I find the old Yongary movie to be a bit boring, to be honest. I had a hard time sitting through the whole thing. Also, it features (IMO) the most annoying kid in a kaiju film that I have ever seen! The 1999 movie is more entertaining, but suffered horribly due to the terrible CGI. Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus had better effects for crying out loud! I think I would like that movie a lot better if they had just stuck with a guy in a suit.
As for the monsters themselves, they are, like Godzilla and Zilla, completely different creatures. I don't mind Yongary, although the suit's quality and fire breath effects had a lot to be desired. His horn laser is probably my favorite aspect of him. He reminds me of a mobster you would se in a Showa Gamera movie, glowing eyes and all. (Just about every Showa Gamera monster, Gamera, Barugon, Gyaos, Virus, Zigra, and Jiger had glowing eyes).
Reptilian, as I like to call him, remindes me of a lizard version of Heisei Gamera, that doesn't fly. He's okay, but his CGI model is horrible. Absolutely horrible.

Ask all of us if we give a shit.
