The Weekly Stuff #163 – Reviewing Gears of War 4 & Shin Godzilla

Episode Summary

We review Shin Godzilla, the first Toho-produced Godzilla film in twelve years, and one of the best films of 2016, along with thoughts on Gears of War 4, the beta for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, and much more!

Episode Notes

Shin Godzilla is the first Toho-produced Godzilla film in twelve years, and it’s been one of our most anticipated films of 2016. Now it’s finally here, and we have lots of thoughts on what is undoubtedly one of the most powerful and unique films we’ve seen this or any other year. We review the film in full spoiler terms in the back half of the show, and before that, Jonathan talks more about the surprisingly delightful Paper Mario: Color Splash and the terrific second-season premiere of the CW’s Supergirl, while Sean continues his journey through the Japanese release of Persona 5 and shares thoughts on the pre-release beta of Dragon Ball: Xenoverse. And after both of us discuss this weekend’s Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare beta, Jonathan reviews the campaign of Gears of War 4, which is…okay. We elaborate from there. But the main attraction is definitely Shin Godzilla, and if you have a chance to see this film in theatres, you absolutely should.
