This feels more like a Fansboy's film


Where the filmmakers place more emphasis on mindless action/fanservice rather than story. Just like the DCEU films.

What, if anything, is inherently wrong with making a film for the fans who love the film?

What the makers of Godzilla:KOTM did was to try and reproduce what made other Godzilla films popular. I don't think they did what Warner/DC did, which was listen to ONLY certain fans (the most vocal ones) and try and create a film JUST to appease those core fans. In other words those Core DC fans got what they wanted.

Watch the Japanese Godzilla films of the ‘60s and you’ll understand why Godzilla fans don’t give a shit about dialogue and in-depth storylines.

I think you're forgetting that those fans are children. What made this new movie so great is that it's got all the elements we loved as children, but in a film an adult can enjoy.

I grew up on this sh*t all thru the ‘70s.

I pretty much love ALL Godzilla films.

Even that ridiculous film with Matthew Broderick with the vomitable Puff Doodoo version of Led Zeppelin’s “Kashmir” in the end credits.

If that makes me a “fanboy”...so be it.

Well, I must be a "Fansboy's" then, because I loved it.
