I finally saw it this week. It was not a bad movie, but is wasn't great.
To be clear, it's light-years beyond that piece of shit Matthew Broderick version.
Seriously, fuck the 1998 Godzilla film with a sandpaper dildo.
The biggest draw back to this 2014 Godzilla flick is that the human characters are boring, shallow, one dimensional and 3/4ths of the movie is spent on them.
Their plight is the foreground and Godzilla is the background.
It's a total waste of time to "develop" these characters throughout the film because
no one gives a shit about them. Bryan Cranston is an amazing actor, but he is dialed up to 11 in this movie. Every scene he is yelling or giving some emotional (and very contrived) speech that just comes off as melodramatic.
Elizabeth Olsen is an incredible actress but she never gets a chance to shine here.
Her character is a typical Hollywood Cliche - "The Worrying Wife."
Always on the verge of tears wondering if her husband is OK.
I don't blame Gareth Edwards the director. I blame the assholes who wrote the script:
Max Borenstein & Dave Callaham
Now, with all the ranting about the negative, let me focus on what was good.
Edwards does an amazing job directing. The scenes are well crafted and well shot.
The Monster Fights are EPIC. And there are 3 Monsters:
Godzilla and 2 MUTOs (Massive Unidentified Terrestrial Organisms).
The MUTOs feel evil and creepy, especially the first one.
Godzilla himself looks and sounds amazing. They hit a home run with that.
The visuals are incredible, the special effects are mind blowing.
And that HALO jump scene set to "Jupiter and Beyond"....DAMN.
It literally gave me goosebumps.
I'll buy it when it comes out on Blu Ray for sure.
The best way to sum it up:
It's like a big family meal that you've been really looking forward to.
Its a good time but you're still hungry because the portions were really small.
I'd give it 6.5 out of 10.
Now, check out this new video/track from Mike Relm:

OK, first up, you've got to check out this video. I am not sure if these kids
are YouTube Trolls or just plain dumb. Either way, the first minute and 30 seconds of this video are painfully funny to watch:
People online have been debating who would win in a fight between Superman and Goku for a long time. Well, this video tries to answer that question.
