For mine by Era...

Showa Era (1954--1983): the 1st movie, the 1954 Godzilla as it is the one that started it all and defined what it meant to be a Godzilla.

Heisei Era (1984--1995): 'Godzilla vs Destroyah' as it returned to the Oxygen Destroyer concept only in kaiju form... of course I was hoping for (at least) the two of them to kill each other off rather than Destroyah being killed so easily like that.

Millennium Era (1999--2004): None really, a lot here had potential... but to me fell short (in one aspect or another) of my hopes/expectations.

Monsterverse Era (2014--2019): 2014 Godzilla film, and most likely I will enjoy the "King of the Monsters" film (based on the info and trailers I have seen it should be great, and the movie makers tried to have a lot of nods to classic films as far as I've heard... just the 2019 Ghidorah seems like a modern remake to the concept behind Toho's 1st Ghidorah!)

Post-Millennium Era (2016--2018): None as well. The Anime trilogy tried to be a big hit, but to me Toho had a LOT of missed potential in both story and kaiju designs. So much that at times I try to pretend that they don't exist (at least in my own little universe).
I'm a believe of God and Jesus Christ my saviour and not afraid to say so.
Although I'm not against giving freedom to same-sex couples/marriage (as America is supposed to be free), as a Christian (which the Bible describes as a sin) and me personally I don't care/desire/agree with same sex couples/marriage.

Going by Era

Showa: Godzilla Vs. Gigan/Ghidorah the Three Headed Monster
Heisei: Godzilla Vs. MechaGodzilla II
Millennium: Godzilla: Final Wars
Monsterverse: Godzilla: King of the Monsters

Can’t comment on Post Millenium since the only real movie there is Shin Godzilla and the Anime trilogy is their own little thing... which I’m not big on.
Reignited... and hopefully less weird this time around.

I'm a guy with simple interests. Mostly revolving around monsters blowing up entire cities.

I was saving an update until I could see KOTM, which didn't make the cut as I'd hoped. But I'll use the opportunity to make a few necessary changes.

By decade:

90s: (runner-up: Godzilla vs. Mothra)

By era:

Heisei: Toss up between Godzilla vs. Biollante & Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah.
Millennium: GMK (Distant runner-up: G2K. Most of the Millennium films suck.)

Finally decided to revise that list I made last year after giving several Godzilla movies a rewatch. I admit this was a tough one, there's so much to choose from :lol:

By period:

50's: Godzilla.

60's: Monster Zero (GTTHM and KKvG are close contenders for me).

70's: Terror of Mechagodzilla.

80's: Godzilla vs Biollante.

90's: Godzilla 2000 (Although GvKG is a guilty pleasure purely due to how batshit insane the plot is lol).

2000's: GMK.

2010's: Godzilla: King of the Monsters.


By era:

Showa: Monster Zero (technically 1954, but I prefer to consider it it's own thing in terms of eras).

Heisei: Godzilla vs Biollante.

Millenium: GMK.

Monsterverse: Godzilla: King of the Monsters.

New post-Millenium Toho era (Reiwa? Dunno how else to call it): Shin Godzilla.

The sea has cobalt, it's full of mercury. Too many fumes in our oxygen!
All the smog now is choking you and me. Good Lord, where is it gonna end?
Got to get it back, someday. Got to get it back, and soon now.
For tomorrow maybe you and me...

I very much consider TFA to be half-assed. What a generic film which only fed on nostalgia, it brought nothing new to the table.


That's not true. C3PO had a red arm.
