So it's been a while since I've posted any topics but seeing as these types of Topics seem to be very popular right now, why not throw my own little discussion topic into the mix. My question for all of you is what Godzilla's over 65-year history is THE defining moment/scene and why? To quickly explain, a defining moment isn't the same as your favorite moment (though they can be the same). It's a moment or scene YOU specifically would show someone who has never seen anything Godzilla-related before and say THIS is Godzilla.

 

Now I'm specifically talking about what defines Godzilla as a character and movie icon the best, but feel free to share your defining moment on any Godzilla-related topic like about a specific Kaiju/character, Era, time period or even the Kaiju genre as a whole! For me personally, it has to be the Atomic Death scene from Shin Godzilla (which is coincidentally also my favorite scene). Everything from the Music, the Visuals, the imagery, the symbolism and the fact that not only did they perfectly showcase how destructive Godzilla is, but also did it in a way that's it's both tragic and beautiful at the same time! It perfectly summarizes what I love about Godzilla and the genre as a whole.

 

I hope I've made my question clear enough but with that out of the way, let's discuss!

Long live the king...

Oooo, that’s also a great one!!! That Airport entrance still gives me chills to this day. For me it’s that silence after Godzilla foot touches down which makes that moment feel so epic to me

Long live the king...

1954 - Godzilla Comes Ashore. Barely disturbs the water, it’s kind of unsettling

Him pulling the electrical wires down in the original. It's the first line in the Blue Oyster Cult song, which was one of my first introductions to the character, so seeing him do it in the movie was pretty iconic for me.

I LOVED THE BUILDUP OF THE AIRPORT SCENE FROM THE TSUNAMI TO EVERYONE GOING QUITE WHEN GODZILLA STEPS. THAT GUY UNDER THE PLANE WING WHEN WATER CAME WAS LIKE, “what the fu-“

That is one big pile of shit - Ian Malcom, 1993

That scene has one of my favorite effects shot in the series when Godzilla uses his atomic breath to melt the towers.

I like it too, I like how the metal turns bright before folding, kinda like how you’d expect.

This isn’t a godzilla moment, but that train with the muto being lit up is amazing

The towers were apparently made of painted wax and the film crew supposedly shined a heat lamp on it causing the effect of the metal turning white hot and melting.

People talk about the early godzilla films spfx and compare them to monsterverse, but When I saw 1954 i didn’t expect it to look as amazing as it did

@SarcasticGoji

That really just shows why Practical effects are so important. Whilst CGI will always evolve over the years causing older stuff to look outdated easily, there's something about practical effects like suitmation which makes it timeless. Even after 65 years those effects still hold up!

Long live the king...

Most of the effects in the 1954 film hold up incredibly well Today, the rest of the Showa series is sort of a mixed bag with some effects looking amazing and others not so much...*cough* *cough* 1962 Kong suit...

1962 Kong has a lot of issues (not just his design)…

 

For example, he kind of has a drinking problem...

Wait I’m list mine,

-Godzilla Comes Ashore

-Godzilla’s Entrace in Terror Of Mechagodzilla

-Godzilla Underwater Beginning scene in GMK

-Godzilla Atomic Breath G 14

-Godzilla Comes Ashore in 4th form (Shin)

-Atomic Breath Shin

-Godzilla Earth Wakes Up, (whether or not you like the anime, this scene is awesome)

-Godzilla Terristrius First scene, Singular Point

 

I feel these scenes do godzilla the most justice.
