So I see this as an absolute win!
Me too. Even if it's not a good movie, it was made by a guy during lockdown to occupy his kids. If someone can make a cheap monster movie under those conditions, it might inspire more people to try and make films in their basements and backyards. There's a kind of charm behind more amateur, fan driven projects despite the (very obvious) lack in quality. And the giant monster genre lacks a lot of those kinds of films as opposed to say the superhero genre (so many Batman fan films...).
That said, I don't expect to watch it more than once. While I appreciate that kind of fun and effort, I saw the trailer and it definitely looks like the kind of film someone would be able to make if you gave them a hundred bucks and told them to go make a giant ape picture (that had to be a store bought Halloween gorilla costume, my dad used to have a mask just like it). You get what you pay for as they say.
If nothing else some big Konga fan with more technical skills and money to burn might see this and feel challenged to make one better. A man can dream.
Still, now I wonder what a covid lockdown Reptilicus picture would look like... atrocious, but funny.
(Anyways, now I got to rewatch the real Konga again after all this talk.)
