Godzilla 1998 And Cloverfield Get Torn Apart For Your Amusement

To say we’re a bit excited about the release of Godzilla this Friday would be an exercise in understatement even bigger than the giant lizard himself. But that wasn’t always so. After all, Hollywood had tried to put its stamp on Godzilla before…and it did not turn out well. If you’re too young to remember Roland Emmerich’s craptacular 1998 take on Godzilla, well, I envy you, sir or madam. I remember seeing it in the theater and being genuinely stunned at how bad it was. I mean, this movie cost around $130 million to make. Was there nobody anywhere in the chain of command who looked at the mess and thought, “Well, there’s nothing to be done, it’s Old Yeller time.” But if you’re curious about Emmerich’s Godzilla, we’ll save you the stomach acid of actually watching it.

When the potential span of your subject matter encompasses the entirety of space, time, and existence, it makes sense that science fiction often goes big. Giant robots. Giant starships. Giant monsters. But with all that enormity running amok across the genre, how’s a guy to keep track of precisely how big any of it is? Why, with the handy-dandy chart below, created by DeviantArtist lexinator117 and dubbed “Size Comparison of EVERYTHING.” Well, perhaps not “EVERYTHING,” but still enough things to be entertaining.

You can go see the full, ginormous image here, or you can the chart out in chunks below (via Popsci), along with our occasional commentary. You can also click each of the images below for larger versions. It’s also worth noting that Popsci’s editing seems to have left a few of the subjects trimmed out, but you can see the full-size image for where they fit in.

From smallest to largest (with a few exceptions noted), we’ve got:
