I'm just trying to make my art and writing good enough to properly tell the stories that swirl inside my head. Then maybe the voice in there will stop nagging me. Probably not, but maybe.
Interests
Since I've seen several others give their thoughts on the film, I might as well too...

I hated it.

More accurately, I loathed every aspect of it. There's no "but" here. As far as I'm concerned, it has no redeeming features. It's an shallow, generic, and, worse of all, INSULTING followup to one of the most passionate and soulful films of all time. The original is far from perfect, but it was made with love that was tangible. This movie ruins everything its predecessor so carefully crafted. I mean, it ruins it all across the board. It's almost amazing in a horrid way, like a train wreck or something. It broke the logic of the first movie, it defaced the characters, it neglected the themes, it did everything it could to fly in the face of the first. I've seen a lot of reviewers say it's just okay to mediocre as a standalone film, but I don't think that's fair. It's not a standalone film, it's a sequel, so it should be judged as one. And as a sequel? I think it's as bad as it could possible be.

It managed to surpass Shin Godzilla as my least favorite film of all time, and anyone who knows how I feel about that film can tell you that's a goddamn feat. At least Shin has SOME things I can compliment.

I'm really disheartened, guys. Besides the fact that I've never regretted wasting time and money on something more, I've only enjoyed two out of the six big time kaiju movies of the 2010s. And it seems like next ones are geared to follow in the footsteps of the underwhelming Kong: Skull Island instead of 2014's Godzilla, which is literally my worst fear for the MonsterVerse.

Long story short, I have now fully transitioned into a grump old man.
