I would understand something that changes the entire title completely but this....but although it is a pet peeve of yours.....also this is the "Kaiju" pet peeve thread not a fandom one...

But hey, like I said its just a pet peeve of yours just dont expect fans to be to your high standards....this is just a forum nothing more nothing less.


It doesn't upset me. As I said it just bugs me, even if they're only misordering the words. Also I don't think it's "high standards" to know the name of a movie (in the correct order) if you're participating in a fan forum about those very movies. But like you said, just my pet peeve.

GMK isn't technically the name of the movie, but everyone still knows what movie you're talking about. Same goes for "Godzilla vs King Kong." It's no big deal.


I don't really think it is the same. "GMK" exists because it's an acronym of an ungodly long title that most people wouldn't want to type out. Also, Toho has used "GMK" (in English) on their releases of the film. "Godzilla vs. King Kong" is different because someone either intentionally, absent-mindedly, or ignorantly put the characters' names in the wrong order.

And you're right, it's no big deal. I'm not trying to make it one. It's literally a pet peeve, which is... not a big deal. lol


Just wait for Godzilla vs Kong, people are gonna call it Godzilla vs King Kong! Oh the horror!

Guy acknowledges minor irritation, is mocked for fact that irritation is over minor issue...
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.

Heisei Rodan being only 70 meters tall. He should've been the same height as Godzilla. Rodan being that much smaller and weaker than Godzilla doesn't look right to me. Not a fan of his long beak and three horns either, it makes him look kind of generic. Rodan having a bird-like head and wings is what sets him apart from real pterosaurs.

It’s because I’m considered an “elitist.” My opinion doesn’t matter.

OP never specified it had to be something literally from a movie. "This thread is here for you to sound off about kaiju things that annoy you." OK, that's something related to kaiju movies that annoys me and I'm sounding off on it. I didn't know I broke some sort of unwritten rule or that I had to explain something so trivial in this detail. Sheesh.

:roll:

Wait, hold on, are we actually on page two of giving someone shiit for a "pet peeve" on a "pet peeve" thread? One he openly stated isn't a big deal? I'm...I'm so confused.

It's cool. I'm asking too much to expect Godzilla fans to actually know the names of the Godzilla movies they profess their love for on a Godzilla forum. But if you wanna criticize how Mothra appears in ten frames of one of those movies then it's no big deal.

Y'all need Buddha. Is it a little 'elitist' to gripe at people for getting titles slightly wrong? Maybe, I dunno. That's subjective. But you don't need to keep arguing about it and derailing the thread. And in any case, we're entering a bold new era where there will be two movies where Godzilla fights King Kong, so keeping your titles straight will actually matter if you want to avoid confusing people.

This thread is here for you to sound off about kaiju things that annoy you. Maybe you hate Mothra’s fast motion, or Toho Kong’s lazy eye.
Feel free to point out general tropes, but I encourage you to think of specific examples.


There read it, learn it, skreeonk it I dont give a damn. Obviously its about the things about Kaiju.....everyone before you stated things as such......lile I said.

Lighten up Francis, a little ribbing won't hurt you snowflake....... :roll:

Godzilla vs. Biollante is boring, overrated, mediocre special effects, with a score that's hilariously out of place.

Or just use the proper titles (King Kong vs. Godzilla, Godzilla vs. Kong) to differentiate them. Like how the 1964 movie where Godzilla and Mothra fight is Mothra vs. Godzilla while the 1992 flick is Godzilla vs. Mothra. I agree it mildly annoys me too. Maybe not so much if casual fans use it, but if someone were on a Star Wars forum and kept calling A New Hope The New Hope, people would get annoyed. Probably way more so than Terasawa is over Godzilla vs. King Kong.

One more time for the people in the back!

Godzilla vs SpaceGodzilla has one of the best scores in the franchise with how evil yet perfect SpaceG's theme is, it also shows family love between Godzilla, Rodan and Junior who is one of the cutest characters in the franchise and actually grows into his own Godzilla over the course of the Heisei films unlike certain olive looking pug face Minyas
