This probably needs to be injected into my veins...

I don't think Fincher has ever made a bad film... even when he's made films I don't like.

The comic this is based on could have been written for Fincher, too. Perfect matchup of director and material.

I'm in.

National cinema day, £3 a ticket.
We went to see barbie.
Enjoyable and wacky, Ryan Gosling delivered the line of the movie for me. Nailed the deadpan

Verdict on Monarch/Titan/Godzilla series as it stands:

GODZILLA (2014)- still a blast and a really good reintroduction of the classic creature feature.
KONG: SKULL ISLAND - This is the best of the 4 films's got the goods for giant monsters, but the human stories work in spades too.
GODZILLA: KING OF MONSTERS - Wayyyyyyyyy too much chatting in underground bases, WAY too many dark night time fights, not enough overall monsters bashing the shit out of each other. The nadir of the series, worst of the lot by a long stretch
GODZILLA VS KONG - a great return to form, probably ranks about halfway between KONG SKULL ISLAND and the first film. Mostly a blast, and the human stories while not GREAT, are WAY more entertaining than KoM was.

Next up MONARCH tv show on AppleTV+, and then next year GODZILLA X KONG: NEW EMPIRE which I assume will come off the back of them finding a way into the Hollow Earth where the titans come from in the last film.
