worked nicely with the Twin Peaks Fire Walk With Me trailer.

Wow - that was pretty close.

Of course it probably helps that movie trailers have pretty much been standardized over of the decades, but it was still pretty neat to see how well it meshed.

Godzilla is one of this movies where someone deserves a lot more credit for the trailer than the movie. My best example of this is Prometheus.

/still like Godzilla

I don't think that's the JP trailer. I think it's just clips of JP chosen to fit the Godzilla audio.

That being said, that's pretty cool.

this is correct, it's mentioned in the link.  And it is pretty cool.  I bet you could do the same with the Matthew Broderick version, too.

Turns out the Godzilla audio track matches Jurassic Park clips edited together to match the Godzilla audio track pretty well.

That's what I was thinking as well. I don't recall any of the Jurassic Park trailers fading to black between cuts. I could be wrong, though...

Ever watched a set of (U.S.) horror movie trailers?  They're all exactly the same.  Doesn't surprise me that big monster destruction movies would be similar as well.

I'd like to offer up Man of Steel.  Great trailers.  Good music, well paced, and they gave the impression this was going to be a cool origin story showing the Kents dealing with the complexities of raising an alien powerhouse and Clark trying to come to terms with that fact as well, all in a modern and 'realistic' setting.  I liked the fact they appeared to show an interest in developing Krypton more, making the inclusion of a Kryptonian villain potentially more interesting as well as giving Superman the ability to show his big screen potential with modern movie making technology.

The Illuminati use this method of sound compression to activate their sleeper agents.

I think I would have gone nuts in this movie had they used the classic Godzilla theme at any point.  It's an amazing piece of music.

Yep, you're both right. Prometheus was meh, and "Man of Steel . . . was uninspiring." Still liked Godzilla though.

Agreed. I really wish that the story followed the father character all the way through, as the trailer implied. I was much less invested in his son's arc. But the movie still exceeded my expectations for it.

I have never seen so much spam on Fark as I have for this remake of a remake.

chewielouie: Prometheus was meh


...many things but meh is certainly an understatement.  Did they finally treat the entire Alien franchise, and the audience's intelligence, the way Roman Polanski would treat an underage houseguest?  Yes.  Did they squander Charlize Theron and Noomi Rapace's considerable talents and a whole lotta high-dollar fx on high-concept gobbledygook?  Definitely.

Wait til Hitler finds out.

I wonder how ell it would mesh with Spielbergs War of the Worlds...
