back to article Stop bullying SUPER FAT GODZILLA, urge movie stars

The stars of a new Godzilla film have rallied round its big-boned monster star after cruel Japanese bullies renamed it Fatzilla.

Re: I think he fatzilla

In the US our first glimpse of him has been in Fiat commercials eating the cars. "It looks like he's feeling like Italian tonight". Eventually he chokes on the 500L, an Americanized cheeseburger-fed Fiat.

Re: I think he fatzilla

You're talking about the same guy that used to chow down on Barrow-in-Furness bus depot? What a lightweight he's become...

There's an interesting take on the "Japanese think they new Godzilla is fat" story, specifically that it's probably bunk perpetuated by multiple posts from a single guy and the western media's uncritical reporting of anything that comes from other countries (*). Scroll down to #5:-

Also, while I like the "new" 500, the 500L MPV is a mockery of the 1950s (small) 500 it's supposed to be related to; the 7-seat version far moreso.

(*) Half the weird stuff that's supposedly the latest alleged fad sweeping Japan (or China) are in truth one-off jokes, art projects etc misreported by the Western media. Even things that are real are often hugely exaggerated- the archetypal "used schoolgirl underwear vending machines" were a short-lived-trend and only generally found in or near sex shops, not in every shopping mall as some seemed to think.

Rather like the "new" Mini. Possibly more useful than the original, but a lot less fun.

Whalezilla attacks Japan!

Strangely, if someone suggested it to Asylum they'd probably do it.

Re: "aren't we all?"

Certainly not! My son has been busy trying to sort out the continuity between the (Hollywood) films, and explain why the new Godzilla is so different to the last one (he cried at the end of that).

Point the young lad to Godzilla: Final Wars. The Hollywood imitation is explained by the characters, mocked and finally annihilated by the Real Godzilla's atomic breath, on top of Sydney's Theater of the opera.

False story...

Apparently, Japan does not think that the latest Godzilla is fat. Just a couple of trolls on a Japanese BB; and the American media blew the story up out of all proportion.

Modern weapons

I have to go off at a tangent : When you see that a standard hellfire anti-tank missile can penetrate around 1.5 metres of armour plate, and a bunker buster bomb can penetrate between 2 and 6 metres of concrete, I really have a problem that half the US Army and USAF cannot mortally wound a big lizard in under 5 minutes with the amount of firepower they can bring to bear... Even if the bomb did not explode, having a laser guided 1 ton GBU-24 bomb drilling 46 cm holes in through a lizard's bonce, i would think that would slow it down in a hurry...

Oh dear, that's embarrassing. And you can see they were aiming for utmost realism in the film about a 2-mile-tall bipedal iguana. Do you want to tell them, or shall I?

Godzilla shoots nuclear fire breath and you're concerned that depiction of (puny) human weaponry in the films is unrealistic?

Re: Modern weapons

Ah but all that extra blubber he's put on in recent decades acts like composite armour by compressing with energy being expelled through the waves of fat coming from the impact point (a but like an organic vesion of chobham).

No to all your points, because this is Batma ... I mean, Godzilla. He says hello to your little friends, then eats them and farts fire.

Every time he goes back in the ocean the sea levels rise. Nothing to do with global warming.

Moviegoers need a Godzilla they can relate to!

Hey, I dare you to remain planted in a movie theater seat for 2 hours with your large soda, large popcorn with extra butter and a box of Milk Duds, and not put on a little weight yourself!

Apparently Iguana tastes a bit like chicken.

Anyway I think we need to know his BMI. Anyone seen the film and can contribute estimates of height and weight?

Didn't Godzilla attack New York in the last movie too? He's no longer attacking Japan, as he apparently is looking for Fiat's to eat. That begs the question, why he didn't just attack Italy, instead?

Maybe It's the Camera

Remember, the camera always adds about 10 pounds to anything it photographs.

Maybe there are two Godzillas

And this one is merely a generic representation of what seems to be the aspirations of the American audience to consume more calories than they burn.
