Takao Okawara, director of Godzilla 2000, Bloody Scary Horror, Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla, Yukai, and Godzilla v. Destroyah, delivers Godzilla vs. Mothra. The storyline for this picture is okay and materializes well; however, there are several awkward singing and musical sequences in this film that felt out of place. The action scenes were fun and the destruction sequences were well created. The acting was mediocre and as you would anticipate for the genre. "That flower talked." This picture continues the recent string of science fiction monster movies we have been targeting. This movie was entertaining on some levels and the plot wasn't as bad as I anticipated; however, the singing flower girls frustrated me and over dramatized several scenes in this picture. Overall, this is worth seeing if you are a fan of the genre but isn't a classic monster movie. "We should forget about this crazy guy, you cockroach." Grade: C

It's okay enough, but is noticeably less good, and that's a disappointment. The tie-in with voodoo is decent I suppose, but the film just leaves a lot to be desired. Also, it's maybe a couple of minutes longer than its predecessor, but the terrible pacing makes it feel at least 30 minutes longer. Too bad it drags, because this could have been a real scream (hehe). William Marshall returns as Mamuwalde/Blacula, and onces again gives a good performances (far better than he needs to, really). With his hight and booming deep voice, he makes for a striking and imposing vampire. Pam Grier co-stars in this (much to my delight), and, while her performance is good, ishe's been better. Unfortunately, neither she nor Marshall can fully save this, but they do ensure that the film is still watchable. The original was no masterpiece, but they at least tried to aspire to somehting beyond mere exploitation. This is just lazy. I do still kind of recommend it, but only for the absolutely curious.
