Maybe we can pm each other the review links that we find without fear of deletion??


Well in the past we've been able to discuss leaked stuff (an example recently would be the airport scene from Wonder Con) we just can't actually provide links.

I know discussion of the scene though was fine. No one stopped it.


Well maybe if one of us finds something they can tell us her but pm us the link. or is there a (PM Gustapo) as well?


No you can discuss whatever you want in PM. Those conversations are private. Don't worry there is no Legendary early review police out there that will come after you.

Hey Chris, on a scale of 1-10, how excited are you?

1 being super excited, and 10 being astronomically excited, of course.

How come when it's clearly stated, WHY do you have to persist? We're following an embargo. That's the end of it. Not that hard to understand.


Because nobody ever told me that only stating if the movie was good or not was "against Legendary's rules" ( :roll: )

You know the Draglord, Gawdziller, and the other mods are doing a good job of taking care of the leaks so you should relax and not deal with all the stupidness.

Also a lot of members of this board are younger so they might not get the concept of an embargo and the industry rules that are in place. Might want to go a little easy on them.

They clearly aren't since your still around after spoiling something for me. -_- And since Godzillaman is still around after being chewed out for posting spoilers. After being warned. Several times.


and since im still around.

but all jokes aside, when is the prescreening at? midnight?

I'd like to note that A. I'm coming off of a leave of absense due to an injury and was taking it easy for a while. Since I don't think you guys wanted me modding you on painkillers, I refrained from banning all of you outright just because I was in lala land and it would have been funny. B. I'm not sure what post from Godzillaman of Godzilla21 you're refering to that's spoiling the movie, since I just decided to jump back in. Where exactly are they spoiling it for you? Instead of complaining about it on the board, maybe you should be, I don't know, reporting them.


A month ago I was posted an accidental spoiler and Living Corpse saw it, got mad, and started calling me names. It was an honest accident and I apologized to him. It seems he's still holding on tight to his resentment though...

tmz live was doing something on Godzilla earlier today. It was nothing special they were just discussing (in their silly joking manner) Godzilla's new appearance in comparison to older incarnations and made the mistake of stating that Godzilla is 50 years old.

If Chris were to break an embargo he'd be blacklisted. Frankly, and to no offense to any of you, but y'all aren't worth it. Everyone who agrees to embargo is entrusted to have good ethics, Chris should be commended for showing that his ethics are strong.
Sadly, I must make you aware that anything I say is my opinion.

That would be fine if the members here weren't explained to ad nauseum about what an embargo was. We've been dealing with embargos for this movie for how long now? 6 months?

Maybe some people weren't here 6 months ago. Some people may have.... You know.... been doing other things like working, going to school, having a girlfriend/boyfriend, hanging out with friends. Not every patrols these boards 24-7.

Actually, they did. Time and time and time again.


I don't remember them verifying if they were talking about ALL reactions or just reviews though...

I am fully aware of the embargo, but it just seems so stupid that Legendary won't even let one give a simple reaction (like if they said "the movie is awesome! Go see it!"). So don't claim that I am just some kid who likes Godzilla and does not know anything else

Well that makes sense. But it still does not seem logical on Legendary's behalf to keep good reviews a secret

But anyway, when exactly is the screening today?

Just stay tuned to the TK twitter account and the boards Godzillasaurus. You will see fun stuff in no time.
