What do you consider a "respectable" Godzilla movie? Godzilla of the 50's, very serious, no humor, unsympathetic killing machine, an allegory of the terrors of nuclear radiation....or Godzilla of the 60's, the misunderstood, sympathetic, sometimes humorous, lumbering beheamoth who actually saves humans from other giant critters....or the retconned Godzilla of the later decades, where they threw all but the original movie out of the continuity and made him again an unhumorous (but now slightly sympathetic creature) mindlessly destroying things? 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. Don't understand what you are wanting to say there. But I consider XM-FC one of the best comic book movies out there.
