It's ok to watch 50s outer space stuff on the small screen.
50s outer space was smaller.
When Kong punched Godzilla in the face, my wife and I looked at each other and burst into laughter. Give this team an Oscar for sound design.
That was amazing.
My 9 year old daughter predicted that Godzilla and Kong would team up to defeat the real enemy - humans.
I couldn’t have been prouder.
I say yes and no. I wouldn’t have wanted to watch it on the 13” Panasonic set I grew up with. Wouldn’t have been fun. But my living room is not very big, and I have a 50” wall mounted flat screen with a great picture.
I still love going to the movies. But this TV makes me miss it less.
I saw this is available on pay-per-view. Very tempted to watch it this weekend. Looks like we're going into lockdown, so I won't be doing anything. FWIW, I thought the two Godzilla reboots and Kong: Skull Island were among the best big-budget CGI wad blowing pics of the last ten years.
FWIW- we’ve been to the movies a couple times since lockdown. The local theaters here have a thing where you can rent the theatre and get a private showing for a new release movie. They allow up to ten people, and it’s $100. With what movie tix cost these days it’s really not bad, and you don’t have to put up with the crowd, or loud or otherwise inconsiderate idiots ruining the experience. We can’t afford to do it all the time. But as a special treat for the kids and ourselves we’ve gone twice in the last year. It was fun. Totally worth it.
you have completed stage one of your assimilation...EXcellent...
Yeah i can remember those outer space movies being square, and now they are rectangular. Do i need to find a vintage square TV to get the full out of those 50's movies ?
See, you actually don't want the screen to be too big for those older ones-you'll see the fishing line clearer
Only in plan 9 ! will i still see tor johnson hitting the door frame ? or the policemen moving and shaking graves ? or all the continuity mistakes ? or the pilots in the make shift cockpit ?
more importantly, will i still see
I watched a few ed wood's, some have been getting pretty old.
NSFW. I felt sorry for ed wood, bela, and most of them when you know what took place. Still a nice tip of the hat from Tim burton.
edit funny thing is that Lugosi turned downed frankenstein because he didn't have any dialogue.
Well, almost. If Sinbad were there, it’d be perfect
It was the best Monster movie ever. The talking parts were a little ridiculous, but I couldn’t have cared less. I remember the days when they played the Kong movies on Thanksgiving and the Godzilla movies all day Friday.
I loved these movies as a kid, but the new stuff like this comes at you pretty fast.
Would it be okay for my 6-year-old, or would it scare the crap out of her?
Looking forward to this one. Love Godzilla, love King Kong, what's to dislike?
Depends on the kid. I wouldn’t have thrown this at my oldest or middle kid at 6. No way. My youngest? Wouldn’t have been an issue. She’d have probably laughed at it.
Her favorite movie is Die Hard. I’m thinking she’d be fine.
I really enjoyed it, far more than the recent Godzilla: King Of The Monsters or—gag— Kong: Skull Island. Not quite up to my personal favorite, the deeply and unexpectedly weird Shin Godzilla from 2017, but it was a lotta fun. I did not expect it to be so biased toward Kong, but I suppose he is more "relatable" to most viewers.
You can actually rent movie theaters and supply your own Blu-ray to screen. It's cheap enough if you have six friends.
