It's just that PRU is my absolute least favorite film ever made, like out of every movie I've seen nothing has ever personally insulted my intelligence and expectations as an audience member like PRU. It's almost disturbing how absolutely wrong they got with everything.
"Mt. Fuji was always the target" and them trying to defend that ass-pull will never not make me wanna smash my head against a wall.
PRU actually skreeonking hurt me with how stupid it was. Did they just not remember that the first kaiju literally went in the opposite direction of Japan? Or that like 90% of kaiju didn't attack Japan at all.
That's the wonderful world of a movie born and molded out of executive meddling and frankenstein drafts for you. Universal didn't want a faithful followup to PR, they wanted their own movie, and that's exactly what they got.
As for DeKnight, you have to remember that Hollywood is a voracious hellhole to keep your job as director, especially with the internet and how easy it is for fans AND the higher ups of distributors and producers to know each and every thing a director says. DeKnight can't just come out and say "Yeah, everything was screwed up by Universal", or otherwise he's never seeing another directing job there again, because not just Universal, but ANY big distributor or producer wants nothing to do with someone willing to squeal about behind the scenes turmoil or meddling. They want obedient yesmen who do as they're told, won't talk back, and will take all the blame when the movie they meddled in goes up in flames. Most directors have no choice BUT to act out that yes man until their directing days are over, or they just don't care anymore, so it doesn't surprise me to see DeKnight defend one of the movie's dumb decisions. He defends it, all the fans hate and rage at him. He doesn't, he's never seeing another job as director ever again, and good luck finding a job with so many people desperately seeking work all over the place, even back then.
You dare try to challenge me? Then we shall see how you fare against a true Archangel!
