For good measure, the Jet Jaguar song. Punch Punch Punch!

There will be a small delay while I search for a proper widescreen version of the next film rather than the shitty 4:3 dvd rip I keep finding everywhere.

Well, the bad news I couldn't find a widescreen verion. The other bad news is it wouldn't have been worth finding one anyway because the film is incredibly dull.

Since this film marks the end of the Showa era Godzilla films, I decided to do some research to find out why there was such a long time between this and 1984's Return of Godzilla, which marked the start of the Heisei era of films.

As you can tell this research turned up phrases like "Showa era" and "Heisei era", named after the Japanese emperors of the time. These eras don't just apply to the Godzilla films, but to Japanese giant monters movies in general. The original Godzilla started the phenomenon in 1954, marking the start of the Showa era, which would last until 1980. After that there no significant monster movie productions until 1984 when Godzilla kicked it off again and started the Heisei era of monster movies.

Terror of Mechagodzilla was the least commercially succesful of the Showa era Godzilla movies, and I can understand why. Things had been slipping for a while though, with Godzilla vs Megalon being the first Godzilla movie to sell less than a million tickets. Which is a huge fall since Godzilla vs Gigan sold about 1.7 million. Godzilla vs Mechagodzilla climbed back up to 1.3 million but Terror of Mechagodzilla fell back below 1 million.

So the series was put on hold. It wasn't until 1984, the 30th anniversary of the franchise, that Godzilla returned in a direct sequel to the 1954 classic that I'm really looking forward to watching. After 15 Showa era movies of extremely varying quality it'll be nice to jump into the 80's with a new look and a new attitude.

I'll probably write it up tomorrow or friday, but I have to say that Godzilla vs Biollante is the weirdest god damn Godzilla film yet. Even weirder than Godzilla vs Megalon.

That sounds pretty mental. Very entertaining write up though.

Still can't believe Godzilla lost. How it's supposed to work is that they fight in the middle of the film and Godzilla loses, but then he get's stronger and wins at the end. In this film Biollante had that role.

I really don't want to watch another dbbed cropped mess, so this is postponed indefinitely until I find a decent version of the next film.

I finally found a good source for the rest of the movies so here we go. Originally the plan for the Heisei era films was to use all new monsters for Godzilla to fight, such as Biollante. But Godzilla vs Biollante performed poorly at the box office, and so the Godzilla franchise stepped into the 1990's with...

That was a really fun Godzilla movie.

There were 4 more Godzilla movies made after this one but before the American one. From 1991 to 1995 there was one a year.

I can't believe I started this topic almost exactly 4 years ago. My goal now is to finish the whole series before the new American Godzilla film releases in 2014.

It is an amazing encyclopedia of destruction, you have to finish it.

EDIT: hahahahahaha

in Godzilla: Final Wars he was 100 meters tall (about 328 feet). Godzilla was originally supposed to be 50 meters (about 164 feet) in Final Wars, but budgetary cutbacks in miniature sets forced this size change.

BTW in that last movie for some reason I got the impression when they recreated godzilla he was stronger and angrier was that the case?

All they actually say is that he's bigger, but I assume that means stronger. Didn't notice him being any angrier than in the last two movies.

So he's a villain at the end of this one? Was he considered good or bad before that?

Since 1984's Return of Godzilla, he's always been a villain. It was Ghidorah that actually saved Tokyo from Godzilla in the end, rather than it being the other way around.

There's no new age yet. The Heisei era of Godzilla movies ends in 1995. After that there's the Millenium series, which begins in 1999. The only continuity change so far has been Return of Godzilla, which was direct sequel to the original 1954 movie. I don't know if the Millenium series has a different contintuity, I haven't looked it up yet.

Dragon Zord would wreck Godzilla... Just saying.

Seriously though I do hope now that you are in teh 90s the films will at least reach power rangers standards.
