I've seen the Japanese version of Godzilla and it was awesome. I haven't seen the Roland Emmerich remake, but judging from the reception and footage from The Nostalgia Critic's review, I'm not missing out on anything. Hopefully this one will be good if not great.
I loved the book and I think it would really work as a movie. I just don't see any reason why this book shouldn't be adapted into a movie. It also has the author's son as the screenwriter, so I'm very positive this movie will be great.
Jim Carrey is the obvious reason for why I want to see this, but another reason is because I also like the comedic premise. It's also directed and written by Steve Oedekerk who has yet to make a movie I didn't like.
I loved the first one, but I am not too sure about this sequel. First of all the Farrelly Brothers haven't made a good movie in years and even if they have I would still doubt that they would remember what made the first movie funny. I still am anticipating this movie, but I just have my doubts for this one.
I can see why this series would need a reboot, but I can understand why people are doubting this movie. The teaser doesn't look bad but I am pretty sure this is going to be a PG-13 Robocop movie and a movie in that series does not need that rating. It could still be good, but I'm not keeping my expectations too high.
