King of the Monsters

Godzilla (2014).

I was pleasantly surprised by this version. The 1998 abomination left a really bad taste in my mouth for any USA, big-studio remakes of Godzilla. I think it was Bryan Cranston’s performance that made me realize, early on, that this movie would be different. Very different. And I wasn’t disappointed. It’s actually one of my favorite iterations of Godzilla.

So, after seeing trailers for this one, I have very high hopes. The cinematography (at least in the trailers) looks amazing. There are some great actors in this too so, I’m just really really hopeful.

Movie Review: Godzilla (2014)

After the 1998 (American) “reboot”, I was really turned off from watching anything that wasn’t a Japanese release of the series. But, last night, I was very pleasantly surprised with Godzilla (2014). I felt that it was even one of the better films of the entire series.

Three reasons:

  1. The characters: Wow, far better acting and character development than one would expect.
  2. The story: it had one! And the way it was built was perfectly entertaining.
  3. The visuals: every shot was engrossing and kept drawing the viewer more and more into the story itself.
