1. I was about 6 years old (1984) and my Grandfather turned on HBO for us to watch something together and Godzilla was on. My Grandfather and I stayed up till the middle of the night watching it, and I was hooked after that. My Grandfather and I would watch every Godzilla movie we could together till the he passed away. 

2. Godzilla 1985

3. Godzilla: King of the Monsters

I've been told by my parents that I've been watching Godzilla since I was 2 years old. I got my own TV on my 3rd bday so I wouldn't wake my parents in the middle of the night.

Favorite toho movie is by far Terror of Mechagodzilla, Titanosaurus is my favorite Kaiju and I love the jazz music.

Favorite Legendary movie is either KOTM or GvK. Probably the former if I had to choose.

1.) I grew up renting Godzilla movies from my local video store, bit one VHS I owned and watched constantly was Ebirah Horror of the Deep

2.) I honestly love Godzilla vs. Megalon, it was another I owned as a kid and Gigan was so cool to me

3.) King of the Monsters is my favorite, the fact that you can see the reverence in every scene and the soundtrack is great - also hearing the classic Godzilla skreonk roar was perfect

1. I was about 8 years old. Someone had moved into the upstairs of our apartment at that time. He knew my mom and were friends for a long time. I’d go upstairs and see all of these Godzilla posters on the walls and a huge stack of Godzilla DVD’s. I asked him if I could watch one and he’s like “Sure thing! You can watch them all.” I picked out my first Godzilla movie, which was Destroy All Monsters. And the obsession for Godzilla began. 

2. My favorite TOHO Godzilla film is Godzilla Minus One. It was an incredible film and it was an emotional rollercoaster. Godzilla was amazing in that film and it definitely deserved that Oscar win. 

3. My favorite Monsterverse film is Godzilla King Of The Monsters. I loved seeing the clash of all four TOHO kaiju. Plus I’m a big Mothra fan and was excited to see her in the film.

Display name ^ CosmicShrimps made me laugh, I love it haha!

My first memory of Godzilla was finding a discounted triple feature of Godzilla Vs Kong Ghidorah, Godzilla and Mothra, and GMK, all at a Dollar General when I was 14. I loved those films so much, and they kick-started my adoration for Mothra and Baragon alongside Godzilla. 


My favorite Toho Godzilla movie is GMK, perfect suits, wonderful characters, a great story, and amazing set pieces. I love it so much. The score is amazing too!!


My favorite Monster verse film is KOTM, just because of Mothra and Bear McCreary's amazing score!!!


I really hope to win, I've never been to a Godzilla convention, and I'd love to go someday!


MemberMothra LarvaeApr-03-2024 9:56 AM

My first introduction to Godzilla was through the 1998 Godzilla movie and i have been in love ever since

My favorite Toho Godzilla movie is Godzilla Final Wars

My favorite Monsterverse movie is Godzilla: King of the Monsters because I really fell in love with that film the first time i watched it


MemberMothra LarvaeApr-03-2024 10:09 AM

My first memory was when I was very very very young. I don’t remember exactly how old I was, but I vividly remember Godzilla vs Megaguirus being my first movie I’ve seen. It was on cable, it was the scene of the Meganula hunting down those humans in the city. I somehow remember the movie being Godzilla vs Mothra, funnily enough. And that it was black and white. But both of those turned out to be really false lmao.

My favorite Toho Godzilla movie is probably Godzilla Minus One. Which admittedly is very basic, but it’s just so amazing on every level. I’m also gonna shoutout Godzilla vs Mechagodzilla II as my favorite heisei movie. I love that one.

My favorite Monsterverse movie is tough because they’re all great IMO. But I‘m gonna have to go with Godzilla: King of the Monsters. It has the great sound design that I love, amazing music, great fights. Kinda has it all for a Monsterverse movie, I think.


MemberMothra LarvaeApr-04-2024 8:24 PM

1) after watching terror of mechagodzilla on youtube in 2014 when I was young I I started to watch older godzilla movies on YouTube and paying for it and I was 4

2)my all time favorite Toho movie was Shin godzilla that one is just basically my childhood and the atomic breath scene is so cool and Kamata kun gills spilling blood is disgusting but a great thriller

3)my favorite monsterverse movie has to go to Godzilla:King of the monsters it's just so good and thermonuclear godzilla looked badass also the characters were great and mothra sacrificed herself to save godzilla which shows what true love truly is
