According to my dad, on my third birthday, he took a sick day to take me with him to see Die Hard (1988) on its opening weekend. When I asked why he’d take a three-year-old to that film, he said, “It was time you became a man.”

Watched Godzilla (2014). So, M.U.T.O. is a pregnant mom in a hostile environment trying to find her male counterpart for what’s clearly to be an intimate partnership in protecting their species from extinction, and Godzilla kills them and he’s the hero. Makes sense.
