Crashing back down Millenia's later. I have a feeling they purposefully kept the origins a mystery, like Carpenter and Ridley Scott did to keep the alien suspense in full effect.
I don't particularly care for his origins, because that would have worked in more issues. It's implied that because he's an alien, he has a different biology. That makes sense, anyway.
Essentially, I'm messing with the idea that the Titans can communicate in such a way in the first place. And apparently an alien can, too. What's next, Godzilla talks to humans? That's interspecies communication, too.

He called, they answered. That's communication on his part. Most communication goes both ways, regardless of response. Rodan submitted to him, and he didn't merely kill Rodan because he was capable of understanding and communicating. He even understands the Orca like any other Titan. It doesn't matter if Godzilla's bio-acoustics were spliced with humans, either. He can make the distinction and takes attention away from Godzilla to pursue it.

Worse yet, the movie didn't even seem aware it was stupid, just throwing in a sentence about how he communicated with all the Titans of the earth with his little roar on that volcano (as if we hadn't already seen as much) and then moving right along, as if there was nothing particularly unique about that.
It doesn't make sense. Suspension of disbelief is thrown out the window. Sure, I'll believe Ghidorah is an alien and whatnot, but when they communicate, between species, between aliens, from hundreds and thousands of miles apart, red flags go up. It's that, the sneaky teleporting titans at the final scene, and the kneeling. All of that.

The Toho Godzilla series never really used a one sized fit all approach, you had monsters like Godzilla and Rodan who had similar origins, but then you had creatures that were complete fantasy or had their own original origins and backstory. I do admit I’m not a big fan of how the Muto monsters, Behemoth and all the original Kaiju, plus Godzilla, Rodan Mothra etc...all essentially have the same origin story.
This pretty much sums up my opinion as well.
LSD Jellyfish wrote:Like JNavs said though, it is admitted that a big flaw was that Ghidorah really wasn’t a titan. He is an alien. He’s the first monster beyond the general Titan rules or whatever. When they released KG, they didn’t realize that there would be that level of reaction.
The problem is though, it's explained that they're responding to an alpha, rival to Godzilla. Regardless of whether he's called an alien, the movie seems to treat him like a simple Alpha Titan, for all intents and purposes. Meaning he follows the same rules. This is probably done to make sure that he's a rival for the alpha title, and unfortunately just a set up for the monster fights. It really could have worked being left at him being an ancient alien enemy of the Titans, like the cave paintings implied in K:SI. I'd forgive it if not for the other criticisms I mentioned above. I'm sure the novelization mentions the Titans as allies to Ghidorah or something before Godzilla defeats him and asserts his dominance. Maybe I'm wrong. The movie has only been out for a few days.
