Ranking Every Movie In The MonsterVerse

5. Godzilla: KOTM
2019’s “Godzilla: King of the Monsters” couldn’t come close to living up to the promise of the trailer that dropped at San Diego Comic-Con in 2018.
The film was overstuffed with too many ideas and human characters that added little. Many also felt the film wasted fan-favorite monsters Mothra, Rodan, and King Ghidorah.
4. The New Empire
Adam Wingard’s “Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire” was big, utterly ridiculous, over-the-top, colorful, and bombastic, but it was also fun to watch.
The film explores a different take on Godzilla regarding his look and demeanor, but he takes a backseat to Kong, who becomes a more fleshed-out, fully realized character.
3. Godzilla vs. Kong
“Godzilla vs. Kong” pits the titular characters against each other in one of the first blockbusters to open in theaters after the pandemic.
The film delivered excellent-looking fights that were hugely satisfying and nonsense fun that fans had wanted. “Godzilla vs. Kong” also introduced new ideas like Hollow Earth.
