New Godzilla movie

Discussion in 'Gaming & Media' started by Trip in the Head, May 8, 2014.

  1. Why does the "Asian" version of the movie preview make the movie look SO much better? Not once have I seen a preview that shows the movie is Godzilla vs another monster (Mothra maybe?). Why have they been holding that info back in the US? Or is it just me that hadn't seen it? This tid bit of info makes me want to see the movie a little more now.

    Asia:


    Regular:


    See the difference? I guess there was a couple of shots of the new monster in the regular one, but they don't make it as obvious as in the Asian version. Why? Don't know about you guys, but I am so much more pumped to see a Godzilla vs another monster movie instead of just Godzilla running amok like the last time.

    And no more shitty ass P.Diddy remakes of good Led Zeppelin songs PLEASE
     
  2. Okay so I saw it this morning...
    I WAS NOT IMPRESSED howeverrr!! and a big however that is..
    It was entertaining; there were just too many things I could've altered to make it that much better.

    My review without spoiling much:
    Show Spoiler
    Was not a fan of the antagonists by any means; What they did with Bryan Cranston's character was almost insulting after how he was portrayed in the trailers; Aaron Taylor Johnson aka Kickass/Quicksilver blah blah was just not good enough to carry the last majority parts of that movie (2/3rds roughly). Could've used a few more easter eggs


    All I gotta say is I'm thankful for the way they ended it as opposed to the way the 1998 Matthew Broderick Version ended; they did it right.

    Spoiler of the Ending Status of Godzilla himself and some other thoughts that contain some spoilers:
    Show Spoiler
    At the end Godzilla wakes up from near death and rises and walks to the sea to go back under, all while being hailed as a hero from the population.. this I HOPE will set up future Godzilla movies and with the easter egg of "MOTHRA" being a label on a empty bug tank I hope he comes in.. Granted most people are fooled by the looks of the two MUTOs in this movie that they think the flying one is Mothra but it's not intended to be.

  6. I wasn't really impressed either... for some reason I experienced no emotional changes throughout the entire film... I was just watching it. I didn't feel any tenseness, any fear, no laughing, no elation.... it just did nothing for me on an emotional level... but if you want to sit in a theater for 2 hours, watch a bunch of stuff explode, and see some pretty good CGI... then this movie is for you.
     
  7. Oh, one more thing.... Elizabeth Olsen is absolutely gorgeous and I can't wait to see her as Scarlet Witch.
     
  8. :yes:
     
  9. Well from the reviews glad I skipped out and sat in the glorious sun on Sunday. Phew.
     
  10. If you can manage to get a cheap ticket or find a solid link to it I totally recommend it simply for CG aspects and the potential for the sequel that's apparently in the works at the moment to be epic.
     
  11. I wouldn't wipe my ass with the 1998 version. Still, would like to see this one. Probally might just get a link in a couple of days instead of going to the movies.
     
  12. They won't miss out on your one ticket :p they already made $93.2 million the first weekend so I mean it won't hurt them if you and others felt like streaming it, I'm sure there are die-hard Godzilla fans out there that will see the movie multiple times to cover you haha.
     
  13. I don't give a shit about big time movie money, especially if they're working off the character Godzilla. They'll get their money, if it was a small time movie company, then I would pay for it.
     
  14. That's all that matters nowadays.
     
  15. I agree, the plot of the movie "Idiocracy" is becoming more and more feasible with every passing day.

  16. But Godzilla from '98 is one of the worst movies ever made. I agree about #1 and #5, but they mean jack shit when it's all said and done.

    Can't wait for the sequel.
