Jesus I'd been waiting 10 years for it & was just happy that Big G was back.
I stood up & cheered when he blasted the female M.U.T.O for the first time.
I'm a "Glass Half Full" kind of guy.
Likewise- and likewise for that scene. Just checking; in that case, I agree with your overall statement. For me, both 2014 and the anime trilogy represent positive developments in the franchise (and 2014 is either in my top 5, or #6 just below it). There hasn't been a movie since 2014 that I dislike. (Only a couple that I 'meh,' and neither of those is 2014!)
I thought you hated Shin?
No, I really don't. I think it is an entirely decent movie. Just not the amazing thing that everyone else thinks it is.
It's just hard to argue 'it's not that awesome' without hyperbolizing/emphasizing the negatives.
I actually do that a lot. My board game group thinks I hate 7 Wonders; I just don't want to play it every other week. But it's hard to argue a positive should be a neutral; arguing against a positive always sounds like you're saying it should be a negative of equal and opposite proportion. It's kind of like those toasters or washing machines where, if you twist the knob just a couple of ticks, it doesn't even turn on- you have to crank it way further than you actually want to get it to turn on, then dial it back to where you actually want it to be.
For me, Shin, Monster Planet (and Skull Island, if that counts), were all decent, just not stellar. Whereas 2014 and City on the Edge of Battle were stellar.
...Which is definitely a statement that belongs on the 'Unpopular Godzilla Opinions' thread, I know.
