None of the above. Might I suggest...

We went and saw Godzilla at the 3D IMAX last night. We both really liked the show (what is not to like about Godzilla?), but I grumped about something on the way out of the theatre, and one of the reviewers in The Metro echoed my thoughts this morning. I'd have liked to see more of Godzilla in it. The title character got depressingly little screen time IMO.

If I see it again, I may take a stopwatch with me because it felt like he got about 8 minutes of screen time in the whole movie. They did the Cloverfield thing, with fight scenes happening offscreen while everything shook and crumbled, or little glimpses of monster through the clouds of dust and smoke. It's a shame, because they did an awesome job on the Godzilla model.

There were a few other things we joked about as well after the show (like technology that only worked when it was convenient to the plot), but we were both willing to cut it some slack for scientific inaccuracy, since it was ultimately a movie about giant, radioactive monsters.

Mom once suggested that my view of the world must look something like this:
She said that, more so than almost anyone else she knew, I seemed to experience the world through the lens of a camera. I suppose based on what I tend to post, it looks like I take a lot of photos. I don't, really. I mean, I probably take more than most people (if you discount selfies), but I am just a bit more spammy about sharing them with the world.

Oh, and the picture itself is what my Nikon looks like through the lens of my Canon.
