Are you, or are you not, ready for this film? Furthermore, how does it fit into the franchise? Lastly, what are your view points, whether positive or negative, on this film, as it's about to be released?
So, you want to know about what I think about the upcomming Legendary Pictures Godzilla film?
Okay, I'll tell you. I am definitely all up for this film because Legendary Pictures specifically stated that their plans is to make this film closer in style to the original Japanese character than TriStar's iguana-like creature which is seen in the 1998 remake. How does it fit into the franchise? I don't really know what you mean by that, if you're talking about them giving the film a realistic approach, then that would be a definite yes because Godzilla, in the original 1954 film, started off as gritty and realistic, so that means that it's not being apart of Legendary Picture's trend to make every film gritty and realistic like the The Dark Knight trilogy and the upcoming Man of Steel movie. My view points are obviously positive, because not only is the film going to be more faithful to the original Godzilla, but it's also gonna be the first time I see Godzilla on the big screen because I got hooked into Godzilla because of the GameCube game "Godzilla: Destroy All Monsters Melee".
So in conclusion, I am ready for this film once it's released in theaters on May 16, 2014.
Sounds fascinating, yet daunting at the same time. As someone who knows very little about Godzilla, and has never seen any of the films or animated adaptations, would you recommend this particular film for someone in my situation? Do you think there might be things missed, or do you think a coppertop can jump right in?
Well... maybe, maybe I would recommend this film to anyone who knows very little about Godzilla. But since it's not out yet, there can only be three films I would recommend to anyone who's interested in getting hooked into this franchise, the original Godzilla film in 1954, "Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster" in 1964 and "Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah" in 1991.
And finally, there is not one thing about the Godzilla series I missed out on.
