Roarrr! Gareth Edward’s Godzilla despite the mixed bag of reviews was one of the box office successes of 2014, it was a film that split The People’s Movies writers. Everything from the choice of actors, the weak screenplay where some of the arguments on why the film didn’t work but not to open up old wounds the film it had its positives with sound been one of them. Godzilla’s roar is one of The king of monsters iconic attributes and thanks to Soundworks Collection we have an fantastic extensive look at the sound design.
