I'm still waiting for a great Godzilla movie. I can watch all the classic man-in-suit Toho films for their kitsch factor, but they are hardly very convincing. I remember being very excited when I heard the folks behind Independence Day would be updating the franchise, but then the design of the monster, cartoonish characters and silly Godzilla-babies side plot ultimately undermined it for me. Really, the closest I have seen to cool Godzilla action is the film Cloverfield. Reading reports of the latest Comicon, it seems like the teaser for the new Godzilla film took everyone by surprise and was one of the big hits of the convention. This has me cautiously optimistic, and I hope that footage is available on the web soon, because I am dying to see it.
