i’ve been hearing the new godzilla movie sux worse then the 0bama economy
Heisenberg vs Godzilla
Can't suck more than the Matthew Broderick version.
It’s a outstanding movie. People cheered in the theater where I went when he was battling the rival creatures. Best special effects ever. Cranston was excellent.
They could’ve trimmed a bit from the middle, but it was good.
I’m hoping I can go see this one.
That ‘nerd tears’ mc carthy guy, The reviewer on tht FNC said the same thing. The middle stunk and dragged on. I’ll wait for bluray
It was OK. Not bad. Not great. Good to see San Francisco trashed.
Someone set off a dry ice “bomb” here in northern Virginia in a Tyson’s Corner theater at a midnight showing today.
An obama boy critique?

or perhaps a Japanese critic protesting the American theft of a national icon
I saw it yesterday. Much much better then the last one. More on par with the older ones but with better graphics.
Cranston was very good, some of the other actors not so much. People in the audience clapped and cheered on several occassions which detracted for me.
I saw it yesterday with the family and liked it a lot. The reviewers hate it, possibly because of no gay characters and a positive depiction of the military.
Looks good, hoping to see it soon.
Was the spinning space turtle in this one?
I was big-time Godzilla fan as a kid, I loved this movie. I especially liked how they made him out to be the hero in the movie, much like the old 70’s Godzilla movies.
Did they at least have the good sense to put in the Blue Oyster Cult song Godzilla in this? I still can’t believe they missed that opportunity in the last Godzilla movie. It’s so obvious that should be the feature song in a movie if there ever was one, especially with a movie with the same name. Come on already!
Interesting reviews on this one. Since I'm good with Godzilla being a hero, I might step out to see this one. I love a good monster movie.
While I enjoyed it, I’m a huge fan of Godzilla going back to the original, this film needed more Godzilla. That being said I suspect there will be a sequel and I hope that we get to see a lot more of the big guy.
So was the Blue Oyster Cult song “Godzilla” featured in the movie as the opening song or the end credits? If not was it at least featured in an obscure spot playing on a radio in one of the scenes?
