I just feel like a lot of fans act like this movie did a drive-by on them while running over their pets, when I just found it inoffensive and alright.
I feel the same. It's lacking in overall quality, but has a few small successes.
Even a man who is pure at heart and says his prayers by night, may become a wolf when the wolfbane blooms, and the autumn moon is bright.

Life! Do you hear me?! Give my creation Liiiife!

The character's name is Dobashi, and the actor is Akiji Kobayashi.
Tokyo, a smoldering memorial to the unknown, an unknown which at this very moment still prevails and could at any time lash out with its terrible destruction anywhere else in the world.

This is my definitive ‘meh’ Godzilla movie.

This movie suffers from sever identity crisis. Even before I knew the behind the scenes stuff, I member thinking just what was this movie?

Was it a Mothra remake? Was it a Godzilla vs. Mothra movie? Godzilla vs. Battra? Battra vs. Mothra? It seemed to shapeshift into all of them constantly it gave me a headache.

If Godzilla vs Hedorah follows Silent Spring, this follows Ferngully.

I think Ferngully is better compared to Rebirth of Mothra.
