That Godzilla fill is a sore spot for me as well. It was more like "Ferris Bueler Meets Gozilla"

Imagine someone tries to adapt LOTR, but instead of being close to the books, they just keep Aragorn and Gandalf, maybe Gimli too. The story is set in New York in the 1990ies and the plot involves a bank heist.
Is this a LOTR movie or just a movie with LOTR characters in it? Is First Class a Comic Book Movie or just a misogynist pile of crap despite Fassbenders great acting movie with comicbook characters in it?
You 3 guys are sooo on my Xmas card list! LOL!

Or if nothing else a very poor comicbook film.
