"Serious", however, doesn't make a great film. DESTOROYAH, especially, is really quite lackluster.

The Showa series is my personal favorite. I've been kind of surprised by how much I've liked the Millennium series actually. I think I can say I prefer their cartoonish, comic book action style to the dramatic, dark tones of the 90s films. I like the darker direction in concept but even though I love the 90s era I find the films to be kind of...plodding by comparison.

GodzillaDude wrote:I am pretty sure this topic has been done before but I'd like to discuss and see people talk about it again. There have been the Showa, Heisei and Millennium eras for Godzilla films and they all have had great movies for most people somewhere in them although I know some that hate the Showa series, I know some that hate the Heisei series and I know some that hate the Millennium series but no matter that because each has their favorite era. The point of this topic is to discuss your favorite Godzilla film era and explain why it is your favorite...
EDIT: To be more specific about my favorite era and after reconsidering a lot of it the list ranks like this...
Millennium is now #1 instead of Heisei for multiple reasons. For example I like ALL films from Millennium where as there was a pretty lackluster film in the Heisei era titled "Godzilla & Mothra the Battle For Earth". Another reason is that my favorite Godzilla film GFW is in the Millennium era, another reason is that Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla is a very close second thanks to the good acting, Godzilla suit but mainly the character of Akane who I thought was a very interesting and a potentially very deep character. She should have been further explored in Tokyo S.O.S. instead of the smaller brief role she got. Plus I got into Godzilla by watching the Millennium films. Millennium is just the most consistent for me. And well I know I will and have already gotten some heat for this...I really don't care for the Showa to much mainly due to the constant campy feel in a lot of the films. The only two films I actually think are more than just bad or okay in the Showa era are Gojira and Son of Godzilla everything else I wouldn't really care to much if I didn't see any of them again.
What is your favorite era and why? And what are your favorite films from the era?
A smaller minor reason for the creation of this topic is to sort of find out what is on average the most popular era on Toho Kingdom
And Son of Godzilla? Really??? I'm sorry man I have to hate on that one too. I can't stand that movie lol.
