So yeah, Godzilla.
I made a little post a few months back about Godzilla and basically all I have to say about the new movie that came out is that it has to be seen on the big screen. A lot of people won’t care about it, much like I couldn’t care less about Jon Hamm finding baseball players in India, but anyone who is a fan of seeing things wrecked and destroyed will not be disappointed with this film. Oh and those that love giant monsters will love it as well.
Those of us who have been around and saw the reviews might be intrigued about the negative posts about how Godzilla is not in this film at all. I hate to be that guy that says “they don’t understand” but the fact of the matter is they do not. Especially if they say they are fans of the Big-G.
Almost every Godzilla movie has that human element in it. The small, minuscule people drive the movie. They outline why the big bad monsters are there and the truth is you don’t really see much of Godzilla in Godzilla movies.
That being said, however, there is well more than enough time dedicated to Big-G. The movie does well in teasing the audience (and if we can’t use the excuse that we’ve been teased too much in other aspects of life you can’t do it here either) to the point of the big payoff and the payoff is just that, HUGE.
I believe a lot of people who look at a film in the negative based on how characters react to a situation do not quite understand how some humans emote in the real world. Without revealing anything there is a character in the film that has to compartmentalize a lot of events that go on so that they can actually complete the goal they set out to do. People may say the character is emotionless, wooden, or just uncaring but that is not what the character wants to feel, but has to.
Long story short I say with full confidence that you must see this movie on the big screen. There is absolutely no greater feeling than feeling your own chair and body shake when you hear that magnificent roar for the first time.
As always Godzilla 2014 is owned by Legendary pictures and the Toho corporation.
