Maybe it was just watching a whole lot of other '90s and '00s Godzilla films around it than made me appreciate the higher quality, better characters and acting, better direction, more creatively staged kaiju portions... yeah, it's been a couple of months and I've come back to this film a few times since then and the glow hasn't worn off. Sure, you can see the seems in a few places (literally and figuratively), but I'm just not as bothered by it now. The GMK Godzilla design has also risen in my estimation, even if he has a comical waddle in some scenes.

And I now concede that to an audience familiar with Japanese mysticism the fantasy aspects would seem a lot more natural. I know many of us find that aspect frustratingly minimal.

Baragon suit actress Rie Ôta felt inclined to actually roar as the monster while performing in the suit. It is the most adorable thing ever.

What is in the photo and then gone? Or was it in a video. Anyway something disappears out in the woods and I can never tell what they are talking about. What went away?

It's three sticks. Kinda sorta a little bit positioned in a way that they possibly vaguely resemble the three horns on top of one of Ghidorah's heads. Maybe. It's really obscure and almost nonsensical. Definitely feels like the beginning of an idea that the filmmakers never went back and fleshed out and formed into an actual cohesive plot line.

All that time wasted pausing and looking at those two shots ...
