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 On1 year 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

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’

10. Kudo's super-not-creepy 'Hackers'-style computer program (Godzilla x Megaguirus)
So during the fiery climactic battle between the title kaiju, Japan's big black-hole-gun-mounted-on-satellite death weapon is starting to fall apart and re-entering Earth's atmosphere, apparently having been made out of graham crackers and duct-tape. So they bring in super nerd Kudo to fix the problem with his trusty laptop. Right in front of all his fellow 'G-Graspers', he starts up his 'fix-it' program, showing a bizarre chibi version of the female protagonist (Major Tsujimori) in a nurse's outfit. Nobody bats an eye at this, btw, nobody wonders (out loud) why he has such a thing on his computer... or what he does with it in his spare time. His solution to the problem, which will grant them at least one more shot with the Dimension Tide, is to have this (apparently stalker-born
GODZILLAJust saw the new Godzilla movie.GODZILLA1 year ago in Personal More Like This
As a huge fan of the original Japanese Godzilla movies, I was not dissapointed, thoroughly enjoyed it and my only complaint was having to watch it in 3D...
Also, Godzilla is pretty fat but i don't mind that so much.
Never been a fan of watching movies in 3D anyway - it costs more, glasses sit on my eyelids, eyes hurt after a while and movie theatres tend to be warm so i sweat a bit where the glasses contact my eyelids and have to wipe occasionally, and I dont like the movies to tell my eyes what to focus on, I actually like looking for little details/cameos/easter eggs. Plus I so rarely go to the cinema that my last pair of 3D glasses gathered the thickest layer of dust it possibly could and I had to buy another pair.

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-step1 year 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.
A New Monster Battle Game?Hey guys - what if somebody, somewhere, was talking about the next big monster fighting game? And we needed YOUR help?A New Monster Battle Game?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here's the thing - with Kickstarter blowing up everywhere, and crowd-sourcing becoming viable, we could get Kaiju fans everywhere to pool their money, and get a game made. Not just any game, though! A game that exactly conforms to what WE, the fans who would pay for it, would want in a Kaiju battle game.
This isn't just idle speculation - Chris Mirjahangir, filmmaker from LA, got in touch with Simon Strange, the mastermind behind the last three Godzilla fighting games. After bringing me in, we all jumped onto Skype, and started banging around about what it would take to create a new, high-profile kaiju battle game. Turns out, "what it would take" is very dependent upon what we, the fans, would be willing to pay for.
So, in all seriousness, and FOR REALS I put out this question: What would you like to see in a new Kaiju battle game, and
Defending Godzilla 2014In 2010, Legendary Pictures acquired the rights from Toho to bring Godzilla back into mainstream pop culture via a big budget American made film, the first one since Roland Emmerich's insulting attempt in 1998 with Gareth Edwards, who had headed the independent creature-feature/road trip movie Monsters, attached to direct and actors such as Aaron Taylor Johnson of Kickass, Bryan Cranston of Breaking Bad and Ken Watanabe of Inception filling in as the lead human characters. It was released in May 16th, 2014 and for a while was number 1 at the box office before X-Men: Days of Future Past took that title. Unlike 1998 which is almost genuinely hated by critics and G-Fans, this movie came out more mixed. Some people liked it, others didn't. Now, while I can understand SOME reasons from people who didn't like it, I don't understand OTHER reasons. Well, I'm here to set the record straight (or at least try) and offer my defenses for one of the most overlooked and misread films of 2014.Defending Godzilla 20143 months ago in Personal More Like This

*if you guys are tired of hearing me talk about this, go ahead and ignore, im gonna go and talk for a long time here *
anyway the reason i probably keep thinking about this is cus it helps me envision personalities of each kaiju while i'm doing these comics, and hopefully it helps you all as well, i mean you dont have to agree with me but maybe it makes you all think about how you would write your own fanfiction or fanart and using the Toho kaiju as characters .. cus a lot of you just go with "Godzilla's a big tough guy, so he's gotta have a super deep voice and a mean ol king spirited personality", but then its like 'ok so .. what about the other kaiju who are big and tough? what do they sound like?' if your whole cast is a group of giants, then it gets kinda confusing to fo

Because of this, you not only have to be very accurate with proportions, shading, etc., you also have to capture what makes this person different than everyone else, and convey a particular emotion at the same time.
