Shin Godzilla

Shin Godzilla ★★★★½

A god incarnate. A city doomed.

Shin Godzilla made me realise how wasted Hideki Anno is with Evangelion. Unlike Eva, Shin Godzilla benefits from his madcap direction and writing. Utterly gorgeous, brilliantly scored by Shirō Sagisu and yes he does remix the originally extremely bland Decisive Battle (again from Eva) into something quite amazing. If you haven't heard this new remix search: EM20_CH_alterna_01 you aren’t going to regret it. Godzilla's redesign is by far one of most unique designs of the whole series and genuinely creepy from start to finish. Stunningly photographed, brilliantly acted and with a genuine threat missing from a lot of the Godzilla films, this is probably up there with one of my all time favourite Kaiju films.
