First of all, I thank everyone who took their time and comment on my 29 Godzilla reviews. This has been overdue but here's my 1st blog for Halloween. Now, Godzilla may not be associated with Halloween but since the holiday is associated with monsters, it makes him somewhat associated to it. Here is a list of my Top Ten favorite stuff of the Godzilla franchise.
Top Ten Favorite Monsters
NUMBER 10: Zilla [First Appearance: Godzilla(1998)] [Last Appearance: Godzilla: Final Wars(2004)]
Now for those who read my review of the American movie know how vocal I was on hating this movie, it wasn't a Godzilla in any sense. But if there's one thing I like about this movie is the design of the monster Zilla (Or American Godzilla as he is known), he looks like a raptor with spikes. Easily the fastest monster on land out of all the monsters from Toho and one of the smartest: Being able to dodge the military and make them destroy New York more than the monster itself, this monster deserves some respect. Glad he was able to get an appearance in the last Godzilla movie.
NUMBER 9: Anguirus [First Appearance: Godzilla Raids Again(1955)] [Last Appearance: Godzilla: Final Was(2004)]
Godzilla's first foe. This four legged monster is just a big dinosaur: Not created by radiation or alien technology or a mystical being. He has put some great fights against many monsters over the years, and even if he doesn't win in most of them, it's still fun to look at. His roar alone can hurt your ears.
NUMBER 8: Megalon [Only Appeared in Godzilla vs Megalon(1973)]
Even though Godzilla vs. Megalon sucks, this beetle with drills for hands can put up a tough fight. Easily the best reason to watch this movie.
Number 7: Gigan [First Appearance: Godzilla vs. Gigan(1972)] [Final Appearance: Godzilla: Final Wars(2004)]
Even though this monster has appeared in two bad movies out of three, he is still a great monster and fighter. This alien cyborg has hooks for hands(At the climax of Final Wars he has chainsaws for hands!), a buzz-saw for a chest, can fly, and shoot lasers out of his eyes. He's been one of Godzilla's toughest foes.
NUMBER 6: Destoroyah [Only Appeared in Godzilla vs. Destoroyah(1995)]
The most demonic-looking monster of the bunch and Godzilla's toughest opponent. His fights with Godzilla is very intense.
NUMBER 5: Mechagodzilla [First Appearance: Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla(1974)] [Final Appearance: Tokyo S.O.S.(2003)]
Every great character has an evil counter-part who is slightly similar. Spider-Man has Venom. Darkwing Duck has Negaduck. And Godzilla has Mechagodzilla: Quite possibly the only weapon, other than the Oxygen destroyer, that can take out the King of the Monsters.
NUMBER 4: Biollante [Only Appeared in Godzilla vs. Biollante(1989)]
The most detail and unique monster of the bunch. Seeing it in action is amazing.
NUMBER 3: King Ghidorah[First Appearance: Ghidorah: The Three-Headed Monster(1964)] [Final Appearance: Godzilla: Final Wars(20040]
Godzilla's true nemesis. Has three heads that shoot lightning and flies around at incredible speeds. Most of the time, Godzilla needs help from other monsters to take him down.
NUMBER 2: Mothra [First Appearance: Mothra(1961), In a Godzilla movie: Mothra vs. Godzilla(1964)] [Final Appearance: Godzilla: Final Wars(2004)]
A giant moth/butterfly that seems innocent but can be a real threat to any monster. One of Godzilla's hardest opponents.
NUMBER 1: Godzilla [First Appearance: Gojira(1954)] [Final Appearance: Godzilla: Final Wars(2004)]
He's the King of the Monsters, what did you expect?
