Top 10 Favorite Godzilla Flicks

Today is the day that Godzilla or Gojira premiered in Japan back in 1954. Godzilla was a huge part of my childhood. He’s mean, he’s green and he’s the best giant monster out there. The following is my top 10 favorite Godzilla flicks

10.) Godzilla 2000- Godzilla made his way into the new millenium just fine. He fights an alien named Orga.

09.) Godzilla vs. Megalon- Sort of a guilty pleasure of mine. I always enjoyed it. Godzilla teams up with a robot named Jet Jaguar to fight Megalon, a creature from an underground civilization and Gigan, who appeared in a previous flick.

08.) Godzilla, King of the Monsters- The American release of the 1954 flick adds veteran actor Raymond Burr as Steve Martin, a journalist documenting strange happenings in Japan. Winds up that a giant monster is causing it and it destroys Tokyo. Watched this before the Japanese version, so I have a soft spot for it.

07.) Ghidrah, The Three Headed Monster- One of the first Godzilla flicks I ever owned. It’s the first appearance of Godzilla’s biggest foe, Ghidrah (later known as King Ghidorah). Godzilla makes friends with other Toho monsters, Rodan and Mothra to fight the three-headed monster!

06.) Godzilla vs. Monster Zero- Godzilla and Rodan are sent to Planet X to fight Monster Zero which turns out to be Ghidrah. The aliens use mind control and force the two monsters to attack Earth. Fun fights!

05.) King Kong vs. Godzilla- The two most famous giant monsters square off. It’s a really fun movie and Godzilla is near perfect on this one. His costume and roar were amazing. Only thing that kinda got me mad was they made Godzilla afraid of stuff that he wasn’t previously afraid of.

04.) Mothra vs. Godzilla- The first Godzilla flick I ever watched. It was on the sci-fi channel when I was a young boy. An egg washes up on land and it’s Mothra’s and Godzilla comes. The two fight and Godzilla beats Mothra. The egg hatches to reveal two larva who fight Godzilla. It’s got the best score of the series, in my opinion.

03.) Godzilla vs. MechaGodzilla- Aliens create a robot version of Godzilla named MechaGodzilla. Godzilla fights him along with an ancient god known as King Seesar. It’s fun and the first G flick I owned on VHS.

02.) Godzilla 1985- Godzilla returns to destroy Tokyo, 30 years after he did it the first time. Raymond Burr returns as Steve Martin. It’s probably the scariest Godzilla flick. I love it. I remember, me and my parents rented this and watched it one night. Those were fun times.

Honorable mention: Godzilla (1998)– Yeah, deal with it.

01.) Godzilla vs. Biollante- A giant plant mixed with Godzilla DNA fights the big G. I just love everything Godzilla does on this and Biollante was an interesting creature. I have this movie memorized line for line.
