* ContrivedCoincidence: A frequent theme in his work, particularly in ''2012'', ''Independence Day'' and ''The Day After Tomorrow''. In short, it's best not to think to hard about how his heroes make their way towards survival; just be happy that they do.

Then, he worked on the 1998 {{Remake}} of ''Film/{{Godzilla|1998}}'', or Godzilla: InNameOnly (GINO) as some fans called it. It used clever ViralMarketing, describing the size of the monster without giving it away. When the actual film came out, it wasn't received well. RogerEbert and Gene Siskel, who criticized his previous movies, pointed out his TakeThat in the film, and was displeased to find that he didn't get eaten or stepped on by the giant lizard. [[NeverLiveItDown Ebert still held a grudge to his death over this]]. [[PopularityPolynomial Over time]], though, Godzilla fans have considered the movie to be better than less-enjoyable installments in the series.

[[StraightGay Emmerich is openly gay]], and in 2006, he pledged $150,000 to the Legacy Project, a campaign dedicated to gay and lesbian film preservation. Emmerich made the donation on behalf of Outfest, making it the largest gift in the festival's history. He owns homes in Los Angeles, Manhattan, London and Stuttgart. He likes to decorate his homes in a self-described [[KitchCollection "outlandish" manner]], adorning them with rare Hollywood memorabilia, murals and portraits of dictators and Communist figures, and World War II-era relics. His extensive collection of artwork includes a painting of Jesus Christ wearing a Katharine Hamnett-styled t-shirt during his crucifixion, prints of Alison Jackson's works of a Princess Diana lookalike making obscene gestures and engaging in sex acts, a wax sculpture of Pope John Paul II laughing as he reads his own obituary, and a Photoshopped image of Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in a homoerotic pose. His three favorite movies are ''Film/ThePoseidonAdventure'', ''Film/TheToweringInferno'' and ''Film/{{Earthquake}}'', all disaster movies. [[note]]Probably not coincidentally, the first two films were produced by Irwin Allen, to which his work is often compared.[[/note]]
