Then go watch that Broderick GINO abortion. He was slim in that one.

/Excited for the movie

Whar Raymond Burr? Whar?
 
2014-04-29 04:02:54 PM
His proportions do seem a bit... strange.
 
2014-04-29 04:03:40 PM
Most people pork-out on an 'merikun diet - thus a monster eating 'merikuns would chub-up as well.

Anyway, aren't people supposed to start yelling, "Man in suit! Man in suit!"...?

You mean "super happy fun lizard".

He's not fat. He's big boned.
 
2014-04-29 05:35:55 PM
his size is likely to be the least of the problems this movie will have

I'm still hoping for a CGI of man in a big rubber suit.

Meh, the best Godzilla was Bob Cat Goldthwait in One Crazy Summer.
 
2014-04-29 05:56:49 PM
Oh sure, you all fat shame him when he isn't around but wouldn't do it to his face.   Like many people in America, he has body issues and none of you with your fat shaming language are willing to help him.  Who knows what sort of emotional stress he might be under that compel him to eat metric tons of humans in a single sitting.  Poor soul needs your empathy not your derision.

As pointed out on the Kotaku thread on this subject, Gojira has been really fat in the original movies as well.

Of course he is, because obesity is the real monster.

This actually is a good thing in my book. It tells me the director actually spent some time thinking realistically about the design. Sure, Godzilla isn't going to be 100% plausible, but basic physics says that with a monster that big, he's going to need really thick legs and meaty thighs to be able to stand up and move around. They are going to have to play fast and loose with SOME science, but I feel like it makes for a better movie when you attempt to make things at least somewhat plausible (making spacecraft move like they do in the new version of BSG instead of like they did in Star Wars, for example). It generally leads to better ideas overall.

The head seems a little small, maybe, but I don't see anything oddly out of proportion for a beast this size.  For a reptile to walk on two legs, I'd think the legs and tail would have to be chunky.  The arms would be well muscled from all the killing and knocking buildings down.  The neck would be the result of some sort of hormonal or pituitary issues.  And I'm spending too much of my day thinking about the dimensions of a giant radioactive dinosaur.  Though I don't like the frills.  I was never a fan of frills, no matter how much the Stegosaurus community frowns on my shenanigans.

Forgot about that part, been years since I seen it
 
2014-04-29 07:16:54 PM
So from the latest trailer, it looks like Godzilla is something made by man, to fight against Kaiju that are attacking?  Is that correct?

Angela Lansbury's Merkin: So from the latest trailer, it looks like Godzilla is something made by man, to fight against Kaiju that are attacking?  Is that correct?


Nah, I think it's back to what it's always been. This is where Godzilla keeps his stuff and he allows us to live here too. But if we get all uppity and start messing with his stuff in a way he doesn't like, or cause some other monster to rise and and mess with his stuff, he's gonna take it out on all of us.

Maybe the takeaway from that movie should have been "Americans shouldn't make Godzilla movies."

He was looking pretty chunky in his cameo in PeeWee's Big Adventure

I think it's closer to "I'm gonna take care of this and if I happen step on 1 million of you idiots in the process I don't care."

/hoping for a "Don't make me come back again." look at the movies end.

I'm pretty sure Orson Wells counts a dozen or so times towards and fatness quotient.

Well, crumbs... it was Raymond Burr and it would be nice if I could spell "any" properly.

At least he doesn't do this...

Back when the first Americanized Godzilla movie came out, they had a screening at some con where the actor to first wear the big rubber Godzilla suit in the 50's was in the audience. After the film, his reaction simply was "That not Gojira. That Iguana!".

That Godzilla scene is one of the most ridiculously telegraphed jokes ever. It always cracks me up.

I think they just pissed off the big guy.
 
2014-04-30 03:39:48 AM
Eh, they're going back to the old "basically a wandering volcano that doesn't care about your shiat" Godzilla, I don't really thing that making him actually shaped more like a mountain again is uncalled-for (after the first movie the japanese films slimmed him the fark down too, it wasn't just the US version that was guilty of that nonsense).

What's the worst remake, the Marky Mark Planet of the Apes, the Johnny Depp Willy Wonka, or the 90s Godzilla?

There've been a few exceptions, but yeah, mostly all they've done since the early 90's is reboot  the same films they made 30 years previously.

Honestly, they've retold Godzilla vs Mothra how many times now?

I sort of resent all the hate the Tim Burton's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory gets. Have you read the book?

I thought Tim Burton's movie was a great deal more accurate to the book. Heck, the oompa loompas actually sing the songs from the book.

I admit that Depp's version of Wonka is utterly different from people's expectations, but it is really not that far from the original story. Now, if you don't like the original story as much as the first movie, I can certainly understand that.

Naw man. I'm not a 'don't remake what I love!' guy in general but Gene Wilder owned that role.
