Godzilla vs. Kong trailer just dropped. We have thoughts. We also have a boner. Let’s go! Come on! Godzilla vs. King Kong! Fuck, yes. Are you kidding me? Let’s go!
A battle royale in full CGI goodness? I’m in. I am ALL IN! Take my money, bitches. I want this. This movie is why the Lord invented computer graphics…. Okay…think I got that out of my system. Now we should talk about the actual trailer. The movie. Blah, blah, blah.
Yes, it looks like there IS a plot. Good! They need Kong to fight Godzilla. Fine. Godzilla, who just saved the world in the last flick, has gone bonkers and only Kong can stop him. Fine.
We all know that there is no way that’s the actual plot. There will be a twist. We all know this. Godzilla is a good guy. Same with Kong. There will be no winner. (Thoughts on that match up at bottom.) There will be a new enemy. Some enemy that was driving Godzilla to violence. By the end of the flick, ol’ Godzilla and Kong will team up and it will be epic AF. I’m cool with ALL of that. Now let’s nitpick. (RELATED: ‘Superman & Lois’ Trailer)
The score. The music. Yes, you want a younger demo to watch, but just slapping a hip hop song in the trailer ain’t gonna do it. This needs to feel big. Gimme an orchestra. Let’s get GRAND with this spectacle. Hip hop feels small.
Since when did Kong start using Thor’s hammer? Did you see that? Kong coming at Godzilla with a giant club/hammer thingy? WTF? No.
Clunky dialogue? Yes. Could’ve been avoided but oh, well. I’m still watching. Godzilla vs. Kong is set for a March 26, 2021 release date.
Who would REALLY win? Easy. Kong. Hands down. He’s a grappler. We’ve seen him rip a T-Rex apart. Literally. This fight is over before it starts. Now to the Godzilla peeps talking about atomic breath. Yes. I hear you. But it’s never Godzilla’s opening move. It’s a last ditch effort from ya boi. By the time Godzilla is thinking about unleashing his power move it’s too late. Kong is tearing his jaw off. Sorry. Them’s the apples.
Here’s the trailer.
