Godzilla (2014) - MONARCH: Legacy of Monstser - RECAP INTRODUCTION - www.skiptvads.blog

This post is a mix of things, first I got curious about all three movies that link to MONARCH TV series

  • Kong: Skull Island
  • Godzilla (2014)
  • Godzilla: King of the Monsters

By the time I made my first post about this new Monsterverse TV series I had only watch the latest Godzilla movie, Godzilla: King of the Monsters and it was very good in my opinion for the time, when I say for the time I mean there was not much interest on Godzilla and I would say it was one of the only movies when Godzilla and other monsters/titans show full body, clear image, during daylight because let me tell you this is the love and hate relationship with this movie, IT FUCKING SUX when it comes to showing Godzilla and the two other monsters in it that no body knew what the hell they were, my hope is that MONARCH make things right bringing a good story, few side stories from secondary characters and clear full body scenes from the monsters with details about from where the hell they come from and what type or category of monsters they are.

I could not post images of some of the scenes because they were dark as hell, even with my vr setup I had a hard time in a few occasions to identify the monsters and tell what was going on, I didn’t watch the movie because I’m a Godzilla fan, well I think I’m becoming one now; mainly watch this movie and the others because MONARCH is suppose to tie them up all together and that to me is interesting.

IMDB: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0831387/
RottenTomatoes: https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/godzilla_2014
Platform: Amazon

It’s interesting to see Tomatometer higher than the audience score, usually is the other way since the Tomatometer reviews are more harsh and professional meaning they might find and criticize a few things regular viewers like me wont, to me it was a 6.5/10, so I agree with a 66% or acceptance, problem with audience score is that there is always someone who shits on the score giving a 1/10 to that screw everything up for the average ratio, between 6 and 7 is fine but no more than that.

It feels very refreshing to watch this movie after watching a few episodes of MONARCH since this are the very same images and this is episode two, when they try to use a bomb to lure in Godzilla, at first the deal was to bring him close to the shore to study him, proof it exist but the ARMY decided to destroy it, detonating the bomb when it was close enough, after all they were funding MONARCH but no body expected Godzilla would survive the explosion absorbing all radiation so making the TV Series match exact scenes of the different movies is very cool and what everyone was expecting I think.

The movie starts with Dr. Ishiro Serizawa and Vivienne Graham, at first I confuse Ishiro with Hiroshi from the TV series but they are not the same person, Ishiro was way before Hiroshi although the MONARCH founders do not appear on this movie, Dr. Keiko and Bill Randa, see where I’m going with this post, I’ll be making reference to both the TV Series and the Movie like telling you watch the movies before the TV series.

Ishiro and Vivienne got a call from something they have found on a mine, inside a cave there was what look like a cocoon, there were two of them; but one of them was recently open and what ever came out of it left a huge hole on the side of mountain and a long trace, look like it either took off or got into the ocean, all this inside a way bigger skeleton probably the thing that put them there, Dr. Ishiro confirm it has to be a titan since there was a trace of radiation, second cocoon was inactive so they took it and put it a warehouse with other nuclear waste, stupid idea.

Next there was the couple of Joe Brody and his wife Sandra Brody who had kid name Ford, latter on Ford turns into a bad ass, Joe and Sandra work at a nuclear plant in Japan, sensors at the plant has detected some signal, they think its an earthquake but its not, this signal is important to the story because is what so far everyone recognize as the first indication that Godzilla might show up, what they call the signal of G day.

The Brody’s story is one of the cool things about the movie, they give it proper continuation and closure, when Joe detected this signal it was too late, the titan was already getting closer and the target was the nuclear plant, it was after the reactor, Sandra was a technician at the plant and in this case she was in charge to check there was no breach, again too late, worst part is that Joe had to close the door on her to avoid all that radiation to come up and watch her die, same time young Ford had to watch the nuclear plant collapse very close from school.

Ford latter on gets into the army, went on his first tour, had a wife and a kid, I feel Elizabeth Olsen aka Wanda Maximoff aka Scarlett Witch, mf hottest women on the MCU, could had a better part on this movie, she is a great actress in my opinion, she was Ford’s wife.

After the accident in Japan where Joe’s wife died he got obsess with the what and why it happen, they were taken out of Japan with the excuse that it was not safe because of the radiation, several times got arrested for coming back and Ford had to take care of him but he agree to go back one last time to help his father finish this, no surprise to Joe there was no radiation, it was all a lie, he also found old 3.5 inch disks, those things are so fragile; kept saying in there was all his data, come on by the time he came back and the bad environment those disks were trash.

For years after the attack the titan stay in a cocoon stage, so probably when it escape the island it didn’t had wings that’s why it left a trace on the ground and after it absorb all the radiation at the plant started his evolution.

Dr. Ishiro had a program where they were studding the cocoon, the reason MONARCH exist is not to kill this monsters but to study them because there is way more to know about them, specially where they come from, Joe and Ford got arrested at the base and while all this happen the monster got out of the cocoon and escapes but Joe got hit by a crane in the process and latter on dies when he was taken out of the island.

Here is when things start to get salty, fucking monsters are always on a very dark scenario, it was just a few times that I could get a proper screenshot of the monsters.

Military gets involve when the monster at Japan got out so they were tracking it down, they were not the only ones, Godzilla was also tracking down this monster so they met each other at sea where Ishiro insisted the Marine to leave Godzilla alone and let them fight, in the process cities would be destroy.

In fact the bat-type monster attack Hawaii in the process of meeting with the female monster of the same specie, it was a mess all scenes were so dark, to give you an example this were probably the only clear shots from the monsters I could get from this fight scene, most of the fight scene become irrelevant as you cant see shit but then there were few moments specially from Godzilla that compensate things so imagine the roller coaster of WTF WHY SO DARK, CANT SEE SHIT!! and then HELL YEAH GODZILLA IS A BEAST!!!

Remember how I mention it was stupid to put the second cocoon next to nuclear waste? fact it ate all the fucking nuclear waste absorbing radiation and getting huge stupid size to the moment the make bat monster was fully grown, this second monster escapes from the warehouse inside a mountain in Las Vegas to now meet with the male, destination San Francisco.

This are the scenes that I mention that compensate, form the monsters, it look like it was on porpuse, like it was a budget thing, first was the attack on Hawaii that was dark as fuck, couldn’t see a thing on top was at night, then when they arrive San Francisco everything was grey including the bay area like it was about to rain, I get it that when they started to move inside the city there was a lot of dust in the air from all the buildings that were getting destroy so is the part of the movie that compensate all the other dark scenes, although it is about to get WORST.

This is another killer shot, army send out soldiers to disarm a bomb that they were going to use against the monsters but its now on the city after the male bat got it, that’s the scene where it dive into the ocean grabbing the bomb from one of the army ship, soldiers jump from a plane with red flares, clouds of dust form staying below the sky so there was a air gap and all the red lines falling from the sky it was sick, another point for the movie, its going to fucking need it.

WHAT IN THE FUCKING HELL, this is when you end the movie so pissed off at it, the entire fight scene at San Francisco was so dark, sometimes gray some times just dark but in any case you could not fully seem them fight, obviously Godzilla kills both of the other monsters but as you can see on the image above before he killed the female Godzilla grab her by the head and shoot radioactive blue flames inside it melting the rest of the monster ripping its head off, bad ass ten seconds but over all very very very crappy fight scenes in my opinion.

Godzilla (2014) - MONARCH: Legacy of Monstser - RECAP - CONCLUSION - www.skiptvads.blog

If I had to split the movie into two parts, I could say that 50% of the movie was very cool with the clear monster shots, the soldiers falling from the sky, Joe quest to find out what really happen at the nuclear plant was very interesting, if you have watch MONARCH you would notice that it does makes sense with the Movies, there is continuation so for me it was not that bad because this movie was informative and entertaining but if MONARCH didn’t exist and I only watch it or say went to the movies I would end thinking that all Godzilla movie sux and its piece of shit, it is not but it would be my first reaction probably after half of the movie was dark

Monarch: Legacy of Monsters - Aftermath - Season 01 - Episode 01 -RECAP INTRODUCTION - www.skiptvads.blog

Monarch Legacy of Monsters is turning to be a great TV series with three episodes already in, the series doesn’t look full of promises without putting up a show, I have try to cover the movies that connect to the series and also put up a post about the trailer and something that I mention that is key for me when watching any type of content that goes around a certain monster is the monster itself, in the past movies tend to just show parts of the monster and small scenes of it compare to the rest of the story and I was afraid this might be the case but its not, on the first episode we see one fight and two attacks from all different type and size of monsters, along with this a side story of a disappear man who have two families without each other knowing, this man has a secret life that none of his two families know of but it was necessary to keep them protected.

The series is not perfect, there are a few characters that I don’t like too much but I have come to the conclusion that some times that’s how it is suppose to be, when an actor makes you feel certain way because of his/her character and not because of their acting itself then this means its working and in this case it’s Kate and Kentaro, both daughter and son of the disappeared Hiroshi Randa who has been studying all this monsters, this too kids some times get my nerves, both annoying and always arguing like teenagers.

Monarch so far does a great job a resembling to the predecessor movies Skull Island, Godzilla (2014) and we still haven’t seen much related to King of the Monsters and that’s fine because I think when the series get to that point its show time, full blown Goji ready to destroy.

Episode one opens up strong with Bill Randa at Skull Island, this was either a part of the original movie that was not shown or a second tour to the island, he is recording himself, asking someone to forgive him but I’m not sure who is he referring too although it will be useful for the future in the series. Bill is running away from a giant spider that was seen on the Skull Island movie but this time it is trying to eat him probably or at least kill him and when he is at a dead end on a cliff throws a bag with his recordings to the ocean, right after that another monster shows up, giant Crab stands up from the ground to fight the spider and Bill gets away, I think this was a perfect opening scene, you got a monster fight, one monster that was never seen and brings a characters from the monster verse movies.

As any other first episode its time to present all different main characters and provide context, meaning to their stories, on the image above Kate, a women who her father “died” or disappear, at this point she and her mom are not sure what happen, looking for answers she goes to Tokyo after finding a set of keys to an apartment and probably documentation that tells her about her father apartment in Tokyo.

OG Godzilla story starts in Japan so what a great detail to the series without trying to make it so American, the story at first feels like there is a lot going on and you just got drop in the middle, trying to figure out who is who and what is what but its not complicated, Godzilla at this point in time has appear a few times and already attack San Francisco in the US, that’s reference to Godzilla (2014), Japan is now heavily loaded with weapons against a possible attack, would be ridiculous seen that many missile turrets around the city.

Kate gets to her fathers apartment to figure out he had a second wife and son that no body in the US knew about, there is confusion all over the scene but this is the part that annoys me, how Kate and Kentaro fight about their father, both in a position that one of the is lying instead of trying to figure things out.

Kentaro and his mother Emiko cools down but Kate is just a spoiled brat and kept acting like a bitch about her father cheating trying to make Kentaro and Emiko like he is a bastard, that sux and is very shitty from her. Emiko is a sweet women, very patient, before Kate left to the airport an alarm sound off, possible Godzilla attack and everyone ran into the subterranean, Kentaro and Emiko help Kate to cool down and at that moment when she felt vulnerable and supported my Emiko she cools down and lower her guard.

To clear things out and find out exactly what their father was up to, Kentaro takes Kate to his father office, where they kept arguing because Kate is still bitching about her father secret life, they found a safe in the wall with a bunch of recordings and there is when the adventure to figure out what their father work with and potentially what happen to him but they need help to read all this very old data.

May manage to read the data that is encrypted, but it seems that part of the encryption work against a remote server that authenticates or decompress the data some how, because the minute she starts reading all this data an alarm is set off at Monarch that gets to Tim who work for Monarch and is very interested to know who is working with this documents that seem to be lost and they want them back badly.

Same as Godzilla all this monsters feed from radiation, they are after a location that has high radiation readings that come and goo like there is a radioactive material but something is feeding from it creating all this peak readings, they get to what seems to be an old power plant that must had a core and they did find what they were looking for, MUTO (Massive Unidentified Terrestrial Organism) a term they came up with for some of this monsters, a category.

This is where the episodes gets intense, Keiko was very talented and brave, she volunteer to go down where all this glowing eggs are to take genetic samples, Lee seem to be in charge of their security that Keiko and Bill doesn’t seem to care that much , their passion for the science blinds their judgement exposing them to high risk specially Keiko. Lee and Keiko go down but the place seem to be very unstable and after just a few minutes of walking the surface where the eggs are the place start to crumble and go down, I have a theory that what ever monster that lay down the eggs felt them and was coming making the place shake, monsters that look like insects, look like cockroach, start to run towards Lee and Keiko, that’s how we get to the cover image were Keiko is trying to climb back but the insects got to her, Bill was pulling her up but could not hold the rope, there was too much weight after the insects got her and she falls down.

Monarch: Legacy of Monsters - Aftermath - Season 01 - Episode 01 -RECAP CONCLUSION - www.skiptvads.blog

Working with two time lines gives the series the ability to recreate multiple scenes that sparks that rush of dopamine and then slow things down again, in the case of episode one you have attack at Skull Island with Bill running for his life, the Godzilla attack in San Francisco and at the end the scene where all this insects end up killing Keiko, well I assume she is dead. My point is that its not a boring constant story trying to only figure things out as they go, allowing the series to always have two or three action scenes per episode, at least that’s my expectation.

So far as I mention above the monsters scenes have been as expected, nothing ridiculous, they are not going to give you a big Godzilla fight on the first episodes, probably we get one or even two big fights on season one but so far so good in that department, the story behind the disappearance of Hiroshi seems very interesting also making sense with the movies that back it up, I give episode one a 8/10 because it was very entertaining and had bits of all the movies and the story behind them but this series is not GOT or The Rings of Power so giving it a 10 is very hard for me, Monarch is delivering everything I expected from it and I’m glad not everything was shown on the trailer.

Tv Series I’ll be watching on November

As I’m trying to write other content than recaps of TV Series episodes here some info about the TV Series I’m looking for on November, some of them just started and others about to, there are a few in particular that I’m excited about like MONARCH that I recently made a post about the trailer and the first movie related to the TV Series, Kong: Skull Island (2017); same goes for For All Man Kind, I remember this was the series that got me to love most of the content that Apple TV+ puts out, I dare to say that over 80% of their content is good, For All Man Kind ends on Season 4 since some of the characters are presented as very old and some others are not even in NASA anymore or any other space program, the show adds new characters too on Season 4. From this six series that I mention there is one a Mini Series I’m a bit skeptical and that’s the Anderson Silva mini series, I think it’s going to be a kind of documentary style and not exactly as a drama/fight TV series, its going to be on Paramount so I don’t expect it to be trash, and last but still excited about it since I’m just a casual and very commercial Anime viewer I got on my radar Onimusha, an adaptation of the game, from what I have read online this is a classic with a big fan base behind that probably going to think the series is trash as most of 90% game adaptations out there, not necessarily that they are trash but most doesn’t stick to the story at 100%.

Today I give out my personal ignorant opinion as a regular viewer, I’m not or pretend to be an expert or critic, I’m just giving out my opinion of what I see without judging who made it or what is is based on, for me TV and Movies are just media for entertainment and not educational.

Onimusha
IMDB: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt22301234/
Air: November, 2, 2023

From what I have seen online without spoiling anything from the show I have to say if you play the game the story is inconsistent compare to the original, for me this is something it doesnt bother anymore and the reason for this is because anything that shows up on TV is mainly to MAKE MONEY, it doesn’t matter if its a Movie, Tv Series, unless it is presented as a Documentary do not expect things to match exactly to every single scene, this is something I have been thinking about writing a post because it happens so often and to be honest I think there is market for this for example people that have never play the game but the story is so good it can be “adapted” usually this means improve or manipulate to appeal for this market who would eventually buy the game who knows.

Im a sucker for anything Capcom most things they touch become gold, on top of that Onimusha as the game is based on a swordsman who always look tired like he is about to retire, he is giving an ancient gaunlet that he use to lock down the souls of demons he start to put away but with every soul he locks down the darkness starts to take over him, the fight scenes remind me a lot of Rourouni Kenshin that recently got a new version, cant wait to watch it on VR (SBS).

“You are a law men or outlaw” bit of both… it was about time David Oyelowo get his own TV Series, this guy was great on Silo, Interstellar, Jack Reacher, not the first time he turns out to be the one in charge of the law, I like a good Gun Man story during the times of the Wild West in this case Bass Reeves was on the side of the law, last similar TV series I saw was Billy The Kid that is actually on its second season, I missed this blog post for October thats why I havent mention it, another TV Series based this time on a true story since Bass Reeves was one of the first Black deputy US Marshal in American history, this based on what I have found online, he was most likely trying to do his best job during times he had everything against him including the system itself but he was one of the best man hunters (fugitives/outlaws) for three decades, one of the most deadly men in the frontier.

Air: November, 10, 2023

If you havent seen the first three series I suggest you fucking do, this is one of my favorites series hands down, every single series is great, the story, the action, there is shooting in the MOON, astronauts stay months inside a tiny room at the moon and all because they are pushing to be the first to get to the Moon, then to Mars and now they are building the first sustainable colony at Mars, bringing people from Earth who had regular jobs to help build the infrastructure on Mars but now they found a gigantic metorite with an insane amount of metal, more than it has been mine in the entire history of mankind, now they fighting for it, China, Russia, NASA, they are all going for it, all this happen in a paralell world as none of the story is based on real events, its the vision of what would have happen of probably NASA had done everything what Space X is doing now but years ago, not going to get into that topic but this is a great Space TV Series.

A Murder at the End of the World
IMDB: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt15227418/
Air: November, 14, 2023

This is a drama that I dont really know what to expect out of it but what got me is that it happens literally at the end of the world in the middle of nothing just mountains and ice all over the place, this series reminds me a lot to The Menu and Andy the character by Clive Owen gives me the same impression as Ralph Fiennes the Chef on The Menu movie. From what I can tell from the trailer there is this place looks like a hotel for a retire, probably no internet, no cell phone just to rest and disconnect from the world but its a setup and Darby the main character of the series a women probably on her 25 – 30 is in the middle and tries to survive, this is a mini series with seven chapters and start with the first two on November 14, nothing really special about it but the production seems good based on the trailer, has a good cast too with Alice Braga, Clive Owen, Edoardo Ballerini, few familiar faces.

Anderson Spider Silva
IMDB: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt14926832/
Air: November, 16, 2023

In Brazil MMA is a HUGE deal, on his prime Anderson Silva was a fucking beast, I remember some of his fights against Forrest Griffin, Vitor Belfort, Dan Henderson, he was so smooth and like to trash talk but at some point in time he had defend so many times his UFC World Tittle that it was like watching Max Verstappen win a race, you knew he was going to win. From what I can tell this is a mini series about how he became that great fighter, his struggles in Brazil growing up probably been bully by other guys until one day he discover that love for fighting, Anderon Silva was insane on the floor, trying to take him down was suicide mission because he would make sure you tap out, on the series it goes from when he was a kid to when he became the big star he is, sometimes he was a bit wild on his personal life but at one point in time he was at the top of the world so who could blame him, I love Anderson Silva, one of my favorite MMA fighters, this is going to be a great watch but don’t expect any Van Damme shit fighting making unreal moves.

MONARCH is a no brainier for me, on top of that very recent there was a Godzilla movie, Godzilla Minus One at Japan, turn out to be a success based on critics opinion I’m jet to see it, I’m not a movie guy but the end of the year is closing strong even after the Hollywood Strike. The Monsterverse has never make it to TV and that is what this TV Series is about, collecting all that data spread across four movies and then develop the MONARCH story more than it already is, this is no mini series so we are going to get plenty of episodes, season one kicks in with ten episodes, from the start based on the first scene that was released past week we get a fight between a giant crap and a spider what we probably wont get is fights between the main monsters like Godzilla but that’s OK, with ten episodes I think its enough to develop the MONARCH story and have other monsters show up to destroy cities or after Godzilla, very excited about this one too.

I’m going to try to post the next day on some this series, MONARCH and For All Mankind are my two favorites out of this list but knowing me this will take some effort since some times I get busy at work or at home, when that happens I tend to not have enough patience to sit down and write content, I have been thinking on quitting my 8-5 one day but not now since I still need that income for certain plans, may be next year around this time I will reconsider since I really like writing content and if I could have the time to create videos that would be great too, I see some guys in Hive that post twice a day and on top comment others people post and are very active in Threads, all I can think is how the fuck they have the time but most likely they don’t have an 8-5, I’m not miserable but also not enjoy having the 8-5 I have at the moment, I though this post was going to be short but me talking about my job doesn’t help that much so I hope one day I might have the option to not have an 8-5 and still move on with projects without having to worry about my finances.

Kong: Skull Island (2017) - MONSTER VERSE RECAP INTRODUCTION - www.skiptvads.blog

Ever since I made that post about the upcoming Monarch: Legacy of Monsters (2023) TV Series I got interested on finding out the start of MONARCH and the chronology of the movies, there are other stories made up from multiple movies but they are just too big for me to learn everything from the start, it is just too much time so this seems smaller and about to kick off with its first TV Series based on a series of movies. The first movie that started things was Kong: Skull Island (2017) where Bill Randa finally find all this monsters he has been talking about for years, but he was not the first man from a modern society to discover the island after Hank Marlow a USA pilot from World War II crash there and had his first encounter with the guardian of the island, Kong.

At first I really thought I was going to be disappointed by this movie since the score on sites like IMDB was very low with only a 6.7/10 but when I start to go through the reviews most of them were positive, lots of 7+ reviews but it was only a few bastards that gave the movie a 2 or 3 complaining about the story that they probably didn’t that much attention to, others complaining about how the concept about Kong was completely change from this giant ape who normally terrorize cities to now been the guardian of the island. I think MONARCH made a favor to Kong bringing it into the MONSTER VERSE, no body cares about movies based on the same concept over and over, what they were trying to do is build up the foundation to something bigger that now days will turn into a TV Series potentially extending the story of all this monsters into something different and bigger.

The Vietnam war is about to be over and all troops send back home, Bill Randal currently in charge of MONARCH knows that the program can be shut down at any moment because so far they have found nothing and when the war ends things are going to rapidly change politically, he feels its now or never go make a discovery and prove the monsters he and his assistant Houston Brooks have been speculating about do exist so they talk to Senator Willis, ask him for one last chance to send them on an expedition to Skull Island, a place that has not been explore yet with many stories about boats disappearing, mysterious bombing like they were trying to kill something but its all speculation, luckily there is already an expedition to Skull Island and Bill and Houston knew about, LANDSAT a program to discover and explore the Earth is sending a team to Skull Island so MONARCH was able to piggy back after Senator Willis approval. A common question that came up was WHY THE FUCK ITS NOT BEEN EXPLORE? the reason is because its surrounded by a perpetual storm system like God doesn’t want anyone else inside the island.

Bill ask for a military escort, he knows if they find something on that island only military power can help them to get out alive, that’s when one of my favorite characters comes in by the hand of Samuel Jackson, Colonel Preston Packard who doesn’t want to leave the war, he is that soldier who feels there is nothing else at home that matters and he just want to keep pushing not to mention that they are “abandoning” the war but that’s a total different topic. Colonel Packard is in charge to take LANDSAT and MONARCH to Skull Island and provide protection so they can explore it and come back home.

As secondarily characters there are soldiers under Packard wing, most pilots, there is Cole, Slivko, Reles and Chapman all this pilots will follow Packard orders at all times, that was at first, until Packard obsession gets them close enough to death.

Chapman a pilot who was flying the helicopter with the most gun power is played by Toby Kebbell who is on For All Man Kind new season, he did very well on this movie although his part was very small, this is Packard’s first obsession to find Chapman when his helicopter goes down after an attack but not necesarly because he wants to safe Chapman, Packard was really after all the armament on Chapman’s helicopter.

Last duet of the story are James Conrad and Mason Weaver, Conrad the man in charge to guide them through the island he is famous for exploring inhabitable places and getting out alive so Bill and Houston look for him, they knew it would be expensive and they running low on money but if they want the best chances to get out alive Conrad is the guy to go with, as a bonus we get Mason Weaver who is going to play the pretty lady on the movie, photographer who actually goes to cover the LANDSAT expedition but she knows there is something else cooking besides the LANDSAT expedition but none of them have a clue of what they going to find on Skull Island.

There is one detail that I didn’t like and that was the amount of Choppers on the first shots when they get to the Island, there was only one ship that look like it can hold at best five to seven of them but when they start flying towards the Island looks like they were ten of them, also when already in the island they started to drop some small bombs to map out the surface because of the seismic waves.

After they start dropping bombs this obviously disturb nature, you got the noise, the impact on earth, animals going wild running scared and this is when big dawg Kong shows up for the first time on the movie, I really like how they gave it this classic Vietnam war scenery with the sun going down and the sky orange but in some cases it was hard to see although I still think it look great, Kong itself was very well design in my opinion but it look small, latter on during the movie it is mention that he is still small, he is probably on his teens, point is that he got mad as fuck for all the bombing and shuts down all the choppers one by one this made him enemy number one to Colonel Packard, on this movie Kong is the protector of the Island, he is not a predator he protect humans and animals mainly for the real predators, GIANT LIZARDS!!

After Kong shuts them down Packard had a little chat with Bill who then told him why they were there, what is MONARCH, he is not there to explore the land, he is there to find monsters and bring proof back because he believes there are way more monsters that have not been discover and they need to prepare, bring the cavalry, on the island they had many encounter with huge animals, from what looks like a giant Buffalo, spiders, insects, its like Australia x100.

The survivors of the attack start exploring looking for shelter and how to get out of the island, the group split in two, you got Packard and his soldiers looking for Chapman and all that fire power and then there is Conrad leading the other group (MONARCH and LANDSAT) until they found Hank Marlow, the guy I mention crash the island many years ago during WW II, he has been living there for twenty eight years waiting to be rescue without luck until now when Bill and the rest arrive but this was not necessary a good thing for the island. Hank has been living with natives of the island and gave the guys a tour and had a short Q&A with them so they know whats the deal of the island, who is Kong to them and where not to go.

I don’t like to spoil the cool scenes so I’m just going to mention that there was NO LACK at all of fight scenes between humans and monsters and monster against monsters, you got flying monsters, you got giant baby lizard and then you got big mama lizard against Kong in the final fight, nothing was left to the imagination wondering of why things happen or what if, none of that bullshit, its true that we don’t know yet from where all this monsters are coming but Houston did mention that his planet is not theirs, it belongs to this monsters and it was just a matter of time before they take it back, that’s one of the reasons why MONARCH exist to prevent all this events.

This was for sure the beginning of MONARCH, on this movie we only get that a man called Harry Truman funded MONARCH in 1946 but that’s all we got from this movie, after credits there is a scene where Houston give more details to Conrad and Weaver of who are they facing but that’s it, but he does show them some pictures of cave explorations and images on the walls of this caves that represent many of the different titans like Godzilla.

FATAL ATTRACTION S01E02 CONCLUSION - www.skiptvads.blog

The reason to watching this movie was to find out more about MONARCH, I know I can go and read the MONARCH Fandom but that is not what I want, I want to have the same perspective of any other viewer once MONARCH: Legacy of the Monsters TV Show starts and that is the reference to the movies themself, my next movie to watch is Godzilla (2014) that is heavy shown on the first trailer for the tv series.

Kong Skull of Island as a Monster or Titans because when you say monster most people think about demons probably but this case its titans or MUTOS as MONARCH describe, this movie did a great job, the CGI was very good nothing to criticize also the amount of monsters that appear on the movie is good enough since it was not only Kong, on the movie appear seven monster animals in total that I can remember so it was not only about Kong, there is even an extra small fight between Kong and a Giant squid that felt like a bonus fight. In terms of the cast it had a good amount of known actors who also did a good job at bringing all this characters alive, I don’t feel anything was fake or over the top neither. The only thing that I would do different is not killing Bill on this movie because I think he was a leader for MONARCH and finally when they get all proof they need to show he was right about all this monsters he gets killed, I don’t him been alive would change the end/meaning of the movie but just a small detail that I would prefer.

Referring to MONARCH itself this is the movie that opens the door to explore what they have discover so far, from here its all about looking for all those other monsters out there, try to understand them, protect from them and even dominate or kill them depending on how dangerous they are, MONARCH already knows there are more out there and its a matter of time before they claim Earth back.

Monarch: Legacy of Monsters (2023) INTRODUCTION - www.skiptvads.blog

Technology is making possible for studios to create all this shows that I would only dream off, I was born in the 80’s a generation that have probably have seen the most advance in technology from phone land lines to smart phones, from manual special effects to now AI generated scenes.

I was never a fan of monsters movies because I had this bad impression from Godzilla (1998), I remember everyone had high hopes on this movie but eventually it was so dark and very few times Godzilla appear full body, all this recent advance in tech lead to some of the best Godzilla movies ever in terms of how the monsters look example Godzilla (2014) and Godzilla: King of The Monsters (2019) two of my favorite Monster after my number one monster movie Cloverfield (2008). After many years of not watching this type of Monster Titan movies or in terms of Monarch language MUTOS (Massive Unidentified Terrestrial Organism) Cloverfield pick my interest because of how the movie was film in First Person so the monster itself was more of a mistery but for some reason got me interested enough so I gave a chance to Godzilla (2014) end up liking it and the watch the 2019 movie, end up loving and wanted more of what is now days called the Monster Verse, as always I don’t want to pretend I’m an expert but took some time to read about Monarch and the Godzilla chronology.

Monarch: Legacy of Monsters (2023) – TRAILER OPINION – www.skiptvads.blog

That order is how I remember things work out for me from bad to great impression of Monsters movies, so far the only one I’m not that excited are Kong Movies, mostly because they are all the same but now that they making a series out of the movies it intrigue me to watch Godzilla vs Kongo (2021) and Kong: Skull Island (2017) since from my understanding they are related to the upcoming TV Series too.

www.skiptvads.blog - tv series divider

Trailers at times might be either misinterpret ended or misleading, this TV Show wont be the exception as most people will want to watch Godzilla fighting from the first episode and I even doubt we will see it on the first episode. Apple TV had an early release and the embargo just ended so first comments without reaction or spoilers are coming up. From what I have seen on the trailers and what has been said its going to be very different than what everyone is expecting, this series at least season one will be about Monarch itself, from how it started, what happen in San Francisco on the 2014 movie to the 2019 movie so more than one time line going back and forward.

I really like how at least Godzilla itself looks but I think the 2019 movie was the final proof that tech is there to make this cool monsters come alive with their full blown powers. As any other story adapted to TV it wont be straight up close to say the “canonical” version of the story since they have to include the drama and sell the product, it is not to be a nerd out COJI TV Series but I’m sure will give more details of how everything started and might even turn into what UMBRELLA was to Resident Evil was the entire structure for most of the movies, everything happen around the corporation, similar might be with MONARCH, make the TV series relate the movies is what most viewers will want but but that could be hard to do for all Godzilla movies since there are so many with different Godzilla and some of the more traditional to the original story so even if they do manage to get the TV series close to a group set of this movies there will always be a few things that wont match as I mention because of all the Godzilla versions through the years.

Above a comparison of different Godzilla versions through the years, some of them are similar but things like legs, chest, arm length, back arch are very different between them.

From what I can tell the series will start with character Keiko, a women who was there at San Francisco 2014 when the Godzilla attack happen, she lost her father so the movie will work with probably different time lines going back and forward, to connect dots you will have to pay attention to details, it looks like her father was always working for MONARCH but she has no clue what is was so after he died she started to investigate what is this corporation.

Monarch: Legacy of Monsters (2023) TRAILER CONCLUSION - www.skiptvads.blog

This is just a trailer so the main target is to get people all hype about it but I expect the first season to be very slow with flash backs from others movies and scenes related to that timeline probably scenes that never make it to the movies, if we see Godzilla fighting twice is a win because if its going into every episode then I don’t see it going more than two seasons and that will suck although it all depends if viewers stay interested, from what I have read and seen online from the director, on an interview he mention how the TV Series is trying to create a story around all the movies, essentially tell how MONARCH start to discover all this monsters give more details about them and probably not let things just to the imagination, how they are born, how they stay hidden and probably most important the reason for the attacks, all this keeping the spectacle the big show of Godzilla fights but also make it interesting at the people around MONARCH.

First episode will air on November 17, 2023

The main reason for this post is to actually give you my bad experience with this type Monster movies and how have been getting better through the years thanks to technology and better story, but mostly it is wise to keep expectation at a safe level with this type of content.
