    Godzilla: Final Wars (2004)

    The final entry in the series (for now) starts off so strong and has a really awesome opening credit sequence which tricked me into thinking this was going to be one of the best. It's not. It's okay, it just has SO much going on, and most of what's going on isn't really that good. The movie focuses so much on all of the humans, mutants and aliens, that the monsters, even though there's a shit-load of them, are kind of pushed off to the side. Fight scenes between the human actors go on and on while monster screen-time really starts to pale in comparison. When there are monster fights, they rely so heavily on CGI that I was wanting more rubber suits. Oh, and Godzilla fighting the American Godzilla from the 1998 film, who approved that choice??
