Personal Quote:

I think that films like 'Godzilla' are like the fantasy punishment for what we've done. The real punishment will happen if we keep going this route. Films like this remind us not to get too complacent - and that we should really try and fix some of these things that we've done before it's too late. See more »

Trivia:

His favorite films are Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977), Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977) , Apocalypse Now (1979), Baraka (1992), and Reservoir Dogs (1992). See more »
