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.
I find it gets more difficult to watch with each viewing. It's not an awful movie just really scattered and poorly put together.
Best- Godzilla (1954)
Least- Godzilla Raids Again
Best- Invasion of the Astro-Monster
Least- All Monsters Attack
Best- Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla
Least- Godzilla vs. Megalon
Best- Godzilla vs. Biollante
Least- The Return of Godzilla
Best- Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla 2
Least- Godzilla vs. Mothra
Least- Godzilla vs. Megaguirus
"When man falls into conflict with nature, monsters are born." - Professor Hayashida, The Return of Godzilla
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.
Ah, man! I forgot about Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla I literally must think that movie is so bad it's worth forgetting completely.
Best- Godzilla (1954)
Least- Godzilla Raids Again
Best- Mothra vs. Godzilla
Least- All Monsters Attack
Hmm, don’t love either one but if I had to choose,
Best- The Return of Godzilla
Least- Godzilla vs. Biollante
Best- Godzilla vs. MechaGodzilla 2
Least- Godzilla vs. Space Godzilla
Best- Godzilla Against MechaGodzilla
Least- Godzilla: Final Wars
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
^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.
best Gojira, worst Raids Again
best toughhhhhh, tie between Monster Zero and Sea Monster. worst, King Kong US version
best Mechagodzilla, worst Gigan
Best Biollante, Worst 1985
best King Ghidorah, worst Space Godzilla
best GMK, worst Tokyo SOS
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.
^Easy Gorilla. That's baiting.
I suggest we all drop the side tour and let recent comments roll of our backs.
best- Godzilla king of the monsters
worst- Gigantis the Fire Monster(I'm specifically pointing out the dub since it is so different than the original movie)
best- Monster Zero
worst- Godzilla's Revenge
best- Godzilla vs Mechagodzilla
worst- Godzilla vs Hedorah
best- Godzilla vs Biollante
worst- Godzilla 1985
best- Godzilla vs Destoroyah
worst- Godzilla vs Spacegodzilla
best- Tokyo SOS
worst- Toss up between Godzilla vs Megaguirus and GMK since GMK is a more well made movie I guess Godzilla vs Megaguirus
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.
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.
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.
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. :/
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.
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.
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.
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
"Daddy's home- cake every night,"
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.
I don't want to hear anymore of it again. Period.
I love all the Godzilla movies from all the decades.

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.
Japanese "inner connection"?
Yea the whole sub plot about the mechanic and kiryu having a special bond and the kid and mothra having a special bond, jeez it got so corny for me i couldnt stand it
