My favorite of all three ROM films? Rebirth of Mothra 1. IMO it is perhaps the most tolerable of the three, and for what it is it can be pretty enjoyable film to watch on a Saturday morning.
All Movie snobs can just f off IMO

They are all horrible, but I guess the first is slightly less so.

'Favorite' isn't the first word I'd use for these films - but I'll go with the first one, because it seemed like a semi-decent movie to me, whereas the third only has Grand King Ghidorah going for it, and the second CANNOT be defended whatsoever, IMO.

I don't like any of them, to be honest. If there was one that I had to sit through and watch it would be the first one.
As a kid I liked them, but as I grew older, I realized that it was merely Toho's attempt to challenge Shusuke Kaneko's Gamera films.

Right!? I especially like his theme music, its pretty good. ROM 2 is my favorite in all honesty. Aqua Mothra is one of my most favorite kaiju designs. I dont think this film is good by any means, nor do i think its better than the first. I just like it better.

ROM 3 for me. ROM 1 as a close second.

The first one. The first battle against Death Ghidorah was decently cool; that guy was brutal, and you do feel for the Mothras as they try (and fail miserably) to fight him. Adult Mothra's death scene was also very well done, one of the most emotionally powerful scenes in the genre. The soundtrack was also very good.

The second... I don't know. With the debatable exception of Dagarah, there aren't exactly any redeeming qualities. It's not as bad as people make it out to be, though. Just go into it expecting and prepared for crap, and it's watchable enough.

The third I need to watch again. The only time I've seen it was at the end of a marathon; I'd just watched the previous two ROMs and was pretty well Mothra'd out by the time the third came on. So the fact that I found it really boring might not have been entirely its fault.

The first one, while not very memorable, is a decent enough kiddie flick.

The second is execrable.

The third is rpetty clunk,y but I admit I'm anough of a sucker for Grand King Ghidorah that I voted for this one, for completely shallow reasons. Pretentious as I can come off in discussing these movies, every once in awhile I just show up for the damned monsters, and that's how it was with RoM3.

Everyone has different tastes; in my opinion Dagahra is the blandest, most unappealing Toho movie monster. There isn't anything about his design that really stands out to me: he's just a hulking dragon-ish mass with semi-jet wings.

I will concur that the soundtracks for all 3 films are at least decent.

Hey, how come there's no option to vote for Rebith of Mortha? That's the best of the lot!

...Umm, there IS. It's the one at the top.

Glasses, maybe, amigo?


Rebith of Mortha
Rebirth of Mothra

Compare the two, and consider a pair of glasses yourself if you don't see the differences.

It was a callback joke to an old thread.

Easily the first, but that's not saying much.

I think the only reason Mothra 3 gets as much of a pass as it does is because people are so hypnotized by the Ghidorah design. It's still a terrible movie.


Or maybe they enjoy it for the same reasons many fans including yourself enjoy the terrible 70s movies. Dumb fun is dumb fun regardless if it comes from the 70s or the 90s.
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.

First one. Second one was way too childish. Third one was better, but still less tolerable than the first. The opponents Mothra fights in these films were interesting, but the movies still sucked

im all for opinions, but by the quality of the films music and Dagarah's Special effects (regardless if your like the character itself) alone make it a Hundreds times better then Godzillas Revenge. it also should get points, for the set design and the set of the lost city for the monsters to battle in and around, godzillas revenge didnt have even a fibre of originality to it on any level, other than the stupid ass idea to make it be all a dream.
