hey guys since everyone has pretty much seen the film now you all may start sharing your thoughts on the new film. :)
Thank you all for being patient. :)
**AL** : Hi guys, please check also this threads.
I just saw the film(WONDERFULL MOVIE), so should i post my thoughts now or wait for everyone else? I mean, i can wait of course, i wont blame you for wanting me too wait. But at the same time, i wouldnt post any spoilers no matter what.
Im just gonna wait for confirmation.(If anyone wants too know, it was an early 3D screening).
Well i would appreciate it if you would hold off on that until the 16th. :)
But if you want to you can, i'll trust you on the spoilers part, but really it is up to you if you want too. :)
And congratulations on seeing the early screening you lucky dog. XD
I think i'd be cool if you shared your thoughts as long as no spoilers are included.
Have you seen the classics, if so how would you rate it and how good does it stack up to the original.
Anyhow, in my opinion, I think the movie is going to be EPIC. I think it will be the best Godzilla film to date, and I havent even seen it yet.
Also, ZILLAHATER, is the movie sweet in 3D??? Because I am seeing it in IMAX...
for those who have seen the movie already through an early screening or any other way, please do not comment as of yet, let everyone else have the chance to see this movie before replying, thank you. :)
Okay, im gonna be nice-guy Zillahater(that sentence just sounds weird XD) and not post a review before May 16th. However, i will be sending a PM WITHOUT spoilers for you, Godzilla_5414 about the movie and the 3D. And anyone asking.
That seems fair.
Agreed there zillahater, thank you for understanding. :)
ill comment on whatever i want!
Send me your spoiler free thoughts man, I'm excited!
Zillahater, please send me your opinin too ;-) no spoilers please. Also tell me if 3d is worth it ;-) thanks
I got to see it earlier this week! It was super impressive and badass. Maybe I'll share more after everyone gets around to watching it...
side-by-side comparison between this Godzilla and the 1998 version:
it .... was .... AWSOME !!!!
I just saw it tonight, it was awesome! And the whole theater was clapping during both atomic breath scenes and at the end when the end credits rolled. Great film, MUCH better than the 98 film!
Well hello to everyone. :)
I have watched the new godzilla in 2-d twice already, will be going back later tonight to watch the 3-d at 7:05, and i have to say the new godzilla film was breathtaking, and purely AWESOME!!!!!!!
This new godzilla movie is defenitly in my top 10 favorites, this movie was wonderfull, shocking and just plain great. :)
Ok for everyone who has seen the movie now go ahead and let your thoughts about it fly. :)
I liked it. I felt putting Brian Cranston in 90% of the trailers was just a way to reel in the Breaking Bad fans (kinda saw through that from the start). But all in all it was good, but needed much more godzilla. The first fight scene for godzilla and a muto was through a TV screen that the kid was watching! But whatever, I take what I can get.
coulda used a little more Bryan Cranston, but no biggie. Loved the @sskicking he doled out at the end.
i was pleased with it i mean it was great mostly just what a non toho film should be
It was an amazing movie. I thought the storyline was very good. The CGI was incredible and the fight scene at the end was the best part. The acting was pretty good, Ken Watanbe was the best. Best Godzilla movie in my opinion.
"There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self." - Ernest Hemingway.
well to me this movie defenitly beat the heisei godzilla films but in my opinion the 1954 film will never be touched. :)
I have seen the film three times now and I have to say it's nothing short of an epic. Jaws, Jurassic Park, and Alien now have a new addition chiseled into a proverbial mt. rushmore of classics of classics of both cinema, and sci/fi and/or fantasy.
The shots, the angles, magnificent. The approach to use realism and the point of view of insignificant humans was fantastic: I have long been looking for a Priam Rage reboot of sorts and I love how Godzilla 2014 was able to grasp the immensity of what Godzilla would be if we saw him trampling MUTOs in real life.
The acting that wasn't done by Wantabe and Cranston was meh, but a movie can't be perfect, even my most revered films have minute flaws.
You can nitpick many things about the movie but in my humble, but wildly accurate opinion, failing to appreciate Godzilla 2014 as both an excellent reboot, and an instant classic in itself is failing to grasp both the intention of the movie, and certain aspects of film making in general that are what have made so many of the greats....great. i.e. Jaws, JP, Alien, etc, there is a reason they are being brought up, and it's not a conincidence that so many find these comparisons, and those are 3 blockbuster movies to be compared to, and what made those movies so remarkable is the same thing that Godzilla presents! How anyone can either miss that, or think it's not a good thing, just blows my mind like a Godzilla atomic breath.
All in all and as objective as I can be being a Godzilla fan, I give it a solid 9.5/10
I can't edit my last post for some reason, I meant to reference Primal Rage in the second paragraph there but forgot to edit it before I hit submit.
I liked the plot where the Muto(es) were said to be parasites consuming radioactive nutrients from within the host who was another creature like Godzilla, basically these bastards were sucking the host dry from the inside in order to grow. After they came out, they would feed on other radioactive materials. That explains why Godzilla was hunting down these Muto(es) to restore the balance; otherwise, the earth would be overrun by them.
In the Golden Gate Bridge scene, Godzilla’s back fins actually blocked some of the missiles; otherwise, the bridge would have been destroyed, and more people would have died from ‘friendly fire.” I think that the director wanted to point out more of the human’s mistakes and ignorance there too. I liked that too.
Questions: Godzilla and these Muto(es) were radioactive creatures of such sizes and scales, so wouldn’t they give off harmful radiation like crazy as they move around, and therefore, so very deadly to every human or living thing around them? Also, Godzilla’s nuclear breath was used during the battle with the Muto, again the radiation from it must be massive, but it seemed to have no effect on the main human character and others around. If the director wanted to make the movie more realistic, you would need to answer a few of these obvious technical and realistic questions to make the movie more satisfying. I am sure some other people must have thought about these questions. Your thoughts?
More Godzilla screen time and fight scenes would have earned a 9 from me on a scale of 1 to 10 for being entertaining. With that, I would even be willing to overlook some of the missing details and explanations in reality checks, and be happy! The CGI was awesome! Will definitely wait for the sequel!
Can't wait to see it again...and AGAIN!
yeah i know the dvd will be here soon..... :)
BIGBADBEN - I loved the damn movie. It is a REAL godzilla movie! Even though my friend didnt like the Design of this new godzilla reincarnation, I loved it! Its great to see him a lot more powerfull and huge! Its just amazing to see him enormous. After 10 years he is BACK!
I dont give the movie a 10/10 because I think the Bryan Cranston parts at the begining were a little unnecesary to build up MUTO as an enemy.
And I also disagree with all the idiots saying that Godzilla "didnt appear that much" duuuude they have never seen a godzilla before! The whole end battle was 100% worth it. The shots and cuts added a lot of suspense to the movie.
PLEASE LEGENDARY, don't screw up the Sequels... You are doing so great reintroducing my childhood hero to everyone again!
I agree on all accounts minus the part about Cranston, I think his part was great, my beef with the film is ATJ's lackluster performance as human lead. 9/10 easily!!! Someday THISMEINTEIL will see the light.
I Finally saw Godzilla for the secondt ime. I'm not sure if I liked it more or hated it less, but I wasn't as frustated. Maybe having seen it once, I knew what to expect. Here are a few more observations.
The CGI of Godzilla may have been the best visual effect of a creature, ever.
I didn't like the MUTOs, or their story. I would have preferred to see Godzilla, by himself, on the rampage.
The acting wasn't horrible when they were given something to do.
The music wasn't as intrusive the second time around, but it was still a little too much.
The lack of Godzilla was one of the major blunders in cinema history. 20 more minutes of Godzilla terrorizing something, and 20 less minutes of ATJ, would have meant another quarter of a billion dollars in revenue.
Gareth Edwards has potential, but he played it too cute. Hopefully he has learned from his many mistakes.
And Finally, one day someone is going to come along and make the quintessintial Godzilla movie. But they have got to be willing to break the bank in order to do it.
well guys at least it was better than most of the old godzilla films we grew up watching, the cgi was oustanding and the monster fights were awesome, however there was alot of stuff left out and i know exactly why it is because the studios knew that kids would want to watch it and they probably left that stuff out for their protection, i'll bet you all that the dvd and blu-ray director's cut if there will be one will have all of those missing links from what we saw in the theathers. :)
