Hi, my name is Jonathan. 20. Toronto. Cuckoo film person.
I post about film. Talk about film. Theorize film. Review Film. Maybe even make some from time to time.
Oh, and other stuff I suppose... I guess, like art and photography and music and other ramblings.
It’s honestly a moot point - some folks consider certain aspects to be screen time, others think that it only counts when Godzilla’s full body is onscreen, like that video on Youtube that skips a large chunk of Godzilla’s Honolulu scenes because he’s obscured by water.
What matters almost as much as screentime is the presence a character has. Godzilla may have not been physically onscreen for a lot of the new film but his shadow looms large.
I honestly think this reductionist mentality towards monster movies and the amount of time a monster is onscreen is asinine.
