I think I'm the only person who will admit to liking the 1998 Broderick Godzilla. It wasn't great or anything, but it kept me entertained for a couple hours.


It was a big monster movie, I have no idea what other people were expecting.

Agreed. I thought this was solid as well.

The Broderick movie was horrendous. My favorite Godzilla, though, has to be Bobcat Goldthwait in One Crazy Summer. lol

Exactly. I remember a lot of people bitching about how it didn't look like the old Godzilla and me thinking "well no shit, I'd hope not since the old Gojira was a man in a shitty, ugly rubber monster suit." I mean shit, it was 1998 and CGI/SFX were taking off that decade, so how can you bitch about a giant lizard monster that looked fine/real enough??

That wasn't Godzilla. Godzilla was a dinosaur born from nuclear tests over an island in the south Pacific Ocean. Godzilla was a giant, indestructible monster with a hankering for nuclear material to feed off.

Godzilla was the king of all monsters. Japan's unwanted but needed savior. Godzilla never just showed up to frick shite up. He came because he sensed the presence of other monsters. Godzilla was a protagonist and hero, not some suped up iguana that ran around NYC like a bitch.

That 1998 abortion was no Godzilla film. A Godzilla film has the real Godzilla, a pro and antagonist, and most importantly of all, radiation breath.

Yes.

He did so in the very first film. That's all he was and all the 98 version was giving a nod towards.

He only became a hero later, let's not paint him as such when the purpose of the 1998 film was to remake Godzilla 1954 in the US (which, yes, lost all of the nuclear context). It took at least 5 films for Godzilla to be a "hero."

Debatable, depending on your context. It wasn't a sequel, or prequel, it wasn't even a remake.

quote:

Eh, it takes more than one film to do this anyway.

True.

As a big fan of Godzilla, I too awaited that crap. Huge disappointment! Size may not matter but other things do. Like I don't consider Alien 4 part of the series, Zilla is not. It looks nothing like him, same was done to Kong '05.

If Godzilla is the King of Monsters, King Kong is the God of Monsters. Just created that title for him.

In the ORIGINAL film, he DID show up to just frick shite up. There were no opponents like Mothra, Ghidirah, the Smog Moster or Mecha-Godzilla. For whatever reasoning, Toho decided to turn Godzilla into basically a "Saturday morning kiddie cartoon" and brought in all the WWF like adversaries. With each new successive sequel, the Godzilla costume became more cartoon like too, until it was just too over the top silly.

BTW, he's supposed to be a nuclear irradiated Marine Iguana. I always wondered what happened to all those other MI's. Seems there should have been thousands of Godzilla's created from the radiation. Why only one?

I liked the 98 film, except for the ending and the fact that they made Godzilla a little too nice. Gotta have that radiation breath going on there fellas. Doesn't surprise me though, since it was done by the same idiots that totally
ruined "Independence Day" with a ludicrous finale.

I was so pissed when the 98 Godzilla got it on the bridge. I really really really wanted him to win.
