The back-and-forth portrayal of Godzilla in this film's always amused me. One minute he's supposed to be a menace, the next minute he's supposed to be sympathetic. Who the hell am I supposed to comparateur assurance chat root for? If Mechagodzilla is a good guy, then shouldn't I be glad when he takes out Godzilla? If so, why am I supposed to be happy when Godzilla destroys it and goes back to the sea - free to haunt Japan another day? And why does Miki protest having to aid G-Force in killing Godzilla when she - and everyone else - knows it's the right thing to do? It's ridiculously confusing.
The Biollante theory for SpaceGodzilla's origin is correct.

Watched this for the second time (I believe) last night, and I really enjoyed it. I was surprised at how fast Rodan seemed, and I'm also surprised this Mechagodzilla doesn't get more love. It's pretty badass, and it's theme is fantastic. Also this and Spacegodzilla are the best Heisei Godzilla looks, don't @me.

My biggest issue with the film is the depiction of "Pteranodon". The fact that they find a Pteranodon skeleton and then an egg that is bigger than said skeleton only to assume it's a Pteranodon egg is...a stretch at best. Also they call them flying dinosaurs, but that doesn't surprise me. But I enjoyed it.

Question: are the Mothra twins at the ESP school just supposed to be two girls who work there?

It is mostly Spider-Man themed, but I'd love to talk cosplay, lightsaber commissions, and countless other topics.

Yeah, that was just supposed to be a little in-joke (like having Tadao Takashima taking a jab at Masahiro Takashima in the same scene). I've always found it more distracting than funny.
Tokyo, a smoldering memorial to the unknown, an unknown which at this very moment still prevails and could at any time lash out with its terrible destruction anywhere else in the world.

My friend was convinced it was supposed to be them because the Heisei films try to be so consistent. But thats good to know, I'll definitely pass that along!
