I only saw this in the theater, and at that time, I was young and liked everything. Therefore, I must see this again. Netflix it is.Did the primary buffer panel just fall off my gorram ship for no apparent reason?!

Heh. This movie is on its way to me along with Howards End and The General.
My mental image is of the other two movies in the box being confused at the presence of the third, and probably agreeing it was a mistake, and that it's just best not to talk to it.
Ah, but I still loves it, though.

I'm embarrassed to say that I saw this movie for the first time ever yesterday. I have this Blu-Ray sickness, where I must watch everything; even movies that I have heard are complete shit from EVERYBODY for the last 11 years. Well, the embarrassing thing isn't that I saw the movie for the first time, but rather that I liked it....I liked it A LOT....in fact, I down right loved this movie. LOL.
Seriously though, what is NOT to like about this movie? The special FX are still good...lots of nice shots of a giant monster just smashing shit up (isn't that the only reason we would watch this trash anyways?). The characters are cartoon character caricatures, but they're played by likable people: Matthew Broderick, Hank Azaria, Jean Reno.....and don't forget the gay guy from Melrose Place plays an army officer. lol. Also, I for one, actually liked the Madison Square Garden sequence too. It was quite a visual feast to see 200 eggs laying in the middle of the Garden waiting to hatch...wow... I was very impressed by that!
Sorry to say guys....but if you know what you're getting into: "Indepence Day"/"Day After Tomorrow"/10,000 BC/Universal Soldier guys set out to make another big budget, no story, disaster movie, blockbuster where shit blows up real good....then you really shouldn't be complaining about this movie. It totally delivers on what it promises. I'd give this movie a 3 out of 5, and I would watch it again.......if they would magically cut 45 minutes out of it that is. Cut out 45 minutes and this movie might be a 4 out of 5...who knows?

Anyway, I love this movie and don't understand why other people don't. It seems like people like hating any movie that relies heavily on CGI, and when reviewing, end up reviewing everything BUT the CGI (writing, story, directing etc). Obviously those things are important but good CGI (which I think this movie has) should increase your rating, especially if it's a movie like this (same with ID4, 2012, etc) as CGI is a very important part to making the movie work.
Also, people need to view this film like a reboot of Godzilla, and not technically a sequel in the same canon as the other versions. This is how Hollywood thought Godzilla should be done, and I agree.# of PS3 games: 29

Sometimes, takes time to love or hate... and people have different views too...
Some movies, you learn to hate them with time; Godzilla is one of them.
Others, it's the opposite... Kong...

Same is true with anything in life...
And we all have so different tastes too...

This for me is a guilty pleasure, I have this in DVD, and I will buy eventually, but I do also love this movie, I know is a bad movie, a really missed opportunity, but well at least he tried, why doesnt someone try to do a better version?
Now that we are all about reboots, maybe they can make a better godzilla I dont know.

And calling Godzilla films trash, or at least generalizing all of them, is part of the problem as well. I find it hilarious when some people (not saying you, this is a general gripe) find giant monster films ridiculous, yet a guy who creates a super suit and begins flying around battling other guys in super suits fine Hollywood entertainment (Iron Man). I loved that movie too, but to think one is acceptable and the other cinematic trash makes zero sense to me.

To the person who obviously never watched this movie. (okay, sorry, this is me being an ass, but still )
Yes, the American godzilla DOES breathe fire. It happens when Brodrick and the french guy is in the taxi, trying to out run Godzilla. It's only once, but it does happen.
Anyway, ever since 98, I have always enjoyed this movie. My problem is, I only own it on VHS.
And I have not seen this movie in years. Besides, being 20, it'll be interesting to see this movie now. Eitherway, i'll still enjoy it.|B|L|U|-|R|A|Y|

Yeah this movie is nothing but an unmitigated disaster. The big guy doesn't even show up in his own movie.
Godzilla (1984) is still my favorite of the series. That movie was grim.Proud to be purple.

Keep in mind that Godzilla breathing fire was NOT part of the original script, and only after an irate fan poll was that scene added in to appease them.

I have seen this film, but dont remember it to well since it has been years. I do remember it being entertaining enough though. Will definately give this a rent to check out the audio though since I have read a few reports now that the audio kicks ass!
