    You're no fun, XO, then let's hear your explanation for the F35s just falling out of the sky? that ain't Godzilla, that's for damn sure.

    Rodan is the only possible kaiju for that, mothra doesn't exactly fly at mach 5 and engage fighter jets on a regular basis.

    Legendary only got the rights to Godzilla from Toho.

    The other Kaiju are off limits.

    Definitely a flying monster there somewhere though.

    Spoiler Free



    So that movie was pretty awesome.

    Like it was a great popcorn summer movie but I'd say it was actually a pretty good film.

    Great acting, good characters, some dumb plot points but overall I was surprised.

    I'm thinking Gareth Edwards is on his way to bring a big time director.

    What studio hands over one of their biggest assets to a pretty much nobody director?

    Then that director just crushes this one out of the park.

    I haven't had that much fun in a movie theater in a long time.

    People were cheering and clapping throughout the movie.

    There wasn't any stupid comic relief nonsense.

    The buildup was slow but the payoff was well worth it.

    The director teases you for nearly an hour. You catch glimpses of the big guy and the other monsters. You really see the events through the eyes of the main characters for the most part until the climax of the movie where the director finally pulls back and everything just goes from a 2 to a 10.

    The entire first half of the movie just builds anticipation. You know what is coming. The story and characters pretty much lay it out for you.

    Then all hell breaks lose.

    Godzilla fighting the other monsters in the middle of San Francisco was just spectacular eye candy.

    Well worth the price of admission and I went with 3D IMAX.

    3D not needed but it actually didn't take anything away from the movie as is the case most of the time.

    It added good depth to the movie and pulled you in.

    No stupid shots that were obviously put in the movie for the 3D.


    Go see it. In a theater.

    7/10 as a film

    10/10 as a brain melting awesome summer Godzilla movie.













    Slight spoiler below but it is in the trailers so not really. Probably one of my favorite scenes.

    Early in the first half of the film Godzilla finally comes ashore after only being seen in the ocean.

    The tide pulls way back like a tsunami is coming. People are all wtf.

    Suddenly massive waves crash into the coastline.

    Waves and water rush through Honolulu wiping out everything on the shoreline.

    The city loses all power and goes dark.

    The water rushes back out to sea and everything is quiet.

    People walk outside onto rooftops.

    A group of soldiers launch red flairs from a rooftop and a massive shape just moves between the buildings in silence illuminated only by the red flairs.

    A truly awesome scene.

    Then all hell breaks lose again.



    Go see it.

    Why would it be such a big thing to take him out? Would think it would be pretty simple. Could a squad of Apache helicopters not do it? Toss in some long range artillery from some Paladins. If things get bad enough fire some Tomahawk cruise missiles. Put a little shock and awe on that *****. Shouldn't be so difficult.
