FW MOVIE PICK: SHIN GODZILLA

Mansai Nomura in Shin Gojira (2016)

The “Reiwa Series” is a rather strange one for the Godzilla franchise to say the least; after the release of the American 2014 film, Japan basically decided screw it, were making another Godzilla Movie after “Godzilla: Final Wars”! Japan is plunged into chaos upon the appearance of a giant monster. The drastically new grotesque design to the titular monster took some getting used too, but it shows that Godzilla is really a far cry from his campy days in the franchise. They perfectly introduce Godzilla in the modern age and this is the first time he’s done in CGI in a Japanese film. I honestly don’t know what’s next for him in live-action since they transition to anime after this!
