Your fears for Godzilla Vs Kong

Postby LegendZilla » Mon Jun 03, 2019 1:12 am

Hey guys, now that most of you have already seen Godzilla King of the Monsters, regardless of whether or not you were satisfied with the final product (I thankfully did enjoy it for the most part),so now it's time to move on with your concerns for the Monsterverse's next entry, that being Godzilla Vs Kong. In my honest opinion, the fact that Adam Wingard, who as we all know directed the now-infamous Netflix adaptation of Death Note, does not bode well combined with the overall reception KOTM has.

What aspects of the actual film itself could potentially ruin it? I imagine the characters making incredibly stupid decisions along with gaping plot holes.

It wasn't that bad though. Direction and cast were mostly fine. It's writing that sucked. Also, wasn't it moderately sucessful? I'm cautiously optimistic about Wingard. He's never done monster action before, maybe that's his hidden talent.

We're past that point.

I’m worried that Adam Wingard will be unable to hold the camera steady.

i'm sure the most lingering one on people's mind right now is that it's not gonna do well and the MV will be over if that happens

I'm worried that they'll drop the Showa style of plot and kaiju personification.

If it is very similar to KOTM, I’ll actually be fine with it; but I sort of think it’ll be way better, as both Godzilla and aKong have been properly established as well as the universe they exist in. Contrary to popular belief, I did in fact enjoy KOTM, the only issue is that it teetered on being a trashfire for me. As long as it’s about the same as KOTM things should be fine, though obviously I want it way better

I posted about this in another thread but i have a feeling that IF Godzilla was going to win in the script for GvK...they are going to do reshoots to make Kong win based on how badly KOTM performed in comparison to Skull island, since it shows audiences are apparently apathetic to Godzilla but seem to like Kong.

My only fear is that it will get 40% on rotten Tomatoes and audience reject it like they did KoTM. (I saw nothing wrong with KOTM, I loved every second )

I don't want monsterverse to end, I'm happy we are getting Godzilla vs Kong, but yeah, thank God we are still getting it and KOTM has no impact on that.

Film wise fear? If they make Kong win.

That it will suffer the same fate KOTM did and spell the end of the Monsteverse. But I suppose would at least be bittersweet if we got a movie just as mind blowingly awesome at the expense of future movies. (Bitter leaning cuz I wanted a solo Mothra movie)

Unlike KotM which proved to be actually good I'm actually relatively concerned about this movie given Adam Wingard's movies like Death Note and Blair Witch has me worried. Like seriously? Of all the potential directors Legendary could have chosen they pick this guy and couldn't had gotten a better director like Matt Reeves?

That, and a comedy relief character as cringe-inducing as Bradley Whitford's.

Don't give a poop if it bombs like KOTM, I just want a good movie out of it

I just don't want Mecha-Godzilla or Mecha King Ghidorah in it. Just give me a plain and simple Godzilla and Kong and other Kaiju as fodder for them. They could throw Gorosourus in this so easy. Would love to see him and Kong fight.

My fear is that we have too many Star Trek-style explain-away meetings that explain plot developments instead of letting the plot (and characters) develop organically. I hope that the strong cast is given ample material to work with, and we have something critics and fans can agree on.

The critics have chosen a side and it's the opposite of how the movie ends.
Just give me MechaG, Destroyah, Rodan and a whole bunch of new titans from kotm battling the living hell out of each other with the ultimate tag team G&K winning all said and done, I'll die happy.
