Ok, that was funny.

It's also getting a Rifftrax, probably a live one.

Nostalgia Critic did a hilarious review of that movie.

I love Honest Trailers.

texdent: I love Honest Trailers.


Yeah, I just wish they wouldn't clutter up my youtube subscriptions with their other unlikeable nerds talking about bad movies in uninteresting ways.

I will admit to having paid to see that movie in the theater.

/Spoiler alert: it sucked.

I liked it, I like everything!  :D

I liked Zilla's design, but it was not a good Godzilla movie at all.

I agree. If they had used that monster, perhaps on a different scale, in a different movie, it would have been much better.

I can't even remember the resolution, just that they had the unmitigated balls to try to set up a sequel at the end.

I didn't know the Japanese did a Godzilla where he killed crapzilla. I'm going to have to look that one up.

I'm pretty sure that was "Godzilla: Final Wars".  It's a cameo that takes up about 15 seconds from beginning to end.

Saw this yesterday, I too love Honest trailers, their recent one on Attack of the clones is hilarious as well.

I saw the Godzilla movie in theaters and was entertained even though the story wasnt that great.

In August, based on their FB page.  Sharknado in July, Godzilla in August.

Wasn't as bad as pacific rim at least. Especially for being made in '1988' as the article says...

1. 1998, who cares what some uproxx content theft says?
2.  At least pacific rim had likable characters(I've heard) and a plot.

Honest Trailers.  Well, my work day is shot.

DSF6969: Honest Trailers.  Well, my work day is shot.


Between Honest Trailers, How It Should Have Ended, and Everything Wrong With I don't get much done when I go home at night. Just fantastic. I hope the Honest Trailers dude does more game trailers. Those are also great.

So, Cloverfield then.

The trailer says, "If you want a Godzilla movie really bad....we have a really bad Godzilla movie".

The single best thing about honest trailers is the end of the videos when he reads suggestions of phrases to say in his trailer voice. This is not because the suggestions are good, in fact many of them are stupid, this is because he doesn't correct the typos, he reads them as they are typed which is very entertaining to me. I just love the thought of somebody seeing their comment and getting excited only to hear the mangled garbage that they typed.

I know I'm glad I'm not the only one. I think my favorite one is "I am the how knocks" I crack up every time I see it.

I hope it goes better than their attempt to secure the rights to Riff on Twilight. I donated to that kickstart project only to see it amended to riffing on Starship Troopers. The real kick in the pants was that I couldn't make the live show and they weren't allowed to do a VOD version, so that was money wasted.

I wish them luck, this time. Hopefully they've learned a better way of doing this after the last attempt.

You know what always bugged me about this movie?  You can see it in the trailer, the giant footprints they find in the beginning.  Look at how sharp the edges are, they are obviously cut out of the ground, not smashed into it.  Also, I still have my Taco-Bell Godzilla cup holder in my car.  I used it for years.

Someone lied to you.

The 1998 movie was okay as a giant monster movie.  Where it failed was in trying to be a Godzilla movie.

If it was just "monster movie" it would have been fine; it just wasn't a Godzilla movie.

/"Cloverfield", similarly wasn't a monster movie; it was a disaster movie

Yep. Cloverfield was definitely a better movie overall, and a decent disaster movie (and I also liked the design for Clover), but it would have taken major rewrites to fix Godzilla '98.

I love how they intentionally made Zilla look so cheap compared to Godzilla.
