If they can make the suit look super realistic than ever before than I would much prefer a suit.

Dont know if Toho is really in to CGI stuff, cuz in the Millenium series, through out those few time when Godzilla was in CGI in water, they looked absolutely terrible.

Something Real

KAIJUJIRA - I would greatly enjoy seeing a new, hyper-realistic suit! It would have weight and presence that CGI (in my opinion) can not portray! I'm so very excited for this upcoming film! :)

Feeling like a broken record here. With the exception of the original film perhaps, the point of the visuals in Toho's Godzilla films was not realistic presentation. It was stylistic representation.

The best comparison I can give is stage theater. When audiences see an on stage production of The Lion King, the characters playing the lions don't look like lions. They look like staged representations of the lion characters they're occupying. Toku comes from a similar school of thought. It's a very Eastern way of thinking and most Western fans just can't wrap their heads around it because we think everything has to be portrayed realistically.

Therefore I don't want a Japanese CG Godzilla. I don't want the new Godzilla suit to look so hyper realistic that it's infallable. I want it to look Japanese. To paraphrase August Ragone: We fell in love with these movies because of their Japanese-ness. Why take that away to inject realism? There's enough "realistic" movies to watch in the world. Let Godzilla be Godzilla.

I don't know. On one had their is the suit and Toho has done some great things with the Godzilla suit. On the other their is CGI which would allow for a greater range of motion for Godzilla. I just don't know. But whatever Toho decides to go with is good for me.

Let Legendary be Realistic, let Toho be Un-realistic.

Good grief.

Suit. Nuff said.


Mothra LarvaeMember0 XPDec-08-2014 9:38 AM

i wouldnt mind a mix of both. suits for normal scenes and cgi for more complex ones

I think more CGI will be used, by far, but for mroe complex things. Absolutely. A mixture of both is perfectly fine. But I'd like it to overall stay traditional.

Outsides of scenes where it would be extremely inconvenient to do with a suit I'd like it suit. From what I've seen of Toho's CGI it's not that great especially with it following up the $100 million budget for the CGI in the Legendary Godzilla. So don't try to copy legendary do what Toho does best and make awesome suit movies that have good enough plot and characters that I don't care how obvious it is the Godzilla's a guy in a suit.

I agree with what @GMan2887 said.

Yep. Traditional all the way! Hopefully it can meet the quality of like Gamera 3 the revenge of irys.

Suitmation for the Win!!!

Suitimation. Not just because I love it and practical effects in general, but because a Japanese CGI Godzilla movie would, to put it bluntly, look like crap. It would be seen as little more than an officially licensed cheap imitator of the American Godzilla by general audiences. If it pushes the envelope of tokusatu like Gamera: GOTU did, it will have a chance, however slim, of being respected even by U.S. audiences.


Mothra LarvaeMember0 XPDec-09-2014 7:38 PM

I want to see a suit, because, well, suit.

Also, sorry Gman, didn't look back far enough in the threads I guess, I apologize

i think that toho should use a suit instead of CGI. its worked well so far and i hope they carry on with doing the same.
