    Dragon Japan. So far nothing compares or even comes close to the Impact Godzilla has evolved on Earth, If anything the message is laud and obvious that some things are more a threat then Godzilla could be. So People enjoy the vids and have a good feeling is what this Godzilla is all about. Peace and be safe.

    next time minus the human characters or at least make them fear for their lives.. i didn't see any horror in their eyes.. they just acted like it's totally normal to stand if front of a titan... man!! We might die on spot from a heart stroke if we ever encounter a monster that big + looking straight at us or coming for us :s. it would be too overwhelming! but they just had to put some cliche heroic stunts.why.. specially "EL" (Millie Bobby Brown) she's like, fight with a serial killer. lol..! Humans are pissant in front of titans, period. Dear film makers, please stop hollywoodizing everything// add some realistic sense. but anyway, they made the monsters look awesome than ever ♥ loved it!

    You may think Godzilla KOTM is a big dumb monster brawl movie, but on closer examination it is a lot smarter than you think.

    How about a douche bag female scientist who can't control her own child? OR are you little boyz all "in love" with an obnoxious brat, like in Transformers '17? These brats should be SEEN but not HEARD in these flicks. After shooting a guy right in the head, BRAT flips the old dude the bird but doesn't get bitch-slapped? Not likely!

    Seems I'm against the group on this but I thought this was not a good Godzilla movie, nor the 2014 movie, went back and saw it second time since my brother really wanted to see it, merely told him i didn't like it, let him make up his own mind, he hated it too, on the rewatch was where all of it's story flaws really became obvious.

    Love the idea of monster figthing.
    And to be honest i would love more like them but i dont know, some of the topics i dont know, is like the creators, in the first godzillas have an idea of the topics, but in today, they should have done more research.
    I have to see the movie, because probably i am wrong, so it is higly proable i am wrong.
    So honest opinion ahead, i will watch the movie, but just for te monster not political things if i manage to watch it
    Personaly i hate these ecological movies, why because, more and more i beleive that the earth has these changes naturaly.
    Also i hate ecologiest aht in the paris acord their solution is lets spend oney, billions upon bllions, asking another country to stop using coal.
    Also you want to save the planet, instead of spending billions in social and wealthfare programs, instead of wasting billions dismantling industry.
    Lets create solar farms in deserts, or create coastal wind turbines, also by destroying the industry you create pobrety, poor people dont care the evniroment, you want to end pobrety, stop subsidicing bad decicion.
    The only part i agree in the politicla especter, is the faith one, why not doing that, or increasing that, do a mothra movie about that, godzilla as punish or te hubris of humanity and mothra the savior, an alegory to a movie that i think is needed.
    Also i love that woman, beleive that causing hatred, death and destruccion, is te solution, d you known what it reminds me, it reminds me to these, one death is a tragedy, in her mind, killing hundreds of millions is a ok, the same happen to me earth girl Juna, killingmillions is ok, the death of her best frinds father is ok, to restore eath, but you can do these wiouth the sacrifice, blaming the industry and capitalism, even when they also create hatred and destruccion.
    Personaly, i find sad, because all the messages in the other godzilla movies, i never see them, but the messages in the old movies were intresting an amaizing, and i even would aprove, but when you start wth, hey humans are bad and cruel, in order to save humanity lets kill humanity, because it is necesary,.
    I would say ok, lets start with your famili, your love ones, you jumo, and they will sudenly put an excuse.
    Also any one that beleives that you can not have a dumb funny movie of monster figthing wiouth a message that wouldnt be good is not true, Pacific Rim i know have a message but the movie was more an omage to anime mech, and i love it, why it is so wrong to have a movie wiouth a political crap.
    Sorry Godzila but these movie message i am tired of hearing that the earth needs help and that, but we are going to save the earth, by making uhmans hate everithing and die, needesly

    Throughout Godzilla King of the Monsters, Madison accesses areas better than other people because of her visual beauty; at the very end of the movie, when the monsters are bowing and showing respect to Godzilla, they are doing so because Madison's visual beauty is looking at them while they are doing it

    I predicted in Godzilla vs Kong that Godzilla is gonna be the villain and Kong is the hero. Godzilla killed Ghidrah, which all the monsters now bowed to him like he's the new King. Godzilla is gonna become ruthless and mad who will kill anyone who is a threat, just like every King. Kong will be a threat to Godzilla. Oh, the word "King" was not used on the film titles, Kong: Skull Island and Godzilla vs Kong. So Kong is not a King yet? I predicted Kong is gonna beat Godzilla in the next film, and Kong will be declared as the new King of the monsters. Yeah, his name will be King Kong. Fans speculated that Godzilla is gonna win because Kong won in the original film. It's pretty predictable.

    Correction. Ghidorah didn't nearly defeat Godzilla until the very last battle. Their first fight, King G. ran away. The second Godzilla had the upper hand by dragging King G. into the ocean. If it were not for the Oxygen Destroyer (which was also in the first black and white Godzilla movie) Godzilla would have won. The only way King G. could defeat Godzilla was to take him into the air and drop him from a very high distance. So to recap, Godzilla 2, King G. 0 and one abstention (King G. leaving the fight).

    I disagree with the films contradiction it teaches us to be weary of false saviors and if people will uncloud their minds it is easy to see that their are plenty of false saviors championing climate change. Also those who try to fix it but don't truly understand it. To them their "virtue" is enough to fix the problem.
    Good example is someone like Leonardo DiCaprio, I love him as an actor. He is supposedly a big champion for climate change yet he owns a gas guzzling yacht, flies thousands of miles on a gas guzzling jet to accept a climate award. If he wanted to send a real message he would skype on a big screen and spend way less fossil fuel, but that is frowned upon. Because it is a "do what I say not what I do" with the elite. You are a horrible person for driving an SUV because you are a commoner. It doesn't matter if I consume more gas than a mid-western town I am a noble. This goes with all other aspects of what they do. You shouldn't have guns and you don't need to have armed security to protect our children. But we have private security to protect ourselves and our elite children because we are famous and important. All while they rant about income inequality it is sad joke.
    Yes often our saviors know little, hurt things more than they help, and are quick to act. This isn't just Hollywood, but governments are also ignorant in this fashion they will create laws that will look good on paper, but often don't take responsibility for unintended consequences. You can't side with the eco terrorist even if they know that Kaiju poop will make plants grow because they do bad things. We are not going to save the planet by doing bad things.

    The reason why king ghidora has always a storm around him wherever he goes is because he is terraforming the earth. He is extraterrestrial so he needs to change the world to make it more suitable to him.

    "thanos is a big influence" The point isnt they're copying thanos, its that film makers are conscious of the impending environmental threat to our planet and they're trying to bring these ideas to light. Also Ghidora in this movie is the methane stores under the icecaps of the south (and especially) north poles which has been established that if these stores get into the atmosphere it will be doomsday for climate change as if they get released climate change will be irreversible. Generally good vid tho

    The director didn’t make the mistake with the climate terroists being the ones to release Ghidorah. They represent the zealous nature that even people with good intentions can have but may ultimately lead to destruction as well

    I saw the movie in theatre. i dont why know nobody talks about vera farmiga's weak ass performance and dialogue delivery, she was the only weak part of the film and i dont know at times it seemed she is directly and deliberately contradicting everyone's good performance by her bad performance. her part was that of a plot catalyst just like loki in avengers coming through the cosmic cube portal, the scene wouldve sucked if tom was a horrendous actor as vera farmiga.

    @6:50 that is a cross, not a crucifix! You can ONLY call it a crucifix if Jesus (or anyone for that matter) is nailed to it.
    With Jesus = crucifix.
    Without Jesus = cross
    You can't call a cross a crucifix when there is no body crucified on it!!!!!

    Honestly if you remember godzilla being an alagory for nuclear power, it's a message of nuclear power as the answer to global warming.
    The problem with most renewables energy sources is either reliability or storage. Neither of those problems apply to nuclear power.
