Movie Review Flashback: ‘Godzilla: King of the Monsters’ Rumbles But It Also Fumbles

Tssk, tssk, tssk. Godzilla, Godzilla. Why do you always break my heart? This is one of the most epic creations in movie history.

Counting Down My 20 Favorite Trailers: #9-‘Godzilla’

I’m not a huge Godzilla fan but I still remember how epic the teaser for 2014’s Godzilla was. My sister, my father, and I watched the teaser and just knew we had to see the movie. Turns out, the movie wasn’t that great. In fact, it was pretty terrible! However, after revisiting this teaser, I can’t deny its brilliance. Here it is.

Chills! It was so dire, so epic, and our fleeting glances of the mighty Godzilla was perfectly put into the film. This is a trailer worth remembering, and thus, it has reached the ninth spot on this top 20 favorite trailers list.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a splendid day.
