The difference here is that I can find everything I like about it in other Godzilla movies. The negatives decidedly outweigh whatever positives there are.

I mean every Godzilla movie has its strengths and weaknesses, they either have a great story or great spectacles, or both going on for them , but some fans are quick to ignore things like execution for the sake of all-out action to keep them interested. As long as the scenes are moving along and it’s snappy, it’s automatically “good” to a lot of fans and arguing about things things like faithfulness and execution just goes in one ear and out the other.
This film caters to what Toho (or someone) thought its target audience was I feel.
There’s just two sides of the overall fandom, not everyone fits this mold mind you but there’s a lot that do.
I have no problems with a movie being “fun” but that “fun” has to work and throwing a bunch of ideas all together without much thought might not be the best thing to do for a franchise as long running and set in its ways as this one.
There’s a right way to be different and a wrong way.
Yeah, Godzilla wins... sometimes. I mean, he was killed by Dr. Serizawa's patented bubble-bath formula, heartburn, missiles, and poor box office returns, got his ass kicked by a drunken, circus-escaped gorilla, then he was beaten by two newborn worms, yeah some “king”.
