Of all the different combinations of monster fights we've seen in these movies over the last fifty+ years, two big teams (3 or 4 monsters a piece minimum) going after each other still hasn't been done. It stings even worse when you remember early drafts for GvGigan had two teams of three monsters brawling.

Ask all of us if we give a shit.

In fact that was one thing I was really disappointed about this film. When they were still making it and they released concept art of all the monsters that would be in it I thought we'd be getting multiple fights maybe even three on three fights. Nope, instead we get Godzilla versus everyone and the closest we even get to a tag team is Monster X and Gigan, the latter of who leaves the fight to take on Mothra who is supposed to be Godzilla "ally/partner" in that fight yet neither one so much as acknowledges each other.

A film that basically says life in New York City is just one big racial stereotypical war between gangstas' and the police, and mocks its fan base with some chocolate mouthed kid that would throw his toys in the fire has no class IMO.

A tribute would be taking something, essentially putting it on a pedestal and talking about how great it is. Holding it to a higher degree and making other people realize how amazing it. GFW does not do that for the Showa era. Not in the slightest.
