Godzilla vs. Kong Was Good Stuff, Honestly

The good thing about having movies released straight to streaming is that Screen Junkies can just whip out these Honest Trailers right away. They don’t have to wait for digital and DVD releases! Is that a good thing? I don’t know anymore.

Anyway, here’s Godzilla vs. Kong! With complete spoilers.

Good times. I enjoyed Godzilla vs. Kong and would be very happy to see more. As I’ve mentioned in the past, there’s plenty of places to take this franchise.

This also means we’ll get an Honest Trailer for Mortal Kombat within a week!

Bring Me Gigan!

I saw Godzilla vs. Kong this past weekend and enjoyed the film, despite its many, many flaws. There is no word on whether or not Hollywood will continue this Monsterverse series, but I hope they do because these modern Godzilla movies are fun overall! With no word on what comes next, I am left to speculate and propose what we’ll see next.

Bring me Gigan!

This is called the Gigan Shuffle

The big alien beasty with blade arms and a buzzsaw stomach and the Cyclops visor first appeared in the classic Toho film Godzilla vs. Gigan, one of my favorites as a child. The movie featured Godzilla and Anguirus teaming up to take on the alien team of King Ghidorah and the new baddy, Gigan. The monster is, quite notably, an alien, and that’s where I think this franchise has to go next.

Godzilla vs. Kong leaned heavily into the goofier Godzilla classics. This franchise is no longer the tense, realism-based horror movie of the 2014 reboot. It’s big, silly, monster-bashing fun!

But rather than focus the next film on Hollow Earth, let’s look to the stars to a full-on alien invasion!

It’s actually a peninsula!

What better way to make Godzilla the hero? What better reason to have Godzilla, Kong, Mothra and Anguirus team up than to expel some alien invaders and their monster champion?

Aliens have already been part of the franchise. I recently rewatched Godzilla: King of the Monsters and they quite clearly say that Ghidorah came from outer space. So the seeds have been planted. Let’s take that to the next level for the next big movie.

I also just want to see the modern, detailed interpretation of that silly Gigan monster costume. I want a realistic-looking buzzsaw stomach!

There’s Gonna Be a Fight! Godzilla vs. Kong!

Behold! The rematch of the century! The slobberknocker to end all slobberknockers! Godzilla is gonna fight King Kong once again on the big screen! And for some reason, the first trailer seems to favor Kong…

What’s up with that?! The movie clearly appears to favor King Kong! Hello?! Godzilla is far more popular! Godzilla is our boy! Our collective boy! We should all be in Godzilla’s corner. But I suppose we’re going to have to watch the movie to find out what really happens.

Also, it seems another generic white male actor has been brought in to star in the film. What is up with that? Are they supposed to be interchangeable? And even though Millie Bobby Brown is coming back, and even though Godzilla: King of the Monsters introduced those Mothra twins, we apparently still need a white male as the lead character?

What’s up with that?

Godzilla vs. Kong is coming to both theaters and HBO Max at the same time on March 26.

Let’s Watch Something Truly Spectacular!

Sometimes in my eagerness to post something every day, I’ll fall back on some pretty standard YouTube stuff, like Honest Trailers or the like. It’s fun to watch, but is it really quality content? Am I truly bringing you readers something interesting to watch?

This time, I know for sure I’ve randomly stumbled across something truly spectacular! Behold, Pexachu vs. Godzilla!

This stop motion masterpiece was animated over the course of two years by Mootroid X Productions. They’re got a bunch of stop motion shows on their YouTube channel, so hopefully you enjoy some of those as well. I really loved this video and I am truly pleased to share and enjoy!

How Godzilla: King of the Monsters Should Have Ended

I love a good Monday where I don’t have to do much work. I can just search the internet and save one of those fun parody videos on YouTube. Wherein people with more talent and drive than me make actual, original content.

This one is pretty funny. The other monsters laughing at Godzilla not being able to fly is the funniest this channel has been in possibly ever. Hats off to the fine folks at How It Should Have Ended!

Though at this point, does anybody even remember Godzilla: King of the Monsters? Pretty forgettable flick.
