I want it now. That looks skreeonking awesome! Oh do you know what happened to that Universal Studios Japan Shin Godzilla ride? I can't find anything on it.


It was less of a ride than a 4D show (which does mean moving seats, sprays of water, wind, etc.) in their special theaters. They rotate new shows in every year as part of their Cool Japan section. I was lucky enough to attend while it was operating and also saw an Evangelion and an Attack on Titan show.

I have a bunch of coverage of the USJ Godzilla stuff.

Wow.... it's already been two years since the release of Shin as of today. I still remember the hype and speculation leading up to it. Man those were the days.

11 hours later: No one really? I thought more people would reflect on this mastapiece of an edition to the franchise after a whopping two years :D No? Allllllrighty then.

I wonder if Anno and Sagisu had Kaoru Wada's re-recordings of the Godzilla (1954) soundtrack available to them during the production of this movie. If so, it was kind of a missed opportunity. Compare the original recording to the latest one.

There’s so much I love about this film, but I think my favourite pet might be actually be near the beginning when the situation starts to become more serious - the way the music (Persecution of the Masses, I think?) moves the tone from one of comedic satire to one of unfolding tragedy is honestly masterful.

^This guy right here!
I think that the movie is one of the best takes on Godzilla in a long time, not just because it goes back to the darker, scarier roots of the series, or because of the insanse action scenes--though those were certainly part of it--but because it was the most effective uses of Godzilla as a metaphor for the mistakes of both science and society in a long time.

And I agree with you, KC, the music is one of the best parts; to me, it's got some of the best music from classic Godzilla movie soundtracks and Shiro Sagisu, himself! The original pieces are what really makes the movie for me: Persecution of the Masses sends shivers down my spine and sets the tone for tragedy, Who Will Know is a haunting blend of horror and sorrow, and Under a Burning Sky (which I feel doesn't get enough love) gives off a great "impending doom" feeling.

Plus, this movie won the Japanese Academy Award for Best Picture! How many kaiju movies--no, how many monster movies, of any kind, have gotten that kind of recognition? This movie is just a great example of everything I love about kaiju movies: you can have intellectual discussions on social-political issues AND giant monsters blowing stuff up with lasers.

So when I first saw Shin Godzilla, I thought it was just ok. But after taking a look at it again and comparing it to the Anime trilogy, MAYBE I didn't give it as much credit as I should have. It's REALLY grown on me.
