"But in terms of suits and atomic breath, Showa loses."
Funny that the atomic breath in the 90's heisei series didn't create explosions but 4th of July sparks. Koichi Kawakita had a much higher budget and failed at capitalizing on it. He used the Bandai Destoroyah toys...His effects were too sparky and glittery to be honest. Very rarely did we see the monsters with wings actually flap them. They looked like cardboard floating and gliding in the air. That's not using your craftsmanship to the fullest in special effects. Just because the suits may be better in terms of looks doesn't mean better effects.

I think Godzilla and Gamera should be in a production together, and I think Gamera should win. I love the OG Big G, don't get me wrong, and I think he's gonna last a lot longer as a property than Gamera, but I feel that a movie fight ought to have the flying turtle win it out.
Not only does Gamera deserve a win for once, but spiritually, I think him winning would set off a chain reaction, potentially bring the Gamera property back into the limelight as a character on par with Godzilla.
Oh! I got one! Godzillla vs. Gigan is one of my absolute favorites.
Showa series is the best. It aged a lot better than the Heisei series IMHO.
Godzilla Final Wars is super enjoyable. They went completely overboard with it, and I love it.
Godzilla 2000 and GMK were pretty dope, but Megaguirus and the Kiryu movies seem like they tried too hard to be cool.
I still have no idea what's going on with the timeline in Godzilla vs. Ghidorah (not really an opinion, but if anyone could explain it to me that'd be great lol) Also I have to say, I love all the different opinions expressed here. It's really cool to see how other people see these movies!
^ Essentially, the time travel in Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah didn't change anything. By moving the Godzillasaurus off Lagos Island in 1944, the Futurians allowed it to be exposed to a nuclear submarine crash in the 1970's and turn into the Godzilla from The Return of Godzilla and Godzilla vs. Biollante in the first place. The Futurians didn't know the 1954 Godzilla was a different individual from the Heisei Godzilla, so they assumed they could erase Godzilla from history by moving the Godzillasaurus off the island before 1954.
For a better and more complete explanation of the time travel from Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah, I recommend reading this article.
Visit Wikizilla.org, the encyclopedia of Godzilla, Gamera, King Kong, Toho monsters and more that anyone can contribute to.
Besides GMK, I didn't like the Millenium series. Final Wars felt too jumbled and all over the place and the others weren't memorable or exciting.
"Is that a monkey?"
You aren't alone in your thoughts about Final Wars.

I think Godzilla Raids Again is really good, and Ebirah, Titanosaurus, and Megaguirus are all awesome.
I also think that Shin Godzilla was a good movie, not amazing. It's too ambitious and really long.
Thank you so much, The King of the Monsters! It makes sense now.
If there was a Godzilla vs Gamera movie, Godzilla should kill a child to piss off Gamera. In my opinion, that would be the best plot device in a monster film for me. I know it sounds dark.
