50 Most Disappointing Movies of All Time: Godzilla 1998

Well it looks like the 1998 Godzilla movie has made yet another "worst of" list, this time coming straight from totalfilm.com.

Here's what they have to state about the movie:

"You could forgive the paper-thin plot, humorless jokes and ham acting if Godzilla were only half as thrilling as it promised to be on paper. Sadly, it didn't come close. As we said in our initial review, "what should have been the event of '98 feels like the last 10 minutes of The Lost World: Jurassic Park stretched painfully into a two-hour movie."

Alright the humorless jokes I could understand, maybe the ham acting...but saying it was like The Lost World: Jurassic Park is just too far!

No gymnastic pole-swinging going on here!

'Godzilla' sighting in Voorheesville

Okay maybe not Godzilla, but at least the closest cousin if one takes into consideration the 1998 film.

Over in Voorheesville, NY, a pet iguana called "Godzilla" has escaped its owner's apartments and had run up a tree.

The unique thing about this story is that...as of yet...this iguana hasn't come down yet!

Some firefighters attempted to rescue it but it just scurried even further up the tree, now resting at a 50 foot height and out of reach.

The neighbors think it's resting there not because it's scared to come back down, but because it enjoys the relaxing view and the heat of the sun.

No doubt the owner named it "Godzilla" after the 1998 film, so it's interesting to see that it too remains as elusive as the kaiju was during the film!

Godzilla Image of the Day

****This comes courtesy of io9.com****


Sorry for the delay again folks in postings.

I was actually away for a week doing some training for my job and just got back.

To help start off the week I thought I would post a hilarious interpretation of a Thomas Kinkade painting. 

For those not in-the-know Thomas Kinkade was semi-controversial American painter.

What made him so controversial was his stance on mass-marketing every painting he ever did, something that most traditional "artists" frowned down upon.

(If you've ever seen a painting of a cottage in some dentist/office building, chances are it's one of his).

Frankly it makes perfect sense to me to get the most bang out of your artwork. The fact that some uppity artists felt he "commercialized" his trade is tedious at best.

In any case this painting comes courtesy of Ron Lemen, who decided to paint a traditional "Thomas Kinkade" backdrop about to be invaded by Godzilla!
