Yes. She has several different calls that I can remember, at least one of which sounded a lot like her more traditionally roar.

The best way I can describe Rodan, Ghidorah, and Mothra's roars are "Showa-like, but way deeper".

So does the fighting cut away to the human characters in the middle of the fight, or is the camera angle and cinematography just simply from a ground level perspective?

How was the cinematography of this movie and how is it compared to G14?

Dope, were there plenty of easter eggs planted that could potentially play out in future films?

Like I said, the intercutting between the human action and the monsters is more like what we're used to from the Japanese films. If what you're asking is "Is there another Godzilla vs. Muto in Hawaii again?", then no there isn't that.

The first fight between Godzilla and Ghidorah is VERY reminiscent of the first fight between Gamera and Legion in Gamera 2, if that helps clarify. There's a lot of monster action here, some of it is seen from the human perspective (comparable to Gamera vs. Legion in G2 or Gamera vs. Gyaos in G3, IMO) and some of it is from the monsters' perspective.

There's some similarities to G'14 and K:SI, in how when you see the monsters you SEE them and when we're focusing on the monsters you get good solid shots with clear action. No shaky cam or blurry messes with the action, the only time you see anything like that is a couple of points when following the humans when they're trapped in the middle of the fight.

Utimately the pacing is faster but still enjoyable and epic sometimes a little too fast but just a nitpick

Ghidorah roar is similar with cackles but that's about it Rodan's is pretty different kinda more similar to Angurius

Like I said, they sound similar but are WAY deeper in tone. Listen for them especially for those two when they each first roar, I think you'll understand what I mean then. Like, if the traditional roars were trumpets, these are tubas. Not quite sure how else to describe it.

Absolutely. I've already bought another ticket, I'll be seeing it again next Thursday. :)

Gotta support the box office so yeah I'll probably enjoy the pacing better second time

Yep. I didn't mind myself. :)

It's definitely fast paced, faster than either of the other two MonsterVerse movies, so if you liked the slower paces of G'14 and K:SI be prepared for that. The best comparison for the pacing is probably The Avengers or a movie like that.

Rodan sounds like Anguiras?

Good grief, what’s the point of the director saying they had their classic roars? Why lie?

Lmfao... It's gotta be like a parody account

He said all the kaiju have their classic roars. He related Rodans roar to Anguirus' due to being deeper in tone.

Another point where I'm going to disagree with Godzilla2000zero: Rodan sounds NOTHING like Anguirus. Rodan's roar in KOTM sounds like if you took Showa Rodan and gave him a super-deep voice. He only does the classic style warble a couple of times, the main one I remember being when he first emerges from the volcano.
