Looks pretty good.  I'll check it out unless the reviews are terrible.

Always a big fan of Godzilla, and hoping this erases the memory of the '98 movie, which was truley abysmal.

I recently watched Redemption (Jason Statham) on Netflix. Actually, a pretty good movie and definitely the best Statham flick.

Sorry, but that honor belongs to Snatch.  Statham came out of the gate very strong with those first two Guy Ritchie movies, and he was fantastic as Turkish in Snatch.  That movie was awesome, and it launched him into some good movies.  The Bank Job is also very good if you haven't seen that.

Roland Emmerich gave us a very cool movie in Independence Day, but the '98 Godzilla was just awful.  The design of Godzilla alone took me out of it.  As did Matthew Broderick, as well.

This new trailer looks pretty cool.  And the design of Godzilla is pretty cool from what you can see.  A big part of what I liked about the trailer was that as a viewer you couldn't get a sense of the full scale of Godzilla, that being due to his sheer size as well as the devastation around him.

Anyone have a chance to see Anchorman 2? I caught a showing this weekend, and although I went in expecting a crappy sequel, it might have been worse than what I expected. Rehashed, less funny jokes from the first one, and cameos and roles from all of the current and unfunny SNL cast members. The best parts we've already seen in the trailers, mainly Ron's black female boss and dinner with her family. I would recommend watching it on cable or Netflix or something for free though.

I didn't think the first was as great as everyone makes it out to be, so not really expecting much from this IF i go see it.

Aim for the eyes!  We're heading out to see Catching Fire tonight.  I hear good things so far.

I saw the Robocop remake this afternoon. I wish more people had given this movie a chance. It was really enjoyable. It shares a lot of the same thematic elements from the original, but it takes the story in a different direction so you are left with this feeling of "okay, this is familar, but what are they going to do different next?"

There are great references and send-ups to the original film. The scene where Robocop's creator shows Murphy what's left of him was cool.

Definitely not "high art" but worth seeing if you are a fan of the original.

Just my $0.02

It was ok.  Big fan of robo 1 & 2 so had to see.

What was left of Murphy was disturbing to say the least.  Glad to see ED209 back and in force - not just falling down stairs and shooting innocent people.  Was also nice to see Murphy back in his original non-batman colors at the end of the movie.

I would buy it for $1.00.

The 2:5 mark shows you the Boba Fett view of Godzilla!  :D

Maybe not the type of movie that is typically discussed here, but this has generated some excitement in our household.  First teaser trailer for Peanuts (2015):
