Re: Godzilla 2014, eh, the human plot was dumb dumb dumb, but the monster plot was pretty great.

I'm always fascinated by all the films that Toho ALMOST made with Kaiju. Like, how in the early stages of Godzilla Vs Space Godzilla, it was instead Godzilla vs Bagan, to the point where Toho Studios has a fully built Bagan suit sitting on display, and the Super Nintendo Godzilla game that came out around then still has Bagan as the final baddie.

And Godzilla's final form was basically space Godzilla with tusks and poo poo instead of crystals. I played that game a ton even though it was really bad.

E: Anyway the new movie looks loving awesome. All the tank and anti-air missile shots were straight out of evangelion for loving sure. Anno is going to go crazy on this one.

You know Godzilla movies had those kinds of shots decades before Evangelion right?

The allusions don't necessarily need to be instant killers. Pollution doesn't instantly kill people, but that doesn't make it less dangerous.

...if Hedorah was eating pollution, why was it necessary to kill him again?

He was spreading it everywhere.

Yeah, I hosed up by making it sound like I was badmouthing Harryhausen. He's great but his monsters generally don't have that classic kaiju eiga feel to 'em and I submit that this doesn't either:



Ultraman I will not defend. Loved that poo poo as a kid, but try to tell me with a straight face that all those Ultra monsters aren't silly as hell.

You could have at least posted the model of the actual creature.

Megalon and Gigan's friendship is really fun. Also, that Ghidorah probably doesn't like him, but gently caress, he just can't stand by and watch Big G whoop his rear end. Gigan's like his well meaning loser cousin.

Now I'm imagining them as polack dock workers in Baltimore.

The plot on this one is a doozy. It's about humanity having fled the Earth in ark ships after losing a 50 year war against Kaiju, now returning to try and retake a world that's been ruled by Godzilla for 20,000 years.

You say this after explaining away the meaning of words. Mothra absolutely means big moth because shes a giant loving moth. It can be a character name too and your false dichotomy is really dumb.

Yes. Mothra is more or less like a moth or a butterfly, containing features of both, but is neither.

More importantly, "Mothra" still does not mean "big moth." This is still something you just made up.

Mothra is still a giant moth, just like Godzilla is a giant dinosaur. You're acting like this is some taxonomic thing. It isn't. The character Mothra is a giant moth, her name literally means big moth, Anguirus is based on the ankylosaurus in name and design, Ebirah is a giant crustacean because Ebirah means giant shrimp, Hedorah means sludge or something so that's what the smog monster is named. These are established patterns that you're desperately trying to disregard to fit your arbitrary naming scheme. It's sad.
