OH HELL YEAH
So, Legendary Pictures was at the San Diego Comic Con. They were promoting a lot of upcoming movies. Guess what one of the promo images was.
I think I might cry. It's just that beautiful.
Now, obviously this is highly stylized and I have no idea if it accurately reflects the design Legendary Pictures is working with, but it is too awesome not to share.
Even better is that they had the shirt on a t-shirt that apparently reacts with webcams...somehow, to produce an awesome effect of Godzilla firing his flame breath and roaring. Here's a video:
I think it's safe to say Godzilla is in good hands. Current Mood: HELL YEAH

It Ain't No Damn Iguana
Yesterday I was just randomly browsing the internet when I stumbled across something that immediately caught my attention.
It's quite possibly bogus, but supposedly what you are about to see is a maquette of the proposed design for Legendary Pictures Godzilla 2012
project, built to be shown to Toho for approval.
For all I know this is just some modelmaker's pet project, but I would dearly love to believe it's real. It looks a bit like the Godzilla 2000
and Godzilla, Mothra, and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All Out Attack
designs got thrown in a blender with a splash of Nightmare Gamera
thrown in, and seasoned with some dragon and wolf for flavor.
In short, it looks awesome and
it looks like Godzilla. So, Legendary Pictures, if you're reading this: If this is not
one of your proposed designs, then I hope you're at least thinking along similar lines. Current Mood: HELL YEAH

Good News Everyone!
A while back I heard a rumor. A rumor that made me happy, but it was only a rumor. Well, now it seems that that rumor has been confirmed:Legendary Pictures has acquired the rights to make a new American Godzilla movie.Translation: "FUCK YEAH!"
The film is apparently set for a 2012 release, though no director, screenwriter, or cast has yet been announced. Really, I have no idea what to even expect. Nor do I even have any advice to the filmmakers other than the obvious:DON'T DO THIS! Current Mood: excited

Godzilla fandom help
is looking for a little help in improving its article about the history of the Godzilla fandom
. The article's timeline
is a bit too heavy with LiveJournal and wiki information. It lacks everywhere else. It needs some one to come in who knows more about the fandom to fill in and add dates, events that mattered, etc.Fan History
is trying to create a directory of Godzilla fans
. There are currently 138 articles. It would be nice to see those articles improved and new articles added about people in the fandom. With some fragmentation across fandoms because of the increase in the number of web and off-line choices, the directory can help consolidate that information in one place.

The Monsters Are In Revolt!
Well, I subjected myself to the Japanese version of All Monsters Attack
(aka Godzilla's Revenge
) that Classic Media was nice enough to put out.
Well, the DVD is quite good. The quality of the film is great; even the stock footage looks crisp and clear. The sound is good and the subtitles are pretty well done, aside from the rather amusing introduction of "Gorozaurus."
The movie itself is...um...
Well, it's still better than Godzilla vs. Megalon
, but then so is being bitten by an angry mongoose.
At least it can't be said that the film tricks you into thinking it will be good, because the credits sequence is accompanied by a pop song. An awful pop song. I don't mean a goofy, so bad it's good J-Pop song.
I mean a shrieking, screeching voice singing--no, shouting
mind-numbing lyrics like "Mi Mi Minilla! Poo Poo Poo!"I mean it will make your ears bleed
I think this song could cause cancer in rats.
And for those who were wondering if the Japanese version makes it any clearer as to whether or not in this film's reality there really is a Godzilla, or if he's just a movie monster...no, it friggin' does not.
Although it does suggest that in Japan, adults worship God while children worship monsters. Apparently we weren't shown the scenes of Ichiro worshiping Cthulhu.
There are some amusing differences between this version and the English version. For one thing, Ichiro swears a lot more. Not Tarantino-type swearing, mind you, but still. I also enjoyed his internal monologues, the best being, "Bad man fall through the floor! Bad man fall through the floor! Bad man fall through the floor!"
The other thing is that whereas the English version gives Minilla a silly male voice that sounds like Bullwinkle, the Japanese version gives him a feminine voice that sounds more like Rocky. And, for some damn reason, the voice is muffled. This makes it seem as if the voice is coming from the person in the suit. Which is stupid.
On the plus side, this voice means we are denied such idiotic lines as, "Take that, weirdo!" However, it makes Ichiro's relationship with Minilla a lot creepier
. Why? Because when I say a feminine voice, I don't mean Nancy Cartwright as Bart Simpson feminine. I mean, sexy Japanese woman feminine. The, uh, grunting
noises she makes at certain points don't help any.
Between the new, sexy female Minilla and the kindly neighbor who is creepy as hell, I wonder that any parents in Japan ever showed this to their kids.
Then again, I really shouldn't be surprised.
And yes, this film still has an awful moral wherein Ichiro beats up the bully and then still does what the bully wanted him to do anyways, which results in an innocent stranger getting hurt. It'd be like an After school Special where the plucky teen hero just says no to drugs, gets the drug dealer arrested...and then ends the show by smokin' down a big fattie.
Though I'm still convinced that the makers of Home Alone
saw this film. Hell, just substitute a giant monster film for that gangster film Kevin watches and Toho could sue for plagiarism.
I have to ask, though; why is it that everybody hates Gabara so much? He's a giant, electrified ogre that warbles--how can you not love that? He's pretty damned creepy, in his own way--I'm also pretty sure his design was inspired by the fire demon from Night of the Demon
(aka Curse of the Demon
). Not to mention clearly sadistic enough to pick on a baby monster, while also having the cajones
to try and take on Godzilla.
Sure, he gets the crap kicked out of him, forced to limp away in humiliation as Ichiro teasingly cries, "Gabara the Cripple! Gabara the Cripple!" But he shot for the moon, and he burned up on re-entry.
He could still kick Jet Jaguar's ass. Current Mood: amused

kinda came to me over lunch
Y'know, Godzilla was initially the 1st of his kind. Not having anything else like him around there's likely a lot that it sorta had to pick up along the way without having been educated otherwise. Largely only living underwater it probably never conceived of what was above until he poked his head out of the water in Japan.
Lots of little creatures that looked a lot like him with odd coverings and really really tiny.
Personally, I'd like to think the Big Guy didn't pop up just to say "Hi".
Maybe he was lost.
It's tricky getting around underwater without a map or road signs. Only having the fish around him, reknown for not being the wittiest of conversationalists, upon peeking out of the water and seeing much smaller, tailess, versions of himself, I suspect Godzilla came to land to ask where he was and what was the best way to go wherever it was he was going.
Human nature, lovely thing that it is, the people of Japan didn't do the sensible thing and help this guy out. No! Instead, they started launching a bunch of missles and lazers and other less than pleasant things at Godzilla.
All of this conflict, years upon decades upon (you get the idea) could've been avoided with just a little common courtesy. Current Mood: thoughtful

Godzilla's metal twin returns for the ultimate revenge!
When Classic Media first announced the release of several remastered Godzilla DVDs, each with the original and uncut Japanese versions included, I was probably most excited by Gojira
--but I was just as excited about Terror of Mechagodzilla
. After all, the only version available of the film in the U.S. for years has been a horribly butchered cut. And, of course, the original Japanese version has been something of legend because it contains "nudity."
Well, about a week or two ago I finally got my copy of Classic Media's DVD of Terror of Mechagodzilla
(and All Monster's Attack
as well, but I haven't brought myself to watch it just yet). Now I have finally seen the Japanese version, and it is indeed worth the price of the DVD.
Which is not to say the film is perfect, but at least seeing it uncut allows for a better chance to judge the film on its own merits.
And those merits of course include a set of patently rubber breasts during the Katsura operation scene. Yes, that's the infamous "nudity" you've heard so much about, assuming you didn't already know that. At least it's not as gratuitous as Yuki's ass in Godzilla vs. Space Godzilla
.( Bring on the rubber breasts and Kenny stomping!Collapse ) Current Mood: pleased
