MY problem about the new godzilla version10,421 Views8 RepliesAdd A Reply
He has changed his first first appearance in 1954 as a weird mutated dinosaur-like monster, godzilla has often spread a great environmental message to the general public – but the exact make-up of the message has evolved over time.
The new monstrous nature of him has seem to have just yeeted away his anti–nuclear stance to focus more on environmental problems more presently in the public mindset, like climate change and world-wide extinction.
The 2019 Godzilla outing sets up the monster as an ancient being, evolved a long time ago when the earth was way more more radioactive. He is presented as a guardian of nature seeking to bring balance to a world absolutely messed up by human activity.
In one of the latest godzilla film , nuclear energy is natural and nuclear bombs are benign since the monster uses atomic power to energise himself in his battles against a lot of enemy monsters. The godzilla monster also enters into an alliance with the United States military to defeat their common enemies and become King of the Monsters.
Godzilla in fiction is some 65 million years old. Though, In fact, he’s only 65.
The very first Godzilla movie, was made in Japan in 1954, the monster being accidentally made by an atomic bomb test in the Pacific Ocean. The monster then came ashore to destroy Tokyo.
The message of the first Godzilla was clear, nuclear bombs and nuclear pollution are scary and monstorus, messing about with them will invite destruction upon both nature and humanity. A theme made by a nation that had recently lived through the devastating Hiroshima and Nagasaki nuclear attacks on Japan.
In summary, godzilla has often been praised by critics and fans as reflecting public concerns about environmental disaster. Yet the environmental messages that many Godzilla episodes convey is often so en***bered with competing narratives, and also by the need for fantastic spectacle, that the eco-message is confused or diminished
What do ya'll think, do you like the older one or newer one?
I have no opinion
you posted this article twice.
I thought I told you not to drown topics.
I think it’s more of an accident the site gets weird with double clicks
Honestly i can think of two of my favorite gojis which have this problem.
1) Earth, sometimes there are too many concepts at play in the trilogy
I have an article that kind of goes into this in the latest issue of Kaiju Ramen Magazine. Worth exploring as a whole if you have $6 to spare.
Actually Monsterverse Godzilla is older than 65 Million years, he is roughly 255 million years old. Meaning he was from the Permian and survived the worst mass extinction of all time, it makes the asteroid that killed off the dinosaurs 66 million years ago look minor in comparison.
