Godzilla Week Day 5 Thoughts on 2014 and Future
Hello everyone on deviantart, and welcome back to Godzilla week! Today, I'm wrapping it up by giving my general thoughts on the film thus far. Not only that, but I'll also give my thoughts on the future of the franchise as a whole. I'll separate the thoughts on the 2014 film into categories like director, actors, writer ect. With the actors, I'll put them in my own thoughts about them. Let's start with the man in charge:
The Director: Gareth Edwards.
My thoughts: To be honest, this was the first time I actually heard of him, and I'm sure I'm not the only one in that. Gareth himself was actually more of a visual effects artist on small documentaries, but he did direct one big budget film, which was Monsters. I've only seen parts of it, but it seems like he was the man for the job, based on what I saw of that. He created characters that you did care about and could relate to, and it seems to be the case here. The one thing that most complained about is that despite the title, the creatur
Godzilla Week Day 4: Lost Projects
Welcome back, deviantart, to Godzilla week! With all the reviews done, I decided to move on to the films that either didn't make it or had a few script changes. Since I couldn't explain the ideas behind them and do them justice, I'll link the page to Toho Kingdom and let you read for yourself. I'll give my thoughts on whether or not it would've been a good idea. Let's start off with the original version of the 2nd film, Godzilla Raids Again:
The Volcano Monsters:
My thoughts: To be honest, I'm glad with the version we got. One of the few gripes I had is that neither monster were referred to as their name; instead they were called The Giant T-Rex and Giant Ankylosaurus. Also, Godzilla laying eggs is a bit bizarre, but I think we all know that idea did happen in 1998 in a way. So, while it's not to different from the final product, I'm actually fine with that one.
Continuation: King Kong vs. Godzilla:
Godzilla Week Day 3: Millennium films
Welcome back to Godzilla week, everyone! Today, we'er wrapping up the reviews with the final chapter (for the time being) in the Japanese Godzilla saga. But, before we do, let's take a look at the 1998 film. Before anyone calls me out on this, let me say this: Yes, it isn't a Godzilla film, but like James Rolfe, because it has the name, I feel the need to at least discuss it a bit. Let's get started with:
Plot summary: A giant, mutated monster attacks the city of New York, and a NRC scientist named Dr. Niko "Nick" Tatopoulos, along with his ex girlfriend Audrey, her cameraman Animal, an insurance agent Philippe, and two fellow scientists Dr. Elise Chapman and Dr. Mendel Craven to find a way to stop the monster's rampage, especially when it turns out to be pregnant and lays eggs in Garden Square, which is blown up not to long after they hatch, and their dad is soon killed on the Golden Gate Bridge, but one egg hatches at the end to set up the sequel that never happened.
Godzilla Week Day 2: Heisei Films
Hello, everyone, and welcome back to Godzilla week! Since I looked at the Showa frilms, today is the second part of the series: Hesiei. This list will be shorter since there's only seven films, so it hopefully won't take as long. Let's get started with the sequel to the 1954 film that started it all:
The Return of Godzilla/Godzilla 1985-1984:
Plot summary: After a volcanic eruption on Daikoku Island, reporter Goro Maki visits the destruction area, and finds a destroyed ship and finds the only remaining crew member, a young man named Hiroshi Okumura, who speculates he saw another Godzilla. He turns out to be right, as the monster returns to once again to continue his rampage. On top of this, the city also finds trouble in the form of a new sea-bound creature called Shockirus, which act like lice, but is killed in a struggle with Okumura. In the final climatic showdown with Super X, Godzilla is driven into a volcano, where it is thought he will remain there. For a while at least.
Godzilla Week Day 1: Showa Films
Hello, deviantart, and welcome to Godzilla week! This week, I'll be celebrating the release of the 2014 film. Today, to start things off, I'll be reviewing all the Showa films in the order. The way it'll be set up is that I'll put the basic plot summary, and my personal thoughts on the film itself as well as my rating. Let's get started with...
Gojira/Godzilla/Godzilla King of the Monsters-1954:
Plot summary: After the events of WWII, and the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, a giant radioactive monster called Godzilla rises from Tokyo bay and lays waste to the country of Japan. It's up to Hideto Ogata, Emiko Yamane, her father Dr. Kyohei Yamane and the brilliant eye patched Dr. Daisuke Serizawa to stop the monster's rampage for good. This leads up to Serizawa's sacrifice to kill the monster using his creation the Oxygen Destroyer.
My thoughts: What can I say? This is easily the best of all the films. Not because it's the first, but because it has everything a film needs: a good messa
New You decide: Top 10 worst Episodes. of SP/FOPHello, everyone. Since the last one, I've decided to change the rules a bit, and I thank Roasted-Torkoals for helping me come to this decision. Here are the new rules (and yes, some did stay the same):
1. Episodes can't be ones I've looked at. This was a rule that I kept for good reason. I did lists for both shows, and will be linked too. I may make an exception if you don't feel I didn't thrash the episode enough.
2. Old episodes ARE allowed. I changed this after Roasted-Torkoals made points about the episode "It's a Wishful Life", as well as watching MrEnter's review of it as when he mentioned on his top worst reviewed list. Also, Roasted-Torkoals gave me "Are You Happy Now?", so expect that one to show up when he gives a place holder for it: 1-10. That brings me to the next unchanged rule.
3: Pair the episodes up and rank them. It's a double show countdown, so I'd rather tear into both episodes on a rank at the same time.
4: Face Freeze is now allowed on this list. Although I think
