Haha. No shade, OP, but these CGI monsters leave me feeling cold. Give me the 1962 Japanese "Suitmation" version any day - there's just something charming about watching two full-grown men in ratty suits sumo wrestling through a miniature city set that these modern CGI spectacles can't top. I am 37, and the original "King Kong vs Godzilla" has been one of my favorite movies from the time I was about 6 years old. Though this quote refers to stop-motion animation (Harryhausen, et al), I believe it also applies equally well to old school "dino suit" Godzilla movies: "Stop-motion looks fake, but feels real. CGI looks real, but feels fake." - Roger Ebert

This does look fun, though. 2019's King of the Monsters was a bit flat. I think they tried to cram in way more stuff than needed. Plus the big fight at the end was way too dark to see WTF was going on. And Vera Farmiga's character completely lacked any development other than switching teams.

To see what made the first film so good, and such a cultural phenomenon, in summer 2014, watch Edwards’ movie Monsters. A movie I love. It shows you how the guy knows how to tell stories like this. Make the monsters flavoring in the soup. The main ingredients have to be people.

no, r26, I enjoyed "G v K", but, bizarrely, at some points, it managed to be both fast-paced and dull at the same time.

For whatever reasons, the original Toho Godzillas with the exception of Ishuro Honda's original "Godzilla" in 1954, made the stupid human stories part of the enduring, cheesy charm of watching them.

The American-made Monsterverse "Godzilla: King of the Monsters" and "G v K" can't quite capture the same mood of the old Toho human story plots.

Your observations are fair, R44/R46. But I can't tell you 𝑤ℎ𝑦 Kong isn't immediately wiped out by Godzilla, not without seriously spoiling the film. You'll need to see it.

You've seen the trailer, right? All versions of the trailer generally conclude with a close-up of one of Godzilla's eyes. There's something reflected there, if you look closely - something the trailers, summaries and reviews have avoided mentioning.

Full disclosure: I'm 'Team Godzilla,' and always have been , since I was a child during the Showa Era. I used to sleep with a model Godzilla as a security toy. When I was ten, I finally saw the original 'Godzilla; King of the Monsters' (1954; US cut) on television, and at the denouement, I ran from the room and sobbed my little heart out in my room. I was also rather upset with the original 'King Kong vs Godzilla' (1962).

But this 2021 film manages to be fair to both of them.

R49, "Zilla" is what the Toho kaiju franchise has chosen to call the iguana-like creature depicted in 'Godzilla' (1998) - Roland Emmerichand Tristar's loathed re-design of Godzilla. 'Zilla' makes an appearance in Toho's 2004 film, 'Godzilla: Final Wars', where he is incinerated by Godzilla's atomic breath.

The 98 Godzilla sucked, but it was a fucking masterpiece compared to the piece-of-shit Japanese Godzilla flicks of the 90s-2000s, and mads far more money, so their denial and peevish revenge on the most biologically plausible Godzilla was full of tiny dick energy.

I think that Toho's reclaim of the Tristar 'Zilla' as a separate kaiju, distinct from Godzilla (see R52), was a creative way of answering their re-design.

The production budget for this movie was $200 million and the studio postponed the release several times bc they thought it would flop big time. After its first week, the movie already made $285 million while also streaming on HBO max at the same time. I guess these numbers are pretty good for a movie release during a global pandemic.

Did you guys like Alexander Skarsgard in this movie? You guys think his name recognition contributed to the movie's success or is he basically replaceable? His career has been lackluster for years and I would love for him to have a better career and better options.

Why are trollsocks so intent upon diverting this thread onto Godzilla 2014?

by Fat Whores Rejoice!reply 7904/06/2021

I've sat through 'Godzilla vs Kong' twice now - once with my brother, and a second time with my best friend.

I do have a few criticisms.

Kyle Chandler, the star of the previous film in the franchise, appears here, but he is entirely superfluous, and the character's cluelessness made me dislike him.

At the Antarctic, the passageway in the mountainside gave me hope that they might be about to connect the Monsterverse with a little bit of Lovecraft, that this might have been 'unknown Kadath in the cold waste,' and the passageway the potential lair of Earth's last surviving 'Old Ones,' and their former servants, the Shoggothoi. No such luck. It was instead the passageway to 'Hollow Earth,' a fanciful theory from the 17th century which found favor with the Nazis, and more recently with the alt/far right, who are reviving it.

Within a couple of moments of the film taking us there, I wanted to know, in the center of the Earth, what is the light source? Where's the light coming from? It's stupid.

Kong finding the Shrine of the Titans, finding a weapon, and sitting upon the throne was a tiresome trope. It reminded me of Conan ('Conan the Barbarian' (1982)) finding the tomb of an Atlantean potentate and appropriating his sword, which led him to victory. It also reminded me of a video game trope, one of those quests: find the magical item - in this case, an axe fashioned from a Godzilla-type titan femur and one of the radioactive spines, which collects and concentrates atomic energy. Full Stop: If Godzilla and his unique properties were the result of atomic tests in the late 1940s/early 1950s (summarized in 'Godzilla vs Kong's opening montage), how is it we're seeing the remains of giant atomic titans and a shrine powered by their energy dating from time immemorial? C'mon, people. You're crapping up the franchise. Later film storylines are going to walk this stuff back, or just ignore it and take it a different direction.

It also somehow renders the imaginative universe in which these stories take place much smaller. Mysteries in the heart of the Earth? Nah- been there, seen that.

What perhaps annoyed me the most is the conspiracy-QAnon-bleach guy, Bernie Hayes, being the one with real insider knowledge and a handle on what's going on in the film. This kind of constitutes meta-commentary on the legitimacy of our society's QAnon nuts, implying that they might be right about some things. I do not appreciate that about this film. I can see how it might have made an inroad into this film's storyline through studio focus groups and attempts to find what society might find identifiable, data assembled during the heart of the Trump Administration and its far right madness, with internet trends being artificially magnified to make it seem like a more popular viewpoint; producers/writers at Warner Bros evidently thought this would make the film cool and trendy. But 'Godzilla vs Kong' has been released to the public after that particular ride came to an end on Nov 3 and Jan 20; its indulgence of the far-right mindset is already dead on arrival. They just shouldn't have put that in the film.

The film's entertainment value, for me, is ephemeral. A week from now, I won't be thinking about it anymore, and by the time of the next installment, I probably won't remember much about it.

You know how forgettable this movie's human characters and storylines are? I didn't even remember that Kyle Chandler or Millie Bobbie Brown were in the movie! Did they have roles? I mean, seriously, WTF?

I can remember the bit monster battles, but I literally cannot remember anything having to do with the humans. Their plots didn't even intersect at all. It was all a pointless waste of time.

by Fat Whores Rejoice!reply 8304/06/2021

r71 I thought Alexander Skarsgard was very forgettable in this role. Sadly, he's losing his looks if this movie is any indication.

by Fat Whores Rejoice!reply 8404/06/2021

R84, why cast Alexander Skarsgård at all, as a separate character? Wouldn't Kyle Chandler's character be a better fit, in-franchise?

Inconsistencies like this make it feel as if this film was contested by factions, internally, during its making.

And its validation of QAnon is just unacceptable.

Didn't the last movie with Kyle Chandler as the lead bomb at the boxoffice? They probably dropped him as the lead bc he doesn't have much star power to get butts into seats. He's a great actor, but more a supporting guy and definitely not leading man material. Most probably recognize his face but don't even know his name. Alexander Skarsgard just had a very successful year with Big Little Lies when he got the part in this movie. Too bad he's already middle-aged now and the big breakout role/movie career never happened.

The one thing that decreased the climax for me was how little the realm baddie was able to do onscreen before he emerged and they ran a train on him.

Those 60s Japanese monster movies are quaint and can be a bit dull at times, but they knew how to set up a final confrontation.

#GodzillaVsKong keeps smashing pandemic box office records

💰 $357.8M worldwide

💰 $70M domestic, overtaking 'Tenet' as top-grosser of the pandemic

💰 On track to turn a profit

It's amazing that $70 million domestic is considered a success now. Pre-pandemic everything under $200 million for a film with this budget would have been a huge flop.

John Carter made $70M domestic and is still considered as one of the biggest flops in history.

R118, "John Carter" was a ten times better movie than Godzilla vs Kong"

R118, we’re still in a pandemic. Expectations are adjusted accordingly. You should know that
