    Godzilla The King of Monsters

    So, I am...
    Calling out to all Godzilla fans to come on over with the Corellian Ale and talking about the King of Monsters!

    I am going to try and keep this thread updated and popular, if it gets going, but if not, then I will let it die. :[
    But anyways some topics are:
    -Godzilla King of Monsters (2019)
    -Latest Shin Godzilla
    -More Sequels
    -Not Just Godzilla...but the MonsterVerse is also open on here! ;)
    -And Best for Last, All Godzilla News!

    Have Fun!

    Excellent I will be watching Kong in a couple of weeks so it will be interesting how they tie it into Godzilla.
    I just hope there is no Godzuke this time.

    I liked the 2014 Godzilla. I liked that Edwards tried to go the Jaws route with it. Worth the risk. It's also brilliantly shot where every early shot of the monsters is from a human POV. No towering shots from the clouds...

    Well said! I agree! Most shots were if not all! Greatest Godzilla I think! ;)

    Same. I couldn't get to the theatres to see Kong but it looks good! Notice how they took out the King in Kong and it is just Kong. There's a reason! ;) But anyways I'll as well be seeing it in a couple of weeks! Stay tuned for the end scene when you're watching it. No spoilers but as of now the upcoming movies are:
    -Godzilla: King of Monsters (2019)
    Starring: Godzilla, Rodan, Mothra, and Ghidorah
    -Godzilla vs Kong (2020)
    Starring: Godzilla and Kong

    As of now! Things might change though!(unlikely)
    Great news though, right! ;)

    It's also a bit ironic, that Godzilla (2014) was the first one where Godzilla was a bit off focus in a way and different than the typical Godzilla films and here we are on a Star Wars forum where different suxxx! (PT) and too similar is garbage!!! (ST).

    It's almost like you can't please everyone

    Who do you guys think would win? I personally feel like Ghidorah may end up showing up in the ending of Godzilla vs Kong and it will have Godzilla and Kong take him down. But they will definetly have Godzilla and Kong face off first...almost like Batman vs Superman Dawn of Justice.

    That would be such a WB thing to duplicate it.
    If the movie is Kong vs Godzilla, just leave it as Kong vs Godzilla.
    Part of the issues with BvS were that it was VERSUS but they fought for 10(ish) minutes and then teamed up as super best friends.

    Kong vs Godzilla needs to be the movie. Constant struggles and battles. That has to be the highlight. Like BvS if you have Ghidorah show up at the end and they fight him, that's what you remember. Which is bad if the film is called Kong vs Godzilla.

    Neither has to "win"
    If Ghidorah shows up, it should be at the end and the next film should be the team up.

    Big Godzilla fan here as well. Been watching the big green guy since I was just a little kid. Actually just finished watching one that I had never gotten to see, Godzilla vs Biollante. With that one scratched off the list I can finally say that I've seen all the Heisei series Godzilla films. It was a weird film where Godzilla fought a giant mutated rose bush that had half of his DNA plus the spirit of a scientist's dead daughter, weird stuff, but enjoyable in its own convoluted way. Probably the most violent Godzilla fight of that series, and probably the best looking Godzilla suit as well.

    I also love the new 2014 Godzilla film as well as Skull Island. Neither were perfect, but both accomplished what they set out to do and were very enjoyable to watch, I can't wait for the next one in the series.

    I have more Godzilla thoughts, but it's getting late and I need to hit the sack. I'll rejoin this conversation later ;).

    You may be right. But if I had to say, I think Ghidorah we'll be on screen for the next one and possibly second one.

    Very Cool! Yah I have seen all in the Heisei Series and Godzilla vs Biollante was in my top 5. Excited to hear what else you have to say! What did you think about Godzilla Final Wars? Did you like...or no like? :D

    Final Wars was interesting... I liked parts of it and hated others. Seeing all the monsters is always a treat. Additionally, I loved both of the new Gigan suits as well as getting to see updates of other Godzilla monsters that we hadn't seen in decades. Seeing Godzilla go crazy on all the other monsters was a real treat as well. I think the best part might have been his incredibly short battle with Zilla(the 1998 Hollywood Godzilla). I love how Toho actually bought the rights to that version of Godzilla just so they could include him in the movie and show us how they really feel about him, hilarious stuff. Full disclosure, I actually enjoy the 98 Godzilla as fun monster movie, but yeah, it isn't really a Godzilla film.

    As for the stuff I didn't like, the human bits were seriously awful at points. Occasionally those scenes would cross into so bad it's good territory, but for the most part they were just bad. It was like I wasn't even watching a Godzilla movie in several of the longer action scenes. I get that some people like that over the top Power Rangers meets the Matrix meets Star Wars action stuff, but I seriously find it to be awful, especially when it's stretched out over agonisingly long sequences.

    I get that other Godzilla movies have played with stranger elements in their human sequences(like the ESP and time travel stuff in the Heisei series, not to mention all the strange stuff over the course of the Showa series), but that stuff should never distract from the monster fights once they get going, let alone try and compete with them for spectacle. If we never see the Earth Defense Force again, that'll be just fine with me.

    As for so bad it's good stuff though, the New York scene was hilarious. If that's how some people in Japan view New York, that is really funny.

    All in all, I would say the movies a pretty mixed bag, it does certain things really well for a Godzilla movie and it does other things terribly. I would still recommend it to Godzilla fans, but with the caveat that they should have the fast forward button nearby for the times when the human stuff gets unbearably bad. I still watch the good parts occasionally, but I doubt that I'll ever willingly sit through the whole thing again.

    Agreed! Yah, Final Wars was horrific with the people in the film. But I still watch the good parts like you.
    GIIIGAAAAN!!!! RISE!

    Well I got to see Kong today & it's a good fun film. Also I liked that they kept in that Kong is the protector of the island & the humans were the invaders & were so far out of ther league in try to fight him.
    It's going to be interesting how they incorporate Godzilla into this as they both should be on the same side as earths protectors so maybe they will introduce another classic monster for them to team up to fight.

    Seems kinda weird that we won't get Shin Godzilla on Blu-Ray until next year. Don't know what's up with that.
