A fan-trailer for Godzilla: King of the Monsters that is well worth your time.

It is wonderfully retro.

Not perfectly so, of course.  It’s done a good job of duplicating the color, style, and even the gradual decay of a film clip from the 1960s; but there are limits to what the state of the art can do.  Still, this really captures the aesthetic of what I want from Godzilla: King of the Monsters.  Will we get it? I’ll tell you opening night.

The ‘Godzilla’ Anime trailer.

Thank goodness for Netflix: they’re just going to show it on there after the Godzilla anime finishes its run in Japan.  I think that this works out for everybody: I’ll be able to watch it without too much of a hassle and they won’t have to try to get an American distribution deal going. Well, OK, obviously Netflix is making a distribution deal here, but you know what I mean. No need to try to get butts in cinema seats.

PS: Yup, I’m assuming that it’s going to be decent.  They take this intellectual property seriously in Japan, and they also take anime seriously. It has no legitimate excuse not to be at least decent, honestly.

My mini-review of Kong: Skull Island. [Technical spoiler]

Short version is: I liked it. You can go see it (I did in 3D, but it’s not required). Slightly longer version [and only spoiler, which is barely a spoiler] after the fold.

Michael Dougherty to direct Godzilla 2.

Is this good, bad, or meh? “After first being hired to run the “Godzilla” universe writing room, “Krampus” director Michael Dougherty has now been tapped to direct the next installment in the monster movie franchise as well.” I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything that he’s directed.  And I kind of want the next Godzilla to be as good as the last one.

Only… better lit this time, OK?

KONG: SKULL ISLAND.

2017, my droogies. 2017.

Then Godzilla 2. And then… yessssss… in 2020, Godzilla vs. Kong. Which will hopefully end with them squaring their differences and then teaming up to kick Evil Kaiju ass.

Movie of the Week: Godzilla.

I’m not exactly regularly reviving the feature (that is apparently an ‘enticement’ for my Patreon account, which suggests that I am not actually all that enticing): but Godzilla was great fun in theaters, and I look forward to again watching The Big Guy and the US Navy team up to go kill them some monsters.  Like you do.

Good-bye, Teen Titans – The Complete First Season (DC Comics Kids Collection).  It’s a fun show, mind you. (more…)

“Godzilla cartoon theme song.”

This is like the most Hanna-Barbera thing ever.

No link, per se, but if you’ve ever wanted the cartoon series, well…

My Godzilla review.

Hey, guess what? Hollywood actually knows how to make a proper [expletive deleted]ing Godzilla movie. Shame that they couldn’t have done that, oh, eighteen [expletive deleted]ing years ago.

Seriously: if you’ve ever called Godzilla ‘the Big Guy,’ you’ll have fun watching this.

PS: 3D is optional; IMAX is not.
