Around the Network

As a Godzilla fan since childhood, this looks awesome.

I love how ominous and grounded it seems, and the effects look stunning for a Japanese film. (They have tiny budgets compared to Hollywood)

Really hope this gets a release here in Australia; the factr it's coming out in the US just a month after Japan is a promising sign.

Going for the more intimate, claustrophobic camera view of the monster ... Quite liking where this could go. Hope it gets a release here in Canada 🤞

Interesting. Hope it comes to Netflix quickly!

The full trailer is out now:

Just got back from seeing it at the IMAX, and holy moly it was incredible.
This is the darkest, scariest, and most human Godzilla film since the 1954 original.
Like all the best entries in the series, the character serves as a vehicle for exploring deeper themes; it's a film about trauma, both personal and cultural, and about confronting and healing from it.
This is a film I would recommend not just to Godzilla fans, but to just about anyone. It's not just a great Godzilla movie, it's a great film period.

Saw the movie last night and my god, absolute 10/10! Toho still showing the world how to make a Godzilla movie!

I watched the movie this afternoon too and I think it's my new favorite Godzilla film!

How to describe what I just saw? This is not a campy fan service movie revolving around epic monster fights and an endless stream of nostalgic self-references. This is a passionate human story that uses a giant monster as a metaphor for post-war trauma. Minus One isn't the first Godzilla movie to do that, but is clearly distinguished by its embrace of a populist ethos. In most Godzilla movies, the major human characters are government officials, businessmen, military forces, reporters, etc.; the usual movers and shakers and influence-makers of society. In this one, it's just regular people for whom the world, and even their own government, seems to care nothing. It falls to them to try and defeat Godzilla on their own somehow.

This is not a cerebral picture at all, but rather an earnest and heartfelt plea for catharsis and humanity. In a way, watching it felt a bit like watching some Clint Eastwood drama except, you know, it being Japanese and featuring a giant monster. It's dramatic, it's emotional, it's patriotic, it's straightforward, and it's got clear heroes and they're underdogs who you can't help rooting for with all your might, and little dashes of humor in all the right places. I stress the emotional part here though because I cried through like half the movie. Okay okay, people know I'm a wimp that way, but I think that anyone with a soul at all will shed at least a few tears watching.

If there was anything I disliked about Godzilla Minus One, it was the very last scene in the picture wherein it turns out that...

surprise, Godzilla's not actually dead!

Part of you probably knew that was going to happen because, of course, there is more money to be made here, but it shouldn't have because it kind of undercuts the message of the film a bit. I encourage you to just pretend that this concession to commercialism isn't there, as this is otherwise a straight-up cinematic masterpiece.
