Fury Road proved that you can make great cinema without much attention to plot.

I saw Godzilla vs Kong in the theater. It was worth it.

I demand another Godzilla film.
There will be another. It all hinged on how Godzilla vs Kong did and it did great at both the box office and HBO.

They actually filmed Godzilla: King of the Monsters and Godzilla vs Kong back to back, and then King of the Monsters severely under-performed (Godzilla and Kong: Skull Island did 530 and 570 million respectively; KOTM did 386 million). But Godzilla vs Kong did 470 million at the box office and was the most popular thing on HBO Max so they immediately greenlit more movies.

KOTM was not as good as it could have been. Really would have preferred to see Godzilla fight more of the Titans but their existence and him not defeating all of them is just fodder for more films and I am ok with that.

Definitely want to see a legit big G and Mothra team up.

KOTM had the worst human characters in the franchise and the least visible action sequences.

The first two movies had tolerable human casts. They still mostly just got in the way of the monster fights but they weren't a chore to watch like they were in the latter two.

Spoilers are out. Sounds like shit.

Spoiler:

  • 60 years have passed since the end of the War with the machines.
  • Niobe is still alive and aged-up, taking Morpheus' place as a leader.
  • Machines and Humans work together in many cases.
  • Neo is alive in the Matrix and is a video game developer. He developed a trilogy of videogames for Warner Bros. (yes I know) called "The Matrix."
  • Neo does not remember his life as The One, but has PTSD and flashbacks from the events of the first three films.
  • Neil Patrick Harris plays Neo's therapist.
  • Harris' character is named "The Analyst", who was instrumental in bringing humans and machines together.
  • Jessica Henrick's character is named "Bugs."
  • In the opening scene of the film, Bugs is being chased by Agents.
  • Yahya Abdul-Mateen plays a young Morpheus. The real Morpheus died of old age; Abdul-Mateen's Morpheus is a bootleg copy created by Neo when he rebooted the Matrix. He is an agent.
  • Neo encounters "Tiffany"/Trinity in a coffee shop. Neither of them remembers eachother.
  • Bugs and Morpheus work together to "ressurect" Neo once more as The One.
  • Agent Smith is back but is played by another actor. He and Neo have a huge action scene in the middle of the film.
  • Smith is in league with The Merovingian.
  • Smith isn't seen again for the rest of the film.
  • Neo regains his memories as The One, but cannot fly, something he struggles with doing throughout the film until the end.
  • There is a standoff between The Analyst and Neo in the coffee shop. Some kind of deal is made; if Trinity walks in and doesn't remember Neo, The Analyst will take control of The Matrix. If Trinity does remember Neo, The Analyst will leave, as he cannot stop Neo at that point.
  • Trinity remembers Neo and a huge action sequence/chase sequence takes place.
  • It's revealed that Neo feeds power from Trinity and vice-versa; Neo cannot fully utilize his powers of The One without Trinity. This is why Neo cannot fly.
  • Trinity gains the powers of The One as well; the last scene is of the two of them flying.
  • It is revealed that Neo is in control of the Matrix, in a huge twist, which is a setup for subsequent films potentially.
