        All I know is my weeb, extremely nerdy 43 year old roomate who works in IT saw Godzilla Minus One with me, and he has seen literally every second of Godzilla media ever created, and he said he thought Minus One was the best Godzilla of this century. I haven't seen Shin Godzilla but I'm going to trust my extremely nerdy Godzilla loving roommates opinion on the matter.

          I think the majority consesus I have seen on Godzilla forums and online is that most people would rank Minus One really high up there, some even saying it may be the best overall Godzilla movie. I heard people watching it 4 or 5 times in theaters.
          Shin is a good movie too, but it is one of those movies that felt like you will wath it two or three times fully and be good. I think Minus One has the appeal of movies like Jaws where you can enjoy it multiple times and feel like you are enjoying it as much as you did the first time.

          I have seen every second of every Japanese and American Godzilla movie except for the anime trilogy, and I can confirm that Minus One is easily a top 5 contender. Personally it is my second favorite behind the original, but I also like Shin Godzilla quite a bit as well, even if not as much as M1 or 54.

      I also like how the military attacks look in the film. The tanks on the ground are shot in this pseudo-documentary look and the fighter jet attacks don't use a lot of fancy camerawork. Wish the explosions looked better but I guess the budget could only take them so far.

      Shin imo is a very creative. Both Shin and Minus one suffered equally from budgetary constraints but if you were to ask me which one I would want to see with a bigger budget I would say it's Shin.

          Yeah, and a bunch of scientist in a room discussing the giant monster is boring ass shit we've seen a dozen times in a dozen godzilla movies before. What I HAVEN'T seen is a story about a failed kamikaze pilot who gets his life mixed up with a giant lizard. That shit's way more interesting than 'moronic scientist #587 who is either trying to defeat Godzilla or use his DNA for a moronic science plan.'

          Brother, half of Godzilla is the Japanese people convening to decide what to do about Godzilla and then going about the execution of that plan. The family and romance angle is only in the first half of the movie.

        I haven't seen it, I just wanted to make an ignorant comment to ruffle your feathers. It's on my backlog though, I'll watch it soon.

        The only fricking way Shin would be considered a 'Kaiju wrestling match' is if you consider the humans the kaiju. Which, in this case, they were. How the frick would you feel if you got irradiated and started going through hyper accelerated evolution, and as your brain turns from instinct to sentience, all you feel is excruciating pain as your body pulls a caterpillar > butterfly using your skin as the cocoon. So you're running around, vomiting out blood as your body reconstructs itself, slowly realizing that the things running from you are actually intelligent, too. But you don't know how to communicate with them and only want the pain and suffering to stop. So after you cool down in the ocean from your transformation process and have regathered your thoughts, you try and follow the humans to where they're most grouped up, still confused and scared and not knowing what's going on, just wanting help. But when you get there, they start attacking you. Why? What did you do? You haven't done anything, so why are they hurting you? You just want the pain to stop, so you cry out. And your voice destroys them. It makes them stop. But you're angry. You're confused. You're hurt. You're scared. You want to protect yourself. And suddenly your body starts to change again. But this time, you understand what's happening. You feel yourself splitting off, becoming more than one. But then the tiny creatures come back. They attack you again. You stumble. They force something in your mouth. It makes your body grow cold and weak. You're scared. You want the pain to stop. You try your best to fight back, but you're trapped. You can't move, or see. All you can do is struggle, hoping to break free, no matter how long it takes.

        That's Shin in a nutshell. Scared, confused, freshly sentient creature gets attacked and imprisoned by smaller, angrier creatures that fear you for simply existing.

    Shin felt like it blew its load on the Tokyo scene and the movie was just over after that. Ran out of gas and just ended in the 3rd act. Thought the way they beat Godzilla was neat but there wasn't any real tension or anything.

    Minus One just knocked it out of the park with the third act. They wrote the characters well enough that you actually give a shit about them at that point, so there's a shitton of tension with them in harm's way and that awesome score blasting in the background. Even though noone dies and it's sort of a cheesey happy ending it's still IMMENSELY satisfying to see them beat Godzilla.

    Kind of matters what kind of movie you like more, but Minus One just did the human element really well in a traditional story sort of way, so I kind of lean towards that being the better movie since the story is able to stand on it's own without Godzilla. If you take the human parts of Shin it'd be a boring ass movie with flat characters noone gives a shit about.

    I love both, but Minus One is much more accessible for non-fans and gaijin, which is funny because the plot is very Japanesey on its surface. Shin is a satirical movie with much deeper subtext that most non-weebs who aren't aware of both Godzilla's history and the 3/11 disaster wouldn't understand. Minus One is much more on the nose, and doesn't really leave anything up to audience interpretation.

    I like both, but Minus One is a much smoother rewatch. I’m fine saving Shin for every 3-5 years, but Minus One could easily be an annual watch, just like Lord of the Rings.

    Watching Minus One again, I think it has a lot of international mainstream appeal because it almost feels like what would have happened if pre-Schindler’s List Spielberg had made a Godzilla movie. A lot of spectacle, a lot of “people looking up” shots, and a cast of likable characters connecting it all, and a decent human story with universal themes that transcend culture, and it does dip a little into the schmaltz occasionally. Tonally, it felt like a mashup of Jaws, Jurassic Park, and Close Encounters.

    Minus One actually made me care and root for the humans while still appreciating the destruction Godzilla causes. It's not perfect, though. Inconsistencies with radiation, pacing, predictable plot... They're predictions that I wanted to happen, though. It's a feel-good Godzilla movie that I can just consume without having to be reminded of how shitty real people are.

    Shin is an absolute pleb filter. Cinematically and thematically it is five times the movie minus1 wants you to think it is.
    While Minus1 pretends to be about the people it is just as much military propaganda as the US Godzilla films were.
    Anno not only managed to revive what made the original spirit of Godzilla movies shine, he also innovated it and made it a critique -and loveletter- to what makes Japan Japan. Shin is the actual honest one of the two films; while Minus1 is not telling you what it glorifies. Shin is the work of an artist, Minus1 is made by mere traditionalists. It figures why most people on here and in normie world will like the latter one more. Pleb taste.

      How does it 'pretend' to be about the people? The entire plot orbits the relationship between Shikishima and Oishi. Their reuinion in the hospital bed is the final major scene of the movie. Her sacrifice for him during the Automic blast was a major turning point for Shikishima's character. It inspires him and fuels his courage the rest of the movie, courage which he lacked before. Not to mention the common people all come together to devise a plan to thwart Godzilla without the militaries direct involvement, so I can't even begin to understand how you would think it is military propoganda

      You sound bitter and upset another great Godzilla movie came out. I'm not an adolescent so fortunately I can enjoy both Shin and Minus One for their unique merits. Only pleb here is you, I'm afraid.

      On the directing level, Minus One is so weak, impersonal and boring compared to Shin. Normies can't see that because they have no taste and no sense of cinematography, but God what a fall of quality between the two movies.

                Agreed, even though I didn't have the courage to watch Shin Kamen Rider because of the bad reviews.
                But I saw his first tokusatsu too, Shin Cutey Honey, which is big fanboy garbage. Let's say that he is an " artist ", for the worst and the best.

    Godzilla vs Mechagodzilla 2 and Godzilla vs King Ghidora beat both in both regards. Neither have scenes as good as any of these sequences. Plus, nu-Godzilla ALWAYS miss the tragic backstory of Godzilla.

        Godzilla is kind of like a natural disaster like a massive earthquake, volcano eruption or typhoon. It's indiscriminate but at least somewhat predictable with the targets it pick, and sometimes it does fight other worse monsters.

        So does GMK. All these movies have little stingers at the end, because Toho has a "rule" that Godzilla is not allowed to actually die except in the 1954 movie. In every other movie ending in his defeat, there's always a way for him to come back somehow in the future.

        Anno was an auteur in his EoE days - which is still the best thing he ever made, and is legitimately a top tier film. The problem is the he got old and became happy, thus he has none of his edge. Shin Godzilla is a very conventional, but well made film. I can't fathom how you can say liking it is contrarianism. The issue is that it's just another standard Godzilla arrives in Japan film, but with a gimmicky design and commentary. But what about the film is bad?

              Directing is weak, script and characters are garbage, CGI is sloppy.
              Plus

              Shin is an absolute pleb filter. Cinematically and thematically it is five times the movie minus1 wants you to think it is.
              While Minus1 pretends to be about the people it is just as much military propaganda as the US Godzilla films were.
              Anno not only managed to revive what made the original spirit of Godzilla movies shine, he also innovated it and made it a critique -and loveletter- to what makes Japan Japan. Shin is the actual honest one of the two films; while Minus1 is not telling you what it glorifies. Shin is the work of an artist, Minus1 is made by mere traditionalists. It figures why most people on here and in normie world will like the latter one more. Pleb taste.

              ,

              Great take over the normies' absence of taste, but you forgot to mention the exquisite sense of shot composition and editing Anno brought to the franchise. It was a true delight to enjoy a visual feast of this level on a Godzilla blockbuster made for normies.
              On the directing level, Minus One is so weak, impersonal and boring compared to Shin. Normies can't see that because they have no taste and no sense of cinematography, but God what a fall of quality between the two movies.

              and

              Don't cry because you belong to the pleb and are unable to understand what I am talking about.

        And that is because you do not know the aspects of the american occupation of japan.
        In the early years of the occupation, it made perfect sense for the americans to not use any military influence in the gojira incidents and just order them to handle the matter themselves. Because they didn't care how many japs died as long as they kept their hands clean, they were the defeated enemy.

      "love letter" is just a way of saying the film doesn't stand on its own merits.

        Godzilla himself was straight out of the '54 original, but the human element in the story was original to Minus One, and I would say handled better and much more personal than the almost female led melodrama of the original.

    Minus One = soul (and that's a good thing)
    Shin = soulless (and that's a good thing)

    Shin = tragedy
    -1 = comedy (you laugh at the bad acting)

      The tragedy is how poor the pacing is in the second half.

    Minus One is pure kino.
    Shin Godzilla is japslop.
