Ever since the MCU improved the CGI industry, the world has been obsessed with as much realism in movies as possible. Several recent movies have failed at this attempt as even with their heavy budgets, the movies weren’t able to deliver on the CGI.

Godzilla Minus One is a Japanese film released by director Takashi Yamazaki around the world. Although initially released in Japan, the kaiju film gained traction all over the world for its amazing visual effects and how close to realism the monster looks. In a Twitter post, a clip from the movie was shared and fans can’t help but praise the film.

And with that praise, several fans also compared how certain movies failed at their CGI even with their big budgets. An interesting thing to note is that Godzilla Minus One was made with a budget of only $15 million!

Compared to the DCU movie The Flash, the 2023 film was made with a budget of $200 million but its CGI was blasted into oblivion. Hailing the movie as one of the worst CGI-created movies of 2023, The Flash earned a meager $270 million at the global box office.

Godzilla Minus One, however, turned out to be so good that director Gareth Edwards, who directed the 2014 reboot of Godzilla felt jealous when he was watching Godzilla Minus One.

“There were a lot of things that I thought were very new, and I was feeling jealous the whole time I was watching it…There has been repeated debate among fans over the question, ‘What is the best Godzilla movie of all time?’ I think Godzilla Minus One will definitely be named as the best Godzilla movie of all time.”
