Godzilla (1998)

It's critical that remakes understand the source material at the core of the target franchise, and this shockingly bad garbage absolutely does not, or worse, does not care. The plot, performances and narrative are all a gigantic mess in this pointless and cynical cash-in.

Godzilla (1998)

Yes, it has its problems with things like the size of Godzilla seemingly changing between shots, but from a pure entertainment perspective it really isn't that bad. A bit of Jean Reno can make anything better.
