Who Would You Vote For as "Best Young Actor/Actress"?

7 December 2014 2:25 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Each year when my Bfca ballot arrives I stop in my tracks, stumped, when I get to "Young Performer". Categories that aren't Oscar correlative are often trickier.

Oh dear. How uneasy I feel..."

That's not because you're free of predicting (anyone trying to predict with their own ballot really ought to find a new profession -- criticism: ur not doing it right) but because it's a subsection of acting you probably haven't been discussing at all. You suddenly remember that you need to have been considering it with as much seriousness as you have made your other selections.

I imagine that Ellar Coltrane, the now 20 year old star of Boyhood, will be tough to beat since this category is for the 21 and under set. But even if the category were adjusted downward to 17 and younger (which we strongly support as a rule change -because it's always weird when an adult »

Second Opinion – Godzilla (2014)

18 May 2014 2:40 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Godzilla, 2014.

Directed by Gareth Edwards

Starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Cj Adams, Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen, David Strathairn, Juliette Binoche, Sally Hawkins, Richard T. Jones, Victor Rasuk, Carson Bolde and Bryan Cranston.

Synopsis:

The world’s most famous monster is pitted against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity’s scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence.

This latest incarnation of Godzilla may well do a lot of things right if you’re a fan of kaiju monster flicks and have ‘always wanted’ to see what would happen if the legendary creature went up against mankind and other monsters with a mega production budget behind it. If, however, the sight of this is not enough and, like me, you want at least some semblance of character to go with your action, then Godzilla will strike you as a massive bore. A Godzilla-sized bore, wreaking havoc and destruction on your patience whilst stomping all over your expectations. »

Film Review: Hollywood’s ‘Godzilla’ Misses, Mocks Ishirô Honda’s Main Warning Message

17 May 2014 12:42 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Except for the clear purpose of cashing in on yet another “Godzilla” remake, everything is happening for no reason. Worst of all, what is ensuing misses and even mocks the reason why Ishirô Honda originated 1954’s “Godzilla” in the first place.

Since then, times have dramatically changed and blockbuster Hollywood movies have a new boss to answer to: the box office. Still, we can’t forgive a film that focuses on CGI and big-city destruction while assuming we don’t care about a story and the honesty of where that plot needs to have its roots. The original “Godzilla” is an understandable outpouring from Japan when it was suffering in real life. America isn’t traumatized here.

Rating: 2.5/5.0

It’s insulting to audiences to think the eye candy fed to the two holes above our nose is more important than the brain that sits atop our head. Our minds have to be equally satisfied. »

Title: Godzilla Directed By: Gareth Edwards Starring: Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanabe, Bryan Cranston, Elizabeth Olsen, Carson Bolder, Cj Adams, Sally Hawkins, Juliette Binoche, David StrathairnGodzilla” is a little light on fully realized human characters, but what does that matter when you’ve got a 350-foot monster with an astonishing amount of fight and resolve to root for? When a mine collapses in the Philippines, Dr. Ishiro Serizawa and Dr. Vivienne Graham (Ken Watanabe and Sally Hawkins) come to check out what’s left behind and are shocked to find the radioactive remains of something inexplicably large.

Movie Review – Godzilla (2014)

Godzilla, 2014.

Directed by Gareth Edwards

Synopsis:

The world’s most famous monster is pitted against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity’s scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence.

Remember that teaser trailer for Roland Emmerich’s 1998 effort to bring Japan’s most famous monster back to the screen? Remember when it was about as exciting as the dying damp fish the titular mammoth fed on? If any movie of this size, scale and untapped gold mine of phenomenon deserved a redo, it’s Godzilla. In an age where superheroes reign supreme and CGI has reached new heights, surely the original towering god could get a great retelling? The answer, emphatically, is yes.

Utilising decades of stories and incarnations, Godzilla starts its action in Japan, as »

Trailer Trashin’: Up From the Depths, It’s Godzilla

25 March 2014 10:36 PM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Once again, dear readers, I have to begin a column by apologizing for an unplanned absence. I’ve been very busy with work and family stuff lately, and I didn’t have the time to deliver the quality columns you’ve come to expect and deserve. But on a much happier note, this week’s much-delayed edition of Trailer Trashin’ takes another look at my most anticipated film of the year, Godzilla.

Premise: An epic rebirth of Toho’s iconic Godzilla, this spectacular adventure pits the world’s most famous monster against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity’s scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence.

My take: As I’ve previously stated in this column, I’ve been a huge Godzilla fan since I was a kid. After the debacle that was the 1998 Roland Emmerich film, I had resigned myself to believing that I’d never get to see a »
