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

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.

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

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.

that wasn't Tokyo


He was referencing the lyrics to a Blue Oyster Cult song about Godzilla. I think it was called The Lizard That Couldn't Slow Down.

Official Godzilla Plot Synopsis:

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.

If we ever see Jet Jaguar again, I'll be gobsmacked. Godzilla versus Megalon  is one of the cheesiest Godzilla movies, ever, but I still love it.

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?

Definition of Insanity, people. Definition of Insanity.
