    saw this a couple days ago in Dolby Cinema, man this was a good time. the visuals, the score. while i absolutely would love a well rounded movie with a great plot, great characters, and monster mayhem, this still worked for me. i enjoyed the cheesy lines, the crazy plot, Kyle Chandler's excellent over acting haha. Kong Skull Island is still the best of these monsterverse films so far though.

    I've read a few critiques of this so far that have all mentioned that Kong: Skull Island didn't set all of its monster fights at night and in the rain. It had things happening in broad daylight. I hadn't really thought of that or noticed that before.

    Yeah I imagine doing so helps save money on the CGI budget a bit since some of the details on the monsters don't need to be fleshed out because it's "dark" and such?

    The scene where Tom Hiddleston hacks pterodactyls with a sword is a series highlight.

    Whenever I see it I always assume it is down to how they figured out on the original Jurassic Park that the CGI t-rex looked more realistic when she was covered in water and it was at night. I remember reading that's why almost all of Godzilla '98 takes place on a rainy night.

    I really wish we would get a sequel to Shin Godzilla.

    Toho’s new cinematic Kaiju universe better be worth us not getting it.

    The ending of Shin is so creepy.

    My feelings on any time there’s an article stating how the fans are fighting back against critics.

    Enjoyed the hell out of this despite its obvious flaws but then again I can find a well-rounded film anytime, not often I can find a big budget film that goes to the extreme without feeling utterly dumbed down. I also kept, for no reason that I can nail down, thinking of Jami Gertz as Dr. Melissa Reeves out of Twister whenever Millie Bobby Brown was out in the rain or observing the spectacle that was occurring.

    never fold under pressure

    The idea that the titans are essential to balancing out the global ecosystem was pretty cool. I liked the headlines at the end about wildlife flourishing after Godzilla takes the throne.

    There's a lot this movie does that I liked.

    This was cool. Wish it was better but oh well. Vera Farmiga was oddly terrible in this and she’s usually the best.

    this was a blast.

    yeah, Tywin’s motives were unclear, especially when his stated goals were already achieved and he resisted fighting back against Ghidora, but :shrug:
    also, why would the first monster you unleash be the one all signs point to as the most powerful? why not ease into it with a lesser beast?

    I found this awesome, frustrating, and frustratingly stupid.

    Are you sure they just didn’t finish doing the fusion dance?

    There were too many characters, plot threads, and half-baked ideas for this to have really worked. Despite a handful of gorgeous shots and a few genuinely great scenes that felt like they were from a better, leaner movie, this is not the movie I wanted to see coming off the back of the exuberant Skull Island.
