^Yeah, good points there, Zarm.

I was a little harsh on my last post, but I woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning. I don't even consider myself a Heisei hater; vs Destoroyah is one of my personal favorites.

Edit: Stupid new page...

This is a lot but I don't think it really counts. Almost all of these are American reviews (which don't count if we're looking for Japanese reactions) or fan polls way after the fact.

I personally love them. It's all subjective (well, except for the original; if anyone hates that they should probably be banished :lol:).


This is the truest thing here. Like what you like, if you enjoy it good for you.


Unless it's 1998. :lol:

But don’t get mad when we make fun of you for using a poll to prove a point :lol:
Yeah, Godzilla wins... sometimes. I mean, he was killed by Dr. Serizawa's patented bubble-bath formula, heartburn, missiles, and poor box office returns, got his ass kicked by a drunken, circus-escaped gorilla, then he was beaten by two newborn worms, yeah some “king”.

Aside from all the good points said already, the production phases of the movies, made and especially the one unmade, are particularly fascinating to me. Don't think there's ever been an Era Toho threw so many ideas at the wall in such rapid succession.

Seeing Junior growing up from this cute little tyke into an honestly adorable toddler into a powerful teenager was very satisfying.

Ifukube's scores for the Heisei era are flawless. Whether revisions of his earlier works (King Ghidorah, Rodan, and Godzilla's themes, those tracks from the more obscure Showa films being revised, or that MOTHRA SONG, for example), or making entirely new compositions (Mechagodzilla's theme, Battra's theme, Biollante's theme, Super X2, Super X, all of those military marches, SpaceGodzilla's theme, Destroyah's theme, etc). It was such a great range, from emotional to exciting.

Those beam wars, while sometimes overdone, look amazing. the special effects got way better from the Showa era.

All of the kaiju designs look amazing. The suits and puppetry are spectacular. (Aside from a few shots with visible strings, but I digress.)

The Super-X, Super-X2 (I don't know if it's an apt Godzilla theme, but MAN is it a great piece of music; so soaring and triumphant!), Biollante's theme, SpaceGodzilla's theme, and the reworked Godzilla theme are all standouts for me, so I heartily agree. That orchestration of the Mothra summoning song is probably my favorite rendition of it.

...Although, ironically, the majority of those were from pre-1991. :)

I thought Miki was kinda cool with her telepathy, Yuki letting go of his hatred for Godzilla, Azusa's relationship with Baby Godzilla was really cute, etc

Baby/Little/Junior being my favorite "son of Godzilla" across the franchise, having plenty of cute interactions with people as a baby, what I think is an honestly adorable design as a toddler, and actually looking like a young Godzilla as a teenager.

Yuki was a pretty cool character, probably the only character I liked post-1991.
