7:32Ooh, it shoots webs, like a massive Spiderbug.
9:59Because of course the next logical step is to reach out and touch the terrifying monster.
10:46Wahey, Charles Dance doing his actual job.
17:53Skull Island mention.
18:39You can’t fly an Osprey down a lift shaft like that, crazy.
27:41“Oh yea, sure, let’s bring him in for a beer.”
39:07Oh my god, it’s got three heads. Horrific.
45:02It’s just like… why do I care if these massive things fight each other?
59:22Flying monster taking out a whole squadron is deeply unpleasant.
1:03:03Helicopter just crashed upwards, that’s a new one.
1:05:37Did Godzilla just flatline?
1:06:56If they’re waking up all the monsters, why isn’t Kong in this movie?
1:12:57“…and disasters we don’t even have names for yet.”
1:19:00Hello submersible team!
1:33:59It seems as though the code to the nuclear warhead was pressing 1 and then enter, which just doesn’t feel secure enough.
1:43:18I just have so many questions.
1:57:25If Godzilla is the King, does that mean Kong is not King anymore?

Thoughts

Terrible film. It had very little plot, it made no sense, it was really hard to care, and where was Kong in all this? Why did everyone suddenly fly Osprey’s everywhere? So much CGI, and for what? Dim and dusty shapes fighting each other at night and in water and barely visible. Bleurgh.
