The Delicate & Tricky Balancing Act Of Monster Movies: Opinion Piece

I think it is fair to say that the 'monster' movie is slightly struggling to really find its feet. As Universal are apparently making a 'monster-verse' and 'Kong: Skull Island's' post credit teaser hinting at some major monster v monster goodness, I discuss the issues and challenge of creating monster movies in today's world. There may be things I miss or overlook, but this is my take on the main issues that I think are affecting and may continue to affect the big monster movies.
