In the late 1990's, I don't think anybody would have guessed that after the Americanized remake of "Godzilla" failed, we'd get a second treatment that was completely unconnected to the 90's treatment. But here we are, on the dawn of a new year, and that new year will bring a brand-new, Americanized Godzilla movie.
Do we really need another Godzilla movie? I'd say no, but the trailer at least got me to care a little bit.
How many remember the 1998 Godzilla movie? Perhaps not many, because it was pretty forgettable and one of the very worst films of the 1990's. It had some good actors in it, like Matthew Broderick, Kevin Dunn, Jean Reno and Hank Azaria, but talent can't coast on an uneven script. The effects were laughable, everything was predictable, and the parody of Siskel and Ebert? Unprofessional and un-needed, it really is that simple.
In 2014, we'll have Bryan Cranston, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen, three capable actors. The trailer really doesn't give much of the movie away at all, which is good. The movie "looks" more military themed, which could be cool. I don't think I can make a decision until I see another, bigger trailer. But for right now, its got me interested. That's definitely a plus.
