Godzilla was born in the heart of a nuclear blast, a terror of mankinds own creation come back to unleash the fury of a nature plagued by the disease called humanity. Only one thing could destroy the monster, another terror of mankind's hands, the Oxygen Destroyer. As a terror greater than Godzilla himself comsumed the monster, it let out one more terrible screech and the flesh was melted from his bones.
Godzilla spawned 27, soon to be 28 sequels, and plenty of spin-offs. All of those sequels were great in there own respects. Older folks probably grew up watching "King Kong vs. Godzilla" and "Destroy all Monsters," and many of the "Showa" series starting in 1954 and ending in 1975.
However, in 1998, a remake of the original film was made in America. Godzilla 1998, commonly known among fans as GINO (Godzilla In Name Only) was absolutely horrible for a Godzilla film. The monster who is the main event doesn't look, act, or remind me in the slightest way of the Godzilla we all know and love. GINO has great SFX, sure, but the FX are nothing but a cheap way for getting us to "Oooh and "Aaah" our way into buying that the movie is actually good. This film doesn't deserve the title of Godzilla, and should not even be considered a Godzilla film. The ONLY reason I gave this movie two stars was because of the fact that it was a generally good monster movie, even though it was terrible compared to most Godzilla films (with some exceptions such as "Godzilla's Revenge" and "Godzilla vs. Megalon")
