Godzilla vs Kong

Trailer out and it's looking good. Not sure how it will play out as both are protagonists. Hopefully I will be able to watch this on the big screen.

There are at least 3 potential references there to Mechagodzilla, (so the internet claims).

They are visible. The first is the Tokyo street shot early on, that looks like a metal head. A tail shot later looks more metallic than organic.

Then there is the computer readout in Tokyo which appears to show a giant robot and its charge status.

So, is the misbehaving Godzilla actually Mechagodzilla? Seems a bit of a stretch.

You could be right. I am not sure about the head being metallic in Hong Kong (not Tokyo) but if you look behind Kong at about 2 mins in (after "the myths are real") you can clearly see alien space craft.

Given that Mechagodzilla is actually from space in the original this makes sense!

The last films for this pair have been nearly unwatchable, why should this be any better?

I'm amazed they keep ******* money away on them.

....and here we go again. The trolls are rating Kong Vs Godzilla 1 star on Rotten Tomatoes because their demanding that Warner Bros give in to their demands and continue the Snyderverse, otherwise they will "boicot" Warner Bros.

FFS!

It's not half bad.

The plot and human story lines, as with all the WB monster universe films, is pretty much non-existent but the fight scenes are great

Very fluffy film with no depth in, well, anything!

Decent fight scenes, particularly the rumbles at the end.

Overall it didn't feel as good as King of Monsters nor Skull Island because the lack of emotion but still very watchable.

I think this is probably the last film in the Monarch series right?

4K DV and Atmos on iTunes, so that's tonight sorted.

£15.99 is fine to rent, it's cheaper than the 4 of us going to the cinema.

Enjoyed this but the more I think about it the less sense it made. But then it is about a fight between a giant gorilla and huge lizard.

I thought it was alright. I think the years of superhero movies has desensitised me to people throwing each other around cities.

To be fair, the enormous Titans left less damage that Superman and Zod

Thought it was a bit predictable with some stunning and also terrible special effects.

I was looking forward to this, but I honestly found it quite boring for most of the running time.

The 'plot' & every human character apart from the little deaf girl were absolutely appalling. I know it's not really what we're watching this type of film for, but is it that hard for professional screenwriters to create remotely convincing characters or storylines that make sense?

Millie Bobby Brown & her little crew were all intensely irritating & I felt genuinely sorry for Kyle Chandler, who only seemed to be there to look confused.

& Alexander Skarsgard needs to hand in his Screen Actor's Guild card for his performance in this. I've seen better acting in the local nativity play.

I did enjoy the titan fights, but even after decades of watching superheroes throwing each other through buildings, I was still thinking about the thousands of people who must have died in the third act rumble.
