Cool story bro
Way OT: Godzilla
That is possibly the most disturbing thing that I've seen on this site.
I've read more disturbing things than this.
Nah, I've seen avatars more disturbing than that.
Your avatar on the other hand is not disturbing at all and in fact quite familiar.
Come on, it's a forum and it's ot season. I, personally, would love to see a topic in Godzilla as opposed to a MSU, or OSU thread.
I'm waiting for the movie on the college football blog editor who starts dating the daughter of the home team offensive coordinator he despises.
and how about another new Spider-Man or batman? What's it been now, like 6 months?
(Embedding doesn't work, which really hampers my comment)
Godzilla ain't got shit on King Kong.
I didn't even know there was a new one but I bet it's horrible. Neg away.
The world is dark and foreboding as you awaken each day isn't it...
Trailer looked pretty good - actually has a compelling actor in it unlike Matthew Broderick
That new movie "Neighbors" is really funny if anyone is debating seeing it.
Some of you are probably old enough, like me, to remember the 4 'O clock movie on WXYZ, CH7. Every spring they would have monster week during the late 60's and early 70s. I remember getting off the school bus in 2nd through 5th grade and racing into the house to watch Monster Week. Every day of the week they would show one of the classic Godzilla movies Monday through Friday. Besides listening and watching Michigan football as a child, this was my second favorite time of the year! My favorite was GZ vs Mothra, it was so freaky with those miniature Japanese women singing to Mothera and that giant caterpillar, Also Ghidora, the 3 headed monster was a favorite.
Well, I have not seen any of these movies in 40 years, so I may go see the new Godzilla flick!
That's what I was trying to say above. Thank you for reminding me which station. I haven't lived in Michigan for thirty years now and I couldn't recall which station had the 4 I' clock movie.
One of the reasons that Monster Week was such a hit among kids in the Metro-Detroit area is that it was such a welcome break from the other films that were featured by Bill Kennedy on his weekday-afternoon movie feature called "Bill Kennedy at the Movies". If you recall, Bill would spend 51 weeks of the year showing black-and-white not-so-classic films from Hollywood's Bronze Age. One week out of the year, he would nod to Toho. During an era when kids did not have 560 channels to choose from, 324 of which have children's programming, a week of Mothra and Gamara was welcome indeed.
I did like watching CH.50 WKBD. They would show the older Japanese cartoons like Speed Racer and Kimba the White Lion. They would also have the little rascals and three stooges. I guess now those shows are to violent for kids. Sometimes when my Father was off work we would watch Bonanza and the 4 o'clock movie. The only time I would watch was during Monster week!
Plus most of Michigan's games were not televised. If they played a top 20 team in the preseason you may be lucky to get to see Missouri or TAM vs Michigan on Saturday. Otherwise, you had to wait til the end of the season for the OSU vs Michigan game and then the Rosebowl when they won the Big 10.
whether I should see the new Godzilla movie. Sounds like I should go see it. Bryan Cranston is in it, and he's a damn good actor.
Without spoiling too much of the movie, just letting you know not to see it because of Cranston. His role is finished about 25 minutes in
I kind of wondered if maybe they were using his big name to help promote the movie, like movies often do with stars. Often times they don't end up playing a very prominent role.
Yeah, that was disappointing. He was so prominent in the trailers, and he's a much better actor than whoever plays his son.
Perhaps sadly, my first experiences with the Godzilla films were the ruthless mocking the original ones received on MST3K back in the early 1990s. I know they did "Godzilla Vs. Megalon", "Godzilla Vs. Sea Monster" plus a few others - it was a substantial portion of the second season, as I recall.
That being said, the effects in the trailer look pretty cool and I might be tempted to put this one on the Memorial Day weekend to-do list.
Those two r the only two Godzilla movies ever taken on by MST3k. U may be confusing the Gamera flicks they did five of those. All r hilarious, not sure why u would dislike those. I grew up watching the Godzilla and Gamera movies On Monster week on the 4 o' clock movie, whichever station used to carry that in the D.
I was more referring to the awkward introduction to Godzilla because that was my first exposure to the films. The episodes of MST3K that deal with them are hilarious - come to think of it, the Joel era is perhaps the better era when it comes to overall consistency, I think, although many of the episodes in the early days of Mike (seasons 5 and 6 in particular, although the first season on Sci-Fi - 8, I think - had tons of hilarious episodes as well) were just as good.
My favorite was The Final Sacrifice. It's on Netflix if you want to watch Rowsdower save the world (and Larry Csonka).
Space Mutiny has always been my favorite. Santa Claus, Pat Riley, a love interest that looks twice the age of the main character, Beef Slamchest, etc. Space Mutiny has it all.
Misty's on here life is good. Teenagers from Outer Space is my fav. but I love so many episodes, both Joel and Mike eras.
He was the SHEEIT!
The original TMNT, they should do a movie about him too...
But I liked the Matthew Broderick Godzilla. This one looks incredible too. Then again, I lived for monster week on ABC.
Oh and for the person above asking about the other movies:
Spiderman - Great movie
Captain America - Much better than the first one
Lego Movie - Cool
Divergent - Excellent movie
300 Part 2 - Just like the first one but with an extra hot chick. Meaning awesome.
that Saban is recruiting Godzilla as a Nose Tackle. Hoke tried but he didn't meet the admissions standards.
Rumor is King Kong turned down a Corvette to play at WVU.
Nick or Haim?
Probably the 12.1 percent body fat that gets added for just being an American.
By a DoD weapons expert:
So I read Tom Long's "criticism" of this movie in the Detroit News and it reminded me, as if I needed reminding, why everything he says should be ignored. According to him, the characters are boring. IT'S FUCKING GODZILLA I'M NOT WATCHING IT FOR DEEP AND INTROSPECTIVE CHARACTERS.
That might be true, but Godzilla is only in the movie for like 30 minutes maybe. And that's stretching it quite a bit.
There's a lot of shots of him swimming underwater though!
When I first read your post, I thought you said there were a lot of scenes of Godzilla swimming in his underwear. Then I thought, I must have Kate Upton on my mind. THEN I thought, well if Godzilla did wear underwear, what kind would he wear, boxers or briefs?
"Without giving too much away," Im going to give away the entire movie.
I could do that if you'd like
Just trying to save people 10+ bucks, if you're going to see the movie for Bryan Cranston or for tons of Godzilla fighting, you're gonna be disappointed
Having seen it tonight, I concur. It doesn't give away the movie to say there's not that much of Godzilla. And yes, you almost surely watch him swimming underwater more than you watch him fight.
is the fattest one ever, wouldn't he be floating rather than swimming?
somehow this reminded me of Tom Crean .....
It's getting some pretty solid reviews.
It was freaking amazing. There might not be a better movie to see on opening night (at least that I've been to in my life); there are a few awesome crowd-pleasing moments that are really fun to see with a crowd that's "into it"...lots of cheering at the theater I was at last night.
