This Godzilla #caturday video almost seems unfair.

I mean, sure, major motion picture studios can get in on the fun. But they have certain structural advantages no actually I’m just going to shut up, now. This Godzilla cat video is great. This is what they should be spending the extra budget on. ALL movies should spend a little extra budget on cat videos based on their films:

Got turned onto this from somebody in my Secret World Legends cabal.

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.

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?

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. Continue reading Movie of the Week: Godzilla.
