Godzilla Sequel

SPOILERS

I heard that one of the Godzilla storylines they’re considering for a sequel is Monster Island from Destroy All Monsters. That movie was about Japanese government relocating the monsters onto an island to have them contained. If you can’t destroy something, at least contain them. In the movie, a race of aliens come to Earth, take over the island, and install remote control devices inside the monsters and staff of the island and use the monsters to try and destroy the world.

Course, the idea of aliens is probably not the right way. I picture the organization Monarch led by Dr. Ichiro Serizawa (my favorite character in the movie) had discovered other prehistoric monsters like Godzilla prior to the movie and had been secretly keeping them contained on an island. I’d like to see Rodan, Mothra, King Ghidorah, Anguirus, or Destroyah. My top favorite monsters. But the monsters escape the island and so our heroes have to once again bring in Godzilla to stop them. Also, I thought it would be cool that after this movie, that Godzilla could be more of a bad guy for a little bit. In the new movie, he was like a protector of nature, maybe Godzilla could see man has a destroyer of nature and tries to restore the balance. That way Godzilla could a villain for a long bit of the movie, then once the monsters escape the island, he turns his attention to them.

I think it would be cool. I’m sure they got better ideas up their sleeves.

Course, I’d like to see MechaGodzilla, but I don’t think it would be possible to built a robot replica of a 400 tall monster in this world. The money it would take to build one of those would take more then the national debt, unless they use aliens, if they go that route, which I don’t think they would.

How Prometheus (Really) Should Have Ended

I’ve said before, that I feel that the Prometheus sequel(s) will not lead into Alien because:

Ridley Scott seems adamant that he doesn’t wanna do Alien again, considering that they probably won’t end the movie with another Derelict crash, and because he referenced that the ship in Prometheus, the Juggernaut, and in Alien, the Derelict, were not the same ship but were “brothers, about the same age. Few hundred years, give or take” which is almost exactly the same thing that Shaw said when distinguishing how long the decapitated Engineer’s been dead. He seems to indicate that the Derelict crashed years before Prometheus.

Anywho, it seems Scott wants the series to go its own course without being bound to Alien, like say The Thing Prequel or the Star Wars prequels. This is how I think Prometheus should’ve ended and some of the changes I would’ve made to make Prometheus go its own course and tie up lose ends regarding Alien:

Not make them think Weyland was dead, just believe he’s back on Earth and probably dead since he was so old.

Have the planet actually be LV-426.

Reference that Fifield lost the map when they left the group. In the script, when they leave the group, he asks Milburne for the map, only for both to discover that neither had the map.

Have an Alien, or some different kind of Alien like the Deacon, come out of Shaw in the Med-Pod scene and have her destroy it.

At the end of the movie, here’s the kicker we go to the cargo hold of Juggernaut to see the Alien eggs, being a creation of the black liquid. The Engineer, who is actually THE Space Jockey, would rip off David’s head, kill Weyland, and attempt to use it to plot a course to Earth. Shaw would tell Janek to stop it and he accepts. This is what we’d do different. The Engineer is flying the ship, when an Alien births from his chest, the Ultramorph as they called it, the Engineer would die, but the ship is still active. David would contact Janek and tell him that he has a 2 minute window before the autopilot kicks in. The Prometheus will crash into the Juggernaut, and roll at Vickers and Shaw, it would crush Vickers and Shaw would survive. Shaw would lie on the ground crying after everything that happened. David would contact her telling her that he can pilot another ship. She would meet up with David’s head and she would tell him that she wants to go to the Engineer’s home planet, Paradise, to know why they created and tried to use the Alien eggs to try and kill us. When suddenly, the Ultramorph attacks Shaw where she kills it with Jackson’s shotgun (the guy who shot the Engineer after he awoke), where its body would leak acid melting a hole in the control room leaking into the cargo hold. The same hole that Kane would be lowered into. Shaw and David would take another ship and take off for Paradise. This is a combination of elements from the original script of Prometheus, Alien Engineers, and the final product so it could’ve been good.

Ties lose ends, and still let’s it go its own course. That’s just what I would do.

P.S.

Rest in peace Hans Rudolf Giger, the man who made the monster.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Reboot: Low Expectations (SPOILERS)

I just wanted to talk about the the new TMNT movie produced by Michael Bay. I have very low hopes for the movie due to the research I’ve read, if this research is correct

1st of all, I don’t know if I like Megan Fox as April O’Neil. Not that I have a problem with Megan Fox, I don’t mind her, I just don’t think she’d make a good April. I had heard that Jane Levy (Evil Dead) was considered, I could see her as April.

2nd, the CG doesn’t really look right to me, the Turtles look a little weird.

3rd, this is my main problem, they’re messing up the Shredder. I liked Shredder being Asian Oroku Saki who established the Foot Clan, who was the one who killed Splinter’s master and beginning their rivalry. There was just something about the confrontation between Splinter and Shredder at the end of the original movie that I really liked. “Now I will finish as I began with your ear!!!” “Death comes for us all Saki, but when you die, it will be………….without honor.”

 

 

SPOILERS AHEAD:

But in this, it’s totally different. In this, Shredder isn’t Asian, he’s played by William Fichtner, and the worst part that I really hate. That Shredder is……….an alien in a human robot suit. Based on the TMNT 2003 cartoon series. Please! I don’t know if this is true, I hope not, but it probably is.

 

SPOILERS END

 

The point is, I really want to love this, a lot, because I love the Ninja Turtles and haven’t seen a good live-action movie in a long time. But I don’t see me liking this, I may, because I like a lot of movies that people don’t like. But I don’t have high hopes for this, and I’m sad for that. Now I know how people felt about Michael Bay butchering Transformers, because I never saw the original Transformers cartoon, so I wouldn’t know if he butchered. Don’t judge me.
