Godzilla vs. Kong (Probably spoilers at some point)


Recommended Posts

I'm not gonna lie. I LOVED that movie. It had enough plot to actually tell enough of a story but it knew exactly what it was going for.

 

I knew it was going to be good when the opening credits basically turn into a March Madness type bracket with Godzilla and Kong matching up in the championship.

I honestly didn’t watch the last Godzilla or Kong movies. I assume those are basically unnecessary going in?

I never watched a single Kong movie and I don't think it took anything away. I'm sure a lot of the plot is pushed along from Godzilla: King of the Monsters the most but ultimately I don't think details of the humans involved in previous movies are actually that necessary

Somehow I figured deep plot details were about as important as in a porn flick...

I'm a fan of the whole monsterverse. Been waiting a long time for this one. I wasn't disappointed. However if I were to complain about it; like somebody said "This movie needs a Zack Snyder cut because certain parts felt rushed"...After reading that I actually agreed. Does it need to be 4 hours? No, but I was kinda surprised how short it was considering how big both monsters are.

 

And I didn't really like how vulnerable they made Kong...From a movie making perspective I understand, because you need a monster fans will indentify with and feel an emotional connection, to draw the audience in more. But Ida liked to see Kong a little more invincible...He was saved 3 times by humans where by all means he coulda died. Then Godzilla gave him two passes lol.

They we're good movies. But not really necessary to watch. I'd recommend watching the other movies just because they are good. But if you ever watched any Godzilla or Kong movies in the past you will understand the universe they are in.

I'll surely watch the movie and enjoy it if I get the chance.  The F-A-C-T is Godzilla is a badass giant Dino with razor sharp teeth and he can blow 500,000c fire out of his mouth.  King Kong is a giant gorilla/monkey armed with a bad ass right hook and is susceptible to getting distracted by a piece of ass.  No Contest.

True.  Going in you plan on seeing somebody getting F'd (up).

 

Would be quite the twist though to suddenly roll into some French New Wace Cinema Auteur where after seeing a red ballon drift by they sit down and the rest of the movie is just the two of them having dinner, smoking, discussing how meaningless it all is while they casually swat tanks and choppers from time to time.

LOL at the French New Wave mention.  Actually it’s not all that bad, Truffaut is pretty interesting and Chabrol manages to combine class critique and violence into almost all his movies.

Funny thing is you really can't spoil much because everything happens pretty much how you expect lol. But the movie was still really good.

There are totally massive spoilers. Maybe not by any stretch of the imagination but major spoilers nonetheless.

I enjoyed this movie thoroughly.  I fucking LOVED how they didn't play up the dumb monkey like he was an equal to Godzilla.  I'm fine with the whole Kong dropping his weapon and the lizard marching off.  The silliness of all the other shit only helps make the really stupid shit bearable.  I may check out Skull Island now since I know how this fight turns out.
