    If someone said “Hey applewood, I’ve never seen a Kaiju film before, do you think I should start with the Rebirth of Mothra Trilogy?” all I could probably muster to say is “Please don’t.”

See, you say that...But then I read your review, and it sounds like something I need to watch!

It's a pretty rough movie, both for a kaiju film and a children's movie. I don't want to poo poo all over it because I'm trying to go the CinemaWins route and talk about what makes these movies enjoyable for me, but even I have to admit that this movie has more going against it than for it. Which is part of the reason I wrote this review three times over, I had to dig deep and find my positive voice. It's definitely one of those movies that's best watch if you're either a completionist or are the type to enjoy the good even in bad films. :)
