Godzilla Recap: Tristar’s Godzilla (1998)

September 13, 2016

Our Godzilla series recap continues with the most despised entry in the series. Roland Emmerich's GODZILLA (1998)! Far and away the most divisive take on Godzilla and the most maligned entry in the series by G-Fans. But does the movie deserve this reputation? Is it as bad as everyone says? And does any of it hold up all these years later? Would it REALLY be a better movie without the "Godzilla" title? Listen and find out as Matt and Byrd dissect one of the most hated giant monster films ever made. We also touch on the animated television series sequel to the movie, as well as the unmade pitch for Godzilla 2. But first, Matt has some thoughts on the new Voltron series, and we discuss the several starts and stops that Tristar's Godzilla project had to endure before the Emmerich film was greenlit.
