FIAT Godzilla VFX Breakdown by MPC by itsartmag
In Summer 2014, the world’s most revered monster is reborn as Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures unleash the epic action adventure “Godzilla.” From visionary new director Gareth Edwards (“Monsters”) comes a powerful story of human courage and reconciliation in the face of titanic forces of nature, when the awe-inspiring Godzilla rises to restore balance as humanity stands defenseless.

Gareth Edwards directs “Godzilla,” which stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson (“Kick-Ass”), Oscar® nominee Ken Watanabe (“The Last Samurai,” “Inception”), Elizabeth Olsen (“Martha Marcy May Marlene”), Oscar® winner Juliette Binoche (“The English Patient,” “Cosmopolis”), and Sally Hawkins (“Blue Jasmine”), with Oscar® nominee David Strathairn (“Good Night, and Good Luck.,” “The Bourne Legacy”) and Bryan Cranston (“Argo,” TV’s “Breaking Bad”).

GODZILLA will stomp into theaters May 16, 2014.

Super funny how excited people were for this film and then it came out and you barley heard anything. I thought people were going way over board on the trailor and from what I gather it was pretty underwhelming. Glad I didn't waste my Money at the movies for this.

@Namor,

"I thought people were going way over board on the trailor"

Can you blame them?
Those trailers were awesome.

Especially the 'Fatman' trailer WB took down.

A sketchblog I'm a part of did a 'Historical Figures as Kaijus' week.
This was mine.

The movie was a mixed bag honestly. I thought it was awesome, but everyone was expecting something different from it, so some people thought it was great and some people thought it was lame.

The best way to describe the movie is probably comparing it to Jaws. Same basic buildup. Now, if you wanted to see two hours of monsters just fighting, this isn't your movie.

Personally, I would recommend seeing it, because if nothing else, the monsters look AMAZING on the big screen.
But it's your money, not mine... :P

Definitely not what I expected

Barely a decent movie, but I don't think I'll ever watch this movie again

So I'm guessing the marketing was really effective?

That's one BIG P**sy.

@whysoserious295

why not both? can't I enjoy both kind of films? do I really have to choose? the "dark and gritty = good/ colorful and cheesy = bad" argument is really stupid and it got old 6 years ago when TDK came out.
SuperCat - 6/21/2014, 3:18 PM
Lol! @ FarkinA

Everyone's entitled to their opinion, and mine is that pretty much everything about this movie was perfect; I've said ad nauseum that this was the best moviegoing experience I've had outside of an MCU film, so much so that I've seen it three times. Hope to catch it one more time before the long wait for the blu-Ray begins.

Niiiiice. THis movie was sick. Exactly what I wanted my Godzilla movie to be.

On another note, off topic really, I just read the thread where John Byrne talks about the problem of not enough black characters in CBMs and just slapping a black face on it to appease the masses is just hurting the real problem of a lack of unique strong black characters.

DAMN it was good. I suggest everybody take a peak at that article. Made me really think.

This was Battle: Los Angeles with aliens substituted for giant radioactive monsters. A generic action military movie where the lead soldier is constantly placed in situations with the monsters and miraculously survives every encounter. At least it made sense in Battle LA. Godzilla was nothing more than a contrived and glorified deus ex machina

Godzilla >>>>>>>>> Pacific Rim
UlisesMX - 6/21/2014, 4:08 PM
I found the MUTUs too simplistic
wbrowning79 - 6/21/2014, 4:17 PM
Whoa! Whew! That scared me. For a second I thought that was in the film and I didn't see that I was a stupid FIAT commercial. And no I didn't see it yet.
MrNiklander - 6/21/2014, 4:17 PM
Godzilla wasn't underwhelming movie had some pretty badass moments it just needed better leads.We had Bryan Cranston and dude dies at the first 35 minutes.The whole movie fall entirely on Aaron Taylor Johnson who looks out of place.Olsen wasn't bad the script had it there it just needed a better lead to sell it
dio - 6/21/2014, 4:34 PM
Awesome shit Hump!!!

And funny Pic lmao ...tha dog and the lizard just chillin...or is it the lion now?
PunPun - 6/21/2014, 5:32 PM
Robocop was better than this [frick]ing stinker of a film.
JediPhilosopher - 6/21/2014, 5:32 PM
Godzilla could've been much better. The monster itself could've been much better. Why is Godzilla so hard to get right?
Humperdink - 6/21/2014, 5:37 PM
@Dio

Yeah that was Snoop Lion and Seth Rogen before I went to work on it.
Thanks!

When I saw this, the power in my theater went out about 5 minutes in, was a pretty cool effect until I had to sit in the dark for a couple of minutes until the power came back on.
Demongod20 - 6/21/2014, 7:03 PM
WTF is everyone talking about. Godzilla was one of the better films to come out this year.
Koala - 6/21/2014, 8:24 PM
I loved this movie; that being said, I think Warner felt like they had to hold back on this one in order to show Toho that America could treat Godzilla properly first.
earzmundo - 6/21/2014, 9:35 PM
mutos were too cloverfield
MightyZeus - 6/21/2014, 10:14 PM
Great concept art for a terrific film. I'm glad this film got Godzilla right. If the film where to have full focus on the fight scenes then the audience would be bored and there would have been no excitement to the last fight of the film. I'm actually glad that the film focused on the human disaster and how people would view MUTO's and Godzilla as a threat. This film seriously felt like an event and felt that it was paying homage to the Godzilla films with putting it's own spin on things.
loki668 - 6/21/2014, 11:18 PM
I enjoyed the hell out of this movie. I could have done without the musical number that had Godzilla twerking at the end but, all in all, an enjoyable film.

I'm now being told that the musical number was not actually in the film and that I had eaten the wrong mushrooms on my pizza. Still enjoyed it!

^^^kill yourself
loki668 - 6/22/2014, 12:00 AM
You first. Or, at the least, you could be a bit more imaginative!
DrBrooklyn - 6/22/2014, 1:54 AM
You could compare 'Godzilla' (2014) to 'Jaws' EXCEPT 'Jaws' had superb acting from James Woods and Robert Shaw. The monster and story were great in 'Godzilla' despite what people say but Aaron Taylor-Johnson sucked. Bryan Cranston;s talent made Johnson look like a complete amateur.
MrNiklander - 6/22/2014, 3:03 AM
^^^^^What DrBrooklyn said.Brody's father died and he was like hmmmm ok.The script was alright for a Godzilla movie but like I said Aaron Taylor Johnson was the weakest part of the movie which is bad considering that he is the main start

Great concept art. Fantastic movie! I absolutely loved it. It met all my expectations. Waaay better than that stinking pile of shit which we got in 1998. Plus it was much better than Pacific Rim. It kicked its ass. I look forward to a sequel (with Mothra or King Ghidorah hopefully).
