    Well, if this isn't relevant to the film, I think I'll just wait to stream it.

    Even though I was disappointed in '14, one of the aspects I appreciated about it was that the humans were so inconsequential to everything Godzilla and the MUTOs did. I wish it had continued on the path of the monsters not really noticing the humans at all.

    I'm also surprised to see all the love for the scene with Ken Watanabe and Godzilla. While it is a nice moment when he touches Godzilla, on the whole, that sequence reminded me of The Core.

    How good was that reworked Godzilla 1954 theme music though??

    That and Rodan's music were so sick. Almost makes me want to drop the $50 for the soundtrack on vinyl.

    Bradley Whitford annoyed the hell out of me in this.

    There was not a single character I actually liked in this movie. Watanabe and Sally Hawkins were the least harmless.

    I was kind of hoping that Godzilla was going to kill Rodan for being so heavy on team Ghidorah.

    Yes the dialogue was bad, yes Kyle Chandler was nearly insufferable, but boy did I fucking love this movie. Absolutely gorgeous to look at. As a massive John Wick fan, this was the most fun I've had in theaters in months. Easily the best of the Monsterverse movies so far.

    And the martyr scene was truly touching and well-done imo

    I really don’t get how they got so many good actors in this, and made them so fucking boring and one dimensional. Everyone outside of the two returning characters were completely miscast.

    But on a positive note: MOTHRA was fucking GORGEOUS

    I've been going back and watching some of the older movies and it's making me appreciate this one a little more. This shares a lot in common with quite a few of the King Ghirdorah films. Monsters getting lose from captivity (Destroy All Monsters), Reviving Godzilla to fight Ghidorah (Godzilla vs King Ghidorah 1991) and Ghidorah, The Three-Headed Monster just in terms of the main kaiju used. I still wish this one had just leaned in harder to the campy/more self aware vibe, but I can't deny the fun.

    I kind of wish we had gotten a solo Mothra film before this one. Mothra's design was a highlight of the film.

    Also, I want Godzilla to take a heal turn at some point if this series is able to continue past Godzilla vs Kong.

    Towards the end of the movie I was so bored with the human story line.

    I hate when a movie designates just one character as the comic relief - spread that around. The only laugh Whitford got from me was “I film everything” and that was mainly because of Kyle Chandler’s reaction.

    Yeah a lot of movies have that character but his was especially bad and I generally like Whitford.

    我不在乎

    This film definitely takes pieces of older films. That’s probably my favorite thing about the film.

    In the theater. By myself because my friends are lame and don’t like Godzilla, and my wife is a tired pregnant lady.

    So excited.


    Prob only about 15 people in a 100 seat theater right now, makes me sad :tear:

    I couldn’t give a shit about a good human storyline in a monster movie. Just gimme all the monsters fighting and check the humans at the door. I see too many humans in basically every movie. I’m over humans now. I want MONSTERS!

    Will I enjoy this?

    There is a lot of humans, probably too much, especially the main family....but frankly I didn't care. The obvious exposition didn't bother me because I wanted to know more about the monsters, even if it didn't always make sense. The monsters themselves and the fights were awesome

    Is there more monster time in this one than the last one?
