          Pic not related? That looks like one of the generic monsters they'd have Kong kill and eat.

    Godzilla is based on Japan's cultural trauma of the atom bombs. Hollywood lacks the perspective and/or the courage and/or the imagination to take a look at itself or the United States at large create a monster that reflects a modern tragedy.

      IDK man King Kong is pretty fricking spot on for showing a decision that changed the country forever. Bringing a dark beast from Africa to destroy our cities and try and snatch our women...

      I mean your post sounds smart, but you're so wrong I must call you a fricking moron. He and Godzilla even have a movie together, I mean, god damn dude.

        Problem with comparing King Kong to blacks is that there have been black slaves on U.S. soil since Jamestown was first settled whereas King Kong was brought to an already matured and industrialized America.

          the message is that you can't take the jungle out of the beast
          kong comes to america and immediately chimps out

            I am the original king kong anon and yes exactly this, but also it reflects on America's forward thinking and moneymaking progressivism at all costs, no matter the disaster. It really is the perfect american monster.

            You could even go further and say it exemplifies Americas lack of creativity and our focus on industrialism and command of nature and efficiency as our monster is just a big dumb boring animal from nature, it isn't even irradiated or anything.

          The MUTO trash was a cloverfield ripoff, the op kaiju is just the world's most generic ice dinosaur design imaginable

    And Godzilla was Japan's attempt at making their own King Kong after the 50s re-release of that film, mixed with The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms. Giant monsters have always been derivative.

    In all fairness,the same thing plagued Toho since the 90's even though they're cooler designs. They gave up on making wholly monster designs in favor of anchoring them to Godzilla. Biollane has Godzilla cells. Space Godzilla and Mechagodzilla 2 are both close to Godzilla's design, when Showa MG was more vaguely in the shape of Godzilla when he lost the disguise. Destroyah is an aweome design, but his overall build is Godzilla with horns and wings. Orga and Megaguirus both have to have Godzilla features shoved on them Monster X is the closest to a design that doesn't rely on being a Godzilla-like of the post-Showa, even then he's just a standard kaijin from a TV series really.
    If Gigan was made in the 90's he'd just have a Godzilla snout and separate eyes or something.

    I liked it. I wonder if they got rid of the director because he was planning on killing godzilla off next movie.

      The director turned down doing the next one because he's shooting a movie with A24.

    The ice dragon was the only thing i found really neat about this movie. Basically a counterpart to godzilla that was hidden in the deep earth. His design is unfortunate but not all that terrible if indeed we go with the "there are two of then now" thought process. One hot one cold.
