    CANNES, France--Going to see "Godzilla" at the Palais of the Cannes Film Festival is like attending a satanic ritual in St. Peter's Basilica. It's a rebuke to the faith that the building represents. Cannes touchingly adheres to a belief that film can be intelligent, moving and grand. "Godzilla" is a big, ugly, ungainly device to give teenagers the impression they are seeing a movie. It was the festival's closing film, coming at the end like the horses in a parade,…

    first time I saw it, I liked the movie, for the simple fact that in my eyes the godzilla creature was actually kind of smart. Like I said in my HULK review this movie had a same effect on me. I like it because the creature was smart and because I had never seen anything like it. so this movie is more of a guilty pleasure movie to me. BUT with that said, yeah the movie is pretty bad. Tha…

    I was confused by this film, mostly because the title was Godzilla, but the film was Ferris Bueller makes friends with an overgrown T-Rex with a pescetarian penchant.

    Godzilla (or Godzirra for our Japanese readers) isn't really all that bad (or rearry all that bad) Just a summer action flick that apparently nobody liked and didn't make any money. I still have some Godzilla Taco Bell Cups, not because I liked it back then but because I have a problem getting rid of some things. I am not a hoarder!! Leave me alone! Well, I liked it ok and it is worth a few hours in the time killing department. Action from the 1st minute and goes all the way through. Give it a go.

    One of my favorite Films on the planet, Godzilla delivers at every important focal point of the Film. There is a lot of building up of storyline prior to the unveiling of Godzilla and when it is finally released does not disappoint at all. Another good part of Godzilla is how when you think it is going to end the Film just keeps rolling along like a tank, smashing you with violence and superior special effects that are pretty hard…

    Roland Emmerich's re-telling of the classic, Japanese monster tale about Gojira certainly isn't sophisticated, nor does it play out realistically in any way. Most of the characters are cardboard cutouts, the dialogue is wildly flawed, and the special effects don't really hold up that well in 2014. However, as with "Independence Day", the film gets by on its campy appeal and B-movies stchicks. Sure, there are probably more ingenious ways of approaching the material, but trying to argue that a…

    The major thing that popped into the memory banks about this 1998 version of Godzilla was, tellingly, not the actual movie but rather the two tie-in songs released around it - P Diddy's blaspheme of Kashmir & Jamiroquai's catchy Deeper Underground.

    Frankly, there isn't a pit deep underground enough to dispose of this cheesy, irritating, overblown, expensive, boring rubbish. Roland Emmerich directs with all the bluster & bombast but none of the charm, Maria Pitillo commits career suicide visibly on screen with…

    I watched when I was young and I don't see why people hated properly because they where comparing it to the original which will never help you like it, because everyone knows the originals are always the best.

    Well I'm glad GODZILLA (2014) is not a remake of this one.

    I watched this today listening to the SPFX commentary track. Emmerich was ambitious with this thing.
