Godzilla: King of the Blah

Good morning all. Hope everyone had a nice weekend! Now it’s Monday and all the fun is gone, just like Godzilla: King of the Monsters! I went to see that Sunday. I was trying to really put my finger on why I didn’t enjoy it. There are a lot of technical things: bad casting, horrible dialog, insane plot. My biggest complaint, however, was that the movie just wasn’t fun. It was over the top, but it was played very straight and serious, up to the point where there is just unintentional moments of comedy. The actual moments when jokes are used, they fall flat. Very flat. Maybe I’m just too big of a fan of the Japanese movies and the guy running around in a rubber suit. There is a campiness to that and the material is not taken too seriously and they are fun. This one is taken WAY too seriously. Every scene is just over the top. For me, it was just a bland movie with good CGI. Nothing new to offer.

Take care!
