Anyone else as excited as I am about this? I freely admit - I'm way more excited about it than I really should be. I've been a fan of Godzilla flicks since they first came out around 200 BC (maybe that's a bit of a stretch, but not by much). The horrible English-dubbing, the awful lizard costume when you could basically see the zipper, terrible sound effects.... Those ALL somehow made the movies laughably horrible but still fun to watch.

Then came with the 1998 release - and it almost made me want to cry. It was simply awful, but had absolutely no redeeming qualities. So when Godzilla was again rebooted in 2014 I was super hesitant to watch. But the graphics and imagery - and the fact that there's an actual story line - really hooked me deep. King of Monsters was an amazing follow-up, and now Kong.

Go Godzilla! Kick that overgrown monkey back across the ocean!!!!!

It does look like a good time, I hear the fight scene on the ship is really long.

Man... all that build up and hype and I didn't even get to watch it yesterday. Life just gets in the way sometimes, hahaha

Clearly I'm in a league of my own here. lol

So I'll end after this. Watched the movie yesterday. It was outstanding. The director kept his word that there would be a clearly defined winner between the 2 monsters. Would highly recommend to anyone that likes a lot of action and a lot stuff that just goes BOOM....There's also a plot-line, if that helps. lol

I could never really get into the Godzilla vs Kong "stuff" for the very reason you first stated, zippered costumes, etc. Thanks for the review..... I may have to consider it...

My son's friend got a group of friends together, and they all chipped in to rent out a whole theater for a showing so that they controlled who was in the theater, etc. I think it cost them about $20 apiece, and it was very worth it to them. My son said it was very enjoyable. I'll still probably watch it from home though.

My daughter did the same thing with her boyfriend and his family. They rented an entire theater for their group of about 10. Worked out to $20-$25 each.

I enjoyed the earlier versions of both Godzilla and Kong, back in the days when everyone was not so woke.
