Re: Shin Gojira (a.k.a. Godzilla Resurgence)

Is anyone willing/able to read Japanese? I have an interview from Anno about this film that needs translating.

Re: Ghostbusters (2020)

Leslie Jones isn't happy about her movie getting ignored. But it shouldn't be too surprising. The movie was a toxic flop and the merchandise sold poorly. Even Dan Aykroyd was open about his displeasure with Feig and the final product.

Ghostbusters (2020)

Sony is taking another shot at Ghostbusters. Jason Reitman (the son of Ivan Reitman, director of the original 1984 film) will helm a sequel to the original films which is set to release in 2020. Check out the teaser trailer.

What are your thoughts?

Re: Godzilla & Kaiju General!

The Planet Eater dropped on Netflix today. The Planet Eater reminded me a bit of The End of Evangelion as you have an extended sequence dedicated to the inner struggle of the protagonist and Metphies attempting something reminiscent of human instrumentality. I liked the themes it raises and it manag...

Box Office and Attendance

Does anyone know how many tickets these films sold? I'm only able to find the attendance for opening weekends and total grosses ($18.8 million, $43 million, and $66.4 million). I would like to get a better idea about they performed. Gross isn't a very reliable means to compare the success of films r...

Re: Godzilla & Kaiju General!

I'm not sure what this says about me as a fan, though I not mind Godzilla's depiction in these movies and I'm okay with being indifferent towards Godzilla if that Godzilla exists in an interesting film. And as a work of serious science-fiction, which is what most recent Godzilla films fall under, Ci...

Re: Godzilla & Kaiju General!

I'd completely agree that the first film is disposable and does little more than hurt the trilogy. What value it has could easily be removed and used to supplement its sequel. But the second movie really works for me and I tend to view it as its own thing. The relevant characters are fleshed out, th...

Re: SSSS Gridman - Studio Trigger (2018)

SSSS Gridman was the second best kaiju/tokusatsu feature of the decade. Shin Godzilla in first place of course.

Re: Last Movie You Watched

James Wan's Aquaman. Visually, it's one of the more interesting live-action comic book films as its bright and varied color palette was a nice treat. Highlights include the fight in Italy and the dive into the trench. A nice change of pace from the dull or dark color schemes of the average MCU or DC...

Re: Godzilla & Kaiju General!

What's with the negativity towards the anime movies? Yeah, the first one is forgettable. Though it's harmless and nothing worse than what a Godzilla film generally delivers besides a reduced focus on the monsters. City on the Edge of Battle was an immense improvement over the first film and one of m...

Not sure if I'm putting this in the right place, though this thread seems appropriate. Here's a review I made for Shin Godzilla. I'd love to hear what you guys think.

Re: Shin Gojira (a.k.a. Godzilla Resurgence)

Having seen it twice and given it a little thought, I consider Shin Godzilla to be my second favorite film in the Godzilla series. It's behind only Ishiro Honda's Gojira (I also have endless affection for Godzilla: King of the Monsters ). Anno truly delivered with his latest picture, outclassing God...

Mr. Plinkett's The Star Wars Awakens Review (That's the actual title, don't shoot the messenger) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=miVRaoR_8xQ Don't know how many people care about this. Pretty interesting video, though. As you might expect, it's a bit different from Plinkett's other Star Wars review...

Re: Shin Gojira (a.k.a. Godzilla Resurgence)

I never understood the love for Return of Godzilla or its American edit. Felt like Gojira (1954) with a less interesting human element and most of the tension/emotion excised. Always came across as dull and uninspired to me. Although I'll give it credit for its atmosphere and score. Anyway, other th...

Re: Anno is writing and directing a Godzilla movie

Judging from the provided summary, as far as I can tell, it's nothing to write home about. It's pretty much generic social commentray disguised as a movie, with some "Evangelion creepyness" shoehorned there as if it was necessary. It may be good as a reimagining of original Godzilla, but ...

Re: Anno is writing and directing a Godzilla movie

It appears the rumors were indeed true. 2ch had it right back in Spring. I wonder why Ragone backtracked like that. Shin Gojira was number one at Japanese box office this weekend. And apparently the film has been received well, if a few professional Japanese reviews and audience twitter comments are...

Re: Anno is writing and directing a Godzilla movie

For a foreign production with much less money at its disposal than Hollywood, the visual effects look fairly impressive thus far. Compare similar shots where G14 isn't obscured by darkness or some other environmental factor. http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/ag446/noanova2/243998308223_zpsotnf4bli...

Re: Anno is writing and directing a Godzilla movie

For what it's worth, my film and world language/literature professor found Godzilla vs Hedorah very enjoyable. She liked it much more than Godzilla (2014). And she helped me notice some similarities that exist between it and Gojira (1954). Hedorah is the product of rampant pollution (replacing war a...

Re: Anno is writing and directing a Godzilla movie

Here's what I've noticed about all of the previews thus far: Godzilla isn't really doing anything. He's just walking around, not fighting, not wrecking, not showing any real emotion, nothing. I think it's a deliberate choice inspired by Gojira (1954). Anno has cited it as being a major source of in...
