Egh. In all honesty, I have no words for how annoyed I am at this.
So... Heat Vision says that they've chosen a director for the new "Godzilla" remake... and it's Gareth Edwards, late of "Monsters." Makes perfect sense, right? Clearly, the only possible qualified candidate to helm the rebirth of the greatest of all movie monsters is the director of a laughably-pretentious sub-Syfy waste of time featuring two of the most awful lead characters in the history of the genre.
My burning need for a GOOD new Godzilla movie has my brain overclocking trying to find some sliver of worth in this... and it ain't working. "Monsters" (which was the subject of "Escape's" Halloween Show) wasn't technically impressive in any way that a hundred other semi-pro-with-an-FX-background projects aren't also, the actual directing is tremendously-uninspired and Edwards' own script was punishingly terrible... so, of course, he's helping to retool the script for "Godzilla" as well as directing it. FUCK.
If I didn't have a night of work to do, I would literally be pouring a stiff-as-hell drink and zoning out with "Donkey Kong Country" to wash this out of my brain. Thanks a bunch, Legendary Pictures...
