TGB Episode 162: The Scale of Emmerich (Guest: Germain Lussier)
by Tim Buel
June 27, 2013
On this week's episode of The Golden Briefcase, Tim (sans Jeremy) is joined by guest Germain Lussier from SlashFilm to go through their latest picks of the week, the newest DVD & Blu-ray releases, new trailers for Ridley Scott's The Counselor and Ben Wheately's A Field in England and much more. The main topic of the night was a discussion on German director Roland Emmerich (Independence Day, Godzilla, The Day After Tomorrow, 2012), in honor of his new film White House Down hitting theaters this week. The guys go over the director's filmography, his highs and lows and where they hope to see him go in the years to come.
The Golden Briefcase is also broadcast LIVE on Wednesday nights starting ~7:30PM PST. You can listen in via our Ustream page or by visiting our own live page right here on FS. The podcast is just as fun to listen to live while it's being recorded, with plenty of special guests, so I suggest you tune in the next time it records.

Godzilla in and of itself is not a terrible monster movie...if it had been called something else, given itself an original name for the creature...I think most would have got a kick out of it. It was too much of a divergence from what Godzilla was. Even as a 5(going on 6) year old...I liked the movie, but I still didn't understand why it was so different from the Godzilla on my VHS tapes. I think fans wanted a Hollywood treatment of the Godzilla they grew up with, not an 'Hollywood-ized' version that was a 'new spin' on the character. We wanted the radioactive mouth blast, we wanted the general look, we wanted the indestructible nature, we wanted the general attitude....and hopefully the upcoming 2014 film will deliver.

I'm personally a fan of Kanye's music, regardless of his personality or persona.
