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.
Hi my name is Feanor Curufin the only son of Finwe there is Raven finwion and I have long ebony black hair (that’s how I got my name) with dark red streaks and fiery red tips that reaches my mid-back and icy blue eyes like limpid tears and a lot of people tell me I look like Mandos (AN: if u don’t know who he is get da hell out of here!). I’m not related to (insert characters Name) but I wish I was because he’s a major fucking hottie. I’m a Noldor but I’m like super skilled (even more skilled than Aule). I have pale white skin. I’m also a Major dick, and I live in the best place of all of arda (valinor) that’s where all the valar and elves live. I’m a goth (in case you couldn’t tell) and I wear mostly black. I love Hot Topic and I buy all my clothes from there. For example today I was wearing a black corset with matching lace around it and a black tight leather pants, a red velvet robe, black combat boots and my silmarils. I was wearing black lipstick, white foundation, black eyeliner and red eye shadow. I was walking outside Mahtan’s Forge. It was snowing and raining so there was no sun, which I was very happy about. Melkor stared at me. I put up my middle finger at him.
