They've also each appeared in three or more Ghidorah films.

^also true! :D

The criticism of ShIn Godzilla that Rando Yaguchi is not a compelling protagonist is invalid, because Rando Yaguchi is not the protagonist of ShIn Godzilla - Japan is.

*drips mic*

*crosses arms, leans against the wall with a smug, irritating, unearned smile*

I stand by it though. Shin Godzilla is about collective struggle against a prominent threat where a whole society comes together, wherein Yaguchi is only the most prominent face.* The character arc is Japan’s - it goes from a shocked, impotent country to one that is energized, confident and looking to the future. And I’ll take it a step further and say that Gojira is the same way. That is also a collective struggle throughout which a nation comes to terms with its terrible inheritance, and its place in a terrifying new world of destructive potential. Serizawa is but one face of that broader idea.


*also Rando Yaguchi is a badass bureaucrat and I wish every government was just filled with Rando Yaguchis.

Yaguchi for president! :D

...And senate! And cabinet! And legislator! And governor!

Sorry. :lol: I'm dying at the thought of a UN meeting where everyone is Rando Yaguchi, each with a dude who just hands him a water bottle whenever he gets stressed out.

Even though I dislike the final the look they gave Shin I gotta say I loved the fanart we got before the movie came out. I especially LOVE this look and i wish it could be used sometime. Maybe as the basic design for the new series.

I'd like to see a scene in a Godzilla film where a group
of people are riding horses to escape from a kaiju.

I think that would be really creative & cool to see...
mainly because its never been done before.

Despite my absolute fanaticism for vs. Biollante, I actually have no idea *which* piece of music is the infamous 'Bio Wars.' (Partly because I someday dreaming of buying that volume of the Godzilla Perfect box set, and listening to the full soundtrack for the first time that way, so I don't want to look it up on youtube and hear it for the first time that way.)

If you can remember it, it's the track with the electric guitar in it.

When we rewatch, I'll keep an ear out.

It's the piece playing during the prologue with the agents fighting over Godzilla cells, the main two guys trying to get to the Saradian embassy as the evacuation happens, and during the final confrontation with SSS9 after he shoots Dr. Shiragami.

There's also two versions on the Perfect Collection: one with the infamous guitar and one without. The much maligned one is the former.

I kinda like Bio Wars, it’s just so 80s and stupid. I grin like an idiot everytime I watch that scene. Plus I genuinely like how it samples the Godzilla Theme.

Bio Wars sounds like something out of a modern Sonic game.

Bio Wars is a highlight of the franchise. Sometimes being dumb and cheesy is not only okay, but right.

I unironically like Bio Wars and don't find it dumb or cheesy at all. I think it's one of the best compositions in the franchise's musical library; possibly the best non-Ifukube theme.

It's easily on par with the best of Masaru Sato's score from Godzilla vs Mechagodzilla.

Bio-Wars is awesome, it's a piece of Godzilla music that has notes being shredded by a guitar solo.

Bio Wars doesn't fit at all with the rest of Biollante's soundtrack but it's alright in spite of it's corniness.
