(Did you ever really think Godzilla was about a giant lizard stomping Tokyo? It was about nuclear annihilation, man! That monster isn't really there! That monster is your worst fear manifested into a building crushing, fire breathing juggernaut! Do I have to spell it out?)
In other film related rants, I did watch There Will Be Blood, a long rambling character study starring Daniel Day-Lewis in his most challenging and possibly greatest role. I can understand why it will compete with No Country for Old Men for best picture of the year. There Will Be Blood has touches of a Cormac McCarthy drama, with apocalyptic characters battling their wills and their superstitions of god, while spending a lifetime trying destroy each other. There was oil, there was blood. And some amazing acting.
