I write screenplays for a living and I've always said there is no way I would ever write a Giant Monster movie. It's hard to write a compelling story when you have the reality of not just the integrity of writing a good story, but also appeasing the producers who are trying to gain only one thing from a production like this: $$$$ from the teens and tweens along with the older generations that followed such a storied franchise. This is one flick, after watching the trailers and knowing the men involved with the script (quality story-makers) that I have genuinely high hopes for. I, like many of you have been a fan of the giant lizard for decades since childhood. From the serious renditions to the dozens of campy lozenges of hard candy we swallowed in our fandom- loved 'em all. After that Matthew Broderick vehicle a dozen or so years ago came out- I cringed when I heard a rumor of a producer trying to recreate the magic, but I will open myself to this experience. Full Imax, 3-D, and a giant tub of popcorn with as many extra squirts of butter as I'm allowed. Like Nolan's Batman series- I hope this film proves to be a renaissance of the Giant Monster draw to the theaters. I believe that would be nothing but a good thing. **and it would make those bottom-of-the-barrel producers make more terribly wonderful cheap monster movies I like to put on (on mute) on multiple screens while I'm hosting parties. Great, insane ambience.
