But G has been doing that stand in water thing for about 65 years. Don't know why it's suddenly an issue, mind you I haven't seen it yet. I'm guessing when people don't like a film they nitpick shit?

I always assumed he was just in the shallow part of the ocean?

Nah, he wasn't and it is a kinda weird seen in the movie. I was wondering the same thing on how he would kinda walk/stand on water. lol

But, I still loved the movie.

No... but concept art from the "Art Of" book shows, among others, Gigan, Anguirus, Kumonga, Spiga, Gamera (?!), and even a possible Pacific Rim crossover with Otachi.

Saw it tonight. Loved it. The most "Godzilla" Godzilla film the US has ever produced. Looking forward to GvK.

I really liked Godzilla KOTM. The human characters were better than I expected. And the monster action was excellent. It was a really fun movie. My 19 year old daughter (who is a Godzilla fan, but also a harsh critic sometimes) liked it, too.

It will definitely be rewatchable in a big way. I'm really looking forward to Godzilla VS Kong next year.

Re: Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019, D: Michael Dougherty) -- The Spoiler Filled Reviews Thread

I thought it was great. I agree on the editing being terrible for the battles but overall the battles were pretty spectacular. I find it funny that people are complaining they wanted more monsters in this movie. They jam packed it with monsters and each of the main four had a really good amount of screentime. Yeah there were some issues and characters behaving idiotically. Especially the pilots. They're acting like they're fighting with biplanes and bullets with how close they get to the kaiju instead of missiles that usually don't need line of sight and can fire beyond the horizon. But then it wouldn't be as exciting.

The one thing that really irritated me was Bradley Whitford's character. I don't really have an issue with the actor but every single one of his lines were so incredibly cringeworthy. I was disappointed the whole Oh my god....ZILLA! part was in it. Also That is one juiced lizard!!

8/10 for me

Even if King Kong vs. Godzilla is the last of the monsterverse I think 4 good movies is a pretty good run. And yeah I am disappointed with the BO for this movie but honestly how many people are really in the Godzilla fanbase? IMHO It's a pretty niche fanbase for a huge summer blockbuster. I for one am just thankful we got what we did.

I meant to bring this up when I saw the movie... Did anyone else notice the cabin in this was the same as the Tony's in Endgame? I'm pretty positive it was the same. Both films shot in Atlanta. I bring it up now because it is in the news that you can airbnb it: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/2301826...mL3%2B%2BHmRu1

Re: Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019, D: Michael Dougherty) -- The Spoiler Filled Reviews Thread

When Vera Farmiga's character was video chatting with the Monarch crew, her video feed would show video clips showing examples of whatever bad thing she was talking about at the moment. Did she have those clips already queued up and ready to weave into her talk with them? Is this something she prepared in advance?

That is so cool. So tempted to stay there.

While I loved the monster action in this, I would love to see more monster action in broad daylight as opposed to rainy, cloudly, lightning filled, dark skies.
The family drama plot really bogged an otherwise enjoyable film down immensely; a real waste of actual acting talent for what amounted to little more than 30-40 minutes of time padding. Still, better than Godzilla (2014) though, but nowhere near as fun as Kong: Skull Island.

I saw this while on vacation in Thailand a few weeks ago. Overall I'd give it 3 1/2 stars and probably a B.

The monster action was awesome. But, there really wasn't any human character that was truly likable. I love Kyle Chandler and Vera Farmiga, but both of their characters were assholes,

I have a confession - for the first 30 minutes I thought the family was the same couple from the 2014 movie and I had forgotten about a kid or something. Once I realized they were different, I enjoyed the movie a lot more. I look forward to a rewatch without that bogging me down.

Saw this last night. Definitely a steaming hot mess.

At least the introductions to Ghidorah, Mothra & Rodan were interesting.
