Saw it last night! I'd give it a C+/B-

For a movie about a giant lizard it gets a lot of thing right and starts off pretty promising but aside from Cranston and Watanabe, the cast is a complete bore. I hate to admit it, but I actually longed for Matthew Broderick or Hank Azaria to show up for some much needed commentary.

The movie does create an awesome mythology with a potential for sequels. However, this Godzilla reboot is all about stopping MUTO. Godzilla feels demoted to only second fiddle with little screen time and as a solution to MUTO.

The final fight scene is cheer envoking but the movie never elevates beyond "disaster porn." Whether a CGI building falls overs or a CGI building gets hit by a CGI tsunami, it all feels the same and there's neither remorse nor consideration for all the people swept under.

What they did leading up to it is what killed it for me and I walked out. Even if the final fight was awesome. What I had to sit through would not make up for it. I'll wait until the end of the weekend to get into detail on it since I consider what they did a spoiler.

The 1998 one is bad. But at least it's so bad it's entertaining.

So Pacific Rim is still the reining big monster movie?

Haha Roland Emmerich's Jurassic Park cash-in doesn't hold a candle to this. For all its faults, Godzilla (2014) has brought us the definitive Godzilla design and a worthy origin story.

I think we're all placing too much faith in a shallow medium, the action film. Ask anyone what their favorite movie is and 3 out of 4 times it will be a movie that wasn't really over the top. Just like most people wouldn't name a candy bar as their favorite food.

I watch all action movies with no preconceived notions and no great expectations.

With all the money it's bringing in, it still has a good chance of being #1 in the Box Office.

Like I said I'll go into detail on Monday so it gives everyone time to see it. I rarely give a movie benefit of the doubt now I'm regretting giving that to this film.
