No taboos: what was not-so-good about Godzilla?For some months I've been waiting to open this topic. Now that the hype surrounding the film has cooled off, I believe most of us can throw a critic, honest look upon Legendary’s Godzilla.
I rely on your ability of respect for others’ opinions, so please don’t make me regret bringing this discussion to light. I believe that, by sharing our true analysis of the film, we can grow even more consistent as a group. It’s a chance to know better each other, and to know better Godzilla, and to have a say regarding what we expect to see solved in the sequel.
Personally, I feel that the movie delivered what it promised, but just what it promised, falling way short on its true potential. Yes, human characters were handled with care, Sandra’s last scene was truly moving, the homely takes with Ford and Elle made me smile. Yes, like Honda made 60 years ago, Godzilla worked more as a shadow threat than a physical threat, making the kaiju fights short
'Godzilla 2' set to debut on June 8th, 2018Yep, almost 4 years to go...
'Godzilla' ended his theatre run grossing exactly $507,790,121 in all World, more than triple-justifying Legendary's $150M investment on the film's production and infinitely-justifying a sequel, which will count with the presences of Rodan, Mothra and King Ghidorah!!
Rodan, Mothra, Ghidorah on 'Godzilla' sequels!!!Nevermind Legendary would come to SDCC 2014 with a faint presentation, after releasing their big summer blockbusters Pacific Rim and Godzilla. Thomas Tull movie company showed they're ready to take hegemony on Hollywood with their new big partner Universal Pictures after bringing SDCC Hall H down with dozens of novelties. Who can judge them? After gaining the likes of some of the most creative minds of modern cinema, like Christopher Nolan, Guillermo del Toro or Gareth Edwards, their path to victory is straightforward!
After confirming the sequel to Pacific Rim, Legendary reinforces their monster movie tactic for upcoming years, confirming the presence of good ol' Rodan, Mothra and King Ghidorah for the next Godzilla movies!
King Kong will also return to the big screens on 2016 by the hands of Legendary, on the movie Skull Island:
Godzilla PS3 game + Pacific Rim 2Bandai Namco Games announced that it will release the PlayStation 3 game Godzilla in Japan this winter. The action game lets you play the monster itself against human civilization, as you clear missions by destroying buildings and weapons. The game will recreate the look of tokusatsu (special effects) movies, including signature tokusatsu camera angles and gunpowder explosions, with the latest graphics.

Guillermo del Toro confirms Pacific Rim comic book series, animated series and a movie sequel!
The sequel will be produced by Legendary and Universal Pictures and is set to debut on 7 April 2017.

Gareth Edwards will direct Star Wars spinoffGodzilla is still playing on theaters worldwide, but seems like Lucasfilm already made up his mind regarding the director of the Star Wars spinoff...
Gareth Edwards, Godzilla director, was hired to command this project, and I bet he couldn't be more happy, given he's an assumed fan of the franchise!
"Ever since I saw Star Wars I knew exactly what I wanted to do for the rest of my life - join the Rebel Alliance! I could not be more excited and honored to go on this mission with Lucasfilm"
This new project shall prove another great challenge for Mr. Edwards...after reviving the Godzilla franchise, he's now attached to the revival of Star Wars. Which character will his spinoff focus on?
"Gareth's filmmaking talent makes him one of his generation's most creative and visionary directors. The plan has always been for Gareth to direct a different film before we started on another Godzilla, but who knew it would be a Star Wars installment? We have
Metacritic: 63/100HERE THEY COME! They who trade the popcorns for a glass of Porto wine, they who like to write reviews that would make entire trilogies, and live in the fantasy that there's still legions who heed what they write, but still they write more because they need to buy more Porto wine!
Personally, I don't find professional reviews very useful regarding films like Godzilla, but impelled by morbid curiosity, I still read a few ones. I'll try to shorten the long spoilful paragraphs of the oh-I-understand-all-about-cinema-because-I've-seen-all-Bergman's-films people here:
Some critics bash Godzilla because they say the film is slow and they wanted to see more of Godzilla.
Other critics bash Godzilla because they say human characters are clichèed and their dialogue is dull (OK, I saw that coming on the trailers...)
Other critics praise Godzilla because they say the film's slow pace, the hidden menace of Godzilla and the focus on the characters gives Godzilla a t

Mr.Takarada won't appear on 'Godzilla''s final cutAkira Takarada revealed on Tokyo's "Super Festival" that his cameo scenes on Godzilla were omited from the final cut.
Akira Takarada played one of the protagonists (Hideto Ogata) on Gojira, the 1954 original film. Facebook group Cast Akira Takarada in the new Godzilla movie, succeeded on contacting both Mr. Takarada and Legendary Pictures and getting him a cameo for the 2014 film. You may imagine how this news was disheartening for us...
A Godzilla crew member talked to Tim Bean, the group's founder and the idea's mentor, explaning their decision:
"This was a really tough decision, but it was made out of a desire to have the best film possible... We would love your support and are hoping fans understand. We all hope to keep this franchise going for a long time!!!"
Before any irrational reaction, I'd like you to remember two facts:
-Godzilla is pointed by several sites and magazines as the
Inspiration: Art websitesMany people asked me about which sites I use (or used) to learn and keep myself updated about art. So I decided to make a list with art websites that offer tutorials, advice, or other content that inspired me. Of course there are many other individual artists that inspire me greatly, but I've tried to keep this list to the ones that provide the community of advice and tutorials (otherwise I could go on forever).
I hope you enjoy it ^__^

Halloween entertainment… or invitation to evil?
Grimoire 2 by AndrewDobell
We all know from the movies that a vampire can’t cross over the threshold into one’s home without being invited. And yet simply knowing that Dracula can be held at bay so easily makes issuing that invitation all the more irresistible. Could such things as supernatural beings actually be real? And could there be ways for we mere mortals to have the power to evoke them into existence or dismiss them as we might pleas
Collection: Fall LandscapesShare
There’s something about the brilliant colors of the dying leaves of autumn that reflects the wonders and the sorrows of life. It’s as if by waking up each morning into this beautiful world of natural colors, we are being given our bittersweet reward for surviving another year on the planet. We are regaled with a brief seasonal ceremony of the turning of the leaves, nature’s gift for our eyes as a promise she will soon return after her yearly rest. And then it’s time to let winter’s grey pallor unfold over us in blankets of dark cold rain and bright brisk snows; we sleep, the autumn’s leaves having promised… the warming light will soon return.
“Every leaf speaks bliss to me, fluttering from the autumn tree.”

Collection: Forgotten PastShare
schnotte is a German artist know for his photographs of rotting, decaying buildings and other dark themes. His camera explores architectural structures, but mostly to emphasize their coldness. The human figures in his photographs appear out of place, as if lost in filthy, forgotten, broken-down manufacturing machines, the cold, dark environments not built with humanity in mind. Looking through these images we can see the ghosts of the love that once inhabited his worlds and it is that love that still shines through his pictures. We are blown away by the beauty Schotte imbues to these deathly quiet scenes that are equally sad and uplifting.
