Godzilla 2: King of Monsters

Post by tezunegari » 2019-04-25 04:18am



Who knew "Somehwere Over the Rainbow" could work this well as background music for a Kaiju Movie...

I have to admit I'm looking forward to this.

"Bring your cannons, I have my armor."
"Bring your mighty... I am my own champion."
Cue Unit-01 ramming half the Lance of Longinus down Adam's head and a bemused Gendo, "Wrong end, son."

I am as well, obviously.

They seem really into the whole package.

To demonstrate this, they paid for the rights to use Godzilla's theme, Mothra's Song, and Blu Oyster Cult's "Godzilla!"

Reviewing movies is a lot like Paleontology: The Evidence is there...but no one seems to agree upon it.

It took three goes, but America looks like it might pull off a really good Gozilla movie, a good anime adaptation and a good video game movie in the same year.

Who are you and what have you done with the real 2019?

Dude, SHUT UP, or we might have to get the real 2019 back!

But, seriously, I think it was just a mater of the right people getting a hold of the rights to the francise, and then PAYING ATTENTION to what made the original franchise work.

I didn't know that.

It keeps getting better and better. :D

the Godzilla reboot is brilliant because it replaces the original analogy of nuclear holocaust with the idea that an eschaton event can occur - one wherein the divine is supplanted by man-made climate catastrophe, in this case represented by primordial, elemental monsters awakening from the earth and taking the place of gods and angels and demons. And the trailer is pretty explicit in keeping that going in the new one - Ghidorah roaring to the heavens in the background, overshadowing a foreground cross is about as subtle as a brick to the head
