I loved the 2014 Godzilla by Gareth Edwards


It told an actual story, which is something the silly 98 movie failed to do with it's cartoon-ish characters and bad plot.

In the 2014 version, the monster battle scenes were awesome, the CGI was good and I liked most of the characters. There were roars, destruction, plus a slug out within a major U.S. city. What else do you people want? Do you need to feel the searing heat from Godzilla's breath to think a Godzilla movie is worthy?

Seriously, I don't understand the hate for this movie when you have pure "grade A crap" like the Pacific Rim movies. And don't even get me started on how bad the last two Jurassic World movies have been. Garbage.

I like this film a lot, in spite of its cardboard characters and cliché-ridden script.

The camera work is so good it actually makes the film much better than it should have been, and I've been keeping an eye on Gareth Edwards ever since. Everyone liked "Rogue One", which makes it unique among the new Star Wars films, so I think he's going to have a big career.
