    The very ending definitely opened the door for a sequel, but I'm guessing the film didn't do well enough at the box office to warrant a second movie...

    I also liked Cloverfield & Monsters, so I may be in the minority re: my opinion on these modern monster films...

    For some reason, I don't have a lot of interest in seeing Godzilla 2014; the trailers look impressive, but I don't like the way Godzilla looks - kind of like a large snapping turtle..but then, I didn't think the original Godzilla looked that great, and this appears to be based on this version.....
    It had a lot more to do with it being a huge Jurassic Park ripoff and having very little thematically in common with Godzilla. It wasn't a bad film. Just wasn't Godzilla.

    Godzilla's also about this menacing almost force of nature that is unstoppable. If he's the antagonist in the film he should be wiping out the city, demolishing everything, using his atomic breath to set the world ablaze, everything in his path completely annihilated. It should take near an act of god to stop him. Godzilla's a monster, not a dinosaur.

    I like the 98 film as a disaster movie, not really Godzilla

    It was lots of fun. Marvel even collected all twenty-four original issues into an ESSENTIALS collection back in 2006.

    Seeing this image makes me wish that Marvel would release the 20 issues of Shogun Warriors in a collection. I loved that comic as a kid.

    What are some of your most memorable bizarre/quirky/etc moments not involving the Big G in the Godzilla franchise?

    For me, there's the New York scene in Final Wars as well as the scene in Godzilla vs. The Smog Monster with the fishhead people in the disco.

    i heard they tried to remake The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms but couldn't get the money so they used the name Godzilla. no sure if true though.

    It's a bad movie. Really bad characters, really bad acting, a stupid story where the military is a bigger threat with conventional weapons than Godzilla because they're unbelievably inept, Godzilla 'hiding' in the middle of New York, ect.

    I never understood how you can't find a giant lizard in Manhattan.

    You've never seen Godzilla vs. Destoroyah from start to finish? Try that one. The '98 film really does view like a remake of something else. The "Baby Zillas" sequence was a tremendous embarrassment.

    I finally was able to watch Godzilla:Final Wars today. Holy shit, that was the most ridiculously awesome movie I've watched since Sharknado. It did have some pacing problems in places and a few plot holes , but the action scenes were damn fun.

    While I Felt Indeed the Alien-Humanoid Villains where more over the Top Goofy then usually indeed, Godzilla IMO in Final Wars was the Most Awesome I have Ever Seen him in a Movie, he OWNED Each and Every Monster he Fought, in other words, he was the BOSS of the Movie, More then Normal and that is saying something!

    He was Faster, Smarter, More Clever and used his Fire Breath Much more often to good use, Godzilla in Final Wars was just Big-G at his Best IMO!
