With a lack of anything serious to complain about in regards to the upcoming Godzilla reboot byGareth Edwards, Japanese fans are knocking the new version of the beast for being a little on the chunky side for their taste in radioactive lizard king.
As a lifelong fan of the lizard king, the one that didn’t front the Doors, I have been waiting with baited breath for the upcoming Godzilla reboot for what feels like an eternity. Godzilla has always been my favorite Japanese import, edging out both Gundam Wing and Asahi Super Dry, and ever since I became one of the millions of ten year olds to be extremely disappointed by Sony’s underwhelming stain on the franchise I have been hoping that Hollywood would redeem itself by giving the legendary monster the epic re-imagining he deserves.
As the quality of CGI creatures developed over the years I thought a big budget remake was inevitable and, following the success of films like Cloverfield and Monsters, I knew it couldn’t be far off. Incidentally, if you have not seen Edwards’ Monsters yet I highly recommend getting on that train because it is a artfully-crafted love letter to fans of the genre. Plus it will make a brilliant appetizer before seeing Godzilla.
