Looks pretty cool. Of course it will never live up to the original with Matthew Broderick.

If I'm doing a HALO to surprise an enemy the very first thing I'd do is strap a flare to my left boot leaving a trail of smoke to exactly where I touched down.  It's only logical.

The first actor to wear the Godzilla suit in the 50's had been at the Tokyo premiere of the first Americanized Godzilla movie. "That's not Gojira. That Giant Iguana!" was what he said.

And, didn't Hollywood learn it's brutal lesson from the way their first Americanized Godzilla movie bombed and bombed HARD?

Goddammit, they Just. Don't. F♥cking. Get it.  Do they?

This is clearly going to be yet another Man versus Disaster/Monster movie. It's humanity fighting against Godzilla and they're treating Godzilla as a natural disaster yet again.

But the appeal of Godzilla movies is not "giant monster destroys city and is repelled by clever humans" -- It was NEVER that. It was "Godzilla gets in a fight with another giant monster, and together they destroy the city until one is defeated and the other leaves town."

The appeal of Godzilla is the kaiju battles, not the goddamn military shooting shiat at a giant monster while some subplot with characters we're supposed to love plods onward showing how devastated they are by the destruction until one of them comes up with a Hail Mary plan that drives the monster away/destroys the monster.

Yes, the first Godzilla was like that... In 1954 when Godzilla was analogous to the atomic threat. And then they went on and made his movies interestingby having Godzilla fight other kaiju. And NONE OF US really waxes nostalgic about 1954 Godzilla. We remember the ones where he's fighting other kaiju, not the one where he's just  crushing the city and being repelled by humans.

I had such high hopes for this movie, but it looks like it's basically going to be Cloverfield, Godzilla 1954, Godzilla 1998, and every other disaster film in the past 50 years.

Look, producers: It's EASY.  Godzilla movies are 1/2 disaster movie, and 1/2 pro wrestling with giant fricking monsters. That's IT. You can have your disaster movie crap, but you MUST include the over-the-top fighting. You MUST include another monster, and the ENTIRE last reel of the film should be spent on the two monsters fighting.

That's it. That's goddamned ALL there is to it, and you had to artsy-fartsy f♥ck it all up and change the f♥cking formula. Goddamn, this is disappointing-looking.

Whenever we make a Hollywood version of a foreign film, there's this assumption that Americans won't be interested in watching non-Americans (or at least non-westerners) in the same roles.

See: Let The Right One In/Let Me In, Godzilla 1998, The Girl Who..., et. al.

I don't think they were that worried about Godzilla running and hunting them down after they landed. They would probably hear him coming. The flares were more about being able to see each other as they fell through those dense clouds (which appeared to be at least somewhat a smoke cloud) so they don't get tangled up in each others chutes and can stay together.

It's rumored there may be several.  From what I've read human scientists screw around with stuff, create giant monsters that go on a rampage and along come Gojira to save the day.  As long as they don't go the Bay route and have the humans save the day and instead let our favorite giant monster toss the baddies through skyscrapers we're good as far as I'm concerned.

If this is true, then I retract my rant.

Unless they fark it all up by making the monsters totally lame.

A big-budget Godzilla movie should be like farking Wrestlemania III  for Kaiju.

I own it, and yes, it's pretty cool... But those monsters were kinda blah compared to big G. The robots were awesome, but the kaiju were dumb-looking and didn't get much screen-time.

Also, they spent way too much time on the giant robot fan-service, and not enough time on the kaiju fan service. Despite the cross-over, they are two different crowds, and I'm more of a kaiju fan than a giant robot fan.

I really don't want to spend an hour learning about the farking pilots. Kaiju don't have pilots; They just kick ass without all the angsty bullshiat. They show up on opposite shores, make obscene gestures at each other, and then brawl while the human just run screaming or ineffectively point masers at them.

I like that. It's fun.

Then I'm going to blame the initial bad reaction I'm having on the dipshiats who cut together the teaser trailer. I get that they want to save the good stuff for later, but there's no harm in letting us know it's not just GINO with better CGI.

Actually its YOU who doesn't farking get it.
Yes... the Kaiju battles are a fun romp...but Godzilla films have always had a moral underpinning and every single one has been about environmentalism. Every single one. While not the obvious to the casual English speaking observer watching them dubbed over...but its there.

and "Yes, the first Godzilla was like that... In 1954 when Godzilla was analogous to the atomic threat. And then they went on and made his movies interestingby having Godzilla fight other kaiju "

Really?  The original movie was discussing Atomic bombs...but it was really a direct allegory to the mass firebombing we inflicted on Japan during the waining days of WWII. At the time it was made by and for an audience who lived through those horrors. It featured special effects that at the time were state of the art, or horrifying to the movie goer of the day.
"And NONE OF US really waxes nostalgic about 1954 Godzilla. We remember the ones where he's fighting other kaiju, not the one where he's  just  crushing the city and being repelled by humans"


None of us?  speak for yourself tard.  the original 1954 Gojira is a classic master piece of mid-century SciFi Horror cinema. Without which Kaiju as a medium would not exist. Sure eventually the Toho films became more and more about camp for a while.  And I'm sorry your limited imagination can't handle any attempt at depth.  Clearly we know what it is that you enjoy about Kaiju films and TV...but you speak from ignorance, and do NOT speak for the rest of "US", many people, like myself, enjoy more than just fan-service.

What it's a giant moth like that moth from Phantoms? That thing was frightening and lots of people think tiny, normal moths are icky.

Yeah, I wasn't scared of the giant space lizard-gorilla thing either. Even when it appeared as it's robot form for every Michael Bay transformer, or as the monsters in Star Trek, or Super 8. I'm just amazed Hollywood is basically reusing the cloverfield monster design over and over and over lately.

Exactly. The filmmakers have said that they are basing it on the 1954 original rather than the later ones with the fights. There will be other monsters that Godzilla fights in this one though, but the tone will be far more like the somber original.

Everyone from Gareth Edwards to the cast are apparently big fans who want to do everything short of giving it the Final Wars send-off to right the wrongs done to the Godzilla universe by that 1998 abortion.


Then I'm going to blame the initial bad reaction I'm having on the dipshiats who cut together the teaser trailer. I get that they want to save the good stuff for later, but there's no harm in letting us know it's not just GINO with better CGI.


Have you seen the Comic-Con teaser? Its fairly easy to find. I think it was better than this one. It's incredibly somber and chilling with footage of the aftermath (looks like the aftermath of an atomic bomb) with a voiceover by J. Robert Oppenheimer giving his famous quote.

That trailer proved to me that this won't be like the 1998 one at all.

Richard C Stanford: DeltaPunch: ZeroCorpse: Goddammit, they Just. Don't. F♥cking. Get it.  Do they?

This is clearly going to be yet another Man versus Disaster/Monster movie. It's humanity fighting against Godzilla and they're treating Godzilla as a natural disaster yet again.

But the appeal of Godzilla movies is not "giant monster destroys city and is repelled by clever humans" -- It was NEVER that. It was "Godzilla gets in a fight with another giant monster, and together they destroy the city until one is defeated and the other leaves town."

The appeal of Godzilla is the kaiju battles, not the goddamn military shooting shiat at a giant monster while some subplot with characters we're supposed to love plods onward showing how devastated they are by the destruction until one of them comes up with a Hail Mary plan that drives the monster away/destroys the monster.

Yes, the first Godzilla was like that... In 1954 when Godzilla was analogous to the atomic threat. And then they went on and made his movies interestingby having Godzilla fight other kaiju. And NONE OF US really waxes nostalgic about 1954 Godzilla. We remember the ones where he's fighting other kaiju, not the one where he's just  crushing the city and being repelled by humans.

I had such high hopes for this movie, but it looks like it's basically going to be Cloverfield, Godzilla 1954, Godzilla 1998, and every other disaster film in the past 50 years.

Look, producers: It's EASY.  Godzilla movies are 1/2 disaster movie, and 1/2 pro wrestling with giant fricking monsters. That's IT. You can have your disaster movie crap, but you MUST include the over-the-top fighting. You MUST include another monster, and the ENTIRE last reel of the film should be spent on the two monsters fighting.

Just a note for the curious.  The Japanese version Gojira is vastly superior in story to the Americanized version that you may have seen starring Raymond Burr
 
2013-12-10 06:32:16 PM  

ZeroCorpse: Old_Chief_Scott: I know I was just a little kid when the originals ran in the theater, but weren't there a metric assload more Japanese people before?

Whenever we make a Hollywood version of a foreign film, there's this assumption that Americans won't be interested in watching non-Americans (or at least non-westerners) in the same roles.

See: Let The Right One In/Let Me In, Godzilla 1998, The Girl Who..., et. al.


The best example is TransWorld Releasing insisted on editing in scenes starring Raymond Burr into the American release of Godzilla because they thought American audiences would relate to him. They also expunged any references to suffering during the war, because Americans should not be shown in a bad light.

Two things in this thread:

It's been stated before, but Godzilla will appear alongside other creatures.  It's pretty clear that one of them comes from underground (the subway bashing, the tunnel left behind), so perhaps Anguirus is a possibility.

Those who are complaining about the plot of Pacific Rim are slightly misguided.  The plot was acceptable, but, by God, Hunnam can't act.

That's what I saw as well. Beats new york..again. But that's the same place as in Pacific Rim, isn't it? I really hope they tie it in somehow.

There is another giant monster.  They're just not showing it yet.  As long it's not a gigantic moth we're gold.

What it's a giant moth like that moth from Phantoms? That thing was frightening and lots of people think tiny, normal moths are icky.

Can't wait to see the human aspect of a Godzilla attack. You know, like in Transformers. The real story lies in the human drama, their hardships, emotions....their discussions.


Maybe several main characters that we can follow throughout the movie.

We can discover more about them, their likes, dislikes, passions, their dreams for the future and their thoughts on the present.
Perhaps even some flashbacks to when the 10-15 main characters were younger so we can understand them better.

Don't want to see a bunch of CGI monsters fighting. CGI monsters should get about 15 minutes of screen time spread out the whole movie. Don't need that stuff chewing up time meant for story.

ZeroCorpse: Flappyhead: Blathering Idjut: ZeroCorpse: I had such high hopes for this movie, but it looks like it's basically going to be Cloverfield, Godzilla 1954, Godzilla 1998, and every other disaster film in the past 50 years.

There is another giant monster.  They're just not showing it yet.  As long it's not a gigantic moth we're gold.

It's rumored there may be several.  From what I've read human scientists screw around with stuff, create giant monsters that go on a rampage and along come Gojira to save the day.  As long as they don't go the Bay route and have the humans save the day and instead let our favorite giant monster toss the baddies through skyscrapers we're good as far as I'm concerned.

If this is true, then I retract my rant.

Unless they fark it all up by making the monsters totally lame.

A big-budget Godzilla movie should be like farking Wrestlemania III  for Kaiju.


Word; If that's the case then...that might just interest me.  Godzilla v. other monsters and kicking their ass...I'm in.

This. Pacific Rim was our giant monster movie - the movie '98 Godzilla, King Kong, and Cloverfield to be. PR is probably one of my 10 favorite movies of all time.

ZeroCorpse: Goddammit, they Just. Don't. F♥cking. Get it.  Do they?

This is clearly going to be yet another Man versus Disaster/Monster movie. It's humanity fighting against Godzilla and they're treating Godzilla as a natural disaster yet again.

But the appeal of Godzilla movies is not "giant monster destroys city and is repelled by clever humans" -- It was NEVER that. It was "Godzilla gets in a fight with another giant monster, and together they destroy the city until one is defeated and the other leaves town."

The appeal of Godzilla is the kaiju battles, not the goddamn military shooting shiat at a giant monster while some subplot with characters we're supposed to love plods onward showing how devastated they are by the destruction until one of them comes up with a Hail Mary plan that drives the monster away/destroys the monster.

Yes, the first Godzilla was like that... In 1954 when Godzilla was analogous to the atomic threat. And then they went on and made his movies interestingby having Godzilla fight other kaiju. And NONE OF US really waxes nostalgic about 1954 Godzilla. We remember the ones where he's fighting other kaiju, not the one where he's just  crushing the city and being repelled by humans.

I had such high hopes for this movie, but it looks like it's basically going to be Cloverfield, Godzilla 1954, Godzilla 1998, and every other disaster film in the past 50 years.

Look, producers: It's EASY.  Godzilla movies are 1/2 disaster movie, and 1/2 pro wrestling with giant fricking monsters. That's IT. You can have your disaster movie crap, but you MUST include the over-the-top fighting. You MUST include another monster, and the ENTIRE last reel of the film should be spent on the two monsters fighting.

Build-up
Arrival
Fight
End

That's it. That's goddamned ALL there is to it, and you had to artsy-fartsy f♥ck it all up and change the f♥cking formula. Goddamn, this is disappointing-looking.


Godzilla is about a psychologically shattered nation trying to come to terms with the fact that something horrifying can come out of nowhere and blast you straight to hell before you can even react.

I really wanted a CGI version of a guy in a rubber suit for that one.

I just read the Wiki entry for it and I didn't see any evidence of that. But I did find THIS for the Pacific Rim fans:

At WonderCon 2013, Guillermo del Toro expressed enthusiasm for a potential crossover between Godzilla and del Toro's Pacific Rim-another Legendary Pictures kaiju film-but stressed that no such plans were in place.
 
2013-12-11 03:28:29 AM  

ClintonKun: Have you seen the Comic-Con teaser? Its fairly easy to find. I think it was better than this one. It's incredibly somber and chilling with footage of the aftermath (looks like the aftermath of an atomic bomb) with a voiceover by J. Robert Oppenheimer giving his famous quote.

Um, both Godzilla v. King Kong and any movie with Mecha-Godzilla were closer to the second one than the first, and the original Godzilla was  exactly like the second one.

And that's just off the top of my head.  Generally, the kaiju fight was the result of a clever hail-mary plan enacted by devastated characters with a subplot that took up half the movie.  Did you never watch any of the godzilla movies?

floor: ZeroCorpse: Old_Chief_Scott: I know I was just a little kid when the originals ran in the theater, but weren't there a metric assload more Japanese people before?

Whenever we make a Hollywood version of a foreign film, there's this assumption that Americans won't be interested in watching non-Americans (or at least non-westerners) in the same roles.

See: Let The Right One In/Let Me In, Godzilla 1998, The Girl Who..., et. al.

The best example is TransWorld Releasing insisted on editing in scenes starring Raymond Burr into the American release of Godzilla because they thought American audiences would relate to him. They also expunged any references to suffering during the war, because Americans should not be shown in a bad light.

Citation for fun

I have seen both GOJIRA and GODZILLA KING OF MONSTERS, and I have to say that the addition of the
Burr scenes was done pretty well.  They don't make the movie better, certainly, but unlike some of the
later US tinkering it doesn't detract from the film.  It gives the movie a different vibe, though.

And there's not a damn thing anyone can do about it. The Japanese in the Godzilla movies have to be the most technologically advanced country on the planet, and they STILL can't stop Godzilla when he decides it's time to tear Tokyo down to the sub-basement level again. I always saw the Godzilla movies as an analogy to humanity in the face of natural disasters; you can't stop them, you can't even really prepare for them, all you can do is try and survive and then rebuild once they're gone. Japan has to deal with tidal waves, earthquakes, typhoons and volcanoes as well as manmade firestorms and nuclear obliteration; it's no wonder they created a genre of "living natural force destroys us" movies.

I don't think they were that worried about Godzilla running and hunting them down after they landed. They would probably hear him coming. The flares were more about being able to see each other as they fell through those dense clouds (which appeared to be at least somewhat a smoke cloud) so they don't get tangled up in each others chutes and can stay together.


Then doing a HALO is mindless bushwa.

FWIW I assumed they were trying to land on top of the buildings to create observation posts to call in air strikes? Since the city was apparently covered in smoke and dust clouds. But of course the Big G would be super easy to spot with thermal imaging or radar...
