Godzilla vs the Smog Monster

Godzilla vs the Smog Monster (aka. Godzilla vs Hedorah)

I have fond memories of watching  Godzilla vs. the Smog Monster from when I was a teenager–and, oddly enough, it’s still enjoyable in the same vein as it was then–an odd combination of cheesy movie and environmental doomsday.   It’s an odd movie and a cult classic.

Godzilla: Tokyo S.O.S.

movie review of  Godzilla: Tokyo S.O.S.

Godzilla: Tokyo S.O.S.  is a sequel to  Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla. One year later,  Mechagodzilla is being repaired after the damage inflicted it by Godzilla.   Losing consistency from the previous film, a different crew is manning the Mechagodzilla. That’s a robotic Godzilla, built over the skeleton of the original Godzilla, that died at the end of the original  Godzilla movie in 1954.   The central character in this film is Yoshito Chûjô. He’s the son of Dr. Shin’ichi Chûjô, the star of the original Mothra movie.   Yoshito is the chief technician on the “Mecha G” project. He’s trying to get Mechagodzilla repaired in the event of Godzilla’s eventual next rampage.   However,  Mothra has something to say …

Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla

Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla (2002) Starring Yumiko Shaku, Shin Takuma

What is the measure of success for a movie? When the audience gets so wrapped up in the movie, that you start rooting for the protagonist. That’s exactly what happened during my first viewing of Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla. The basic plot has Godzilla attacking Tokyo … For the first time since 1954. A monster that the Japanese Defense Forces cannot stop. During the attack, Akane Yashiro (played by Yumiko Shaku) freezes. She blames herself for the deaths of her squad. Then, the Prime Minister of Japan initiates a risky plan. He authorizes and funds a plan to build a cybernetic robot. Mechagodzilla, built around the skeleton of the original Godzilla. The team is led by Tokumitsu Yuhara (played by Shin Takuma). He’s a widower. His young daughter is still trying to deal with the loss of her mother.

King Kong vs Godzilla

  • by

King Kong vs Godzilla, 1962

No one will mistake  King Kong vs Godzilla for high art — and that’s fine; it doesn’t pretend to be anything other than enjoyable silliness. It’s two men in rubber suits, fighting in choreographed style — shades of professional wrestling. The movie has a comically foolish executive decide to use King Kong for advertising.  And he decides to bring the real deal to Tokyo. At roughly the same time, Godzilla is released from an icy tomb. He heads back to Tokyo for the inevitable slugfest.

Godzilla Final Wars

Godzilla Final Wars (2004)

Godzilla Final Wars has been described as a remake of the classic Godzilla film, Destroy All Monsters — and to a degree, this is correct. However, my first impression is that it’s more along the lines of Power Rangers meet Godzilla. Godzilla appears in a flashback during the first few minutes of the film, in a fight with the human combat ship Gotengo, burying him in ice at the South Pole decades before the time of the movie — and he then isn’t seen for the next hour of the movie.

Instead, we see the Earth Defense Force fighting a mostly losing battle against various giant monsters seen in previous movies, including:
