Will he be battling Godzilla? I'm not interested if he won't. Monsters vs tanks is boring, monsters vs monsters rocks!!!

I've seen the trailer already; doesn't look so bad, to be honest. Of course, it's no demanding stuff, but it seems to have nice special effects and pictures. Just something for some entertaining hours at the movies.

The movie does look pretty good. Peter Jackson is a great director too so I have a bit more confidence in it than I would of something directed by Spielberg. I like that it follows the old story line rather than a newer version like those others that were made back in the 90's. Those were terrible! Plus movies in which a giant gorilla fights dinosaurs has to be good. Also, I've always wanted a pet gorilla. ;)

The casting is all wrong on the male side. Let's see... pretty Nordish girl as the lead female (Naomi Watts, love her!), with a frail, hook-nosed Jew (Adrien Brody, his father, Elliot Brody, is a retired history teacher of Polish-Jewish descent) as the male hero. What the hell was Peter Jackson thinking... and also another Jew (albeit a humorous one), Jack Black. The original King Kong had a much better pair.

Well, this is just proof of how far we have degenerated and continue to. I'm also taken aback by cast of The Fantastic Four.

I didn't think so at first either, but considering he attended Hebrew school when he was young and had his bar mitzvah at age 13, I would say so. He's one of those Alpinish Armenoid types like Jason Alexander.

From now on I think it is safer to assume that anyone connected to Hollywood is Jewish, until I find evidence to the contrary. You can imagine the disappointment I felt when I found out one of my favourite movie characters is also a Jew:
