Godzilla Vs. Kong: Is It Going To Be A Good Movie Or Bad Movie?7,097 Views72 RepliesAdd A Reply
Anyways based on the previous efforts, I think GvK will be a good movie. I never did see 2014 Godzilla but I did see Kong: Skull Island and Godzilla: King Of The Monsters and those were good movies. There is the reputation of crossover brawlers to worry about though. Most of these iconic character brawls like Batman v. Superman: Dawn Of Justice and Alien Vs. Predator have been regarded as bad movies, but some of these movies have been well-received (examples: Freddy Vs. Jason (I never watched that), Captain America: Civil War). The trailers have done a great job of selling the idea and hopefully the movie will live up to it's promise, scale, and hype.
My Verdict: It may not be a perfect movie, but I think it will still be a great movie.
Number scale prediction: 8/10
If you want to share your thoughts about if Godzilla Vs. Kong will be good or bad, please comment!
*Cringes in the fact that I've only watched the WB MonsterVerse movies*
I recommend watching the old godzilla films, most are hit or miss but they are fun to watch.
On a side note, most Showa Godzilla movies post-Destroy All Monsters relied heavily on stock footage from previous films except for Godzilla vs Mechagodzilla.
90's Heisei series borrows heavily from certain popular American movies
The millennium series are just stand-alone films except Godzilla against Mechagodzilla and Tokyo SOS
The Reiwa series so far includes one live action movie, Shin Godzilla, while the rest of the current Reiwa movies are anime.
Yeah, but I'll decide after Godzilla Vs. Kong comes out.
Not to spiral so far off topic (which we have already), but the Exif being a spin on the Xilliens where they don't have control over the monsters is an interesting direction to take them.
The Bilusaludo were also inspired by the aliens from Blackhole Planet 3 and they were controlled by their "monster" in a psychological reverence as well. Part of the anime's schtick is how the monsters transcend the physical and thematic versions of what we're used too. The turning of the tables on alien races that normally have full control of these things was an excellent way to get that across. So I don't mind the take.
I noticed the Bilasaludo thing too.
The Anime also had an interesting that Kaiju were a filter for civilization. Filter being a challenge that only some civilizations can successfully beat. When civilizations be advanced enough, kaiju appear. All these filters are theoretical science in the real world, but I found the concept very interesting.
When talking about the Anime most people complain about the lack of action. I’ve never had that problem. The only thing that I might change is to have the rest of Ghidorah appear and descend on Godzilla after a while to raise stakes. And make Ghidorah more desperate to return to the Void.
I don't have any issue with the Exif being an alternate counterpart to the Xiliens. I was just pointing out the difference between the two species. I would have had the Exif just flat out be xiliens since Toho produced the anime, they shouldn't have any licensing problems
We totally went off topic Gman.
I think it’s a good thing
Sorta. Toho produced it in the same way they did Legendary's movies. It was Polygon's production, so everything licensed had to be vetted by Toho.
Because if we stayed on the same topic the entire time, then the discussion wouldn’t continue
