GODZILLA [2014] movie review

May 17, 2014

What an absolute abomination, I just have to say that right away.  That is what this new American version GODZILLA [2014] movie is.  It is not just the worst Godzilla movie I have ever seen, it is possibly the worst ever movie of all time I have seen.  This so-called Godzilla movie is a fail on every single level from the perspective of being an actual Godzilla movie, and not even taking into consideration any past depiction of Godzilla in a movie, this itself as a movie is also a fail on every single level.  Toho please do not let anyone ever make another Godzilla movie!

GODZILLA: FINAL WARS [2004] – movie review

April 5, 2014

What started in my childhood ended this afternoon as I watched the final Toho made Godzilla movie, GODZILLA: FINAL WARS [2004]. I am afraid to say this movie was an absolute abomination and I wish I would never have watched it. It is not just the worst Godzilla movie ever made, I think it is the worst movie of any kind I have ever seen. I could not be more disappointed. [Read more]

The Mechagodzilla movies have been some of my favorite in the series, so I was very excited for the Millennium Series take on the giant robot in GODZILLA AGAINST MECHAGODZILLA [2002]. Like much with the Millennium Series, its Mechagodzilla installment was very different from past interpretations. [Read more]

I was prepared for GMK to be a step up in the quality of Godzilla films from in the Millennium series bringing back familiar and favorite monsters. I was totally taken by surprise though by the complete change in tone of this movie from pretty much every other Godzilla movie. From the roles and looks of the monsters, to the editing, to the complete dismissal of all previous Godzilla movies except the original, GMK was a very different installment and not necessarily the better for it.

GODZILLA VS MEGAGUIRUS [2000] movie review

March 8, 2014

Continuing the Millennium Series Godzilla marathon this afternoon with GODZILLA VS. MEGAGUIRUS [2000], a somewhat mediocre installment in the franchise. The music was good, the acting by the human characters was better than usual, and there was a very good final monster battle, but as with GODZILLA 2000, Godzilla himself was off screen basically the entire movie until the final act.

GODZILLA 2000 [1999] movie review

March 1, 2014

Upon realizing the release of the new Godzilla movie (which will be a worldwide release) is coming up in May, I resumed my Godzilla marathon entering the Millennium series of films, the first time for me to see these movies. Unfortunately, GODZILLA 2000 [1999] is a very slow start to the resumption of the Godzilla franchise. With Godzilla absent for nearly the entire middle two thirds of the movie, and with a generic UFO subplot, viewer interest understandably wavers through much of the movie, even for me. [Read more]


December 22, 2012

Continuing my Godzilla movie marathon next up was a movie I could remember well from childhood, ALL MONSTERS ATTACK [1969], or as it was very poorly named for its U.S. release, GODZILLA’S REVENGE. This tenth movie in the series was very firmly geared toward children. A young boy named Ichiro (funny now that that name is famous in the U.S.) gets bullied by his classmates and escapes into his imagination and vivid dreams of hanging out on Monster Island with his buddy Minya, aka Godzilla’s son.

SON OF GODZILLA [2012] movie review

December 9, 2012

I do not ever really recall seeing SON OF GODZILLA before, as I continue my Godzilla movie marathon with this lighthearted 1967 installment that introduces Godzilla’s apparent offspring born from a giant glowing egg. [Read more]
