Godzilla, King of the Monsters!
Science Fiction • NR • 1956 • 1 hr 21 min
Not only a classic monster film but also the longest running film franchise of all time. So far.
He is the King the first and one of the best
The King of the Monsters himself. Probably one of the best classic films of all time. Even after almost 80 years, it's still fun to watch.
Classic American version of the original Gojira film
This American remake of the classic Japanese kaiju movie does it justice but loses the magic.
It’s like if you took a masterpiece like the original film and just made it into a “Godzilla Movie” instead of an actual movie.
Godzilla and the rest of the monsters are entertaining as always
Keeps much of the original's chilling atmosphere. At the same time, makes the classic horror more accessible to a casual audience.
Can not beat the classic it means so much to the Godzillas of today while it’s a monster movie it is an allegorical story as well
Solid example of what made kaiju films a good watch
During an assignment, foreign correspondent Steve Martin spends a layover in Tokyo and is caught amid the rampage of an unstoppable prehistoric monster the Japanese call 'Godzilla'. The only hope for both Japan and the world lies on a secret weapon, which may prove more destructive than the monster itself.
A prehistoric monster called Gigantis emerges alongside another creature named Angurus.
Eric Carter of United Nation News is joined by Dr. Arnold Johnson as a prehistoric monster emerges from hibernation while a pharmaceutical company seeks publicity with their own monster.
Originally released in Japan as "The Return of Godzilla" in 1984, this is the heavily re-edited, re-titled "Godzilla 1985". Adding in new footage of Raymond Burr, this 16th Godzilla film ignores all previous sequels and serves as a direct follow-up to the 1956 "Godzilla King of the Monsters", which also featured scenes with Burr edited into 1954's "Godzilla". This film restores the darker tone of the original, as we witness the nuclear destruction of giant lizard terrorizing Japan.
