- Firstly, the BIG news! Kraken Releasing (yes, that's what they're called) is putting out not one, not two, but THREE Godzilla flicks on Blu-Ray this year!
EBIRAH: HORROR OF THE DEEP
GODZILLA VS. HEDORAH
GODZILLA VS. GIGAN
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 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

Color composition!A Couple of months past, the last book of James Gurney came to my hands. It was about color and light and it has the greatest review about the subject I've ever found on a book for now.Color composition!4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Because of that great discovery, I've decided to compliment it with my own experience and that is why I started doint light tutorials:

But I think that I did something wrong, I tryed to explain color composition just by working in 1 picture, and so that you understand that it is necesary that you see more than one.
That is why I decided to make this picture selection and show you some pictures that I think represent the color composition very well. Here they are ordered by issues:
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 On10 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

50 Years of Guarding the Universe
An American Doujinshi by Matt Frank and Josh Bugosh
In the year 1965, from the depths of an arctic glacier, awoken by an accidental atomic explosion, came crawling the Friend of all Children, the Guardian of the Universe, the Terrible Terrapin of Tokyo, GAMERA. Sweeping the Japanese box office, and quickly becoming an pop culture icon in his own right, Gamera captured the hearts of kaiju fans the world over, both young and old. After 12 feature films, Gamera’s 50th anniversary is upon us in the year 2015…and any rumors of a celebratory film were quickly silenced. As the months march on, it seems less and less likely that the mighty reptile will recieve his due, even as the kaiju genre enjoys a resurgeance in popularity.
Ergo, kaiju artist Matt Frank, best known for his work on IDW Publishing’s various Godzilla comic series, has begun work on a standalone story, The Last Hope. Intended to be produced as a one-shot, self-p

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.

I wake up to blinding lights on a cold table. Where the heck am I? What am I doing here?
I see men in black approach me. My vision is still foggy, but I can see their faces clearly.
They are lawyers. Have I been caught? I'm not sure.
"Mr. Casket, I see that you are awake. Please, follow us."
I try to get up, but relize my body is stiff. Pain shoots through my back into my neck.
"Agghh!" I let out a groan. I finally get up. "What the heck did you do to me? I will kill you!"
"Nonsense, Casket. We'll explain everything in the next room."

GODZILLAJust saw the new Godzilla movie.GODZILLA11 months 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.

Anyway, congratulations to the VT crew. Now for a little story. First video I ever watched from them was the Doctor Who TARDIS mod (the one separate from A Skyrim Tale) when I happened to be watching a bunch of Doctor Who stuff that day. If I hadn't clicked on that one video, I probably never would have heard of them again, if at all, for a long time. I subscribed one year ago on July 17th, the day the Vacation Roleplay Map in Gmod came out.
Now my most successful series, Poet's Journal was recognized by my favorite person in the entire world and I feel so lucky and blessed that that happened. Not only that, Venturian himself told me

VenturianTale Character Tournament II WINNER! Casket swung his knife again, getting Toast in his stomach. Toast grunted, but lifted his hand to knock Casket back. He then darted over to his pistol on the ground, snatching it up. "Get back here!" Casket yelled, tossing a knife. Toast dodged it as Casket ran in. But he didn't make it. Toast fired his pistol, slamming a bullet into Casket and knocking him to the ground. Now, Jimmy Casket was about to be dead. Toast paced to Casket. He looked down. "I'm sorry," he said, firing a bullet, putting down Jimmy Casket. As Toast turned and walked, a voice said, "Johnny? Come back!" Toast spun around, seeing Johnny Ghost standing up. "Sir! You're alive!" he said, running and wrapping his arms around his back. "Sir, I thought you had died!" he said. Ghost smiled.

Godzilla Encounter and Pacific Rim!Man, I got back from G-Fest not but 24 hours ago...and there's so much to talk about!Godzilla Encounter and Pacific Rim!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Firstly, I went and saw me some PACIFIC RIM with the G-Fest crew. MAN what an amazing time at the theater - it was like watching a wrestling match. The theater rocked with elated cheers as steel fist smashed against reptilian flesh and bone.
As to the plot...I reached a strange revelation while at my table during the convention proper. If PACIFIC RIM, flaws and all, were an animated feature...would anyone have ANY complains about it? Personally I prefer the live-action-cartoon approach - it makes the universe feel all the more rich as a sumptuous visual feast.
That being said, the film isn't performing the way it should. It may pull a HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON and stick around for a time, earning its money over a period of time, but it's not looking great at the moment. Go see it! And a second and third time! There's a lot riding on PacRim's success so go support it!
