    We re-watched King of the Monsters last night and I liked it a hell of a lot better then I did seeing it in the theater. Super pumped to watch Kong from the comfort of my couch tonight.

    100% agree.

    This is what I wish to see, precisely: a giant lizard and a giant ape fight. Isn't that SUPPOSED to be the best thing about a movie that's basically called "Giant Lizard vs. Giant Ape?"

    It was alright. Entertaining for the most part. I guess it was better than King Of Monsters.

    I'm confused by the comments in this thread recently regarding King Of The Monsters. I thought that was easily the best of the 3. Was completely disappointed with Skull Island and thought Godzilla 1 was ok but had far too little scenes with Godzilla in them. Felt KOTM had just the right amount of giant monster fights and all of those scenes were great. Couldn't tell you what the human plot was about though, but as @elevenism pointed out above, couldn't care less about that aspect.

    I like Gareth Edwards' Godzilla the most when it comes to tone and really showing us the sense of scale. I just hate the acting/delivery of lines in King Of The Monsters. I need more than just monster fights. Godzilla vs Kong is pretty much Pacific Rim. They sprinkle in a couple of moments in GvK to give us some sense of how big these monsters are and how massive their destruction is, but Pacific Rim did it better than KotM and GvK. I am waiting for Legendary to tie them in together lol. I just found these got a little silly and somehow they managed to make the acting worst in KotM than G1. GvK acting is a step up from KotM. Edwards' Godzilla still is the best one in my opinion.

    I imagine the credits like this...

    Is Skull Island part of this universe? That one was REALLY good, in terms of having a big, interesting story.

    I don't NEED a big, interesting story, though. I just wanna see Godzilla fight King Kong with 2020 effects.

    I really enjoyed Godzilla vs. Kong, everything I was expecting, stupid human bullshit included. The fight scenes were awesome.

    I think they've built up some pretty good lore over these 4 movies, really hope they get the chance to make more but that seems kind of unlikely.

    I was thoroughly entertained. Seeing it on an IMAX screen with a full FUCK YOU level sound system was dope. Stupid human bullshit was toned down greatly from the last Godzilla, and I thought Millie Bobby Brown was pretty good in a more grown up role, as was the big dude from "Atlanta" as the paranoid conspiracy theorist. He got some good lines in. I actually thought the story here was less absurd than in the last Godzllla (it's still absurd). Hats off to everyone involved with the sound on this...so much work.

    The first fight scene btwn Gojira & Kong was pretty impressive from a blocking perspective to me.

    Also, no cut scene folks. Don't bother FF'ing your HBOMax, or just leave the theater when its over.

    This is definitely the best one since skull island. Thankfully they came to their sense and stopped cutting away from the action.

    The one thing I will say is that the human drama is still sooooo tedious in these movies. The reason sku island succeeded is because they trade the melodrama for fun and adventure, comedy and camp. Idk why all these monster movies always try to be so self serious

    About halfway through this movie that seriousness is abandoned for batshittery and it was all the better for it

    apparently this scene made it into the movie but I can't find the one gif I saw of it.

    well there's a youtube of it at least.

    This is when the movie came alive for me, it looked like the filmmakers actually had fun doing some of this shit! (Unlike King of the Monsters, where every second of film felt miserable and joyless)

    I know all the spoilers because that's how I roll, of course.

    Third wave of covid, movie theaters closed.

    FUCK EVERYTHING.

    Yeah the last two movies are all about edging in genre that doesn't want it
