Godzilla 2012: Here we go again


I remember back to the mid-90’s and how Sony was trying tirelessly to make an Americanized Godzilla. They had Jan de Bont, the director of Speed and Twister, attached to direct at one point in time and that fell through. Then it went to Ronald Emmerich and Dean Devlin (whatever happened to Dean Devlin, after Godzilla (1998) he dropped off the face of the Earth, according to his wikipedia he and Emmerich wrote a sequel to Independence Day–which has been rumored since the mid-90’s) who wrote, produced and directed Star Gate and Independence Day. I was so freaking excited. I think I saw it twice in the theaters (maybe three) I liked it a lot. But, alas, it was only because I was in a stage in my life that I thought sequels or follow up movies by a director were better than the previous ones. Really a childish type of thought process I know. I know so much better now…


Anyway, I’m not a fan of these types of monster movies. I feel, like the Hulk movies that they are all the same. How can you have a good plot and story (in this day and age) about a monster that has a compelling story. Before you cite off Peter Jackson’s King Kong and Cloverfield, they both had a lot of character development and intrigue (more so King Kong then Cloverfield).

If you don’t agree, let me know!
