Here’s the latest episode of The Obsessive Viewer Podcast. We decided to do an extended potpourri episode since we haven’t done a proper potpourri in what seems like a while. We recorded for 2 hours but I got it edited down to an hour and a half. Don’t worry, though, I’ve saved all the stuff for a later podcast so you’ll hear it eventually. And it’s good, too!
- Captain America: The Winter Soldier, 2014 - ★★★★½ April 18, 2021Watched on Saturday April 17, 2021.
- Godzilla vs. Kong, 2021 - ★★★ April 7, 2021The visual effects and destruction/battle sequences were really fantastic and looked incredible.

While I still respect some of the visuals and jumps into surreal visions, as an overall movie, it just didn't really hold up that well.I love the concept (and dig the novella as well), but the movie takes this confused "lost in supern […]
- Kong: Skull Island, 2017 - ★★★½ April 5, 2021Really liked the time period, the location, and just the overall scale of Kong. All of that was really eye popping. Pretty solid all around.
- Godzilla, 2014 - ★★★ April 4, 2021First time seeing it since it was in theaters. I appreciate it a bit more this time. It's jaw droppingly gorgeous at times and the monster fighting it really cool. Surprisingly, in a movie with so much darkness, it doesn't feel like it's using dim lighting to skimp on visual effects. Instead, it uses it to conceal and put some cool lighting ef […]
