Well, this is the quintessential Top movie! \:D/

I think it looks too scary for me, though. :( Have fun, boys!

I didn't really care about Godzilla until we went over to a friend's house last year to watch one of them (don't ask me which one, but it was newer and in Japanese) and it was interesting. So we'll see what I do about this one.

The *newest* Japanese one was Shin Godzilla, where he doesn't find any other monsters and looks dumb and evolves throughout the film. I didn't care for it but it seemed to be pretty popular as far as these things go. But there were films through the first half of the 00's so could've been one of those.

I have seen the trailer for this movie many times. Pretty much at all the recent movies I have gone to. It looks totally epic! I haven't actually seen any Godzilla movies but I may have to go watch this. My one concern is that I don't particularly care for widespread destruction in movies. I can handle it but I just don't like watching entire cities being destroyed. I can't help but think how many people die and how much it will cost to repair it all! :boohoo:

I'm looking forward to this movie so much! I had never given much thought to Godzilla stuff before, until the last movie I'd never seen one, but that flipped some switch in me because I was instantly on board with that one and from the first clips I saw of this one it just looked unbelievably epic to me!

I'm also super excited for them to get to Godzilla vs Kong!

The greatest film in the history of film! \:D/

Or not, but it was pretty good and entertaining. Shame the reviews and box office are both swimming in the toilet together, but they basically already filmed the sequel so at least we get that--not too promising for anything beyond that, sadly.

I absolutely loved this! It was everything I wanted!

I had some very minor criticisms of a couple story beat decisions or how they were executed, but nothing that came anywhere close to preventing the movie as a whole from being a really great time.

Box office has been disappointing, quite unexpectedly when the prerelease excitement had seemed to be genuine, but Godzilla vs Kong is already in production so thankfully getting that isn't reliant on success here.
The end credits were a great mix of efficient epilogue for this movie and hype job for bringing in Kong. I'm looking forward to that more than ever now, can't wait to see it!

Yeah...

The overall plot with eco-terrorists wanting to wake up the Titans, I liked, but I didn't really care for the family drama. Just didn't work for me. And the main woman (sorry, forget the actress and character name!) being in league with the terrorists I felt like could've been a bigger plot twist, but it just kind of happened.


Certainly not deal breaking, and plenty of Godzilla films have had worse plots, but a little nitpicking there.

Also while sometimes it was kind of funny, I thought a lot of the little one liners and quips were just kind of there and not particularly hilarious or whatever. Like they tried a little too hard to be an MCU style movie but mostly missing. I'd take that over it being too somber, but it felt forced. You had a couple guys that were overall kind of goofy, cell phone commercial guy and white haired guy, so while they weren't always hilarious, it kind of fit their character, but Main Guy who is scared to death his daughter and estranged/ex-wife are going to be killed was also joining in, and it just seemed odd to me.

The movie had loads and loads of call backs to older films, which I know a lot of viewers won't get, but I liked that. \:D/

I also felt the development that
the mom was in with the villain
lacked something, but one thing I did like about it was
her turn around at the end. At first I didn't buy it, I was thinking come on all of a sudden she comes back to the right side and we're supposed to think good for her after what she did? But then I realized it was the payoff of what that one scientist had said earlier about how dragons can offer redemption. This was hers. So then I was okay with it, and I was impressed the movie didn't insert a cheesy flashback to that scene to hammer in what was happening, trusting the viewer would figure it out.
