The fuck is this?
An anatomically incorrect t-rex model from the late 80s
>this really is just the Raids Again suit after decades of rot

I want to hug it and pet it and feed it mice
Anno hit the mainstream with the rebuild movies and Godzilla is a heavily advertised project based on a beloved franchise so popular that even people who never watched a Godzilla movie know about him. Meanwhile, his live actions movies were very low budget projects
they were fucking great though
Anno once directed an Ultraman fan movie, but all I remember is that he played the titular character and the enemy monster was great.
Also he's co-directing it along the special effects guy of the Gamera trilogy and the Attack On Titan movie.
After the success of the 2014 Godzilla movie, the fame and excess got to him, and ol' Goji started chasing the dragon pretty hard.
He's trying to get cleaned up for this new Anno movie, but it's gonna be a rough production for him.
Haha...looks fucking terrible. Even worse than the last suit. Fucking weebs thinking that the last American Godzilla was terrible thinking that the Japs could do it better. Then they are given this.
>mfw weebs will defend this.
As far as feathered reconstructions of T-Rex go, I'm rather fond of what Saurian did with it. Not a over-the-top fluffball, but more like a feathery lion mane with bald legs and tail.
The one they found last year, a tyrannosaur from around 60 million years before T-Rex, not only had fossilized imprints of its feathers but also had the remains of some of its feathers, and the analysis concluded that those feathers were in fact pink. Look it up.
The only thing I can find close to mention pink T-Rexes are clickbait headlines stating that as a question.
The actual articles following those headlines are much more subdued and are about a plant-eating dinosaur found in Siberia from 240 million years ago who shows imprints of protofeathers, meaning feathers developed much earlier than the late-Cretaceous development most assumed.
This is from 2010 and is why there's been a huge surge in the "feathered dino" depictions lately. Here's more on that.
The only reputable article about a dinosaur whose feathers have been scientifically examined for color was this one:

>Godzilla will be manifest using several different techniques, puppets, animatronics, and enhanced by digital effects, with the main "suit" operated by three people.
Regardless of anything else, this ought to be interesting to see.
>Higuchi promised that this will be the scariest Godzilla yet, quoting the horrors of the real world, like 9/11, the March 11 tsunami, and subsequent Fukushima nuclear crisis having stripped the the world of its innocence.
He's got balls of titanium for him to even think this.
Considering some of the fucked up shit Higuchi tried to get into the Eva Rebuilds(like Asuka's face getting torn/burned off) and Anno's ability to be fucked up when he wants to be, I'm cautiously optimistic about this.
Yes, but people in this thread are actually thinking that Anno's Godzilla will actually be scary and not campy. It's like they expect everything he makes to be like Evangelion as opposed to just him playing with his toys like he did in Gunbuster and the Rebuilds.
If you mean this one, then yes. This is what Higuchi wanted to happen to Asuka in 2.0.
Since the title is, apparently 'Resurgence' that, along with all the scarring and misshapeness makes me consider it's a partially regenerated Godzilla after the Oxygen Destroyer from the original film.
While it's been pointed out right above you (>>13709764) that the original's bones were used to make MechaGodzilla, I can see how it would work.
With the failure of the experiment with the mechanized Godzilla, genetic and bio-engineering is turned to to craft a weapon of terror. And of course, that'd just be a "man plays God and reaches beyond his grasp" story. Nothing wrong with it, just a little cliche at this point.
Maybe this movie is a sequel to GMK? That movie ended with
Godzilla's heart still beating and slowly regenerating.
Consistently underwhelming. MG II is the only one I genuinely liked more or less from start to finish.
Heisei for me rests in that awkward gap between fun and seriousness, so most of it ends up being neither. Cool ideas and for the most part great monster designs undermined by overwritten, boring plots and often underacted characters spouting esoteric bullshit.
Not that anon.
I directly stated that Heisei MechaGodzilla is an exception to the rule, and while King Ghidorah can be argued otherwise (I think the story is horrendous and conceptually reeks of commercialism, with battles that have the least amount of weight right next to Godzilla vs. Mothra '92) however Destoroyah is largely another derivative Heisei film with some of the weaker SFX that don't live up to the standards of not only it's budget, preceding films, and competitors, but specific time frame in general. It's insanely dull movie with relatively weak set pieces too (Like the Krab scene meant to pointlessly mimic Aliens a few years too late)
The valuable aspect of that film would be otherwise strong suitmation and Akira Ifukube swan song, but I have Ifukube's concert CD so watching the film does nothing for me. Going from the wonderful SFX of Biollante to watching Godzilla's tail fall off and a load of literal Bandai toys sitting static on screen is unacceptable, and comparing not only the Godzilla films, but the Heisei Mothra trilogy to what Kaneko was pumping out with Gamera just shows how lazy Toho was in that time frame.
Maybe growing up with Honda and Tsuburaya in the video store just taught me standards, I dunno.
Mechagodzilla and Destroyah were good, but vs King Ghidorah is in the running for one of the single worst Godzilla films I've ever seen. Everything concerning the Futurians, to their protrayal, to their plan, to the parts when they went back to WW2, to the collective population of the entire planet being absolutely retarded in thinking they removed Godzilla from history, to the cheap terminator knockoff shit, to Ghidorah being made of 3 little furbies who just sorta hid away and didn't do anything for 50 year after they got merged into a giant Monster, the movie was terrible. The parts where the Godzilla and Ghidorah actually fought were good, but they were a very tiny percentage of the film.
>but vs King Ghidorah is in the running for one of the single worst Godzilla films
Heisei Godzilla VS. Mothra is way worst.
Even more salt in the wound is it being a "remake" of one of the best Godzilla films ever, creating a plot that Godzilla literally has nothing to do with and is just kinda there (reminds me of Godzilla 2014 lol)
You both raise good points, but don't you see how humanity is destroying this planet with pollution and cutting down forests?
Like, I think maybe that's what we should be talking about forever, regardless of the actual topic, just as the movie told us.
Humanity being the real monster that is destroying the planet is always on my mind. Sometimes I'm just reading some random SEED thread on /m/, and all I can think is "Damn, don't these people realize what they are doing to the environment?"
What the fuck man, thats even worse than what happens in EOE. Jesus.
This thing was in the script before the storyboard was drawn, and even got okayed, since Higuchi says it was even voiced, the point Higuchi made was that there were some things in the script that made him "this isnt Eva at all"(citing specifically poka-poka) so when he got to make this scene he tried to make it as gory as horrible as he could as he thought that was the intention, to make some contrast between thiose kind of scenes.
He was a little dissapointed later when he saw the final film and the scene dissapeared.
Its the scene in which the 9th angel captures Asuka, in those pages in the official final storyboards, we see that the scene was intented to be a little longer: some needles come flying from nowhere and stab Asuka´s face from every angle, then the needles pull out and strip her face off, showing that from inside her face is actually Kaworu´s face(who talks her in Kaworu´s voice), Kaworu says that she didnt smile so much before, and that change is scary. Asuka says that he is right, she is scared and wants to be like she was before, then she puts Kaworu/her face back and at that moment the base at Matsushiro explodes.
Higuchi and Tsurumaki were the only ones who had any balls. Unfortunately, Enokido was busy being a waifufag fucking around with the script, and Ootsuki wanted the film to succeed financially so we got that horrible ending.

Vs Gigan for me. First kaiju movie I ever saw as a kid and have been hooked ever since. There's something about that dark gloomy atmosphere during the fight that no other of that era captured right.
Shit pretty much all takes place at night, the backwards Scooby Doo plot featuring alien monsters wearing human corpse disguises, Godzilla's fucked up chain smoker voice.
It's campy, but not nearly as much as Megalon the following year.
I agree with this except for the fact that I think the android was hilarious.
A burned/mutated version of the Godzillasaurus.
