Godzilla: King of the Monsters Review

HOLY SHIT! THIS WAS FUCKING AWESOME! Whoever made this movie knew every button to push to make me happy, and pushed them many, many times! I was concerned going in that it might be a little too much drama but let me tell you, fam, that there was so actual little of that shit going on!

This was straight up, Grade A, no holds barred CHOMP-AND-FUCKING-STOMP! Almost entirely filled with RAWRS and screams and wrestling moves on a like three hundred feet high scale with lots of SHIT SHIT SHITS and then more RAWWWRS and I mean really if that doesn’t convince you that you need to see this movie than you are not the right person for this movie and need to just not watch it to begin with.

If you’d seen me watching Godzilla: King of the Monsters, you’d thought I’d went crazy. I was all the fuck into this movie. Clapping my hands over my mouth, ramming my back against the seat, silently screaming, clapping as silently as I could, chanting FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT and doing plenty of “OH SHIT” myself.

Millie Bobby Brown worried me. I mean, yeah, she was okay in Stranger Things but could she do a Godzilla movie justice? (A proper Godzilla movie and not that dusty-ass, so-boring-I-tried-three-times-to-watch-it-and-failed-each-time POS that was the previous attempt at giving the world the Godzilla movie it wanted.) Well, the answer is YES! She freaking did it justice. I even outright cheered for her at one point. Vera Farmiga didn’t exactly stretch her acting wings, but she did a good job too.

Forty minutes after watching the film I still had an insane grin on my face. I’ve been in a bit of a not-so-great mental state lately where I’ve had trouble connecting with anything. Apparently all I needed was gigantic monsters battling it out on a huge screen to make me reconnect with my emotions a bit.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters is pure glorious action that is occasionally hampered by some extremely cheesy lines. (Seriously – just because the film was mostly chomp’n’stomp doesn’t mean you don’t need someone watching the dialogue to make sure no one sounds like an idiot!)

Overall, my feelings are firmly on the side of “Stop listening to me prattle about it and just go watch the damn movie!Godzilla (1998) was my favorite Godzilla movie up until today. It has been thoroughly squished by Godzilla: King of the Monsters. It’s loud, it’s got very little plot, a shit ton of action, and it made me happy clear down to the tips of my toes.

Just. fucking. awesome. Not perfect, but still awesome.
