The War of the Gargantuas (Furankenshutain no kaijū: Sanda tai Gaira)
2 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Maybe it just doesn't translate well, but this just didn't appeal to me. As a rule, I enjoy watching the Japanese 'giant monster' flicks, but this just seemed to be trying to walk the fine line between slight comedy, slight moralizing, slight special effects...well, let's leave it at that. There's a brown 'Gargantua'...a human-friendly giant, and a green one (they're brothers?). This wouldn't be much of a movie if they were both good, so the green one is hell-bent on crushing, stomping, and chewing humans (and, after popping a human in it's mouth, spitting out the clothes, which was about the only memorable moment that I remember from this insipid trash). It's been a while since I've seen this, but I believe (as is generally the case) the military can't take out the evil one, so the good (brown) one takes the job. I forget whether they both die or if it's left open-ended. Either way, at least you finally get to see it end.
