GODZILLA (2014) review - The Showa Must Go OnGODZILLA (2014) has hit theaters, and for months (years for most Godzilla fans), potential audiences have been anticipating a return to form for the Lizard King - a film that will revisit the themes of the 1954 original and deliver a brooding, apocalyptic story of destruction and doom.Instead, what we got could best be described as a sequel to THE TERROR OF MECHAGODZILLA (1975).Trust me, I wouldn't begin a review with a hyperbolic, attention-grabbing statement like that without explaining it. For the moment, let us turn back the clock and toss out a quick recap of the film's plot. Obviously, this review will contain a metric crapload of SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS, but you'll complain anyway, so let's get on with this.After a mysterious event in 1954 regarding the Castle Bravo nuclear test and an unknown giant organism, the story jumps to 1999, where two scientists, Dr. Serizawa (Ken Watanabe) and Dr. Graham (Sally Hawkins) are investigating a massive underground tomb in the

It's going to be called "Skull Island," indicating a prequel movie. Legendary will be involved with the project, and it will be released in 2016.But here's the more interesting Kaiju news: details regarding the sequel to Godzilla 2014. Nothing on a release date, but three Kaiju are hinted to be in it: Rodan, Mothra, and Ghidorah. At first, I thought it was just a rumor, but it's popping up all over the Internet when I look it up.
