Hello my friends,
Just wanted to drop a quick line and say hi.
Also, I am *so* looking forward to KoM more than any other movie this year. More than avengers, star wars.... I have watched a KoM trailer every single day since the first one came out. So hyped for this movie I might buy a ticket to a late night showing instead of my....preferred way of viewing movies.


Hope you are all well.

As you probably could guess, I still think of these American-made ones (let alone CGI) as imitation Godzilla, but for an imitation one, it's looking good and I'll probably go first showing with the fam and a friend.

Jeff still being around is better news than King of Monsters winning an Academy Award.

So i watched Shin Godzolla, partly out of wanting to reacquaint myself with it, and partly to show SC that I'm appreciative of all forms Godzilla. I caught the English dubbed version, which made a whole lot more sense than reading subtitles, and you know....I would have enjoyed it more if it weren't for all the political jibber jabber that was boring me to tears. I understand they purposely put that in there to show how a country could deal with massive disaster from a governmental point of view in modern society, but I wanted more big G. Maybe another Kaiju to tango with. And I do remember how the end baffled me as much this time as it did the last time.



I was in Target today and I happened to see a Shin Godzilla figurine made by NECA, so of course I picked it up. Toho deserves my money.

The filmmakers have pretty much confirmed that the tail thing was a giveaway of what Godzilla's 5th form would've been if he wasn't frozen. The theory is that he's adapting to the threat, so if people are the threat he would've spawned (or morphed into) little Godzilla people to counter them. As it turns out, that worked well for Toho, who would not have greenlit such a radical departure for Godzilla, but didn't mind hinting what could've been.

NECA has been doing good G toys at good prices lately.

As someone who watches some of those extreme sports documentaries, this was pretty good.

^Saw it Tuesday. It's the best of the American knock-off Godzillas, but I still won't be really excited until Toho comes back with a suitmation G film.
You should check out James Rolfe/Cinemassacre's review. He hit on a lot of the problems I too have with it.

Good thing was it amped up the monster action. Ghidorah's new ability was kind of cool and I liked that he was still from space. I was glad to wait through the credits not so much for the teaser as for the memorial to Nakajima.

I hated the Mothra design. Actually, I liked the wings, but hated that grasshopper type body.

If I'm lucky I'll see it before it leaves theaters, but I have a lot of issues right now to handle so it'll probably be a Netflix rental for me.

Warner Bros. Bosses Toby Emmerich & Peter Roth On Studio Post Kevin Tsujihara In Streaming Era, Disney/Fox & Potential ‘Godzilla vs. Kong’ Move – Produced By
Quote:
As far as franchise fatigue with Legendary’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters tanking, Emmerich said that next year’s monster movie Godzilla vs. Kong “will deliver for fans in the way they were looking for” in the latest Godzilla. “It might come out later in the year, so we can deliver an A+ movie” said Emmerich.
Sounds like it'll be undergoing reshoots after King of the Monster's reception.
