lemurs: texdent: If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around, does it make a sound?

If no one is around, how do you know it fell?

Anyway, Godzilla sequel in the works so better get used to it.


With it doing well, hopefully that means that the next one will bring other Toho monsters into play, which could be a ton of fun.

Shelbyville: Godzilla was god farking awful. Just awful. Like 1998 Godzilla with Ferris Bueller was more watchable. At least that movie had a Godzilla monster in it. You get a grand total of like 10 minutes of Godzilla screen time. And don't give me that crap that the director was building tension before the big reveal, like Jaws. Jaws was a work of art, this was a pile of shiat. We came to a Godzilla movie to see Godzilla duke it out with another giant monster. The first time the monsters both get to the same island, the only footage we see of them duking it out was in the background on the goddamn tv a kid was watching. WTF? Thats the main thing I want to see, not worried about whether soldier boy Ford's feelings were hurt. Or its in the background over a characters shoulder out of focus. We came to see a Godzilla movie, you know what that's supposed to be. And in the final 20 minutes when they finally do fight it was over way way too fast. How the fark did this pile of shiat cost $160 million?

And the plot. King Kong vs Godzilla had a more coherent plot. That one where the Japanese trade Godzilla and Rodan to aliens for the cure for all diseases so he can fight King Ghidora on Planet X had a more coherent plot. Good lord was their plot holes galore. Lpng, boring, tedious, and a waste of your best acting talent. Bryan Cranston is done after 20 minutes then is completely forgotten. Walter White WTF?

Toho needs to ban America from ever releasing another Godzilla movie ever again. Stop letting us gaijin ruin Godzilla.

I'm planning to take a half-day from work tomorrow to hit the gym and then go see it (or vice versa, depending on showtimes and all that). Timing didn't shake out this weekend.

/Last movie I saw in the theater was Burn After Reading
//Don't make a point of going to the movies that often, but I'll make an exception for the G-man.

I liked Pacific Rim a lot better than this.  Cranston is goo, and the movie seems good while he's in it,  but he is in it for what seems only five minutes, and then the guy playing his son is incredibly wooden and un-inteersting. Moreover, 8 out of 10 things he does (and he's doing them only because the plot is bent into a pretzel to put him in that situation) thru the film are FAILURES.

All the authority figures in this movie act particularly stupidly, even for a monster movie where that's kind of a trope.  Among the things that bothered me:  "we know all three of these things feed off of radiation and can detect warheads and reactors....they even ate a Russian Submarine. Let's follow this one at arm's length, with a  U.S. Aircraft carrier". Powered by... anybody? Anyone?

The boss battles were IMO too obscured by dust or darkness or storms. Much of the TOHO G's best battle scenes took place in well-lit daylight, and I wanted that here.

Godzilla was so full of plot holes, Godzilla himself should have fallen through them.

Mad_Radhu: texdent: JonBuck: Saw it. Loved it. Next question.

If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around, does it make a sound?

Unless someone can provide a reasonable mechanism for how it would NOT make a sound, we should assume it does. To think otherwise is needlessly complicating things.


But does a sound exist without a listener?  It's nothing but vibrations of the air until someone is there to interpret it as sound.

The Mutos actively seek out sources of radiation. Godzilla actively seek out the Mutos.

If you are going to be that guy at at least be accurate.

boogerwolf: Pacific Rim was shiat. If you liked that more than this Godzilla you smoke crack out of a dead hooker's ass.

WITH that said, less of Wooden Kick-Ass boy, more Watanabe and Cranston and the movie would have be world's better. Or more of Cranston dragging Kick-Ass up and down the screen with Watanabe's character orchestrating it all from the safety of a ship.

SPOILERS AHEAD!!

I REALLY thought (and maybe wanted) Godzilla (and then the MUTOs) to be Moby Dick to Cranston's Capt. Ahab. It would have been an obvious trope but it would have marginalized Kick-Ass boy and that would have made the movie better.

Still a solid B+ of a movie.


Pacific Rim was good, had it moments with the battles against those monsters

If you want me to be THAT GUY... then  why doesn't Big G stick around to EAT the dead mutos? Isn't that what an "alpha predator" does? EAT his prey? No, instead he hits the beach and swims off. maybe MUTOS have too much gluten?

I don't recall any Godzilla movie that really shows him feeding.... do you?

Why does he even have to eat them? The whole movie, it's hammered home that whenever one of these things gets too big of a head, it's Godzilla's job to step up and say, "NOPE", and damn the collateral damage.

Again, it's HIS world; we just get to live in it.

And he's survived for an untold number of years without having MUTOs to feed on.

I wonder what that could imply...

Vibrations are vibrations, no matter if someone is there to make it sound. That's why philosophical wankery is pretty useless compared to basic science. If you have a liquid or gas medium, and a big heavy object falls, it's gonna make vibrations that would be interpreted as sound. If you want to argue otherwise, the onus is on you to prove that a sound is not made in the absence of a listener.

It's like that whole bullshiat about if people see colors the same, which is pretty stupid considering that color can be ties to specific wavelength of light. Not to mention we have farking Pantone color swatches that pretty much are designed to help people agree on colors.

Pretty much "this".

My roommate and I were going to see Godzilla in the theater yesterday but he was too busy doing other things and I'm not that interested in it.

X-Men DoFP?  Yes please.  I'll see it opening weekend unless something crazy happens.

what about "Which had the better Godzilla?"
 
2014-05-18 04:41:04 PM  
This was a classic Godzilla movie. I grew up watching them on Philly's Channel 17 "Creature Feature" Saturday afternoons and I'm sure to me then the effects were just as titanic as today's effects were -- they honored the spirit of the older movies but de-cheesed them, and, for me, that was all I really wanted from this movie.

So, I liked it, warts and all. Obviously the weak point was Lt. Stockcharacter, but I suspect any chance of getting characterization out of him was given a double beat-down by his lack of talent (his scenes with Cranston in Japan were particularly glaring) AND the actual U.S. Navy script approval that came with being able to use the toys - this character had to be heroic, period.

It's a shame that Cranston or Watanabe couldn't have been our audience analogue.

lousyskater: Godzilla 2014 can be broken up into thirds. the first third and last third are farking amazing, the middle third is pretty meh. All in all, it actually felt like a Godzilla movie too which is what really mattered to me the most.


A movie with three acts?!?
 
2014-05-18 04:47:26 PM  

TheGrayCat: I give the Godzilla scenes 5 stars.  The human scenes (which are 70% of the movie) 2 stars.

They waste the talent of both Bryan Cranston and Ken Watanabe and focus instead on stone-face boy and the Other Olsen Girl.

WHAR GODZILLA?  WHAR?


Not to mention all the people in the film manage to do is get in the farking way.

Saw it yesterday, liked it. HALO jump sequence was cool. The real mark out moment for me was when Godzilla defeated the one MUTO by breathing his atomic breath into its mouth and then ripping its head off.

I think you nailed it right there, especially given that in the end the US military was useless against Godzilla and the MUTOs.

So I guess people aren't allowed to not like things anymore without being a troll?

The movie was a pile of shiat. Boring as hell and Godzilla is hardly in it.

Reminded me of Ang Lee's Hulk movie where you get 2 minutes of Hulk at the end of the movie and two hours of boring nonsense.


It's amazing how old that shiat is getting and people are still doing it.

2014-05-18 05:08:18 PM  
I had the same problem with this Godzilla movie as I had with Pacific Rim. I just couldn't give a flying fark about any of the characters. All of them could have died, and I really wouldn't care.

The big problem with this Godzilla movie is the fact that it's a goddamn monster movie, and no monsters show up until the 2nd half of the farking movie. WTF?? And even when the monsters did finally show up, I just really didn't care about the story. I loved Taylor-Johnson in kick-ass, but in this movie he was the most boring, wooden character I've ever seen. And Cranston was a totally useless character. Total waste of a great actor.

I thought the low point was the "mom" MUTO rubbing her egg sac with a nuke.  Wasnt sure if that was "intentional" as in she was trying to feed them or just crappy animation.

Some mild spoilers as if anyone will care:


The humans were awful in this film. I cannot imagine there is a more bland acting and bland looking human that whatever meatpile they had as the "lead". We had what, 3 kids in danger in the film none of whom you had a shot to care one tiny lick about.
They spent a lot of time evac-ing his kid from SF and in the end it didn't matter because if he'd stayed with mom it would changed zippo in the film.
No one can explain why the nuke was on a train as opposed to the helicopter which they wound up using so that didn't matter.
They burn a lot of screen time arguing about nuking the 3 monsters....and then they do do that so all that arguing....didn't matter.
Cranston and Meat Pile spend a lot of time getting those disks to prove something and then, it doesn't matter.

....and beat goes on. Nothing really mattered in the film. Godzilla was gonna smite the critters, we did nothing to help him and he won.

You pretty much nailed by opinion. The amount of Godzilla time wouldn't bother me, except if you're going to focus on human characters don't pick the one that is so goddamn bland. Cranston could have been interesting, but he's barely in it.
 
2014-05-18 05:24:50 PM  
For me it was the best Godzilla film since the original.

Most importantly - they got Godzilla himself right. Even managed to make his radioactive fire beam look cool. I grew up on Saturday afternoon airings of Toho flicks so I wasn't sure how that would translate - wound up awesome.

They did the right thing in having him be the hero.

I didn't mind soldier boy as much as most I just think the tease was stretched out a bit too much. That said Edwards had the right idea in doing it Jaws style and as this is only his second flick I'm sure his pacing will improve with time.

Honestly I grinned ear to ear like a kid when the monster battle started, they hit that out of the park.

Pacific Rim.

But seriously, I turned to Mrs. RyansPrivates after the Godzilla credits rolled and asked here what she thought.  She said "it was pretty good I guess, better than the other one," Not exactly high praise.  She hasn't seen Pacific Rim, but I think it was better in just about every way as well.  One of the big things that bothered me was

HERE THERE BE SPOILERS

the death of Cranston a la Samuel L. Jackson in Deep Blue Sea not even halfway through the movie.  I was looking forward to Cranstons acting and there wasn't enough of it.

AdrienVeidt: I liked this Godzilla flick, but I liked Pacific Rim more in every category I can think of to compare between them.


My feelings as well. I want my giant monster/robot movies to have a lot of giant monster/robot fighting. Pacific Rim delivered a good amount of it; Godzilla, not so much.
 
2014-05-18 05:30:07 PM  
I just got back from seeing Godzilla.
I liked it, I thought Cranston was very good. I just wish they had cast Aaron Paul as the son ;)
At least with the emp stuff and the radiation based metabolism we had monsters that could give the US military a challenge.
The last Godzilla movie I watched had the tag line "size matters" and really helped prove that.

CodeMonkey4Life: At least with the emp stuff and the radiation based metabolism we had monsters that could give the US military a challenge.


Isn't a lot of military hardware EMP-harded, though? A lot of the dual role fighter jets are expected to drop tactical nukes if things go really sideways, so they'd be kind of useless if their systems were disrupted by EMPs. Granted a high altitude nuke is going to have WAY more of an EMP effect than a small tactical nuke, but the smaller nuke is still going to have some effect just outside the blast radius. Maybe I'm wrong, but I thought there was some expectation of having to fight in an environment where nukes were going off nearby in the design of military gear.
 
2014-05-18 05:57:55 PM  

BafflerMeal: Coming from the guy who did 'Monsters', I think we got out money's worth.  I was really happy that they folded in the traditional Godzilla history and cultural purposes / tropes  of the original as well.

The slow burn was great too.  In many ways this film was an homage to Jaws in how it treated Godzilla.

[unspeakablegibberer.files.wordpress.com image 396x297]


You could really tell the similarities between films with the train sequence, reminded me of the jungle sequence in Monsters.

sure it wasn't realistic but at least in the context of the movie it acted as an equalizer.
which is all I ask from a fantasy movie, some excuse to give the big lizard a chance.
