He is a troll but he's just reporting what someone else said.

Tbh 70% or 7/10 is a pretty reasonable overall rating if all of the reactions are anything to go by.

If we're going off Gavin Feng, would you guys be okay with another 76%, 7-8/10 film?

I'd be cool with it since it seems like a Monsterverse standard. Plus it's no score to cry about.

Yeah, honestly if the score turns out to be 70%+ again i'd be totally fine with it.

I kinda agree, but you're thinking lower than the previous 2 films?

Ya. I think with such an emphasis on action and less on character some critics will see that as a detriment.

For me, I just hope the movie gets a better score then Captain Marvel (I hated it). So hopefully better than 78% on RT lol

Okay yeah I getcha, it's interesting how some people are praising the characters while others are saying they didn't have enough screen time, yet I think the general consensus is that these new characters are still better than the last 2 films, so I wonder what the critics are going to say.

I think the major detriment of this movie is their motivations. That’s the part that seems as of now to be unanimously disliked (for those who went into a bit more detail on why they loved/hated the film).

The "final look" trailer is getting a decent amount of views.

Also, critic reviews aren't the end-all-be-all. Look at Aquaman and now Aladdin. It will all be about the word of mouth. This is a monster movie, so the GA will expect monster action. We know it will deliver on that. There's a good chance it will be mixed from critics but the good word of mouth from the GA will make it the success we want it to be.

Plus, presales are looking very strong. It' hard not to get caught up in the negativity. I admit I allow myself to get worried at times as well. Just try and not overthink things, sit back and look at the big picture: good presale numbers and a movie that will deliver what's expected of it to the GA.

7.0/10 on Douban, 9.0/10 on Taopiaopiao.

The first score is the equivalent of RT, the second is the audience score

That Douban score is higher than G14 and KSI, so that’s good

Honestly for me it could be 40% as long as it made good box office and the series continued. I don't even really care about the RT score. Ghostbusters 2016 is at like 72% when it should be at 13%. So that score can wildly inaccurate

I think the studio would be satisfied with 70%, but would prefer the audience score get to around 93%.

If the reviews won't be a selling point, like they were for John Wick 3, you need tremendous WOM like Aquaman got.

Ya that too. At least TLJ had SOME redeeming aspects (not a ton though). GB16 had none.

Average critic score is far more accurate.

I prefer the MV to continue and things not go back to Toho so I prefer a good box office to keep it going.

I'm having an ExasperatedPikachu.jpg moment encountering KOTM TV spots on TV. I should be expecting them but I keep forgetting to because I don't watch TV all that much anymore.

Id look at Venom as an example... Cringe worthy dialog.. I remember the ''turd in the wind'' being everywhere.
Then I remember the poor reviews by critics and 29% but audience rating 81%.
Box office 855$ million Worldwide.

I am not saying Godzilla will be like Venom my whole point is audience are not critic's, another example is
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom
Critic Score 48%, Audience 49%
Box Office 1.3$ Billion worldwide

Right now we don't know how this film will do, but so far presales are good.. Word of Mouth is pretty positive. Audiences seem to have fun with it. I think we will be fine.
