    i was so disappointed that the child in the new one wasn't dubbed over by a middle-aged woman.

    Funny you should pick that particular movie. That was my first Godzilla movie and because of that, still my favorite!

    Mom and dad took us to the Richmond Drive-In in Richmond, KY to watch Godzilla on the big screen and eat drive-in hot dogs... pure magic.

    Itís 5 billion times better than the 2014 one. Has more monster on monster action than most kaiju movies and is arguably way better than an American Godzilla movie should be. It also has all the classic musical scores and themes thank goodness which was desperately missed in the previous outing. GO SEE IT! A few times even.


    Also the human plot isnít half bad. Itís not gonna win Oscars but itís easily as deep as any Marvel movie or summer blockbuster.

    Definitely loved hearing the iconic Ifukube theme in the movie.

    Just saw it this afternoon. I wasn't disappointed in it. As mentioned above, lots of monster on monster stuff going on which is awesome!

    My first Godzilla film (and still one of my three favorites) was Godzilla vs. the Smog Monster. So I like the ones with environmental messages.

    That said, I really enjoyed KOTM. It was a fun monstery beat 'em up.

    I didn't see it yet but I read a review that said, if you like Godzilla movies you'll like it, if you don't like Godzilla movies you wont like it.

    Sounds like a winner

    That's a pretty apt review.

    That's certainly the case. It's a love letter to classic Kaiju movies.

    And really, that's been the issue with any American attempts at Godzilla (or any other giant monsters for the most part) up to this point. They try not to appeal the fan base, but instead to the "broader audience" and you end up with a movie that doesn't appeal to either. This works on pretty much every level.
