Godzilla Resurgence (Shin Godzilla) (2016) (film review by Frank Ochieng)

One might nostalgically recall the days back when the cheesy yet infectious Japanese monster movies were such a magnificent draw during those hazy Saturday afternoons showcasing the double creature feature matinees that aired weekly on US television.
