Science Fiction & Fantasy movie directed by Roland Emmerich

As "gigantic monster reptile attacks New York" movies go, you've got to admit thatGodzilladelivers the goods, although its critical drubbing and box-office disappointment were arguably deserved. It's a shameless, uninspired crowd pleaser … see full wiki

Yuck.  As someone who enjoyed the Godzilla movies a lot when I was younger (even if a lot of them seem rather cheesy as an adult), this movie is a total disgrace to the Godzilla name.  Roland Emmerich totally changed up Godzilla for the worst in this movie (he gets killed by conventional military weapons, which everyone knows NEVER kill Godzilla), and it doesn't help that the story and acting totally suck.      Watching this movie once at the age of ten was way, …

I have a feeling that Godzilla is going to fall into the same camp of "cinema non grata" as ID4, for films is based in Manhattan which revel in the spectular demolition of iconic buildings are going to be in questionable taste for some time yet, even if released well before September 2001. In this case we even have a self-agrandising mayor, a pending election campaign and frequent references to "ground zero" (in this case the monster's lair).But they're the only points of interest in this very silly …
