In 1954, Toho unleashed Gojira upon Japan, and the world has never been the same. Join us as we watch both the original Gojira, as well as the 2014 Godzilla, directed by Gareth Edwards. This episode is brought to you by Hiding In Plain Sight.
Battle: Godzilla takes on a new monster…. or does he?
Film: Godzilla: Final Wars (2004)
The number of monsters and super-soldiers fighting in Final Wars is ridiculous. But the award has to go to Godzilla and Monster X. The energy effects are the best in the series, and Monster X has quite a secret. It morphs into Ghidorah. Well, Kaiser Ghidorah, as I’m told. Whatever the name, this giant monster battle is great. See it!
Toho’s version of Kong looks as if it was designed by someone who had never seen a picture of a gorilla before, instead relying on descriptions supplied by four-year-olds. With a face a mother would think twice before loving, Kong is something to behold. It’s tough to root for the guy, really.
Godzilla was one bad monster until his son arrived, and humanized the whole franchise. I love Godzilla. I really can’t handle Minilla, however, and the costume is atrocious. I’m not saying any more than most Godzilla fans also say, but I’ll add my voice to the chorus. Uggh!
