GODZILLA (2014) review - The Showa Must Go OnGODZILLA (2014) has hit theaters, and for months (years for most Godzilla fans), potential audiences have been anticipating a return to form for the Lizard King - a film that will revisit the themes of the 1954 original and deliver a brooding, apocalyptic story of destruction and doom.GODZILLA (2014) review - The Showa Must Go On7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Instead, what we got could best be described as a sequel to THE TERROR OF MECHAGODZILLA (1975).
Trust me, I wouldn't begin a review with a hyperbolic, attention-grabbing statement like that without explaining it. For the moment, let us turn back the clock and toss out a quick recap of the film's plot. Obviously, this review will contain a metric crapload of SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS, but you'll complain anyway, so let's get on with this.
After a mysterious event in 1954 regarding the Castle Bravo nuclear test and an unknown giant organism, the story jumps to 1999, where two scientists, Dr. Serizawa (Ken Watanabe) and Dr. Graham (Sally Hawkins) are investigating a massive underground tomb in the

So here's what we know:
- Action will take place in Japan, Hawaii, Las Vegas (that's the Mini Liberty, not the NYC original), San Francisco...and SOMEWHERE in the Pacific Northwest?
- Godzilla has been around since 1954...and the US military spent several decades just trying to KILL HIM.
- The MUTO creatures are in the trailer, as the flying one can be seen along with its long hook-like arm.
- There's SOME sort of egg-sack-thing on one of the nukes...could they be MUTO eggs?
- Cranston's character was involved in a nuclear accident in Japan 15 years prior to the film, and smells a conspiracy.
- Watanabe's character discovers some sort of massive fossil underground...
And there you have it
- Firstly, everybody needs to get in the mood by listening to this:
Keep your eyes on that page. Godzilla is coming...TOMORROW.

Man oh man oh shevitz, THAT was a thing, lemme’ tell ya.
Again, it has been recounted in many other places the play-by-play of exactly what went down, but it is impossible to convey the raw awesomeness in words alone. I daresay this flick is gonna’ be a crowd-pleaser. That said, I’ll just run through the highlights of what I saw.
- Aaron Taylor Johnson is escorting a little Japanese boy that I think he’s just keeping an eye on during this segment of the film. Not sure what the story is there, but they’re on a monorail when the power goes out.
- SOMETHING’S going on out in the Hawaiian jungle, and it starts a fire that catches the attention of attendees at a luau. Suddenly, a little girl notices the water from the shore receding…and people start running, because, y’

How to make a Godzilla movie, step-by-stepHow to make a Godzilla (or any kaiju) movie:How to make a Godzilla movie, step-by-step7 months ago in Personal More Like This
This is a pattern that I noticed in nearly every, single, Godzilla movie.
1. Introduce minor characters reacting to strange events or anomalies that can't be logically explained.
2. Slowly reveal that the strange events or anomalies are the result of kaiju (giant monsters).
3. Unleash kaiju to wreak havoc upon a densely-populated, major city. Like Tokyo for example.
4. Bring Godzilla or main kaiju in to kick some butt and take some names.
5. Beaten kaiju eventually recovers and/or recruits an ally.
6. All of the kaiju fight again and cause a massive amount of collateral damage to said, major city.
7. Godzilla / main kaiju wins.

New Godzilla manga?! - UpdateNope!New Godzilla manga?! - Update2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's apparently a chapter of the Winter Comiket Doujinshi. Maybe it'll pop up online? We'll see!
What a way to kick off the new year!
"A new nuclear war created by humanity has plagued the world, leaving it in a vulnerable state as a result intergalactic forces come into play and try to take over. Showa Godzilla, and the tough residents of Monster Island combat against the threat, and managed to force them into retreat. At the cost of their lives. Ten years passed, and the threat returns for a final attack. As they enter, so does a newly mature Godzilla, Minilla, along with a new generation of monsters. As the new King of the Monsters, due to mankind's foolishness and losing the closest thing he could call family, will Minilla forgive humanity and defend the world? Or will his wrath wipe everything out?"
Blender UI proposal!PLEASE READ! It's very controversial!Blender UI proposal!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
For those of you who do know, I mentioned that Blender is free 3D modeling software that's up in the clouds with 3D Max, etc. It's awesome software but the major holdup is the interface is so dificult to learn and it's very overwhelming. For beginners like myself it's a nightmare.
I just happened to come across a YouTuber called Andrew Price, and he uploaded a video about making Blender's UI much more user-friendly, because it's very jarring. For those of you who are interested I HIGHLY recommend checking his video out:
In the video description there's also a survey to give your thoughts. You don't need to sign up or anything dodgy, it's fine.
My artblock...... has now gone! For a few days my artistic skill and inspiration was lacking; I fealt that I didn't have enough innovation and that I was messing up. Truth is at school I was a fantastic artist and people highly admired my work, but when I came to DA I was smacked in the face by all the talent of other people who actually have a passion for drawing, rather than playing Caca Doody or watching crappy Teen Sitcoms. I'm not going to lie; I have gotten jealous and though the idea is to be patient I cannot help myself. I always try to get a drawing completed on the first go rather than completing it in parts (I tend to forget what to add to the drawing from the previous day). Sometimes I stare blankly at the canvas or just ghost the position of lines.My artblock...1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Many have been wondering about this thing called "Kaijuland" that I keep mentioning here-and-there on this site and others. But what is it? WHY is it? IS IT ALIVE? AWESOME TERROR! DYNAMIC VIOLENCE! SAVAGE ACTION! Or whatever.
Simply put, Kaijuland is a new game/property/thing coming from the aptly named Kaiju Empire LLC, a California-based game development studio. While I was in Burbank for Botcon 2011, I was invited out to the studio for a tour by Bill J. who pretty much runs the ship. Bill, being a big kaiju fan (particularly Ultraman) liked my work and wanted to have me involved
AVGN Gamera and Great Art!I'll try to keep this journal pretty straight forward and to the point. I find that I tend to ramble whenever I do these things and for that I am sorry.AVGN Gamera and Great Art!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
First off, it is October like many of you know, and the AVGN (Angry Video Game Nerd), is doing his annual 31 days of monster movie reviews for his Monster Madness. So far he has reviewed all the old Mummy movies and all the Hammer Horror Frankenstein films. Well now he is up to his third classic sequel series and it is Gamera. Yep, God Damn Gamera (his words to describe the monster and I aplogize to anyone if I offended them with that quote from James Rolfe). Today he started reviewing the first in the original Gamera series. Usually when he reviews something there is a huge surge of popularity that goes with it. Look at The Giant Claw. Almost everyone on the internet finally got to see how great that monster was So check out his Cinemassacre site! And I got to say, it does strike a cord with me. I actually had some of those Gamera
Could Sonic appear in Disney Infinity?WARNING: Lots of writing, meaning many words! If you hate reading then by all means don't read this. ^_^Could Sonic appear in Disney Infinity?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Hey guys! First off, I'd like to say I watched a few Disney Infinity trailers and some gameplay. I want the game. NAO. :iconbigmeowplz: It's like Little Big Planet but with a 3D create mode! I'm a sucker for creative games and Disney Infinity is just that. My only criticism is having to actually buy the toys themselves when they could just as well be unlocked within the game itself. That's my concern, but then again I have two little brothers who love toys, so I could collect the toys for them before they've stopped being made and complete the majority of sets. Kill two birds with one stone!
Onto the main point: I have a theory that Sonic the Hedgehog could make an appearance in Disney Infinity. Allow me to put emphasis on COULD. I'm not saying he definitely will, but COULD. Allow me to explain how he could make an appearance as a collectable figure and playable charact

Personally? I like it. It's...well, it's Godzilla! Kind of a big blend of everything that's come before. One thing I find most intriguing are the eyes. They aren't as fierce as we're more or less used to seeing...which says to me that this isn't really representative of Godzilla's entire range of emotion. Edwards went on record stating that Godzilla's "character" has been coming through in the visual effects process, so perhaps this is simply a neutral state for his face? Will the monster become considerably angrier-looking in the film? Time will tell! For the moment, he's a beast of intelligence and ancient power. There's something softer behind those eyes that the blind, unfurled rage we've so often been witness to in the past.

Part 2 of my story idea for the 2018 sequel to this year's "Godzilla".
Hi again guys. Since I've lain out the basic plot in Part 1, here I'll just go into detail on the critters, or "Super-Fauna" themselves. Artist credit goes to the filmmakers of the fan-film, "Godzilla: Heritage".
An estimated 145 meters long and with a weight of over 800 tons.
A relic of the dinosaur age, Anguirus was a fearsome apex predator. The species' intelligence, agility and aggression put it at the top of the prehistoric food chain - hunting even the mighty Godzilla to appease its ravenous appetite. Possessing formidable natural abilities, Anguirus has become one of the most dangerous Super-Fauna on Earth. With his old foe hunting him once again, the King of
MY THOUGHTS ON THE 2014 GODZILLA DESIGNIn my opinion, there is no design more perfect as this, and I think most of that comes from the fact that this design is faithful to the original, it takes the classic beast and gives an updated, and modernized image, while staying faithful and respect the original suit designs that we've seen in the past at the same time. This new design is EVRYTHING I was expecting to get, I expected Godzilla to look different, I wanted him to look different, I'm all for updating Godzilla into a more modern look, and I knew he was gonna be in CGI this time, and, in my opinion, what I got did not disappoint me, it is a million times satisfying. "Godzilla has small spikes", some of the classic designs had smaller spikes, this one isn't any different; "Godzilla's feet look too different", you have to remember that this IS a modern Godzilla design, so I understand it'll take some time getting used to; "he looks a bit skinny", I don't know, he looks BIG like the classicMY THOUGHTS ON THE 2014 GODZILLA DESIGN1 year ago in Personal More Like This
