Review Hub - MonsterVerse

The original 1954 Godzilla film introduced the world to the titular monster, going on to be a staple in Japanese culture and an icon of the kaiju genre. The original 1933 King Kong film, meanwhile, introduced its own famous monster that would go on to be widely recognized in American culture in some form. These two giants would finally butt heads in 1962 in the Japan-produced King Kong vs. Godzilla, remaining an anomaly to both franchises for the longest time. In celebration of its 60th anniversary, 2014 saw the release of a brand new American Godzilla film, all but wiping the infamous 1998 film from memory in the process as it kickstarted a crossover with King Kong in the form of the MonsterVerse, culminating in the two monsters' long-awaited rematch in the 2021 film Godzilla vs. Kong. Though the overall quality of these films is hit-and-miss depending on who you ask, contractual stipulations between Legendary Pictures and Toho mean only time will tell if these two cinematic icons will ever face off again in the future.

Below is a list of links to every MonsterVerse review on this blog, presented in order of release.
