I'm back...with mixed feelings about Godzilla Vs. Kong's sequel571 Views17 RepliesAdd A Reply
At first, I was hyped when this movie was announced. But seeing the entire team of the first movie returning has got me worried. Yes, I'm excited to see Godzilla and King Kong team up and beat on some other kaijus. I'm excited to see what they do with Hollow Earth, as it's a concept that's really interesting. But everything else isn't all too promising. The human characters will probably be dull and boring, even more so now that they're seemingly removing any human connections to the previous movies before GVK. That isn't me complaining about Madison's omission, but there were more interesting humans in the other 3 movies leading up to Godzilla Vs. Kong and the only somewhat interesting character (Jia) introduced in that movie is actually coming back, and I hope they can do more with that aspect. The same writing team means that the story will be more pandering to the Titan side of things, but that still leaves us with the humans and their bad dialogue. While Junkie XL isn't a bad choice for a returning composer, Bear McCreary would've been my ideal return. The point is, the movie still looks fun. But the fact that it's seemingly not learning from the mistakes of the past means that this could be a potentially worse movie, and hopefully I'm proven wrong. But I assume it'll be fine, at least, at minimum.
Let me know what you guys think in the comments!
Ranked Rodan now...awesome.
Nice to see you!
I need my rank back
Also im just on reiwa now
I'm still Gigan
Anyhow, thoughts on my mixed feelings?
I am not sure how I feel about the whole monsterverse movies, I need to binge watch them all to get a better perspective.
nice to have you back.
I enjoy monsterverse films, but i dont like the mixing of godzilla and modern day american culture. like the shop scene with the reference to prank channels on youtube in gvk. it did not blend well at all with the rest of the movie.
I also really dont appreciate all the sh!tty youtube videos it spawned that go something like "INSANE GODZILLA CHALLENGE!!!!!" or "REACTING TO GODZILLA'S TRAGIC DEATH!!!!!: im not mad with the films. just mad with the impact.
Honestly, after GvK, I don't think I could lower my expectations any further than they already have been and don't really care if the movie gets released or not.
I'll admit to having a modi*** more interest in the series, but only because Kurt Russell is in it.
G. H. (Gman), Kurt Russell is sure to be good in this MONARCH show. As long Godzilla shows up for more than 5 minutes, I'm all here for it.
monsterzero9, not bringing back Madison and instead bringing back Bernie also is Legendary learning the wrong lesson from the Team Godzilla subplot. They seemed to think that Twitter tore that apart because of who was commanding that side of the story, because they all called it the "bad Millie Bobby Brown subplot." It was the awful comedy bits like the thing you said: "The shop scene with the reference to prank channels on YouTube in GVK." They need to get better writers and write better material for these actors who pour their work into stuff like this.
Another thing, Bear McCreary needs to come back for the show at LEAST.
“None of this makes any sense, it doesn't matter.” - Adam Wingard, Godzilla vs. Kong commentary
Says everything I need to hear to torpedo any faith in this movie.
I have been reflecting and I am sorry G. H. (Gman) for getting in fights with you regarding everything godzilla related. I think I am slowly loosing interest in the monsterverse, I mean starting with King of the Monsters, it feels like they are rehashing old movie plots.
But honestly after GVK my interest in MV just dropped off. Maybe the series could be ineteresting. Buti dont have much hope
dang, the old gangs all here.
dang, the old gangs all here.
Honestly, Madison was the last human character that I was truly interested in and now she's gone, also Godzilla being under-utilized is looking likely and Kong's MV journey being extended longer than it needs to worries me. And if these movies get increasingly dumber and more rehashy I think I'll jump ship after GVK 2 and the Apple TV Plus series and focus on watching Toho's full library of Godzilla films.
“None of this makes any sense, it doesn't matter.” Adam Wingard's quote is making me question my opinions on the MonsterVerse. But hey G. H. (Gman), I wouldn't expect much from the guy whose Kaiju showdown was the only well-reviewed movie of his entire directing career. I'm not joking either.
