Hello to all of you in DA and in particular the wonderful friends, watchers, and fellow Godzilla fans here!  :) (Smile) As soon as it was announced at SDCC a number of years ago I have followed every development, trailer, and news about this New Godzilla movie. I've been hoping and hoping it would actually come out and be all that we all wanted it to be. I'm writing this to tell anyone who's interested...it IS!!!! :D This IS GODZILLA!!! :D 

 I'm currently visiting Nellis, AFB near Las Vegas, NV doing my yearly 2 weeks of duty with the Air National Guard. I just saw the new movie tonight.  There have been early showings here that began tonight at 7pm and I caught that show at one of the theatres showing it in 3-D and IMAX. I just got back from it actually....and I will tell all of you right now....This movie is AWESOME!!!!! THIS IS the Godzilla we've all wanted, waited so long for, and always new Godzilla could be!!!!! :D (Big Grin)  I am ready to go right back out and see it a few more times in the theatre. Yes....it's worth it!! :D (Big Grin) 

 This IS GODZILLA. TOHO's GODZILLA... as we all knew he could be, if done correctly through the right people, with the right budget. Gareth Edwards.....Thank you so much for this movie!!!! Thank you and that gigantic crew who all worked so hard on this picture! It IS FANTASTIC!!!!! :D (Big Grin) 

If at all possible, by all means spend the extra money to see this in 3-D and IMAX. It works and is so, SOOOO worth it!!!!! :D (Big Grin)  

While chomping at the bit this week for the movie to come out I've read a few of the various professional reviews too about this new movie and I'm here right now to tell you all...ignore them.

The movie ROCKS!!!!!, and is just about as perfect a Godzilla movie as we could all hope for.

As I am thinking about it, and trying to process all that I just saw, I am coming to that conclusion that  for all the greatness that this knew movie is, and it IS GREAT, that it complements, but still doesn't overshadow the original 1954 Godzilla. Oh, it's a reimaging of course, and a tremendous one, but it really still doesn't take away or replace the excellence and horror of the original one. And THAT is really an achievement, and is very cool in my book.

There is so much to say about this movie and to digest about it and it will take me awhile to do it. There are 2 other things I want to mention here for this evening about this movie, before I conclude this for tonight.

One, the trailers were all excellent, and believe it or not, really didn't give away anything, while at the same time greatly assuaging our fears of a bad Godzilla movie, and whetting our whistles big time to see this movie. Again, quite an accomplishment of Gareth Edwards and his team.  Also, the MUTOS are an excellent new Godzilla adversary, and are done, very, very well.


Two, The pictures we've seen of the toys of it (the MUTOS) and the images in the trailers, don't really give away anything, and really don't do it justice. But, they are what they are...excellent teases to really wet the whistle for more.

There are so many easter eggs and homages in the movie, it's unreal. One will only notice them if they are Godzilla and movie fans though, and they don't in any way detract from the movie. But, they are SWEEEEET and a lot of fun to see and find. I'm sure I've not seen all of them, and really only saw a few obvious ones (to me anyway.) They are fun though. :D

Lastly, after the movie ended (there is NO teaser at the end of the credits) I SOOOO want to see more movies (or at least one more, anyway) with THIS Godzilla and with this crew helming it.

Go see this movie!!! :) (Smile)

Go , Go, GODZILLA!!!!!! :D (Big Grin)

P.S. I do want to talk more about this movie, but I'll wait until it has opened throughout the country tomorrow, as if I say much more, I'll start giving away spoilers, and I don't want to do this. ;) (Wink)

Have a great night everyone!!! :D (Big Grin)
