On November 15, Kevin was joined by @FyodorFish, @Regi_S, @AronDej, @VouxCroux, @carcarr819 and @Stellar143 to live-tweet Roland Emmerich’s reimagining of Godzilla. Here’s a log, complete with time-code for your home-viewing pleasure.
kevincarr: Turkey #5 is… “Godzilla,” Roland Emmerich reimagined this classic Japanese monster in NYC. #kevincarrtweetsturkeys
FyodorFish: I think I want to see a flick called CENTROPOLIS (Emmerich’s production company). #GreatGodzillaLiveTweet
kevincarr: GODZILLA 01:30 – The Komodo Dragon and Iguanas… ain’t happy about the nukes
kevincarr: GODZILLA 02:10 – This opening sequence brought to you by the Three Mile Island Board of Tourism.
kevincarr: GODZILLA 02:40 – Where’s the kaboom? There was supposed to be an earth-shattering Kaboom!
AronDej: @kevincarr Classic always useable line!
VouxCroux: So wait, Godzilla is just an iguana? #kevincarrtweetsturkeys
Stellar143: @kevincarr There it is! LOL
AronDej: GODZILLA (all opening credits) I remember not understanding this at age 4 and 5. Because I didn’t know about nukes then.
FyodorFish: GODZILLA opening credits: now that was bombastic/boombastic score (by David Arnold [Casino Royale]).
AronDej: @FyodorFish Its a good score.
Stellar143: @kevincarr GODZILLA – I don’t understand all the orange. Ew. #GreatGodzillaLiveTweet
AronDej: GODZILLA 4:10-ishey – Well, they’re Japanese, so of course they’re gonna be watching Sumo wrestling!
kevincarr: GODZILLA 04:30 – South China Sea… We’re gonna need a bigger boat.
kevincarr: GODZILLA 05:00 – Five minutes in, and Emmerich is already blowing shit up. Love it.
Stellar143: @kevincarr GODZILLA – Nothing better than sumo wrestlers up close on tv. #GreatGodzillaLiveTweet
Regi_S: Godzilla 4:00 ooh Sumo wrestling and possinle top ramen
FyodorFish: GODZILLA 5:19 Tuna boat: it’s that Asian dude from Die Hard and Letha Weapon (I think). Bearded, balding dude.
kevincarr: GODZILLA 05:35 – Enter Matthew Broderick singing “Singing in the Rain.” And the movie comes to a screeching halt.
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 5:03 – What was that noise?
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 5:39 Could there be a more perfect song Matthew is singing?
FyodorFish: GODZILLA 6:00 Our ostensible hero, introduced singing Singin’ in t/Rain off-key. Not very heroic. Worms, yum.
kevincarr: GODZILLA 06:40 – This movie would have been so much cooler if MBroderick electrocuted himself right about now.
Stellar143: GODZILLA 06:40 – Why must there always be a close up shot of something moving… and gross.
AronDej: GODZILLA 6:45 – and cue hint at romantic interest.
kevincarr: GODZILLA 07:30 – Hey it’s Aaon the Secret Service agent from 24!
FyodorFish: GODZILLA So when is King Kong showing up? Wait, am I watching t/wrong movie?
VouxCroux: @kevincarr I may be dating myself, but I was in Ninth Grade when this movie came out. But yet I’ve not seen it. Bef (cont) http://tl.gd/ulib
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 07:30 – trying to figure out how to speak to a white man. Awesome.
kevincarr: GODZILLA 08:25 – Jean Reno… he who saves teh movie from Matthew Broderick.
FyodorFish: GODZILL 8:10 Frenchy Frenchmen speaking French. Ah, but that’s Jean Reno, t/other half of our heroic duo.
kevincarr: GODZILLA 09:10 – “Gojira”? What a great title for a movie!
kevincarr: GODZILLA 09:40 – Nothing says badass soldier like Kevin Dunn… the dad from Smanatha Who.
Regi_S: @kevincarr could have given him an early out from the Sarah Jessica Parker marriage
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 09:10 – fire makes everyone say something. Really.
VouxCroux: @kevincarr I would have the French in my movie for no reason at all too if it meant I could have Jean Reno in it. And Kevin Dunn. MB sucks!
Stellar143: GODZILLA – Matthew wants to know why he’s there. Always the most important question.
kevincarr: GODZILLA 11:00 – Where is it? I can’t find it in this huge f-ing footprint.
FyodorFish: GODZILLA 11:00 Cue wonder and awe moment: Godzilla’s footprint. Yawn.
Regi_S: @kevincarr can I switch to the cartoon with the baby godzilla on a boat
Stellar143: GODZILLA 11:15 – Enter speachless look here.
kevincarr: GODZILLA 11:45 – I will give Emmerich credit. He cast geeks and dorks as scientists instead of hot people.
AronDej: GODZILLA 12:20ish Of note, “Gojira” is a cross between two Japanese words: gorira (ゴリラ, lit. “gorilla”), and kujira (鯨 (くじら), lit. “whale”),
FyodorFish: GODZILL 12:20 More Gojira, Gojira. Just in case you weren’t paying attention (I wasn’t).
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 12:15 The French released a tape of the submarine going down. Awesome.
kevincarr: GODZILLA 12:50 – Maria Pitillo in a miniskirt and hooker boots. Another thing that makes the movie watchable.
FyodorFish: GODZILLA 12:50 Here comes t/romantic interest. Whatever happened to Maria Whatshername? Right, GODZILLA happened.
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 12:45 – More rain! The best part of the movie.
VouxCroux: @kevincarr BTW, when he opened up his briefcase and we saw those pics, it’s the piano and violins that let us know they are romantic.
VouxCroux: @kevincarr And the gum on the cardboard cutout! She’s such a rebel!
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 13:35 – Yay a girl jumping up and down in excitement.
AronDej: GODZILLA 13:40 – Good evening, I’mmm Kent Brockman!
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 14:10 – You can have the job if you have sex with me. Maybe.
Regi_S: Godzilla 14:10 – Give head to get ahead
AronDej: GODZILLA 14:40 – Perhaps this explains why @gmanreviews is not live tweeting with us right now?
kevincarr: GODZILLA 15:25 – She thinks I’m cuuuuuuute!
FyodorFish: GODZILLA So wait, did t/hero’s new boss just hit on him? She’s cute and all, but she’s still his boss.
AronDej: GODZILLA 16:00-ish – Yeah, because a Japanese freighter ship that was in the pacific, is going to wash up in JAMAICA
kevincarr: GODZILLA 16:25 – “Get those people out of there!” What do you mean “those people”? French racist.
Stellar143: GODZILLA – Where are we now? That’s a big boat.
carcarr819: GODZILLA: I like Jean Reno, but I’m really glad we have subtitles on this flick.
kevincarr: GODZILLA 17:25 – The title says “Eastern Seaboard.” The entire eastern seaboard?
FyodorFish: GODZILLA 17:40 Oh cool, another scene involving a fishing boat. Can you tell I’m excited? I am.
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 17:15 Dark music. Evil stare!
AronDej: GODZILLA 17:45 – Roland, don’t even try to reference Jaws with this scene, that movie is way to good to have anything to do with this film.
kevincarr: GODZILLA 18:20 – They shoud sing “Gee and I wanna go home… I’m tired and I wanna go to bed… I had another drink about an hour ago…”
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 17:57 Who is slowing us down now?
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 18:47 – Something is definitely slowing us down.
kevincarr: GODZILLA 19:55 – Let’s hope Kate Winslet floats by on a door to save these guys.
FyodorFish: GODZILLA 20:00 is at its best (best being a relative term) when we don’t, you know, actually see GODZILLA.
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 19:19 – Just let it go! You can’t hang on to it while we’re sinking, geesh.
Stellar143: @kevincarr HAHAHA
AronDej: GODZILLA 20:10 – This is probably the only point in the movie that has some sense of suspense
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 20:11 – woah. That was big. Was it the lochness?
kevincarr: GODZILLA 21:00 – Matthew Broderick trying to speak science is like Tara Reid trying to recite Shakespeare.
FyodorFish: GODZILLA 21:00-ish Our hero in exposition mode. Pretty much sums up his entire purpose.
Stellar143: GODZILLA – Nerd moment. 60 million years and it chooses 1998!
Regi_S: Godzilla 20:55- If it was hiding up your ass you would know
kevincarr: GODZILLA 22:00 – “The City That Never Sleeps”… I didn’t know Las Vegas was near the ocean.
Regi_S: Godzilla 21:35 – Ferris Bueller figures it all out
kevincarr: GODZILLA 22:50 – This scene brought to you by the SEINFELD diner in its darker days.
carcarr819: GODZILLA 22:30-Seriously? Does every New Yorker say “tawk” ?
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 22:40 Nice definitely gets you nothing.
kevincarr: GODZILLA 23:20 – Awww… It’s Nick. My sweetie worm guy. She just wet herself.
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 23:10 Blonde Moment.
FyodorFish: GODZILLA 22:30 Almost every scene centers on or is related to fish so far. Deal w/t fishing industry?
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 23:46 MORE RAIN. This movie rocks.
VouxCroux: @kevincarr So I’ll bite: I’m interested to know why they love each other and aren’t together. If the answer is “B/c (cont) http://tl.gd/ullh
kevincarr: GODZILLA 24:30 – A million fish in the East River, and Godzilla eats a worm on a hook?.
carcarr819: GODZILLA 24:22-Enter old guy trying to be cool with the backward hat.
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 24:31 Boy he’s got a bite alright. Let’s fight
FyodorFish: GODZILLA 25:10 That old dude can run pretty fast for being.. and old dude.
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 25:07 and here are the drunk men thinking they are seeing things. until they realize they are.
kevincarr: GODZILLA 25:45 – And now for a sequence of destruction, Godzilla’s feet and a ton of “oh shit” looks from New Yorkers.
Regi_S: Godzilla 25:30ish – Godzillra
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 25:20 Let’s ask everyone what it is! Someone’s GOTTA know.
VouxCroux: @kevincarr 26:15 the guy in the truck w/headphones doesn’t know what’s happening until he gets picked up. i want a pair of those!
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 26_07 Let’s sit and watch as a giant reptile comes strolling up.
Regi_S: Godzilla 26:20ish – He was just after his some fish. See what over fishing causes
FyodorFish: GODZILLA 26:40 Hello, Mayor Ebert. Nice bit w/the umbrellas. Reminded me of Hitchcock’s FOREIGN CORRESPONDENT.
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 27:00 The ground is shaking. No reason to be alarmed.
AronDej: GODZILLA 27:20 – Yeah… that looks a bit to familiar as of now.
kevincarr: GODZILLA 28:00 – That’s right, people. BArt Simpson is the receptionist.
AronDej: GODZILLA 28:00 – As the nostalgia once critic said… “What is this? A Simpsons reunion movie?” All we need is Dan and Julie.
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 27:35 – Finally, a boat for all the water.
AronDej: GODZILLA – 24:00 to 28:00 is probably the best scene in the movie.
kevincarr: GODZILLA 28:30 – In case no one knows, the name Nick Tatapoulis is an homage to Patrick Tatapoulis.
AronDej: I’m gonna have to take a break from the live tweet! Must eat dinner. So hungry.
Regi_S: Godzilla 28:20ish I’ll stand here and not hear the big fucking lizard outside my window
kevincarr: GODZILLA 28:50 – “Is that a parade?” Yeah, the NYC gay pride parade got really out of hand and aggressive this year.
VouxCroux: @kevincarr they better show the receptionist again…i missed it. and i don’t wanna rewind.& how weird is it we still use the term “rewind?”
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 28:20 – The girl who doesn’t want to sleep around, but jumps up and down and sucks slowly on a sucker talking about Romeo.
carcarr819: GODZILLA 29:00is – A parade? In the rain? Seriously, how dumb are you?
FyodorFish: GODZILLA 29:00 Our heroine is a bit whiny and screechy, methinks.
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 29:07 – Are you alright? Let’s stay right here and keep asking the same question.
kevincarr: GODZILLA 30:00 – Ha ha! He’s using video tape.
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 29:48 I would so run after a giant reptile!
kevincarr: GODZILLA 30:30 – hank Azaria is da man!
FyodorFish: GODZILLA 30:00 Confirmed: t/new Godzilla is a workout fiend/gym rat. Seriously muscular armature.
VouxCroux: @kevincarr I wonder if “Moe” just shat himself.
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 30:35 – he didn’t step on me, but, I’m gonna stand there anyway.
carcarr819: GODZILLA 30:00 – Good thing it’s raining. Nobody noticed that Hank Azaria pissed himself just then.
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 30:48 – Still standing there. At least I’m laughing.
Regi_S: Godzilla 30:20 – Victor might have just crapped himself
FyodorFish: GODZILLA 31:00 Wasn’t that blond-haired dude on MELROSE PLACE? Looks familiar.
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 31:32 We lost the giant Reptile. He disappeared as a statue in the middle of NYC.
kevincarr: GODZILLA 32:30 – “There is a dinosaur loose in Manhattan.” Even in this movie, that sounds totally stupid.
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 32:32 – Dinosaurs are still alive.
Regi_S: Damn missing Willie Nelson & Asleep at the Wheel on Austin City Limits for Godzilla
kevincarr: GODZILLA 33:15 – This girl wets herself anytime she sees her ex-boyfriend on a news broadcast.
kevincarr: @FyodorFish Yes. Good call. Also the dimwitted Tom Scavo in DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES
Regi_S: @kevincarr But a giant gorilla on top of the empire state building totally believable
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 33:39 More running… Oh I’ll do it myself.
kevincarr: GODZILLA 34:30 – Ouch… that cuts a little close to the bone.
carcarr819: GODZILLA 34:40 – “Worst disaster since WTC bombing? Wow, that sure dates this movie, doesn’t it?
AronDej: @carcarr819 Just what I was gonna say.
VouxCroux: @kevincarr 34:37 “Since the WTC bombing.” Perspective gained. Being partially sarcastic.
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 34:41 No one is “happy” there is damage.
FyodorFish: GODZILLA 35:00 “As if New Jersey and Long Island are any refuge…” Here, here (and I’m from Jersey).
Regi_S: Godzilla 34:50ish – No not looting the disney store
kevincarr: GODZILLA 35:50 – The homoerotic Siskel Ebert homage was funnier before the whole cancer thing.
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 34:20 – They’re my sweets. Godzilla will eat you if you touch them.
kevincarr: GODZILLA 36:35 – Who carreis a goldfish on the subway? Seriously?
FyodorFish: @carcarr819 Alas, it does. That was t/first one. I lived in NYC at t/time, worked a few blocks away when it happened. Yep, dating myself.
VouxCroux: @kevincarr wait, why is the insurance guy putting a bug on the Mayor? hmmm.
FyodorFish: GODZILLA 37:32 Did they just slag American coffee? Typical (for t/elitist French).
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 36:35 – An ex is usually good for one thing… Well for information in her case.
Regi_S: Godzilla 37:20 Ooh Donuts
kevincarr: GODZILLA 38:00 – How the hell does a giant dinosaur hide in a Manhattan building?
VouxCroux: @kevincarr You’re in NYC & you can’t find a croissant? Jean Reno is gonna kick some ass! Finally!
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 37:46 – We evacuted the city for no reason?
kevincarr: GODZILLA 38:40 – Tom Scavo: Badass!
FyodorFish: GODZILLA 39:00 So where exactly did all that dirt go? It’s gotta go someplace, right?
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 39:15 – Godzilla made it past Quarantine. No wonder swine flu was such an outbreak!
kevincarr: GODZILLA 40:00 – MB “drew out” earthworms? I thought he electrocuted them and forced thme out of the soil
VouxCroux: @kevincarr Finally, some real application for that earthworm shit.
carcarr819: GODZILLA 40:20-Nobody cares about your damn earthworms! IT’s all about the radiation you halfwit!
kevincarr: GODZILLA 40:40 – There’s something “fishy” going on here. Bwah-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!
FyodorFish: GODZILLA 41:20 French are staying at a place called “Tel”. Hmm, more digs at American coffee. Damn ungrateful…
kevincarr: GODZILLA 41:40 – Ah, the French are coffee snobs too. HI-larious… sort of.
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 41:16 it’ll take hundreds of people to find Godzilla now!
VouxCroux: @kevincarr & aren’t we allies w/the French? why are they infiltrating us then? Can’t they just ask that we share?
kevincarr: The kids didn’t make it far in GODZILLA. http://pic.gd/1a31a1
FyodorFish: GODZILLA 42:40 I just ate dinner and I’m hungry again. Must be all the fish.
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 42:10 – Of course the plan will work. He’s a worm guy! He knows all about reptiles.
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 43:00 That’s not enough fish!
FyodorFish: GODZILLA 44:00 What’s this about man-holes being uncovered? What kind of movie am I watching anyway?
kevincarr: GODZILLA 44:00 – We want him to smell the fish! Where’s Tia Tequila when you need her? #awnohedidnt
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 43:48 MORE RAIN. Woohoo.
carcarr819: GODZILLA 43:45 – Ebert scoffs at the genius plan of luring Godzilla with fish? Is he coming up with a better plan? Just like a politician!
Regi_S: Godzilla – They should find the little kid in Japan with the whistle to call the Space Giants. I’m sure Goldar could take Godzilla.
kevincarr: GODZILLA 45:10 – The road is cracking. Are we in 2012?
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 44:37 I have to point out all the manholes, just in case you can’t see them. Growl.
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 45:06 enter creepy music.
kevincarr: GODZILLA 45:40 – How much do you think Godzilla could benchpress?
FyodorFish: GODZILLA 44:48 Rack focus, rack focus… And here, finally we get to see t/new Godzilla in all his non-glory.
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 45:32 – The pavement is splitting between my legs. Should I move? Nah.
carcarr819: GODZILLA 46:10 – Wow, now that’s hi-tech MB, taking your pics with a disposable camera.
VouxCroux: @kevincarr Is it me or is Godzilla ripped? & Oh yeah, when the ground starts splitting near you…RUN ALREADY!!
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 46:00 Let me wind my camera.
kevincarr: GODZILLA 46:50 – Smell the fart acting right there by Matthew Broderick.
Regi_S: Godzilla 46:10 – Smile for the picture
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 46:44 breath mint, anyone?
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 47:51 Godzilla totally fell for that one.
Regi_S: Godzilla 47:17 – Sushi
kevincarr: GODZILLA 48:35 – First the Met Life building. Now the Flatiron. Roland Emmerich vents his spleen on NYC landmarks.
FyodorFish: GODZILLA 47:30 Man, is this Godzilla a steroid freak? Methinks t/answer is yes.
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 48:21 Bigger guns… We need them now, after, we’ve known how big he was the whole time.
VouxCroux: @kevincarr So Godzilla, basically a big iguana, eats fish? Makes no sense.
FyodorFish: GODZILLA 49:35 Godzilla vs. helicopters in a fake looking city? Nod to Toho’s Godzilla?
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 48:18 – Lost the giant reptile, again. We’ll follow him though.
FyodorFish: GODZILLA 50:00 Helicopter pilots can’t shoot for sh*t. Oh right, Godzilla’s cold-blooded.
kevincarr: GODZILLA 50:20 – And now the Chrysler Building. Trivia: Armageddon destroyed this as well in the summer of 1998.
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 50:20 Oops. Missed him.
VouxCroux: @kevincarr there goes the Chrysler building. Too bad it didn’t fall straight into someone’s eye like the Space Needle did in the Simpsons
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 51:14 – I gotta bad feeling, man, really. Not sure why though.
VouxCroux: @kevincarr Oh no! Those helicopters are destroying a model of New York!! Someone stop them!
FyodorFish: GODZILLA 52:00 Guess helicopter pilot didn’t realize he could, you know, fly out of Godzilla’s reach? You know, skyward?
kevincarr: GODZILLA 53:35 – And Godzilla humps a building. Like we needed to see that.
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 53:14 – He lost him. Several times. This time, not so much.
kevincarr: GODZILLA 54:25 – That red umbrella is kinda conspicuous… and possibly a product placement.
VouxCroux: @kevincarr 51:00-53:00 ummm, you’re in a helicopter…why don’t you climb and increase your altitude? And leave him to hump his building.
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 54:14 – The way to a reptile’s heart… Feed him and NOT shoot at him. That may work.
kevincarr: GODZILLA 55:05 – I have these tests that have you pee on a stick. Will that help?
VouxCroux: @kevincarr 54:20 ‘and your girls about to wet herself again.
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 55:02 Pregnancy test for reptiles… Awesome.
kevincarr: GODZILLA 56:10 – You left without a phone call, so I’m mad. But then again, a hottie like you had sex with me, so I’m okay with it.
FyodorFish: GODZILLA 56:20 Eight years ago? Umm, no, more like 15 years (based on t/actors’ real ages at t/time).
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 56:25 – Yay I see the love of my life, my ex boyfriend, and I walk away slowly without telling him.
VouxCroux: @kevincarr tea? This is America goddamit! Even the FRENCH are drinking coffee!
kevincarr: GODZILLA 57:45 – He’s pregnant. He’s a tribble.
FyodorFish: GODZILLA 57:50 Uh-oh, Godzilla’s pregnant, so er, he’s not a he, he’s a hermaphrodite! I think.
kevincarr: GODZILLA 58:20 – “It makes perfect sense.” No. It makes no sense. At all. Ever. Worm guy’s an idiot.
VouxCroux: @kevincarr 58:00 “Where’s the fun in that?” And Audrey’s a ho…dreams answered.
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 58:02 – Like, totally, I’m smarter about science than my scientific worm ex boyfriend.
FyodorFish: GODZILLA 59:00 So dude’s been carrying around her photos for 8 years? Seriously? Dude needs/needed to grow a backbone.
Regi_S: Godzilla 59:09 – Kind of stalkerish
kevincarr: GODZILLA 1:00:00 – So she steals the video starring a Japanese guy a Raymond Burr as Steve Martin.
kevincarr: @FyodorFish Starring Jamie Lee Curtis as Godzilla. #iknowitsanurbanlegendbutitsfunny
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 1:00:01 Sneaky ex.
FyodorFish: GODZILLA 1:01 Reminded of t/alien tunnels from INVADERS FROM MARS. Yeah, my mind’s starting to drift.
kevincarr: GODZILLA 1:01:40 – Did she just use a humpty dumpty reference? That’s corny, even for local news.
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 1:01:20 – Nope nothing at the end of the tunnel because I checked.
VouxCroux: @kevincarr I was seriously hoping Godzilla would breath fire on them and fry those soldiers in the tunnel.
kevincarr: GODZILLA 1:02:30 – It’s my news story. Right here on VHS… 300 glorious lines of resolution!
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 1:02:13 – Though I won’t sleep with you, I tried a different way.
kevincarr: GODZILLA 103:30 – The virgin lizard! Call Dan Brown!
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 1:03 Please explain how reproduction works to all of the government.
FyodorFish: GODZILLA 1:04 “He’s preparing to feed his young.” I’m so confused. And t/hero seemed really excited about t/news.
kevincarr: GODZILLA 1:04:20 – All these French guys do is eat and complain about the food.
VouxCroux: @kevincarr it’s nice to know the French are keeping tabs on our “worm guys”
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 1:05:03 – Excuse me but I think you should watch something but I don’t know why or what it is. But do it.
FyodorFish: GODZILLA 1:06 Heart-breaking: our hero’s been kicked of the Godzilla Hunt Squad.
kevincarr: GODZILLA 1:07:00 – Wait, was that supposed to be a tender moment between MB and the stalker-ish not-as-attractive redhead?
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 1:06:03 – Why does repeating words, words, several, several times make it seem… Whatever.
Regi_S: Godzilla 1:05:30 – Hanging out in the bar when the world is going to hell around them Didn’t notice anyone trying to get laid
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 1:07:30 – Why are you leaving? I thought it was ok.
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 1:08:00 – Honest moment from the ex. But is it ever really?
kevincarr: GODZILLA 1:08:40 – Jesus, this love-theme music melodrama sucks. Bring on the destructive lizard!
Regi_S: Gozilla 1:08:00ish – I thought she was going with the I had our baby speech
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 1:09 – Yay! Half way done. Woah, what? Crap.
kevincarr: GODZILLA 1:10:30 – I keep expecting Inspector Clouseau to try to punch Jean Reno.
FyodorFish: GODZILLA 1:09 Nothing good comes out of/from Jersey. Oh wait, I did. Never mind then.
Stellar143: 11:11 Make a Wish lol
VouxCroux: @kevincarr We’re more than an hour in and still haven’t figured out what the French are doing there #badstorytelling
kevincarr: GODZILLA 1:11:30 – They bought *all* those guns on the streets of NYC in the afternoon? Really?
FyodorFish: GODZILLA 1:11 “In America, you can buy anything.” Yeah, he’s referring to guns. True fact: U.S. has more 250 million guns.
VouxCroux: @kevincarr 1:12:12 Looks like those reporters could learn a thing or two from their camerman (Hank Azaria) He’s onto a HUGE story.
Regi_S: @kevincarr Time for Jean Reno to go Leon on the big lizard in to kevincarr:
kevincarr: GODZILLA 1:13:10 – This is the weirdest block party ever.
FyodorFish: @kevincarr Plaxicio Burress must have seen GODZILLA b/f he went to t/club that night, locked and loaded.
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 1:13:48 – Why panic when Godzilla is in town?
VouxCroux: @kevincarr “Animal” equals Muppet or nickname for a rock musician. Not a NY cameraman
Regi_S: Godzilla 1:14:00 – Could have tried a little harder with the crying
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 1:15:00 – Let’s find the giant dinosaur or not. You can make it up to your ex.
FyodorFish: GODZILLA 1:15 True fact: Chewing gum makes you look more American.
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 1:15:44 – SMACKING. WTF? That’s not American. Well depending on what part of the country you are in I suppose.
VouxCroux: @kevincarr Aren’t cameramen usually the ones trying to tell the reporters to get outta danger? Audrey really doesn’ (cont) http://tl.gd/ulu4
Regi_S: Godzilla- What would Moe Szyslak do?
kevincarr: GODZILLA 1:16:40 – Just got back from a bathroom break… and I missed… nothing, except that chewing gum makes you look American.
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 1:15:30 – Giant Reptile, I’ll find. Rats? Count me out.
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 1:17:22 – The gum totally did the trick! Didn’t have to use an accent at all.
Regi_S: Godzilla 1:17:30ish- Bad Elvis impersonation always make you sound American
kevincarr: GODZILLA 1:18:55 – Sounds like Godzilla has the grumbellies.
VouxCroux: @kevincarr 1:18:30 Audrey’s wearing a beret & a trenchcoat. Totally looks like a stereotyped French WWII Resistance fighter from old films.
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 1:15:35 – Let’s be quiet and make lots of noise.
kevincarr: GODZILLA 1:19:40 – If only Godzilla would pop out of the ground and say, “I knew I should have taken that left turn at Albuquerque.”
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 1:19:27 Did you hear that? What?
VouxCroux: @kevincarr How is it that this film made several years after Jurassic Park (and prolly w/a larger budget) had worse SFX than JP?
FyodorFish: FyodorFish GODZILLA 1:21 Why can’t you leave GODZILLA alone? He’s just out for an evening stroll.
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 1:21:24 – Section 5 is from Eureka, right?
kevincarr: GODZILLA 1:22:25 – Leave Godzilla alone. He’s just looking for another building to hump.
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 1:21:54 – Look into my one eye and see I’m just saying hi.
VouxCroux: 1:22:00 How does it feel knowing you’re all going to die at the hand(claw?) of an iguana?
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 1:22:40 – Yes we shot at you last time. But this time we just want to see.
carcarr819: GODZILLA 1:23:32 – Didn’t realize Tom Scavo had such an authoratitive role. Perhaps he could use some of that on DH to be the MAN in the fam
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 1:23:35 – Was that T-Rex?
kevincarr: GODZILLA 1:24:20 – And suddenly the movie turns into an Esther Williams flick.
FyodorFish: GODZILLA 1:24 So t/military is trying t/exact same tactics that have failed them before? Bullets and missiles don’t work.
VouxCroux: 1:23:30 That’s what happens when you send an NCO do do an officer’s job. (ie, release of weapons) Why isn’t Kevin Dunn on the scene?
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 1:24:17 – Nose dive!
kevincarr: GODZILLA 1:25:00 – I think we’re locked on.
VouxCroux: 1:25:00 TOTAL misuse of the phrase “aye aye”
kevincarr: GODZILLA 1:26:00 – Forget the Navy. All you need is Eric Cartman and a Japanese whaling vessel to take this thing out.
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 1:25:50 He’s heading for the sub, which no one saw coming.
VouxCroux: 1:26:30 Wait, so Godzilla saw “Hunt for Red October?”
kevincarr: GODZILLA 1:27:45 – Erm… we could end the movie here if we wanted to. But that wouldn’t be the Emmerich way.
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 1:27:00 Let’s follow him in water this time. Godzilla = T-Rex and Crocodile’s baby!
VouxCroux: 1:27:50 no way is he dead. There’s still FIFTY(!) minutes left in the movie.
AronDej: Sorry I was absent for so long…
FyodorFish: GODZILLA 1:25 Godzilla is a good swimmer, a very good swimmer [in my best RAIN MAN voice].
AronDej: GODZILLA 1:26:40-ish – I don’t think the hudson river is that deep.
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 1:28:00 Target was destroyed, see him rolling around?
AronDej: GODZILLA 1:28:20-ish Yeah… this scene hits a bit too close to home for NYC.
kevincarr: GODZILLA 1:28:40 – No fish were harmed in the making of this movie. The careers of MBroderick and Maria Patillo, not so much.
FyodorFish: GODZILLA 1:28 Can you feel t/pathos? I sure can’t.
kevincarr: GODZILLA 1:29:35 – I’ve seen a lot of sci-fi/horror movies, and nothing that comes out of eggs looking like that are any good.
VouxCroux: 1:29:10 Like a true New Yorker, it’s not the loss of life, but the loss of the MSG that gets Hank Azaria pissed off.
FyodorFish: GODZILLA 1:29 All of a sudden I’m getting an ALIEN/ALIENS vibe. May make an omelette after t/live-tweet.
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 1:29:40 – Of course there are only 3 eggs… Oh wait, what’s that behind me?
kevincarr: GODZILLA 1:30:30 – Let me take this moment to personally thank Roland Emmerich for not making us watch Godzilla laying the eggs.
Regi_S: Godzilla 1:30:00 Why do we have to suffer another 00:48:40
VouxCroux: 1:31:08 How much you wanna bet MB will have a freak out about the blowing up of baby Godzilla eggs?
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 1:31:30 – I’m a worm guy. Reptiles are a step up.
AronDej: GODZILLA 1:31:30-ish Yeah, put your head up against the egg of a giant monster that is now making strange noises.
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 1:32:10 – Shhh… It feels good. Don’t talk. Just listen.
kevincarr: GODZILLA 1:32:50 – I’m ready for my close-up, Mr. Emmerich!
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 1:32:39 I need to point my flashlight at every one of the eggs to make sure they are all moving.
Regi_S: Godzilla 1:32:30ish No you have a big problem
FyodorFish: GODZILLA 1:32 Shouldn’t t/baby Godzillas be imprinting themselves on t/human characters? Methinks yes.
kevincarr: GODZILLA 1:33:55 – We smell like fish. They like fish. Quick, get Tia Tequila in her as bait!
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 1:33:41 – What’s that smell? Is Megan Fox in this movie?
kevincarr: GODZILLA 1:34:50 – Cue the expendible French guys.
Regi_S: Godzilla 1:34:20 I’m glad the out of work velciraptors found work
VouxCroux: 1:35:20 I’ve already seen this movie; when it was called Jurassic Park
AronDej: GODZILLA 1:35:00-ish – Jeez Roland, you sure are a pussy. You wont even show us those guys getting ripped apart?
Regi_S: @kevincarr They need red shirts
Stellar143: GODZILLA – 1:35:20 – I need to sniff my fingers one more time. Just to make sure.
kevincarr: GODZILLA 1:36:05 – A very quick, very poignent gay moment for Hank Azaria, Knicks fan.
FyodorFish: GODZILLA 1:35:30 We’re down two unnamed Frenchies. I miss them already.
Stellar143: And this is my 5,001 tweet! I love all my tweeps and thank you for sticking with me. <3 Even through my crazy times of tweeting constantly!
VouxCroux: @kevincarr not gay, he just has a "heterosexual man crush"
kevincarr: GODZILLA 1:38:20 - The two Jeans didn't make it, we are reminded. And we all weep.
Stellar143: GODZILLA - 1:37:55 - It's busy! How do I use a phone?
Stellar143: GODZILLA - 1:38:54 Do you think we can fit in this small hole together? We can try!
VouxCroux: @kevincarr I know they all smell like fish, but there were a lot fish where they hatched. What's the diff? Why do the mini-gz's care?
kevincarr: GODZILLA 1:39:45 - Sing along with me now... Another Jean bites the dust.
FyodorFish: GODZILLA 1:39 Air vents, big comfy air vents. They're a must in every action film. And there goes another French dude.
AronDej: GODZILLA 1:39: throughout - Oh. Look at that. More frenchies who cant defend themselves. Just like in WWII.
Stellar143: GODZILLA - 1:39:30 = PS - We are still carrying around guns that we know will not work.
kevincarr: GODZILLA 1:40:35 - Machine guns don't stop the velocizillas, but the riot doors at MSG do.
FyodorFish: GODZILLA 1:40 Man, the French dudes are falling like...French dudes....
kevincarr: GODZILLA 1:41:15 - This scene would be so much more effective if I gave even the tiniest shit about Matthew Broderick.
Stellar143: GODZILLA - 1:40:55 - Godzilla babies know how to use a door! How cute!
VouxCroux: 1:41:15 seriously now, this is just Jurassic Park redux. Emmerich owes Crichton some royalties.
kevincarr: GODZILLA 1:42:00 - That popcorn must smell like fish.
Stellar143: GODZILLA - 1:41:20 - Tapping the elevator button repeatedly always makes it happen faster.
FyodorFish: GODZILLA 1:41 Our whiny hero: he's what's for an late evening snack.
Regi_S: Godzilla 1:41:00ish- Just think of the effects the hormones in the corn used to make popcorn will have on the baby godzillas
Stellar143: GODZILLA - 1:42:40 - I couldn't get out, but I'm out now.
kevincarr: GODZILLA 1:44:00 - The broadcast booth! We're saved!
Regi_S: Godzilla 1:43:47 Run Moe ,Run
Stellar143: GODZILLA - 1:43:10 - Hank wants to get eaten. There's just no other reason.
AronDej: GODZILLA 1:44:18 - I swear, those little godzillas better not kill the one frenchman who kick ass.
kevincarr: GODZILLA 1:44:45 - This movie has the same message as the movie VOLCANO. Were it not for the news media, we'd all be dead.
VouxCroux: 1:43:40 Godzilla SFX are horrible the mini-Godzillas are running in step.
FyodorFish: GODZILLA 1:44 Odd how our heroes can always outrun t/mini-Godzillas.
kevincarr: GODZILLA 1:46:15 - And the real triumph in this movie: Audrey gets on TV. That's what it's all about.
Stellar143: GODZILLA - 1:46:10 - Yes, you're on. Maybe. Keep asking.
kevincarr: GODZILLA 1:47;10 - I knew it! These are just huge, sacly tribbles... without the cuteness and adorable song.
Stellar143: GODZILLA - 1:46:45 Matthew still doesn't sound like a scientist.
FyodorFish: GODZILLA 1:47 What? Destroy Madison Square Garden? No. I say no. Let t/mini-Godzillas out. What harm could that do?
kevincarr: GODZILLA 1:48:10 0 I want you to blow up Madison Square Garden! Just like you did the Chrysler Bld., the Flatiron and the Met Life bldg.
Stellar143: GODZILLA - 1:48:35 Yay finally more action. 40 minutes later.
Regi_S: Godzilla 1:48:10ish - IDF News Independence Day Four
AronDej: GODZILLA - We need Kent Brockman to say: "I, for one, welcome our new baby godzilla overlords."
kevincarr: GODZILLA 1:49:00 - "He's from France." That's your punchline. Steal it from a Coneheads sketch, maybe?
Stellar143: GODZILLA - 1:49:28 - They ate all of the food. For free.
kevincarr: GODZILLA 1:50:10 - Bullets and missles don't harm the velocizillas, but basketballs and gumballs do the trick.
Stellar143: GODZILLA - 1:50:00 HAHAHA. They tripped. That has to be the funniest part of the movie. Though, it wasn't that funny.
FyodorFish: GODZILLA 1:49 Best line in t/entire movie: "He's from France."
Regi_S: Godzilla 1:50:15 - Brought down by gumballs . Wylie Coyote that ones for you
FyodorFish: GODZILLA 1:50 Our hero-scientist runs like a girl. Sorry, someone had to say it.
kevincarr: GODZILLA 1:52:20 - Well, they blew up the Garden... but did it get all the velocizillas?... Hmmmm? (cue STARGATE music)
FyodorFish: GODZILLA 1:52 And there goes Madison Round Garden. Bummer. I ran into Dustin Hoffman there once (in t/john).
Stellar143: GODZILLA - 1:52:35 Are you alright? Enter cheap rerun pick up line.
kevincarr: GODZILLA 1:53:40 - Hermaphrodite Godzilla is back, and boy is he/she pissed!
Stellar143: GODZILLA - 1:53:00 YAY end music.
VouxCroux: 1:53:40 Told you Godzilla wasn't dead!
Stellar143: GODZILLA - 1:53:20 - Wait, WTF?
FyodorFish: GODZILLA 1:53 Just when you thought it was over...Papa/Mama Godzilla is not a happy camper.
AronDej: GODZILLA 1:54:00 - "he looks angry!" I thought we established that Godzilla is a tranny?
kevincarr: GODZILLA 1:54:30 - And the girl trips! When was this film made? The 1950s?
Stellar143: GODZILLA - 1:54:00 - Uh oh. You've killed the big momma/pappa 's babies.
Stellar143: GODZILLA - 1:54:45 - Chain link fence will stop Godzilla.
kevincarr: GODZILLA 1:55:50 - Okay, New Yorkers arguing about directions is pretty funny.
Regi_S: Godzilla 1:55:36 Follow that taxi
Stellar143: GODZILLA - 1:56:10 - How come the French guy is driving the New Yorker's around?
AronDej: GODZILLA 1:56:30 - At this point, I think you guys are gonna need a miracle on 34th street.
kevincarr: GODZILLA 1:56:40 - Turn right on 34th Street! We'll need a miracle to survive... a miracle on 34th street! #badfreakingpun
AronDej: @kevincarr THIEF!
AronDej: @kevincarr Hopefully NEVER! Unless he made it mega campy.
kevincarr: GODZILLA 1:57:40 - Tom Scavo figures it out...
Stellar143: RT @AronDej GODZILLA 1:56:30 - At this point, I think you guys are gonna need a miracle on 34th street.
AronDej: GODZILLA 1:58:15 -What the... why was there a cougar meow/roar?
kevincarr: GODZILLA 1:58:20 - So when is Roland Emmerich going to remake MOTHRA?
Stellar143: GODZILLA - 1:57:30 He's back, since you didn't notice I had to tell you.
FyodorFish: GODZILLA 1:57 All of a sudden Godzilla loses his motor skills.Slipping and falling? Seriously. I expected better (I know, I shouldn't have).
Stellar143: GODZILLA - 1:59:10 A missile couldn't stop Godzilla, but a tunnel will.
kevincarr: GODZILLA 2:00:00 - "Where's the nearest suspension bridge?" "San Francisco." "Dammit!"
kevincarr: GODZILLA 2:00:40 - Aw, Roland Emmerich. What did the Brooklyn Bridge ever do to you?
Stellar143: GODZILLA - 2:00:14 Pfft of course it has high beams.
@AronDej”: Maybe Ben Stiller could direct.
VouxCroux: @kevincarr What did the World ever do to Roland Emmerich? We let him constantly make bad movies. I'd say he's got a lot to be thankful for
kevincarr: GODZILLA 2:01:45 - Dear Roland Emmerich: Just b/c Hasselhoff is popular in your home country does not mean that Broderick is an action hero.
kevincarr: GODZILLA 2:03:40 - The tragedy of Godzilla. All he wanted to do was make some tunnels, lay some eggs and hump a few buildings.
VouxCroux: 2:03:50 how many missiles exactly do these airplanes have?
FyodorFish: GODZILLA 2:03 I'm going to miss the big guy when he's gone. Wait, no I'm not.
kevincarr: GODZILLA 2:05:30 - If Godzilla were played by Gary Busey, this would be the moment when he'd jump up and Mel Gibson would shoot him.
VouxCroux: 2:05:30 Is there a reason why there' still 13 minutes left in this movie? Why, God, why?
FyodorFish: GODZILLA 2:05 I'm getting a KING KONG (76 remake) vibe from this scene (heartbeat slowing, then stopping).
kevincarr: GODZILLA 2:06;15 - Ew. Summer cold.
kevincarr: GODZILLA 2:07:00 - Tom Scavo finally gets validation from his superior officer. Awwwww...
FyodorFish: GODZILLA 2:07 Goosebumps, I'm getting goosebumps. Oh right, I left t/window open.
kevincarr: GODZILLA 2:08:15 - Phillippe is "removing a few items from the tape," like Animals' sex romp with Garry Shandling and Sandra Bernhard
VouxCroux: @kevincarr "Philippe, this could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship."
kevincarr: GODZILLA 2:09:30 - Wait for it... wait for it... wait for it... it's over, or is it?
kevincarr: GODZILLA 2:09:40 - And ROLL CREDITS!
FyodorFish: GODZILLA 2:09 Oh and here's the sequel-ready scene. Talk about wishful thinking, Mr. Emmerich.
AronDej: AND ROLL CREDITS! And now for some Puffy featuring Jimmy Page!
FyodorFish: GODZILLA And w/that, one of t/worst all-time remakes runs out of celluloid. Thanks, Mr. Emmerich for all t/fish.
FyodorFish: RT @AronDej AND ROLL CREDITS! And now for some Puffy featuring Jimmy Page!// Catchy track, no?
AronDej: @FyodorFish Yeah, its catchy. But only because of the guitar. if i want that, I'll just go listen to Kashmir.
Regi_S: Godzilla 2:11:04 I hope there aren't 7+ minutes of credits
kevincarr: Final thoughts on GODZILLA: I still like the movie even though it's a velocizilla-sized turd. Lizards were cool. Broderick was uber-lame.
kevincarr: A big thanks to @FyodorFish @Regi_S @AronDej @VouxCroux and @Stellar143 for joining in on the live-tweet. It was awesome & hilarious!
FyodorFish: @kevincarr It was hella fun, without a doubt. Definitely. Looking forward to t/next one.
FyodorFish: GODZILLA Credits: Really? A cover of Bowie's "Heroes?" Why not stick w/t original? Bowie at his best.
Regi_S: Godzilla 2:18:40 and done. What? Where is the scene where the last egg hatches and we know for sure that there will be a Gozilla 2?
A big thanks to @FyodorFish @Regi_S @AronDej @VouxCroux, @carcarr819 and @Stellar143 for live-tweeting this mutated lizard-turkey!
Follow Kevin on…
