The computer graphics in Godzilla Resurgence are quite good. Let’s see how they all came together.

While I have mixed feelings about the film itself, I loved the look of it, the camera setups, and the CG.

The CG felt tactile and heavy like the models and miniature sets of the past. As Kotaku previously reported, a Japanese stage actor did Godzilla’s motion capture performance. It’s the 21st century’s version of suit-acting, and it does bring realism to the character’s movements.

The CG is a nice look. I hope it’s the blueprint for future films.

I haven’t seen the full film so I’m probably wrong, but it really bothers me that Godzilla is holding the same dumb pose in every shot we see in the trailer. He’s just standing there perfectly upright, with his tiny hands arms locked in the same exact position, shuffling his feet along.
