Especially with the promises the end of Kong gave us on the cave paintings. The way Legendary is shaping up, they really want the whole big robot/monster movie genre to work. Especially post-acquisition by Wanda who pushed Pacific Rim 2 to full production. And the way Toho is really trying to reinvigorate its biggest properties after the hiatus imposed post Final Wars has really been paying off. Granted Resurgence was maybe a little bit more teasing of bureaucracy than I would've liked, it was still an effective and pulverizing display of what big monster movies can still offer us.
I'm hoping that Legendary tries not to fall into the Godzilla vs rut and just make those sorts of movies. I really like the vs movies, but for some reason I always felt they were a cheap popcorn flick. I dunno, maybe that makes the social commentary films more special to me in the end.
You see Kong yet?
Dammit, Pacifista. There's nobody else on this forum who enjoys those movies like you do. I need you to see it. lol
And yes, you are definitely right. What a time to be alive when people are taking Monster films seriously again and bringing them back tot he big stage in such a way.
Oh what do ya work as?
What do you think about the upcoming Godzilla anime?
Are you jap?
That's right, I remember you saying something about how you spent time in Japan and were getting ready to head back. That's pretty cool!
But yeah, I just got done seeing it yesterday. Even if it's not perfect I'll mirror GP's opinion on how it fixed a lot of what went wrong in Godzilla. I won't elaborate on any of it but I think you'll enjoy it.
lol Where the heck do you live that won't have Kong?
Because that sucks a lot. A WHOLE lot. I heard the movie is great.
Gonna see Kong tomorrow?
Come join us in Ordeal of Blood!
Or I will never forgive you.
I was legit shocked by what I saw. It was definitely a movie that defied what I thought was coming more than a few times. Thematically, humor wise, and in other obvious ways.
And yeah for sure! Let us talk about it some when you get a little time, because this was definitely a unique movie worthy of a little conversation.
