            Hopefully they get the backstory / character right this time. As long as that's good, I'm good.

                  I only want to see TMNT if it ends with them as turtle soup and the bad guy dipping his finger in and saying: "Hmm...needs more salt..."

                                @mcleve02 Such a long wait is what I meant.

                                @monkeyiron2-0 A mutated cat? WTF you been smoking dude? We know that this Godzilla will be fighting a multi armed insect.

                                  @monkeyiron2-0 That would have been too much... what happens when you have way too many villains in one movie...

                                      This is good news...good news...I think the American remake did good but too much human not enough GodZilla and it could've been epic if He fought a monster like a mutated cat or something plus the movie should've got his size right which he is the size of the Empire state building...Hopefully this movie will please my lust for an epic Monster fight like 2005's KING KONG did

                                          @mcleve02 You sat through all the Twilight films?! That is some dedication! I've only seen the first one and felt like I had died a little inside...and started decomposing! Not too big on Robocop, but I guess it's vice versa for me with Godzilla: it may not be all that great, but I'M SOOOO PSYCHED FOR IT!!! I have all 28 originals practically memorized, so this is a childhood dream come true.
