Context, the OP posted this alongside,"How Far we've come"

Some really choice comments:
"he looks like a skreeonkin’ Chuck E. Cheese animatronic"
"He looks like Toho scooped up the road kill from behind the studio and made it into a suit."
"Note that the original King Kong from the 1920s looked a lot better than the Japanese version from GvKK."

All of those things are true though, that's some of the many reasons why we love the suit.

The puppet looks bad but the attitude in the comments was definitely along the lines of "finally Legendary is fixing Toho's properties and making it good this time around." Whole lot of "new CGI = better" in there.

Definitely a cherry picked image anyways. Is the suit vastly better looking? Nah, but you might as well use it when you're not using a picture of Godzilla's puppet.

Say what you want about G98, the baby Zillas were way more fu*cking b*dass than the lame prince from before... hell give Zilla some atomic breath and he's more faithful than the shiit Toho makes these days...

You are implying that Godzilla 98 is more faithful to the character than Shin Godzilla.

Wat.

And him dying at the end was just a clever easter egg referencing the original, there are many little things like this in the film but you have to be a pretty hardcore fan to see them

The conflict between Audrey and Tatapolous is just a callback to Serizawa and Emiko. Shin doesn't have any romantic love triangle and doesn't remain true to the core of the series.

Oh thank God. I didn't realize this was the cringe thread for a minute and got scared, LSD.
Drink 32oz of water a day, exercise daily for at least 30 minutes, take your meds as prescribed, eat healthy (count calories), reach out to your support network when you need them, practice basic hygiene, learn from your mistakes, forgive yourself for your failures, admit when you're wrong, be humble when you're right, be nice to animals, and try again.
