    The trailer blew my mind. Never knew Clair de lune would fit so well in a kaiju movie. In love with Mothra!!

    But how are we to identify with the movie if there's no father/son, husband/wife, randomly-both-pulled-into-the-action Person A/Person B human relationship?!?!

    Just enjoying the destruction? Unheard of.


    Also, that trailer looked fun.

    Nearly everyone I talked to who didn't like Godzilla 2014 had "Bryan Cranston wasn't in the movie enough" as their main complaint. Good Godzilla movies are about Godzilla. Not people. The makers of the 1997 movie didn't understand that, which is the main reason it sucked. I am hoping they stick with this philosophy for the next movie but if it ends up missing the mark, at least we got this beautiful trailer.

    I avoid trailers as if they cause rashes, but I'll most likely plunk down for this particular film anyway.

    The movie was fucking awesome! King Ghidorah was so well done
    and I'm definitely looking forward to the Mecha version!

    Huh.

    I figured it would be a lucky stroke (and a bit of a miracle) if this latest attempt ended up being a surprise delight, but, it pains me to report, what I had no expectation of is just how charmless, bland and wall to wall 'uncanny' it would turn out to be.

    I'm glad you had a good time, my Mitten Man. I haz sad.

    I heard the 2014 movie was a lot worse with the talking though.

    Didn’t go in expecting too much so I at least enjoyed seeing Goji & Friends on the big screen and the sound design. Props to everyone involved in realizing these massive visuals!

    That being said, definitely lacking in any genuine character development and kind of weird pacing. Shin did a really solid job portraying the human aspect and Skull Island hit the right self aware tone for me. I was hoping it would be a bit more like those two.

    Also the fortune cookie line - HUH?!

    My basic takeaway was this:

    All monster renditions and action and fight scenes were fuckin’ AWESOME. 95% of human dialogue and story was trash. Millie Bobby Brown was the best acted character in this movie, right next to Ken Watanabe. Most of the characters and lines felt so contrived and patronizing. Recalling the “let them fight” line from another character, followed by “I always loved it when he said that” was so...just dumb. Too much personal human interest for the storyline. So for me, Monsters and visuals, overall: A+. Everything else: D-.

    Agree:
    Those two lines "...let them fight" and "[chuckles] I loved when he used to say that" were probably the single most bothersome thing in the movie for me. Way to trivialize a crucial moment in the 2014 Godzilla by making it sound like the dude said that every day like a fucking catch phrase...
    Still loved it! But some of the lines killed me.

    Or, in this case, Doug Moench and Herb Trimpe invoking Kirby, but your point still stands. If only the King had drawn the King!

    Might not be everyone's cup of tea but these came out cute. The whole Chibi Goji series has some fun Sanrio-esque merch.

    Will definitely try to pick this set up if the price is right.

    All three are honestly pretty rad, but the faces on Ghidorah totally sold me.

    Watched King of Monsters last weekend. Pretty much concur with what others have said - monsters were amazing, but the story sucked big-time. The messaging was abhorrent and makes me wonder who bankrolled the production. Mix a bunch of anti-gov/regulation messaging in with eco-terrorists being multi-billion dollar paramilitary group bent on human extinction? It just felt like this was made for people who identify as "centrists" or "libertarians" while clearly being on the far right, my-way-or-the-highway end of the spectrum.
    And yeah - it's sad that MBB was the best actor in the movie.
    BUT - THE MONSTERS WERE AWESOME!
