  1. “So is there just big chunks of metal floating around in outer space waiting for aliens to mine them?” pretty much, yeah.

    Well, it’s not like taking time out to do a little song and dance number is unusual for kaiju movies. Look at Mothra.

    Dam I’m definitely watching more of these movies and the rest of your reviews for the Godzilla movies. Awesome

  4. Ugh.. those people again.. Gojira isn’t how you properly read this monsters name as that is just early transcription and outside fact that in Japanese some letters fall between most people IN THE MOVIES read it closely to Godzilla. But as they argue even over proper pronunciation of Cthulhu name despite fact that author clearly state that whole point is that humans can’t read it properly, so who expect intelligence from otaku anyway?

  5. I absolutely LOVE this movie. It’s by far my favorite of the Showa era.

    This movie is an example of the campy, colorful style done well. Also, yes that battle at the end is still amazing, not even King Ghidorah can lay the smackdown as hard and fast as Mechagodzilla with a full arsenal.

    From what I heard this was supposed to be a Toho Frankenstein sequel, and they didn’t bother to change the whole electricity power for Godzilla, so it really does come out of nowhere and makes the climactic turn in the final battle a little disappointing and cheap.
