What is your favorite showa era movie?3,223 Views12 RepliesAdd A Reply
This is just a discussion to learn peoples opinions.
My favorite is Ghidorah the three headed monster, with MG '74 a close second.
I like destroy all monsters
Zwei Wing is the best singing duo. Change my mind.
I flip flop between Monster Zero and Terror of MechaGodzilla--Lately I've been on a Monster Zero high, so I'll go with that.
The only ones I've seen are arts of King Kong vs. Godzilla (1962) and the original Gojira (1954). Of those two, I would pick the 1954 original more as my favorite Showa era movie because of the terror it brings, how unknown the monster was, the sound effects it made (I actually prefer that over the other Showa incarnations. Same goes with the design.), and the messages that the movie shared. It's a deep and interesting movie, although I would also call King Kong vs. Godzilla my second favorite. (Not because it is the only other film I have, but because the story, interactions, and the fights are cool.)

There are like five I haven’t seen, but I’d say Destroy All Monsters.

Gojira '54 (1) and Mothra Vs Godzilla '64 (1a). Not only my favorites from Showa, but favorites period.
Literally all of those too, except Terror of MG. I never warmed up to ol' mouthwash gargling Titanosaurus, or the lame aliens that looked like they were left over from an old Flash Gordon or something. The Music was good, and it had it's moments. At least it didn't have King Ceasar :)
Honestly, I'd also have to say, I agree about '54. It's sooo good
the Mystirans is my favorite. Never said it had to be a Godzilla movie.
Mines is Godzilla vs Mothra.
