Godzilla - Why You Should See It

May 12, 2014
The King of Monsters is back indeed. "Godzilla" is making his triumphant return on the big screen in time of the 60th anniversary of the iconic giant's first appearance. At the same time, washing out the abomination that is the 1998 Roland Emmerich film. However, this newest reboot is looking pretty good, and here are a few notes why you should see it (as soon as possible)

Bigger Godzilla
The 1954  Godzilla is 50 m. tall. Which is already huge, and terrifying for that matter. But bigger is always better, as of now we don't know the specific height of the updated Kaiju - just look at the poster above and notice how big that thing is. So expect more destruction here and there.

Not one, but two monsters
This is well, a bit of a spoiler. The previews of the film hinted of another monster - a flying creature to be specific - is indeed to face Godzilla in a climactic showdown. It's been a while since we last saw two monsters brawling mano-y-mano - remember King Kong vs a T-Rex in the 2004 'King Kong' remake? - and Godzilla beating the crap of another monster. And yes, Matthew Broderick doesn't count.

The visuals
What's not a better way to bring back Godzilla with the latest Hollywood magic special effects. A better looking Godzilla can make the movie more grounded, and awesome-er. The trailers and spots of the movie looked gorgeous, so here's hoping that it's more of a CGI-heavy film.

If you're unaware of the film's cast, Bryan Cranston - known for his character of Walter White or Heisenberg in the great 'Breaking Bad' - will play the role of a scientist. He is currently one of the best actors on the business, and his performances speaks for itself. I'm really looking forward to what he'll do this time. Definitely not crystal meth.

The director
Director Gareth Edwards is someone who knows how to make a monster movie that is 't actually a monster movie. Being one of Hollywood's newest filmmakers, his debut feature 'Monsters' is a beautiful display of humanity - with the aspect of that good monster flick fun. He promised on a interview that he's doing a 'Jaws' approach with the film. And will focus more on the human character than it's title lead.

Just simply the idea of a Godzilla movie excites me. Having seen the 1954 Godzilla film earlier this week for the first time, I learned what's so special within this giant so famous - and scary up to now. You see with a cast that includes Bryan Cranston, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Juliette Binoche and Ken Watanabe and a talented director on helm, nothing could go wrong with this film. GOJIRA!!!!!!

'Godzilla' opens this Thursday, May 15 from Warner Bros. Pictures in 2D, 3D and IMAX 3D.
