It seems like every summer flick ”borrows” something — a line, an image — from a Steven Spielberg movie, be it ”Jaws” or ”Jurassic Park.” ”Godzilla,” for example, had more cribs than a maternity ward. (Watch how those baby Godzillas dent steel doors, raptor-style.) But just because ”Godzilla” director Roland Emmerich saw ”Jurassic Park,” don’t expect Spielberg to return the favor. ”The only ‘Godzilla’ I saw was the one with Raymond Burr cut into the Japanese version,” Spielberg says. ”I purposely stayed away from seeing ‘Godzilla,’ because I didn’t want to get anything between me and my memory of my favorite Godzilla movie of all time.”
