Godzilla Roars Back Again

It been many years since the 1998 Godzilla Reboot disapointed so many long time fans of the Giant Green monster from Japan. But not Warner Bros will again reboot Godzilla with director Director Gareth Edwards. From the stills I have seen, I must say I am excited.

Several monsters are reported to be involved in the rampage scenes, and Godzilla will be facing off against some new Monsters, but I am not sure how closely this reboot will follow the TOHO originals. I hope Mothra makes it into the new film. Here is a picture from set Godzilla is set to be released May 2014.

Speaking of Godzilla I want to talk the underrated Godzilla The Series Cartoon that got kinda lost in the shuffle back in the late 90s on Fox Kids. I personally think that the toon was better than the 1998 film.

I personally like the opening of the show where Godzilla climbs and wraps itself around a tall building King Kong style. The show ran from 1998 to 2000. The series is currently streaming on Netflix.
Here is a clip to a episode of the Godzilla The Series Toon

My Man of Steel Review

I saw the new Superman "Man of Steel" over the weekend and I have to say it was great, way better than Superman Returns, and the certainly better than the last two films from late great Christopher Reeves era, Superman III and 4.

I really enjoyed the back-story, it was what made it for me. I didn't miss all of the campy humor of the 80's Superman's. It excluded "awkward nerd" Clark, Jimmy Olsen, no phone booth changes, and bad one liners. I liked that this one laid out why he had his given powers, not just that "He's superhuman, let your mind conclude how".

The fight scenes with Zod were over the top, and I enjoyed that but couldn't help but think that they were pandering to short attention spans but it worked well. Kinda felt like those old school Godzilla films where Tokyo was being destroyed when Godzilla went on a rampage. Too bad Russel Crowe wasn't in the film much although his "ghost" does make a return and Kevin Costner made a good Papa Kent. Overall I give a 4 out of 5 and I would see it again.

Man of Steel is doing good box office business we will probably get that much rumoured Justice League film.

Man of Steel Superman at the crossroads

The new Superman Man of Steel opened early this morning and I cant wait to see it. Having grown up with comic book heroes, Superman was the first hero I enjoyed as a child. Flash forward to 2013 and the upcoming film I can only hope Superman can find a audience with current movie fans.

Its been seven years since the last Superman Returns film and we have seen Superman struggle gaining acceptance from those who love Batman, Spiderman, The Avengers, X-Men and Iron Man.

I hope Man of Steel finds a younger audience and garner some crossover success again like the Superman films of the late 1970s.

With that said Superman has got some cool promotional ties in to promote the film like this Carl Jrs Ad
