I don’t see how ghosting you once is a big offense. And clearly they’re trying to make it up to you by asking you to see KOTM with you; they were extending the olive branch. If they ghosted you again, that’s fine you’d be right, but your reaction and what you said is riduclous.

It’s worse now because the Olive branch was extended by the supposed offender but the persecution complex continues.

1. Not the first time they've done this.

2. As stated before they are not "making up for it". They didn't think it was a big deal all the other times.

3. They wouldn't have liked it anyways.

So what’s the big hateful masterful plan that’s made to destroy you and publically degrade you here that I’m not getting?

I had a friend of mine cancel on me to visit my area and stay with me this week. I cancelled some plans for that friend, but I’m not taking it out on them, as the other people are understanding. Meanwhile another friend of mine I was supposed to see today for drinks got wrapped up in something and will come over for coffee tomorrow
afternoon. In these cases I understand and just don’t take it personally. Go with the flow more and stop having this bizzare compkex.

Of course they do :lol:

Anyway, cringing because I found the Godzilla Neo TV Tropes page. Minus the usual obvious "realizations" and overemphasizing minor details, the entire wiki somehow misses the fact that the thing on MechaniKong explicitly says he's the delusions of a mad man, and treats it as a real thing.

To be fair that thread seems mostly chill. I think someone just wanted to try to stir up the pot.

Most likely, I’m right-wing as hell and I very much enjoyed KoTM

On the other hand, the New York Post did call the film “needlessly political” for it’s ecological themes (I myself thought the film wasn’t very political at all, and I mean even beyond it not stooping to the sort of dumb virtue signaling seen in Fallen Kingdom; most seem to agree that the climate change themes are honestly very minor, to the relief of some and the disappointment of others)


Meanwhile funnily enough Alex Jones loves the hell out of KoTM and devoted an entire video to talking about it

Now this review is cringe.

Calling it a very "Christian" movie.
"The newest Godzilla movie uses a plot that is geared towards telling the truth about the globalist agenda. "
"For a cheesey Godzilla movie it's the best Godzilla movie I've ever saw"

Oh believe me I know
I just thought it was some funny stuff that he devoted an entire video talking about how KoTM was secretly the most right-wing movie ever made

The movie review that I read was also not kind to the film. I got the feeling the critic doesn't like Godzilla or went in convinced it was just going to be a big, dumb, loud movie. That's the reason I never fully trust film reviews.
Kaiju are just like people- giant, radioactive people.

Megalon went into a bar and saw Gigan. Megalon said, " Again? I thought you gave this up."
" What can I say," Gigan asked. " I'm hooked."

There's not much I really cringe at with Godzilla fandom.

Kids talking about their love of Heisei monsters and Bagan? Sure, go ham. People talking out their asses about thematic elements that clearly aren't present in certain films? Sure, why not.

Shipping giant animals? Sorry, that's a line crossed. Pathetic. Wretched. >insert unkind adjective here<. I instantly think less of people who do this. It's disgusting.

...why? It's a little out there, but seems pretty harmless. Some of the kaiju are definitely smart enough to be able to make it semi-believable, too.

Whereas clearly you're all about shipping a giant animal with a giant hero from Nebula M78.

HYPOCRITE!
Tokyo, a smoldering memorial to the unknown, an unknown which at this very moment still prevails and could at any time lash out with its terrible destruction anywhere else in the world.

You and me both. Seems this element has really come out in recent weeks too. Ultimate cringe that a fan actually asked Dougherty about it. Christ
