Hell, no.
It's called "respect."
I think it goes without saying that a decent discussion isn't possible unless each member of the discussion is able to maintain at least some respect for others' opinions. So, yeah, caring about other people's movie opinions is absolutely a good thing.
I guess but what if there was a person who didn’t like a move and says people who like this movie are dumb or something like should I listen to them and then stop liking the movie.
No. Your opinion is your opinion, their opinion is their opinion. Furthermore, it is more than possible that you can have a favorable opinion on a movie that you still consider to be objectively bad. Again, what other people think should not sway your opinion in the slightest.
If I had a penny for every time I made a fool of myself online... actually, I'd rather not think about it.
Let's go back to just watching and enjoying monster movies.

Is being a Godzilla fan sort of an otaku-y thing?

I would say kaiju fans and anime otaku mostly seem to operate in different circles, but there's definitely some level of overlap and shared culture.

Yeah, but I always feel ashamed if someone makes fun on things I like and it’s pathetic I really don’t wanna be pathetic but I’m stuck with it.

Not very often, now. Shark fin soup usually has them, though.

What if everyone in the Supreme Court and White House suddenly turned into salmon?

Godzilla has a regen like Wolverine, a skin like Luke Cage, a hero aura like Captain America, a strength like Hulk, an unstoppability like Juggernaut, an immortality like Deadpool.

There's a 'God' in Godzilla for a reason...

We have a scheme to replace them should they be unfit for duty
If now? Dangerous really. I do not trust the current legislatures to handle this well, heck it'd mean speaker Johnson becomes president and a republican in the executive anytime in the future is a deathblow to the USA

Query: Are they living salmon? Or dead, but fresh, salmon?

If the former, we should try to figure out how to turn them back. If the latter, maybe we can have a fish fry and or make nice sushi.

Living, but I imagine if they don't get put in water quickly enough they'll be soon dead anyway.

We can technically kind of guess. If it is a push door, a good kick or use of foot would do the trick, probably. If it is a pull door, depends on the door handle. If it is the kind that goes all the way vertically on the door, using your foot to hook into the handle and tug it open somehow might work, but if it isn't then who knows :?:

Do you mean Crippled Avengers a.k.a. The Return of the 5 Deadly Venoms, or am I wrong here?

Basil pesto! Can’t go wrong with a basic meat sauce though.

Man, I hear you. I'm partial to an extremely rich bolognese. But a fresh pesto is like perfect for lunch if you want pasta but don't want to fall asleep.

Also, I recommend trying a geneovese. It's an underappreciated sauce just because most people have never heard of it. It's basically beef and onions that have been cooked down for so long that they become indistinguishable from one another.

Crippled Avengers was the original, Crippled Masters was the cash-in. Contemplate that on the Tree of Woe.

Do you guys ever have, like, same shirtsies with old dudes? You know, where you're like out in public and you've got, say, a hawaiian button up shirt on and some old dude makes eye contact with you, points to his shirt and yours then laughs and says something like, "Heh heh, we're twins!"
