Turn Up the Evil!

I think the best moment of this movie is when "Godzilla" picks up the "heroes'" cab in his mouth, including the section of road that it was driving on. Then one of the "heroes" gets the idea to shock "Godzilla" into dropping the cab by jamming a power line into its gums: a power line that is sticking out of the section of road that is no longer connected to the ground.

That was laugh-out-loud stupid.

No way, that's terrible.  I will have to dig out this forgotten and obviously misunderstood masterpiece of modern cinema and rewatch it.  I don't think I've seen it since the theatrical run, but the one thing that I do remember is that it featured the cute Maria Pitillo.  She was a honey.

A good bad movie is like popcorn for the soul!

Obviously it was a very long cable . . . .

Ya know, I loved this movie in the theaters and I have rewatched it several times since and liked it each time.  Yes, it has  its goofy moments, but I rather liked the fact that Godzilla moved and acted like a REAL lizard, not like a guy in a big rubber suit.

Is that blasphemy?

Naw, just a difference of a opinion.  Mine happens to be opposite.  Wink

Actually, I don't hate Godzilla '98, at least not as much as I used to.  It's a passable kaiju movie, but calling it Godzilla didn't feel quite right.  I didn't feel like I was watching a Godzilla movie, but a Godzilla knock off.  Then again, I've seen plenty of those and enjoyed them just the same.

If they had called it something else, I'd be more forgiving.
Calling this...thing, Godzilla...not happening.

What made them think it could pass as a Godzilla movie when the monster doesn't even breathe radioactive fire onto its enemies?

Now Godzilla 2000! That was a good Godzilla movie!

I was unaware that the "real" Godzilla kicks the crap out of the Emmerich version in "Godzilla: Final Wars." I'm gonna have to track down a copy of that one just to see that!!!

HELP! WE ARE STUCK IN A GOOD MOVIE!!!


« Reply #38 on: September 16, 2012, 09:26:54 AM »

I have seen this and actually liked it.  This was more realistic than a rubber suit.  Still a B movie but still good.  I bought it on DVD.  I would recommend it to any one.

Thanks,

John

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
