Review of Godzilla NES

Games aren’t something I associate with myself as much as movies, but I’ve played my fair share. As a lifelong Godzilla fan, when I was younger, I was always fascinated with the idea of a Godzilla video game.  As most of you likely know, they have generally been less than stellar, but that didn’t keep me from giving them a whirl. Godzilla, Monster of Monsters for the NES was probably my first play at one and, while it is very much flawed, it is interesting and worth a look for fans of Toho’s science fiction films from the 60s and early 70s.

Review of Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All Out Attack (GMK)

Godzilla movies often having a hard time standing out from the rest of the series, but Godzilla, Mothra, King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All Out Attack has something special going for it. None other than the great Shusuke Kaneko, director of the fantastic 90s Gamera Trilogy, took the director’s chair for this one. The result is a fantastically entertaining and engaging entry in the series. However, much like with Gamera, there were some major changes to the Godzilla lore along the way.

Review of Godzilla vs Hedorah

Godzilla vs Hedorah is a special one. Over the long course of Godzilla’s career, there have been great movies, and terrible ones. Granted, many of the worst movies have their fans (sometimes including myself) but even they will admit that they are little more than guilty pleasures. Godzilla vs Hedorah, however, is different. Those who hate it regard it as one of the worst in the series while those who love it consider it one of the best. However, there’s one thing we can all agree on. Godzilla vs Hedorah is really really really strange.

Review of Godzilla vs SpaceGodzilla

Longtime Godzilla fans may be surprised to learn that I consider Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla to be one of my favorites of the entire series. The reason for this is that, ever since the film’s original release back in 1994, it has not only been viewed as a below average film in the long running franchise, but is often ranked as one of the worst. While I admit that the film is far from perfect, I simply don’t understand anyone putting this film in the same boat as, say, Godzilla’s Revenge or Godzilla vs Megalon even though it often is. For me, however, Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla is incredibly entertaining with many strengths that many fans seem to overlook.

Review of The Return of Godzilla (AKA Godzilla 1985)

If you ask people who know me to describe me, likely they will mention that I am a Godzilla fan. I first saw the american cut on VHS of The Return of Godzilla (titled Godzilla 1985) as a youth and was mesmerized by it’s semi-apocalyptic tone and serious demeanor. Now, with Kraken’s long awaited official release of the uncut Japanese version in the US, I can safely say that, though the american cut holds nostalgic value for me, the original The Return of Godzilla is far superior. As a matter of fact I consider it the pinnacle of Godzilla’s 60 year movie career. Continue reading “Review of The Return of Godzilla (AKA Godzilla 1985)”
