The last time Hollywood tried to make a Godzilla movie in 1998, the result was panned. TriStar was forced to abandon plans for the sequel that was teased at the end of the film.  The screen rights eventually ended up at Legendary Pictures—Legendary believed enough time had passed to return to Godzilla as a blockbuster property.  Legendary and Warner Bros. have proven surprisingly successful at changing the discussion surrounding Godzilla, starting with the the unique and effective teaser trailer.  Later stages of the marketing played up the creative vision of director Gareth Evans as well as the monster’s iconic stature in pop cultureGodzilla beat the odds to open this Friday on a wave of hopeful buzz.

Now you’ve seen the movie and read Matt’s review.  It’s time for you to weigh in.  What did you think of the reboot?  Does it make up for the bad taste the 1998 adaptation left in your mouth?  Does this Godzilla live up to the franchise reputation?  Sound off in the comments after the jump.
