The two human storylines explained things with mixed results. I saw this movie in Dolby where the ass-shaking seats rocked from the epic battles. This is best kaiju movie ever.

Are colored hard-boiled Easter eggs kosher for Passover?Read more “Are Colored Hard-Boiled Easter Eggs Kosher For Passover?”
