The orchestral score was pretty good too.

Though why Roland Emmerich, who built his career on scenes of catastrophic destruction, opted to portray the monster as a frightened lizard cowering in fear most of the movie instead of a fire belching engine of destruction I will never know. You'd think scenes of something mowing down city blocks and melting tanks would be right up his alley.

Godzilla's radioactivity literally hasn't been a major issue since the first movie and maybe the latest one.
That's not entirely true. I remember it was a plot point in Godzilla 1984, and also in Godzilla vs Destroyah where Godzilla's nuclear heart begins to meltdown.

The Japanese are sensitive to the topics of atomic/nuclear/radiation. It seems to wax and wane and we see it in the media. Ever since 2011, they've been super-sensitive again.

I recently watched a video about the flop PS4 Godzilla game. Godzilla was supposed to get powerups from demolishing nuclear reactors, but this had to be cut at the 11th hour and hastily changed.

Godzilla is approaching the generator, the generator is losing power...

Having a 100+ ft. tall lizard that can also vomit energy beams was probably considered not "realistic" enough :roll:

It also had a high during the Showa era. The only Ultraman episode to ever get banned portrayed aliens with authentic radiation burn.

At first I thought this guy was exaggerating, but once I saw Game of Thrones in the trailer, something was up.

The first part with Lebron is lame, but once he was sent into the 2D world, it seemed a little better as its animated pretty faithfully to the original. Then it really went to shit when it turned into Ready Player One. This guy wasn't joking.

Much like anyone once else, I don't know what to make of it. Wasn't expected, so you didn't really care about it since it wasn't anticipated. In fact, I haven't been hyped for anything in years since maybe Smash 4.

The only good thing I could say about it so far is that hopefully it sparks a return to traditional form.

AKA Live Action Evangelion, but with Godzilla skin.
Somewhat interesting take on the IP, but it was ultimately just Hideaki Anno stroking his own ego for the billionth time in a row.

At least it kickstarted some animu movie series that I have yet to watch.

Why would it? Mary Poppins 2 did not.
