1964 sees a double shot of the King of the Monsters

Following the gvt2success of King Kong vs. Godzilla, 1964 was notable in the big guy’s history on the silver screen because it is the only year in which two Godzilla movies were released. It was also the first time that the films weren’t radically altered between the Japanese and the American versions. The first film released in 1964, Mothra vs. Godzilla (released in the US as Godzilla vs. the Thing) marked the last time for the Showa era of Godzilla movies where Godzilla was portrayed as the bad guy (he would return to being a menace in 1985)...

Godzilla- Two titans of the big screen come together

kkvgGodzilla may very well be one of the most popular giant movie monsters to appear on the silver screen, but he wasn’t the first. In 1933, powered by the stop motion effects from Willis O’Brien, King Kong thrilled audiences as the giant ape battled dinosaurs on his home Skull Island and later fought the army in the streets of New York City,all the while protecting the object of his affections, Ann Darrow. Son of Kong followed shortly thereafter, but the big ape himself didn’t appear on the big screen for another 29 years...

Godzilla returns in his first sequel

godzillaraidsagain3In between Gojira (1954) and the Americanized version Godzilla, King of the Monsters (1956), a sequel was rushed to the screen in Japan under the name of Gojira no gyakushu in 1955, which was later released to American audiences (again with inserted scenes) in 1959 under the name Godzilla Raids Again. Director Motoyoshi Oda took over as director for the sequel, which was the last in the franchise to be shot in black and white and the first to pit Godzilla against another giant monster. Most fans will agree that the Japanese version of this film (if you can find it) is the definitive version, as the American version pasted in scenes which made little sense and produced a more than likely unintended comedic effect...

Godzilla- The beginning of a legend

godzillakotmArguably one of the most popular monsters in the history of cinema, Godzilla turns 60 this year. He’s gone through many changes over the years, but he made his first appearance in the Japanese film Gojira, directed by Ishiro Honda and released onto the screen in 1954. The film was released through Toho Co., Ltd., beginning the studio’s longtime association with the character over 28 movies. The film’s tale was a cautionary one, delving into the impact on the environment caused by the testing of nuclear weapons in the South Pacific. Godzilla was a giant prehistoric creature awakened by these nuclear blasts, causing him to rise up and wreak havoc on the modern world...

Godzilla- A month long introspective begins

Godzilla,_King_of_the_Monsters_Wallpaper__yvt2The new Godzilla movie is just a month away from hitting theaters, and I couldn’t be more excited. Godzilla has long been my favorite movie monster, and I’ve seen a great many of his films over the fifty one years of my lifetime. The big fire-breathing, radioactive lizard hits 60 this year, and it’s only fitting that his birthday be honored with a major new release to the silver screen. In honor of Godzilla’s 60th, I’ll be doing a month long introspective, touching on the thirty one films that have starred the big guy (Gareth Edwards take on the King of Monsters will be his 32nd feature film), as well as the comic books, games, and cartoons that have come out over the years...
