Godzilla takes on an environmental cause in 1971 film

Most of Godzilla’s movies could be considered thinly veiled cautionary tales, whether it be in respect to the effects of nuclear testing or trying to manipulate the environment to fulfill the greedy desires of man. This is most prominent in the 1971 flick Godzilla vs. the Smog Monster (also known as Godzilla vs. Hedorah), where the big lizard does battle with a creature made from pollution. It has its moments, and veers from a darker tone to a more comedic one during the end of the movie.

Godzilla in the 60s- Conflict and more conflict

monsterzero2Much like the world around him, Godzilla found himself embroiled in one conflict or another throughout the 1960s. Outside of the theater, people only had to turn on their TV sets to witness one type of fight or another. The Vietnam War was ramping up, and the body count rose as US forces and the Vietcong clashed more frequently. The Tet offensive in 1968 proved especially bloody. Radical changes occurred worldwide as countries sought independence from long time European colonial rule. The civil rights movement was in full swing in the United States, as blacks and other minorities struggled for equality. Presidents and other leaders fell to assassination. 1967 saw Israel embroiled in the Six Day War with Egypt, Jordan, and Syria...

Bioshock movie back on?

bioshockCould the long talked about Bioshock movie be back on? It could be a possibility, as Sony Pictures has recently registered several domain names. Kotaku reported that Sony registered the domain names bioshock-movie.com, bioshock-movie.net, and bio-shock.net. Sony Pictures wasn’t originally involved in bringing the game to the big screen, but as all three of these domains have Sony Pictures listed under their registration information it now appears that they may be doing so.

Originally, Universal Pictures was going to develop the film back in 2008, and it was going to helmed by Gore Verbinski (Pirates of the Caribbean). Verbinski ended up backing out a year later, when production halted due to budget concerns and the fact the director wanted an R rating...

It was also the first time that the films weren’t radically altered between the Japanese and the American versions. The first film released in 1964, Mothra vs. Godzilla (released in the US as Godzilla vs. the Thing) marked the last time for the Showa era of Godzilla movies where Godzilla was portrayed as the bad guy (he would return to being a menace in 1985)...
