Honest Trailers – Godzilla (1998)

Everything Wrong With X-men Origins: Wolverine In 14 Minutes Or Less

People like to call The Last Stand the worst X-Men movie, but that’s only because those people didn’t see X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Even if it was a great film, it would have some sins. But… it’s not a great film… so…

  1. The Godzilla Honest Trailer was good as usual… might check out the song by P Diddy.

  2. Don’t. Just check out Kashmir by Led Zeppelin and you have the only good thing of Diddy’s song in its original form.

    • I’m still p*ssed at Jimmy Page for allowing that. My least favorite rapper destroying my favorite song by my favorite band. Of course, Jimmy also plays guitar in the video.

  3. To think some 16 years ago in 1998 a remake of Godzilla was the big film of the summer, how times have changed.. I’m looking forward to seeing the Gareth Edwards version however.

    The two towers reference was a little bit silly to be fair though as it was three years before. Tut tut honest trailer people.

  4. I saw Godzilla tonight.

    It’s a dud. No emotion and no suspense.

    The 98 version is better, that bad.

    • There is now possible way in this universal in the dimension we currently inhabit that a move could be worse than Godzilla 1998. It is a physical impossibility. I don’t think you actually saw Godzilla ’98.

      • freakin autocorrect….

        *no possible way in this universe…

        • Exactly my thoughts… until tonight.
