Silver Linings Playback 6 – Godzilla (1998)


Joel Murphy and Andy McIntyre are continuing their quest to watch maligned movies in hopes of finding a silver lining.

For the month of June, they are watching blockbuster films that were meant to be the start of franchises … but weren’t.

This week, they watch the 1998 Godzilla film directed by Roland Emmerich and starring Matthew Broderick. (It also features a supporting cast of not one, not two, but three Simpsons actors.) With a soundtrack that slaps and a proven monster flick formula, it should have been a big hit … but wasn’t. However, together Joel and Andy will find its silver lining.

Theme Song: “Bankin’” by Bronson Scott
