Reminds me of this attitude I see from certain fans where they almost treat the older films as a curiosity best kept out of the public eye.
Kind of agree with this, which was my point. You and I, we see the 1964 suit. Joe Blow and Jane Wayne, casually shopping on a Tuesday morning sees a guy in a unattractive rubber suit with bad photoshop going GRRR ARRRR!! with his arms raised. This covers brings to mind every stereotype this genre of film has suffered for the last 40 years. Pick a photo from 1954; nearly every stock shot is somber, attractive yet conveys the character properly and doesn't look "fake" or like a cheap special effect. Or an actual poster, like the 1984 advance sheet, or hell, use the KOTM B poster for a nice promotion. Something that makes Godzilla look INTERESTING, not like a joke.
