Just saw the new version of Godzilla. I’ll not review it, here, nor provide any spoilers. You probably know most of the plot before the opening credits, anyway.

The primary effect on me (besides all the subsonics) was the collapsing buildings. We know that Godzilla destroys cities. In the old rubber suit days, the buildings toppled over like the cardboard boxes they really were. Today, computer graphics can mimic real events: especially skyscrapers “pancaking” like the Twin Towers. 


It’s been 13 years, but the flattening buildings and resulting dust storm were still quite unsettling. If you see the film, let me know if those scenes had the same effect on you, too.
