Toho Is Returning to Godzilla, So I Am Too

There is a special place reserved in my heart for kaiju. A love that I've cultivated through meticulous fandom and my brief four-month stay in kaiju's ancestral home of Japan. That's why when Toho, the Japanese production company responsible for the King of Monsters himself, announced that they were getting back into… » 12/14/14 9:00pm 12/14/14 9:00pm

Brutally honest trailer shows how Godzilla was such a terrible movie

I really thought Godzilla was going to be cool. I mean the the teaser had that sick HALO jump scene and the cast had a post-Breaking Bad Bryan Cranston with an always watchable Ken Watanabe and oh yeah, GODZILLA! There was no way they were going to screw it up like they did in 1998. And yet, they did. » 9/09/14 8:33pm 9/09/14 8:33pm

Spiked Godzilla Hoodie Lets You Live Out Your Destructive Fantasies

With Matthew Broderick out of the picture, and the latest version of the film destroying the box office, it's cool to like Godzilla again.

These Bones Might Be the Biggest Creature That Ever Walked the Earth

Paleontologists have just unearthed the fossilized bones of a gigantic dinosaur that's never been seen before. They believe it's an entirely new species—and based on the size of its bones, it's way bigger than what we thought was the biggest dinosaur ever.

Godzilla trailer's audio track matches Jurassic Park perfectly

The Awesomer found this masterful mashup by Zach Prewitt using the entire audio track from the new Godzilla trailer to create an entirely new trailer for Jurassic Park. Everything matches perfectly, which shows the magic of good editing—and perhaps the fact that most movies nowadays are cookie-cutter films at heart. » 5/16/14 10:44pm 5/16/14 10:44pm

Here are 7 facts about Godzilla that you probably never knew

Did you know Godzilla's iconic roar was first created using a glove playing a double bass? Or that the Japanese studio who created Godzilla didn't use CGI for its Godzilla series until 2004?

R/C Mechagodzilla is Possessed By Satan

There is no doubt about it—a 20-inch tall R/C Mechagodzilla is something a lot of kids (and quite a few adults) would like to get their hands on this holiday season. The size is definitely impressive, but Bandai has also thrown in some spinning hands and decked it out with LEDs to sweeten the deal. However, the best… » 10/20/08 3:20pm 10/20/08 3:20pm

Perpetrators of Cut Undersea Cable Discovered, Not Godzilla BTW

Over two months after The Mystery of Godzilla and the Undersea Cables, a mini-series starring Tom Selleck and Dyan Cannon, at last we have closure. Two ships, one Korean and one Iraqi—typing fingers at the ready, conspiracy theorists—were impounded by the authorities in Dubai a couple of months ago and, following… » 4/14/08 7:32am 4/14/08 7:32am

How To Fix a Mysteriously Ruptured Undersea Cable

Not a week after two massive undersea telecom cables were snapped—according to BBC News, most likely due not to Godzilla but a single tanker "dragging its anchor along the sea bed"—and the repairs are well underway. But how in the hell do you repair a nine-layer steel-reinforced cable located deep beneath the surface… » 2/06/08 10:10am 2/06/08 10:10am

Intel Tukwila Is World's First 2 Billion Transistor Chip, Can Fight…

Tukwila is Intel's new server-oriented Itanium-family processor, the first in the world to pack two billion transistors. Most of these are used for cache memory, needed to keep its four 2GHz 65-nanometer cores fed at all times with data, instructions and probably giant radioactive lizard meat. I don't know about what… » 2/04/08 6:31am 2/04/08 6:31am

Undersea Telecom Cables Mysteriously Cut, Digitally Stranding India and…

One of today's biggest stories is the fact that India and the Middle East had about 75% of their digital connection to Europe cut off when two cables on the floor of the Mediterranean snapped under mysterious circumstances. Cables get damaged all the time, but never have two gone out simultaneously. It will take days,… » 1/31/08 10:57am 1/31/08 10:57am

15-inch Gigantor Digital Photo Frame Comes Cheap

The Gigantor photo frame isn't only big on size, like its name, but it's big on value as well. For $249, you'd normally only be able to get an 11-inch photo frame, but the Gigantor gives you 15 inches of mother-in-law- viewing glory (as opposed to the 19-inch monstrosity that is the PhotoVu). It even has built-in… » 8/01/07 1:35pm 8/01/07 1:35pm
