Really wanted to like Shin Godzilla but felt the enormous majority of the movie was tiresome bureaucratic faff.

I can understand that, definitely. I'm sure you're aware that the bureaucracy stuff is satirical criticism of the government's response to the tsunami and Fukushima, but it doesn't necessarily become funny even once you get that. It's more despairing, I felt, which fits/creates the tone of the film. I love the various mutated versions, feels like he's a real nuclear cancer.

The other one I'd really recommend (beyond the original, which is the best by a long way) is Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack aka GMK. It's a direct follow-up to the original and completely ignores the rest of the series. Written and directed by the guy who did the very well-regarded Heisei Gamera trilogy, which basically got him this gig. It's got a darker millennial vibe, the lead actress is likeable and the human stuff is quite engaging. It also takes great delight in killing the annoying characters.

Best of all, once it kicks off, it properly kicks off.

TOTAL FUCKDOWN

enormously enjoyed this. it's utter pelch but lots of good monke action.

the only good thing about the old godzilla movies is laughing at how shonk they are. you can't be a film buff or a cineaste or whatever it is and also think godzilla is genuinely good, sorry.

Yeah I got that it was Fukushima satire along with with the obvious spectre of American imperialism present. It definitely felt like it succeeded in being incomprehensible if that was what it was aiming for. As I said, another watch is due.

Appreciate the zilla recs I think I will watch them x

No worries, dude. I definitely prefer the bleaker Godzilla films.

This was utter shite. Made no sense and as someone else mentioned, they used nearly every cliche from our thread.

Beyond parody.

Anyway, get back under the pile on, you!
Turning this into a legit Johnny Goodlizard thread, scouting for new recruits and everything. The absolute gall of the man.

cannot get my head around the human scenes, am I remembering it wrong or could you seriously just fuck Stranger Things and co from the entire film

Most humans are superfluous in Godzilla films. If you're watching them for the human plot you're doing it wrong and don't deserve to be watching Godzilla films.

But I suspect Mille Bobby Brown is the latest "Let's make (x) a thing" project. She wasn't quite as useless/annoying as her fat friend though.

What happened to Charles Dance's character from the last one? If they were gonna throw a third monster in the mix, I'd have put money on it being something to do with the severed Ghidorah head from that post-credits scene.

Destroyah for the next one?

I don't believe madhair60 really holds that opinion, or is someone to ever 'gatekeep' what people can enjoy. He is one of the least snobbish people on here.

Yes, dear.
He's poking you in the ribs because you don't really cope well with more direct displays of affection.

edit: Are you alright? Have I said something daft? Aw man, it makes me sad when you get all weird and serious with me like that. You're lovely, godzilla is lovely. One of the lads.

Sorry, I think I try and join in with jokes sometimes and I'm not very good at it. Sorry, man.

The short answer is please take my word that you've got nothing to apologise for. I am sorry if I seem serious but nothing to do with your post. I don't really want to go into it for various reasons. Let's get back to the good ol' G.

RRROOOOAAAAARRRRRR!!!

I know my tone is ambiguous at times but it was really nothing to do with you or anything you posted. Hope we can all sleep soundly! I am conking out now in fact. Grafting at 6 tomorrow so gonna listen to the Jurassic Park audiobook and dream of getting legged by a Godzilla.

Does the noise Godzilla makes and that noise Lenny Henry used to make exist in the same cinematic universe? Trying to get my canon straightened up here guys.

Thanks man. I can't cope! I never know whether I'm good boy or not! "is he trying to say I'm like that? I don't think I'm like that. Maybe I am like that. Maybe I'm a man of means, by no means, king of the chodes!"

Don't think much of this "honke vs clumph" so far, to be honest.
Just a couple of old melts clinching for an hour in an asda carpark.

I've heard of them but that's the first thing I've seen of them. As I say, no interest in the Western action movie take on Godzilla, really, nor the Japanese goofy friend of kids version, either.
