    I’m not too fond of fairy tales but this was such a well written and edifying article, I read it twice. Thank you!

    Nicely done! I’ve seen In Bruges several times but never thought of these ideas. I would love to see your breakdown of Seven Psychopaths if you ever have the chance.

    Wow, this is a whole unexplored genre of movies for me. Thanks for opening my eyes!

    Yep, as if the characters weren’t bad enough they make stupid decisions like this. In Jaws Brody’s son provided the motivation to hunt the shark: so everyone’s child could be safe.

    In Godzilla, Ford Brody’s kid is just a piece of luggage.

    Ha, not extremely high expectations there but agreed :).

    I have seen Pacific Rim multiple times and will probably see it again someday. I have no interest in viewing Godzilla again.

    But there is some sappy human interest story elements in PR; it’s just better done than other monster films.

    I think they shut out Cranston to provide more drama. Jaws had the beach closure and money problems to provide drama while we didn’t see the shark. Godzilla needed something early on – I’m guessing.

    Here’s hoping Godzilla II learns from its first film’s mistakes.

    The monster design is a very interesting discussion between Godzilla’s voluptuousness and the MUTO who look akin to Cloverfield’s monster. I’m more of a fan of animatronics like the early T-Rex scenes in Jurassic Park, which still look realistic.
