-I liked "Ratzilla." I don't know why, but I do.
Because, like I used to, you have bad taste.
-The monster battles, while short, were somewhat entertaining.
Watching paint dry or grass grow is far more entertaining.
-Seeing a bunch of Showa actors make brief comebacks.
Good for them.
-Redesigned monsters (though Hedorah did indeed look like ass).
Right, cause everyone loves four-legged Ghidorah and smushed-face armadillo Anguirus, right?
-That freaking spazzy Xilien controller.
Xilien Controller was a piece of poop with horrible acting. '65 Xilien controller kicks his ass.
-One of my favorite Mothra designs.
It's the very same suit from 2003 reused.
-Zilla getting owned. I don't care if it's "MAKING HIM CANON! OH NO3Z!!!1!1!" I still enjoyed watching him die. :twisted:
Well, if you don't care, I won't repeat it then. But people will ALL grow to regret that.
-Because of this movie, we now have 25 G films on official DVD as opposed to just 15.
That has nothing to do with the movie itself. That's just based on the 50th anniversary tag.
-It's probably action-packed enough to hook some of the little kids on Godzilla and grow the fanbase a little.
The last thing we need around here is MORE idiots
-I don't see why that's bad taste. The head is kinda skinny, but I like it overall. I'd say "It's an opinion" but that would restart a shitstorm neither of us want to repeat, I'm sure.
-Pure hyperbole. Seriously, you're just getting ridiculous. I can understand not liking them, but honestly man.
-Yes, it is.
-I wasn't aware of Ghidorah's third and fourth legs, and Angy didn't look great, but Hedorah was just terrible.
-Yes, true, but every time I see him I lol at the performance due to the cheese factor. '65 Controller is better though, I agree.
-I didn't see the white fuzzy poop, but I might just have not noticed it. Still one of my favorite designs.
-Yes.
-Well, maybe, but the shitstorm of publicity in Japan I can imagine happened almost certainly had some influence.
-I suppose you're right there. Still, they'd probably acquire more mature tastes and realize FW sucked, but whatever.
But in any case, this thread is about the positives, so what say we drop it. Again. Sound good?

Opinions are irrelevant, lol
-Pure hyperbole. Seriously, you're just getting ridiculous. I can understand not liking them, but honestly man.
Okay, grass grow was an exaggeration. But I would rather watch paint dry.
-I wasn't aware of Ghidorah's third and fourth legs, and Angy didn't look great, but Hedorah was just terrible.
Well yeah, but you acknowledged Hedorah, it would have been pointless to rag on about that. And yes, Ghidorah's got a second set of legs.
-Yes, true, but every time I see him I lol at the performance due to the cheese factor. '65 Controller is better though, I agree.
I don't think the performance is supposed to be cheesy.
-I didn't see the white fuzzy poop, but I might just have not noticed it. Still one of my favorite designs.
I loled at white fuzzy poop.
-Well, maybe, but the shitstorm of publicity in Japan I can imagine happened almost certainly had some influence.
Maybe, but I still feel the '50th Anniversay' tag was the important part, not the GFW part.
-I suppose you're right there. Still, they'd probably acquire more mature tastes and realize FW sucked, but whatever.
Hopefully.
But in any case, this thread is about the positives, so what say we drop it. Again. Sound good?
If you say so.
I don't think I saw the same movies as the rest of you.
I'll always miss Vega.

I like Varan, doesn't make G:U worth a penny.

And frankly, if you like Zilla, you're going to want to get the hell off this forum - for your own good.

It's called opinions JVM and people are allowed to have them and not backdown and leave.

Who gives a skreeonk about opinions? This is about facts and it's a fact that Zilla is one of the most hated Toho monsters, no matter how damn much someone likes him.

I might just do that maybe.

Anyway like I said earlier Don Frye a.k.a. Captain Gordan was the best human character in Final Wars almost Philippe Roche who was the best and most badass character in his movie.

I was saying it for his own skreeonking good so he doesn't get his ass chewed out for liking Zilla. My bad. I'll go back to being a douchebag 24/7 instead of trying to be nice every once in a while.

You are the only person I've ever seen here chew out someone for any opinion.

The good:
-Good intro. I think so many shots were too brief to see what they were though.
-Special effects aren't ass!
-The kaiju move around a lot more then they usually do. And it felt fast paced, too.
-DON FRYE
-I did like the alien controller. He actually had some personality.
-Scientist chick. She was easy on the eyes.

Just ignore the guy, Dynomy. I did, and I feel better knowing that the only way I have to mandatorily see any of his posts is if somebody quotes him. And reading what he said just makes me shake my head in shame. Seriously dude, not cool.

BOT, FW has some positves, but they are few and far between.

- Manda's execution and appearance
- Kamacuras' execution
- The Controller
- Douglas Gordan
- Zilla (If only because it's actually attacking Sydney with the intent on destroying it)

And that's all I can name right now. Haven't watched FW in a while.
will do NSZ. he might have been helping but there is no need for telling people to leave. there are several Zilla fans here and there not even gone yet so yeah im going to ignore that ass

- Big friggin' whoop. You don't rate a movie over how attractive a chick is.

- Douglas Gordan
- Zilla (If only because it's actually attacking Sydney with the intent on destroying it)
- Wow, five seconds of the movie impressed YOU!
- See above.
- Controller's lame.
- Gordon's lame.
- You hate Sydney?
No one on this forum has criticized my liking for Zilla and believe me people know I do.
Nobody may have criticized you directly, but look around, there's still plenty of Zilla bashing.

At least someone realizes I was trying to help. And frankly, 90% of the people who come to this forum disappear within a year anyway. I've been here longer than a fair chunk of people.

You joined a month before I did and yet I still have over a 1000 more posts then you do. :freak:

Though I do admit there is a lot of Zilla bashing around here.
