I’m definitely pumped to see this now. There’s some new footage in this newly released tease of the upcoming Gareth Edwards’ “Godzilla” and I’m already loving it. Now I can safely say that this film is right up there as one of my most anticipated summer films f this year.
“Godzilla” smashes through on the 16th of May. Don’t miss it!
I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty pumped for this. If these visuals are anything to go by,this might be my new “Pacific Rim” – the ultimate nerd experience. Directed by Gareth Edwards and starring Bryan Cranston, Ken Watanabe, David Strathairn and many others, “Godzilla” is set to destroy the theaters on the 16th of May 2014.
I can’t wait!!!
This week has not been exactly normal and due to several unforeseen circumstances my writing got terribly disrupted. Anyways, I managed to go and see “Stoker” and I intended to have the review written and up online by now, but hey…
Meanwhile, why don’t you have a look at “Rampage: Project Vermillion ? It’s a very nice short that takes the monster movie genre with a small twist. It’s done on a budget which shows, but in my view, the nature of the special effects give “Rampage” a nostalgic and hipsterish gojira-esque feel. However, the Cloverfield-like way of shooting the monster sequences (shaky camera movement and out-of-focus imagery) conceals any shortcomings of the technical department and gives the whole movie a modern look. Surprisingly enough, it’s not the effects, but a simple conversation that takes up the bulk of “Rampage”. A conversation that implies we’d get to see more of Justin Calen Chenn’s short-monstrosity-extravaganza. I mean seriously: you just gave me a slice of cake… A very good cake… You can’t just take it away now. In an ideal world I’d like to see this short turn into a series of at least three films. So I guess, we should start donating money to Justin in order to make this happen, right?
That’ll be all for now. I think this might be a new formula for my Shortcake column: a shorter, more compact, and hopefully starting now – a bit more frequent event. Honestly, too many quality shorts are slipping to my fingers and I can’t write about all of them if I’m doing it once a week. I’ll think about how I want to go about it, but I think short films will start making appearances in here more often.
Off to write that “Stoker” review. I’m out.
