Film is pretty rad
Oh man. Just sat there slack-jawed wiping tears from my eyes when those credits started to roll. You’ve seen my profile picture, so you know it’s heavy when I say this is his most emotional, most complex, most reflective, most vivid work yet and I don’t think it’s really possible to process everything without repeat viewings. But the statements being made on loss and grief rung truer than I was prepared for. Staggering. We really are blessed. Can only imagine how cathartic this was for Miyazaki to make & in my eyes, our greatest living filmmaker has one more masterpiece under his belt
Goddamn. Out of the 38 Godzilla films, yeah this is eaaaaaaasily top 3 and there’s not even a convo to be had about it. Making the protagonist someone you actually want to see survive, truly a game-changer (not even trying to be funny)! It’s grotesque in all the right ways, so crowd-pleasing/accessible for newbies & still manages to scratch that 38 movie-deep itch that only seems to grow stronger each year for us diehards. Best atomic breath scene of the whole franchise, let’s go guys
First time I left the theater for this, I feel like I couldn’t have accurately recounted the plot if you had a gun to my head lol. Honestly so sick how much of the narrative falls into place the second time around. English dub really solid too, think I’ll go with the sub for the next several viewings tho!
