The only way to ever get to a consistent viewpoint here is to do the AVF x/10 across a set of categories based on what goes into film-making and give an averageBUT, and this is why I HATE scores, where the hell are these 2s and 3s coming from?
I think you nailed it. Really looking forward to getting the disc on July 31.Reading through these comments it seems you need to set your expectations that you are about to watch a Rocky Balboa vs Apollo Creed 113 minute punch-up with 150m tall monsters which is fine by me - bring it on. Will watch this during the weekend on iTunes - also good to hear that sound and vision is great - george
Thanks @Tom Davies . I enjoyed that.
It does lead on from KotM but honestly, you'd probably be better served reading the Wikipedia plot summary.
I hate to admit it, but I was the same. I watched it last night and for the life of me, I just couldn't engage with it. On paper, it sounded fantastic, particularly, after Skull Island was such a good Kong film (IMHO). After sitting through it though, I've got to say I was bored and underwhelmed. Without spoiling anything, the fight scenes are pretty good, but the final act is just bobbins with the antagonist nothing less than cringeworthy. It's not a terrible film, but it's not a good one either. 5/10 from me.For me I just couldn’t wait for it to be over watching it last night. 4/10
Yeah, it's always the way. It's just how publishing reviews works.Shame we can't somehow merge this and the old thread
Some of the Millennium series kind of does and I think Godzilla Vs. Biollante is genuinely great - and the first two still hold their weight as horror but no, as action movies stuff like Ebirah and Megalon do not stand up under that scrutiny.I watched the proper original Godzilla films, enjoyed them, but they don't hold their weight as action films in this day and age.
Eeesh, these missed the mark for me. I don't know what it is but I found them very un-Godzilla like.watched the anime Godzilla films on netflix, really enjoyed them.
Many of these types of movies are like video games, but this was pretty much nothing more than a video game. Even the CGI is horrible - pretty much everything looks fake (for example, even a simple shot of boats traveling in the water has wakes that look like they were colored with crayons). And someone must've figured out how to make direct close-ups of faces, because that's ALL you see, over and over and over again. There's no story, no nothing. It stinks.
