Don’t get me wrong, I really dig Michael Dougherty, but having a Godzilla film without human characters is a horrible idea in my opinion.

I'd love to see the humans get the boot. They are all just filler space that are boring as church as we wait for Godzilla. I edited out all the humans from 1954-2004 back in the day. 25 hours of pure Godzilla kicking ass! Large Super Dragon Godzilla continuity! It paved way for my Suitmation fan film "Wisconsin Godzilla" the story of how Quetzalcoatl supercharged Godzilla with holy fire to drive off King Ghidorah and Bagan! No human bull****! Amen!

Well, that’s fine if you think so. I feel that we need humans in Godzilla so we can have a film with substance, and isn’t just a mindless Michael Bay-esque action flick.

 Titan of Water,
Agreed. As someone who watches Monster Zero solely for the cast, I can't agree they're boring all boring. Sure, there's Godzilla movies where the cast isn't interesting, but there's also some fine characters in many of them. In fact I've learned that the Godzilla movies with the most monster screen time tend to be my least favorite.

On the topic of Dougherty though, I think he's straddling a line. He worded it just carefully enough. Granted, these movies aren't "famous" for their characters. And yeah, they aren't the main event--the title creatures are. I get that, but it doesn't mean there aren't enjoyable characters in these films.

Had he flat out said these movies don't have a repertoire of interesting characters, that would've turned me completely off.

*I can't agree they're all boring.

The edit feature is in need of an overhaul.
