I think you missed the joke I was making.

"World of Godzilla" isn't a new film series. It's a global marketing initiative by Toho to expand the brand into more territories around the world.


Oh sorry,sarcasm doesn't catch on quite as fast when i'm on the web.

If Cloverfield does find it's way into the MV,and it's utter crap induced story bleeds into it and the Godzilla and Kong films,i honestly might be done with the MonsterVerse and put full focus on the World of Godzilla.


You'll stop paying attention to a movie franchise and put all your focus on a worldwide marketing project? Doesn't seem like a 1:1 transition.


I'm still betting that Toho's gonna make another movie franchise anyway,they have to be crazy if they don't.

Outside of Paradox that is.


Disagree. 10 BOREFIELD Lane honestly drove me out of the series and Paradox was the nail in the coffin.


To each his own but I don't see how Lane bored you unless you were expecting a direct sequel.
The one thing I want to see in life,TOHO buy Gamera.

That slow claustrophobic burn followed by the brutal death of a major character (there's only 3 (almost 4) characters in the entire film surprisingly) was iconic in my book, it felt so unique. Especially since I had no idea if they'd go the direct sequel route or not, (would've preferred a direct sequel but),

I think, and this is just my opinion, that the movie would've been better as its own thing - the way it was before Abrams tacked on the Cloverfield name and added some lame aliens and a molotov cocktail. It's such a tonal whiplash my neck almost broke.
