If youre a father/Mother or an uncle and youre son or Nephew had an interest in seeing one of your Godzilla films, which one will you show him first?

 

I go for Godzilla 2000 because his portrayal in it is great, in my opinion.

 

I would have picked G2014 but sadly theres too much teasing in that film and I dont thinks its really the right film to started with.

I would not put the original in becaues in it hes a villain while in Godzilla 2000 he is portrayed as an anti hero.

I know for a fact some people like Godzilla as a hero and most of the kids prefer him as the hero.

Well, my oldest nephew being 6, first saw all of my godzilla dvds and asked me if he could watch one. I picked out son of godzilla and he loved it. Right now his favorite godzilla movie is like that of Gman2887, invasion of astro monster. I don't blame him, it is one of the better godzilla movies ever made.

Now when my son gets older, i think i will do the same when it comes time.

It's great being a parent and an uncle. :)

Also, my oldest nephew likes godzilla vs biollante, godzilla 2000, godzilla 54, and i think he said that terror of mechagodzilla was his 5th favorite.

I would sit down and show him the Heisei era as it is the best Godzilla Series in my opinion.

Id say Ghidorah the 3 headed monter because he started as a villan but ended as a hero by the end of the movie, plus it has a 3 vs 1 monster finalle

Evacuate?, Godzilla is just a Legend!-Woman in GMK

It depends on the kid's age that I'm showing.

 

2-9 a showa movie, 

10-15- would depend on the kid's tastes. Probably a millennium movie since they're not part of a continuity but maybe G85 depending if I think he'd have the attention span, and could appreciate a solo Godzilla movie. The first movie would also be a likely candidate for this age group.

I've started my nephew on the Hanna Barbera Godzilla cartoons. He enjoys them, he's 2. I'm gonna make a move to King Kong vs Godzilla next then to Godzilla vs Sea Monster cause that was my first G film.

Alot of people assume that when kids are younger they like SHowa begore anything else. When I was little I disliked Showa because it was to light hearted and didn't feel like Godzilla. If kids grow up on Showa then they could be totally lost when they see anything Heisei-Legendary (except for Final Wars) because Godzilla would be a totally different character.

Varan,
But the Showa series came first, so what's more like Godzilla? The Showa series or things that came after?

I'm not going to turn this into a Showa vs. latter eras debate, but I grew up on both Showa and Heisei. Today I far prefer the Showa series to anything else and I probably watch the Heisei movies the least.

I mean I grew up watching showa and heisei and didn't get lost between the two, but just for kicks if they'd be lost watching heisei/millennium from showa, wouldn't the opposite be true too? If that was the case I'd much rather the child be aquainted early on with the large portion of the series that is showa than miss out on it or misunderstand it due to starting on the other series. 

I feel you are looking at this a little to biased on what you want/like rather than an average. If you didn't like the showa as a child that's fine but I don't think we can use you as the standard

my daughter has seen the 1998 godzilla, and i took her & the wife to see the new one when it came out. perhaps when she gets older i'll show her some heisei era films

I don't really have a say in this (cause im 14[audience gasps] and don't have any children/nephews) but I would show them a millennium such as 2000 and if it Sparks their interest I'd show them the heisei series.

@ Zillaforlife; you can add an insight to this topic that those of us who were born in the 80's or earlier can't. I'm sure there have been many topics on here about what movie got us into Godzilla (Godzilla vs. Megalon for me) but this particular topic is unique to that and you being so young can tell us which movie got you into it and who introduced it to you. As for which movie I plan on introducing the series to my nephew when he is a little older (maybe 5 or 6) will probably be Destroy All Monsters. If he shows an interest then I will show him the entire series in order. I will introduce the series to my niece as well and if God forbid I accidently end up with kids of my own, I will go with the same strategy.

Most likely the Godzilla vs Biollante, as its probably the most understandable film in the Godzilla series (And the fights are Fantastic!) Then perhap's Godzilla vs King Ghidorah, i would want my Nephew or Niece to be accustomed to the Heisei series before i show him Godzilla 2014, which i would make a big build up for :).

 

 

(Actually..Probably Godzilla 2)

Good grief.

Varano4276,

I agree with gman2887 on this. The first two showa films are much more serious than the majority of heisei could ever be. The showa series also deleivered some more exciting movies that hold a higher ground then heisei. The heisei era is ok, i will say that. But if you ask any older fan, like myself, gman2887, or any other older fan of this franchise, i guaranteed you that they will say that the showa series is still the best out of the whole 60 years of this franchise.

I totally agree, probably because Godzilla 2000 was my first, It's one of my favorite movies to date and I always brings back memorys. I totally recomend it as a first timer movie.

The way my life is looking now, I'll be an uncle LONG before I'm a father (and my brother is younger than me...).  When that day comes, I figure Godzilla 2000 is just about perfect!  It was good enough to be my first Godzilla film at age 6 (or was it 7?), so it will be good enough for my nieces/nephews... or else... ;)

And if they are really young, Godzilla's Revenge is the perfect choice!

I am also 14, so I can say for younger children it would be best to show them Final Wars, or a similar g-movie (This was my first G-Movie at 8, I loved it) GMK is also another good introductory movie. After that you could try some of the cornier showa movies and some of the action packed 90's and 00's. Once they get older try some of the more serious plots with intense themes (King Kong vs Godzilla-Invasion of The Astro Monster for showa, G vs Biollante and G vs Destroyah for hesei) once you think they are old enough to appreciate darker films show them the black and white G-Films and '85. You can throw some of the animated series in there near then beginning and the 98 movie near the middle. Hope you enjoyed my detailed guide XP

For young kids, anything where Godzilla's the good guy.  So Hanna Barbera or Showa era flicks would work great.  My personal first Godzilla movie was Megalon, but since that movie severely lacks any Godzilla, I cast my vote for Ghidrah the 3 Headed Monster followed by Godzilla vs. Monster Zero.

The original. I could show him/her GMK, though. Just to see his/her reaction to Godzilla's appearance. That alone is why the movie is quite terrifying.
