Godzilla (2014) The world ends, Godzilla begins

This entry was posted in Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi, Thriller by Cleave on

Godzilla-2014-Movie-PosterThis new and reimagined creature of Godzilla is a mastery of story telling and CGI combined. Gone is the rubber suit that made Toho famous. Now we have a monster that is more bear than cat. Even though more of the fights are CGI, the film still stays true to the feel of the battles that Toho made famous with the King of Monsters. Some might not like the new ‘Zilla but other than it being more bear like instead of cat like, I like the new beast and this reviewer feels that so will others, given a chance.

The film opens up with a backdrop of nuclear testing in the ’50s. Even the credits that roll are interesting if you actually read them before the redaction sequence. Ones like the examples here are quite amusing:

Reliability of these sightings is still questionable based on the character witness. One must ask, is “Godzilla” owned and created by TOHO CO., LTD.

And another interesting one:

I did find Mahjongg Artifacts: Chapter 2 to be far more superior to Mahjongg Artifacts. It took us on a different path from the original game, and featured a new character while still incorporating characters from the first game. This sequel also featured Marc, and his sister, Kathrin. We find Kathrin in Japan when she learns about Marc’s disappearance, and through a myriad of mahjongg puzzles, we go on a hunt across Asia and Europe to find him, using puzzles based on the cultures of Japan, China, India, and Central Europe. I did find it very cool that the European puzzle tiles featured images from the Rider-Waite Tarot deck. It seems that between game one and game two, Marc became endowed with magical powers that would take one extreme to another. He devastated India with his powers. In places that were thriving, yet full of vice, he would send poverty. Where people were starving, they would suddenly become fat. Where there was sever drought, suddenly there were floods. It was too much, too soon. In Europe, Kathrin would look for signs of sorcery, but once she found a medium, the medium informed her that even the gods had grown weary of Marc’s extreme ways.

The Last Samurai

One man who is fighting against his demons must rise above himself to not only save himself but an entire nation as well that isn’t even his own. It is just before the Civil War and during the American Indian Wars that one man whose deeds and what he has seen hunts him. Hi has nightmares about the past and what it did to him, so bad are the memories that he has taken to drinking constantly to try and drown them out. Not only do they haunt his sleep but they haunt his every waking moment as well. He knows no peace and in some ways feels that he doesn’t even deserve any peace, such is the life of Captain Nathan Algren (Tom Cruise)
