    Ghidrah is still the best monster they ever created. I saw the original in the theatre in 1965. They always need a gang of monsters to gang up on him. No one beats Ghidrah one on one!

    Godzilla doesn't look right if he doesn't have some meat on him. This is a toy from the 2014 version that has him much skinnier in his upper half...it just looks off.

    I dunno. The new look is a little goofy to me.

    Someone's gotta take donw the Patriots a notch. Let's see how long Brady and his underinflated football stands up to Big G.

    Go on, throw some chowder at him. See how that works.

    It must be Godzilla because Boston knows the Big G sure as hell doesn't mean Green Bay.

    Very true. That's what happens when you build a franchise around one player.

    the night fighting is a drag, but I guess it hides some flaws...

    I love monster movies - saw and enjoyed the recent Kong and Godzilla movies - but this one looks a bit silly to me. It probably fits within the existing Godzilla lore but even so ... a bit silly.

    I'll probably go see it anyway because it's giant frickin' monsters, man.

    OK, the upcoming film is getting a PG-13 rating due to:

    "sequences of monster action, violence, and destruction, and for some language"

    That is awesome, I had no idea that 'monster action' is a defining feature for a PG-13 rating :D

    The soundtrack will also feature a cover of Blue Oyster Cult's 'Godzilla':

    Can’t wait for this one. I’ve liked Godzilla since I was a kid. My kids age 6 & 9, also love Godzilla. We have all the DVD’s, and we watch them quite frequently.

    I was talking to someone about this film the other day, and they were going on about the cast. No one goes to see a Godzilla movie due to the casting! Godzilla? Check. Kaiju monster villain #1? Check. Bonus Kaiju villain #2? Check. Human fodder? Check. That's all you need.

    It's a fortunate thing that they didn't have a PG-13 rating for movies on TV when we were in elementary school. we probably couldn't watch Creature Feature, Saturday afternoons.

    The Academy makes a lotta crap up just to fit a few words in the box on TV commercials and posters. The general rule is, any film that has violence gets a PG; any on-screen deaths gets a PG-13. If the deaths get very gory (close-ups of eyes punctured, tongues ripped out, heads crushed), then it gets an R. And so on. They've been vague and evasive for years as to how the rating process works and how points are accumulated, and they won't provide written reports explaining the reasons why a movie gets an R vs. a PG-13 or a PG-13 vs. a PG -- but a spokesman does have a phone call with the filmmakers to give them a verbal explanation. Every rating costs $5000; if you ask them to watch a revised version to get a new rating, it's another $5000.

    I think a PG-13 for Godzilla is about right, based on what I've seen in the trailers. I'm curious if it'll do well or not. I'm in the "hey, I've already seen this movie five times" category.

    I think you have to have a PG rating for a Godzilla movie or you won't get the kids. Kids are drawn to Godzilla like moths to a flame. Those of us who still love Kaiju in our old age are usually people who grew up with the stuff. I just saw the first Godzilla movie in this series and I liked it but it was all about the monster fights, and they seem to have understood that for this sequel. I just hope the next one isn't so GD Dark! Why film scenes where no one can see what is going on? I would think in the age of CGI it is no longer necessary to hide your flaws in the shadows.

    Also just saw Shin Godzilla - a thinking man's kaiju - a nice bookend to Ishiro Honda's original I thought.

    I was thinking about the "it's been done before thing", but then I got to thinking, your supposed to have lots of Godzilla movies, that is the fun of it!

    I'm looking forward to this one! It will be the first official summer matinee fun movie.

    GODZILLA: KING OF THE MONSTERS, is rated PG-13, just like Jurassic Park was. Most parents are not going to be that upset about a PG-13 rating in a monster movie. Today, if you want to make a good monster movie, heavy on the CGI, then you are going to need an on-screen death or two.

    What good is a monster movie if the monster doesn't eat people?

    You see exactly what I mean.

    Here comes Godzilla, stomping into town, pounding his feet, making horrible noises, breathing fire and knocking big pieces of buildings off with his tail.

    But then so what?

    If he doesn't stomp on and eat a few people, who cares?

    People are going to stop eating their lunch at sidewalk cafe's and say, "oh look!, here comes Godzilla stomping through town again".

    Then they will go back to eating their lunch...

    For those in Lis Angeles, it looks like The Egyptian theater will be showing a bunch of Toho Godzilla films the weekend before the new film’s premiere. I don’t have details yet but hoping it’s gonna he pretty cool.
