I don't know about many of you, but I am excitedly waiting on Godzilla 2014 to hit theaters on May 16 2014.

I saw the trailer (I'm a sucker for a good movie trailer) last weekend when I saw the horror movie "Oculus", which was a GREAT, CHILLING psychological thriller (go see it). I'll admit that I've never been into the Godzilla movie series growing up, but now, and mainly because I am into science, science-fiction, and political themes in modern film, I await Godzilla.

From what I assumed, Godzilla was a lizzard- type creature that was accidentally exposed to a large dose of radiation...now what perpelxes me to really find out is if the radiation was truly accidental or intentional. I think that is what interests me the most...

Is Godzilla on the side of humanity? Is he torturing humanity?

I also appreciate the political psychological theme that says "nuclear war is bad for humanity", which I beleive Godzilla, the creature, represents.

Very excited, and awaiting this one next month.



What say you all?

I'll wait for it to come out on DVD, however:


Godzilla is one of my all time favorite movie monsters!

I used to run home every friday to watch a godzilla movie on tv!

Godzilla was the result of atomic radiation.
Seems Japan has unleashed their Godzilla for sure.

I did notice how eerily reminiscent of the radiation fallout from Fukushima that this movie has....

Very interesting

Maybe there'll be a MechaGodzilla we have to battle on our side.

The story-line allots 70 years or so to construct an "anti-godzilla" device.

Sure to be a good movie

So the question is:

Was Godzilla created accidentally by a radiation fallout?

Was he created intentionall by miltary scientist to be used as a weapon (against the Japanese)?

Here's the thing about the original Godzilla movie: It's an unflinchingly bleak, deceptively powerful film about coping with and taking responsibility for incomprehensible, manmade tragedy. Specifically, nuclear tragedies. As such, Godzilla isn't just the best monster flick I've ever seen. It's arguably the best window into post-war attitudes towards nuclear power we've got—as seen from the perspective of its greatest victims.

And it still rings brutally true today. There's a reason that, after the 2011 meltdown at the Fukushima Daishi reactor, Google searches for 'godzilla' spiked in Asia. The world's most famous kaiju—Japanese for 'strange creature'—remains for many the cultural embodiment of nuclear hubris, and they returned to him perhaps to be reminded of what seemed at the time an unheeded warning. Because that's clearly what Godzilla was: A somber, cautionary tale about nukes.

Let's clarify. I'm talking about Gojira, Ishiro Honda's original 1954 Japanese cut. It screened at the Film Forum this week, where I watched it for the first time. I was expecting a Mystery Science Theater 3000-type setting, with a giddy crowded theater making wise-cracks at the shoddy special effects and bad acting.

There is a nice little page about the history of Godzilla.

Ahhh.....Thanks!!

But isn't Godzilla 2014 going to have new origins for him ( I read that somewhere).

Seems like he is an decendant from a dinasaur species from 70 millins years ago, but then other sources say he is a result from nuclear radiation; accidental or intentional...

From what I remember from the Godzilla movies was the he was a prehistoric creature that was hibernating in the ocean in ice or something and all of the nuclear bombs and nuclear testing awoke him with am extra power: fire breathing. I don't think it was intentional according to the old movies. Godzilla was basically an allegory of the nuclear age. That a beast was awakened with the advent of nuclear technology. Godzilla was sort of the hand of mother nature hell bent on revenge.
Like B.O.C. said, "History shows again and again how nature points out the follies of man."

I hope they didn't change the origin!

That would kind of ruin it for me. Maybe they are trying to be PC and sensitive to the Japanese meltdown issue, but I hope not because that makes Godzilla all the more prophetic and real.

Oh no! I think I was reading somewhere where maybe someone suggested that they did...I believe this one is true to the ole' skool.

It looks from the preview to be true to the original, so I'll just keep my thought on that idea and maybe go see it when it comes out.

The preview looks awesome.

The originals had Gammar (flying turtle) and Godzilla fighting.

I have been looking forward to watching this too, but my kids are even more excited. As I'm getting older, I realize they have to do these remakes for the younger crowd and trash what we grew up on. I will still watch and I'm sure I will like it.
