i am getting kinda of sick people talking about ZILLA 1998 so badly so it wasn't godzilla but it was not that bad i mean its a giant monster in a city causing destruction and some people not most are saying that the creature was horrible personally i loved the design the only thing wrong with it to me that it is called godzilla it could have called it a remake of the beast from 20000 fathoms but to godzilla other than that i really do not give a single shit so stop complaining

^Interesting opinion. But what I meant was what if the 2014 movie was, in an alternate timeline, the first American Godzilla movie? As in, what if the 1998 movie was never made? Keep in mind, though, that the millennium series was made in response to the 1998 film.

Things would be very different had the 2014 movie been a success amongst fans and the box office. (Which--Box office was very different back then too. Even G'14 may not have made it, but that's a different story due to a changing era.)

Toho may have stuck with their decision to not make another movie until 2005 and we would likely have never been given the Millennium series, Shin Godzilla and the anime trilogy. At least not in the way we know it.

well we will never know. I am glad that the 98 movie did come out for other reasons that suited myself. I couldn't find any Heisei series Godzilla movies except for 84 and Biollante ojn VHS, I lived in a small town where the movie shops didn't carry much, then 98 hit theaters and all of a sudden all 5 90's G-movies where around and I finally could see these movies as a kid. The toy stores carried more Godzilla action figures from the classic era and I could bask in the glory of Godzilla for the first time as a kid with close to zero Godzilla action figures and books and other Godzilla memorabilia.

The 98 has a place on my DVD shelf along the other giant kaiju films. As a 12 year old kid, this movie was very exciting to me to see. As I grew older I realized its short comings but can not deny it also has a place in my heart. Whether its nostalgia or just not willing to come to terms with its short comings back then, Im still going to keep accepting it as a way for a small town Godzilla fan to experience something I would have never been able to experience as a young kid stuck in the middle of nowhere.

still a bad movie tho, haha

YOU.....DUMBBELL!

Does anyone feel like Zilla should appear in a new Toho film (on-screen appearance, not just in dialogue or in non-film media)? I know the last time it happened, it was payback for the 1998 film, but then IDW made a fight between Zilla and Godzilla that I think should have been done on-screen. So who agrees with me?

98 Godzilla was the best movie I ever seen because it was the first Godzilla movie that I ever seen I didn't know everything about him until I saw this movie. Okay so yes it had some bad things in it and Zilla didn't have any monster to fight but Zilla still had the military to fight Zilla. The military did more damage than Zilla did to the city and at when Zilla got trapped in the suspension cable of the Brooklyn bridge Zilla had know where to go and left her open for the military that's when the very sadly killed poor Zilla and I cried.
