‘Godzilla’

by Mark Schilling

Director: Roland Emmerich

Language: English

A new 4K mastered Blu-ray of “Godzilla,” the 1998 Hollywood reworking of the seminal 1954 Japanese monster movie, was released on July 16. Reviled by Godzilla fans upon its original release, this CGI extravaganza directed by Roland Emmerich did not spawn the planned film series, though Guillermo del Toro’s “Pacific Rim” might be called a lineal descendant — and is getting a kinder reception from the kaiju freaks whose older brothers trashed Emmerich’s creation.
