Lie Witness News – Godzilla Edition

Godzilla made $93 million during its opening weekend here in the United States. So we went out onto Hollywood Blvd and asked people this question: considering Godzilla is based on the true story of the giant lizard attack on Tokyo that killed more than 100,000 people in 1954, do you think it is wrong that Hollywood glamorizes this event for entertainment? #LieWitnessNews

  1. Wheres the X-Men review?

    • Film doesn’t release until Thursday (it’s technically 1:41am Thursday morning here in the UK) and reviews in every country tend to go up on Fridays.

  2. I thought The Wolverine was great

  3. X Men was good. Maybe not as good as the hype but some very good character moments and an enjoyable ride.

    First Class is still the best of the series by a wide margin. Hopefully Matthew Vaughn returns for the next instalment.

  4. just saw x-men dofp, easily the best comic movie yet!!

  5. I didn’t notice half those problems with The Wolverine, Jean Grey didn’t need to be there, but given her attire… the “stealthy” ninja routine is a common cliche. I did hate the third act though.

    Stupid Silver Samurai wannabe.

  6. excuse me guys but i discuber something there was before on the X-men team and the X-men doesn’t exist is existing other name that is before X-men for this tenaggers is Generation X before apear X-men so in 1993 there was another tittle that is very similar on X-men movies it call Generation X before X-men so take a look a this if you don’t believe me
    Generation X – T.V. Pilot check it out
