The Science of Legendary’s Godzilla (2014)

Yo! Gareth Edwards! Listen up!
Nobody wants to read yet-another review of Legendary’s Godzilla film complaining about, well, just about everything. I won’t lie, I’ve got some serious ‘druthers’ about the film, but I think it would be more fun to give suggestions on how to make things better going forward, while laboring under the delusion Gareth Edwards would ever actually SEE this. Ha! That’s cute…
Truth be told, I did enjoy Godzilla. A lot. Probably due to my lifelong conditioning to love anything reptilian and large. Additionally, I enjoyed it more watching it a second time on Blu-ray the other day, because I had a better idea what to expect, and I had bonus features to help fill out some of the missing background meat from the movie.
But still, Gareth, really?
You expect us to suspend disbelief about ginormous freaking monsters, but don’t give us anything plausible to work with? What’s the biology of an immense animal that ‘feeds’ off radiation? How would any organism survive the proposed MILLIONS of years you suggest?
Tell you what, I’ll throw you a bone here. Instead of just bitching and moaning, I’ve given it some serious thought about how you can increase the plausibility of your Kaiju. And it’s yours for free, I’d just like a nod at the end of the credits. ^_~
