Godzilla: King of the Monsters

Just a head’s up: I’ve never been a Godzilla fan, and up until the 1998 American version with Mathew Broderick, the only Godzilla movie I had ever seen was 1964’s Mothra vs Godzilla. So…

What I liked:

  • How much my Daughter enjoyed it (more on that later).
  • Mothra! She looked badass, as did the other monsters.
  • Incorporating the original Godzilla theme into the movie’s score.
  • Speaking of music, there’s a great cover of Blue Oyster Cult’s 1977 Godzilla song  during the end credits.
  • The movie has some cool camera shots to go along with the cool giant monster fights.
  • Hey, Rodan is Mexico’s monster! Yay!
  • The movie is part of another “Cinematic Universe”, building from the incredible Kong: Skull Island (check out our review of that movie here).
  • 2/3rd’s into the movie, my Daughter was enjoying the movie (and Godzilla himself) so much that she leaned over, gave me a kiss on the cheek and hugged me. As her Dad, I always try to provide her with love, guidance, compassion, food and really awesome entertainment. Her show of gratitude made me so happy, that I won’t even post the things I didn’t like with the movie. Let’s finish positive.

Overall:

  • It was pretty dang entertaining.
