That's the kind of stuff that people see when they watch the fun Showa flicks and makes them think he's "gay" and just reinforces the sterotypes of the franchise. I'm not saying this film has to be the second coming (giggity) of G 1954 or even super dark and gritty with no comic relife or any fun but it needs to be somewhat serious so people don't just laugh it off and say "I'll pass and go see that new Batman movie instead".
See this something I disagree with. Wheter this is campy children's fare or insanely gritty and pessimistic, that fraction of the mainstream audience that sees the genre as trash won't give a damn. They'll pass and see the new Batman movie all the same.
Instead of being a "Look people, you should take Godzilla seriously" kind of film it should be a "This is what Godzilla is like, got a problem with it?" film. It should fully embrace what has made the franchise popular in the first place.
Then again why should I care, I'm seeing this movie regardless of what others think
Precisely, it should be fun for us to see Godzilla on theaters again, not some "Oh I'm worried about its performance" affair.
Every film should have at least one animal attack.
