These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way.

YMMV: Godzilla (1998)
Americans Hate Tingle: The film was very much hated in Japan as much as it was in America. Kenpachiro Satsuma claimed the monster does not have the "spirit" of Godzilla. Despite that, the irony is that...
Critical Dissonance: Despite being ridiculed by Fan Dumb and critics, it made nearly three times what it cost to make, being the third highest grossing film in the world that year. The director has commented that out of all the films he directed, it was the one which parents told him their children enjoyed the most
Critical Research Failure: The US Army inquiring what a Frenchman is doing at the scene of the clawed freighter. The problem? It's in Tahiti, a French overseas territory. The US troops are the ones who shouldn't be there. No wonder the French sent their secret service after them.
The scene where the Apache helicopters chase Godzilla will make anyone familiar with them cringe or pull their hair out. For starters, the Apaches are stated to use Sidewinder missiles. They don't use those, instead using mounted FIM-92 Stinger missiles. Also, they are not the Apache's primary armament. They also would have nowhere near the power to cause the kind of destruction scene in the film, Stingers or Sidewinders. In addition, the Apaches also use laser-guided AGM-114 Hellfire missiles and unguided Hydra 70 rockets, which the pilots could have fallen back on to use with the failure of their heat-seeking weapons. While this could be glossed over for reasons of Rule of Drama, the next scene is ridiculous. The Apache's open up on where they think Godzilla is hiding using some sort of strange pair of fixed machine guns, which no Apache has. What makes this especially odd is that the 3D models of the Apaches do have "chin-mounted" chainguns. In addition to all of that, the Apache is capable of flying and using it's weapons from 10,000 feet or higher, meaning there just wasn't any good reason for their Acrophobic Bird moment.
Theropoda Allosaurus is just unbelievable. The evidence gathered has clearly indicated an animal many magnitudes larger than any Allosaurus, which maxed out at around 30 feet in length. The idea that any real paleontologist would say or suggest such a thing is complete nonsense.
In the opening montage of French scientists preparing for a nuclear test on one of French Polynesia's islands, iguanas can be seen swimming in the ocean. The problem with that is that true marine iguanas are indigenous only in the Galapagos Islands, which is about 4,200 miles to the northeast. Fiji, 2,200 miles to the west, is the only other island in that area to have iguanas, and all three species they have are land iguanas.
Ensemble Darkhorse: Animal and Phillippe are considered by quite a few as one of the few redeeming aspects of the film. Zilla himself developed into this after he was retconned into a differ kaiju from Godzilla by Toho.
Franchise Killer: One of the biggest of the Godzilla series, that after the film was released in Japan, Kenachiro Satsuma, who ended his role as the monster just barely 3 years, said the monster did not have the spirit of Godzilla. Toho would create six more films until they decided to join Legendary to overlook production of the 2014 reboot.
Harsher in Hindsight: At one point, Caiman describes Zilla's actions as "the worst act of destruction since the  World Trade Center bombing!". Ouch.
The Scrappy: Audrey. Given that her relationship with Nick already ended because she chose her career over marrying him, the fact that she proceeds to do so again by betraying the top secret information to the press, effectively ruining his career to further her own, means that the audience has no idea why Nick wants her back at the end of the film?
