Gigan and Ghidorah are basically space mercenaries. They work for whoever is willing to pay. What kind of super villain can’t spot a few bucks for a henchman.

You know I took this at face value as a kid but reading it now... There's a lot of unanswered questions here.

What currency do you use to pay space monsters?
How do you communicate?
Is there some kind of contract (neither monster even has hands...)
Are there more space monsters? A union?

Also interesting, the actress playing the ecoterrorist lady noted in an interview that her character has invented a device that lets her speak with the kaiju - and, she believes, control them.

I'll take "Jesus Christ That's A Bad Idea" for 500.

The comic half century war has a Kaiju attracting plot thingy that wouldn't be too dumb for a movie.

Film looks awesome and the Godzilla + jets scene sent me straight back to being a little kid cheering for Godzilla to save the earth. He's so grumpy now too!

I'm wondering if they'll use the same Godzilla design as Shin in a new Japanese Godzilla film or change it up. I liked Shin's weird, gross design a lot but I think the American Godzilla is just mastercraft.


Tell that to the commander-in-chief.

It's hard to imagine shin Godzilla throwing down with king Ghidorah or wrestling Rodan. I think they'll need a new design if they're going to do G v

I'm actually not that big a fan of Shin's final form but his tadpole/amphibious stage is loving terrifying.
His final form just lacks mobility, which you think he'd have more of when you realize a lot of his extra bulk was applied via CGI in post. He just doesn't move enough to feel real to me, which was not a problem his tadpole form had.

I actually liked that it was very uprite and architectural in it's final form. Gave Godzilla a kind of unnatural menace. To me, the stiffness plus the hands give off this feeling that existing is painful for him. The lower forms feel that way too but in a more spazzy way. maybe there's something there about shin Godzilla's nature.

Also noticed how much he moved when raging out at being actually hurt to then freezing solid to recover. Like an earthquake or something.

Still can't see him holding down a muto and blasting off it's face.

It should be Jet Jaeger, and spawn a Godzilla vs Pacific Rim crossover.

Nerd alert but I remember sitting in Pacific rim and wishing so hard there was some kind of secret Godzilla tie-in because watching a giant monster movie with modern effects made me so nostalgic for being a kid and looking past bad fx to cheer for Godzilla to save the day. Pacific Rim was cool enough but I was too old to really feel that emotional connection.

Shin Godzilla was good but I think Godzilla as disinterested yet heroic is the best place for the character. Godzilla 2014 wasn't perfect but I was a grown rear end man that almost jumped out of my chair when those back scales lit up.

This is part of why that Godzilla anime was such a frustrating let down. The idea is such a perfect endgame "Godzilla happened and is truly King of the Monsters, now what?" scenario that allows for all kinds of cool poo poo, but then we got what we got.

It costs the exact same to animate people as it does to animate Kaiju (I assume) and yet they still managed to make it a talky boring POS movie.

I wonder if toho said "don't make it all monster fights" in the sense that there needs to be a narrative and reasons to care but the team took it very literally.

Mechagodzilla city was a cool idea and even though turning into literal mechagodzilla would have been obvious they could have made it work I think.

In terms of branding, yeah, Kong was the favorite. I'm talking physically. Even in KKvG, where he was beefed up to Godzilla's size, Kong was portrayed pretty solidly as having to fight an uphill battle. The only thing that saved him at the end was the lightning storm.

It might be cheesetastic but judging by what we've seen legendary could do one heck of an angry lightning-kong scene.

Godzilla 85 was the only version available at Blockbuster and the newest Godzilla movie on offer so I watched the crap out of it. I also only saw the original in American form so I assumed that toho cast some white people to further tie in the whole WWII theme and maybe increase international appeal.

They really have kept the G'14 approach of scale. And King G is unapologetically sinister. I love it. The MUTOs actually had a kind of warmth to them due to their need to reproduce but not the Dragon. Man.

There is that one part where the mutos meet up and do that kinda bird beak rub/touch... Thing.

If I remember right the female is visibly upset when Godzilla swats the male.

They did *such* a good job in g14 with the Kaiju as characters.

The shot where Rodan smiles devilishly at the jet fighters is amazing. Like maybe the script is rough it parts due to who knows what, but it kills it where it counts.

They did a stellar job with all the monster expressions and personality. I feel like that's often lost because of the uneven human bits and pacing.
