Re: Godzilla & Kaiju General!

That’s not quite right. For the first month or two, all domestic ticket sales profits go to the studios for most theaters. And worldwide markets have grossed $400 million in the past for other MonsterVerse films, so this shouldn’t be any different. EDIT: I’ve read from two different sources that th...

Re: Godzilla & Kaiju General!

If things continue in the direction they're currently heading it looks like Godzilla vs Kong will be the final installment of the Monsterverse. While it might have won the weekend box office, King of the Monsters opened below already low projections in almost every market and is flirting with potent...

Sounds like another downgrade for a Disney classic. I'll never forgive what was done to Beauty and the Beast. Hard pass.

Re: Godzilla & Kaiju General!

Critics have been hostile towards the third entry of the MonsterVerse thus far. At the moment, Godzilla: King of the Monsters has a 44% critic score on Rotten Tomatoes and 48% critic score on Metacritic. Although it's projected to dominate the box office this weekend, its overall domestic commercial...

Re: Shin Gojira (a.k.a. Godzilla Resurgence)

I like your metaphor and I agree with your reading of the film. Though I am puzzled as to why some people are so intent on believing Shin Godzilla has some sinister agenda. Godzilla vs King Ghidorah has the more questionable "subtext" and the same individuals criticizing Shin Godzilla are ...

Re: Godzilla & Kaiju General!

And just to make it even more infuriating and gross, Haruo doesn't even figure out which of the twins he's with until she's naked in front of him . Like, the movie goes WAY out of its way to prove that these are, in fact, undeniably, the Fairy Twins from the Mothra lore, despite Mothra not being im...

Re: Shin Gojira (a.k.a. Godzilla Resurgence)

I guess some people are still sensitive about Japan being left to its own devices since they still haven't properly apologized (many people aren't satisfied with how Japan has handled the matter and the war crime denials/downplaying by some politicians don't help) to the victims of its imperial ambi...

Anno in charge of an Ultraman movie? That would be a dream come true for him. And another reason to delay the last Rebuild I suppose.

Re: Shin Gojira (a.k.a. Godzilla Resurgence)

Here's an example: With its Fukushima response metaphor, Shin Godzilla isn't critiquing the Japanese government as a whole. It's criticizing the previous administration that was in power during that disaster. It represents an indictment of the DPJ. The incompetent Prime Minister and government burea...

Re: Shin Gojira (a.k.a. Godzilla Resurgence)

The "scholars" of the Godzilla community were really outspoken about how nationalistic this movie is back when it came out. In the recent biography for Ishiro Honda, the authors took a jab at Shin Godzilla . They said something to the effect that it trades Ishiro Honda's universal and paci...

Re: Godzilla & Kaiju General!

Glad to see someone support a theory of mine. For some time now I've suspected that a lot of the love for the Heisei films (specifically the ones from the 90s) comes from how they emphasize Godzilla over everything else. That, the largely consistent Godzilla design, and the pseudo-continuity is what...

Re: Godzilla & Kaiju General!

Isn't Space Godzilla universally agreed to be worse then them? I find vs MG & Destroyah to be fantastic. Godzilla vs Mothra is usually listed only second to Godzilla vs SpaceGodzilla as the bottom of the barrel of the 90s films. And I never understood the love for Destoroyah . Yeah, people are ...

Re: Godzilla & Kaiju General!

Takao Okawara was a pretty mediocre director and he never got a handle on managing his human players. His contributions ( Godzilla vs Mothra , Godzilla vs MechaGodzilla II , and Godzilla vs Destoroyah ) are among the weakest of its decade and the franchise. I find the human element in his work sever...
