    so normally i'm the first to complain when these movies focus too much on the human characters despite promising non-stop kaiju action, but i actually quite liked this one. i really like this sort of '60s sci-fi vision of the future (although the "future" imagined here is now 20+ years in the past), and all of the production and costume design here is really stunning - in many ways it reminds me of the best of the evil lairs fromโ€ฆ

    there's a specific kind of joy and pride that i feel watching scottish people shine, and i'm definitely feeling it after watching this.

    i'm from a small town in scotland, so the sense of loving and hating the place you're from that weaves through this really struck a chord with me. i've run through streets and parks just like these, i've gotten into fights with the young team round here, and i spent most of my youth wanting nothing moreโ€ฆ

    long live mother!

    could only find a dubbed version of this, which added a real layer of chaos to the whole thing. a lot of really fun martial arts choreography here, including a fun scene with michelle yeoh schooling a man with a block of tofu and her kung fu prowess. as always michelle yeohโ€™s charisma and talent are infinitely compelling - even this early in her career her star power is undeniable.

    holy fuck.

    there's an 8 minute sequence in the middle of this movie where godzilla lays waste to an entire chunk of tokyo which had me sitting completely still, eyes and mouth wide open in shock. i don't think i've ever seen large scale destruction look so impressively, terrifyingly realistic in another movie.

    in general, the movie does an amazing job of balancing scenes of unbelievable destruction with long, drawn out scenes of bureaucratic back and forth over who takesโ€ฆ
