Why was Dougherty fascinated with mythological beings from the west in particular?

Because.... he was making a westernized film?

Ah, is that why the film sports such a pro-nuke message?

Well yes, that's exactly why, they're giving their own perspective of the incident.

Misread the sarcasm earlier, was half-asleep. :oops:

It is weird there aren't any Eastern mythological names for "Titans" now that Goji_and_Watch mentions it.

What do you mean exactly? Are you asking why there's no Eastern inspired monsters in GKOTM?

I mean depending on how you define “Eastern” there’s a number that could qualify
Orochi’s the one that I think would be universally considered as Eastern

Yeah that's why I was asking what she meant because Titanus Orochi is in Mt. Fuji.

I wasn't sure if she meant why are there no Eastern Titans or if she was asking if there was an Eastern term for "Titan".

Yeah, but it's one of the ones that doesn't actually show up in the film other than a name

Honestly, I agree that the westernized name for the Kaiju from KOTM feel jarring.

Like, Behemoth has a cool design and stuff, but it has such a generic name that it doesn't stand out. There are at least a million other Behemoths in other franchises and media I like

That's something I've always liked about Godzilla in reference to other giant monster things. The Kaiju have their own proper name that belongs to them, and to them alone.

Shinomura was a cool name, shame it was relegated to a D-list Kaiju that we will never see again

I know, right? There's like a whole page dedicated to it! I sure am glad I stumbled into the Godzilla vs Kong thread out of idle curiosity, I was beginning to think I'd never find a place to talk about A Quiet Place. Maybe they should just cancel GvK altogether so we can all go see A Quiet Place 2 and discuss that here come March 2020?

Cheesy, but still a better name!

Heck, if you wanted to keep the whole behemoth dynamic:
Elehemoth.
