This movie proves that there is a little Godzilla in all of us.  Yes, even those of you who think that a flying blue nose from outer space is out to get you.

I really enjoyed this one. Is it just me or is Orga based on a Broderick 'zilla toy that spent 30 seconds in a microwave?

I want to say I heard that somewhere and it really made my day.

This is one of my favorite Godzilla movies.  It just has so many great moments.  Godzilla and the spaceship facing off and powering up their respective weapons.  Godzilla marching through town, confronting the spaceship, and saying, "Hey!  You!"  (Of course he doesn't really say that but you know that's what he's thinking).  Godzilla melting his way out of the tendrils.  Well, pretty much everything Godzilla does, actually.

Ha!!!!  I block your 8/8 Godzilla with my Shivan Dragon, pump 3 red mana into its firebreathing and kill your Force of Nature.  Sure, I lose 3 life, but it's worth it.

Wait a sec...isn't Force of Nature the one that hurts you...dang it!!!

There's always been discussions about which movies show Godzilla as 'force of nature' vs. 'evil entity bent on destruction'...for the latter, I pick "Godzilla,Mothra, King Ghidorah: All Out Monsters Attack". Yeah, lil' ol'
Baragon is there too--but whatever. I especially cringe when Godzilla, with his 'soulless eyes look', turns to see the
fleeing populace, powers up and--well---does anyone enjoy fried, human sushi?

As for Godzilla 2000---I saw it once. Can't remember too much about it. I'll have to re-rent.  TeddyR

Theyve been showing this one one of movie channels, and I think its one of the better of the new series of Godzilla movies.  When you think about it, their would be people who would chase giant monsters the way they would case tornadoes, of whale watch. (Sort of a hybrid of the two)

You'd think Orga would have been a better opponent for Godzilla though, considering that he supposedly has the mind of an advance alien species.  He was either driven to beastial intellegence by Godzilla's DNA-or he was the equivalent of a test chimp.

Two things, well 3...
1) I LOVE KAIJU- thanke for the review
2) If he was a japanese male my brother would look just like Katagiri
3) I took a girl to this film on a first date, there was a second date, but there was a disticnct lack of ethusiasm.

Godzilla movies are mental comfort food for me. This one is the colaflower yet with a good spinich dip.
Nerd point : AIM-9 Sidewinder do not drop off the launch rails, they just slide forword and go. Also, with 15 lb warheads...not a lot of bang for the bock, kaiju wise.

I made a banner for you:




The magic blue elves from outer space, in their flying blue nose.  Now the movie makes sense.  Yes, I'm being serious.  It makes more sense than the rest of the flying alien blue nose plot.

The main problem is that Godzilla would probably have howl from beyond, berserk, and fork on him when he attacks.  I remember seeing a kurd ape that caused over 200 damage, just because everybody at the table suddenly decided to see just how big a kurd ape could get.  I have not played Magic: The Gathering for probably ten years, but I do still have an alpha lord of the pit somewhere in a protective case.  Loved that card.  All black and ominious.

I liked the storm chasers angle.  My main issue was that the special effects could be uneven, and that Godzilla's opponents (the blue nose and Orga) were not satisfying in the least.  Maybe if the opponents had been a number of flying saucers, then the plot could have remained largely the same.  The human plot stopped being interesting around the time that Shinoda tried to find out what the aliens were looking for in the computer system.  Of course they want to know about Godzilla.  Everything else they found on the planet was mediocre.  "Hairless apes, hairless apes driving cars, hairless apes on cell phones...hey, what the heck is that thing?"

This movie is okay, but alot of the cgi scenes look terrible. All in all its not as terrible as say godzillas revenge, and the story blows my mind everytime i hear it, but hey its a godzilla movie i don't want a story i want a giant monster destroying stuff! That banner below me is pure genius!


Probably my least favorite Godzilla movie, but it's squarely targeted at children.  Godzilla movies seem to be more adult-oriented.

There are some great destruction scenes in the 1992 Godzilla vs. Mothra.  Godzilla fighting the futuristic army and Mothra charging through the blockade of ships are some of my favorites.  Overall, I tend to like models blowing up.  "Real" special effects.  It seems like model work is more forgiving than CGI when something does not come out quite right.

I have a story about a first date that involved seeing "Man's Best Friend."  There was never a second date...

I saw this one in theaters back when it originally came out.  Not the worst Godzilla movie that I've seen but far from being the best either.

They should have  just stuck at this point with practical effects work instead of trying to intergrate CGI into the mix as the CGI stuff just looked terrible.

My favourite part was what happened after Shinoda uttered that ridiculous line about there being a little Godzilla in all of us. As if sensing instinctively that somebody had said something nice about him, Godzilla immediately turned around and set fire to half the city with a single breath.

Roll credits.

Not sure if it's an Alpha, though.
