      Ugliest Godzilla ever

      The IP of "Godzilla" has also been smashed, but there is still a mysterious magic that attracts the audience to the pit, and "New Godzilla" also has a lot of slots. The film does not have too much foreshadowing, and goes directly to the theme. When I saw Godzilla, who had not fully evolved, climbed onto the land, the mentally retarded monster face, I couldn't help laughing at this moment, the scene that should have been seriously replaced is in I laughed again with the slightly exaggerated...

      Japanese Scar Literature

      "real. "Godzilla" is good-looking, and it is very good-looking in Japanese anime. If you love Japanese culture, you can read the overtones of the movie. Otherwise, in terms of sensory stimulation: the CG showing Godzilla has mixed reviews, the performance of the super-strong cast is not completely excellent, and the deliberate arrangement is also a little too monolithic (especially the political attack and defense part is a war of words), but The oppression of the metropolis in the face of a...

      A patriotic blockbuster at the textbook level of Neon

      [About the movie]
      I think Neon people made this Kira as a national image propaganda film, not funny.
      There are so many literary dramas, just want to show the audience their decision-making process and the work attitude of the officials and the people in times of crisis. Old bureaucrats, mothers-in-law, mothers-in-law, if it takes time to spread the word, it will kill you. Young people will be sent into battle. A hundred schools of thought contend in roundtable meetings. ...

      Various memes in Shin Godzilla

      In chronological order, if there are any omissions, welcome to add

      1. There will be an endless irony about Japan's real politics, not much table.

      2. The fast-paced BGMs that have appeared many times all come from EVA.

      3. The stalk of the Japanese-American beauty ambassador is Asuka (Asuka Japanese-German).

      4. The incomplete Godzilla is to pay tribute to the early special film, and it is deliberately rough. It is estimated that the movie theater is full of...

      A "chill" caused by a Godzilla

      A Japanese-style "chill" caused by a Godzilla, a super-long "easter egg" made of crazy words.

          How to evaluate Toho's latest "Godzilla" 2016? One word - "rotten"!

          Below, the author divides into four parts to briefly analyze this "political propaganda" for everyone:

      1. The development of militarism

          Churchill once commented on "World War II" - "This is...

      Looking back at this film in the new crown era can be said to be a masterpiece. It can make Godzilla comparable to the quality of the Cold War era political drama (in fact, it is also the main drama of the original "Godzilla"). A lot of speculative goods that Hollywood has shot for the Olympics in recent years (all kinds of walk & talk with extremely fast speech and the idealism in the second half are almost more expensive than Sorkin). However, there are a few montages in the middle that are...

      89/100, simply Perfect! ! ! Anno Hideaki has made a drastic innovation to the traditional monster special photography, replacing the leather case with CG but retaining the texture, the special effects are really cool, and the three evolutions directly climax. //Using the monster as the appearance, it practiced Godard's "make a movie politically", completely catastrophic Godzilla in the post-311 period, and the purpose of stripping his personality is to focus on human personality,...

      Meeting domineering, from the domestic bureaucracy to international political relations, has references, although it is slightly flat, but such a huge ambition and a practical explanation of the current world, it is really a monster film or an anti-monster film that has never been seen before; CG made The leather case texture of Godzilla combines tradition and modernity, revealing an indescribable beauty; at the same time, the director keeps reminding the audience with Decisive Battle: Hello...

      The first half of Shin Godzilla, rooted in the post-Fukushima era, does an excellent job of showing political coping in the face of a crisis with Sorkin-esque rhetoric. However, after entering the Japanese theme bridge in the second half, this kind of political operation is worrying. The new version of the beast is still built on the mistakes of the past, and the film's solution is to freeze it for future outbreaks. I'd like to see how long this coexistence can...

    Behind the scenes gags

    In 2004, Ryuhei Kitamura called this film the last work in the series when he directed " Godzilla: The Ultimate Battle ", but the 2014 US version of " Godzilla " was a global hit at the box office, prompting Japan, the hometown of Godzilla, to restart the already silent film. A 12-year-old classic series.

    Evaluation action

    "New Godzilla" basically echoes Gareth Edwards' films, focusing more on examining human society, not simply satisfying the audience's eye addiction to disaster special effects films. Although "dialogue is higher than destruction" in the way of expression, "New Godzilla" is still a wonderful and exciting movie, which more realistically depicts what might happen when Godzilla really appears and instantly steps the city to ruins . The...
