Rewatching Godzilla, and OMG it's Ferris Bueller!

How old is this movie?

> Bits and pieces of different body parts of Godzilla were shown on TV commercials and posters, but never the entire body; this was to add a bit of mystery as to the design of the creature, ideally prompting people to see the film because that was the only way to see the whole creature. However, the toy line was released before the film and spoiled everything.

On a more serious note, the mystery music during the first 15 minutes of the film reminded me why I loved Hollywood movies.

Despite all the dumbing down of movies, excessive care about marketing, etc., sometimes they do make a movie that is worth it. In this case, they handled the mystery well.

We need more of those.

@rick_777 I haven't watched the Hollywood Godzilla, but I really enjoyed Anno Hideaki's 2016 movie Shin Gojira for its 1960's feel (both photography and soundtracks). It's also truly scary, with people dying and the good guys unable to accomplish much against this formidable enemy. That's probably why it didn't get good ratings in mainstream western media.
