Godzilla vs. Kong

Godzilla vs. Kong ★★

deeply stupid. the fights are great. they look cool. they’re also maybe 20-30 minutes of the 2 hour runtime? and there’s essentially no conflict for the first 40 minutes. for all the things wingard said about wanting a big dumb monster fight movie, i can’t fathom why 80% of it ended up as nonsensical narrative drivel. why are there so many different useless characters, and why is the movie so uninterested in all of them as it devotes screen time to them? just completely hollow; maybe a result of 5 different credited writers. it loses all of the man + science vs. nature in favor of.. a conspiracy theory podcast about how fluoride in water is bad? or something? they decimate hong kong and don’t mention it at all. braindead.
