see, quoted again!
this is why we can't have nice th- I mean this is why we don't post the Rosie pic! 1 pic becomes 5 pics and the horror keeps going. It's a scab people can't help but pick at. And no one ever goes, "oh my bad that's horrible let me delete that!" no it just keeps going and going. Damn you Meatwad this is all your fault! it's on all 3 pages now!
bastards, the lot of ya.
Just imagine rolling over in bed, where there's been a "changing of the guard" and it's burly ol' Rosie. Them crisp and curlys winding up in your nose?
"Hey, there's a tattoo of a old sailing ship!"
Well, Mal.. It is about horror.
Thanks guys, I might as well go dip this laptop in the sink...Damn....Yuck!
A good movie along the lines of "The Monolith Monsters" is "The Magnetic Monster".
That Rosie picture isn't horror. It's obscenity.
I grew up with Moona Lisa and Science Fiction Theater in San Diego. Saturdays wouldn't have been the same without her!
posting Rosie should be a one day Ban.
Moona Lisa is alright, but really.....Elvira...
That was the main problem... we all only saw about half of those....!!! Muuummmmyy!!!
yes its about horror. but what you did is evil
Gotcha....Im still an analog dude. Im learning though....
I have to mention these two guys as well. As much as I loved Chilly Billy,Hoolihan and Big Chuck Show(and later,it became Big Chuck and Lil John) was my reason for Friday nights. They had some of the best skits,man....not to mention the occasional Road Runner cartoon in-between. Damn good fun
One thing I really like about the original Gojira movie, a lesson they'd forgotten by the second movie,..is that the monster is always scarier when it's not well lit.
They kept him more as a dark shape, and your imagination filled in the details. He was a behemoth on the horizon.
Even by the second movie (Godzilla Raids Again,..not terrible, but not great. It was very rushed due to the unexpected popularity of the first movie,) he's kind of well lit and slightly more comical in that they showed him sort of stamping his foot and developing a bit more personality, showing human emotion like frustration. He's scarier in the original (and in Shin-Godzilla) because he's just a monstrous behemoth pretty much indifferent to humanity. He just crushes through it like it's not even there.
That attititude of almost indifference I found more frightening.
In later films he gets downright comical. Sort of dancing and becoming a lot more kid friendly. By then he'd become a national folk hero or something and kids loved him, so they toned him down and made him sort of humorous.
Years later you'd see pretty much the exact same thing happen with Freddy Krueger in America. In the first movie he's a murderous dream monster and he's kept in shadows,...by later films he's doing impressions, is very well lit and bright (they even made his clothes cleaner and brighter) and he's very comical.
One of the reasons I liked 2016's Shin-Godzilla is because like the original 1954 Godzilla,...he's a large almost indifferent monster. Human weapons have pretty much no effect on him, and he just "fcks sht up" largely because it's in his way. And when he gets pissed he takes out entire neighborhoods at once.
Much like we humans can kick an ant-hill while walking and pay it no mind,..Godzilla would knock a building out of his way and kill everyone inside,..just because it was in his way.
I like that the original is a dark film and a true horror movie.
Agreed. This is what I like about the old B&W movies. It's what you didn't see that scared you the most. It was the shadow in the darkness that traumatized us as kids!
Nightmare on Elm St 1...scary
Nightmare on Elm St 2,...scary
but by the time you get to pt 4,...he's in the sunshine being silly and wearing bright clean, clothes?
Not scary. Silly.
That's a problem I have with a lot of CGI monsters too, they're too well lit and bright. It'll be a Werewolf in a dark hallway at night,..but it'll be lit up in blue light and you can see every hair and detail in HD.
Something growling and drooling in the darkness is a lot scarier. It taps into our primal fear of the dark.
Completely agree with you both.I dig the way they capture the peoples faces just screaming in terror without anything showing as to what they are seeing. Scared the hell outta me as a kid,not knowing what it was....and when you did see it,it wasnt bathed in light,it was dark. Watching this again(I do have it on dvd,but,downloaded just to see how to do it)this morning,the damn theme song and those terrible sounding booms of his foot steps still give me the ole goosebumps.
the original Roars are the best too imo.
in later films it becomes more of a Screech than a Roar.
...and there's a weird ...idk how to describe it,..after sound? To the original Roars. They're like, "Rooooowwrrrrr--skreeONK!" ...that skreeONK noise just does it for me.
you can hear it in Shin-Godzilla too...
I've actually spent more time than I'd care to admit trying to figure out how to replicate that sound with a guitar. I keep thinking I need a floating whammy bar.
Or the whistling/laser "NNNNNGGG!!" sound when his fire-breath becomes atomic...
very cool sound effects in a lot of these movies. They really help sell what's happening on screen.
No doubt,brother!! I seem to remember reading that his roar was originally done with a cello? Might be wrong,though. Man,Im digging this here thread Mal!!!
Is this a creature? Was to me
