‘Godzilla’ kicks it old school
Rumor has it that the next entry in the long, long running sci-fi franchise will be ditching CGI and instead creating its gigantic fire-breathing lizard the old fashioned way: by putting a guy in a rubber suit.
Somewhere George Lucas is laying on the floor in the fetal position, a “Human Centipede 2” brand vomit bag clutched in each hand. Unable to come to terms with the idea someone might like practical effects better than CGI.
But luckily for anyone who ever sat through the CGI-heavy American version, new “Godzilla” director Gareth Edwards has some respect for the old ways.
Of course, it’s all rampant speculation at this point. According to Imdb.com, Edwards’ take on “Godzilla” isn’t scheduled to hit theaters until 2014, so a lot could change by that point.
Heck, Edwards could just be slinging gossip around, knowing full well if the Ancient Mayans and Harold Camping have their ways; his “Godzilla” will never see the light of day.

Never fear Brits, the ‘Human Centipede’ is here!
A scant four months after being banned for its depiction of brutal, perverse violence, “The Human Centipede 2” will now be welcomed with open arms into theaters across Britain.
What caused this sudden about face from the British Board of Film Certification?
Well, director Tom Six trimmed two minutes and 37 gut-wrenching seconds off his film.
So, what will our allies from across the pond be missing out on? Oh not much. Just some barbed wire rape and shots of people pooping in each other’s mouths among other things. You know, nothing major.
The best part about this news is that Six and company can’t use “Banned in so and so country” as part of a marketing campaign to lure dumb people into watching their movie.
And Britain, get with the times. You can’t ban movies anymore. This isn’t the dark ages. There’s this thing called the Internet now. If people in your country really want to watch Six’s repulsive fantasies in action, they’re going to find a way to do so.
Boy, I’m getting tired of writing about this movie. The plot summaries alone are making me feel like I need a dip in a tub full of molten Purell just to get clean.
