You can like the movie, but, I think it is widely accepted the movie was a dismal failure.

Dean Devlin, the director even admits he failed and said this:

“I know I screwed up my Godzilla,”

 

Personally, I would never even put that movie anywhere in the history of Godzilla movies.

The same goes for "Gigantis", that will never be the proper name for Godzilla.

These are aberations, and are mistakes.

Conversly even though, I am not very found of what Edward's did with Godzilla, he did come close enough to the design and intent of the said creature, and its properly named.

Like I said, by all means like what you like, it probably would have been accepted more had it had a different name.

Out of curiosity, High Flyers, which Godzilla films have you seen thusfar?

The only opinion that matters with regards to what you like is YOURS. My curiosty is in line with GMAN2887's: what Godzilla films have you seen? :)

@TALISMAN Gigantis was only the American version, he's called Godzilla in the original version.

As for the 1998 film, I don't think it's actually that bad. The problem is it's called 'Godzilla' if it were exactly the same but wasn't passed off as Godzilla I would like it a lot more.

Well considering you've only seen 10 movies, 12 if you include 1998 and the new movie, I guess it's not too much of a stretch.

(Although I'd choose any of those movies over 1998, personally. Well... Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla's arguable...)

First a friendly jab at Something Real (cuz I just gotta): if Josef Stalin posted here, would you say anyhing bad to him?  Juuuuuust kidding....

Okay...HFTT, I would never hate you...maybe show something like morbid curiosity?

But the movie? If I were a devote Hare Krishna, I'd still be hatin'. One of only three films I've ever seen that inspired such a feeling in me by the time it was over (this, Demi Moore's utterly hate-inspiring Scarlet Letter, and the inexplicably awful Absolute Power).  I remember in the final scene, muttering audibly in the theater, "and they ripped off King Kong...the 1976 King Kong!!" Yeah, THAT BAD.

This movie is one of those rarities that checks so many blocks on the crappiness list, that I've lost count (Non-Ed Wood Category, of course): waste of good actors: check; complete aimlessness: check; egregiously disloyal to its lineage: DOUBLE check; shamelessly glomming onto some other popular movie of that time: TRIPLE check; stereotypically portraying the best military in the world as hopelessly incompetent: check; and perhaps worst of all--annoyingly implausible within a genre that is itself built upon implausibility: CHHHHHHECK!!  I mean, do you think the reason the Japanese renamed this thing AND gave us Daisake Matsuzaka was just because of the box office haul?  No...they were also secretly invoking the real Godzilla to make a beeline for Tri-Star studios in 1999, believe me.  

The most memorable thing about this film was its oppositely-brilliant pre-release marketing.  Who could forget the giant foot crushing the T-Rex fossil? Awesome! Oh my God, they're gonna make a freaking awesome, CGI, kickass Godzilla movie!  What could be better?

Nine months later, we had Roland Emmerich, trying to make dark comedy jabs at Roger Ebert, Harry Shearer mailing it in so much he probably wished he could be Derick Smalls playing the part of Charles Caiman, and thanfully inspiration for one of the most sublimely funny Robot Chicken shorts ever.

When I left the theater at the end of Emmerich’s Folly with my ex-wife, and bitterly exclaiming, “Great! Now they’ve ruined Godzilla for the next 20 years—no one will want to touch it.”  Thank you Gareth Edwards for getting there four years early. (My Ex-wife was an unabashed lover of Sci-Fi and probably about as non-critical as our lovely member, Something Real. She had already seen it (I’d been stationed in the Balkans), and when I asked her how it was, she paused and said, “Um, I dunno, not so great.”  That’s synonymous with “1.5 out of 10” from her…I didn’t listen).

I would never hate you Dude, and I salute your individuality, honesty, and well, bravery.  That said, if we ever have a party, I’m cracking jokes about you all night long…
