Just went and checked out the new GODZILLA flick in IMAX 3D and I gotta tell ya... as a longtime Godzilla "semi-fan"...
You have to see it! Preferably in 3D!
The scenery... or should I say... the DEPTH of scenery is visually amazing! Sometimes I got lost just looking at all the intricacies of the background and forgot about what was actually going on in the scene. Very cool when a flick can do that to you.
Also, the acting was quite respectable, even if the characters were a little "mundane" at times. I was able to stick with it and not feel like I was trudging through.
As for the Beast himself, a throwback is the best description physically, only with attitude and characteristics that bring him into present day. There are a few good "chuckle" moments with the big guy in the flick... as there should be... this GODZILLA for crying out loud!
Good stuff... you have to check it out if you're even a REMOTE fan of the legendary guy. 4 out of 5!
I dunno...part of the fun about Gozilla was the shitey costumes and even worse enemies...I mean a huge moth??? Brilliance! I would have died laughing if Godzilla had smashed it flat with a huge rolled up news paper! Or confused it with a huge lightbulb!
anyway, I might still go.
but I am sodding lazy!
I loved the old ones as a kid, never saw any of the remakes. From the previews, I wasn't planning on seeing it. These days I don't have time so might see it when it comes out on Netflix
saw this yesterday, my inner 9 year old was in its glory~!
I want to watch this again... today.... but on my TV with my sound system. Can't wait for Blu!

As a long time fan of Godzilla, I just think there should of been way more Zilla in godzilla, For the first hour I forgot I was watching a Monster Movie, The Build up, just took way to long, They finally get to the monster fight, and really??? Disappointing and anti climatic imho. Godzilla always took a butt kicking, and just when you thought Godzilla was down for the count, well He pulled a Hulk Hogan, and Opened a big can of Whoop ass. They spent WAY to much time on the some guy trying to get home, Not near enough time of Ol Godzilla doing what he does best.
What really really bummed me out the most, No group of people running from it, only to have one trip and fall. It was SO bad, I left 15 or 20 min before it ended. Cause in my ending, I wanted Godzilla to take out that Guy they spent so much time showing him trying to get home to his wife.....
the place I went they serve brewskis and food! I had a couple of Sam Adams and some killer natchos
