Not clicking that. Off topic - my fascination with clicking on movie trailers to find out a 2 and a half minute plot summary with spoilers is at the lowest. If I'm interested in a movie, I'll watch it, regardless of the trailer. If it sucks, it sucks. Depends on the subject matter or who's involved in the project.

I like the sounds of the monsters and the sound track so far from that clip. I wonder if it will follow the classic form of Godzilla getting his ass kicked, and then regrouping to wreck its ass mercilessly. The Asia trailer shows a different encounter of the beast flying towards Godzilla.

 

I'm going to splurge and purchase buttery popcorn and a large coke for this one. lol

I liked it, but I think it could have focused a little more on the monster battles. Hopefully if there is a sequel it will do just that. The roar in the theater was outstanding... it was so loud it almost hurt... some people might not like that. lol

 

The first two appearances of Godzilla were teases, cutting off the action as it was about to go down to focus on the human characters. With the more fluid and natural movement Godzilla had than a man in a suit could ever dream of, it would have been nice to see him in action more.

 

The US military plan was beyond stupid, after failing multiple times, they kept trying to do the same thing.

 

The build up for the radiation breath was epic. and Godzilla killing the female MUTO was brutal.

 

I didn't like how they had Godzilla pass out after every fight, it made him seem weak. The scientific explanation about the monsters feeding off the radiation of the earth's core put a handicap on him.

Honestly the next one should definitely be Godzilla vs. Ghidorah. Not only does this film set it up nicely... with how advance the CG was, Ghidorah would look outstanding.

The movie was awesome for what it was, Gareth delivered and it was worth the wait. Cheese in many parts but I was a happy pup. I keep hearing mixed reviews and people need to know what to expect from a Gareth movie like they know what to expect from a Bay or Spielberg or Cronenberg film.

II finally watched Godzilla 2014 & it is awesome.
 

  • I could be wrong but did that kid have a picture of Godzilla 1998 on his wall?
  • An American family living in Japan feels a little off but I rather not complain about it since I don't complain about previous white Marvel characters no longer being white.
  • I laughed a little over the floppy disk only to remember that scene probably would've taken place in 1999.
  • The MUTOs faces look similar to Graboids from Tremors but with large orange eyes.
  • The electric going out in Las Vegas reminded me a little of an episode of Megas XLR.
  • I'm a little disappointed that the MUTOs had the same Egg plot point as Godzilla 1998, but less threatening as the MUTOs weren't attacking humans unless they were attacked.
  • The MUTOs nuzzling was probably my favorite part of the movie.
  • Godzilla Wins! Though the plot to why Godzilla hates the MUTOs feels lacking. My guess is Echo Location could be a weakness or just annoys the 2014 version.
  • I don't see why anyone would assume Godzilla was fighting for humans. And the scene where Godzilla is swimming with the US ships was actually the US military trying to surround Godzilla.
  • I hope one of the MUTOs eggs survived; preferably Female.
  • I'm glad the US Military was worthless when it came to fighting Giant Monsters.
  • Godzilla not really being in his own movie didn't bother me much. though I guess that either the movie wanted to emphasis the MUTOs were a threat even though they really weren't. Or they didn't want to focus on Godzilla walking which I didn't find as goofy as I thought I would.
  • The only real threat here was humans using Nuclear Energy. Unfortunately none of them regret it. And the US military was stupid enough to think Nukes would solve the problem.


 

Beyond that Godzilla 1998 is still my favorite Godzilla since I find her hot. And no its not he as men don't produce eggs. Something fiction writers fail to comprehend about Science.

Godzilla 98 would have been a good movie if it wasn't called Godzilla.

My bad I was referring to the giant lizard in the 1998 version; not the movie itself.

I think 2014 version definitely has the right elements for a Godzilla movie.

I still find Godzilla 1998 better than Dragon Wars which I have 0 fond memories of.

 

*Edit*

In order to see Godzilla 1998 properly used as a character you'd have to watch Godzilla The Series

      Although its also on the PS4, I purchased Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana for the Switch recently because it's just been collecting dust. It was probably the better option anyways because the graphics look like something out of the N64/PS2 era with modern draw rates. Not a knock against it, as its quite charming... but the game looks like it belongs on the Switch rather than PS4. Everything about this game is so 1998. I've never played any of the Ys games before, but this one caught my eye for the old school hack and slash. It's very Dark Cloud-ish minus the world building. Sprinkle some old Zelda in there as well. The combat is relatively simple with 1 button main attack, and 4 special attacks that consist of holding R1 and pressing A B Y X. These use a SP meter that replenishes on kills. There are also dodge and block counters that give you a special speed combo ability. You have a party of 3, and characters that join where you can swap them out and swap between the three in combat. Each character has a assigned damage type (Slash, Precise, Bash). Having all 3 types helps weaken the right enemies susceptible to these plus you get a rare drop bonus... rather than the 1.1x bonus for having two of the same. Anyways, the story is campy but interesting, the dialogue is 90's cringeworthy, and its a lazy sprinkle of actual voice acting and text reading. The world is  large but a bunch of sectioned off instances that quickly load without a loading screen as you cross them. There are fast travel points but not in every sector, so it requires some old school memorizing where to go at times. As you get special gear, you'll find places that were inaccessible previously open up. I'm 20 hours in and I don't feel like I'm even half way through. So at $60, I feel like I'm getting my money's worth for a decent nostalgia kick. I bet this will be a free PS Plus game next year so when it comes up I highly recommend it without even finish it. I'll report back when I beat it with a proper review.

      Its been quite the stressful couple weeks. Lady had her surgery and is having a very slow recovery process. My bank required specific repairs to the garage to approve the mortgage and instead of paying a massive price to a contractor me and my friend spent 2 days this last weekend busting our asses in 90 degree days with 90% humidity and full sun working on the garage. Thats all done and accepted now.. Yay. Getting into the final stretch here with the house. Hopefully I'll be moving by the end of the month. I might actually have free time this weekend... finally. *knocks on wood*

      The first two eps of AoT season 3 are better than season 2 in its entirety.

      Originally I wasn't going to say anything until I actually finished watching the series (which should be Monday or Tuesday night) but you were right DX, The Ancient Magus' bride is spectacular and I say this after only watching 15 episodes.
      I have to say it's up there with Violet Evergarden for both visuals and story (and it's been awhile since I've seen a show that has completely drawn me in to the point that I sacrifice sleep just to watch another episode). I honestly didn't think the premise would suck me in this much but I'm glad it did (and both episodes with Nevin were extremely well done (I shed some manly tears they were so emotionally impacting)).
      I honestly have to say this is probably going down as one of my favorites shows from the last few years (which isn't really hard considering my problems with the last few seasons), only taking second to the masterpiece that was Violet Evergarden. I can't recommend this show enough for those who want a story driven show focused on character development and world building (I'm just sad I only have 8 episodes and 3 OVA's left, really hope this gets another season once the manga gets further along).

      This simuldub season is pretty meh compared to last. If it wasn't for the fact that MHA and out of all things; Black Clover was still running. I'd be hard pressed to keep up. Ep 1 of Overlord season 3 felt like a waste of time, but the second one made things pretty interesting. Angels of Death seems kind of bland so far. How not to Summon a Demon Lord is a typical fanservice trapped in a video game world show. Same goes for The Master of Ragnarok & Blesser of Einherjar. Lord of Vermilion feels like a better Tokyo Majin.. which isn't saying much. Hopefully it will be something better. Harukana Receive is bouncy bikini beach volley ball, but Haruka is a total best girl, so I'll shamelessly enjoy it. On the opposite end, I'll skip Free! because I'm not watching a bunch of dudes swim, and I'm already watching HR and Hanebado... an anime about freakin Badminton. With Dies Irae and AoT not staring until later in the month that leaves three unlikely contenders for a surprise best in season for me, that isn't Overlord or AoT which I already expect to be solid at worst.
      Magical Girl Raising Project is apparently a dark ass violent series with cute moe magic girls. A total clash of genres. The first two eps only have brief hints at it so far, its mostly just cutesy. But if it turns out like I think it has the potential too. It should be pretty interesting.
      Chio's School Road is a "school" anime thats about Chio's walk to school every day, instead of the actual school day. The absolute absurd happens apparently every time. The first three eps have been pretty hysterical so far. Its different, so I like it.
      Island is a pretty big mystery to me as to what its suppose to be about. It has my interest to see how it unfolds. It can honestly go either way. I guess I'll be reviewing these at the end of the season and we'll see how my opinions have changed since this status update.
