Enjoyed it knowing very little about the backstories. I had to piss really bad 1/3 into the movie so kind of spoiled the mood. Fwiw I felt connected to all characters and things. When the little boy looks out the school window...those feels.Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
If anything I felt like Godzilla felt disconnected to everyone else in the movie. Almost as if he was in the background at times just cruising, showing very little interest. Only up to the fight scene. I guess I would have preferred to see some more character development with Godzilla, so, in other words more screen time.
I don't like packed theaters. Of course right at the start the movie the room fills up 2x, but I got good seating. 4 tickets sold and I bought 5 and 6 lol
Not really a spoiler but my bro pointed out how thick Godzilla's legs were in proportion to the body and the prior US iteration, which I said was too similar to a dinosaur. The way I see it is that Godzilla is like a form of deity / god and so he in comparison to Muto was more man-like with greater utility e.g. Walking, grappling. The presence to be able to walk on hind legs and arms to grasp, to stand erect at ones will, is more empowering versus another flying-alien-like-creature that becomes too sci-fiEdited by gettoasty - 5/20/14 at 11:51pm
