Godzilla Stomps on Santa Fe

The big green guy with the bad bad breath is back... and the Jean Cocteau has him.

SHIN GODZILLA, the first new Japanese Godzilla film in ages, is showing at selected theatres around the country for a limited run, and we're one of the theatres selected! (The only one in New Mexico, I believe).



It IS a limited run, though, and we have only two more screenings remaining -- Saturday afternoon at 1:00 pm, Sunday evening at 7:30 -- so if you want to get your kaiju fix for the year, go the Cocteau website and snap your tickets up now.

Who would win in a fight, Godzilla or the son of Kong?

Looking forward to this.
I am a GIANT (pun intended) Daikaiju-Eiga fan, and my local theater actually has it! I am going to see it tomorrow afternoon. :)

Radioactive Monster King FTW!
Here's a closer look at the beast:



That long-ass tail has to be a record!

OFF-TOPIC: As a writer, what is your opinion on Bob Dylan winning the Nobel Prize in literature, GRRM? Do you think it's fair to writers, since he's mostly a musician? Are you okay with it or deeply enraged?

I think it's great.

Poetry counts as literature, in my opinion. And Dylan has always been more a poet than a musician per se. He's not winning the award for his voice.

How can any one listen to any early dylan studio albums, Blood on the Tracks and "idiot wind" in particular and bash on his voice?

Subtitles
I noticed the Jean Cocteau is showing the film with subtitles. Is that the only way it is being shown in the US? Personally I prefer the subtitles but noticed other theaters aren't even mentioning it.

Re: Subtitles
I suspect so, but cannot say for certain.

Daikaiju-Eiga!!!!!
:)

I just got back from seeing it. Yikes. I like the direction they went with this one, it really is pretty scary at times. I wish they went with this direction in the Legendary version, but I'll take both, ty. Very disturbing designs going on here. Very well done Hideaki Anno and Shinji Higuchi, with additional props going to Shiro Sagisu for some cool scoring. It was nice to get a few slices of Akira Ifukube in there as well, which I'm sure were taken from the original recording sessions of Gojira. It gave it a real classic homage there.

It wasn't perfect, but it was great, and highly recommended!! I wish I was in Santa Fe seeing it at the Jean!!! :)

I saw it on Thursday, feeling fortunate that one of the theaters near me in NJ was playing the film. I quite enjoyed it :)

Gnaghi and Hodor
One slightly off topic question:

Was the character of Hodor in any way inspired by the character Gnaghi from the Italian horror-comedy Cemetery Man(1994)?

Both are huge but kind men with mental disabilities who can only say one word and have name that derives from that word. In the case of Gnaghi the word is "Gna".
