I don’t really see them as all that comparable, they are trying to accomplish entirely different things as movies - I just think Shin comes closer to accomplishing what it wants than G14, so I’d rate it higher. But I love them both.

G14 promised things that I simply do not think it delivered on. Shin on the other hand accomplished almost everything I hoped it would. That's what it boils down to with me. Luckily it seems KotM just wants to be a fun monster movie so hopefully it delivers on that.

That depends on some people. I love both Shin and G14, but if you ask which I think is the better film, I would slightly give the advantage to Shin thanks to the themes, social commentary, and human characters.

I have noticed a sort of profile on here; it's not 100% consistent, but I do find it interesting. Generally, it seems like if one has Return of Godzilla as the 80s pick, GMK and Shin are guaranteed to come along with it in their eras- and frequently the 70s and 90s choices tend to differ from the pack, too. It seems like a general affinity for message/political films?

Either way, for me, it's been noticeable, because it seems to be the statistically-largest single divergence from the standard set of answers, in that it seems to be a package deal. If you have one of those different from the norm, the differences seem to fall into a specific pattern.

I very much consider TFA to be half-assed. What a generic film which only fed on nostalgia, it brought nothing new to the table.


That's not true. C3PO had a red arm.
