    Top Gun 2 is comin

    But here is my question... CAN IT FLY? Somehow I think we need a Kevin Bacon emoji here.

    Godzilla: King of the Monsters

    ah, very good points. I suppose if Godzilla showed a mouthful of teeth, it would be more intimidating.

    is it weird that out of all these posters I find the Godzilla one is the least intimidating?

    If they bring back the Tomcats, they need to have Phoenix missiles, I'm sorry, I felt really robbed with the original Top Gun because all they used were sidewinders. I don't even think they shot a Sparrow.

    Godzilla: King of the Monsters

    The scale is not too outrageous, you can actually scale out both the King and Big G very well since there is a visible Osprey V-22 right in between them. The wingspan is well known on that aircraft, and you can scale up both of these guys. The sizes seem to mesh very well proportionally with the Japanese series of movies. Which is pretty good. Godzilla is shorter, but more buff as opposed to the King, who seem to be larger, but more flimsy. You can kind of also infer Godzilla's size from movie one because he passed right under a Nimitz class carrier. Kong will have one big advantage over Godzilla in any fight, he is likely to be much more agile, and I wouldn't put it past him to go and poke G in the eye a la the Three Stooges. Kong's biggest defense is if Godzilla can't connect with his atomic breath. And big G's arms are also quite tiny compared to Kong's meaty paws. Oh, and did I forget to mention the lack of opposable thumbs.

    Godzilla: King of the Monsters

    I don't know, I remember larvae Mothra having a decent range weapon with her silk, entangling both the King and Godzilla in various movies. Sticky but effective. Imagine being squirted with all that white stuff, and you didn't know what it was, wouldn't you be the least bit perturbed. And if I recall, in the 2000s, Mothra had the ability to project some kind of energy beam from her antenna. Mothra is more a distance kind of monster, all the physical stuff, so dull... so dull. Mothra is much more refined than that.

    wow, that looks weird, this doesn't quite look like the traditional Mothra. At least not the fuzzy version that we're used to, but may be they are just going for a new look. The old version had big blue eyes, and tiny little legs. This thing has legs that are way out of proportion, and eyes ain't blue. May be its a re-imagining. oh, hey, I just realized, they threw Zhang Ziyi in this movie too, quite a long way from CTHD and RH II. Of course, we have to get someone from China in there to draw in the Chinese crowd. Otherwise, Legendary wouldn't be doing its job. But she is nowhere near as popular as Fan Bing Bing these days.

    Mothra was always the most out there of the bunch, with the idea of the fairies dancing and chanting Mothra. Most of the other monsters were easy to understand, either big animals, evil space cyborgs or some other such thing. I wonder if they'll take to the guardian of the earth routine with Mothra, that's how a lot of this was done in Japan.

    Actually, it would be interesting if they do a bit of a cliffhanger... may be have the real King win at the end of this movie. Then, Godzilla goes into training mode a la Balboa in the next movie with King Kong. Then come back in a fourth movie and have a rematch with the King. I know that won't happen, but I hope they don't kill of the King like what they did to the MUTOs in the first movie. Also curious to see what they'll do with Mothra and Rodan. The latter never got that much exposure after the first movie, always a sideshow. The former had its own movies, but is still just second fiddle to Godzilla and even the King.

    Bumblebee (Transformers... 6?)

    heh, if the trailers are any hints, it actually looks pretty good. But Bumblebee still looks too much like Bayverse Bee. I hope they don't just kill off the Decepticons. I like the idea of having some named guys Blitzwing around.

    Godzilla: King of the Monsters

    Yeah, the language is designed to make you feel like a schmuck if you're a human. It's like the character in question is a crazed environmentalist who would prefer to slag half the human population to "heal the planet." I think the right word is fanatic, one of those enlightened folks who think it's their place to tell others what's best for them. The funny thing is that this language is contrasted directly with Serizawa's comments about being Godzilla's pets. I saw it as another one of Hollywood's "messages," to be simply ignored by the guys who came up with it, because they are too busy snorting cocaine and objectifying women while in their private jets flying to Tahiti. Anyway, enough of the psycho babble... let them fight.

    Godzilla: King of the Monsters

    So, I had it right, put the Macross in place of Godzilla, and Valks in place of F-35s, and we have DYRL. And of course, the real "King" is Golg Boddole Zer. I really like the line about people being Godzilla's pets.
  13. The trailer was very nice in that it showed not too much in terms of anything that could be considered real spoilers. I think one thing Disney might want to consider is basically doing no more trailers after this first one. Unlike the other movies, this Avenger is in the very unique position of not having to build up anticipation. This little bit is enough, after all, everyone knows that Tony gets out of that capsule, and Renner coming back is not a surprise, only the circumstances would be interesting. They need to really build this up by doing nothing and get the fan base really whipped up that way and see if they can pass up the $2.5B mark.
