SpaceGodzillaAdmin21777 XPApr-21-2013 7:40 PMTeam GhidorahWhat did you think of the [b]Godzilla 2000[/b] movie? [center] [url=http://www.godzilla-movies.com/gallery/view/img/77][img]http://www.godzilla-movies.com/media/godzilla_by_tokocholate-d3fr204.jpg[/img][/url] [/center] Personally, I really enjoyed it. I liked the villain in the film, [b]Orga[/b] and I thought the film had a pretty good pace. My only complain is that in the North American version of the film, it used some of [i]Zilla's[/i] roars instead of [i]Godzilla's[/i] - you know, the reeeeally high pitched roar. What about you guys? What did you think of [b]Godzilla 2000[/b]?

Mothra LarvaeMember0 XPApr-22-2013 11:03 AMAnything to do with that cult Japanese creature has me excited as a kid - even before the 2000 version came out, I already had seen probably everything related to the Godzillian history (at least the 1970-80's cinematography). The 2000 was [surprisingly] far from dissapointing and is definitely in the top 3 of all time productions.

Mothra LarvaeMember14 XPApr-30-2013 7:05 PMI love it. My only problem with the movie is the English dubbing, it's not [i]THAT[/i] God-awful or anything, but the voices didn't sound convincing to me, with TriStar handling the voice dubbing, especially after...what they did in '98...I'm pretty sure some lines in the movie are not like in the original version.

Mothra LarvaeMember0 XPApr-30-2013 9:18 PMIt was the first Godzilla i saw. And Orga is one of my favorite characters.

Mothra LarvaeMember0 XPMay-13-2013 9:22 AMi thought the movie was pretty good i thought godzilla looked a little weird but he was still cool. orga is a pretty awesome monster. it was an improvement on the 1998 american film.
KING KAIJU 1 small step for kaiju 1 giant step for godzilla!!!!

Mothra LarvaeMember0 XPMay-13-2013 11:09 PMI feel like this movie gets a lot of crap is doesn't deserve. It's in my top 5 Godzilla movies for sure. It had the right mix of dark and light-hearted elements. Plus, it has my second favorite Godzilla design. It looks great. I also really like Orga as an opponent. In the end, this movie may have its problems, but it was a much better way to bring back the Godzilla character, as opposed to a giant iguana running around NYC with his velociraptor babies.

Mothra LarvaeMember0 XPMay-23-2013 5:57 PMGodzilla 2000 was one of the first Godzilla films I ever saw...I'm not sure why it gets the flak that it does, because it rocks! I liked the redesign of the Godzilla suit, the music was good as always, and an awesome monster mash against one of the most interesting monsters I've ever seen.

Mothra LarvaeMember0 XPJul-09-2013 6:45 AMI personally loved it, it currently stands as my 2nd favorite Godzilla movie to date. This movie has one of the best Godzilla designs that I've ever seen in any of the Godzilla movies. I also thought that Orga was a great monster too. The music was awesome and so was the monster battle. One of the best movies ever made for sure (In my opinion).

Mothra LarvaeMember0 XPJul-09-2013 9:31 AMMy second favorite after GMK. I like how they used zillas roars for Godzillas breathing.

In 1995 Toho killed off Godzilla, 1998 Tristar raped the name, but then in what seemed like retaliation Toho countered back with a new movie (Godzilla 2000) of basicly what the american version should of been. It was like a can air freshener after someone took a nasty ****. It was the 1st Godzilla movie to be released theatricly in the US since 1985, It was a kick start to a new series. Godzilla looks pretty cool this movie. Godzilla opponent was a UFO at 1st & then extracts Godzilla DNA & transform in to Orga, the battle between Godzilla & Orga is one of my favorites of all time especially the way Godzilla blow him away at then when getting sucked in priceless lol!

It's my favorite Godzilla movie (next to the original 'Gojira')! The Japanese version is the best, though.

It had a cool Godzila design, interesting story, and a complete bada$$ enemy monster!

It's probably the best movie in the millennium and it was really nice to see a TOHO Godzilla in theaters for the first time for me since I wasn't alive when Return of Godzilla was released.

GiganAdmin4816 XPDec-16-2013 1:12 PMTeam Ghidorah

It was okay. Certainly not the best of the Millennium series, but not the worst. It was probably Takeo Okawara's most mature directorial effort of the four movies he's directed.

Still, he does the same thing with his characters that he did in the Heisei series-- has them standing far off on a building, or a big room with a giant screen, watching the monsters duke it out from afar. His characters just don't have anything to do when the final battle starts. So unlike the Showa era... The characters were fairly uneven anyway, so maybe it's a moot point.

And even though we've already touched on G-Cells in vs. Biollante, I suppose it was interesting to see an alien race take advantage of them, instead of humanity. It was a very different take on the alien invasion plotline than we're used to.

The special effects ranged from spectacular to mediocre, with more mediocre moments than not. I think the issue here is that Gamera 3 came out the same year and, once again, Gamera shows up Godzilla in just about every aspect-- writing, directing, special effects, acting...etc...

The same thing happened in 1995 when both Gamera Guardian of the Universe was released the same year as Godzilla vs. Destroyah. Both good movies, but Gamera was vastly superior in every way.

By the time Toho's team caught up with everything that went down in Gamera: Guardian of the Universe, Daiei's team had taken another big leap with Gamera 3. Even GMK, as fantastic as it was, was unable to measure up. I think there was an expectation starting with Godzilla 2000 that was just not reached for both fans and critics. Gamera 3 set the bar and every Millennium Godzilla movie missed it. If not for that, Godzilla 2000 might have been thought more highly of.

Still it was great to see a Godzilla movie as a wide release again. It's a fun movie, like Okawara's other Godzilla flicks, but when you step away from it you see a few issues.

I disagree with so many parts of that post but seeing as most if it is opinion based I can't really argue why my opinion is better than yours since it's mostly about preference

GiganAdmin4816 XPDec-16-2013 6:31 PMTeam Ghidorah

Which is the case for anything, especially movie related. The idea is support that opinion as best as possible.

I'll second guess and assume much of it has to do with my opinion on the Heisei series which you enjoy a lot. I do as well and am often one of the first to defend it amongst most of the fandom, but I can't exactly argue against its many weaknesses.

I loved it, wasn't perfect but was a great entry in the series. One of my favorite Godzilla designs, I LOVED the huge dorsal fins. Not the toned down version used in 2002/2003. Orga was a great kaiju, one of my favorite one hit wonders along with Hedorah and Biollante. That's Toho general problem of rehashing old villians instead of creating new ones. I generally prefer a more realistic JSDF, in other words no super weapons and maser cannons. The idea of a Godzilla Predection Network was fantastic, as we have similar real groups that track tornados. The characters in the film are among my all time favorites, and last but not least it's the first and only Japanese Godzilla film I've gotten to see in theaters.

10 Questions with Mike Schlesinger

Q2. You’re a long-time Godzilla fan. Tell us about your involvement in Godzilla 2000.

Well, that’s not a short story, but I’ll try to make it so. Sony’s distribution chief Jeff Blake (whom I largely owe my career to) happened to be in Japan when G2K opened and was breaking records. Since the Emmerich version didn’t turn out to be the most-beloved film of its generation, the studio was unsure of how to proceed. Jeff felt that releasing G2K here would be at least a place-keeper and at best a make-good to the fans who felt let down by the Emmerich.

We had a screening, and there was considerable concern: the pace was slack and the dubbing was pretty dire. Jeff was having second thoughts. I assured him that with some judicious editing and a new dub it’d be right as rain. He said, “Okay, then you do it.” And just like that it was in my lap. He figured, I hope correctly, that I was the only one there who’d actually seen some Godzilla movies and would have the right handle on it. So with a release date breathing down our necks, I dove right in.

Jimmy Honore, then Sony’s post-production czar, provided me with an editor and a sound man. Toho’s local guy, Masaharu Ina, was also involved, as every single change had to be approved by Tokyo. I wrote a new script, hired a swell bunch of Asian-American actors to reloop, and worked with the editor to sweat nine minutes of fat out of the film (over 130 individual cuts) and restructuring scenes to increase the tension. We rebuilt the soundtrack from scratch, adding some new music cues (including a couple of classic Ifukube themes) and creating foley for scenes that had been played in total background silence. I even did directional dialogue in some scenes. The sound guys were brilliant and completely supportive, and very complimentary whenever I came up with a suggestion that worked. Happily, Toho (albeit a bit grudgingly at first) admitted that our version was a big improvement; so much so that they even re-released it subtitled in Tokyo, as well as a few other countries, like India. The reviews here were mostly positive (if sometimes patronizing). It made money. And best of all, I got a six-week crash course in post-production that has served me very well. Even I was surprised at how quickly I picked it up. And I have the unique honor of being the first person to put a line of Yiddish in a Godzilla movie.

Q5. There’s a legend in the film world about your long-lost Godzilla script, which was almost shot by Joe Dante. Please, relate the whole story, down to why it didn’t get made. Is there any hope for it now?

Legend? Seriously? Wow. Anyway, it’s doubtful it’ll ever get made, what with the new Warners version coming out next year. It started, as so much of my life does, with a joke. I ran into my friend Jon Davison one day; he was at Sony producing The Sixth Day. I told him about what Toho was doing with my version of G2K (as related above), and he said, “Yeah, you’re really Mr. Godzilla now.” I laughed, “Yeah, and if these guys were smart, they’d get you, me and Joe to do the next American one.” He said, “Hey, we’re there.” Later in the day, I was pondering this and thought, “Well, why not? Who better to save the franchise?” So I called them both and asked if they were interested. They were, so I went in to the Columbia production head and pitched the idea of a “Wrath of Khan”-like sequel: a modestly-budgeted, man-in-suit picture, using Toho’s effects people, but set in America with English-speaking actors. I said we could do it for $20 million. He was intrigued, but said he really couldn’t authorize it. However, if I wanted to write it on spec, they would certainly consider it if it came out as good as I said it would. That was fine by me.

So I went home and got to work. I set it in Hawaii for various reasons, among them that I’d need no tortured explanation of how Godzilla got there, not to mention the unlikelihood of any actor turning down a feature being shot in Hawaii. (My suggested tagline: “Say aloha to your vacation plans.”) I decided to follow the Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein Rule–make the human scenes funny and play the monster stuff straight. I wrote it with genre favorites in mind for the cast: Bruce Campbell, Jamie Lee Curtis, Scott Bakula, Christopher Lee, Leonard Nimoy and of course Joe’s stock company. After jokingly giving it the temporary title of Godzilla—East of Java, I settled on Godzilla Reborn, which referred to not only the franchise but also the storyline, in which he’s killed and eventually resuscitated. Sid Ganis eventually came on board as a producer as well. Everybody adored the script. It shoulda been a no-brainer.

Unfortunately, by the time I finished it, Columbia had a new production head, and he wanted no part of it. Wouldn’t even read it. It takes balls to say that to Sid Ganis, who’s a former Academy president, but he did. And there ya go. Now everyone’s too old for their parts and Warners has the franchise. A damn shame; it would’ve been a monster hit. Pun intended.

If it wasn't for this film I would've never gotten into Godzilla. I absolutely LOVE this movie I can't say one bad thing about it. This movie will always hold a special place in my heart.
