GODZILLA MINUS ONE Director Finds the Good in Roland Emmerich’s 1998 GODZILLA Film

I remember leaving the cinema with my friends after seeing the director Roland Emmerichthe 1998 version of Godzilla wondering what the hell we just watched. It was a truly terrible movie, and the funny thing is, Hollywood still hasn’t learned from his mistakes! They still keep telling bullshit stories about Godzilla!

Godzilla minus one director Takashi Yamazaki, however, manages to find the good in the film. During a recent interview with MovieMaker, the director spoke about 1998 Godzilla movie, saying:

“1998 Godzilla was pretty well put together and was a fun movie, but I can also understand people saying this isn’t Godzilla. I think, being a Kaiju-horror type film, it’s pretty well executed. And to their credit, I think it was the first time Godzilla had been rendered in a digital context and methodology, so it was a huge achievement for the time.”

He might be the first person I’ve heard say anything good about that movie! It’s definitely a her thing. The director went on to talk about what Legendary is doing Godzillasaid:

“And as far as Legendary’s Godzilla franchise goes, I think what these films have done is really explore the diversity and the different perspectives that you can see across the world and the Godzilla IP. Adaptability, if you will. If you look at the more recent Toho films or the Japanese films Godzilla, Shin Godzilla and Godzilla Minus One, there is a very serious, almost darker tone and theme that is explored. But at the same time, the fact that Hollywood/Legendary Godzilla can coexist and take on a very different interpretation for Godzilla shows how developed and diverse the IP or franchise can be.”

Yes, but you can still have fun and play Godzilla film with a strong script and story. Unfortunately, Legendary is lacking from a writing and storytelling perspective. THE Godzilla the movies they made could have been great! But to make them they lowered their narrative standards.

What do you think of 1998? Godzilla movie!?
