idk, did i watch the same teaser as everyone?
Considering the source material, if this trailer doesn’t seem like a legit 21th century version of G x M x KG, what does?
… or let me go OT for a moment:
at the moment, western godzilla feels more godzilla than the last J-godzilla did/does.
yes, I do have the BR of shin godzilla, and have watched it twice already, and, even though i love what anno did, re give japan sth to think about, it just didn’t feel like a proper G-movie should, it never managed to capture that elusive feeling of a wacky late showa era movie, the popcorn-movie entertainment of heisei-flicks, nor the suspense- or massive showdown-moments that the millenium installments pushed to perfection:
compared to the lacklustre, trashy, the successful and the boring 1997 versions that span across the varied history of the franchise™®© a.k.a. other big-g movies, imho shin belongs in the first category at best, ‘don’t care’ at worst. Compared to a Final Wars or Giant Monsters All-Out Attack, it feels like 1997 all over again.
so, now that i finally am watching a trailer that feels like it knows that there has been Giant Monsters All-Out Attack, and seems to follow up on the tone set in that epic melee battle (maybe one of the best of the series), i am pretty excited with what I can see.
It even seem to care enough as to include a specific reference to the king-bit in the subtitle of the movie yet also foreshadow the inevitable King Gidorah appearance.
Yes, it still can fall flat on its face, be too much CG action, have US bromance written all over it, butwatch the trailer, seriously! it feels right, a feat that the japanese - so far - haven’t managed to dial in yet.
so, for the sake of watching GxMxKG, i can take some america==best bits as long as they manage to capture the essence of the monsters, and hell does it look like they did.
