Ladies, I think we know why that big lizard is so crabby — sometimes you just have a God-damn Godzilla day

godzilla2014_fan_posterI think that should say “Queen” for our purposes, but, you know — I didn’t write the copy.

I have friends who worked on this film… And babies, you’re not going to hear anything but love from me. Check out the trailer!

And, is that piece in the beginning the Requiem (1963) (“Requiem, for Soprano, Mezzo-Soprano, 2 Mixed Choirs & Orchestra”) by György Ligeti that was used in 2001?

      It does look like so much fun – I think the release is set for May, but I’m not sure…

      This time Monster Island was a mix of stages in Vancouver and locations in Hawaii…

    Yes, Vickie. That was Requiem (Atmospheres) in the trailer. I’ve already rev’d for this — and want to purge the bad taste from the ’98 movie out of my system 😉

      Okay, right now it’s all about ME, but when I saw the mighty monster in this clip I thought,”Wow, scaly winter skin — I IDENTIFY with that character!”

    After the filming was completed last year here in town, Godzilla decided he likes San Francisco and has joined such Hollywood luminaries as Robin Williams and Sean Penn and bought a house here. He lives up on Mt. Olympus not too far from Lane. Word around town is that when he goes shopping at Mollie Stones he leaves the place in shambles. “Clean up on aisle four!”

    Oh cool! And is it just me, or is the more original-looking ‘Zilla back? That makes me a happy kitten right there.

      You’re right! At a certain point ‘Zilla started to look like it had a face lift ;).
