Godzilla King of the Monsters SPOILER Review
Hello, and, welcome, to my spoiler review, for, Godzilla. King, of monsters, and, I gotta say I really, feel, for, you Godzilla, fans who are enjoying the movie I'm not as I said in my non-spoiler. Review a kaiju fan so, I don't take the hate that personally. But, Wow some, people are really out with pitchforks, over this movie like it's an overwhelming, wave, of negativity, in some, regards, I feel like Godzilla, after. That oxygen, bomb went off from like I need some positivity, but. My job is to give the positivity, to you so I'm gonna radiate, it out replenish, you we're, gonna talk about this, movie because you know I see a lot of people talking about what they would like this, movie to be what they would prefer it to be and you know what yeah it's, not the Dark Knight but they tried what that with, 2014. Cigars, illa and it did not work out it was Gareth Edwards fault, he's the guy who later got kicked off rogue one. For, Tony. Gilroy had to come in there and fix that up Tony Gilroy, you know unlikable Tony Gilroy is he, did a wonderful job born, then he fixed rogue, one and he still doesn't get any work okay they're like that's, how much people don't want to be around Tony Gilroy even, though he'll break a great movie for you okay, and that's also how desperate, Star Wars was anyway, we're talking Godzilla, so yeah it's not a Dark Knight but, it's really a 2012. That. Was, also a fun ride of a movie which people also like, to hate on I mean you think the Godzilla arty score is low whoo it's even lower for 2012. But, you know what's higher for 2012, in the box office made even more than, 2014's. Godzilla, worldwide, so, I think it's an understandable. Creative choice with this franchise, you. Know for Warner Brothers to take it in the disaster movie, direction, from, which Roland Emmerich has him you, know built a whole career and. Also I have to say East versus, West translation. Entertainment, wise has always been tricky look at the uphill battle that anime has had good, luck ty ku with TD with Akira, that's. Interesting, actually because Akira, has a lot you know Japanese, storytelling. You've. Had a hard time at the Oscars too with their movies. But they are there's such strong. Messages. That they imbued, their blockbusters. To a degree that we're, not used to here in the West and I think that's one of the things that's kept the Godzilla audience so small for the original movies here and. I think to some degree jettisoning. In it jettisoning, it for the this movie I think, works I mean we can get back to the you know to those strong, messages, in the Godzilla movies but I don't think you can start with them we got to slowly gradually work, our way there I would love to see that injected. Into, some moisture and storytelling, as, long as it works at the, box-office right, because, it's. It's a tricky thing to do it's it's it's really hard that's why and I think that's interesting that the two biggest movie-going, audiences, are from. Two such very different cultures, and, it's why it's so hard to have something that's a huge hit in both, regions. Except. Marvel movies China sure loves those Marvel movies although of course Godzilla, hails from Japan. Uh and. Japan. Japan. Has even Japan's, box office is nowhere near the size of China's which is I think also maybe. Kept Hollywood, from reaching out to them like the way they're reaching out to China right now listen. This spoiler review took an interesting turn right, we're talking about the business of worldwide. Cinema. But. You know Japan did I think contributed, ton of money to frozen to frozen so. There. Is some crossover, ground. Anyway. I, think. That Godzilla. King of monsters does, still manage to get some interesting ideas into, the mix they piqued my interest and, that's what we're gonna talk about first in fact I think there's enough world-building hair not just for a ride as I said in my non-spoiler, review but.
If I were coming up with shows for the upcoming Warner media streaming service, I would genuinely consider, some kind of world-building show, for, you, know a post good to look king of monsters world, because I think it's very interesting what's happening here all, right so the first interesting. Thing I want to talk about is that we refer Mia was not only revealed to be evil which we kind of got from the trailers, but. What really surprised, me is that she talked her daughter Millie Bobby Brown into being evil too like wow that, made me like sit, up after, the you know at the end of the first act when that was revealed when her Kyle Chandler was like come on honey come with me and she was like no I've joined the dark side dad, so she's like I also, like to juice kind of like dad you're not supposed to be here we're gonna kill everybody I mean it was it was really a shocker usually they don't make kids and teenagers evil, right there always pawns or unwitting pawns of their parents right or they don't know any better but, Millie Bobby Brown full-on, made that decision her brother you know kind of talked her into it a little bit but she was like yeah okay yeah let's do it I mean I thought that was amazing. I mean they kind of did a good they. Did a good thing where they like kind of did a misdirect, where she said I'm a little worried about mom I want to talk to you about it but it was more like mom. Has an interesting idea I'm not sure if I want to go along with her or not you know it was almost like just like she wanted use her dad as a sounding, board I guess I like that really Bobby Brown's character had some agency, not. Just when she decided to rebel against, her mother and steal the Orca device nod. To Jurassic Park when she was going through the, ventilator. You know the ventilation. Tubes and also die hard right. But. Yeah I mean she had agency, at the beginning when she decided to be evil I thought that was great I mean, I can, it really made me feel like this movie was gonna be something special that's like that was a twist that I was like okay this isn't just a by-the-numbers stay open to that point I thought, the good Zillah movie was like yeah it's good enough I'm having a good time but I thought it was genuinely, got interesting, with that twist and continued, to do so from there I liked. Having a family on the wrong side like it just interested me just when they were walking in, the tunnels at the at, the bunker and. Millie Bobby Brown was like maybe maybe, my, dead brother wouldn't have it into this and you're like you think but. It was like the. Family on the wrong side so often, you see families, and blockbusters, and they're on the side of the rebellion, and stuff like that right or if they do join the dark side it's just pump someone goes by themself, right, you don't see couples or families go, to the dark side as a group and so I like that discussion, it was like a realistic, groove from Despicable Me situation. And, I know there was very strong acting, from both veera for Mia and Millie Bobby Brown they played I thought two very competent, characters, which is unusual, with, female characters, a lot of the time particularly in the science, area and. Usually when you have female scientists, they're just like very good at their job but, again they don't have the agency.
That I felt both characters, had making. Their own decisions. I like, the stuff with the Orca I both genuinely, felt they knew how to use that thing even though I never understood, how it actually worked, and I liked Vanilli Braun gave the finger to Charles dance in, the elevator and when you realize that she was working with him it makes, this seem even more interesting, because she's like I'm working with you but I still don't really like you I know that's why she felt comfortable doing that by the way cuz she knew they were all on the same side that was great stuff I really. Liked it a lot I mean I'm really Bobby Brown of course has been venturing a little bit an Anne Hathaway territory. Lately and her you know how she presents herself but. I thought she did a really nice job here, even her argument with viewer for me at the beginning in the kitchen I thought. That she had some really nice character, moments, they're very realistic, I liked a lot and. Also speaking of female characters, they're so often portrayed as nurturers, in movies so, I love that they're both evil and they were totally okay with killing all these people and like their co-workers, like like night when that guy was killed when the wall exploded behind him who fear for me had been talking to all, day you know like when she was like no I'm gonna go out there and take care of it and when she insisted, on going out there to use the Orca device she knew she was gonna go to harm's way I wasn't but you know the Millie bug around right after her was that all an act I mean, I just it was so evil I thought it was fabulous that. I. Have to say beer for Mia also, just to show what a good actress she is she doesn't usually get enough credit for anything what she brings to the table it's. Unusual, to see a strong female, character, actor and that's exactly what V refer Mia is but. I loved, that. She. First of all was able to make her, model shimano logged a lot I love that she was able to make her she. Was able to make the justification. For her actions make sense at least to me I've, seen a couple of people criticize it but I think she I think she felt like if she didn't sacrifice these, other people along. With her son then her son's death, meant nothing but if he was just the first wave of a necessary, sacrifice, well. Then it wasn't so horrible you know it suddenly, it wasn't such a horrible, thing that happened so, that worked for me I got that I, was. Owned out during so my friend monologuing, to be fair but I got the gist of it and then, I genuinely felt, dad for her at the end when she decided to sacrifice yourself to save her family I mean that's amazing especially since she'd been so evil up into that point but, I still like teared up when she died, I think because Avira for me I made it clear that she wasn't a horrible person, she, just lost her way and that's a very sophisticated approach. To a, villain that not you know the villains not like you know mustache, twirling but. Instead is you. Know an. Intelligent. Troubled, person, who had something horrible happened, to them and they, just got lost in the darkness of that I got all that from her performance, so I was happy with it the, next environmentalism. Which of course was a huge, factor, you know factor in her justification. I saw. My, non-spoiler. Review someone, when someone one, of you who's a Godzilla, fan wrote in the comments, that you, know for this to be faithful to the original movies it has to have a strong environmentalism. Aspect. To it so you'll be very pleased I feel that the movie does and. I didn't quite get it at first I was like how is this gonna help the earth but, that when the news started to show that the destroyed, cities, and I was like it'll get destroyed some like real cities I like that I like that the movie went there right you so often you're like it's like this movie never happened, come on take it stand and they did they, stood right on top of the city and, stomped around a lot until they were just ruins. But, then they showed these gorgeous, prehistoric, giant, size jungles, like growing, up and there and there's in their place, I started. To see what mirror for me I was talking about and I thought it was interesting that the radiation, coming off of the kaiju wasn't. The bad kind although, tell that to Ken Watanabe we'll, get to him in a moment but. That actually was like healing the earth and. Like when they walked like plants sprung up in there in their steps I thought, the whole thing was like really cool and I would be interested to see you, know that's my next point what, does a kaiju world, look like what, is it like to live in these plant cities right when you take out the, infrastructure, of society, because it's just been so disrupted, by what's happened here I mean you go back in many ways to the era of cavemen, right I mean that's crazy to, me I mean so I have, well I guess I'll talk about that first I wanted to do was something about I'll touch on that and say at the end but, it made me think that you know in today's world as we get more and more technology.
More Knowledge, and we're more feeling, that we're in control of our own destiny, and we understand, why things are happening right to. Be thrown back into a time where. You don't understand, why things happen, and you have no control over it and you just have to go, with the flow it's like everyone. Becoming suddenly religious. Again with these as the new gods and that was like a really, interesting thing to me that's what I think like the streaming show could focus on so as I said I was getting all this from the movie so I thought, it was doing that it was like it was planting, the seeds let's say. But. Then I have to I thought it was funny with the kaiju for each city they were like oh this kaiju is in this city and this condusive that city it made me start to think that it would be like sports teams for the city you're like ah and you don't necessarily get a kaiju that you like like we have the woolly mammoth kaiju, it's no Rodan but that's the city I was born in and I'm gonna be a woolly, mammoth kaiju, fan and that's it so I just thought I thought that was fun kind of creating teams and, you know which team you're on and stuff like that, because. You know they seem to I mean I guess that's where. Monarch. Was keeping them at certain cities but that's where they found them they were just containing, them where they were found, so I guess it's like a little territorial, I thought that was I thought that was cool all, right the next Kendall Watanabe. Now, I'm watching Chernobyl. On HBO, so I say no way he, could take off his suit and gloves and just walk around like that with all that radiation and, just feel a little woozy I don't care what Bradley, Whitford pumped, into his oxygen, tank right he took it off at that point anyway, but. I did feel very bad, for him I had no idea he was so close to selling Hawkins character, clearly, he was like I don't want to be around anymore she's not around anymore and she just got legit stepped on Wow um, but.
Ken Watanabe sold, it I felt his pain and I was like go be, with Sally Hawkins as. You couldn't be in these movies because they had so little time together I felt but. I also thought it was hilarious when Godzilla was so woozy and was like looking at and he's like who's there Godzilla's, like who's there and he's like please this little ant guy what's he doing in my apartment and then Ken, Watanabe just, blew up all his stuff like, he just totally obliterated. Godzilla's, home and I'm Godzilla's probably like he's. Like it's for your own good don't worry that Godzilla I guess was like I feel, great. Oh well uh I. Do, wonder, what new home know about humanity. You will build for him particularly, since humanity of course has changed so much since his first home was built and maybe, Godzilla, has some demands like right but suddenly what's in his rider he's like only only red M&Ms, okay. Then. Of course there's an end credits sequence right, Charles. Dance he's. A little overused at this point I always just see his character, Lanice Lannister. From Game of Thrones and he's made a lot of bad movies so I sometimes think that he kind of has like a bad movie stink about him and he might be responsible, for kind of like triggering, some people just to Pavlovian. Have a pavlova in response, that they're watching a bad movie because Charles dances on the screen but. I didn't think he had one good line I like the one he was talking to Veera for me and he's like you can't go back now especially after you just admitted to everyone your evil plan I know that was hilarious it, was very good, you know he was really you know he's being really a hundred, with her I appreciated, it and, then of course he. Found, someone. Sold him one of Ghidorah is heads I guess. They'll jump start it with maybe some electricity and Ghidorah will regenerate that's what I'm guessing I've. Seen a couple people say they would have preferred to have a King Kong tease at the end because of course that's the next movie and, they did have a bunch of Skull Island references, throughout the film and I think that probably would have been a little bit stronger I thought as far as end credits scenes go this, was a bit weak and. Also of course key doors I don't know I've never wouldn't, get maybe if you're a big Godzilla, fan but Wendy Dora died, I want, you know or was eaten I wasn't like I hope he comes back. He. Was almost a little overpowered. But let's talk about the kaiju alright, so I want to start with Godzilla, I thought. It was really funny that in many shots even with all these VFX, he still looked like a guy in a suit I mean in some ways he is he's a guy in a motion capture suit but, I just thought that was really funny and then when he fell from the sky when. Ghidorah dropped him from above the clouds it, looked like someone dropped an action, figure because Godzilla's just such a funny shape and so stiff and just like has very little movement ability, so was hilarious to me and speaking.
Of That he doesn't really have great fighting moves I think we all can realise that but he's a long-range, fighter, you. Know I have a little bit of an introduction to video games through covering injustice, too and I saw some commentary, about oh it's important if you could be a long-range, fighter so you don't have to get in there you know if, you stay away from your opponent this less a chance they can get you although of course someone like your door has lightning breath away, a lot of them are long distance fighters, Mothra. Not so much but, of course Rodin, has fire as well so anyway. Godzilla. Also had, this not only did he have his atomic breath but, now he found, out that he could have like. A nuclear, explosion, I don't, know how I felt about that it was a little like how they recently tried to give Superman the ability himself to go supernova and, I, don't really feel like it fits with this power set personally. I have. Also seen some debate as to whether or not Godzilla is attractive, enough you Godzilla, hardcore, fans are crazy. It's a giant lizard he looks like a giant lizard I think it's fine I remember what the 2014. Some people were complaining that Godzilla had too much junk in the trunk and I'm like are you kidding me you, know are you as good are using Godzilla, like you're a swipe left or right with him I mean that's not what this is like not a romantic comedy. Some. People also I felt like seeing him swim underwater I don't think we got enough of that for me to really appreciate, it I have. To say with Godzilla I thought a lot of times it looks like he was thinking I appreciated, that like when you saw his eye I was like oh I think he I think there's like some thought in there so, much so and I would like to see more interaction, with the humans I got a somewhat personal level and maybe even apology, to Kyle Chandler cuz he did step on his kid Kyle, Chandler sold those moments to me where he was like am I really gonna just make peace with this thing that killed my kid and, I thought can't want a knob you had a nice line about that about you can only heal in your wounds if like you defeat your personal, demons or whatever and I'm like a lot of personal demon that, thing right there oh you know I know something, that's the thing that killed my son I'm looking, at it and yeah, I'm probably gonna hold a grudge forever. Although, gods of course probably doesn't even know that he did it but maybe you could be a little more careful what it's walking around. Speaking. Of taking, things out with. Rodin when he reluctantly, bad to Godzilla at the end of the movie and Godzilla was like okay yes get in line I was like whoa Godzilla, that. Thing just killed your girlfriend right, your lady friend the very least I thought Godzilla got over that a little too easy Godzilla's, like I never said girlfriend. That. Was a O'Shea, Jackson jr., spreading that around I never to commitments to Mothra but. Yeah so I was I don't know I would have thought maybe you, know but, I just thought that was forgive, it a little bit too easy what. I love grodan is I said in my non-spoiler, review best. Kaiju. Sequence, in the film love what happened in Mexico I thought it was like a perfect disaster. Monster. Situation. On every level but, I laughed out loud when that pilot, ejected from the plane right into row Dan's mouth that was hilarious I, loved it and the barrel roll from the trailer still, looks amazing even when you see in the movie. That. Is for Ghidorah as I said kind, of overpowered. But you know it's fine I I. Thought that what a head was cut off I would have liked to heads to have grown back in its place like the Hydra because you know of course they kept saying oh the, door has been seen throughout my history and mythology you, thought it was just imaginary.
So It's like oh let's see where the Hydra comes from I mean this long as this thing's growing back heads might, as well go back to grow back to but, I guess with Ghidorah the brand is 3 heads I would, have liked the heads to have distinct personalities by, the way I liked when they would snap at each other and then you could have the humans be like which head should we go for go for the leader head right that would be cool I thought, when I went to Fenway Park it was the smartest, of the Titans I liked that it was looking for the source of the sound it was like who's competing, with my siren call I like, that and spinning. Of junk in the trunk I have no idea how Ghidorah ever got off the ground that thing was huge I don't care what its wingspan is it was just, ginormous. I was like no way no. Way, those wings are declaration, and speaking, of speaking of decorative wings of course now we have to talk about Mothra. Love Mothra, I heard the lady singing that's, apparently, a big, part of Mothra throughout the, characters history sometimes. You can actually see them but here you could just hear them and, I thought it was beautiful they have not achieved. It. Radiated, right it's almost like pixie dust that was coming off of it I thought. It was magical, loved it and then even when you saw it when it when Mothra, emerged from her cocoon and had like a butterfly. Kind of body even. Though it was a furry bug body I thought, it was cute cute, and beautiful and those, wings were gorgeous, they came across as very delicate, when she was fighting with Rodin I was like oh god I'd careful the wings almost hurt they're not the beautiful, he's not the face not the wings um. And I like that she died in battle you know she was hardcore I like that she wasn't just decoration. I like that she was decoration, but. She could also be deadly and that was great, of, course I think she'll probably come back and I was wondering rebirth I like the line at the beginning when they were like this thing wants to be born and I was like that's a cool line but. I looked it up and Mothra, is apparently known for having offspring which she usually, hatches. Or puts puts, out there right before she maybe knows she's gonna die so maybe she deposited. Some baby Mothra, before she showed up to the final boss fight here and then also the character seems to be known throughout the franchise's, history for, twins and so I like the Zhang Zi, situation. Because she of course plays twins, in the movie which I thought could have they couldn't done more with that I mean look well I'll be honest I agree, they can't go deeper with the mythology, here but I think it has to be done gradually and, this is the best intro, to the franchise, yet in terms of a global ie. Western, audience. Because you know it already has a really, strong following. In the East but if it wants to be that global brand, that you know many people feel it deserves to be and I'm starting to think that - well, then I think this is a really necessary, step so, that's my spoiler, review of Godzilla, king of monsters I can't wait to hear your own thoughts down below go to town it's the spoiler, review and.
Of Course as always you can check out some more videos right. Now.
