The king of the monsters is back! Mayhem, destruction and giant monsters! O how is missed you... and check out the mash up of Godzilla footage and classic Blue Öyster Cult "Godzilla" at the bottom of the page.
Whether you're familiar with Godzilla movies or not, these films always have the same plot: Tons of dialog, several very bizarre characters, and Godzilla can be either the good guy or the bad guy. But, what makes these films so good are the epic battles, giant monsters, and extensive destruction.
Let me go down the list of some opponents Godzilla fights:
- King Ghidorah (3 Headed dragon)
- King Kong (Giant monkey)
- Destoroyah (Giant monster that breathes electricity)
- Mechagodzilla (Metal Godzilla)
- Mothra (Giant moth)
- Gigan (Giant monster with buzz saw on stomach and hooks for hands)
- Rodan (Giant bird)
- Biollante (Giant flower monster)
- Hedorah (Toxic waste creature that kills everything)
- Anguirus (Dinosaur with spikes on his back)
Pretty awesome huh! Not to mention that the latest films of Godzilla in Japan have each had an all out melee; 10, 15, even 30 monsters are fighting! And that, my friends, is awesomeness to the 10th power.
Can you imagine being in a city were a giant fire breathing monster is coming to either save or destroy you? Pretty awesome/ scary.
For example: Japan is either the luckiest/unluckiest country in the world. Every year, Japan builds' nice buildings, beautiful parks and so much more; then, in comes Godzilla with his giant feet, fire breath, and quite possibly the most dangerous tail known to mankind-- destroying everything. I'm pretty sure that Japan is the only country in the world that has states of emergencies because of a dinosaur.
Since the new Godzilla movie is coming out, honestly I'm not sure if the Godzilla (2014) is going to fall short or not. From the looks of the trailers, however, it looks promising. One thing is for sure: I'm going to watch it in the theaters.
Tell me what your favorite Godzilla film is and your favorite monster of all time!
Awesome collection of Godzilla films that you should see:
