Original Release: June 30th, 2018
First of all, tell me that title isn’t fucking amazing in all the worst ways.
Secondly, this movie is pretty good. Just like all the others, it was the first for many things. First of all, it was the first film starring aliens, seeing as space travel was fresh in everyone’s mind with the Space Race going on between America and Russia. It was also the first to focus on aliens controlling the minds of the giant-monsters to attack the humans.
I assure you, that plot will become so common it hurts.
It was also the first film that Godzilla wasn’t just made for kids: he became genuinely goofy. Don’t believe me? Just take a look at this.
Tell me you didn’t crack a smile. I dare you.
There’s really not much to talk about with this movie. It’s arguably one of the cheesiest films in the entire Godzilla franchise (which I assure you is a fucking statement) and it was simple and fun to watch. Which, at this point in the series, was all it needed to be.
Honestly though, after that dance is done, the film kinda goes down hill. Not bad, but I mean, come on. How can you beat that? I mean, that’s simply-
God I love this series.
