I know Maguma was cut out of the American release. I don't think this would break the film or anything at all. I just think a bit more of him might have helped.

To me, even by sci fi standards, it's just absurd on the surface. Moving the earth out of orbit to avoid collision is just a lot more wild than alien invaders or even monsters (maybe that's just a personal perspective). But then I think that it seems to take itself more seriously than even the other Toho sci fi offerings. The recipe of surface absurdity with a (at least relatively more) serious presentation just didn't entirely gel for me.
To answer your second question, Gojira is my favorite Godzilla movie.
That's the thing - even to its vintage sci-fi peers Gorath is not serious science fiction - but it acts as a serious movie.
I guess to boil it down I feel like Gorath could stand to loosen up, given what it is. Give me absurdity and have it be fun (Ghidorah: Three Headed Monster) or give me something serious and have it be appropriately so (Gojira). I'm sure there is a way to blend the two but Gorath didn't quite nail it to me.
(I feel the need to repeat that I am just super critically probing here for discussion's sake. As I've said, I loved the movie and know I'll be watching it over and over again. I've already done a back to back viewing!)
