Godzilla 2014 is about the arrogance of mankind as a whole.
Godzilla 2014 is really about how little patience I have with all the moronic comments people keep filling my inbox with about this film.
Somehow by saying I’d like the film to have a broad appeal and be fun for the whole family has been translated as I want a kids film with Godzilla dancing and campy nonsense.
I’m confused by so called fans who have yet to actually watch most if not all the films that already exist - yabbering to me in messages and posts because I don’t share whatever view they may have.
I want a good film, I want a fun action packed Monster romp with destruction and monsters battling - I don’t want half assed social critiques - depressing and morose pandering and all the fallout that occurs if the film fails. I love GODZILLA but if this film flops the comics, books, toys and the current availability of such things suffers drastically.
I have said I will spend my money on this film on opening weekend - but the way it is currently being marketed - I could not take my daughter - which is sad.
Hey man I know you said that you weren't excited for the new American Godzilla movie, and neither was I, but after the new trailer...I'm actually pretty excited. I was just wondering if you saw it, and if you had, what are your thoughts?
I’m still real hesitant - The glimpses of the design we get to see I’m not loving - people seem to making a lot of the fact that they are harking back to the original - but didn’t just about every Toho film from 1984 on up do the same thing with varying degrees of success. I’m really concerned about the tone of the film - the dark nature and bleakness in these trailers just make me believe it’s not going to be accessible to kids which is sad - Godzilla as a character has to appeal to children and new audiences otherwise it can kill everything associated with it. After the 98 film it was very difficult to get any Godzilla associated products - no one wanted to carry anything with the name even if it had nothing to do with the film.Still going to see it but the hopes of bringing my daughter dwindle and that to me is very sad.
Could the Monster Man recommend some silent film era horror?
Nosferatu (1922) * Murnau The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1920) Phantom of the Opera (1925) * Chaney Unholy Three (1925) * Chaney Silent Version West of Zanzibar (1928) Chaney Not Horror But One of my favorites The Unknown (1927) Chaney Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1920) *Barrymore The Golem (There are like 3 silent ones) Some are just fragments London After Midnight (Restored Version is worth a look) Sunrise (1927)* Murnau - Not horror but if you enjoy Nosferatu worth a look Cat and the Canary (1927) Was remade a few times Their are a bunch of Méliès shorts that are great Edison’s Frankenstein (1910) I’m sure their are a bunch I’m forgetting …
