They already put them in King of the Monsters, they even included multiple generations.
As opposed to a little girl being right next to Ghidorah's beams and not even getting even a tiny burn?
Or that people can't seem to locate a giant friggin monster that was right next to them 20 seconds ago?
Or that everyone apparently up and abandoned San Francisco after the battle with the MUTOs?
Anyway, we got together with two of our friends and did a spoiler talk video. It's an hour long, so I'm not sure if anyone wants to actually listen to us talk about the film for that long, but if you're curious, here you go:
KOTM was vry dope
Now I can only imagine Ghidorah doing the classic Tom screams three times over. Well played
Righty, got some more titbits to share with y'all;
-The film shows it well, but the novelization makes sure to tell us, crystal clear, that Ghidorah is a sadist who kills for fun. No distinction is made; all three heads, whatever the quirk, will bleed you for a laugh.
-Again, film makes it clear, but the director confirms that Godzilla can only achieve his greatest power with the help of Mothra.
-Mothra is implied to have a near supernatural sense of when real trouble is about to go down, of when Godzilla has real need of her. That’s why she snoozes while the Mutos run around, but pops up as quick as she can when events conspire to release Ghidorah.
-Ghidorah’s neural network is non-centralised, which allows him to preserve the consciousness and memories of his heads even if they get destroyed.
It's like nothing ever happened.
He can remember anything and everything even if his body has been severely damaged, or heads decapitated. Ghidorah's heads themselves all regenerate the same as they were before, and aren't different variations or anything. Also, Ghidorah apparently requires an enormous amount of radiation to regrow his head, which he gets from Rodan's volcano.
I just hope that Wanrer don't move the next film to another date.
Toho Studios display is cool. And the interview with Michael Dougherty & Ken Watanabe is pretty cool. His first movie was of his box turtle rampaging through his Star Wars figures.
Took the fam to watch this over the weekend...their first Godzilla movie. Took until now to get through reading/skimming the thread.
Anyways, I'm not a complete Godzilla expert but I remember watching the movies for as long as I can remember so I'm a big fan. This was one of the best Godzilla movies I've ever seen and certainly the best American one. It stayed true to the history and made it accessible to the current age. My wife loved it and said we need to see it again. She said all the parts of other Godzilla movies she's seen me watching were lame and boring in comparison (to be fair, she was right as those were probably the Netflix Animated Movies she was referring to). Kids (6 and 2) both loved it. Don't need to bring up anything else because it's all been mentioned already but just a fun, enjoyable and entertaining film that made me happy to be a Godzilla fan. Makes me want to rewatch the first two with the fam and look forward to the next one (even though I'm one who also thinks G vs K is a joke and there is no way an overgrown ape has a chance against Godzilla in any way).
The latest box office reports have KOTm doing 14 million today.
‘The Secret Life Of Pets 2’ Beating ‘Dark Phoenix’ At Box Office – Deadline
As if KOTM wasn't doing bad enough. Guess this is truly the end of the Monsterverse and I doubt even Godzilla vs Kong will save it next year.
It’s Pacific Rim Uprising all over again....
I know right? Looks like we're going to go back to the era of no mainstream theatrical releases of Godzilla or any giant monster movie for that matter. What a rotten time to be a kaiju fan. Before anyone brings up Godzilla vs Kong will be different look at the competition it has to face next year.
Disney's live action Mulan
And A Quiet Place 2
Any of those alone will destroy Godzilla vs Kong at the box office alone if not all together thanks to critics and the five year gap for KOTM to arrive. Really killed any excitement I've had for the movie since there's not going to be anymore monsterverse films afterwards.
Damn, and I thought it didn’t have any competition before. Guess it does now...
I had no idea critics and ratings still mattered to anyone. I stopped paying attention to all of them when Siskel & Ebert gave Pulp Fiction two thumbs down and then realized what dumbasses they were and changed their ratings. They are all sheeple.
Yep. It was nice while it lasted. Would've been amazing if we're able to get more but oh well. At least we got four good monster movies in the process. would've been good if we got more but looks like we won't be.
They do sadly. I'm now beginning to understand how a lot of people who are getting more and more angry at sites such as Rotten Tomatoes feel.
I don’t get mad about them. Like I said, first of all, they mean nothing to me. Second of all, they are clowns if anything so I can laugh about them if I do see anything they mention.
Pretty much my thoughts I feel people stress too much over what critics think I always feel that people should only listen to friends/family. Only say that because I feel it makes more sense to not see a movie if someone you know says it is bad instead of listening to critics who are also online strangers.
So you're saying critics aren't allowed to realize they made a mistake later on? Not everyone likes a movie on the first viewing. Hell, I didn't think Pulp Fiction and both Kill Bills were anything special when I first saw them. In fact, I intially found them boring. It wasn't until I went back to them years later and realized how brilliant they were.
There's also been movies with the opposite effect, that I'll love the first few times I see it, but then start to realize it wasn't that great to begin with. Van Helsing, Bayformers 2, and Chronicles of Riddick are prime examples of this.
