Looks good, though it surely won't beat the version with that Puff Daddy/Jimmy Page song.
I'd watch that
My work here is done
that shot of the city burning with the red trails falling down was INCREDIBLE at that size
would be after that ad campaign, well we were wrong and Ferris Bueller sucks as an actor
knowing that if they ever happened IRL I'd be perfectly safe because I don't live in New York.
i would watch that.
Gojira be stomping tech startups and millionaires this time
I must've missed that, I was basing it on spotting what I thought was the Transamerica Pyramid in one scene.
was that it was perfectly set up for a sequel which never materialised.
Will go watch
loads of internet places are going wil over the idea that there is more than just Godzilla in this...
when the pinnacle has already been reached twice by South Korea:
(fao lazy / easily distracted people: these two are in English)
and equally so by North Korea:
( the first one seems like an edit - some of the dialogue is different - honestly it's A LOT less awkward / more grammatical, and the credits have been changed from the original - tons of shots of the director to a national song, lol. can't find the regular version anywhere though. everything about the film / director / motivations is super messy and nationalist. although maybe not as messy as the background to the NK one :-\ )
Looks well made, good actors, weren't giving too much away with a dumb trailer.
Then boom right at the end they show Godzilla and it looks just like the 90s one, all enthusiasm gone it's probably another 6/7 out of 10 that I'll probably regret spending part of my life watching. Blah.
this... Jimmy Hill... quality to it...
that the issue with the 1998 version was how Godzilla looked.
I honestly don't know why it needs another remake, 1998 version and Cloverfield wasn't that long ago :/
I was sad when they killed the 1998 Godzilla... I think I understood how Lee Ryan felt when 9/11 overshadowed the plight of whales and dolphins.
maybe? I've not seen Pacific Rim yet (I have it to watch, natch). Not sure how this is a sequel/prequel or whatever.
but Pacific Rim bombed in the US and they've not confirmed a sequel yet, let alone a crossover.
I was thinking about this earlier. The last version just feels like it was recent because it's in our/my comparable timeframes. I'm not sure I'd feel the same about a film from 1974 that was remade in 1990, for instance. Sixteen years ago is a long time!
