Growing up through the 90s and seeing the takeover of digital effects in movies it's pretty fascinating to now at last see this thing I've always been curious about, being what it would look like if the Toho all-stars were turned into fully realized CGI creations, and it's pretty satisfying.
One of the things that bothers me about the mindset of the kaiju fandom is its stubborn, sometimes spiteful sentiments toward modern special effects, as though it's an insult to translate the kaiju into anything other than suitmation. Suitmation was a wonderful method, necessitated by the times and money, and those films will always be the foundation of our fandom, but the reality is that methods change and the audience expects films to adapt to look as good as possible, and I for one am very excited to see some of my old favorites (especially my boy Rodan) rock the world in high budget digital. With respect to the classics, I hope this film will encourage some of the naysayers to see the benefits of a new translation to bring in yet more fans.
YukisSpecial, While I'm more than excited to see a new take on Godzilla, including in the effects department, I don't exactly see it as a "step up". Different? Yes. Western? Extremely. The methods in which Godzilla were brought to life were never meant to be seen as photo realistic--In fact the entire point was to do the opposite of what Hollywood was trying to accomplish even at the time. Instead of evoke realism, the techniques and methods were used to evoke reactionism via presentational art. Much like stage shows, or broadway shows, for example. Nothing looked real, but it was real and unique to that world.
Godzilla was literally "king" of those methods and "king" of those who followed suit: An entire style of Eastern special effects from other kaiju features, science fiction features, tokusatsu television, giant heroes and super sentai--Techniques still used today, even in Shin Godzilla.
In Hollywood, Godzilla is merely a pauper--A follower to the same 'ole thing we've seen for years. I agree it's interesting to see for a change and I hope it does make new fans. But honestly it feels more like a side-project in the franchise than a natural evolution--Something fun and worth exploring, but not quite the core essential of Godzilla.
I dunno, it certainly seems like a pretty well-accepted evolutionary branch as far as the vocal minority is concerned. Not everyone appreciates the fine art of tokusatsu in this day and age, but they can appreciate love put into the details.
I think Michael Dougherty has showcased just that with his direction for how to model the new batch of CGI Godzilla characters. Inspired by the old, but infused with new life that Japan just doesn't have the industry resources for. It's not the fact it's CGI, but rather that it's very well-crafted and purposeful CGI to add to the family.
Well crafted CG is fine. Purposeful works too. But it still doesn't make it the end-all, be-all evolutionary leap. I'll accept that it's certainly a different way of bringing them to life, but evolutionary implies "superior" which is just not true, especially in terms of intent. Western audiences can perceive it as they wish, but the assumption that their visual philosophy is somehow another's superior by labeling it "evolutionary" is both arrogant and incorrect.
