Was it? Cuz, in my circle, they're split. But you're right, I'm not a Godzilla fan. I much preferred Pacific Rim (the first movie.)Darrin Kelley wrote: ↑Sat Jun 22, 2019 4:52 pmThis was a movie for Godzilla fans. Not general audiences. It didn't do a good job of explaining things to people new to the property. They focused too much on the human drama. Where they should have been giving a more deep explanation of the setting. So yeah. They dropped the ball on this.
The place to talk about your favorite movies, tv series, cartoons, music and theater.
I'm a fan of Pacific Rim as well. It has its own charm.
Godzilla is something else entirely. And i'm not really keen on seeing the two mix. Because it would result in the dilution of both.
But since you are not a Godzilla fan. Most of the references and call-backs were completely lost on you. Most of those easter-eggs carefully inserted into the movie you didn't understand. And that's a shame. Because it was full of references to the full history of Toho monster movies.
