Yes. It was fun to watch Pacific Rim. Nice setting, almost plausible, realistic effects and giant things bashing all shades of excrement out of eachother, ignoring the destruction caused to their surroundings. I felt like there was still hope for a new generation of proper kaiju films. Couple of weeks after that I just saw something online. Didn't bother to look or there was no title. A film trailer, starting with a US military figure giving his troops a pep talk about the importance of their coming mission. Ok, another American war film? Ok, Baby SEALS prepare to jump from a plane? What's that? Iraq? Afghanistan? Some black operation? Ok, kind of apocalyptic landscape? What's that in the smoke? ... And while I was trying to comprehend, what familiar feature I was seeing, I lost a few seconds. Then... that roar.

Now, it's been a while and I honestly haven't been this excited about a film coming to theatres since Jurassic Park when I was, what? 8 or 9?
Well, I went to see Godzilla and can't just describe the feeling. All goosebumbs, fondling my companion and quite possibly everyone around me... well, maybe little exaggerating a bit... but it was a good film and definately eye candy for every fan of the Godzilla franchise. The original I mean, we'll let that 1998 Zilla rest in peace. King of the monsters is back...
