Godzilla vs. Kong

Godzilla vs. Kong ★★★½

Suuuuuuuper satisfying on many levels. Easily the best city destruction scenes outta any of the standalone MV entries, the Hong Kong fight is like something directly out of Destroy All Monsters Melee on the gamecube in such a way that it had to be intentional, and really just a lot of wish fulfillment all-round if you’re a fan of either of the icons in question here. And technically Wingard did live up to his promise of there being a definitive winner by the end, but it’s pretty clear who he personally favors by how much screentime he gives one group of actors over the other. Like usual too, all the human stuff blows! Happy for Bryan Tyree to finally get a front & center(ish) role in something a lot of new eyes are sure to see but you can miss me with all the Millie Bobby Brown/Rebecca Hall bullshit. 
It really feels like a blessing to have been able to see this in a (15% capacity) theater with a screen & sound system as massive as the setpieces deserve. Can’t say how it would’ve played at home on the first watch but I’m excited to give it a try later!
