We can only hope for the long awaited Godzilla vs Gorgo and a Rifftrax commentary soon to follow.

Dare we hope that Godzilla vs. Megalon and Godzilla vs. the Sea Monster MST3K episodes might become allowable?

Well, Shin Godzilla did show that you can do something new (and terrifying) with the material, so I remain hopeful. It could even work with the “trapped ensemble” motif he’s used to great effect in Assault On Precinct 13, Prince Of Darkness, The Thing, and The Fog, focusing the action on a stranded group of survivors with Godzilla being the overwhelming and unstoppable threat.

They pretty much already did that with Cloverfield though.

Yah, but Carpenter’s characters would be more three-dimensional and likeable, at least.
