Godzilla (1998) score: 49%
1998 Godzilla’s problem is that it operates as a disaster movie that features monsters, rather than a monster movie that features disaster.
This is popcorn cinema at its most basic. Characters regularly patronise us by stating their intentions out loud, and Godzilla is just a cover image for generic trashing of New York. It’s cheap and cheesy, but try not to enjoy Matthew Broderick being chased by mini Godzillas in Madison Square Garden.
