Ok I love Godzilla. I really love Godzilla. I love the concept of the utterly annihilatory moment of nuclear destruction being given form and being allowed to stretch that moment of oblivion into something humanly characterisable. I love the challenge this lends to the auteur. They must make a split-second horror an immersive experience without diluting it.
Godzilla is the complete and utter awe in destruction that we can only experience immediately before death, and he walks and he screams loud enough for you to know the results of the preceding events.
So few could even approach this, but I genuinely think Gareth Edwards has the vision and the ability. Monsters had me awestruck. Godzilla looks set to shake the world. Appropriate.
