Due to time, I have a long list of movies old and new I have not seen. I don't go to theaters and just buy discs or stream. Is KOTM worth it or should I move on? The last Godzilla movie I saw was 2014 and while good enough, I never felt compelled to watch it again.

Godzilla: King of the monsters is one of the best cinema experiences I have had in quite a while.

Though really it was a good movie.

I saw it in IMAX, so it was quite....realistic I should say.

If you’re fine with watching a film that focuses more on the visual spectacle and less on the quality of the film, then Godzilla: King of the Monsters is the film for you. Despite having a stellar cast, the actors alone are unable to save the film with their talent, although some do manage to give their best which allows a general interest to develop for their character: Kyle Chandler, especially. One of the film’s saving graces, however, is the soundtrack by Bear McCreary. He does a phenomenal job.

I went in with low expectations (and glad I did) but the film is not all what the hype made it out to be. I was not impressed with it, but I felt the film was another byproduct of Hollywood attempting to produce their own film that comes from a foreign background without an understanding to what makes said film unique. Godzilla (2014) also overlooks as to what makes the titular character a representation of the atomic bomb; and Godzilla (1998), surprisingly, did a better job in attempting to recreate said aspect but failed to deliver in the end. Hollywood opts to entertain an audience rather than teach one with meaningful lessons.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters still feels like a Godzilla film, though I would rank it as one the worst Godzilla films in the franchise. And, with what’s been made in the MonsterVerse so far, only makes me hope that the MonsterVerse ends with Godzilla vs. Kong.

The Hooded Figure #TeamGodzilla Thanks for a thoughtful review! I think I will see it but set my expectations lower.

Oddly, I LIKED 1998 much to the Forum's chagrin!

I like Godzilla 1998, but only when I treat that Godzilla as Zilla. It seems ok then. But for a Godzilla... not sitting well with me. Kinda true to the original idea, but also messes up following the original idea as well.

Yeah, I like 98 as well. Though I think you already knew that ;w;

98 was alright for me. I thought it was rather bad, but it was bad enough to be good.

BANG!

I liked the creature itself. It was fast and agile- JP was big back then so maybe 98 picked up on that. I also liked the final scene in the stadium after the crushing bridge scene. It was a fist pumping YEAH moment!

Yeah, the baby zillas scene was "inspired" (copied) SO MANY SCENES FROM JURASSIC PARK

While I do respect your Opinion The Hooded Figure, I must respectfully disagree, as I believed that KOTM was a good movie. Sure, there were parts that we all could've done differently, but overall, i feel like Mike Dougherty did a good job and provided the fans with enough monster action for ONE movie. I'd honestly prefer KOTM to be split into two movies, since there were so many kaiju to fit into one movie

If you want to just turn your brain off and enjoy the spectacle sure.

More monster action doesn’t equate for a better film. Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla II and Godzilla vs. Monster Zero (both favorites of mine) prove that the amount of screen time Godzilla is given is irrelevant when determining the quality of the film. The former holding the most screen time for Godzilla but considered one of the worst in the franchise, and the latter holding the least amount of screen time for Godzilla but considered one of the best in the franchise.

And Godzilla: King of the Monsters did not have too many monsters that made it difficult to give screen time to. Two of the monsters (Godzilla and Ghidorah) were central to the film’s plot, another two (Mothra and Rodan) served a supporting role for the central monsters, and the rest (other Titans) were only featured to add context to the role of an Alpha. I’d say they were given the appropriate screen time needed for the film — even if a particular two (Mothra and Rodan) were not necessarily needed other than to please the fandom.

These kinds of topics and discussions really show how us fans might be fans of the same franchise but for different reasons. Some might consider the human plot, the action or the amount of kaiju screen time more in their overall view of the movie.

For me, the reason why I love KOTM is because of its portrayal of the Kaiju (which is also one of the main reasons I love this genre in general) and how they were reimagined for a new audience. Both the beauty and the terror of these creatures which might as well be gods. Whilst I agree with the problems people might have about the human plot, they were as well developed as most secondary characters because, in my eyes, the kaiju are the main characters and they were impressively characterized in this movie.

Godzilla: King of the monsters is one of the best cinema experiences I have had in quite a while.

If you don't watch it, then you're not a true godzilla fan. Also, the 1998 Godzilla movie SUCKED. One of the people that worked on it said that they took a jewel and turned into dust. They took him as they thought he really was, an animal acting on instinct.

I kinda think of him as Zilla, but I don't really care. I think he's cool.

I love Godzilla 1998's design. Sure she is not a traditional Godzilla. As I get older I also come to love all of the Godzilla's designs. Each series has its own rendition of the character, too bad Tristar Godzilla never got to shine in its own movie series but I guess that is why we have the animated series.

Showa's Godzilla was initially a tragic monster that suffered a mutation caused by atomic bomb testings and had to be put down by a WMD that was worse than the atomic bomb. Then latter became a guardian of the planet Earth in the second and third decade of the showa series.

Heisei's Godzilla returned to its villian roots its in debut film and gradually transformed into an anti-hero of sorts.

Tristar's Godzilla returns to its roots as a tragic monster mutated by atomic testing. Rather than being a dinosaur mutated by american nuclear bombs out in the pacific, it was a Marine Iguana mutated by french nuclear bomb testings out in the Atlantic. This Godzilla was going for a more naturalistic depiction of Godzilla.  

Millenium's Godzilla stuck with the anti-hero with its first two movies only to have him swap roles with King Ghidorah in GMK. The next two millenium movies pit him up against mechagodzilla before returning him to his role as antihero in Godzilla Final Wars.

Monsterverse's Godzilla return to Godzilla's later showa roots as a guardian and a fan-service to the Japanese Godzilla with top notch American special effects.

Reiwa's Godzilla went back to its tragic monster roots but amplified its powers considerably and again in the anime trilogy.
