Godzilla made a boat load of money this weekend. Looks like a sequel is also in the works-
Godzilla 2

Hope you enjoy it Vaporman!

So yeah I saw the parts I walked out which was the last 20 minutes of the film (bits and pieces will see the whole thing when it's on DVD) and my opinion still stands. Not saying details until Vapor has seen it.

Does this compare to Peter Jackson's take on King Kong?

Tomorrow afternoon... I have an appointment with Godzilla.

This 2014 film is going to be the catalyst for an internet civil war.

Well, I've finally witnessed the 2014 film. In short, I enjoyed it a great deal. In fact, I would dare say it is one of the finest Godzilla films ever made.

Sure, it has it's faults. Perhaps it could have used a bit more monster fighting, but not too much. I say that because for them to have placed a great deal more action into it would have lessened the impact of the final portion of the film.

Now, for some spoiler-laden retrospection (highlight the text below to read):

Yes yes. I understand that many felt ripped off by Brian Cranston's character being killed off fairly early in the film. But the fact is, his character contributed all it could up to that point. To keep him on screen any longer would have been pointless. Once the "cat was out of the bag", his character had run it's course. It was then time to hand over screen time to characters that had something to contribute to the rest of the story.

There were seemingly a few plot holes here and there, but none that wouldn't be overlooked in any other popcorn summer flick.

I was not annoyed or disappointed by the action of either Johnson or Olsen, and Watanabe did well in his part.

I liked some of the Easter Eggs, like the word "Mothra" being visible in the old Brody house.

The final battle was well worth the wait. When Godzilla fires his atomic breath the first time, it's incredibly awesome. And then to use it to give the female MUTO a bad case of indigestion was sweet.


Overall, it was worth the money, and a great comeback after so many years of absence in film. Welcome back G!

Well, Godzilla is no longer #1 in the Box Office. That spot belongs to the X-men.
