I thought it might be quite interesting to have a thread where people can state an opinion about the show that you keep to yourself because you suspect it is at odds with the majority.

Someone's trying to start a poop storm. You sound like me.

Anyway, all I'll say is:
- GMK is the only Godzilla movie after 1975 (I haven't seen either 80s movie) that's actually good.
--- only the ending of GvD is that impressive.
- I hate all of the Godzilla games I've played, emulator or modern.
- American-made Godzilla toys are a waste of money.
- GFW is one of the worst movies I've ever seen.
- The American Godzilla and related media should just be called Zilla.
- The comic series looks meh.
- You will all hate G2012. I'll probably like it, but the rest of you will hate it.
- FMs are pointless.
I don't think I saw the same movies as the rest of you.
I'll always miss Vega.

Those opinions are far from unpopular. Most fans here hate Heisei and only like the monster designs and Godzilla vs. Biollante, and I haven't heard a positive word of the Marvel comics that I hadn't typed myself.

I think Minilla is the best incarnation of Godzilla's son. Godzilla Junior is ok, but I really don't like Little Godzilla or care for Baby Godzilla. So basically, I like Minilla. More so than Space Godzilla or Keizer Ghidorah.

Confession List:

-Godzilla vs. The Sea Monster 1966 is my favorite Showa Godzilla Film, and I find it more enjoyable than Mothra vs. Godzilla.
-I find Godzilla vs. Megalon pretty awesome regardless of its low budget development and how much hate it gets from other fans.
-I love the Kiryu-Goji Incarnation and its my all time top favorite Godzilla, I acknowledge and accept that it was flaws such as being stiff and looking immobile during some scenes. Its not the perfect Godzilla, and its not greatly popular among Godzilla fans, but this is the only Godzilla incarnation and design for me.
-I have a soft spot for the Godzilla 2000 film since it was the first Toho Godzilla film I saw in US theaters.
-Godzilla and Mothra: The Battle for Earth is my all time favorite Heisei Godzilla film.
-I find the GMK Godzilla to be the only incarnation that comes close to the Original Godzilla and IMO looks the most badass regardless of the "pot belly"
-I feel that Godzilla Final Wars is a okayish meh kind of film, its piss poor beyond belief and a bad way to celebrate Godzilla's anniversary, but its has a slight Showa feel to it that makes the film a bit bearable.
-I have never seen the Original Mothra film
--I enjoy all ROM films
-I surprisingly somewhat like Godzilla Raids Again
-I find some Mothra songs to be annoying
-I find Destroy All Monsters mostly boring, except for the final battle at the end against King Ghidorah
-I love Godzilla Save the Earth Xbox version, I find Godzilla Unleashed pretty awesome, but I don't like DAMM that much.
- I hate GINO, but enjoy the movie somewhat.
- I like Keizer Ghidorah and Monster X
-I like the Godzilla mangas but dislike most of the Dark Horse Godzilla comics, looking forward to the IDW Godzilla comic series
-I like Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla, and find it very enjoyable throughout most of the movie, except for that Yuki butt scene.
-And Godzilla Junior is my favorite kaiju from the Heisei Era.

I'd like to know who else besides Alienhulk finds MvsG unappealing.

A collection of unpopular opinions:

- I think that none of the sequels can touch Gojira with a 50-meter stick.
- Godzilla Raids Again, despite its obvious flaws, is my favorite sequel.
- Mothra vs. Godzilla is somewhat overrated. Mothra is easily the better film.
- Godzilla vs. Mothra is underrated, especially considering the films around it.
- Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla (1993) has little to no redeeming value to me.
- All Monsters Attack is better than the sum of its parts (i.e. GvTSM & SOG).
- GMK is corny. Its attempt to emulate the 1964 films falls completely flat.
- Godzilla x Mechagodzilla is the best MG film and the best sequel since 1984.
- Godzilla 1998 is, for the most part, a fairly accurate facsimile of a Toho film.

Here are some of mine:

I like "The Return of Godzilla" better than Gojira (1984).
GMK is a good movie but has some awful special effects moments.
SOG is one of my favorite Showa movies.
I enjoy all of the Showa movies except All Monsters Attack.
I like Godzilla vs. Megaguirus.
I like the Heisei series as a whole. (Yes, I even like GvSG... a little.)
I really don't like GDAMM.

I enjoy the Showa films more than The Heisei Godzilla flims
I love most of the 1999-2004 Godzilla films except for Godzilla Final Wars
King Kong vs Godzilla is my favorite Godzilla film
I enjoy some American versions of Godzilla films (Godzilla vs The Thing is the prime example)
The Heisei Godzilla films bore me to tears

...but it's the same movie. Are you talking about the rare, dubbed International version?


Let's see..

-Anguirus' jaw getting ripped open never freaked/grossed me out as a kid. You could barely see it on the pan and scan releases anyway.
-As much as I try to like it, I just can't enjoy GODZILLA'S REVENGE/AMA as much as the other Showa films.
-Regardless of being one of my very first G films, I can't bear to watch the Jon Beck cut of KING KONG VS. GODZILLA anymore.
-I love all of Toho's 70's output, and don't nitpick the skreeonk out of "what went wrong" with them. They're fun movies. End of story.
-I enjoyed the 90's films as a kid when they were brand spanking new, but they haven't held up well at all in my opinion.
-I personally feel that BIOLLANTE was the last really great G film, with GMK being above average, and the Kiryu films being decent.
-I think FINAL WARS is absolutely dreadful, and had potential to be truly great had someone else been behind it. A damn shame.
-I feel SON OF GODZILLA is one of the most underrated films in the series, and gets overlooked far too often.
-I don't mind the American Godzilla/Zilla character, but GODZILLA (98') really is a pretty terrible movie.

That's all I've got for now.

I don't think this is an unpopular opinion. While most of them Showa films are either great or entertaining, touching the quaility of Gojira would be like touching the quality of Alien, Night of the Living Dead, The Empire Strikes Back, 2001, etc. It's that type of film.
- Godzilla Raids Again, despite its obvious flaws, is my favorite sequel.

I wouldn't go that far, but I find it quite underrated.
- Mothra vs. Godzilla is somewhat overrated. Mothra is easily the better film.

Agreed, I'd take Monster Zero over it too, as far as "Best sequel" position goes.
- Godzilla vs. Mothra is underrated, especially considering the films around it.

True, it's certainly the best of Okwara's Godzilla films (even when there isn't really too much to compete with).

- Minilla doesn't bother me.
- I like the HB show.
- I thought GTS was a good depiction of Godzilla.
- I'm trying to be optimistic about the new movie and comic.


Exactly what I was talking about earlier, these aren't confessions. Most fans are okay with Minilla, most fans have a nostalgic love of the HB and GTS shows, and again, I'M the one who's been stirring poop for the movie and comic.
I don't think I saw the same movies as the rest of you.

The Heisei series is my favorite series (But I like them all anyways)
GTTHM isn't that great of a movie (but I still like it. I'm just not crazy for it)
I enjoy every movie except FW.

-Heisei kaiju>Showa kaiju to me. Save for Mothra, who's just too plushy, and Rodan, who to me is equal to the Showa version. GKG, SMG and Heisei Goji FTW!
-I like every single Toho kaiu though. Even the SOG Goji, Minya and Gabara.
-I think beam wars are kewl.
-Mothra is boring,
-I enjoy my Ultraman stuff more than Godzilla generally. Sorry. :(
It is a simple story. There is nothing that brings me happiness. Be it believing in others or them believe in me, it did not matter.
What others called happiness simply did not bring me joy.
