The Kids Talk Film: GODZILLA
ScreenAnarchy has been on the Internet long enough that many of its writing staff have children old enough to understand and consume media in a way that is both raw and fresh. It might even come with an inkling of consideration afterwards -- it's true that many of us fall in love with the movies when we are very young. Thus, we are offering you the perspective of smaller children as they react to seeing classic filmmaking on the big screen.
Willem (age 11) and Miranda (age 9) took in the original Gojira (aka Godzilla) in its original Japanese form directed by Honda Ishirō. They offer another episode in the ongoing Kids Talk Film series. It is interesting to see them empathizing as much or more with the monster, compared to the humans in the story. They have a fair bit to say.
In the past, Willem and his younger sister Miranda have discussed movies ranging from Terry Gilliam's Time Bandits and Jacques Tati's Playtime, to Jackie Chan's Police Story and Steven Spielberg's Jaws. Many of these these episodes, including a 15 film series on Studio Ghibli can be found in the ScreenAnarchy archives or at the Kids Talk Film Channel on Vimeo.
