The classic Godzilla themes popping up in later movies that were being scored by other composers would take me right out of the films.
The issue I have with Godzilla's theme isn't that they just pop up from the void. It is that they aren't expanded upon.
Godzilla's theme has become fixed in the series. Its an easy, recognizable theme.
If you play Pokemon, you'll notice that there is a central, underlying theme to a lot of their main themes and battle music. I've noticed that its just a few notes, but its there. If they were to do that with Godzilla, I wouldn't mind.
Lets go back to the baroque and classic and jazz: experiment a little and just cut loose.
