What 'Godzilla' Does and Doesn't Have in Common with 'Independence Day' (and 'Chef')
Interesting
Despite its keeping with the summer movie tradition of mass destruction, despite its conflagration of images evoking recent tragedies from the Fukushima to Katrina, and despite updating a film 60 years its junior that was in no way afraid of dealing with violent devastation head-on, 2014's Godzilla is not a monster movie about understanding tragedy. It is instead a rather strange film about survivors, and it demonstrates how disingenuously low-stakes studio summer movies have become.

Mary McDonnell on Battlestar Galactica and going mute in front of Robert Redford
Interesting
Mary McDonnell got her first on-camera role on As The World Turns, it wasn't long before she was being nominated for Oscars for Dances With Wolves and Passion Fish, enduring an alien invasion in Independence Day, and—after returning to the small screen—batting Cylons on Battlestar Galactica. Currently, McDonnell can be seen playing Captain Sharon Raydor on TNT's Major Crimes.
