    What a great reboot.

    It fully embraces the cheesiness of the originals - there were multiple scenes that still looked like a man in a rubber suit knocking over miniatures - while updating it for the modern day with some good effects.

    It's the first Godzilla movie since possibly the original to have a compelling human story which is a welcome addition. Also, updating the "Godzilla" metaphor from nuclear weapons to the potential dangers of nuclear power post-Fukushima was a nice touch.

    Shin Godzilla gives us a governments eye view of how damn frustrating it is to deal with a kaiju in Japan.

    Regarding the monster himself, this movie takes a fresh approach that shouldn't be spoiled if you care about those kinds of things. This is a pretty good movie to introduce someone to the series, as it stands alone and covers a lot of the themes of the Godzilla films as a whole.
