Oh, I'm skipping it. Fool me twice and all that.

Well, I basically had to watch it simply because I'm deep into the history of Godzilla films and all that. In fact, I'm probably gonna watch them all again soon just to really see how and why this thing is the way it is beyond, ya know, Toho spreading a script too thin and all.

It's weird that they decided to make a one film script into three movies but padded it out with the least entertaining shit. Budget issue or something?

I've no idea. The climax with the most movement occurred in the first two films, and this whole Ghidorah thing almost feels tacked on, which is a difficult thing accomplished seeing as how the movies had two different alien races for their respective monsters. (Mechagodzilla and Ghidorah.) So they're clearly planned early enough for something cool to happen, but the final kaiju battle still kinda flops with a boring and motionless thud.

Boring and motionless thud is the core of the creature design for the project.

To be fair, Godzilla did lethargically swipe his left arm a whole two times at one of Ghidorah’s spaghetti necks. It didn’t do anything because Ghidorah’s a god and it phased right through, but I was surprised that Godzilla’s CGI model was even tooled to move that way to begin with.

I thought they bought a rubber Godzilla ‘14 toy and rotoscoped it.

Just got done watching the uncut version of Godzilla 2000 Millenium for the very first time. Shame they concentrated a lot on the human scenes because they tend to get clunky and on the verge of boring while one is impatiently waiting for the inevitable monster duel which should've been top priority from the get go. :irked:
