Rotting swamps, psychological terror, ghoulish murders … things are not looking very good in the DVD releases in a week marked by the launch of “True Detective” (Nic Pizzolatto, Cary Joji Fukunaga, 2014), an HBO series applauded and praised by both public and critics. On the other hand, if your aim is senseless destruction, it is possible that “Godzilla” (Gareth Edwards, 2014) satiates your voracious appetite.

SynopsisShining example of Hollywood’s expertise in selling a mediocre movie through great trailers. Gareth Edwars’ “Godzilla” is anything but Godzilla and not even his spectacular cast saves it from burning. Of course, the more than 500 million dollars amassed at the box office have been reason more than enough for the sequel to be on its way.
