‘Godzilla vs. Kong’ Director Adam Wingard on That Neon Action Scene, Bringing Out Emotion in the Monsters, and More [Interview]

While beating each other to a pulp, Godzilla and King Kong – two titans who find themselves at odds with each other in the new Legendary/Warner Bros. MonsterVerse movie Godzilla vs. Kong – roar directly in each other’s faces. It’s a moment that makes director Adam Wingard (You’re Next, The Guest, Blair Witch) “ teary-eyed,” though he acknowledges it’s an odd moment in the film to get emotional. Still, “every time I watch it, I’m like, ‘This is what it’s all about,'” he told us in a recent inter...

Kings of the Monsters: What to Watch to Prepare for ‘Godzilla vs Kong’

Later this month, the earth is going to quake as cinema’s two biggest (and oldest) titans starting punching each other’s lights out in Adam Wingard’s Godzilla vs. Kong . Like other “vs” movies of this stature, this represents not one epic cinematic event but two. Though these particular versions of these characters are relatively new, both have decades (almost a century in Kong’s case) of iconography behind them that can be intimidating to viewers who don’t know their history, but don’t want ...

Who Dares Wins: Upcycle Customizes the Ducati 998

There are a few motorcycles in Ducati’s back catalog that would ruffle feathers if they were customized. Depending on how much of a purist you are, the 998 might just be one of them. It was the last model to carry the iconic 916’s aesthetic, but was powered by Ducati’s new, and much improved, Testastretta motor—making it kind of special. Johhny Nguyen isn’t too fussed though. He’s a relatively young custom builder with a sharp eye and penchant for urban style, and isn’t afraid to buck traditi...

Remember the Sultans of Sprint drag race series in Europe? The man behind this brilliant idea was Séb Lorentz, who runs the Lucky Cat Garage with his partner, the artist and restoration specialist Laurence Chatokhine. The drag racing is on hold for the moment, for obvious reasons, but Séb has a solid background as a talented custom builder.

Get Dirty: A Kawasaki W800 with a vintage motocross vibe

The Kawasaki W800’s versatility is just one of its many charms. Throw a handful of mods at it, and you’ll end up with a respectable garden variety street scrambler in no time. But how about turning it into a full-on vintage motocrosser, where the original bike is almost unrecognizable? That takes equal doses of imagination, talent and dedication—and Mário Raphael Soares has plenty of all three. He’s been running MRS Oficina in Paris for the last few years, but has just moved his workshop back...

The Best Naked Motorcycles of 2020

Strip Them Down Naked motorcycles. Sounds sexy right? Well, in most cases, that’s true. These bikes are stripped of their fairings and ready to ride. They offer a more of a wind-in-your-face, raw experience. In my mind, it’s the way motorcycles are meant to be experienced.  Naked bikes come in many different forms. Often, the design is a fully-faired sportbike that has been stripped down, reworked, and made a little more street-friendly. You’ll find single piece handlebars instead of clip-on...

Gixxer Fix: A GSX-R1100 with Ducati superbike suspension

Arno Overweel builds pretty wild custom motorcycles. He’s not afraid of bolting a turbo onto a Honda CBX1000, for example. But he usually reserves those neck-turners for his customers: his own daily runner is a bone stock and somewhat anonymous Suzuki TL1000.

So he figured it was time for another personal project. Arno had a s...
