Default Godzilla: Final Wars

I've been waiting for this movie in the US for about a year, since it came out in Japan - I saw it available in my Netflix Queue and decided to rent it at Hollywood so I could watch it NOW.

This is the BE ALL END ALL of Godzilla movies - it even has him fighting a creature similar to the Americanized Godzilla of 2000 - (I haven't seen it yet, but I suspect he kicks his ass to the wall)

There will be no more Godzilla movies for some time - (and I'm still awaiting an original Japanese cut of the original 1954 film) - there are so many branches in continunity in the Godzilla movies, you could never follow them from one to the other, but the last few have gotten REALLY good.

Toho films adds all the creatures in their final battle and trash several cities - Rodan, Gigan, Mothra, Zilla, and Monster X.

On a widescreen upconverted DVD - Godzilla defeats all monsters...

I am SO lighting a bowl and watching this - movie report to follow in 2 hrs....

Default My Review...2.5 out of 4 stars

just finished watching it- ...

wow - cheesy cheap effects and cheesy DIGITAL effects at that - in 2005.

It was good....

I just really liked the 1954 Godzilla. When he was a statement on atomic energy gone bad. When he wasn't a punchline or a kid's cartoon, but a stone cold killer like a dinosaur stalking you.

The original in 1954 had comments like this (in the Japanese Version - cut from the American version for obvious reasons...)

(character speaking in reference to Godzilla) - I can't take this again - not after Hiroshima and Nagasaki...

Space aliens my ass...

But yah...not bad - but for all the hype I guess I was hoping for a LITTLE less cheese -

they even had gadsuki and the mini-twins, for crying out loud...LOL

----------

interesting Trivia - from IMDB.COM

This 28th Godzilla film marked the final use of Toho's "Big Pool" (which did the water scenes for all Toho special effects-related films since Hawai Middouei daikaikusen: Taiheiyo no arashi (1960), for which it was constructed; The Big Pool was 88 meters wide and 72 meters long). It was given one final performance when it was last used for this film on September 7th, and was demolished on October 13th. Toho's decision to destroy the pool was due to "progress of special effects technology such as CG, and a large-scale reconstruction plan of the studio." This was considered by many to be the end of an era.

with a purposefu; grimace and a terrible sound,
He pulls those spitting high tension wires down,
helpless people on a subway train scream "My God!" as he looks in on them
He picks up a bus and throws it back down as he wades through the building towards the center of town.

Oh No there goes tokyo go go godzilla!
Oh no they say he's got to go go go godzilla!
