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.

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:

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 On5 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

-A friend reminded me that a little something called ATTACK OF THE FRIDAY MONSTERS! A TOKYO TALE came out on the 3DS virtual store recently.
I heartily recommend it to all of my fellow kaiju-lovers. Here's the catch, though - it's one of those pesky stories where battling titans are not, in fact, the point. It's a love-letter to not just the tokusatsu genre, but rather, the nostalgiac childhoods of many a Japanese citizen, growing up in the 1960's, where monsters and heroes were all the rage, and kids played outside and had their own adventures. It's GOONIES meets GODZILLA'S REVENGE with a dash of DEMEKING, with a heaping helping of ULTRAMAN GAIA: BATTLE IN HYPERSPACE.
The story is ultimately one of childhood. The peaceful Japanese suburb calls to mind the sort of kaiju story that Hayao Miyazaki would create - it revels in the mundane beauty of Japanese suburban life. I would normally say that those who are "expecting" a royal monster rumble would be "disappointed"...but that's

MYTH 1: The mild warming over the 20th century is well within natural variations recorded in the last millenium. The reported warming trend is up to twice what it should read as due to the uneven distribution of data collection methods concentrated in urban areas.
FACT: Science is well aware of the "urban heat island" effect and already accounts for it. However, further studies into their effects find no significant impact on overall climate data:

Thusfar, all that's confirmed are dual language tracks, but special features and/or whether or not any of the films will have their respective American-produced dubs (superior in quality to the "international" dubs) have yet to be mentioned. Given that it's a relatively small set from a new company under the Section 23 label, we can at least hope for more than the drag-and-drop releases from Sony a few years back.
- Secondly, a hardcover graphic novel adaptation of GODZILLA (2014) is being released by DC (though sources say it might be Legendary Comics) - either way, Art Adams, Eric Battle, an

So, basically you all need to drop what you're doing and watch this:
If you're a fan of kaiju flicks, Evangelion, Miyazaki, or hell, just special effects in general, you owe it to yourself to watch this. It's a short film made by Shinji Higuchi (The GAMERA trilogy), Hayao Miyazaki (Everything amazing ever) and Hideaki Anno (Evangelion). And it's nearly ALL PRACTICAL EFFECTS. Some CGI overlays and a few touch-ups and lasers and stuff, but yeah, practical effects. Explosions and miniatures and puppets.
Secondly, check out these podcasts from the Underbase! They review both MARS ATTACKS THE TRANSFORMERS and SPOTLIGHT: TRAILCUTTER, both of which were comics drawn by yours truly

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.
