Say what you will about the film but the soundtrack released with it was pretty great. Some great 90s music on it

I just watched this again yesterday, and I actually do enjoy this movie at certain points. Is it a good Godzilla movie? No. Is it even a good movie? No. I almost wish it'd not been a Godzilla movie it probably would have done better.

They didn't even include tracks from the film. :lol:

Wrong. "Opening Titles" and "Looking for Clues" are the last two tracks on the disc.

It's only two though. It should've included all the tracks from the film. I hate when that happens.

It's an album with songs "inspired by" the film... not the soundtrack (besides the fact that most of them are overheard in the film). Soundtrack was unfortunately released almost a decade after the film. I own the 3-disc set and it's gorgeous

I gotta give this film credit, Godzilla's first arrival in New York was really well done, and is still cool to this day imo. Not showing him in full, and from low angles helped with that.

I'm working on a personal review of this movie and I wanted to get my facts straight before I finished. What was Toho's honest opinion toward this film when it was released? I'm sure they were disappointed, but I want to be sure.

I have no absolute sources, but despite approving Zilla's design and presumably the various scripts, I think they fairly openly disliked it. I imagine that's more due to the low reception and numbers it garnered, rather than the film's quality in and of itself.

Since then, though, they've pretty commonly ignored Zilla as a character (limited Japanese merchandise, acknowledgement), besides either minor or 'joke' appearances. All things considered, it's safe to say they've concluded on disliking the movie as a whole.

Why does there always need to be a "TOHO's this" as if TOHO were a cluttering hive-mind of insectoids. There is bound to be a difference of opinion between its members, I'm sure (and a historical difference, too -- it isn't always helmed by the same people). On the money side, the project did not meet the intended expectations but TOHO got their good slice (both incoming from the rights and the box office itself, not to mention it served as a launching platform for new film releases of theirs). They never shied away from it and it was also included in the 60th anniversary Godzilla film blu-ray line-up.

I never understood the obsession with "that's a lot of fish." It's a harmless line. Pointless, maybe, but nowhere near as catastrophic as Doug Walker made it out to be. I never even saw it brought up as a criticism until his review. There's so much more that deserves criticism in the movie than that line.

Not to defend Doug Walker, but he claimed in later videos that old NC was all about trying to force memes and stupid inside jokes. I have no doubt that's what this was.

That's fair. I think it irritated me more that it caught on and people started treating it like a major flaw. I still see it all over the place. It's such a minor thing.

This movie came out when I was 6 years old, and I remember just being so stoked that we got an American made Godzilla flick. Looking back, it's a bad 90's movie and a worse Godzilla movie.

I've always been confused by Toho's approval/disapproval. They approved the design and I've heard they loved it, they approved everything about the script, but then poop on it when it came out. I guess that's just shrouded in mystery and no one will ever truly know how they feel.

It's easier for Toho to put all the blame on Sony then acknowledge their hand in it
