Not sarcastic in the slightest. I got banned here when I was a kid for telling a weeaboo pedophile to skreeonk off and stop being a weeaboo pedophile. The whole place is a joke and most of its users are insufferable. If it’s not pages of egotistical flamewars over action figures, it’s obnoxious misanthropes yelling about how awful every piece of Godzilla media save for X fav film/comic is. I’m only still here because I’m friends with a handful of active users and like to sift around for tidbits of info on Godzilla related stuff I might not find somewhere else.
I didn’t mean about the site in general, I actually agree with you about some of the stuff you said. I’ve been critical of KOTM but I still love the damn film, and the majority of films.
I meant I couldn’t tell if you were being serious about the part about Godzilla movies not supposed to be poignant tales. I think there’s many films that play to this in spades.
Oh. I misunderstood a bit.
My point was that Godzilla films, by and large, are not built to hinge on human drama in a way most might find critically appealing within the critical lense of modern standards. A handful of films within the series have successfully run that gambit, yes, but when the series itself is made up of dozens of dozens movies, several comic series and anthologies, and multiple novels which really, really don’t, it just feels a little silly to hold every new release to that standard before any other.
And to be honest? From what I’ve read of the movie’s reception on these forums?
Many people are doing that anyway.
And yes, I know, people are allowed to receive and react to a film any which way they please, but I can’t help but find it a little absurd to judge a Godzilla brawl-movie, done in the style of an updated Kill All Monsters, as if it’s an intellectual indie film designed to stir the spirit with the deep, resounding implications it carries within its commentary on the human soul and our journey as a species and as individuals through the traumatic and moving emotional web of life.
I mean. By all means. Critique the film like that if you want.
And. Yeah. The human element of the film was flawed, and you’re absolutely entitled to making note of that if you like.
But it’s my very subjective opinion that if you digest a Godzilla film from that angle and then sneer on an internet forum about it, you’re probably even more of a heinous dipshit than most of the people on this site. And you’re definitely a major funkill.
I mean I did say I envied the people who loved it and don't want to hurt anyone's enjoyment of it but ok.
