    Watching Godzilla films are my fondest memories of being with my brother. He became an uber G-fan over the years and while my nostalgia was limited to a handful of books and some vintage vinyl toys, I still reconnect to my youth through these films. GMK was a later-day Godzilla film (I grew up on the Showa period like Smog Monster and Megalon) and so is in a period of a different Godzilla. And even though the filmmakers were trying…

    I kind of liked when Godzilla 1985 brought the King of the Monsters back to his "Disinterested Force of Nature" mindset (from his "basically a superhero" phase). GMK goes straight past this and turns Godzilla into a soulless, vengeful killing machine.

    And honestly: Bravo. This Godzilla is a fucking MONSTER with a capital M-O-N-S-T-E-R. Everything from his look (now featuring pupilless, blank eyes!) and his entrance into the movie (interrupting a well-mannered teenage house party and crushing them like bugs)…

    Quizás mi favorita de la saga Millenium, por la especial crueldad ante los humanos, y la invonación de cambiar los roles, Godzilla es la fuerza destructora y King Ghidorah un guardián de la naturaleza.

    Let's get this out of the way: I wish Godzilla's opponents were Baragon, Anguirus and Varan, as Shusuke Kaneko intended before Toho's cowardice got the better of them.

    I'm not sure why Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack (now there's a mouthful) is considered to be one of the series' darkest. It's often intentionally funny (taking a photograph with Baragon - disappointingly not possessing the power to shoot beams from his mouth - approaching, Godzilla sporting a…

    Once again because WHY NOT and also because the new Godzilla PS4 gamesoft is out today and I am pretty keen to feel that Dual Shock rumble with each stomp — as any monster in the entire Godzilla filmography. It's the simple things in life, or something.

    Mothra died too fast. It was kind of odd seeing the monsters were people in suits, yet there was CGI for other things. I haven't seen all the Godzilla movies, but this one is pretty damn good.

    Shusuke Kaneko(NECRONOMICON,GAMERA:GUARDIAN OF THE UNIVERSE) tries his shot at directing a Godillza film and is actually spectacular at the results he conjures in this subversive reboot of the series that has Godzilla in full fledged heel/villain monster mode(complete with glowing white EVIL DEAD-esque eyes)as he rises to destroy all of Japan,but three mythical guardian monsters in the forms of Baragon(the villain beast of FRANKENSTEIN CONQUERS THE WORLD),Mothra,and King Ghidorah(appearing this time as a good guy) awake from their eternal rest…

    Sometimes you come home from a day at work and you just need to put your feet up and enjoy a film you know you love. Still my favorite Godzilla film, barring mention of the more psychedelic kitsch of entries like Hedorah (aka The Smog Monster), GMK is thrilling monster mayhem only surpassed by Shūsuke Kaneko's own Gamera trilogy. It's among the most brutally leftist kaiju films, features one of the entire franchise's most prominent and independent leading ladies (the…

    Ignoring the quite poor lip synching and translation (but decent enough voice work), the movie is pretty decent and doesn't take as long as some to get to the action. Rather fun and more spectacular than many of the Godzilla series, this one has Godzilla taking out individuals in almost comical moments as well as razing entire districts. I also really liked the Ghidorah design in this - so much like what you'd consider an Eastern dragon design that is usual with this.

    A rather out-of-canon entry, but one that I love deeply. I find myself wondering if this film is a direct response to the resurgent Gamera; if the turtle is going to be a guardian and friend, why don't we return Godzilla to the role of implacable enemy?

    Apart from my fondness for it, it has a script which frequently makes sense even with the appearance of mysticism and allegory, rather good effects without giving up on smothering stuntmen in rubber suits, human interactions which are generally pretty good. That earns high marks in the realm of kaiju eiga.
