Saw it last Thurs and want to see it again...IMAX in Bryan.

Rarely does something exceed expectations, but this did.

Just saw it - it was enjoyable. It wasn't great; it wasn't horrible. Fun flick!

saw it last night...was worried based on what some hear said but I shouldn't have. This is the best Godzilla movie ever made. Action scenes were fantastic, Godzilla was awesome, Monster Zero was well done!

Yes, the dialogue was campy, but who cares. It's a movie about MONSTERS!!!

One thing though, where did some of the other monsters come from? Never seen some of them before (gigantic mammoth, spider like thing.... Also, they were supposed to ALL be awake (17 and counting) yet their were only 4 at the end with Godzilla....??

My thought was that with all 17 scattered all over the planet, only a handful could have traversed that distance and made it to Boston in that amount of time.

17 or not, my question was more of WTF are these monsters....I've seen all the Godzilla movies (as a kid) and flat out don't ever remember seeing some of them.

All are original creatures for the movie. Legendary only has the rights to Godzilla, Ghidorah, Rodan and Mothra. Every individual character has rights so if Legendary wanted to get more, it would have been a lot more expensive.

There's a question I can't shake. In hindsight, I just can't figure out why on earth Tywin Lannister and his soldiers murder every single person in the facility at the beginning of the movie. What is their purpose or goal for the attack? On first watch, I was thinking it was to kidnap the mother and daughter, but mainly to get the communication device. Once we know the mom's true goal, it makes no sense. She literally had the device at home with her that morning. Why murder all those people? Later, we are supposed to have a bit of sympathy for her in a, "I must do something terrible for what I think is the greater good", but her friends/co-workers didn't have to die, and it really makes her an irredeemable character IMO.

Only thing I can come up with is they needed to confirm the device worked and maybe free baby Mothra. Well, one, it looked like Mothra was leaving the facility with or without her. Two, I got no sense that the device was going to be stolen from her once it was shown it worked.

Am I missing something?

The interesting thing about Emmerich's comment, other than the fact that he's basically in so many words admitting a partial defeat with 'King of the Monsters,' is the implication about what would cause a delay with "Godzilla vs. Kong." You see, filming of the latest film is already wrapped, and production was seemingly on pace to easily be ready by March. But what is likely is that additional photography will be ordered and some significant changes will be made, which would necessitate the delay.

However, the other option would be that WB wants to delay the release to avoid the short gap between films and to make sure it doesn't have the competition that spring 2020 brings. But it's also likely that we're looking at a combination of both reasons.

Loved it. Saw it in IMAX and it was worth every damn penny.

Finally saw this last night. First of all, FU Xbox because I purchased the movie only to get an error and was unable to watch in my home theater. It did work online though, so I had to watch on my computer with headphones.

That aside....I was disappointed in this. I was made to believe that this movie was much more monster and much less humans. There was too many human scenes and they were terrible bad. I hated the mom. Completely irredeemable in my eyes.

Monster scenes were fun but I think I like the first Godzilla movie with mutos better.

Just saw it. Pacing was awful. They could have made two movies, first one where halfway through Monster 0 gets released and the climax being the fallout from Rodan being set free / Monster 0 calling all the other monsters / Monster 0 setting up shop in DC. The second movie could have gone a LOT more in depth on what's happening around the world, humans regrouping, Godzilla beinf revived, and final battle.

This was extremely rushed and thus had horrible dialogue and weak acting.

That said,

I loved every second of it.
