How the hell am I the first one to talk about this? Amazing movie, the most visually stunning movie I've ever seen, must-see in theatres, in 3D. Unless you for some reason dislike giant robots fighting giant dinosaur-like monsters you are doing yourself a disservice by not seeing this movie.

I'm still on the fence about it. The fight scenes were great. The rest? Man, it was rough. I realize it was supposed to be campy, but god it was terrible.

Didn't really bother me at all, guess I was too distracted by the pretty effects. I'll admit there were a few scenes that were definitely cringeworthy but I just feel like the rest more than made up for it.

I went, expecting a Gojira clone, and that is what I got. I left satisfied that the 'Giant Japanese Monster' genre has a new high water mark.

Watched this the other day, in IMAX even, loved it! Yes there was a rather bad cringe scene [for me at least]... but I didn't let it ruin the movie for me.

DEATHFORCE: There are certainly crazy things you can do with this game, you can generate a world that is 3 times the size of earth before it starts having errors, although I dont know how long it would take to generate a world that large anyways lol

TRASSIN: I'm guessing about 21 days? Assuming you take a break every 7th day or so.
