A monster doesn’t need a lot of screen time to have a big presence.
Dracula really only shows up at the beginning and end of his book, but he is felt in EVERY chapter between.
The shark in Jaws barely shows up at all, and yet its presence hangs over the film like the specter of death.
Smaug really only appears in one chapter of The Hobbit, yet his portrayal of a dragon was so iconic that it utterly changed how dragons were represented in Western literature ever after (and said chapter was even published independently of the rest of the book in some dragon related anthologies - that’s how good it is).
Hannibal Lecter is so iconic in the film version of The Silence of the Lambs that Anthony Hopkins got an Oscar for a performance that was only 19 minutes long.
I’m not saying that people don’t have a reason to complain about the percieved lack of Godzilla in Godzilla (2014), but, y’know, there’s a bit of a counterpoint to be made about screen time vs. screen presence.
I don’t want to be an adult anymore.
So… Age of Extinction was no where near as bad as most reviews made it out to be.
Today’s the day!

You know what would be fun? Going to the Disney store dressed up as Disney characters.
