I published a new one As part of Piece at The dropout this evening. With the release and success of Godzilla versus Kong On HBO Max and in theaters last week, it seemed like a good opportunity to take a look at the aggressive rejection of the movie’s meaning. Godzilla versus Kong is not a film that is particularly concerned with subtext or metaphor. It is not a parable of humanity’s confrontation with the unknown, the hunger for war that lurks in every human heart, or even the dangers of how human beings treat the environment. Instead, it’s a movie about a giant monkey beating a giant lizard until one of them falls down. Perhaps, however, there is nothing inherently wrong with this, especially after a year of meaningfulness to many people has been inundated. . ..
