Re: Godzilla 2014: Rumors, Pix and filming

This is about as frightening he has looked in years. The hand puppet of the original was pure monster. My favorite Godzila was from the battle with King Kong.

I am also glad they didn't go with the T-Rex head. That might be good for a future opponent. Large head, smaller arms, etc.

If only Harryhausen and the folks at Toho had shaped evolution. But no--we get dinos with feathers. The Moon look as cragged as Chesley Bonestell thought...

I've never gotten the objections to dinosaurs having feathers. I don't think that makes dinosaurs less impressive -- I think it makes birds scarier.

Heh, heh! You've reminded me of a situation a friend experienced. In addition to being a co-worker in IT, he was for several years a voluntary fire chief. As such, he dealt with numerous "roadside incidents". Normally they were car wrecks, but one time, he got a call about a bird causing a traffic hazard...an emu!

He easily found the the animal where it was last seen, so he managed to "shoo" the bird off the road until animal control or the owners, regional emu ranchers, had the opportunity to arrive. The bird walked around the edge of a large creek as my friend kept an watchful eye.

It was then he noticed the tracks the emu left in the mud. "Argh! That thing is a dinosaur!" Sure enough the imprint closely resembled that of predatory therapods. It also dawned upon him that dinosaur or not, the claws on that creature could easily disembowel him if suitably threatened. He kept his hand close to his sidearm until the owners finally arrived to claim the bird.

Sincerely,

Bill

That's a good way to teach evolution too.

At 120 meters that is 393 feet...just shy of 400 feet. think that is pushing it!
Why not? In the American version of the original Godzilla he was said to be over 400ft tall, though indeed he was shown, as the Japanese version stated, at around 150ft. A TRUE 400-foot Godzilla would be the undisputed king of ALL monsters.

Since I wrote that I have been warming up to the thought of Godzilla being that big.

Some of the people who worked on the last series of films mentioned that one of the reasons for changing his height back from 100 to around 50 meters, was because they lost a lot of detail in the miniatures. Obviously that shouldn't be a concern when dealing with CGI this time round.

I had heard that too. I just hope that they don't make Godzilla so massive that it makes it hard to suspend disbelief.

With atomic breath no less!

I figured they keep making him bigger to keep pace with the ever increasing size of modern high-rise structures. In 1954 Tokyo, yeah, a 50 meter monster was a big deal! Today, the poor guy would almost be lost among the city skyline. Hmm, a daikaiju version of "Where's Waldo?"

And yes, I'm speaking in hyperbole.

Sincerely,

Bill

Re: Godzilla 2014: Rumors, Pix and filming

There's been some toy descriptions making the rounds, mentioning the term "Muto" and "Mutos" in reference, to the other creatures that the humans and Godzilla encounters. One of them is said to be the "exclusive 8-legged Muto", and there's even mention of a "Winged Muto" too.

Re: Godzilla 2014: Rumors, Pix and filming

Whenever I read or hear the word "muto", I think of the derisive term the Kaleds used to describe the "scarred relics of themselves" banished to the wastelands of the planet Skarro.

Sincerely,

Bill
