Another thing they totally forget in the American Godzilla is that behind all the "glitz", Godzilla is really a eco-terrorist at heart.

If they make it just a big beast on a rampage, there won't be much charm to it.

I'm excited for sure! I own 12 Godzilla films and 5 gamera films! Giant radioactive monsters do it for me! I have quite a bit of the toys too!

As willowfang said Godzilla was always hellbent on making people not so energy dependent so hopefully they play on that!

Honda was my favorite director in the series so if they incorporate more of his style I will be a happy camper.

All I can say is if they bring back Godzilla I hope like hell it isnt like that bullshit version that had Matthew Broderick in it. The monster looked nothing like Godzilla and I would honestly rather have seen him destroy Tokyo again for the billionth time than New York again. I think the writer and director need to watch some of the older films and take notes. With the technology that exists today I think if someone uses cgi and other programs correctly for once we could see a quality film but I wouldnt hold my breath if I were you.

Zilla '98 was very much a 'monster on the loose' type film. Much like 'Beat of 20,000 Fathoms'. Which can be entertaining when it comes to Kaiju films, but the issue many people had with that approach, is the fact that it just simply wasn't the correct approach to take with a property like Godzilla.

I don't get the hate for 98 zilla I went to the theater and enjoyed myself! Did I think it was a true godzilla flick hmm no but it was still a decent movie.

That's the primary issue that resulted in the film not being well received than it otherwise probably would have been. It wasn't a *true* Godzilla film. And as a consequence, was extremely perplexing to fans and casual fans alike who walked in and watched a film titled, "Godzilla" that had the monster fleeing from helicopters, and whatever other nonsense implemented by Devlin and Emmerich to distance themselves as much as possible from what Toho had previously established in any one of their efforts.

As a giant monster Kaiju movie, Zilla '98 is fine. As a Godzilla movie, it's not.

I didn't like the film much at all, but the director does have some talent in stretching resources. Monsters was really to weak to be a full length feature and it seemed more like a demo than anything else. This could be pretty cool now that Darabont's involved.

I know this is going to be a stupid question but is Godzilla going to be the bad guy this time around or the good guy?

Not much is known about the script at present time, but considering the "Destroyer of Worlds" line being attributed to Godzilla in the SDCC teaser, it certainly doesn't leave one to think Godzilla is going to be anything remotely like the Earth Defender role that was going on in the 1970's.

Wonderful Even though I enjoyed both aspects of Godzilla growing up.
