Were you a fan of this year's summer hit Godzilla? Did you wonder how in the heck writer/director Gareth Edwards got the job making that film? And how he parlayed that into a gig in the new Star Wars Universe? Either way, we've got you covered this week. The guys take a look at the 2010 micro-budgeted sci-fi film Monsters written and directed by Gareth Edwards. Enjoy the episode and voice your opinion in the comments section below!
Are remakes necessary? Do they correct fundamental flaws in the original telling of excellent stories? Or are they created solely to cash in on a base level of brand recognition and familiarity? The guys discuss this question using the 1998 version of Godzilla and the new 2014 version as examples.
This means we sat through both versions of Godzilla. It also means you do not have to.
You. Are. Welcome.
