The Rifftrax guys went over their goal and they got the rights to do this. It'll be in August. Since the campaign is still going on, if they get to a new goal, they will make Anaconda their next live riff.

Man, I am SO going to this.

So uh... what's with this small wave of people recently coming out of the wood work trying to absolve this piece of crap into some kind of modern classic?

The crappiness of this movie has less to do with its treatment of Godzilla than with it just being a terrible film through and through.

I've heard bits of this here and there. The movie and that nonsense about it being better than G2014 is dumb.

The "this is nowhere near as bad as people say" group is the one that for some reason bugs me most.

The other groups are just flat-out WRONG and so it's easier to dismiss them...

The "it's not that bad" people are the ones who can be the most infuriating. They come at you with "You just hate it because it's called Godzilla" and "Get over it already" stuff and it's like...this movie SUCKS for reasons that go WAY beyond "Godzilla"

I like the movie, but I know it's bad. Agree with the argument that it's a pretty good movie until after Godzilla's first landfall. After that it's just pure crap. The only character that I care about in Jean Reno, but it's just because he's Jean Reno. Nothing is taken seriously in the movie, or at least seriously enough to make it seem dramatic, and every one is comic relief which just gets irritating really quick.

The monster itself though, I like. The design in interesting, and I do consider it a Godzilla variant. If the creature acted more like the Godzilla we all know and love (nuke breath, fights the military, and only taken out by super science) I think this version of the character would have been more warmly welcomed into the fandom. Although one of the faults of this design, or the implementation of it, is that it is not expressive. The Showa series was expressive from the actor's movements in the suit, the Heisei from the animatronics in the head. This design can open its mouth, and blink its eyes. It's very much a lizard face, no emotive ability.

It's also not good even if it isn't a Godzilla movie. It's a complete piece of crap, with or without the name.

At this point, I think this movie is interesting to watch as a historical curiosity. It's an excessive 90s movie, and the glee at which the military erroneously blows up New York's landmarks is pretty much unseen now in modern blockbusters post-9/11.

I think I get more entertainment out of it than Godzilla vs SpaceGodzilla.

Ok I can get kids growing up with GINO being their favorite movie because its 16 years old and nostalgia and all that. I also get the people trying to be contrarian because apparently having unpopular opinions makes you cool and edgy. But what drives me nuts is people saying GINO was a much better film than a lot of the showa films which I've been seeing a lot on the facebook Godzilla groups. That's just ignorant imo. Its like spitting on the Adam West Batman and saying Batman and Robin is the better film. While those movies are considered cheesy now, they were really popular back then where as GINO almost killed the franchise.


I have almost nothing serious to add to any conversation ever.

It's not just that. A lot of these older Showa era productions were labors of love, and one can see that during the production. Even Jun Fukuda, who preferred to make action cinema than Godzilla movies, still could put together a better effort in his productions than what was seen in Godzilla 98, a movie that was practically billed as BETTER THAN OLD "OH GODZILLA! WHAT TERRIBLE LANGUAGE!".

Very cynical production.

...So who all went to see it last night? It was the first Rifftrax Live I have seen, and I had a blast.

It was actually a little surreal at first, seeing GODZILLA on the big screen again after 16 years. I honestly do enjoy the buildup to Godzilla's reveal, and his initial attack on NYC - but man, this movie is tedious otherwise.

Rifftrax was a blast. The riffs were great. The movie is still awful. I actually think its gotten WORSE since it hasn't aged well whatsoever.

It is quite a puzzler that the film seems to think the audience would be more interested in Nick's theory being vindicated and Audrey becoming a reporter than, you know, giant monster.

It's Matthew Broderick's terrifying theme music!
