Really are the Netflix ones better? Hm I figured "totally ineffective" being Koichi snapping back into military mode giving mechanical replies and updates. Maybe I should give a proper Netflix one a watch.

Do they all have the same subs or is just Netflix different?

Finally got to see Minus One thanx to it coming to Netflix. I don't live close enough to a theater to walk to one and back, and had no one to take me to the movies when Minus One was in theaters.

What an absolutely amazing film! Has dethroned Godzilla vs MechaGodzilla (1974) as my favourite Godzilla film >^-^<

There are actually two subtitle tracks on Netflix. The theatrical subtitles ("Completely ineffective!") are simply labeled "English", while the other, labeled "English (CC)", is a dubtitle track.

Whatever version of dubbing I watched last night I really thought they did well. If I didn't watch their mouths closely, I wouldn't have felt their performances were out of place. Voice actors did a really good job.

I can’t get into live action dubbing in general. Dubbing in animation is one thing, but there’s always something weird and uncanny to me about dubbing over real people into a different language.

That's exactly how I am. Anime works because it's dubbed either way and you have more leeway with animation accuracy. Dubbing over people is really uncanny to me as well and I can't stand it, outside of older Godzilla dubs I grew up with and I have a nostalgic/personal connection to.

My wife and I watched the film with the dubbed English track first (having seen the film in the theater several times), and were disappointed about a couple of things. The voiceovers often fell short of the emotions of the actors on screen, which we felt left the film feeling a little flat. There were also some phrasings that took away from what was happening in the scene (or foreshadowed the next scene). It’s not terrible, but I think the film is stronger in Japanese with the original subtitles.

I feel like a dub would really ruin the tone of Minus One unless it was somehow done really well.

I swear when I watched it the other night the subs still said "completely ineffective."

However, I did notice they fixed the #1 thing that bothered me from the theatrical subs: they now call the balloons "flotation devices" instead of "levitation" devices.

Hope this helps!

Can someone who is more knowledgeable of physics explain to me how realistic is was that Godzilla's atomic breath would create a kind of blowback that it had, is that something that happens with massive impacts, like a nuclear explosion?

All explosions create a vacuum; small explosions create smaller vacuums and massive explosions create massive vacuums. After detonation there is the shockwave and explosive extension. Once that reaches its peak, the reverse occurs and creates a vacuum and area of compression.

Well, that's pretty fucking terrifying. Hopefully I or any of my loved ones will never have to experience that.

Honest Trailers just gave this movie their treatment. Makes me wonder if HISHE could do it too?

Lots of “reactor” channels on Youtube are also putting in their content with Minus One now. Not sure if the reactions are by way of Monsterverse and the audience saying do Minus One. All the impressions are positive, though it is cringey to see the fake “loud for the sake of loud” types try to inject their fake “loud” energy into it… of note is that all reactions are with subs (probably no dub access until recent).. By virtue of Minus One they then go to Shin.. and so on and thus the Gospel of the King spreads.
In having the global market acknowledge that Minus One is special it would have been nice if Toho just held firm and didnt dub in this case (at least for streams).. Options will be options I suppose

Even if dubs are the lesser experience, it might be argued that they are an accessibility option. I'd rather they have dubs than not. Same does for their older releases in the West.

Dubs are essential. Young kids can't keep up with subs, lots of adults don't want to, people with bad vision might struggle with them, etc. Dubs make media available to a wider audience.
