The Royal Birthday"Remember, Remember the Third of November...The Season of Kaiju was Wrought...
...I know of no reason, why the Daikaiju Season should Ever. Be. Forgot..."
Some of you may not know it, but then again, some of you might. But for those of you who don't know what I'm talking about, your friendly Godzilla Obsessive Linkzilla is here to inform you.
Tomorrow officially marks Godzilla's 60th Birthday...
Yes folks; 60 years ago, the original Gojira premiered in Theaters in Japan, gracing us with the Greatest Monster the world will ever know.
It is unbelievable that it has been Ten years since his monumental 50th Anniversary. And ever since, we've been hearing things; rumors, speculations and plans that never happened. And here, on the 60th year, we got our second chance to do an American Godzilla that did the character justice. And I think that's something to be proud of.
So, what else does this mean? Well - ever since I started here on Deviantart, I have been keeping an Annual Tradition.
Tarantino, Binoche, Godzilla and You!"Tarantino said to me, 'That was the first time I've ever cried during a 3D blockbuster, I had to take off my glasses to wipe away my tears.' I took it as a compliment."
Juliette Binoche talking about her performance in Godzilla
Ms. Binoche only needed 225 seconds of screen time on Godzilla to show why she's considered one of the best actresses alive!
What about you? Who was driven to the brink of tears by Bryan Cranston and Juliette Binoche electrifying performances? C'mon...dont be shy!
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.
See the game trailer here
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

In The Shadow of Dragons
"Is the time of daring deeds forgotten, and spent the fire of men? The bravery sheathed, the proud hearts withered? In the scorched trails of our foes’ fury, even wizards’ spells knelt and warriors’ will bent; yet Dawn’s struggle beneath the burning clouds, within the shadow of dragons, has won her the eastern sky. Shall battle drums thunder once more, and mithril–clad soldiers brave again the terrors of the skies?"

Collection: Alternative Universe
The “alternative universe” has long been a sci–fi trope, usually simply a good–guy bad–guy heroes and villains reversal. Like the Star Trek episode (“Mirror, Mirror”) in which a transporter glitch lands Kirk on an evil pirate “parallel universe” Enterprise where Spock is a goateed murderer with mutiny on his agenda. But real scientists have complicated things considerably, with “string theory” positing at least eleven (and possibly an infinite number) of “alternative/parallel universes.”
Once upon a time, we pondered our relative insignificance as sin

There has always been this obsession with the others we share this planet with.
We communicate with them on certain basic levels and yet they inhabit a plane so different from ours: savage, instinctive, a life of sheer survival. At the same time they can do things beyond human abilities: fly through the skies, swim the oceans, apply t

The Steampunk Menagerie
The magic of thousands of years of natural selection and other evolutionary factors has created in all living creatures pretty much the optimal version of each for where each fits in the world. But never tell a human being, especially a steampunk, that there’s no need to fix what isn’t broken.
Here’s a collection of interesting imaginings of mechanical steampunk replacements for the somewhat mundane denizens of the actual natural world. For some people, especially some artists, until there’s been an upgrade or enhancement to anything, there just isn’t any “there” there.
