The Boss Baby

If this doesn’t sound exactly like a bundle of laugh-out-loud joy, that’s because it really isn’t.

Power Rangers

Trashy, goofy, and surprisingly sincere, this superhero fantasy is better than you expect but not as good as it should be.

Godzilla Encounter: Comic-Con 2013

As the Dragon Lady, how could I not pay respects to a fellow kaiju? So we headed over for a private tour of the Godzilla Encounter by Legendary. It's free and it's fun and very well done.

The experience is located off-site from the Convention Center and is open only to Comic-Con pass holders. If your phone doesn't reject the app (my Android phone is too old), then you'll get plenty of hints and during the tour of the streets to Tokyo, you'll get some extras.

Most of the signs are in Japanese, and very well done. You might even step up to order some ramen before disaster strikes. Legendary doesn't have any clips from the upcoming movie, but they do have a good show if you're a fan of Japan's most famous creature. On exhibit are a few artifacts and Godzilla-related stuff. It's like a fan museum with a bit of amusement park experience at the end. Be sure you have an act of Godzilla clause in your insurance policy!

As Godzilla fans, we had a fun 10-minutes. The Godzilla Encounter is located at J Street and 7th Ave. in a brick building that has been damaged (trompe l'oeil) by the creature. You'll need your Comic-Con pass and a free ticket (timed). For more info, visit GodzillaEncounter.com.
