Mothra LarvaeMember0 XPOct-18-2013 9:44 AMA friend and I were discussing which of the Godzilla movies was our favorite, and we both agreed on the 1984 Godzilla. It's probably not the best of all of the movies, but maybe we are just partial to it since it was the first Godzilla movie we saw (in 1985 anyway), the only one we saw in theaters, and due to a lack of internet in the 80's/early 90's, really the only modern one we knew about. So anyway, just curious about what everyone's opinion on this classic is.

Mothra LarvaeMember0 XPOct-18-2013 4:13 PMI wouldn't really say any film is the best. It's all opinions. To you Godzilla 1984 is your favorite. To me Godzilla Final Wars is my favorite.


BaragonMember425 XPOct-18-2013 6:12 PMProbably not the best move but it spawned the best Godzilla era. Since it was the only era with recurring characters and an actual continuation.

GiganAdmin4628 XPOct-19-2013 3:59 AMTeam GhidorahI wouldn't say the Heisei era was the best. Just because something has continuity and recurring characters doesn't make it any better or worse than anything else, but in the Heisei series case it really didn't matter. Most of the recurring characters were never very well developed and seemed to make appearances just for the sake of continuity instead of story. As for Godzilla 1985, the American cut is probably better paced. But I didn't like all the strange edits and crude propaganda. Raymond Burr's character adds very little to the movie with the exception of connecting it deeply with the American cut of the original film. Now the Japanese cut is superior, but much slower. It's more like a ***bersome disaster film than a straight up daikaiju film-- Not that this is a bad thing, because it sets it apart from things done before. I wouldn't rank it as one of the best movies, but it's very relevant and probably one of the top best of the Heisei series. Love it or hate it, both versions are interesting films to study.
