The 1998 Godzilla
Godzilla is still an almost universally recognizable symbol for awesome in the world today, especially after the success of 2014’s Godzilla reboot. Fans may remember though, that back in 1998 the previous attempt for The King of the Monsters to take over American cinema failed miserably. Fans and critics didn’t take to the newly designed version of Godzilla, mostly because the film was terrible. In any case, that version of the monster has all but vanished, because we’d all rather just forget that it happened.
