    I don't understand clicking on a just released movie thread and expecting everything to be tagged with spoilers.

    I enjoyed the movie, I was happy that Godzilla had some great well lit scenes, one aspect that bugged me on Pacific Rim were the monsters always being difficult to make out.


    I don't do signatures. Blondes, brunettes, and red heads are a different story.

    Am I alone in thinking they can just cut the dude's family out of the movie, who really needs the Mommy Mommy scene at the end?

    The Japanese scientist acting was terrible. Walking around in shock the whole movie. I thought it was alright overall. Action moments were great though.

    Why. It is a remake of a remake of a remake.

    I thought generic-but-heroic white people (a Navy vet with combat experience in the Middle East, a dedicated nurse, an adorable child, an ideal family and home life despite him seeing combat and a long separation, etc.) wasn't the best way to try to personify the themes of the film.

    The original Godzilla nailed it in this regard--young Japanese people unable to express emotion or love clearly even in private (to go with the overall cover-up of the monster), the elderly scientist not wanting to destroy the beast despite its danger for the sake of "pure science," respect for nature, and finding a way to figure out its resistance to radioactivity, and the other one with the whole Oppenheimer/Malcolm "just because you can doesn't mean you should" about the oxygen destroyer maybe being able to stop Godzilla/nuclear weapons but, after it becomes a weapon in its own right, the disease being worse than the cure.

    Sympathetic-but-superficial with no real ties into the themes of the presentation don't help any film.

    Re: Godzilla

    The movie was awesome. Definitely got rid of the Matthew Broderick abomination Godzilla from years past. Well worth going to see.
