3d cg godzilla or zip-up godzilla

After watching the trailer of film simply GODZILLA, which premiers May 16 in US and in July in Japan, there have been surprisingly typical reaction among the Japanese wondering if the Warner Bros remake will be a tribute or an embarrassment for Japan’s monstrous legacy. The Japanese call it “kaiju” which have more imaginary, far-fetched traits than what they see as more mundane monsters like King Kong or Frankenstein. One of the collectors of Godzilla goods, Kazuya says that Hollywood version is no keiju. The technician Kazuya for reel films says in 1998 remake of Godzilla, directed by Roland put everything wrong about the new Godzilla from head to toe. Its arms limp at its sides, the scales on its back are too regular, its head is also very small, and the voice is all wrong. We remember that the 1954 big-screen Godzilla was an actor in a rubber suit with a zipper up its back. The Japanese consider it more terrifying and eye-catching than the Hollywood’s 3D, CG glory. In the original story Godzilla emerged from the Pacific Ocean, a mutation awakened by nuclear-weapons tested on Japan at the end of World War 2. Even though story from the Hollywood differs from the original story a bit having Godzilla stomping in San Francisco, instead of Tokyo, and confronting a flying monster that’s not in the original, but the film stays true to the spirit of the original in many ways. The director Gareth Edwards says he has done a hard work to produce an improved, more realistic Godzilla. “In our film, for the first time, we will really see the actual animal again”, he said. “I think if you went around the world, and showed the silhouette of Godzilla, he’d probably be the most recognized character from movie history,” he said. “Yet, as an adult, it’s hard to point at a film where that truly did him justice. Especially with the digital tools we have available today.” Edward says he grew up watching Godzilla films and has great respect for their deeper meaning, such as raising questions about nuclear weapons. According to Yumiko Yamashitra, 40, a welfare worker thinks Godzilla must be lovable “Kawaii”, or cute, is the way she describes it. She’s proud that it has gained a solid consideration and respect across the world but she says,” They make it too flashy. It becomes too American.” Haruo Nakajima, 85, was the first Godzilla. He says,” I’m the original, the real thing and the later Godzilla are mere imitations, If Godzilla can’t walk properly, it’s nothing but a freak show”.
