[Movie] Godzilla 2 - X Titans??? [Spoilers from Trailer]

Post by Seethyr » Tue Apr 30, 2019 3:46 am

I don’t like spoiling anything, even if it’s in a trailer - some people don’t even watch those, ergo my tag.

But I could’ve sworn I heard them say 17 titans at some point. Whoah! I only knew about Rodan, Godzilla, Ghidorah, Mothra and possibly Kumonga. WHO ELSE????

I think King Kong vs. Godzilla will be a separate movie after Godzilla 2, but that doesn't mean the ape doesn't make an appearance of course. :)

I imagine almost every monster in Toho's library, and then some. Maybe even get to see Zilla...killed again ;)

That's what I thought! 17! And yeah, I only knew about those Seethyr posted, but it has been decades since I paid attention to Godzilla movies.

(Not since the Super Inframan, actually...) :cool:

So apparently the movie is really bad. Did anyone see it? What did you think?

Honestly, I am not surprised. I think it must be really hard to make an engaging story about this concept. While it is cool seeing awesome iconic monsters on the big screen, that alone doesn't make for a good movie. Having some characters that you can relate to and connect with would go a long way, but with the size of these creatures, humans will often be completely unable to affect anything that is happening around them.

How do you make a story like this engaging?

I haven't seen the movie, so no idea if it is as bad as some reviews make it out to be.

I've always wanted to see them go back to Godzilla's roots. That is, make it a horror movie. The 1954 flick was a horror movie (the original japanese version, especially). He turns cities to ash, with civilians not only fleeing but being burned alive. Hospitals overflowing with the dying, screaming in agony. They try it every now and again but never can pull it off like the 1954 flick did.

I loved the movie. I feel like critics don’t give high ratings unless the movie has some socially conscious aspect to it. Look at the fan ratings on rotten tomatoes instead.

I too loved the movie, perhaps more to the point, the friend I watched it with who knows his Godzilla lore loved the movie.

The reference was "17 and counting" for the number of known titans, but do bear in mind that they appear to be inventing some - the two from the first film were unknown to my friend so we believe them to be new.

As for King King - the reference in the film is actually to Skull Island - I don't remember him directly appearing or being mentioned (I may be wrong).

My friend also said that the next film will be "King Kong versus Godzilla" which means I now need to see the film Skull Island as it is in the canon continuity...
