    So, like, I know that as a Godzilla fan I'm supposed to hate this or what ever, but aside from being a little too long it was a really fucking good time. Since it's a new, different version made by a different company for a different audience, I really have no problem with the way Godzilla looks. Even though he is just a stupid animal instead of some relentless force of nature or what ever, it's interesting to see him…

    A truly bad film, this 1998 Godzilla remake isn't even a real Godzilla film. Not only is this monster nothing like the Godzilla we know and love, but the film also decides turns into a Jurassic Park clone about two-thirds of the way in. Emmerich successfully apes Spielberg's open-mouthed awe occasionally (an early set piece on a pier is a fun - if cheap - thrill), but more often than not the film slips into the bland kind of mediocrity…

    Watched the godzilla movie of 1998. This was on tv today. Saw that movie a lot when i was younger. And i thought it was great that time :)

    Now i saw it, and i really didn't like it anymore. The Computer Effects are terrible, the acting wasn't good either. And the story line could be better....lol

    I wanted to buy this, not so long ago. But i'm not gonna buy this version anymore. I liked the 2014 a lot better.

    Terrible, just terrible. Why does a TV station show this on a Sunday evening, and why do I watch this to the end? I only saw the first Godzilla movie (as part of my Japanese movies watchlist), which I found pleasing. As a result, I don't have much to work with in terms of comparison, but this was one of the worst action/CGI movies I have ever seen. Boring, loud, predictable, an utter waste of time (that would be me) and money (that would be Hollywood).

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    This review takes an alternative route at looking at the 1998 anti-classic and flips it on its head.

    There's a guiding light of aspiration for anyone back in the 90's (or any era for that matter) that had the balls to take on this material and not only convert it for mainstream audiences expecting "Independence Day" all over again, but also for adapting it as more of a goofy satirical cliche of 90's popcorn entertainment than an actual Godzilla film.…

    This is generally acknowledged as one of the low points of the series. Toho unwisely gave Hollywood director Roland Emmerich total creative control of the film, which famously resulted in a film that looked an awful lot like someone had dropped a dinosaur from Jurassic Park into almost any other Roland Emmerich film.

    Here’s the thing. I like Roland Emmerich films. Yeah, Independence Day is the only one I’ll argue is legitimately great (and I’d expect some rather heated counterarguments),…
