Dark Discussions Podcast - Episode 387 – Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019)
Kaiju monster movies or their kin have been around for over 90 years. KING KONG from 1933 may be the very first. While there were a number of “one off” films starring various monsters, one creature, Godzilla, has sprung a number of films in its franchise. As of 2019, the latest in the so called Monsterverse was released entitled GODZILLA: KING OF THE MONSTERS.
Monarch, an organization that tracks the giant monsters, is hit by a terrorist attack. Some of their technology is hijacked. Soon a number of kaiju are revived and begin to attack throughout the world. With his daughter disappearing, former Monarch doctor Mark Russell (Kyle Chandler) is brought back in to help track why this new wave of monster aggression is occurring. A question is presented whether or not there was an inside job that has caused the entire bedlam.
A follow up to the 2014 film GODZILLA, this new movie stars Kyle Chandler, Vera Farmiga, Charles Dance, and Ken Wanatabe. Unlike its predecessor, the movie has reviewed mixed reviews and its box office has been uneventful. Dark Discussions takes a look at this new film and gives their opinions.
