That was the second Godzilla I've seen when I was a kid.

Am I the only one that thinks the 2000 American Godzilla was not that bad? Yeah it had its flaws but it isn't as bad as a lot of people feel it is.

1998 you mean. Although my problem is, that film tried to make Godzilla into a realistic animal. It's a radioactive beast, if you're sticking to the radioactive origins in some capacity, reality has no place for it.

The 1998 film was okay, but took Godzilla and seriously depowered him. He went from being near indestructible to being taken out by a few missiles... lame. His thermal-nuclear breath became nothing more than a puff of fire. The look was actually cool. But he went from King of the Monsters to Prince wanna be.

While I agree that the American film turned Godzilla into a bit of a wuss, I don't necessarily agree with this statement. A lot of "realistic" reboots use the tact of allowing just enough fantastic shit for the premise of the story to be possible, and then playing every other aspect as though it were happening in the real world. I find that in a lot of cases it works, and in better hands, I think it could have worked for Godzilla. I'm anxious to see where on the realistic-to-fantastic scale the new film falls.

What I like about the 2014 remake so far is that Gareth Edwards is trying to rationalize The Big G's existence, he's providing the rules and mechanics as to how he works-like building a Fantasy world with how the magic works.

Well, the one rule you absolutely have to throw out the window if you want Godzilla to work at all is the Square-Cube Law. Something Godzilla's size could never have his humanoid shape. His bones would crumble under his own weight, and I believe (someone good with physics can correct me if I'm wrong) that they would do so regardless of what the actual composition of his bones would be. In other words, you can't even BS it by saying his bones have some unknown elemental composition, because nothing in the universe could possibly support a frame like that.

Except I believe somebody has said the body mass would be enough to get that thing to exist.

Oddly enough those people who grilled the movie, liked the Animated Series.

With the animated series, the writers and producers of that show played their cards right. They had more passion than Roland Emmerich.

The body mass being "enough" is the problem. It's so much more than enough that it would crush the bones holding it up. Care to elaborate on what you mean? A link, maybe?

Well, more like muscle mass but I wouldn't say a link; just that someone on another message actually has a point

Has it occurred to anyone here that in order to even carry his own weight, at his size, he would need tremendous muscle mass, thus explaining his bulky appearance?

I love how We're All To Blame kicks in, setting the stage up for an epic extended battle.. eventually ending in a curbstomp.

That being said, quite a number of fans have read way too much into this scene..


edit: IIRC in the extended universe of Godzilla (Dark Horse comics or Godzilla novels, I can't remember) it was revealed that his bone density/structure has also been augmented by the radiation, so normal conventions regarding bone composition would not apply.

Would they go with that for the new film?

Actually, amusingly, Godzilla could exist in the real world as he appears in the movies.

He'd just need to be EXACTLY AS STRONG AS HE IS IN THE MOVIES. Keep in mind, Godzilla can regularly take stupid amounts of explosions and whatever else without even flinching. He's not exactly working on a biology that we understand.

I think it's likely they're keeping him indestructible. I mean, he is a force of nature.
