This is actually one of my problems with the movie, we just jump from one location to the next with thousands of miles in-between and no sense of the scale involved. Game of Thrones syndrome. The 2014 movie did it much better, showing both the time spent by Godzilla, the MUTOs, and the humans traveling across thousands of miles of the Pacific (or in the case of the female MUTO, from Yucca Mountain to Frisco)
Nobody wants to see Godzilla's commute. They want monster battles.
Godzilla should never be presented as a face. Godzilla does what Godzilla wants because he's mother fucking Godzilla. I'm remembering one of the times in one of the old movies that the humans were asking for his help and he was like, fuck them people who always be shooting at me n shit. He'd end up fighting other monsters because that's what he does, not because he gives a fuck about humans.
I have not seen the new movie yet but I fucking despised the last one. I'll get around to watching it sooner or later but it won't be at the theater this time. How badly that last one pissed me off killed any chance of me spending money to see this one.
In one movie they had to summon Mothra to take down Godzilla because he was destroying everything. He didn't seem to be a face until the movies got weird but after 100 movies it's bound to get silly.
I knew they were going to do this after the first one when the caption of "Godzilla friend or foe?" came up. I was like he destroyed a city with millions of people to settle a grudge match because he could let the MUTOs mate or else they'd be a huge threat to him (This is ignore in this film.) and the radiate a city cause hundreds of thousands, if not millions of deaths. Yet he maybe a friend? HA!
The only monsters that should have any dealings with Humanity are Mothra, Kong and maybe Rodan. The rest shouldn't even see us as anything but there.
I have been watching these movies for 30 years, and do I dare say that this is my favorite version of King Ghidorah?
I dare say that too, the Heisei version will always hold a place in my heart as it was the first one I ever saw but they were able to do some things they just couldn't do with the practical effects. Seeing him make facial expressions close up probably sealed it, I was surprised how much personality he gave off like one of the heads being a bit dense. He oozed menace.
I got Austin/Rock vibes when he and Godzilla faced off (I mean Godzilla even had his own entrance theme XD), it was different to G hunting the MUTOs you could tell these two fucking hate each other and I loved that. KG was the ultimate heel and I hope the post-credits scene means he's returning in perhaps in a Mecha form or maybe even through some version of Monster X.
I had some misgivings about the film like maybe it was a little too fast-paced, Rodan being a bit wasted, Serizawa not getting an eyepatch and most of all the way it suddenly introduced the Oxygen Destroyer but ultimately I had way too of a time to give it anything but my utmost love.
