I wouldn't call this a situation like Godzilla 2000, where the American version seems superior, or the original where the Japanese version trumps its American remake. Instead, with Return of Godzilla / Godzilla 1985, it really comes down to what you're looking for in the film. Each film bring something different to the table.
Is this like the second time we've agreed on this something? Still, it's a messy film regardless of which cut you go with. Return of Godzilla is one of the Godzilla films I'm extremely conflicted about. There's some elements I really enjoy and there's other elements that I find difficult to ignore.
