This is good timing. I finished a huge marathon in May and a lot of my favorites and critical opinions on various films got shifted around.


PERSONALLY:

1. Godzilla (1954)
2. Mothra vs Godzilla (Sorry, GMK/GvD. You've been dethroned.)
3. Frankenstein vs Baragon (You two have been dethroned further still...)
4. GMK
5. Godzilla vs Destoroyah
6. Monster Zero
7. Terror of Mechagodzilla
8. Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019)
9. Godzilla vs Biollante
10. Godzilla 2000



CRITICALLY:

10/10
1. Godzilla (1954)
2. Mothra
9/10
3. Mothra vs Godzilla
8/10
4. Return of Godzilla
5. Godzilla vs Biollante
6. Godzilla vs Hedorah (With each viewing my opinion on this film gets higher. I can't believe I used to hate this one.)
7. Frankenstein vs Baragon
8. GMK
9. Godzilla (2014)
10. Shin Godzilla


I listed my favorites and best-to-worsts of my entire bloody marathon cause I'm a skreeonking nerd.

Godzilla (1954)
Godzilla vs Mechagodzilla (1974)
Terror of Mechagodzilla
Godzilla 2000
Godzilla, Mothra & King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All out Attack (my all time personal favorite)
Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla
Godzilla: Tokyo SOS
Godzilla (2014)
Shin Godzilla
Godzilla: King of the Monsters

There are a lot of Showa era films that were very close to making it (Mothra vs Godzilla, Ghidorah the Three Headed Monster, etc.), but I wanted to go with personal favorites, which meant a lot of childhood classics and thus a lot of Millennium films made it on the list instead.
