    I don't know if it's possible for me to be more excited for this film. I just hope they fully learned their lesson, and accept that we want to see kaiju fights, not human drama.

    One of my best friends is an even bigger nerd than me (if that's possible), and like me, a huge Godzilla fan, and he said it's amazing. Everything we wanted from the first movie. Monsters fighting. I'm a little more inclined to believe my friend.

    I totally agree with your friend, CSM. The reviews seem to be talking about a different film than the one that actually played on cinema screens.

    It's almost as if the critics collectively decided to hate the movie and searched to find faults in it that either didn't actually exist, or which might have been present to a degree, but which they have chosen to exaggerate.

    A greatly entertaining film - and a big step up, I thought, from the 2014 one.

    One of my friends really liked this movie too. I posted this review on my FB page, but he hasn’t acknowledged it.

    I still haven't seen it, so I can't make a judgement call on it, but I don't hate the 2014 film. It's just not a Godzilla movie. In the end, I still blame Gareth Edwards. He is a brilliant visual director, but he seems to lose the narrative. Same with Rogue One. I love that movie, but even now, I still claim the first act is a mess. It doesn't really find its feet until the second act, where it becomes a really good Star Wars film (you know, for those of us who read the books and comics and played the video games). But his cardinal error was when he teased Vader in the film, and we get a handful of minutes with him. We do get his best action sequence ever at the end, but he didn't deliver what the "fans" wanted. This holds true with Godzilla, in that, we wanted - crazy as it may sound - Godzilla in a Godzilla film. We didn't want to see a fight start, only to have the camera scroll over to more human drama.

    Either way, I want to see this movie. You could have just two hours of kaiju fighting, with no humans at all, and I would be happy.

    The 2014 film bored the piss out of me...

    2 hours of listening to forgettable Human characters spouting forgettable dialogue and maybe 10 minutes of trying to spot a CGI at night..?

    I know I shall probably have to enter the Witness Protection Program for this, but I preferred the 1998 version. :emoji_pensive:
