Cool! Can't wait for Godzilla! Getting gassy just thinking about it!

Great. The Harry Potter score is iconic.

Speaking of Kaiju, just got back from Pacific Rim at the cheap theatre, but I missed the first three minutes or so. Did those minutes explain why a jaeger needs two people to pilot it in the first place?

Jollem, Godzilla is a [frick]ing kaiju, his films were the first to start publicly using that term. [frick]ing troll
Jollem - 8/30/2013, 2:48 PM
@maninfinehat - yezzir. too much for one pilot(well, most). their bodies can't handle everything and they get all messed up

@Grayson7954 - calm down, sir. you're gonna hurt yourself or burst a vessel or something

I hope that Godzilla will be in The Avengers 3

@Jollem I see. Thank you.

''Godzilla: Not As Cool As The Kaiju''

That's like saying Batman or Superman are not as Cool As The Superheroes IMHO
Grayson7954 - 8/30/2013, 3:21 PM
@JGAR exactly. "godzilla: not as cool as the kaiju" is such a completely moronic comment.

when the hell are we going to get a damn trailer for this already?

His scores for Deathly Hallows Pt1 and 2 are some of my favorite pieces of cinema music ever! "Lily's Theme", "Courtyard Apocalypse", and "Obliviate" especially.

My excitement for the new Godzilla ranges somewhere between "Meh" and "Oh cool, I forgot they were making that" so I doubt I'll pay to see it on the screen (unless the trailers really impress). At least we know the music will be good :)

@The13thDoctor

Why is it looking meh for you?
The13thDoctor - 8/30/2013, 3:41 PM
I don't think the movie is looking "Meh", JGAR... I'm simply saying thats my level of excitement. For all i know the movie may be amazing and I'm certainly not going to judge it on what little info we've gotten. It's just not one of those movies that I'm super pumped for.

As long as the Godzilla theme is done justice then I have no problem with this guy.

Definitely my most anticipated film of 2014!
Nemeres - 8/30/2013, 4:52 PM
Man, I'm really feeling it for this movie. And now with Desplat, it will have YET ANOTHER THING going for it: ridiculously re-listenable music. I wish I remembered how to insert images, just so I could insert THIS:

This one's a winner, buds. Mark my words. Godzilla will own 2014.

Jollem Godzilla has those monsters and Jaegers from Pacific Rim for breakfast and he is hungry now!!
HeroWithAThousandFaces - 8/30/2013, 6:08 PM
They better add Blue Oyster Cult's "Godzilla" song in order for this to be a true Godzilla movie.

@niklander - :)

When I was younger, I was fascinated with the idea of Godzilla. This looks good so far.

The score he did for HP was amazing.
