I wish they meant something more substantial to the plot, but I really like Bernie and Josh's interactions. They're kinda funny for the most part. There is one line I didn't like, and it's the "and sober" line after Josh pores the whiskey into the computer. It's the weakest line that Bernie has, and unfortunately Brian Tyree Henry just couldn't save that line. It stuck out like a sore thumb to me each time. Madison wasn't given much to do as a character, but at least she was independent and somewhat more interesting than in GKOTM. With more to do, she would have been far better.
I'm kind of a fan of the conspiracy theorist podcast host thing. Going against a big cybernetics company. I'm not sure if that was meant to have real-world implications or significance, if it was planned or inadvertent, but it's kinda interesting to see.
It’s nuanced things for me, personally. I get a kick out of ‘dumb sh!t’ (ironically enough) like the quick shot of Josh Valentine’s cheap facial expression just as Apex security has him at gunpoint after discovering Ghidorah’s skull; the sheer look of utter pathetic desperation in Josh’s face where he pleads to Bernie the extent of his hacking/pirating skills; the ‘contrived’ scene where “MechaGodzilla” is coined; and of course, when #10 is released into MG’s arena and we see Bernie’s initial leaping reaction to the giant SkullCrawler — honestly to me, the funniest thing right now since watching.
Some of the other characters have their moments. Jia and Dr. Lind have some of course (namely both ‘coward’ scenes). Dr. Ilene Andrews has a moment (personal favorite) when she gestures for Jia to get on into the jeep at the beginning of the movie in the biodome — at that moment she has this sort of goofy-looking funny face; not unlike (in spirit) Brie Larson’s ‘moment’ in Kong: Skull Island when she’s trying to evade the SkullCrawler and she has the infamous expression. I found these to be endearing also.
