    When this movie was made, the Japanese film industry was heading straight downhill due to a number of factors, and SFX films like the Godzilla series faced major cutbacks. Jun Fukuda is forced to stage a Destroy All Monsters-style tag team bout between four giant beasts on a fractional budget, resulting in tons of recycled footage from earlier adventures (Mothra even makes an accidental cameo for a few seconds.) Even the music score is assembled from previous Akira Ifukube tracks.…

    Like GvHedorah, it has an alright storyline.  A little too James Bondish, but the series seems to suffer from that in the '60s.  Story didn't integrate with the monsters very well, however, so after about the halfway point, you're sort of sitting around waiting for the conclusion.  Monster battle was very entertaining.

    A comic-artist boy and a kung-fu girl try to terminate a cockroach-alien invasion while Godzilla and a cyborg-monster deliver on the title in another personal favorite.

    I don't think I'd seen this one before. Lots of fun.

    The good news, for me at least, is that Gigan was basically the monster I would have created if given the opportunity: Scythe hands! Chest table saw! Scythe mandibles + beak + horn! Three dorsal fins/wings! A single red cyber-eye! And he fucks Godzilla up for a bit in this.

    The bad news? Pretty much everything else. Alien cockroaches want to take over Earth and (yet again) have mind controlled King Ghidorah to come over and destroy stuff. Did every…

    Cockroaches from space come to earth and build an amusement park devoted to Godzilla which is actually a cover for a radio tower whose signal will summon space monsters Gigan and King Ghidorah to Earth to destroy it, while simultaneously suppressing Godzilla and Anguirus with laser beams.... Godzilla movies got really weird in the 1970's. As long as you know what you are in for - you'll be fine.

    Gigan so cool he appeared two movies straight back-to-back. This movie, not so much.

    The plot is a poorly recycled facsimilie of Invasion of Astro Monster, but it was still pretty enjoyable. Gigan looks like a Sesame Street character with a totally Heavy Metal make-over, but I loved his look and design. This was undoubtedly lowest common denominator Godzilla brand schlock, but God Help Me I still loved it.

    Desperate Aliens invade Earth as they prepare to destroy the planet and rebuild it to their homeworld.

    "Godzilla vs. Gigan" showcases fantastic monster battles, introduces one of the chief villains of the Godzilla franchise and explores the characters and even its monstrous Alien creatures.

    An ok Godzilla. Godzilla gets jacked up in his fights with Gigan and King Ghidrah, but Big G has an ally in Anguirus (who also takes a beating as well).

    This movie feels like a rehashing of some previous Godzilla flicks, but my memory may have faded over time.

    Some goofy scenes with a Godzilla theme park and Godzilla speaking.

    Another environmental PSA from the good folks of Godzilla-world.
