That was truly, truly terrible.


MemberGiganMar-11-2021 9:05 PM

Why? I enjoyed it. It wasn’t the actual Godzilla theme but was reminiscent of the Beginning of the actual one. I don’t like the second part of this theme though. Hmmm.... actually I’m relistening, it’s not that great it’s ok for me though. Can we just use KOTM theme for Goji instead?


MemberGiganMar-11-2021 9:06 PM

Literally too lazy to rewrite my comment, I just started relistening halfway

AdminGodzillaMar-11-2021 9:12 PM

That's largely my problem. It's almost like they decided not to pay the licensing fees to use Ifukube's theme again, so they hired Holkenborg to write a low-rent knockoff with fewer instruments.

If he was going to write a new Godzilla theme it didn't have to be an Ifukube knockoff. There's plenty of great Godzilla themes that don't try to sound like Ifukube. For example:

Michiru Oshima's Godzilla Theme

Koh Otani's Godzilla Theme (I love this one)

Hell, Desplat's theme from the 2014 movie was more memorable, original and exciting.

This just feels cheap...


MemberGiganMar-11-2021 9:15 PM

It’s trying to be like the first one, but I listened to it and instead of following any musical pattern it just seems to be note played randomly, The minor and major scales are all over the place so I can’t tell if Godzilla should be menacing or Not.

I enjoy the GMK theme too


MemberGiganMar-11-2021 9:17 PM

My favorite Godzilla theme is this tho,

Godzilla Comes Ashore

G. H. (Gman)

AdminGodzillaMar-11-2021 9:29 PM

I enjoy that too. Generally, that portion of the theme is still heard with the more popular motif Ifukube came up with in 1962. I like it too. You can still hear a variation of it in latter movies. For example, it appears as an extension of Ifukube's 1962 theme at the 1:21 mark in this cue from Mothra vs. Godzilla: Godzilla Raids Nagoya

I wish McCreary had included that portion in Godzilla: King of the Monsters, but his score for that movie was so stellar I didn't miss it either.

This however... Yuck.


MemberGiganMar-11-2021 10:59 PM

Oh, I never noticed that! Thanks for sharing that with me.

G. H. (Gman)

AdminGodzillaMar-11-2021 11:21 PM

Yup. You can hear that portion of the theme in King Kong vs. Godzilla, Mothra vs. Godzilla, a variation of it in Ghidorah: The Three Headed Monster, Invasion of Astro-Monster, Destroy All Monsters, Godzilla vs. Gigan (stock music), Godzilla vs. Biollante (stock music), Godzilla vs. Mothra '92, Godzilla vs. MechaGodzilla II, Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla (stock music), Godzilla vs. Destoroyah, Godzilla x Megaguirus (stock music) and of course Shin Godzilla (stock music)


MemberMothra LarvaeMar-12-2021 4:35 AM

Man... if the music for the whole movie is going to sound like this.. I wonder how it's going to sound for the scenes with a whole bunch of action. Hopefully the music for the whole movie won't be this low.

Really wondering what Mechagodzilla's theme is going to sound like now.


MemberBaragonMar-12-2021 8:15 AM

Iffy.  Right along with the Kong theme on You Tube.

Have to wait and see how it plays out on film.


MemberGiganMar-12-2021 9:40 AM

I like the kotm theme better


MemberBaragonMar-12-2021 11:10 AM

Man those were great Hollywood noises, now where's the actual soundtrack?

Gabriel Salomon

MemberBaragonMar-12-2021 11:47 AM

Desplat and McCreary are sorely missed.


MemberGiganMar-12-2021 11:57 AM




MemberBaragonMar-12-2021 1:21 PM

@Gabriel Salomon

Yes.  It might be serviceable for the scene/mood of the movie, but not sure this CD will end up in my collection.

AdminGodzillaMar-12-2021 1:46 PM

Gabriel Salomon,
Louder for those in the back.
