This whole "insistence" in calling KKVG "Godzilla vs. King Kong" seems like it's stemmed directly from butthurt over Kong winning and is an attempt to have Godzilla "outrank" him ala Bugs & Daffy vs. Daffy & Bugs.

Or it could just be people used to most of the other films being "Godzilla vs ......" and forgetting what the actual title is.

I always thought Godzilla started that whole "If his name goes first he automatically wins"

I posted a pet peeve and you haven't. Whether you think that my contribution to this thread is up to OP's original intention is irrelevant. Your posts in this thread are singularly calling me out because you disagree with me on this.

I don't want to play along. I was only trying to contribute something to the discussion.

And once again, it's literally a pet peeve. You guys are really making a mountain out of a molehill about this! OK, you disagree, fine. I don't give a poop if you do or don't. If you want to continue mocking me then go right ahead but I'm done here. I've said what I wanted to say, both initially and then twice more when my opinion was derided. Frankly I don't feel like my contribution to this discussion is welcome so I'm sorry I chimed in. :roll:

All this talk about getting a movie's name wrong, and nobody mentions how often you all misspell Rebith of Mortha or all the Gameta titles...

1). The Lack of footstep/stomping sounds...they seem to "come & go" in most kaiju films.

2). The Lack of Anguirus.

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.

Not trying to disagree with your opinion, or even argue with it, but apparently there’s a legitimate reason why they made Rodan smaller. Apparently, they didn’t want every single monster in the Heisei series to either be Godzilla’s height, or significantly larger then him. It was to add some variety to the monster sizes.

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.

Which makes sense, Like in the Monsterverse a giant ancient volcanic Pterosaur would not be the same size as a gigantic prehistoric amphibious Komodo Bear and a giant ancient Moth would be smaller than both due to being an insect

I absolutely LOATHE it whenever Godzilla runs. It's so STUPID and instantly makes any film a B movie. It's HORRIBLE and almost adds some fun to my serious movies, which is NOT ACCEPTABLE.

Literally any deviation from Godzilla as presented in Gojira is the rape of a cinematic masterpiece. My childhood and my dead father's childhood are ruined!

So...Godzilla should never run...ever?

Why not?

Most living creatures have that ability.
