Brief Synopsis:
The aim of this project was to give the viewer a single intense Godzilla experience by combining the best elements from Godzilla (2014) with a streamlined Godzilla (2019) .
Intention:
While I enjoy both of the recent Godzilla films I found both to be flawed. The first simply lacks enough Godzilla while the second is bloated by too much human interest. My aim was to produce the a single satisfying movie using the best elements from both films.

I like the first Godzilla film, although I felt too much time was spent on character development, particular given that none of the characters were all that interesting. The second film is a bit of a mess, but we got much more of a cut to the chase monster movie in Godzilla vs. Kong. This edit expertly combines the first two films (mostly the second) to create a perfect pairing for the third. In losing all the character development, the focus is purely on the monsters and the terrific special effects. It's much more of a roller coaster now, which is exactly what I was looking for.

The editing is seamless and expertly done. Highly recommended.

A much better version of the second Godzilla film. I felt like there could have been more of the first film introducing Godzilla and less of ATJ although it's been awhile since I've seen it and I don't know if that is even possible with the footage available. That being said, I'd much rather watch this than sit through both of the original films. At least now the second film is a lot more bearable.

I like the new opening. It's a simple critique but you could have cut a few shots early of Elle running from the destruction. Extended shots of her felt off, but not of the crowd she was in.

I like how you went from Emma pre-kitchen, to the Monarch hearing scene, back to post-kitchen,then into the Mothra "taming" scene. This was illuminating to see done.

Your edit's transitions all felt clean. I just can't stand all the jokes in this movie.

But, the way you re-arrange shots within in a scene, as well as entire scenes around other scenes, was intriguing to see done as an editor myself.

Godzilla fans having nothing to fear when coming to watch this version.

Just got done watching this and I really love it!!!!

I love the transitions between the two movies, they transition between each film in a amazing way!
I also Love the intro to this fanedit!

I really like how this fanedit begins as a really cool recap or it can be seen as another cool fight scene to the film!
Also the trimming done to KOTM was really useful for speeding up the story and getting rid of scenes that may have dragged too long.

Definitely check this one out!

I think combining the two films helps the narrative flow better than it did before. I do have quite a few qualms with the original two films in the first place, so my score for narrative is still affected. I do think that this is a great edit, and anyone who is a fan of the franchise should check it out.
