a disappointing, but not awful entry to the Godzilla franchise
I haven't watched that many godzilla movies (2 Japanese and the American version from 1998) but i still wanted to see this movie, and was really looking forward to it. Godzilla looked awesome, a little fat but awesome. The trailer really fooled me, because I went into this movie thinking that we would get a lot of Bryan Cranston and Godzilla. We didn't get that much of neither of them, and that really disappointed me. Though in the short time we got to see them, they were awesome. Bryan Cranston was really great, I really felt with the character and I got really exited about the rest of the movie. However, that did not last long, because his boring son became the main character and the movie suddenly went south.
Aaron Taylor-Johnson played a really uninteresting character, who I didn't care for. what annoyed me wasn't that they chose not to show that much of Godzilla, but that the two other monsters got so much more screen time. The two other monsters looked like sh*t, they sort of looked like a blend of the Cloverfield monster and a turtle. As I wrote earlier in the review, I didn't like the main character so it bothered me that he also got so much screen time. I just didn't get that invested in any of the characters, and it annoyed me because Bryan Cranston was sooo good and would have been a perfect main character.
Spoiler!!! The ending was very spectacular, there is a fight between the monsters which was really cool. And after watching Pacific Rim which had "hundreds" of monster fights. I was actually happy that Godzilla didn't have that many fights, because I felt that there was to many fights in Pacific Rim, which made them really boring. So the fight in Godzilla made a much bigger impact on me than any of the fights in Pacific Rim. End of Spoiler!!!
The movie was way to long, and most of the characters were really poorly written. It wasn't the worst movie I've watched this year, but I was really disappointed. Im not sure of what I was expecting, but I was pretty annoyed when the movie was over. This was a very mediocre movie 5.5/10
Thorin reclaims his place in movie history!
Last night I watched "The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug" and it was really good. The movie was exiting all the way throughout the 161 min run time. It was way better than "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey", though I did enjoy the first one as well. This movie is really action-packed and keeps you at the edge of your seat. The 3D looks great in this movie and there are a lot of great images. Though the "Lord of The Rings" trilogy is way better, so don't go into the cinema with too high expectations.
There are many cool characters. All the dwarfs are back as well, and THERE'S NO SINGING!! :) I wasn't that fond of the dwarfs in the first movie, but now they're starting to grow on me. Now I'm finding myself really caring about each and every one of them. The movie also introduced a new character to the Tolkien-universe. This character isn't written by Tolkien, but by the movie writers. The characters name is Tauriel, and she's a Wood Elf (Legolas is also a Wood Elf). She's played by the actress Evangeline Lilly, which is most known for playing Kate in the hit series "Lost" (2004-2010). I thought Tauriel was a great/awesome character. She's one of my favorite characters in the movie, so Peter Jackson made a great decision when he added her. She kicks ass all they way throughout the movie, and she has about the same fighting style as Legolas. It was really cool seeing another "Lord of the Rings" character, and I was glad to see Legolas again. Gandalf is cool as always, and is my favorite Middle Eart character. Gandalf has great the greatest quotes and is a very likable character. Martin Freman plays Bilbo perfectly yet again. He's the funniest character in the movie and you've got to love him. We also get introduced to Smaug (the dragon which lives in Erebor) played by Benedict Cumberbatch. His voice and performance really makes Smaug the greatest movie dragon since Falkor the luckdragon.
I really liked this movie and I recommend it to Tolkien fans and fellow fantasy lovers. It isn't perfect, but it's a great effort. The soundtrack is pretty good but quite forgettable compared to the other movies. Every moviegoer should give this "The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug" a try, and I give it 8,8/10
