With the anticipation of the new Godzilla film, there has been constant debate over what Godzilla actually is.

Ok everyone says that he is a monster, but really what can he be defined as in our modern world? Let’s first start with the idea that fantasy fusing with reality has already crossed.

Is he a dragon? In my opinion no, only because he can not fly, but all other characteristics point to him being a dragon that can not fly. Is that possible?

What about a dinosaur? His anatomy could be described as dinosaur like, except the fact that dinosaurs didn’t have the ability to breathe fire. So I guess all this time he was living in a cavern deep under the Earth as the ages passed waiting to surface at the right time.

What if Godzilla is a dragon/dinosaur hybrid creature? That would make sense to me.
So tell me what do you think? What is Godzilla?

Godzilla_(2014)_poster

Godzilla starring Bryan Cranston,Aaron Taylor-Johnson,and Ken Watanabe,follows the story of nuclear scientists and the military as they discover,and battle a creature that unleashes a wrath of prehistoric proportions on a modern-day world.

The Warner Brothers and Legendary Pictures duo outdid themselves in the apocalyptic action adventure.

Monsters, and Dinosaurs Oh My!!

After the accident and death of Joe Brody’s wife in a Japan Power plant,Brody sets off on a 15 year study where he learns that all the strange geological activity in Japan is actually being covered up and is something else entirely different.

With the discovery of strange prehistoric creatures,a chain reaction of events leads to humanity fighting for their world.

Once the terrestrial creatures are unleashed, they destroy everything in their path to mate with each other. As scientists learn that the two are communicating with another creature, the race begins as the military fights to save the world from destruction. Another creature surfaces to claim American territory. As Godzilla reeks havoc upon American soil, he is threatened by the two monstrous forces. Godzilla battles the two and defeats the creatures and claims the title King of the monsters.

The story line was engaging, and every scene was directed and delivered in way that kept the movie goer interested. The destructive scenes were exciting and there was a balance of special effects and sound that united all the elements of the story.

The movie had a unique tone to it that subtly paid homage to the original Godzilla. It was a remake that did the original great justice and enhanced the story further. There are talks that a Warner Bros sequel is in the works, which will make movie goers happy. This was a movie that technology embraced to the fullest but wasn’t over shadowed by it.
I gave this movie 5 stars! A must see for Memorial Day Weekend!

Spider man 2 poster

The Amazing Spiderman 2, starring Andrew Garfield and directed by Marc Webb was truly AMAZING! This was one of the best superhero movies I’ve seen.
Without giving too much away, I will say that the movie is a continuation of the first film. What really makes this movie a first rate action film is the storytelling aspect. The writers focused on delivering Peter’s story in such a way that fully explains Peter’s connection to OsCorp and his real reasons for becoming Spiderman.
The rise of Electro and The Green Goblin were elements that added to the film. Andrew Garfield did a wonderful job reprising his role as The Amazing Spiderman, but Jamie Foxx’s portrayal of Electro was just outstanding. I had the pleasure of experiencing the film in 3D and it was such an entertaining experience that I will never forget. Electro made the movie. Foxx aka Electro is now on my list of the top 5 Superhero villains of all time.
The action scenes were superb and I felt like I was in the film living every moment as if I were one of the characters. This movie is definitely an engaging film with no dull moments.
The love story between Peter and Gwen was also nice, but it wasn’t an overwhelming element. Each mini storyline fit to the overall bigger story and came together very nicely. Even the Green Goblin’s story was interesting, and the whole story behind Peter and Harry’s past unveiled some very engaging plot outlines. OsCorp is the corporation of the future, but all things intended to help mankind don’t necessarily end in success. I hope an Amazing Spiderman 3 is in the works.
The special effects were out of this world, the scenes with Electro in the heart of Times Square were so authentic in its presentation. Also the scenes where Spiderman is above the city jumping from building to building were also amazing. I was completely swept away by this film.
The score was another element that was outstanding. The music played an important role, which kept the flow and mood of the movie in ways that increased the dramatic effect of the film. It connected to the emotion of the characters and impacted the audience in a way that drew you into the movie even deeper.
Peter’s adventure is just that, a great adventure that you will want to experience.
Overall I gave this movie 5 stars and highly recommend that fans see it in 3D. Spending the extra cash is worth it.
