Godzilla: King of the Monsters
We are a bit late in the game with a podcast episode and posting on our take of Godzilla: King of the Monsters, but we still wanted to take a look and give our audience our view and thoughts on this movie. We'll dive into the Godzilla: King of the Monsters' post credit scene, the initial Godzilla: King of the Monsters box office standing, Godzilla: King of the Monsters titan list (it seemed like there were so many!), our Godzilla: King of the Monsters rating and review, and more! (Warning for Spoilers!)
Godzilla: King of the Monsters Movie Cast and Brief Synopsis
Synopsis: Following the events of 2014's film of Godzilla, approximately five years have passed. Monarch, the organization responsible for studying the Titans, are under pressure to start killing and destroying these Titans. That is until a scientist by the name of Dr. Emma Russell has created a machine that can help control the Titans, dubbed as the Orca. However, her actions are somewhat devious as her purpose for releasing them is to bring somewhat of a fall to man and bring balance back to Earth (with the idea of humans being a "virus" to the Earth). Her husband is roped into chasing her down to help prevent the awakening of the Titans. Along the way, the other worldly Titan King Ghidorah is awakened, but this does not bode well for the humans and Godzilla is forced to step in to help stop this powerful creature.
* Kyle Chandler as Dr. Mark Russell
* Chandler plays a scientist who previously worked for the Monsterverse organization Monarch. He has become an animal communication / behavior specialist. Unfortunately, he gets roped into the film's conflict due to his ex-wife being involved in awakening the Titans.
* Vera Farmiga as Dr. Emma Russell
* The audience eventually finds out that Farmiga's character actually kind of turns out to be the main antagonist of the film. She's the one that wants to awaken the Titans that are either unhatched or in some type of stasis. To do this she needed to team up with Charles Dance's character (at the beginning it looks like Dance kidnaps Farmiga). Of course in the end, she regrets her actions, but much damage had already been done.
* Millie Bobby Brown as Madison Russell
* Brown who had previously starred in the popular series Stranger Things, plays the daughter of Chandler and Farmiga's characters. Her character seems like she is torn between which parent to follow, but is ultimately forced to follow her mother most of the film.
* Ken Watanabe as Dr. Ishiro Serizawa
* We here at Force Fed Sci-Fi are a fan of Ken Watanabe and go as far as to bring him up to legendary status, at least in our minds. In any case, Watanabe is one of the few characters that appeared in the 2014 Godzilla movie and his role is reprised in this sequel. We do enjoy his character in both films. Perhaps it's just that he plays a wise and caring character towards the Titans, but I know I had an issue with how much radiation he was exposed to as he sacrificed himself to help heal Godzilla (he should've died early on in that scene as he would not have survived that long).
* Charles Dance as Alan Jonah
