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

that was ... beautiful

ZeroCorpse: 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.


I have the Criterion DVD. It is a great film.

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.

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.

Build-up

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.

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.
 
2013-12-10 07:47:05 PM  
It's got one thing going for it: they've made Godzilla absolutely farking massive.
 
2013-12-10 08:01:16 PM  
Love me some Godzilla, hoping this isn't a complete turd.

Re other monsters: will probably be Rodan and/or Mothra, as they're the best known Toho kaiju. I'd love to see Ghidorah. Please, no Minya.

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. I know Guillermo Del Toro was saying he'd like to do a sequel with Godzilla fighting the Yeagers, but I know that's wishful thinking. But it'd be so awesome.

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.

Moths. There is surprisingly a lot there, in my opinion.

Saw that when it first leaked a while back (but it only had the one roar at the end). That is how you do a teaser trailer, I went from, "Meh, maybe I'll see it" to "Please take my money".

An epic rebirth to Toho's ico ...


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.

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.
