I gave you a one word answer, and this translates to being "uppity"?1. It's just depressing in tone. It's like a funeral. The plot moves very slow and nothing really happens except for a few scenes of Titanosaurs doing stuff. There are some good scenes between the human cast but most of theirs are dull up until Godzilla shows up then they start to get better. This movie just ignores the fact its part of the Godzilla series and shoe horns him in cause he has to be in it. This happens with other movies like megalon so it may just be a nitpicky thing to say about it.
2. The plot moves very slow and nothing really happens except for a few scenes of Titanosaurs doing stuff. There are some good scenes between the human cast but most of theirs are dull up until Godzilla shows up then they start to get better. Tokyo's destruction is just stuff getting blown up and then blown away. Blowing up a whole city block isn't that impressive. Gigan's rampage through tokyo was much better (and I mean Gigan in the film. Not all the ghidorah stock footage)
..What's up with all copying and pasting, and repeating of yourself?
And did you just seriously just say that GIGAN's stock-footage ridden rampage was *better* than MG and Titano's assault on Tokyo? Uh, okay, sure.5. nice answer. Give me a reason why they are some of the best in the series.
Maybe because they're emotionally engaging? Unless you're heartless or 'allergic' to their acting style, you sympathize with all of the main characters; Katsura, Dr. Mafune, and Ichinose as the story progresses. A lot of the going-on's are kind of depressing (as is the ending), and seeing as that aspect really rubs you the wrong way, I probably shouldn't be too surprised that this all goes over your head.
Not every Godzilla film has to have a happy ending, nor do they all need to have Godzilla in it for 45 minutes.
What do you want me to say? I gave you the points on why I dont like it. I copy and pasted cause it was easier then retyping the same thing again.
I guess I'm heartless then. Katsura is just mechagodziila's glorified xbox controller. Mafune is just being an immature baby about being kicked out of the science world. The other guy just follows around katsura like a lost puppy.
>rubs me the wrong way
>implying I cant understand something cause i dont like it goes over my head
No I get it depressing movies can be good but not when they are just depressing to be depressing. Gojira is a good example of that. The ending isn't all that depressing they win and the guy loses the girl probably happier ending then gojira.
The tokyo destruction scene takes no real effort to do. It's all blowing stuff up. Plenty of other kaiju movies do the same thing better.Remember the knee high city scene? Gigan may use stock footage but its not sloppy enough to make that mistake.
