Didn't say I wanted them in this movie or its direct sequel, I just said they could work.

Oh, I understand. I just don't know if they could work. I am open to it though.

Not entirely. The Heisei-era Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla II is one of the most serious and thoughtful installments of that era. (Sure, it has Baby Godzilla, but handled far better than in the Showa era or the dismal GvMG2 sequel Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla, and used as commentary on themes of animal rights and the like.)

True. I also like the Kiyru movies of the Millennium series.

I found them rather weak. I guess they were attempting to be serious, though.

All of the Millennium series, with the exception of Final Wars, seemed to be serious...although not dark in theme.

I do agree with many ppoints in your review but I still like it.

Here is my review :

Re: Godzilla 2014: Rumors, Pix and filming

Akira Takarada and director Gareth Edwards!!!

It seems that Akira Takarada has won a part in the American Godzilla movie!!! Takarada is a veteran Godzilla actor. He has been in many Godzilla movies from the 1954 original to the 2004 movie, Final Wars and many inbetween.

He has been pitching for a role and I am very pleased that he will be in the movie!!!

That is so cool. Glad to see that they are at least showing some respect to the Japanese movies.

We could always do Mecha-Godzilla! Everyone knows of Godzilla in robot form.

Re: Godzilla 2014: Rumors, Pix and filming

That's...interesting casting of Hawkins. She's good actress and was fantastic in Happy-Go-Lucky (worth checking out if haven't seen). Should have been huge but has sort of fizzled out since then. Guess Edwards must be a fan?

As long as it doesn't look like a man in a suit, which to me has been all of them except for the first American one.
