For real, I can vividly remember waiting for the first trailer to be released...

Hands down the best movie in the monsterverse.

Hands down my least favorite.  Can't call it Godzilla when the title character shows up A FULL HOUR INTO THE MOVIE.

What about darth vader? Or Alien? 

Plus Godzilla only gets around the same amount of screen time of screen time consistently across the MV films.  

I dont get this complaint bc even in the original it still takes a while for Goji to show up and when he does he doesnt stay, and we get short scenes with goji.

Plus Goji gets less screen time in the OG than 2014!!! 

It is very rare that Godzilla gets over 20 minutes in any of his movies released so far.  Most lf the movies range from 9-15 minutes of gojis total screentime.

Plus 2014 had the added benefit of having other monsters.

Darth Vader shows up in the first 5 minutes.

Technically, Godzilla showed up in the first few seconds.

Godzilla 2014 is the first legendary godzilla movie.

Yeah this is why I dont get the complaints about G 14' maybe because the characters bore some people is why people dislike how long godzilla takes.

Yeah, the human characters bore me.  Except for Ishiro, he is the man.

I think some of the issues with some of characters, like Ford, was due to some of the performances, rather than the writing. The Novelization for 2014 gives a lot more insight on Ford's character and motivation, which weren't as prominent in the movie due to Aaron Taylor-Johnson's more held back performance.

sonictiger

I would argue that Joe Brody is a pretty underappreciated character.

I honestly thought Ford was realisticly acted. Maybe a little bit more emotion could have been helpful. The only moments I think were weird is him joining the military against the mutos after Honolulu. But other than that really eveuthing that happens makes sense. He also is not the most proactive protagonist in MV

The reason that Ford joins up with the military was due to the fact that Godzilla, the Male MUTO and the military were heading toward San Francisco, where his family was. So, in his mind, joining up with the military would be the fastest way for him to get back to his family. He also wanted to help in the fight against the MUTO so that he could not only protect he family he had left (as that MUTO already killed both of his parents), but to also to help prevent other families from being torn apart by them as well, which is why he was so focused on reuniting the kid he saved on the monorail with his parents and was relived when the kid found his parents.

I liked Ford Brody, he was one of my favorite MV characters. Yeah, he rejoined the military to save his family. He was leagues better then the Russels who proactively were trying to destroy the world through their bafoonery (Petty revenge against Godzilla or reviving/freeing King Ghidorah)

Xenotaris, then Madison pretty much saved everyone's butts and she got zero credit and then they pulled a half-***ed redemption for Emma.

 

So Mark and Emma may have been buffoons.  But at least Madison was bright enough to see through Emma's BS.  Not to mention Mark was an idiot for not checking on Maddie before going to Hong Kong.  Terrible parenting smh.

To be fair for half the movie Madison didnt do much, her character arc was more dissalusionment with the lies her mother told her. 

Specifically Emma feels that Mark abandoned her and Madison beleives for half the movie.

Oh I remember you made a rewrite of GvK, did you do one of KoTM?

Yes Madison helped distract King Ghidorah but she didn't have a proactive role in KOTM like Ford Brody did in Godzilla 2014

Xenotaris

I kind of think that was the point. Madison has her will taken away by her parents. Thats why if she died or was injured it would be consequences for both of them.

Plus It might fit with the environmental theme more, because its bleak. And the environment isnt going to fix itself. Which is sort of how godzilla is treated in KOTM

MemberGiganMay-18-2022 4:40 PM

F it, I'm making a rewrite of KOTM.  Nobody is going to stop me this time, including myself.  This argument proves it.
