Shin Godzilla — A Review

October 15, 2016

Of course I saw Shin Godzilla. Twice. I’m sorry it was only in the theater for 3 days. I’m even more sorry those three days were Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday so it didn’t even get 1 decent weekend to rack up the ticket sales and prove how much of a fan base there is here in the US for Toho’s King of the Monsters. Still, Shin Godzilla brought in over…

Shin Godzilla Coming to Theaters: One Might Even Be Near You

September 16, 2016

That’s right Godzilla fans. Shin Godzilla will open at select Theaters in the US on October 11, 2016. I already have my ticket and let me tell you, an overnight trip wasn’t out of the question. Fair disclosure: As near as Godzilla Momma can tell, this movie is subtitled and not dubbed. It has broken box office records in Japan and is being hailed as a masterpiece. I’ve seen some…

Shin Gojira/Godzilla Resurgence TV Spot

July 16, 2016

Yes there is a television commercial for Shin Gojira/Godzilla Resurgence. Take a look at this. Godzilla still seems raw, scarred. My sense is that this Godzilla will be more the monster than we’ve been accustomed to. More like the original Gojira was. I must confess that at first, when seeing those first images of the new design, I was a little uncertain about the eyes. They seemed small and somehow…

SH Monsterarts to release Shin Gojira Figure

June 28, 2016

SH Monsterarts is slated to release a Shin Gojira figure this year. I, personally, really like the new Godzilla design. Rumor has it that Shin Gojira (Godzilla Resurgence) is a full on reboot of the franchise. I actually think this Godzilla looks like he’s recovering from full body burns from a wildly radioactive source. This Godzilla, unless I miss my guess, is still raw, hurting, on radioactive fire. Take a…

Godzilla Resurgence Official Trailer!

April 14, 2016

So this was released while I was at work. This is just gorgeous and I cannot wait for this to hit the theaters. I must confess–this looks amazing! It looks like Godzilla got nuked and he is not amused. I so hope they do a US release. How exciting! And there is likely to be some sweet Godzilla swag after this beauty hits the theaters.

The Criterion Collection Presents Godzilla

January 18, 2016

The Criterion Collection Blu-Ray release of Godizlla is the original Gojira uncut and un-Americanized. It comes with an informative booklet that is very well done as well as commentary. There is no English version, (unless you watch the included Americanized King of the Monsters version) you get the options of subtitles or no. I like it better with subtitles anyway. The original actors get really into their roles while the…

Shin Godzilla/Godzilla Resurgence

December 14, 2015

First, despite my excitement about a new Toho produced Godzilla, as far as I have been able to find, there is no US release date as of the time of this publishing. I eagerly await the US release. Also the nerdverse appears to have had mixed feelings about the new Godzilla design. It’s not as clean and, dare I say, pretty looking as some of the latest Godzillas. But I…
