GvD has the Heisei Series' typically great optical animation and some well-composed and striking shots, but I think it also has the worst overall SFX *execution* of its series (i.e., more such shots than any of its six predecessors).

Regarding Kawakita's love of composites, I think GvSG has the best of those shots from his tenure (Godzilla approaching Birth Island and Godzilla's various stops in Kyushu).

...King Ghidorah is only excluded because of M-11, isn't it?
And the Godzillasaurus, and Ghidorah’s flying scenes, and the greenscreen effects, off the top of my head.

Maybe the shots where he was stomping soldiers on the beach, sure. I remember the rest looking pretty reasonable, though...
