The original Japanese creators made several "versions" of Godzilla....the American movie was simply another "version".
No....I don't think it was the worst version I have ever seen.
Well then that ends that. I thought out of all the the G-Films IMO the 98 version was the worst..
Don't understand what you are wanting to say there.
But I consider XM-FC one of the best comic book movies out there.
What I (and others) mean by a CBM is that it has the feel of a Comicbook. The MCU film did that perfectly. XM-FC as good as it was didn't feel like a CBM. That feel is what may make the difference between a Billion BO take and a Lower millions BO take. People buy comic books for the ride and the Avengers translated that to film and even the GA got on..
So I'll correct myself that XM-FC didn't vibe like a CBM though technically it may be.
