The Middle Showa Era was a time of change and experimentation. Which of the three are your favorite? They include:

1. Ebriah Horror of the Deep

2. Son of Godzilla 

3. Destroy All Monsters

Destroy All Monsters, by virtue of it being the first Godzilla film I ever saw.

I've been hooked on the Big G ever since. :)

A true fan can acknowledge the bad while still appreciating and cherishing the good.

Interesting name since I don't find any of these particularly experimental--I find the 1970s to be more experimental by virtue of the cut budgets. The filmmakers had to get creative and weird to do something new/fresh--Or hell even finish the story.

These films, by and large, are fairly well made. Son of Godzilla is an underrated gem and I'd call Godzilla vs. The Sea Monster one of the best in the series. Easy.

Experimental doesn’t mean bad I just meant that they started changing genre, tone, and the like. The three of them are very different between each other and the previous six Showa Films. Sea Monster seems to be an action adventure movie with a splash of comedy. Son of Godzilla acts like a childrens/Disney movie, and that’s not necessarily bad depending on who you ask. Destroy All Monsters seems to go back to the themes of the first six. That’s why I call it the experimental age.

Titan of Water,
No, I wasn't insinuating you were calling them bad. I just think that, while there is a shift in the series here, it wasn't particularly an experimental one--At least not in the more overt way that, say, Godzilla vs. Hedorah was.

I find it amusing, that somehow there is a conflict in a lot of the discussions. It’s nice that we can share opinions freely. I agree, I wouldn’t call these experimental, just when the show Golden Age was ending. Golden not meaning good, just Profitable. 

expecting the worst, sets you up for thr worst

I agree with http://www.scified.com/member/43153

I liked Destroy All Monsters.

Ah **** I’m using my wrong eye again. Sorry that was meant to be behind your back
