I've been debating doing this for a while. Only problem is, I feel kinda guilty when I remove people from just about anything. I'm holding to some strict stipulations, though the most strict ones involve how active the account is, and whether or not it's been closed. If I have stopped watching you, please don't take it personally. D: I just had over 600 people that I was watching. I just made it down to the C's and I now have 575. I'll probably be keeping plenty of you though.

In other news, I'm pretty depressed. This is generally a pretty common thing for me and I've learned how to live with it without it keeping me down. But I recognize why it's been as it's been lately. Ever since I moved to Florida I haven't really gotten out much. I didn't even really get out when I lived in Mississippi aside from the occasional trip up the interstate to visit my best friend once every few months or to see family. Suffice to say, with the exception of my roommate, I'm sorely lacking for local friends. Really the closest one I can visit is over 100 miles away. (And even then I'm grounded until I get my vehicle registered. Gotta get on that soon. :/)

I'm not exactly sure what to do. I'm not a social person. I find it hard to talk to people I don't know in public, and when I'm in groups of people numbering more than 3 (including myself), I feel isolated and alone. I'm hoping to find out about some small, local conventions but I'm not even remotely sure how I'd go about that. Any ideas?

Godzilla Resurgence Thoughts

Tue Apr 26, 2016, 3:51 PM by Jetstreamx:iconjetstreamx:






So I JUST heard about this movie, and to be honest I'm not entirely sure how I feel about it. It's Toho's official reboot, and the first movie they'll be releasing in, what, 12 years? There's some degree to which I'm excited about it. I mean, that's rather natural. You could put the title of "Godzilla" on a movie about sentient Cheerios gleefully leaping down somebody's throat and I'd be obligated to want to see it. From what I understand this movie is aiming at being the scariest Godzilla movie to date. So far I've only ever had three that gave me that sensation. The original, the 84 movie, and the one with the longest most ridiculous name ever given to a Godzilla movie. If you can't figure it out, I'm talking about Godzilla, Mothra, King Ghidora: All out Monster Attack.

I think the issue I'm having is with the design. We haven't had a design that utterly muddled and confusing to look at since the Showa era. There's some very good mixed in with some very bad, and I just don't know how to feel about it. The body shape is actually one of the sexiest I've seen since the movies in the 90s. (I nearly said Godzilla vs King Ghidora only to remember that would just be horribly confusing.) Unfortunately when you move past the outline of the figure and actually look at the details it's largely a confusing mess of red and black with an over abundance of textures. The head is just hideous, and not in the way it's trying to be.

It is kind of fun, in a way, to see a suit again. Now, I don't want any of you to mistake me for someone who thinks one type of effect should be used over another. That argument is stupid and it's shameful that it's become one that's used to sell movies. However it can't be denied that the Godzilla in the Legendary Films movie looks very fake and computer generated. The thing is, Resurgence Godzilla really doesn't look any less fake. It's very obviously a man in a suit. It's very stiff and dead where Legendary Godzilla looks about as unconvincing as any other purely CGI character you've seen that isn't a robot but there's a much more organic quality in it's skin and an illusion of musculature that just doesn't exist in Resurgence Godzilla.

I really wish there was more merging of the two. This is honestly a problem that I had with Force Awakens. The way the practical effects were used where just very dated. Several creatures didn't look like creatures. They looked like people in suits, or some form of animatronic. It's really quite dumb that media production sometimes sees itself as having to limit themselves to one or the other. I think if you're going to continue to use a man in a suit then it's really for the best to use CGI as a supplement. Add blinking eyes; add movement to the lips and tongue; make the flesh less stiff so as to give the illusion of flexing muscles or breathing.

On another note, I'm also disappointed to learn that there's plans for an American "Godzilla vs King Kong" movie. There's a certain bit of novelty when it comes to the idea or even the Showa era but these are two franchises that I think are best left separate. I think plenty of this is due to size scale. King Kong is a 15 meter beast. Godzilla is a 100 meter menace. I would prefer it stayed that way. If they have to share universes, well that's fine, I just don't want this. There are plenty of other monsters for Godzilla to fight. If you really want a cross franchise battle then tell Toho and Kadokawa to suck it up and let you make a Godzilla vs Gamera movie.
