Godzilla vs. Kong

Godzilla vs. Kong!! The two most famous monsters of all time heading to face off one another for a rematch? Yes, a rematch!! 

As the release date comes closer, until we finally get to see Kong punch Godzilla in the face, the original film is now coming more to the public eye. Godzilla and Kong faced off almost 60 years ago. The film is the definition of the word cheesy. But I recommend giving it a watch as you can at least get a good laugh out of it nowadays. 

The film uses rubber suits and miniatures, but that doesn’t mean it’s boring. It’s the opposite. Throughout the plot, we get plenty of great monster action from Godzilla and Kong rampaging through Japan until they finally meet in one of the campiest battles of the century. The fight is filled with laugh-out-loud effects and goofy moments. Kong’s suit is especially laughable as it looks like roadkill. Either way, it would be a shame to miss out on the original epic monster clash before seeing the new one.

Moving over, the new movie is coming out, and many critics are already panning it, complaining about how it’s just going to be big, loud, and dumb. For many fans of Godzilla, and monster movies in general, this is nothing new and shouldn’t stop you from going to see it. Now and then, we could use big, fun blockbusters, especially during a pandemic. Seeing two of film’s most famous movie monsters duke it out is the perfect distraction for the world with everything that has been going on.

After many delays, Godzilla vs. Kong is set to release on March 31 this year. It will be released in theaters and on HBO Max. Although you should still stay home during the pandemic if you have the opportunity to go and see this film in a movie theater, which is the way it was intended.  This was a movie meant for the big screen!
