Finally Broke My Crowdfunding Rule
By oblivion437
Posted on 01/12/15
I've had a long-standing rule to avoid getting involved in any sort of crowdfunded activities.  I didn't donate to Shadowrun or Wasteland, but I did buy and enjoy both of them (I'm plugging both of those games right now, just so you know they're good).  I haven't...

Godzilla. Fantastic movie, excellent pace.

I can't praise it enough. Of course, some people are going to rip it to shreds because hating things is popular now, but fuck 'em. (Don't really expect anyone here to rip it apart, though. In fact I think a lot of you would love it.)

Lol I know, it was a Simpsons joke. Sometimes I forget not everyone at GR knows everything about the first 10 seasons haha.

Necro, I definitely wanna see Bryan Cran- I mean Godzilla! I'm assuming it's above and beyond that craptastic film from the 90's.

It succeeds at not being a dumb monster movie. It's a slow-burn movie that takes the classic approach of building tension, then unleashing everything in the final 30 minutes. I can't really say much because of spoilers, but it is worth it. I will even dare to say it's an intelligent movie, despite being a giant monster movie. It is in no way Pacific Rim, which while I loved that movie, I know its a big dumb awesome movie. Godzilla's just an awesome movie, without the dumb.

I highly recommend it.

I liked Godzilla a lot when I was a kid, but I became more interested in the stop-motion animated Harryhausen movies. (Thanks, Ted Turner.) I have read Godzilla was actually directly inspired by "The Beast from 20,000 phantoms." I do enjoy Godzilla, but in a comical "Mystery Science Theater" manner - their Gamera parodies are my favorite.
It all boils down to taste. I just feel stop-motion animation gives the monsters character and a sense of realism that just can't be imagined with a guy in a suit.

I completely agree, but I will say in the newest version, Godzilla has been given more personality that I was expecting. There's a moment in the movie, you'll recognize it, toward the end where Godzilla has more personality, emotion and intelligence crammed into his 350-foot frame than all of his past movies combined.

I wasn't expecting that 5 seconds of pure, raw emotion to be displayed in a monsters eyes, it caught me off guard and I'll never forget it.

Two things, Wicked. First it's Heisenberg. Second, not to play the devil's advocate, there was a good thing that came out of the 90's film... beside Jean Reno, of course.

Also gonna watch the film tomorrow, that hype better be worth it!

I just watched an extended trailer for it, and it does look pretty awesome. I just don't want to go to the theater. Last time I went to a theater was to see Rob Zombie's Halloween. I can't sit still for very long and I like to rewind a LOT. I like closed captioning too because I must be losing my hearing. Seems to be kind of laid back at the captioning plant, though. They practically re-write the script with all the paraphrasing and omissions.

Saw Spider-Man and one thing I hate about this reboot is there is no J Jonah Jameson! I guess the director knew he was perfectly cast in the first trilogy and couldn't top it but still I miss Parker at his job. No Daily Bugle means we're never going to get the Eddie Brock/Venom villian.

Well, in the comics Eddie Brock never worked for the Daily Bugle. He worked for the Daily Globe, its competitor. So it's still possible for him to show up.

I also saw Godzilla last night and I really enjoyed it too! Turned out a lot better than I was expecting.

The Wolf of Wall Street

So far, the best from last year that I saw this year. The whole "rise and fall of a criminal" thing plays a lot like Goodfellas (one of my all-time favorites), but instead of heights of money, drugs, and violence, its money, drugs, and sex. But as long as Scorcese is copying Scorcese, who cares? And who knew Leo had the capacity for physical comedy(I'm referring to, of course the expired quaaludes scene)? Also, this was easily the most debauchery I've ever seen in any movie.

I watched Mud.

Meh. Not bad, not great.

Saw a few movies... watched X-Men: Days of Future Past. I loved it! Such a good movie! Want to see it again!

Also watched the DC animated film Son of Batman, which I thought was pretty good. Not epic, but it was good.

Locke


I have a soft spot for the one-character shows (though this example is very dialog driven), and this one lives up to my expectations. Locke is driving and is dealing with the drama elements interacting with the hands-off cell phone. Tom Hardy conveys the character well with the limited resources, and while some could say the small setting is a visual stunt, it is a stunt done well.

4.5/5

Funny. I kind of feel the same about Neighbors. I expected a little bit more in the laughs department. It's definitely a 4/5 for me but barely.
