    Jurassic World basically tried to remake this but left out the best part, ALIENS TRYING TO USE KAIJU TO DESTROY EARTH.

    This one is pretty underrated in my opinion. I had never seen it because I usually skip over this era of Zilla. It's got a whole lot of the good stuff, and by good stuff I mean Godzilla punching things.

    What can I say? This marathon is becoming pretty tedious. Love that funky Godzilla tower, and Gigan is a pretty cool monster.

    Notes while watching this:
    -Holy shit, a Godzilla theme park.
    -Oh my God, they're there's English dubbing for the monster roars.
    -Radial saw chest=best weapon ever.
    -It's very disorienting to see a Japanese hippie.
    -"I'm here!"-a giant cockroach.

    Everyone says "thanks Godzilla!" at the end but no thanks to Anguirus? He got his face split open by Gigan's tummy-saw trying to save Tokyo.

    Pretty dumb Godzilla movie, but has some of the best monsters, in my opinion. And that's all I really want, ya know?

    Somewhere between finding this film boring and loving how absolutely ridiculous the whole thing is a gauge on how I feel about this film and my rating.

    After a few disappointing entries, I was happy to finally enjoy a Godzilla film. Though it does seem as if I am in the minority with this one. I get the story is ridiculous, with a bunch of aliens making a theme park with a giant Godzilla and using tapes to control the creatures. But the fight scenes are a ton of fun here. It’s great to see King Ghidorah back and the new monster, Gigan is just fantastic. With…

    another of my favourites, though like so many of films in the series the final film would be very different from the original plans for this film which originally started as a direct sequel to “Godzilla Vs. Hedorah”, a plan soon scrapped after producer Tomoyuki Tanaka saw the results of that film, so much so that he told director Yoshimitsu Banno that he had “ruined Godzilla” and subsequently banned him from directing another Toho film again. With this in mind…

    Lesser but still enjoyable Kaiju. Gigan is frankly ridiculous in design. I was most dismayed when Godzilla started talking like he was Scooby Doo. "Ri ruv roo Raggy!".

    I'm convinced that co-writer Shinichi Sekizawa and/or director Jun Fukuda were fans of Neil Simon and Blake Edwards, possibly even Stanley Kramer. Whether or not they had access to that material prior to the creation of this film is information I have not been able to confirm, but recently, after seeing The Odd Couple for the first time and seeing some old '60s Blake Edwards classics again, I felt a connection between the styles and even comedic tone. From the…

    The sets, miniature and life sized, are wonderful, as are the suit designs. I stick by the enjoyable human story and likable cast (hell, even the villains aren't very hate-worthy) and I think the score is very effective. There are some moments of gorgeous cinematography and overall the city destruction scenes are simultaneously brutal as fuck and absolutely beautiful. Unfortunately, the super fast pace of the first half winds down around the time the monsters show up and everything really…
