Godzilla King of the Monsters


Long live the King...

Godzilla King of the Monsters might not be a particularly good film, but there’s just something about these flicks I just enjoy. I honestly think a lot of it has to do with the Godzilla roar. It’s the best monster movie sound ever, I fucking love it.

There’s way too many human characters, far too much uninteresting plot contrivances and long winded scenes of exposition and a lot of the action is hard to make out due to it being set at night, in storms and ‘shot’ with a lot of shaky cam and snap zoom ins to mega closeups.

But King Gihdorah is referred to as Monster Zero, Mothra is a healer and there are allusions to the twins and Godzilla is a big, surly bastard who just wants to chill out in his ancient city... so I don’t really care about the negatives because I’m not looking for this to be anything more than a fairly dumb kaiju movie, and that’s what it delivers.

The fact that there are some really stunning frames in there as well is a bonus.

Godzilla King of the Monsters; not particularly good, but I enjoyed it regardless.
