What's your favorite and least favorite Godzilla movie in each decade? I'll start:

50's: Best- Godzilla King of the Monsters (I like seeing Raymond Burr) 

         Least- Godzilla Raids Again (It's not a bad film, just isn't on the same level as the original or US version of the original)

 

60's: Best- Godzilla vs Sea Monster (My first G film and I still love the movie and it's characters just hate the US dubbing)

         Least- Godzilla's Revenge

 

70's: Best- Terror of Mechagodzilla

         Least- Godzilla vs Megalon (I don't hate it but it is silly)

 

80's: Best- Godzilla 1984 (Return of Godzilla)

         Least- Godzilla vs Biollante (Not a bad film, just like 84 better)

 

90's: Best- Godzilla vs Destroyah

         Least- Godzilla (1998)

 

00's: Best- Godzilla 2000

         Least- Godzilla X MG Tokyo SOS (Man this movie is corny)

GMAN I forgot about G vs MG 2 from the Hensei series, man its hard for me to watch that movie.

AdminGodzillaSep-24-2014 8:57 AM

I find it gets more difficult to watch with each viewing. It's not an awful movie just really scattered and poorly put together.

Are the tens included?

50s- Best Gojira original

Least- Raids again, by default its a good film that i enjoyed

60s-best Ghidorah the three headed monster

Least- Godzilla vs King Kong, in my opinion its worse then Revenge, cause Kong only won for american audiences, now i live in america, and this didnt please me.

70s- best Godzilla vs MechaGodzilla

Least- Godzilla vs Hedorah, just.....no

80s- Best Godzilla vs Biollante

Least 84, by default again as the film was still great, but it cant step to Biollante

90s-Best Godzilla vs King Ghidorah

Least Godzilla vs SpaceGodzilla

00s- Best Godzilla Against MechaGodzilla

Least GMK, never was fond of this one.

10s- Godzilla 2, as of now. If this film turns out like its predicted, it could be the greatest Godzilla film of all time.

 

Good grief.

Ah, man! I forgot about Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla I literally must think that movie is so bad it's worth forgetting completely.

Changed.

How could any true G fan not have any love for any of the 70's films?

 

Btw I really don't think G vs SpaceG is that bad. I find the Hensei G vs Mothra and G vs MG2 to be A LOT worse

KoldWarKid62

MemberBaragonSep-24-2014 4:23 PM

^Opinions, my friend. Opinions.

 

But when you call into question my being a G-Fan, be very careful. Depending on how old you are, I may have been one long before you were born.

KoldWarKid-  Please dont cop an attitude. We are having a fun game and Sparkzilla was disrespecting your Godzilla fan legacy by any means.

And in truth, none of us can believe you have been a G-fan, for all we know you could be a 14 year old kid who just started liking Godzilla last year.

Good grief.

AdminGodzillaSep-24-2014 5:23 PM

^Easy Gorilla. That's baiting.

I suggest we all drop the side tour and let recent comments roll of our backs.

ModeratorGiganSep-24-2014 5:41 PM

I meant to say wasnt disrespecting.

Gman- Sorry, i mainly didnt want him to start an attitude with Sprakzilla, maybe i was a little to harsh however.

Good grief.

KoldWarKid62

MemberBaragonSep-24-2014 5:57 PM

Thanks, GMan, and sorry in advance for the rant, but I need to get this off my chest.

 

@GorillaGodzilla - First off, Sparkzilla posed a question. I, like everyone else here, stated an opinion to said question. He called me out on my opinion, probably jokingly. Believe me, I wasn't copping an attitude. If I do, you'll know about it. You don't have to agree with a damn thing I say, but you need to respect my right to express it.

 

Second, please, please don't go there about attitude. You and I have had our go-rounds as you've had with anyone else who has an opinion contrary to yours, especially about G2014. You whine like a little girl if someone has anything but ultimate praise for this movie. In my dealings with everyone on these boards I have been nothing but respectful and never criticized anyone's opinion or called them names. I can't say the same for you.

 

As far as my age and G-Fan status, the 62 in my username refers to the year I was born, and I've been a Godzilla fan for the vast majority of that time. Being a Godzilla fan does not equate one to seeing the whole history through rose-colored glasses. I can be objective now and have a very different opinion of these movies from say when I was actually 14, in 1976, or 10, in 1972. We all have our opinions; get over it.

50's

 

Best: Gojira- Original, man. Dark, scary, and intelligent:)

Least: Raids Again- I think this one was a big letdown compared to the previous film. I still enjoyed the battle though.

 

60's

 

Best: Mothra vs. Godzilla/ Godzilla's revenge- I can't choose between these two. Tease me however you want, I'll always love Godzilla's Revenge. :)

Least: King Kong vs. Godzilla- I can understand why most adult Gfans like this one, but I justdon't find it enjoyable to watch. :/ 

 

70's

 

Best: Terror of Mechagodzilla- This has a great story, intense battle, and amazing music. 

Least: Godzilla vs. Gigan- Meh, talking Goji, alien Roaches, and stock footage EVERYWHERE. I understand this was a very low-budget film though. Also this was Nakajima-san's last time playing as Godzilla. I give it credit for what it is, but compared to the other 70's films, this one's my least favorite. 

 

80's

 

Best: Godzilla vs. Biollante- Biollante is a great addition to the Godzilla monster roster, and I like the winks and nods to the original Gojira.

Least: Return of Godzilla- Ths movie was great, until Godzilla attacked the city. It just dragged on for so long, and super X was really dumb.The Godzlla isn''t that scary to me either, he just looks really derpy and tiny. I'm glad they changed his design in vs. Biollante.

 

90's

 

Best: Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla 2- Mechagodzilla 2 is my 2nd favorite Godzilla enemy. He pretty much killed Goji, if not for Rodan. The story is oretty confusing here and there, but it's still a great Godzilla movie. 

Least: Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah- People are gonna rant on me, but I really don't like this one. King Ghidorah looks really wierd to me, and his roar is pretty bad compared to the showa one. Also, the story is just so darn confusing it gives me a headache. But, I'll give it credit for having Mecha King Ghidorah.

 

00's

 

Best: Godzilla 2000- It has Orga. Also Godzilla looks really cool too! The CGI is terrible, especially when putting it next to the Heisei Gamera films, but Toho made this movie within a year because of the 1998 tragedy, you have to give them props for that.

While I prefer the manga adaption over the film, it's a really good air-freshener after what happened in 1998.

Least: Godzilla:Final Wars- I have to admit, this is a very fun film to watch, but it is not a good (supposed) ending to the Toho Godzilla franchise. Also, some of the moster redesigns are just awful. Anguirus and King Caesar especially. :P

Koldwarkid,
I had already told everyone to drop it and move on. That post is in direct contradiction of that and could've been saved for a private message, it didn't need to be stuck in the middle of the thread.

But because some of you are keen on continuing these things it ruins the fun for everyone else. Like so:

The topic is closed for 24 hours. I'll re-open it tomorrow. Those that feel the need to continue these rants can take a cold shower before rejoining the topic. Congrats fellas.

Re-opened. If anyone even breathes the mere idea of starting that argument back up in any form this topic will be closed for good and unpleasant things will go down with that member.

I don't want to hear anymore of it again. Period.

Glad I'm not the only one who hated Tokyo SOS, the movie was beyond cheesy in that Japanese "inner connection" sort of way. Not to mention it was kind of a ripoff of GvsMothra64 with MG thrown in.

G. H. (Gman)

AdminGodzillaSep-26-2014 9:14 AM

Japanese "inner connection"?
